It's Official - Daniel Meade Gets Away with Manslaughter - Another Stand Your Ground Tragedy

Local news reports (further to our earlier post)

A man who fatally shot his 14-year-old step-daughter in their home after mistaking her for burglar will not face criminal charges, according to the 4th Judicial District Attorney's Office.

A Grand Jury determined that no criminal charges should be brought against Daniel Meade, a decorated Fort Carson soldier, in the death of Kiana O'Neil on Dec. 23.
According to a dispatch recording, Meade opened fire on the girl about 6 a.m. as she was crawling through a window of the family's home in the 4000 block of Ascendant Drive, off North Carefree Circle and Peterson Road.


  1. A big tough Marine had no other option than to shoot a teenage girl coming through the window? He never considered it was his stepdaughter sneaking in as teenagers have done for centuries? He couldn't just physically overpower her until he found out what was going on? Gun loons like to kill.

    1. Yeah, gun lunatics empowered by the Stand Your Ground mentality they have worked so hard for do indeed like to kill.

  2. Was the teenage girl a minority? I could see that making it difficult for a DA to be too concerned.
