A 70-year-old homeowner went out to his pickup truck Wednesday morning and found some drug paraphernalia in the back. The person to whom that drug paraphernalia belongs, 17-year-old Vidal Herrera, came asking for it back. The homeowner said he would not return it to him. That's when things got violent.Without the means to equalize the situation, the old or the infirm would be at the mercy of the young and the violent.
This is viewed as legal self-defense.
