|Another Kid That Should Have Run|
Spooner thought he had a suspicious neighbor. Somebody stole one of his guns. Spooner , knowing that, "these assholes always get away", accuse Simmons of stealing it. Simmons was an athletic looking teenager. Spooner was a fragile old man.
Spooner brought a gun with him for protection. After all, he was convinced that he knew who stole his other gun. Simmons, being young and dumb, chose to stand his ground. Suddenly, maybe because Spooner was in fear for his well being, shot Simmons. Shot him dead.
What happened? Was Spooner justified? I am not talking law here. I am talking right and wrong.
Should Spooner have called the cops? Is Simmons responsible for his own demise? Did Simmons have it coming? If Spooner was afraid, was he justified in shooting Simmons?
In this case, one can see for themselves: --
Simmons should have ran or at least carried a gun.
