  •  SYG= State endorsement of vigilante "justice"... (9+ / 0-)

    The linked report shows a chilling pattern of vigilantism, where any person with a gun can roam about, targeting "suspicious people" and is apparently authorized by the State to act as judge, jury and executioner, and the victim(s) civil rights are of no consequence to the State

    This isn't the castle doctrine; it's a monstrous  perversion of the castle doctrine, encouraging extra-legal mob rule, allowing  self-appointed enforcers to take the law into their own hands, and suffer no consequences for doing so.
