Virginia Woman Fatally Shoots Boyfriend Mistaking Him for an Intruder

A Moneta woman shot and killed her boyfriend Friday when he returned early and unannounced from a business trip and she mistook him for an intruder in their home, she told Franklin County sheriff’s deputies.
The woman was home alone Friday with her toddler son in the house she shared with her boyfriend, Herbert Aragon Jr., 37, in the 100 block of Peaks View Lane on The Waterfront golf course at Smith Mountain Lake, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

She had just given her son a bath and noticed that the front door, which she had locked, was open, she told deputies. Afraid an intruder was in the house, she got her handgun and searched the house.

Startled by a man, she fired the gun, she told deputies. The man, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was identified as Aragon, according to the news release.

    When the law is unjust, it is no law at all. Home invasions are a violation of privacy, and yes, I call these actions invasions, "legal" or not.

    So you decide which laws you will follow, or not? Sounds like breaking the law to me.

    Mine gets carried concealed. And yes, if I ever have occasion to go to Starbucks, it will be with me.

    This was after Starbucks asked their customers to leave their guns at home. Seems another example that Greg will defy anyone's rules and regulations.

    I think the United States should invade California and impose regime change on that failed state.

    I'd say that's a promotion for breaking the law.

    Stupid rules require increasing cleverness to circumvent.

    Seems he's actively looking for ways to break the rule of law.

    Some people would call assaulting a drug dealer civic minded.

    I would call it a thug assaulting another person. Call the cops.

    In an ideal world, beating up someone is the wrong action, but we don't live in an ideal world, and I have more feeling for the friend struggling with addiction than I do for the dealer.

    It would be one thing if this happened in front of you, but you said you would go looking for him. Doesn't sound like a law abiding citizen to me.

    I've said it before: He should be given a lethal injection of boiling lard.

    That's not what the law prescribes. Greg has his own ideas.

    Revenge is justice. This man is a traitor and a terrorist. He deserves a far more gruesome death than our law allows.

    Going outside the law to get his bloody revenge. Revenge is not justice.

    When the law makes no sense by banning or restricting something that should not be covered by law, good people don't expect such foolishness or resist the violation. The responsibility lies with the criminal legislators and executives who push these laws in the first place.

    Blame the people. They elected these criminals into office. You change law in a civil society, not ignore, or break it.

    These kind of statements can only be read as the author having disregard for the law, promoting illegal acts, and clearly stating he would participate in such illegal behavior.
