Who in the heck is in their front yard at 4am??? Something tells me there was illegal drugs involved.
Rockdale County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Deputy Lee Thomas posted on the department's Facebook that officers were called to a residence on White Oak Court in Conyers, Georgia. Deputies found three boys with gunshot wounds and began administering first aid. Two of the teens were taken to an area hospital, where they were pronounced dead from their injuries, while one was pronounced dead at the shooting scene. They were later identified as juveniles from Conyers, Thomas said.The sheriff's office said the three were killed during a shoot-out with the resident on White Oak Court. Investigators say the three teens had their faces covered as they approached the residence and attempted to rob three people in the front yard, Thomas said. One of the attempted-robbery suspects fired shots at the residents before one of the intended robbery victims returned fire.Georgia law says, "A person who uses threats or force in accordance with Code Section 16-3-21, relating to the use of force in defense of self or others, Code Section 16-3-23, relating to the use of force in defense of a habitation, or Code Section 16-3-24, relating to the use of force in defense of property other than a habitation, has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and use force as provided in said Code sections, including deadly force."The victims of the attempted robbery were not hurt.I got this a few minutes ago on the Rockdale, Ga. site. Clears the water a bit. Even if the home owner is a druggie and the predators tried to rip him off. The shoot is still good according to the articles I've read. Ironically, this is the case it is the first time I ever rooted for a drug dealer.
The investigation is still active, and the Sheriff's Office is asking for anyone with information in connection with the shootings to contact the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office at 770-278-8000 and speak with Investigator Dwayne Smith or Sgt. Jeremy Best.
How could it be anything except a stand your ground case? That is obfuscation, and a muddying of the water. Any jury will find in the shooters favor.
YAY!The three teens allegedly approached the home and attempted to rob three people in the front yard, the sheriff's office said Monday night. One of the attempted robbery suspects purportedly brandished a handgun and fired shots at the residents before one returned fire. All three attempted robbery suspects were killed during the exchange, authorities said.
Because of the youths opened fire with a handgun and the homeowner respinded, it's not a stand-your-ground case at all. It's a cut and dry case of justifiable homicide in self-defense.How could it be anything except a stand your ground case? That is obfuscation, and a muddying of the water.

They were there handing out Watch Tower pamphlets, or selling Girl Scout Cookies. The problems the shooter faces is the slanted bias of the news and neighbor comments. Those two elements make me wonder about a collusion to create a Ghetto Lottery win for families of the predators. I knew an awful lot of good people when I lived in Atlanta. I also made a lot of money investigating insurance fraud cases. The civil case in Georgia it could go either way. :thumbsup:

After watching the videos, I'd have to say, "It is a nice neighborhood". It seems they were 'city thugs' plying their trade in the county where the pickings were percieved to be fatter.4 am, 3 guys in the front yard. 3 guys approached wearing masks. Nice neighborhood!
