Another Young Unarmed Black Man Killed: Castle Doctrine Law Protecting Shooter

All sorts of interesting state laws are being used to justify the killings of black boys across the country. By now we’re all well versed in Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law but similar legislature in Wisconsin is coming under scrutiny following the killing of 20-year-old Bo Morrison March 3. Global Grind outlines the details leading up to the shooting death like this:

There was an underage drinking party at the home of Tim Hess, the neighbor of [Adam] Kind, which Bo was attending.  It was Mr. Hess’ daughters who were the hosts of the party.  Kind, 35, called police at about 1:00AM, complaining of loud music coming from a car parked in his neighbor’s driveway. He pounded on the window of the car and asked a woman inside to turn down the music. She refused.  The police arrive on the scene at 1:05AM.

For 45 minutes, the police try to get into the garage in the back of the Hess house, where the young people are partying, but to no avail.  They leave the garage area, but park their cars just a few hundred feet away from both the Hess house and the Kind home.

At 1:50AM, the police call Adam Kind and explain that they will cite the party hosts in the morning. They speak with Adam for 4 1/2 minutes. The police say he was appreciative and would give a statement in the morning.  Mr. Kind claims he went back to sleep with his wife.

At 1:55AM, the father of the party’s host come outside and kicks down the door of the garage and all of the young people run. Bo runs and hides in the Adam Kind’s enclosed porch in the back of his house.

At 1:56AM Bo is shot dead. The police cars are still outside the house. Bo is killed while the cops are only a few hundred feet from the house.

At 2:00AM Adam’s wife calls 911 to report the shooting.

Authorities say that Kind, who is white, was justified in shooting the biracial young man under the Castle Doctrine Law enacted late last year. It operates under the principle that man is the king of his castle and therefore can use deadly force to protect himself in the threat of imminent danger in their home. That thinking is very similar to standing your ground with deadly force when you believe you are about to be a victim of a crime. According to county District Attorney Mark Bensen:

“Under a reasonable view of the evidence the homeowner acted reasonably in his use of force based on the facts and circumstances.”

Kind says he shot Morrison once as he, wearing dark clothing, was coming toward him. He also says he immediately told his wife to call the cops. Morrison’s family says the boy was shot while crouching in the corner in the porch because the bullet holes in his clothing were found near the top of his shirt and the exit hole near his buttocks. This makes the idea that he was shot at a downward angle much more probable.

“He executed my son,” Morrison’s mother, Lauri said. “This cannot happen to another kid.”

Since Morrison’s background will likely come into play as this case gains more notoriety, Lauri made it a point to expose the fact that her son had received tickets previously for underage drinking, and said that’s likely why he ran and hid once the party was busted up. His sister, Kayla, confirmed that her brother had gotten in with the wrong crowd for a while, but insisted:

“He was not a criminal. He was not a violent person.”

At this point, Kind has not been charged at all in the case and rallies have begun in Slinger, Wisconsin where the shooting took place. The small city of approximately 3,900 residents is 98% white and 0.2% African American.

What do you think about this case? Was Kind justified in shooting Morrison?

  • Random Black Dude

    Kid was breaking the Law, (underage drinking, trespassing) and if the Pic is any indication, obviously hanging with the wrong crowd. Hardly a bystander like Martin was.

  • safeathome

    I hate it for the kid’s family but the homeowner will have scars for life too. He had to take someone’s life to protect his own family from danger. We know now that this was a stupid kid, but there’s absolutely no way the homeowner could have known that. There was no interview over a cup of coffee. This man had only a short few seconds to decide to act. I think he chose wisely. Remember, the homeowner and his family are still victims here. They probably wont sleep well for quite a few more nights. Don’t be so quick to judge, the stress of that situation is nearly unbearable.

  • Gunluvr

     Yes, Mr. Kind was justified in shooting this individual who deliberately broke into his enclosed porch in the middle of the night(his property). Evidence indicates that he “reasonably” believed a burglar was trying to break into his house. What would all of you who are 2nd guessing him do if u were in the same position?

