Big Lake pastor to stand trial in killing of chapel intruders
GRAND JURY: Mielke indicted on charges of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide
Had this happened in Texas, no charges would have been filed. Note the money quote:
The location of the men’s wounds probably swayed the jury, as did the distance between the chapel and Mielke’s home and the fact that the pastor chose to confront the men rather than call 911, Kalytiak said.
Yup. Depend on the State. They’ll show up after a while and take a report.
I bet the spree of church break-ins has stopped.
UPDATE: Not guilty on all charges.
