This trial is horrifying. It is so sad to see so many people killed for literally no reason. While I am in no position to delegate blame, it is unfortunate that Crotteau decided to confront a trespasser who had already apologized and was leaving. What was to be gained by that? Some personal satisfaction? But clearly it was Vang, according to my reading of the evidence, that turned tension to tragedy. I can’t read the facts any differently than cold blooded murder on his part. As a male who occasionally feels the irrational anger of the reptilian part of my brain, I can see why this situation was so precarious. If nothing else I hope that we can learn from this that peaceful resolutions never come from violent confrontations.
