Grand Jury Indicts Teen, Does Not Indict Homeowner

Tyler Morning Telegraph - GREGG COUNTY JURY INDICTS TEENAGER IN FATAL BURGLARY A burglary took place on June 19. Allegedly 4 teens were involved. The homeowner shot and killed one, 2 face trials in juvenile court, the third, 17-year-old Gregory Lynn Allison II has been charged as an adult with burglary.

In some states - like Florida - he could have faced murder charges (someone gets killed during a crime, it is the fault of the people who initiated the criminal act.) Still, I think justice is being served. The Grand Jury did not indict the homeowner, since he was clearly acting in self-defense.
