CA Castle Doctrine opposed by NAACP

So three black criminals break into a white family's house at 4am, ransack the place, and beat one of the residents to the point he is permanently crippled. The homeowner shoots two of them dead. The third is charged not only w/ robbery et al but also murder under the "Provocative Act". As is typical, the NAACP cries "racism" and calls for the homeowner to be charged.

Obviously they have no problems w/ the robbers breaking into people's homes and beating them if the criminals are black.

And of course the criminal was a "good boy" according to his mother:

Hughes' mother, San Francisco schoolteacher Judy Hughes, said she believes the group didn't intend to rob the family, just buy marijuana.

Sure they didn't Ma. They also didn't intend to beat the residents into pulp either.

Hm, that's a fucked up law if you ask me.
The other two thugs made the decision to go there, and they were shot (in self defense?), so they only have themselves to blame for that.

And the survivor? Isn't burglary, conspiracy to commit murder, robbery, being an accomplice to assault etc. enough to put him away for a couple of decades? If not, that's another problem with legislation.
