Grandfather Of Teen Killed In Oklahoma Burglary Says Homeowner's AR15 Made For 'Unfair' Fight [Watch]

Mike Miller, Independent Journal Review

Three teen suspects were shot and killed during an attempted home burglary in Oklahoma last week.

Now the grandfather of one of the suspects says the “fight” was “unfair” — because the homeowner's son killed the trio with an AR-15.

As reported by KTUL in Tulsa, Leroy Schumacher, grandfather of 17-year-old Jacob Redfearn, said the teenagers behaved “stupidly,” but they didn't deserve to die for it.

“What these three boys did was stupid. They knew they could be punished for it. But they did not deserve to die.

Brass knuckles against an AR-15? C'mon. Who was afraid for their life?"

Sheriff's deputies believe the shooting was in self-defense — Schumacher disagrees.

“There's got to be a limit to that [self defense] law. He shot all three of them. There was no need for that.”

The other two suspects were 16-year-old Max Cook and 19-year-old Jake Woodruff.

Schumacher broke into tears as he said “maybe some kids will learn from this.”

“These boys' families are going to suffer the rest of their lives. We have to live with this the rest of our lives. The past is history [...] But you can damn sure learn from it. And maybe some kids will learn from this.”

Cambodia's Deadly Experiment

In the 1950s, students started gathering in Paris. They were reading Karl Marx. They were forming book clubs. They were trying to come up with a better version of society. One that moved away from the division of labor. One that moved away from the capitalism in the big cities that they so despised. ... One of those students would change his name to Pol Pot. He and his colleagues formed a new political party, a takeover in Cambodia. They called themsevles the Khmer Rouge. ... Under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, one out of four people in that country died in less than four years.