  • Latoya

    “castle” doctrine; doctrine permitting people who HAVE been assaulted in their homes by a trespasser to stand their ground and use such force as is necessary & reasonable to defend themselves.

    Now no one was assaulted nor were there any force being used against the home owner for him to use SUCH force to defend himself. As much as some others may say running into someone home can cause for incidents like this, yet Bo was on the porch in a fetal position, not in the home. The home owner is clearly at fault!

  • Knitting Crazy

    I wouldn’t say he was “justified,” but I would say that he is not guilty of murder, manslaughter or any other crime. Same thing if it was a white kid. You don’t just suddenly show up at someone’s house, especially after an altercation where the cops have been called and you’re breaking the law. Just because the kid was drinking and inderage doesn’t make him an awful person, but it doesn’t help when people act like he should never have to suffer the consequences of bad decisions. He and his family are now paying the price for those bad decisions (prior underage drinking charges), just like Trayvon did. If Trayvon hadn’t been expelled, if he hadn’t been in trouble, if he didn’t act and look like a thug, he wouldn’t have been visiting his dad and walking around a strange neighborhood. I think Zimmerman made some bad decisions, too, but it’s not like the media have portrayed it. Z didn’t go out patrolling for a black kid to shoot. He had a CCW permit and wore his gun legally. If he was concerned about getting jumped or robbed going shopping, then he had done what he needed to do – get a CCW permit.  He should have stayed in his vehicle, but there is no law against following someone. AFAIK, he was making sure Trayvon knew he was being followed, not trying to ambush him and shoot him. Trayvon, being younger, could have certainly evaded Z and gotten home, but he decided to confront Z. He didn’t know Z had a gun, but he knew that Z was a lot shorter than him, and when Z turned his back, he jumped on him. Z had every right to protect himself at that point. FWIW, my brother was shot and killed by cops and they tried to say it was suicide. I know most of what happened that night, and my brother didn’t deserve to die like that, no more than this kid or Trayvon. However, my brother had done some things that put him on the cops’ radar and they were determined to catch him. In fact, they had beaten him quite badly when he was incarcerated and told him they would kill him the next time they caught him. I know both sides of this story, so don’t think I’m blaming Trayvon for his own death.

  • XOXO-JS

    I don’t have a problem with the pic but it makes me wonder, was this the only pic they could really find? when i saw the pic i thought he was killed for having a white gf, until i read the story, but i’m sure there is a lot of pics of him smiling with his family or by himself. so most of u need to get off ur high horses they could have used another pic.

  • Huggs2012

    I also have mixed emotions about this. I live in Texas and we have a Castle law here. I am a homeowner and a gun owner. I CAN protect my home/family with deadly force. If you live in a Castle law state you should know that you take chances with your life trespassing unto someone’s property. Morrison made a bad decision that got him killed unlike Martin who was in public minding his business. Remind our kids about this to protect them. Explain what trespassing means. When someone tells you to leave, leave. If you are not invited, do not go there.

    Being a single black woman, who does live with a young child (my 4 yr. old nephew), and  who also owns a gun…I can tell you that if ANYONE comes on to my property at night without my permission…my first instinct would be to panic. However, I would never kill anyone. I would definitely shoot to impair, or to disarm if I had to, but never to kill. But, not everyone goes to the gun range to work on their aim and precision, not everyone knows how to keep a steady hand when firing. I don’t know if this man’s goal was to kill thing young boy…but at this point, knowing won’t bring him back.  Now this guy DOES have the right to protect his home with a firearm, but killing someone…that’s something that he’s gonna have to take up with God on his own judgment day. Unfortunately…although I sympathize with the parents and family of this young man…but it was his own poor judgment that lead to his death. If you know that there is already racial tension in your town, the LAST thing you’re gonna do is go and hide on some white man’s porch, and I’m just being real. Sadly, this resulted in death, when it didn’t have to. We have to train our young men for battle, and teach them that although there is more diversity and acceptance nowadays, to always be conscious of the skin we’re in.

