So three teen thugs break into a home to rob the owners at gunpoint, get shot, and now the grandfather says it is unfair!
Who says the only snowflakes are young people? Is he serious? No wonder his teen grandson ended up being a thug! Entitlement mentality at its worst!
This is all the grandfather’s fault! If he raised his son, and thus his grandson, with this type of stupidity, he is responsible for the ramifications. He has his grandson’s blood on his own hands. Period.
Leroy Schumacher was the grandfather of 17-year-old Jacob Redfearn. Jacob was one of three Oklahoma teenagers were killed last week when they broke into a house and were met by a homeowner with an AR15.
Watch this insanity from Grandpa Moron:
According to KTUL-TV, Schumacher believes the death of Redfearn was unjustified because the homeowner’s AR15 gave him an unfair advantage over the three teen burglars.
Speaking to KTUL, Schumacher acknowledged that breaking into a house was “stupid,” but death was not the appropriate consequence.
“What these three boys did was stupid,” Schumacher said. “They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die.”
“Brass knuckles against an AR-15? C’mon. Who was afraid for their life?” Schumacher said.
The homeowner who pulled the trigger has not been charged with any crimes because police say he acted in self-defense. But Schumacher reinterated his belief 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,” he told KTUL.
In addition to Redfearn, 19-year-old Maxwell Cook and 16-year-old Jake Woodruff were also shot and killed in the home invasion. Getaway driver, 21-year-old Elizabeth Rodriguez was uninjured but later arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of second-degree burglary.
Police also say Rodriguez admitted to planning the burglary.
More from CNN:
Rodriguez went to police in Broken Arrow, a Tulsa suburb, and told them she was involved.
Oklahoma state law says that first-degree murder occurs if “any other person takes the life of a human being during … first degree burglary.” Another condition is if a person causes the death of another person with “malice aforethought.”
In the end, Schumacher said he supports the Second Amendment right to bear arms but doesn’t agree with killing home invaders.
“These boys’ families are going to suffer with this the rest of their lives, we have to live with this the rest of our lives,” he said. “You can’t change history, but you can damn sure learn from it, and maybe some kids will learn from this.”
What does he think that 2nd Amendment is for? It is for using force, including deadly force, to protect oneself, one’s family, and one’s property.
Listen here gramps! What was unfair was that three teen thugs broke into some innocent people’s home with the intent of using bodily harm to take something that was not theirs. What was unfair is that you obviously did not do a good enough job teaching your grandson that what you do is get a job and earn what you have.
Maybe if you had taught your grandson to pick better friends, this might not have happened? It has nothing to do with “deserve to die”. It is called consequences for actions gramps; sometimes those consequences are deadly!
You should be ashamed of yourself for even thinking such things, let alone being responsible for contributing to the mentality that started the whole situation in the first place.
Shame on you and your bad behavior!
