    If Castle Doctrine would apply here, then anyone could shoot anyone else in any home. That’s nuts!!!

    Apparently in TX, yes. The way their law is written. Seems the judge's hands were somewhat tied. But it gives her an out IMO. I didn't realize that at first.

    They wanted to know more about manslaughter and castle doctrine... judge said that she wasn’t going to elaborate and to use the info they were given

    It's just the facts. Him in his underwear and trying to enjoy his privacy eating ice cream. Her executing him. I'm just emotional. The makeup of him vs the makeup of her. Her walking establishes the privileges in our country being ultimate. IMO. I'm just scared.

    They asked for a clearer definition of manslaughter and the Castle Doctrine. Of course the judge told them to rely on the instructions.

    Yup. As long as they had "reason to believe" the other person was an intruder in their home.

    Agreed. Again, the fact that I’m not part of the jury really messes with me. I hate having no control over situations. Lol

    can you imagine how that could be used...some thief in a garage contending it is his "castle"...another attempt to protect criminals.

    I do not think it was reasonable for her to shoot him.

    I’m hoping those two questions were clarifications to walk away from them.

    I'm sure there is a lot. They are asking questions, so the wheels are turning. I just wish I knew it what direction. I hate this!!

    they were definitions of castle doctrine and manslaughter...in other words what that tells me...confusing for lay people and murder is probably off the table. Judge could offer no further clarification to them.
