Dead criminal’s family complains victim’s AR-15 made the fight unfair

Dead criminal’s family complains victim’s AR-15 made the fight unfair

In case you haven’t already heard, a 23-year-old man from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma made headlines this week when he shot and killed three teenage home invaders. The three teens had robbed the garage earlier that day, then returned to try the main house. They awoke Zach Peters, the homeowner’s son, who grabbed his AR-15 and defended himself against 3 armed and masked intruders. Max Cook, 19; Jacob Redfearn, 17; and Jake Woodruff, 16, were shot and killed. Cook’s 21-year-old girlfriend, get-away driver, and “robbery mastermind”

Elizabeth Rodriguez was arrested and charged with three counts of both first degree murder and burglary. Her murder charges come from the felony murder rule which charges anyone involved in a felony with murder if a death occurs during or due to the felonious act.

Now the family of one of the deceased criminals is complaining. They don’t believe it was fair that Peters was allowed to defend himself with an AR-15 when the criminals were only armed with knives and brass knuckles.

Leroy Schumacher, grandfather of Jacob Redfearn, says his grandson made a bad choice but didn’t deserve to die. “What these three boys did was stupid,” said Leroy Schumacher to ABC News. “They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die.”

Schumacher complains that it wasn’t a fair fight and his grandson didn’t have a chance to defend himself… while breaking into another man’s home and attempting to rob him. “Brass knuckles against an AR-15, come on, who was afraid for their life,” he continued.

Zach Peters has not, and will not be charged with a crime for a justified shooting of three armed intruders and Schumacher is furious. “There’s got to be a limit to that law, I mean he shot all three of them; there was no need for that,” said Schumacher.

That's the new whine. "My son was a violent felon but I'm suing because you shot him."

The city of Madison just settled with a felon's mother for 3 million dollars. He was on three drugs at the time of the shooting and was attacking a responding officer when killed.

BTW, where was this "concerned grandfather" when the children were being raised? If anything, the grandfather's sloppy stewardship was the cause of the attack, and frankly I find him culpable.

That's funny, "it was an unfair fight", there wouldn't have been a fight if they weren't breaking in these people's home.

I wonder what Leroy would do if his house was broken into buy three armed thugs? Maybe put on a pot of coffee and bake a cake? Yeah, I'm sure he'd welcome the thugs with open arms and sing kum-bia.

Give me a break, when stupid people do stupid things, expect stupid results.

Bahahahahaha! not a fair fight hahahahahah! Give me a damn break!
Maybe Pawpaw is the "fence" for the whole operation, selling the stolen goods at the local flea market! Just Sayin' could be?

What if the home owners had came home and found there son DEAD from blunt force and knife wounds? Then what?

Nothing better than quick justice!

It has me thinking: more and more of these robberies are involving more than one thug so I'm rethinking my home defense weapons, I may change to my AR or break an AR out of the safe to compliment the pistol that's already out.


Did they ever say how many shots he fired? I was impressed with his kill ratio.

The manufacturer of the AR-15 could use this incident in a new sales campaign.

Thank You Captain Obvious. I picture the thugs all bunched up like chickens in the guys kitchen.

Brings new meaning to "don't bring a knife to a rifle fight."
