More Guns in Church! (Concluded)

I commented on the incident of Rev. Phillip Mielke of Big Lake Alaska here, when he was charged with manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide for the killing of two men who were burglarizing his church. Well, his trial is over, and he’s been acquitted of all charges.

Of course, there’s the obligatory reference to “taking the law into their own hands” in the story, and the obligatory call to depend on the State for the protection of yourself and your property.

Nice to see that an Alaskan jury still can reason. Sometimes the justice system does get it right.

UPDATE: Ravenwood comments, and does a better job than I did.
