How else was he gonna get his money?

The back-asswards tumble of American society down the toilet drain continues:

A Miami woman shot and killed a teenage home intruder last week, authorities said. Now, relatives of the teen are saying she acted unjustly and should be prosecuted.

Trevon Johnson, 17, burglarized the home of a 54-year-old old woman last Thursday, according to Miami-Dade police.

“She observed a subject leaving the home through the rear,” police Detective Dan Ferrin told WFOR-TV.

A confrontation then took place, according to police, and shots were fired. Police said they were on scene seconds after the shooting and performed CPR on the teen. Johnson was then rushed to the hospital where doctors pronounced him dead.

“What’s wrong with her?” Johnson’s sister Nisha Johnson asked. “She did not have to shoot him.”

Johnson told WFOR her brother was a student at D. A. Dorsey Technical College. She and other relatives are outraged by the shooting.

“I don’t care if she have her gun license or any of that. That is way beyond the law … way beyond,” Johnson’s cousin Nautika Harris told WFOR. “He was not supposed to die like this. He had a future ahead of him. Trevon had goals … he was a funny guy, very big on education, loved learning.”

“You have to look at it from every child’s point of view that was raised in the hood,” Harris continued. “You have to understand … how he gonna get his money to have clothes to go to school? You have to look at it from his point of view.”

No one, but no one who illegally enters a house to rob it has any expectation of personal safety. None. Period.

There appears to be a tad bit more of a gray area here in that the suspect had already exited the home. However, if the homeowner confronted the suspect as noted, and the suspect responded with hostile intent, well, again, see above.

But the response of the suspect's relatives is beyond amazing. Is this what we're to expect next in American society? That merely because someone was raised in the "hood" others should have a "reasonable expectation" that such individuals may rob them?

The answer to your question is "Yes". The term "the Hood" indicates African-Americans and they have been brainwashed for decades to believe themselves oppressed victims of white privilege and therefore are entitled to a sort of "spoils system" of social interaction. IOW, anything not nailed down they are entitled to.
