You can file this under “If you break into houses, you will eventually find an armed resident.” Police identify victim in Madisonville fatal shooting
Cincinnati was at one time a fairly anti-gun city. The media were outright hostile to gun owners (where were the not?) and the city counsel did a lot to make gun owners unwelcome. The Ohio CCW law changed some of that, though not all. That makes even a relatively neutral story on lethal self-defense just a little bit amazing to me.
Police went to 6615 Roe St. about 1 p.m. Saturday for a possible burglary-in-progress call. They said a resident in the house fired at least one shot, killing the suspected burglar.
The reporter seems to be a bit vague on homicide versus murder, but he is clearly trying to be neutral.
Oh and the neighbors were
shocked surprised to discover that they live in the Real World™ where crime can occur.
“It’s surprising that it took place in this neighborhood, especially in the daytime,” [a neighbor] said.
The fact is that if you can read this, then you don’t live in Mayberry or Pleasantville, and not residing in those mythic locations you live in an area where crime can (and probably does) happen from time to time, even if it doesn’t happen very often. Make your plans accordingly.
