right to defense EXCEPT when offender is the State

A man gets shot by an intruder on his own land, the killer publicly admits to it and walks away scot free.

You may think to yourself, is this bizarro world? Almost!

Home invasions have been the big story in many metro areas across the country. A home invasion usually involves crooks busting into property and making a mad dash for valuables during broad daylight.

The question is, what if that invader is the State? Well, here's the answer: If the State is the invader, the State gets free reign and suffers virtually no consequences.

Clyde Coffey hunts on his own private property and had likely done so for years. He sees an unknown man on his land and shoots him.

Officer Mike Minton of the Wildlife Commission was "checking for hunting licenses, bag limits and bait traps" on Coffey's private property. Is this not trespassing? Only if you are not employed by the State.

Coffey then demands that the tax devourer leave his property. This alone should have prompted Minton to leave. But, since his employed with the State, he is not considered a trespasser.

This story got little traction in the mainstream media because it would question the government.

But a story of a man getting killed by an intruder and that intruder being cleared is not news?

God bless Clyde Coffey and his family.
