drop the gun charge? im sick of iowas courts. wanna get away with crime? be a meth head or sexual predator and iowa courts will slap you onthe wrist. some 19 yo girl who commited the “crime” of possessing pot…… iowa courts suddenly need to destroy her life with the full weight of the law her butt is grass. dont matter that major public opinion is that nobody half smart gives a damn about pot. we want the courts to charge violent drug addicts who break into family homes with stolen guns sentenced to the max for any and all of their criminal behavior i think the judges are pussies afraid to do the right thing and cops who write tickets or arrest ppl for anything other than violent crime or theft need new jobs. enforcing laws against victimless crime makes tyrrants not leo.

” cops who write tickets or arrest ppl for anything other than violent crime or theft need new jobs.”

So, I can come over and burn your house to the ground, and you would be fine with that?

You, my friend, are a moron. There has to be rules, rather we like them or not. There are to many people that would look for the above type of things just because they could get away with doing something shitty to some one else.

you can try. my family live there id call it attempted murder and shoot you on stand your ground. youre the moron. obviously arson is a violent crime. you keep being an internet smart/tough guy maybe someday youll impress someone. i dont need cops and consequence to do the right thing or defend myself. they need to be worried about heroin and violence. in your dumb hypo how would cops save my home from your arson? they have teleportation? cops dont fight fire. you are a stupid piece of shit pussy lol.

my understanding is youre supposed to shoot neck tattooed meth addicts when they break into your home or threaten your safety in the st. we have castle doctrine and stand your ground use them when need be. this aint rochester iowa wont ruin your life for self defense like your name is alexander. poor kid minnesota is out to get him becaus3 they value the lives of trash above those of real human beings.

Shooting them makes more sense than anything else.
