In response to zz3, unfortunately, your ignorance is very clear and people shouldn't comment on situations that they know nothing about. Mr Perkins was a beautiful person who was taken far too soon by an ugly individual. Shame on YOU for being so heartless and insensitive to address any undeserving individual of a violent crime as a 'cockroach'. YOU are the pest who the honorable people of the world have to deal with - refusing to recognize how your ignorance and words can affect others.
As far as the comments about conceal carry and stand your ground, stand your ground protects you on your property or in your vehicle when you have feared for your life, and it is NOT legal in Ohio. Only the castle law is, and that protects you only while in your home and you have feared for your life. Also, conceal carry is a huge right and responsibility that cannot be taken lightly. And just as with anything else, anyone has the ability to abuse and disrespect that responsibility and turn it into a safety hazard rather than a good thing. So this is not just a black and white issue of 'let the cockroaches kill eachother off and the rest of us can conceal carry'.
