The time someone shot a ghost dead

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"As one witness would later state in court, "it was an extreme [sic] dark night" in January 1804, and some people in Hammersmith were feeling uneasy.

"For the past three months, local residents had been reporting multiple sightings of a ghost around the area.

"But on this evening, the case would take a shocking turn, which would lead to a murder trial.

"The implications of the accused's defence wouldn't be resolved in English law until 180 years later."

Well, the end of that tale was a bit disturbing.  Now there is a legal precedent that might be used again.  What's wrong with asking questions about what is going on before intervening?

The problem here is that the original ghost wasn't actually a ghost, but somebody trying to scare somebody else wearing a sheet. I wonder what would have happened had the man shot the man wearing a sheet. Would he still have gotten sentenced killing a man dressed as a ghost while hunting a ghost back at the time when the reports were going on? Would have made an interesting case. LOL
