Salute to the responsible citizen who was ready to defend himself and the rule of law. He did society a service taking out the trash.

Another Darwin Award for a perp who made a fatal mistake in the victim selection process. Don’cha love a story with a happy ending?

Let’s hope he did not have a chance to breed before his final act.

One can hope. But I’d be willing to bet that he’s already a baby-daddy, as the kids say.

I like how they focus on the woman’s feet, to help keep her anonymous, but on the guy’s hands, where his tats make him totally identifiable.

What, pixels too expensive this week?

Yet another reason to avoid ink.

I noticed that. I don’t follow current tat styles but in my day those would have made him one of the bad boys.

I always think of “JAKE” and “ELWO” “OD” when I see finger tats.

Pull a fake gun on a police officer and see what happens. Quickly.

I applaud and salute the homeowner, but he better lawyer up. The thugs’ family will probably bring a civil suit. Happens too often in cases like this.

Yup. Some ‘criminal’s rights lawyer’ will bring charges against him for ‘using excessive force’, because he fired more than once and that’s providing he had a concealed carry permit and the gun was registered. (criminals don’t have to worry about all that nonsense).
If the ‘perp’ was Black, the ‘Trayvon-istas’ will be all over this like syrup on pancakes. :-{

The cops in my concealed carry class told us to shoot until the threat is ended. They also warned us about civil suits. And yeah, it would be Trayvon Part II.

Cops and lawyers, 2 different things. That being said, I’d still rather be judged by 12, than carried by 6. wink wink

Threat, could be defined as lawyers inclusive..IMO….ooops (D)amn, somebody said I was wrong???…next.

Where I live you don’t need a permit to shoot someone on your own property.

timsrighty
Guest

Even if they’re not attacking or threatening you at close range on your property? Just standing or walking on it? I can’t do that even with a CCL. And I wouldn’t unless I felt the person were an immediate threat. I’m not sure I get what you mean. Do you mean in your in house or on your yard??? Where I live the outside property is up to the cops unless I see an immediate threat…inside the house is up to me.

No, silly. If they are stealing your stuff and running away, you can shoot them.

O.K. I know laws vary from state to state. But I couldn’t do that where I live. We have to call 911 in cases like yours. That is unless the cops who taught my CCL class lied to us…which I doubt. Stealing property does not justify shooting here. It has to be an immediate threat, anywhere (home or at the mall parking lot) to one’s physical well being. In other words, stand your ground. By the way, you didn’t mention stuff being stolen in your first comment…I’m not a mind reader.

It varies greatly from state to state. I recently read about a man in Texas who shot a perp breaking into his neighbor’s house. He wasn’t charged.

timsrighty

It’s likely I would be in deep doo doo if I did that here. And I live in a red state.

Here in Iowa, I’d dial 911 if my neighbor was broken into. Our castle doctrine is a little weak here even if someone breaks into your own home.

The cops at the CCL class told us to designate a “safe room” in the house. Go there with your gun and your phone, if the intruder comes in that room…fill ’em full of lead. If threatened before you can get to that room…fill ’em full of lead.

Good point. I just realized I plug the phone in at night and both doors are between it and the bedroom. I’ll have to rectify that.

… just a reason that will deflect an anti-gun DA.

Oddly enough when I lived in the People’s Republik of Illinois, they had stronger castle doctrine laws than my current home in Iowa. Since the homeowner was treated for injuries, it got physical and he was undoubtedly justified. It’s a whole different story when a “Trayvon” comes on your property.

I hope to never be compelled to defend myself with a firearm, but I’m already lawyered up, just in case. I use these guys: http://ccwsafe.com/

You’re very welcome. I figured it might be rather difficult to find a good lawyer from a jail cell.

The perp should have left the stun gun home and taken a pop tart bitten into the shape of a gun, according to current wisdom it is more effectively dangerous.

The song was released by Bob Dylan 10 days after I was born. LOL, it was warning for my parents that their life was about change, bahahahahahaha!
