Horde Legionnaire Andy Hall was nice enough to forward this story of a guy who went looking for a fight, found one, killed somebody and tried to retreat behind the law. He was found guilty, anyway:
Jurors decided that Rodriguez provoked Danaher and others by going to their party to demand they quiet down just after midnight on May 2, 2010. Defense lawyers said Rodriguez should have been found not guilty of murder because it was self-defense.Rodriguez and his family lived near Danaher, an elementary school teacher, and his family in rural Huffman. Rodriguez approached the party, upset by the noise, and videotaped the encounter.During the last seven minutes of the 22-minute video, Rodriguez can be heard telling the partygoers he wants them to turn down the noise, then that he is afraid the drunken group will hurt him.The video goes to black seconds after several men, including Danaher charge him. There is a cackling laugh, then a gunshot and the camera falls.