    • Khaleel A.

      Are you serious ? This is a 20 year old intoxicated kid running from the police. You honestly believe anyone in that situation would be thinking rationally? “oh I shouldn’t hide here because the white man inside has authority to use deadly force”. Regardless of what the owner of that gun could of handled things differently. He tells his wife to call the cops and still goes OUTSIDE HIS HOUSE to go confront a person crouched in the corner of his porch. If they aren’t trying to open your door or window there was no need to pull a gun… Especially with police in the area. Mr Kind deliberately went out there with intention of killing or seriously harming someone that wasn’t threatening his life or property in any way being crouched on the floor. He was in the wrong and nothing justifies what he did… Even if the law allows it.

  • Counterview2000

    Did the White girl in the photo shoot him?

    if you’re breaking up a undgerage drinking party (hosted by your own daughters) why would you even approach the scene armed in the 1st place. i’m a licensed to carry firearm owner and i dont leave my house to get a newspaper w/o my pistol so i understand to necessity to feel safe, but i still dont think that even i’d have approached that scenario like there was a burglary goin on or sumn and i knew it was a party. so what did he think was goin on? the crowd in the garage decided to kick it before they robbed the place, or there was a random man crouched down on the porch waiting to rob all the underage party goers in the garage? too many people want to jus know what it feels like to kill somebody…

  • Dan Framer

    You are the king of your castle, which is your house, not your yard nor a detached garage. The shooter is giving all gun owners a bad taste in the mouth. The LAW is to protect you in the house. He went out of the boundries of the LAW and should be charged.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Otis-Wilson/1709903594 Otis Wilson

      Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.  Seconds after a party, legal or illegal in its occurence the party was interupted.  There were people still around teens or young adults.  Something seems wrong.  What kind of parent has to brake down his own garage door to stop a sanctioned party?  So much more is needed to be known!  Was this man dating his daughter or sister or something.  More info please.

  • Bloggy Bee

    I think these laws are just the new lynching laws. They allow racists to arbitrarily shoot down young black men with out showing real cause, without having to get charges filed against them and without having to go to court to defend their actions. Same old ish, just a different day. Black people better wake up because those that have the old mindset never change and are always looking for new laws and new ways to justify their racist killings. It’s genocide plain and simple.

    • Rae Louis

      I agree.

  • Queensdiplomat04

    So he knew there was a party…knew kids were running…and shot someone who was in a prone position. Hmmm

  • Rastaman

    This may be a cynical approach but the way to reverse these types of unjust laws is to have more people of color arming ourselves legally.   If it is one thing that alarms white peoplee is the idea that black folks can kill them as indiscrimnately as they kill us.

    Bo wasn’t in his home but, on his property. If I had any suspicion my life was in danger, I doubt I would step outside of my home and go looking for that danger (after already notifying the police. What’s up with everyone trying to take things into their own hands?). With that type of justification I could go and kill all the kids who think it’s cute to run up & down my property, or the man who decided to take a stroll on my property one day saying he thought it was “okay.” Why didn’t I kill them? One (thank God) I don’t have a gun that is readily available to me that might cloud my judgment and have me acting on emotions… and two, I care about people way too much to jump to that conclusion, I value life not material possessions that at the end of the day bring me nothing but false contentment. This world has gotten away from the value of human life. We’ve lost our empathy and have become so selfish & desensitized (myself included).  Uh! It makes me cry. When I was young I did some stupid (yet innocent) things & I’d hate to imagine those things could have resulted in my life being cut short. Yea you can argue Bo made a bad decision but, how many times have you made a bad decision, you think it would be logical for your life to be taken from you because you made those “bad decisions” not directly to someone but to their property?

