    I'll probably not be to popular for saying this but I don't think that Griffin should have been charged.
    Hammock was on Griffin's porch threatening him.
    Possibly you should not go to your neighbors house acting like an idiot.
    His family seems to think that it was no big deal but clearly Hammock had an aggresive temper. He had no right to go threaten someone and in doing so should not have chosen someone who owns a 12gauge.
    If Hammock had shown up at griffins with the stick and broke the window and griffin had no means to defend himself who do you think would be in jail right now?
