When we were kids, we certainly didn't believe in guns. We liked punk rock and peace. We still like thsse things, but we've come to understand the necessity of certain tools.
A 30-year-old man's Sunday morning decision to break into his estranged girlfriend's Metairie apartment and attack her turned out to be deadly. Corey Paul died from two gunshots fired by Carol Beal, 26, a woman Paul had dated for less than a year. Beal apparently fired in an effort to ward off both a home invasion and an attack; therefore, sheriff's investigators deemed the homicide "justifiable," and Beal was not arrested or charged.
We can also say, with relative certainty, that certain decisions set certain things in motion.