  • Sophie

    these killings have probably happened countless times… and just like with any other small thing… one event spurs attention to them all and now all these black man crimes are getting light shed on them… i’m sure there was a black man killed somewhere else in the US by a white person… whose covering their story?

  • Quentinbumpous35

    I THINK OUR YOUNG BLACK MALES IS CURSED AT OUR BIRTH CAUSE WHERE NOT WHITE. SO LET’S MOVE ON & WIN THESE CASES THE KILLINGS ARE UNCAUSED FOR.

  • Dreama41

    If the account presented here is true then the neighbor Adam Kind acted with excessive force. I just don’t see what’s up with these trigger happy idiots and that goes for both black and white. Nobody talks anymore. I agree the boy was on his property which was inappropriate but to shot and kill another human being because of trespassing ( because that’s the only crime i see here.) is just senseless. Too many fools are owning guns, there needs to be some changes to the gun legislation in this country.  This is a horrific and senseless killing and i hope that neighbor is riddled with guilt for the rest of his miserable life.

  • Triumpth123

    This is a sad, sad story. That was a boy who never had a chance to live life with a purpose. He was 20, still in life is “Big Party” mode and completely ignorant of the laws of trespassing (At least at that time I’m sure). I went to college with a ton of “Bo’s” ESP the ones in fraternities. It’s a phase of life many guys go thru. I dont believe for one second Bo was doing anything more than hiding from the police on Kind’s porch. His worst crime was being drunk, partying loud and being irresponsible.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Z2DRFXCIDJGMKRMHDIJ7PPBVUM B

      “His worst crime was being drunk, partying loud and being irresponsible. ” Yes!!

      And how many of us could have easily been or have been in the same position?

  • kookla

    I am speechless. This makes me so sad. I don’t know what’s going on in this country, but we have a state of emergency when it comes to our black men. 

  • Wendy Hughes

    I believe this homeowner would have shot this boy, regardless of his race.  He was upset about the party and probably figured the kid was coming for revenge.  Once that boy entered his house (an enclosed porch is considered part of the house), he most likely thought there would be an altercation.  Does that give him the right to kill the boy-no.

    I am sure the man thinks he is right because of the law. However in reality all he had to do was call the police, who it is stated in the article, were only a few feet away. Guns have no place in our society, even though I am a gun owner. When you pick up a gun there are two alternatives, you shoot somebody or they take the gun and shoot you. The man should have gone to the door and summoned the police, not pick up his gun.(SMH and sighing)

      Im starting to think American gun laws are the problem here. People who own them are starting to look for any excuse to use them…..none of this would be an issue if any of these non-law enforcement people didn’t own guns.

      • Big Mike

        BINGO

        However, there are plenty of people who own guns who would have never shot anyone in this situation. Instinct, circumstance, and proper judgement is what’s needed. Someone crouching on your porch is not the same as an intruder looking to do you harm, but the law allows a loophole, so you take advantage. Heartless Coward.

        Same thing with George Zimmerman. His dad was a judge, so I’m sure he knew all about the SYG law. He went into that situation knowing that if anything happened, he could kill someone and then claim salf defense.

        How can these people live with themselves?

      Because this kid was not a thug. Who cares if gang members kill eachother? I don’t but when you are killing the few good kids we have it should be an outrage

      • Chocoliq_Shooz

        A lot of people care if gang members kill each other, just because their in a gang does not mean they should be killed or worse killing each other.  They need to be taught that there is a better way.

    • Martinlove56

      Some people think taking someone life is a joke because da law gives them da right too. Like some cops do runs in front of moving cars so they can shoot. What if it was ur family member? U would be up set. Someone needs to catch him an shoot him. You see where I live he will come up missing. It’s Call street justice.

    • Chocoliq_Shooz

      First of all, any killing of any man is  a shame and disgrace.  So be it that gang killing may be the norm in some areas still don’t make it right.  And for your FYI, not all killings in the ghetto are gang related some are innocent people. And what makes this different is because you had an unarmed man, who was running probably for protection. This was not a case where red n blue are at conflict.

