    Kentucky Castle Doctrine put to the test

    I realize this is a little old, but about a month ago, Kentucky's Castle Doctrine as it applies to a motor vehicle was put to the test.

    One must be wary of the mentality creating the problem or the law creating the crime.

    I love America and the Constitution, if you don't then get out!

    I love it because the prosecutor didn't try to weasel his way around the law and find SOME reason to charge the guy with something.

    Thumbs up Castle Doctrine

    The Castle Doctrine should be a part of the law of all 50 states, IMHO. We have the castle doctrine here in South Carolina, and it's good to see it at work in Kentucky.

    We also have a great entree in South Carolina called fried chicken. Do y'all have that in Kentucky as well?

    Essentially should be a constitutional right. Certainly when the constitution was written, this was so much a part of assumed rights that the Founders couldn't even conceive of needing to codify it.

    The Castle Doctrine extends naturally from several rights. First, the right to self defense as enshrined in, among other places, the 2nd Amendment. Second, ownership of one's own homes, vehicles, etc. stems from the common law right to private property, and finally, the right to free association as enshrined in the 1st Amendment.

    We have the right to decline to associate with people, esp. criminals, on/in our own property and thereby to defend ourselves and our property from criminal trespass and other forms of forced association and/or criminal violations.

    Don't retreat. Just reload.
