Artsmom, a grand jury was convened and it made its findings with respect to what 17 witnesses testified to over a two day period. [Grand juries are seldom used here in Iowa, and their proceedings are sealed after their findings are published.] What does it tell you concerning their findings, that seven people had only to deliberate one hour before coming back with a "no bill".
That would indicate to me that the facts and the supposition, that use of deadly force was justified in this particular case. Tell your sons that in this case the people have spoken.
Also pointing out that the lifestyle this individual led, directly resulted in his demise. Not only affecting him but many others as well, his children, family members etc... People of Mr. Paces ilk are concerned with nothing more than their own gratification at the expense of others. Now that he is dead, are we supposed to feel compassion for an individual who had none while he was living?
People like Mr. Pace fail at taking responsibility for their actions, thinking the world owes them something. After 25 years of criminal activity it caught up with him, so don't **** on my leg and tell me it's raining.
This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend, it is my life. I must master itas i master my life.Without me my rifle is useless, without my rifle i am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I Will. Before God i swear this creed. My rifle and myself are defenders of my country. We are masters of our enemy. We are saviours of my life. So be it until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.
