If you go on a rape rampage and rape across the country, you will likely have the Feds after you. When they catch you, you will likely be subject to the separate crimes of the various acts of rape in the various states and subject to convictions from each. Do you know what "extraditable" means?
I hope, after Humpty Trumpty's remarks today, that EVERY NFL player takes a knee tomorrow! Not against the flag, or the U.S., but against what is happening, under Trump, to this country! (And the NHL and NBA also.) I love America, but not what is happening to it or the attitude of the radicals within it.
I'm not saying this guy, in this situation, is at fault. If he was at right, more power to him. I was generalizing, I wasn't there. I'm happy if he did the right thing. I'm just saying, America is out of control, it's Dodge City all over again! We have enough ATTITUDE in this country to destroy humanity as we know it. Certainly the America I once knew!
I would like to ask a Question: "Make America Great Again". "Again" means there was a time when we were great. I would like to know when THAT time was! I lived through what I thought was it's greatest time, a matter of opinion. I see no similarity to what most of those wearing "The Hat" want to return to, and what I saw as America's greatness. What do they want? A gun or knife in every hand, I guess. No Government, the Poor dying, the workers working for whatever the capitalists want to pay them, health care commensurate with your ability to earn and THAT commensurate with your ability to pay for the education needed, and THAT on your CEO's calculations on whether he can get cheaper labor in another country!
We will not solve our problems with vigilantism. I'm just saying this guy has every right to defend himself, So much of this does NOT make America great again. But, I digress...........
Armed robber enters a home and shot dead that is between private parties?
The robber committed a criminal offense as a private party against another private party. Due to the criminal breach, the State brings charges. Regardless of the outcome of the criminal case, the victim can sue the robber (his estate) for damages. Also, regardless of criminal charges, the family of the dead robber can sue for their loss. These lawsuits are not criminal cases, but civil. OJ won in
criminal court and lost in civil court.
Wasn't it you that said robbery was a state crime and not a federal crime
Yeah. The state would bring the criminal charge against the robber. The robber is bringing civil charges against the citizen. The federal government isn't doing anything.
So was it a crime or difference between two parties
As with most crimes, it was both.
Sometimes local and state authorities will notify federal authorities, but often times federal agents are where they need to be (on federal land). Read your source again. Some crimes are Federal due to their nature (guns with drugs), but most crimes are federal only due to geography (federal land or cross borders).
Sometimes a local case is trumped by an ongoing federal investigation, in which case a stereotypical movie scene plays out wherein the Feds say "we'll take it from here boys" followed by a chorus of groans from the locals.
A true statement Chinaman, good job.
Do you know that a person can be sued when no criminal offense even occurred? That's because a private party can sue you for just about anything. As for crime, the citizen broke no criminal statute, which is why the Chief of Police supported him in his statement
