Our youth need to learn that actions, all actions, have consequences…..some good…some bad.
Unfortunately, on March 27 Max Cook, Jacob Redfearn, and Jaykob Woodruff, aged between 15 and 19, were killed during the alleged home invasion in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma after being confronted by the homeowner’s 23-year old son. The three had a getaway driver who was also arrested, 21-year-old Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez, who fled the scene after hearing gunshots.
Leroy Schumacher, the grandfather of one of three suspects who was killed says the use of an AR-15 against the suspects was “unfair.”
Sorry grandpa, but a fight for your life isn’t a situation you would want to be fair in any way.
In an interview for KTUL Schumacher acknowledged: “What these three boys did was stupid. They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die.”
He said: “Brass knuckles against an AR-15? C’mon. Who was afraid for their life?”
The homeowner who shot the teenagers has not been charged with any crimes because police say he acted in self-defense. But Schumacher claims that the consequences literally did not fit the crime.
“There’s got to be a limit to that law, I mean he shot all three of them — there was no need for that.”
Listen to the house owner’s dramatic 911 call:
Wagoner County Sheriff’s deputy Nick Mahoney said the suspects “were wearing all-black clothing, masks, and gloves” and allegedly “forced their way into the home through a glass door in the back.” He also said that “investigators found a knife on one of the deceased in the kitchen and brass knuckles on the other.”
In my opinion, this is why kids are bad. Adults make excuses for their bad behavior. Forget the fact these people broke into a home to rob the homeowners.
While tragic these young boys died, they chose to break into someone’s home. I guess the lesson to learn here is don’t break into someone else’s house or you might end up dead!!!
