You may remember that we recently discussed a home invasion in which four perps attacked a homeowner, and two perps were killed by defensive gunfire. Gwen, the anti-gun bigot over at GASG, called this a murder, except she mixed up the offender; she was blaming the homeowner, who has been declared "clearly within his rights" by the DA.
The two survivors have been charged with manslaughter:
Pico and Pfister are being prosecuted because they were part of the conspiracy that resulted in the killing of Johnson and Trantham, Fayette said. Their actions were reckless and the possibility that one or more of them could have been killed was "foreseeable," especially in Alaska, which has a large percentage of armed residents, Fayette said.
Interestingly, the homeowner had some pot plants in his house. That would technically be a federal firearms violation. It could also make the defensive use of the firearm a crime under Alaska law (you can't use a firearm to defend your drug stash). Because the DA and police were so supportive of the homeowner I'm thinking that the homeowner may have had a medical marijuana card or something.
The bottom line though is that this looks like it is being handled by the authorities as a legit DGU; even better for justice, they're holding the actual criminals accountable for getting their buddies shot and killed.
