DETROIT (AP) — A suburban Detroit man who killed an unarmed woman on his porch immediately suggested to police it was an accident and that he didn’t know his shotgun was loaded, according to recorded remarks played in court Thursday.

Theodore Wafer, dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, met officers outside his Dearborn Heights home after they responded to his 911 call around 4:30 a.m. on Nov. 2.

“What happened here?” Sgt. Rory McManmon asked, according to the recording played by prosecutors.

“A consistent knocking on the door, and I’m trying to look through the windows and the door,” Wafer said. “It’s banging somewhere else so I open up the door, kind of like who is this? And the gun discharged.

“I didn’t know there was a round in there,” Wafer told McManmon. “I don’t get it. Who’s knocking on your door at 4:30 in the morning? Bang, bang, bang — somebody wanting in.”

    Perhaps God is just giving the haters who kill, such as the one who shot Renisha a long rope upon which they can kill themselves.

    Don’t care whose neighborhood it was in. Who is so trigger happy? Unless there was breaking and entering, call the police. If this was a white person, you would be on the hush…..

    The lying cave n!@@er murdered that girl and he will get away with it. You mayonnaise monkeys are a curse upon humanity. Karma will kick your ass one day. These neanderthal apes should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

  4. The truth about Marissa Alexander that BAW, Essence, and Jet don’t want you to know;
    Yes, her husband had a history of domestic abuse but Ms. Alexander was also abusive and she had a temper. She had a year long restraining order against her husband, during that time she conceived and had a child with him. They got into an argument about texts to an ex of hers and accusations of who the real father of the baby was and there was shoving. Now then she bypassed two exits of the home and went into the garage (3rd exit). She told LE that the garage door was broken and she could not get out but when checked the door worked just fine. She retrieved a handgun from her car and returned back to the inside of the home. She claimed she fired a warning shot into the ceiling, she did not, the path of the bullet was at head level where her husband and 2 children were standing and the path can be traced as it went through the walls.
    Her husband left his home with his children and called the police and she locked herself inside the home…..she never called 911. Her story did not match the evidence. Her husband changed his story from the 911 call to try and protect her but changed back to the original version for the trial. His eldest son also testified at the trial.
    When she was out on bail she violated the terms set by bail (she was to have no contact with her husband) and again went to the home. She then assaulted her husband leaving him with a black eye. He, once again, was the one to call 911 and she never did and left the scene. When the police caught up to her they noticed no injuries on her and place her in handcuffs and into a car. Shortly afterwards she complained of her head hurting and a cut was seen on her head and she was transported to the hospital. It was suggested that she caused her own injury after being put into the police car to frame her husband. Because of the history of domestic violence, the prosecutor wanted to cut her a break and offered her 3 yrs and a lesser charge but Alexander took her chances on SYG and the jury. She lost on the SYG hearing and turned down her plea deal.
    Because she bypassed 2 first exits to leave the home and went out a 3rd door and retrieved a gun and went back to confront her ex, this is why she lost out on SYG. She was out of any danger but went back to continue the confrontation only this time with a gun. That is not standing your ground.
    If anything, Florida’s 10-20-Life law is what needs to be changed. Show a gun and you get 10 yrs, fire a gun and you get 20, kill someone and you get Life. These are firm sentences with no wiggle room or discretion left to the judge.

    • You can curse, very good. Put that on your résumé. Take an intelligent position on Renisha and back it up with facts. Show me she wasn’t a inconsiderate, selfish hood rat.

  5. McBride knowingly broke the law several times that evening. Are we supposed to believe at 4:30 a.m. with a BAC of .22 she then transforms into an innocent, scared teenager seeking help. Ain’t buying it and neither will the jury.

    Jiggy you always got a mouth full of garbage to spew when it involves someone black, but when your kind acts a fool, you act as though you have Super Glue on your lips. If he feared for his life, he should have kept the door closed and called 911. And, how do you know she was “ghetto?” Maybe she was just a teenager who made a stupid mistake that, unfortunately, cost her her life.

    • Her social media pages show her with drugs, guns, and money. The stereotypical ghetto, hood lifestyle. She had several previous DWI’s. She had no regard for her life or others. She set this unfortunate chain of events in motion.

        How do you know so damn much about these people. …you open your stupid mouth and spew a lot of racist nonsense as if you were an expert. If you hate minorities so much stop following our forums and formats. Also if you’re so bad post your photos and address. the real man you claim to be

      • Carl, counter my points with facts of your own to make me reconsider my position. That is what healthy debate consists of. Not racist name calling because my facts don’t conform to what you want the case to be about. Prove me wrong, and I will reconsider.

      • BTW Carl, the “racist nonsense” I have been spewing are directly from the depositions, police reports, and two days of testimony last week, all under oath.

    • Good to see you Kay. She did get drunk at home with a friend, but made a horrendous decision to drive with a BAC of .22. That has to be real close to an alcoholic coma. Actually .22 was 3 hours after the crash. It had to be higher when she fled the scene of the accident.

  7. McBrides actions may have been accepted as normal behavior amongst her peers in the hood. But bringing her ghetto lifestyle and all of it’s baggage to a white persons doorstep at 4:30am had predictable results. She committed a half dozen crimes that evening alone and walked away from help several times. She was not at Wafer’s home seeking assistance. A tradegy, but one she initiated with her irresponsible behavior.
