I'm afraid that I agree with the judge, that murder was not proved beyond reasonable doubt.
But it is obvious that he meant to kill the person in the toliet.
And I blame the gun culture in letting people have guns that are extremely powerful and are seen as the means to defend yourself. Where you have guns, you have accidental deaths, rash use of them and a reckless regard for human life.
I can understand the Scottish 'Yes' crowd. Britain is ruled from London, a long way in distance and views from Scotland. It is ruled in a way that exacerbates inequality and gives more power than desirable to multi-national businesses and private companies.
Both Labour and Conservatives think that state services should be part or wholly privatised, leaving both workers and clients short changed. The SNP are offering a more cooperative and people-centered government which is very attractive.
But I agree that to vote 'yes' in the referendum, you have to be very brave, or reckless!
