All who call on the name of the Lord will be saved. Acts 2:21 Remember it. A simple Save me Lord Jesus makes all the difference when you're facing the wrong side of eternity.

Sounds like the one in the neck outside (finisher) might have been the main issue. He coulda called the popo too but probably had reasons not to. 19years for manslaughter is a bit steep but how exactly does arriving armed and brutally killing a man count as manslaughter?

It was over the top to chase the guy outside, down the street, and stab him to death.

See we have different laws here. Because the guy went in his own house to confront them it's a different case compared to if he was in his home when they broke in.
We have something called the castle doctrine.
Under the doctrine you can use any type of weapon to defend yourself (but you can't lay traps), your family etc but if you were to step over the threshold of your house then that be becomes a crime as you have pursued them which isn't classed as protecting yourself.

Maybe the judge needs a home "visit".

haha i luv your av

i dunno how britons think. here, we assume the guy is armed, but you might have a different mentality, not having guns. But they could easily have knives and other weapons.
