This was a real case in suburban Maine, where a young mother was hanging clothes IN HER BACKYARD, and was wearing white mittens. She was mistaken for a deer, shot and killed. The case went to court where the hunter was tried for manslaughter. A jury of his peers (old, feeble minded hicks with poor vision) found him .............drum roll.................. not guilty.
The lesson here? Come hunting season, stay in your house til it's over. Unnerstand, son?
Unfreaking believable. I wonder if someone shot the hunter on the street, thinking he was a menace to society, would receive the same treatment from a jury. Like I said in an earlier post, it's nice to see gun advocates actually accept some responsibility for the deadly weapons they carry around.
Where's Dexter when you need him?
