Since they passed this castle doctrine in 2008,I was told by someone in law inforcement that drug dealers try to use this law to get away with murder,My son Robert TRavis Miller was shot in the back by a known gang member in dayton,ohio oct.09 2011,I dont want this to happen to another family,this gang member used the castle doctrine claiming self defense,how was he fearing for his life when my son was unarmed,he is the one that was armed,so I want something put in the castle doctrine saying that if you are committing a felony (dealing drugs ) you can not use the castle doctrine to claim self defense cause if someone sells you fake stuff,you are goin to go confrount that person and want your money back,the guy could of just left as soon as my son got out of the car but he didnt and when my son went to confrount him ,we have no ideal what happened at the window,the witness said the guy drove off with my son hanging out the window,instead of trying to just push my son back out,he got his gun out,it had to of already been loaded,he did not have a permit to carry a gun,he is only 20, fired at my son twice,I believe my son was tryin to get out of the car when he seen that gun and after the second shot,my son fell out the window then another shot was fired ,he was shot in the back and died at the hospital,it was not self defense,my son became the victim after the first shot and the gang member is the one that started the conflict by doing my son wrong in the beginning ,but he gets away with self defense,this is not right,this castle doctrine is to protect people not for dope dealers or gangs or the wrong person to get off with self defense,they will think its ok to kill whoever so we want to put a stop to the wrong people using this law is all we want to son made a mistake but who hasnt,my son was a very caring,loving person that was always there for someone,he was a husband,father,son,brother,uncle,grandson,cousin,a friend of many and we want to make sure this will not happen again,please help us..thank you...the only charges that they are seeking for are trafficing drugs and unlawful use of firearms in a motor vehicle,they are both f4s so he will get only about 1 yr to 3 yrs for each if he goes to jail at all after court ,they act like my son Travis death is nothing and the other charges are more important then his death..thank you



I pray you will find it in your heart to tell people everywhere about these petitions, the one is to get my son Travis justice and th other is to make sure gang members or the wrong person cant use a good law, the castle doctrine was made to protect people not for gang members to use to get by with murder, I dont want another family to through what my family and I are goin through to try to get justice for my son and to get the castle doctrine to change just a little so gangs and the wrong person cant use it by screaming self defense, we need to stop this violence,we need to pull together and show THESE GANGS WE ARE NOT AFRAID,Travis was only 19 when he was shot in the back and killed,he had his whole life ahead of him and no matter what the circumstances was,he should never been killed and there is so many more victims out there that is dead cause of gangs,everyone thinks its never going to happen in their family,WAKE UP..CAUSE I NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD HAPPEN IN MINE..I go though pain,misery and I cry everyday,I will not stop tryin to get justice for my son Travis,I m in grief groups that you cant be in unless you got a murdered child,you dont want to be in these groups, you dont want your family or someone you know to be in these groups,you hear so many sad storys about how their children got murdered ,its so sad ,they are a comfort to me but I wish I could turn back time for all of us to take the pain from these parents too,my heart aches for them PLEASE TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THESE PETITIONS...LETS STOP THE VIOLENCE, LETS STOP THE GANGS AND THE WRONG PERSON FROM USING THE CASTLE DOCTRINE THAT IS TO PROTECT US NOT SO THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH MURDER..