    • JameMont

       Because the arrest the Black men doing the killing, they let white men walk free for it.

    I’ve got mixed emotions on this one because although he’s a kid, you run up onto someone’s property, in this case an enclosed Porch, you kind of put yourself in a bad situation because there are a lot of states that will allow a person to use deadly force. I don’t agree with it, but in this case he should have made better choices, like keep running til you get “home”. Sad, I know how I would feel if it were my child.

    • Jacibrown2003

      I agree with you. This case CAN NOT be compared to the Martin case. This young man should have made better choice, such as not running and hiding on someones property. I’m BLACK and a property owner, and I’m sorry but no stranger better run up on my damn property. I don’t care what color u are. I too have a licensed gun. I don’t know what the hell this person is capable of. No one deserves to die though. As for Trayvon, he didn’t violate any one’ property or space. He didn’t do ANYTHING to deserve being followed and killed.

      • A3rdg3

        I don’t understand property over life.its time for a change.

        • Jessevandell

          Because that person who came up on to your property maybe be very willing to take your life. So  either you try and protect yourself and your property or face the very real chance of getting killed. Thats the difference.

        • STOPtheMADNESS

          i don’t see the issue as a matter of life over property.  i live in killadelphia, pa (yes, the typo was intentional) and my home has been broken into several times.  if someone is on my enclosed porch at 2am, i’m not going to assume that his or her intentions towards me are noble.  especially since i am a single female with a small child in my home and live in a neighborhood where police response is not the most expedient.  the only thing i would do differently is warn the potential intruder that i have a weapon and give them the opportunity to walk away unharmed.  

      • Wormdig

        So I guess the man who shot this kid should not have made a better decision. Was there even a warning given? How is it that when it comes to blacks getting murdered their judgement is on trial. Instead of the fully developed adult who murdered him.

        • Jessevandell

          Cause that is simply not how the law works. You can’t trespass on people’s property expect not to get confronted or possibly assulted..etc. Ive heard stories like this where whites and blacks get killed. So i don’t think its really a race issue  with a law like this.

      but then, if he” just kept running”, he would run the risk of the police shooting him.He was in a no win situation,BUT PLEASE,AFRICAN AMERICAN PARENTS,TEACH OUR NEW GENERATION!They have to be taught that they cannot act and react the same way that everybody else does.It is unfair,but that is how life is for us.OUR children,especially the boys, are often perceived as threats in this society.So, we have to teach them how to keep alive.I am in no way blaming the victim.But, I am just being realistic here.I am schooling my nephew on this subject.You parents that are under 40 should talk to your older relatives, who were  adults during the 60’s,or 90’s,so that they can talk to you and your kids about race relations.

      • safeathome

        Remember, the victims are the homeowner and his family. They are the ones whose lives were threatened by an unknown intruder.

  • Shay

    How do you feel threatened if you’re locked safely inside of your home?  If I see someone suspicious lurking around my house, I call the police.  I’m not pulling out a gun and shooting someone outside.  Now, if they made inside the house, all bets are off.  Also, I’m sure there was a lot of noise when everyone started running from the cops.  He didn’t catch a clue as what was going on?

      Guys,
      Don’t assume!  Your thinking of the obvious.  What I’m talking about is why post a picture where he has a gleeful expression and he’s dead.  Think of the pictures they have of Trayvon, he is not smiling.  Stop jumping down people’s throat without explanation.  Some of your are like guard dogs ready to attack.

        I don’t think anything is wrong with the picture. Whether he was smiling or not doesn’t affect how i or any other reasonable person views this case. In fact the overall feel that i get from this pic is of an all around american teenage boy that loved life and love to have fun. Nothing wrong with that.

        I understand what you’re saying , But I think they post pics like that to show the innocence of the deceased or to show that not all are trouble makers.  Any how that’s how I see it!!!
