Because the authorities hate self-defense. Police: Woman shoots ex-boyfriend after break-in, assault in Eastlake – News 5 Cleveland
So her ex-boyfriend breaks into her home and assaults her. (Because he didn’t like the “ex” part of that title, I guess.) She shoots him in the leg. He dies as a result of his injury. Because arterial damage is not something you come back from, unless you are REALLY close to a class 1 trauma center. (That’s a guess on my part, but hey…)
Police said the woman, who has not been identified, and an unidentified witness were taken to the police station for questioning.
Because a cut-and-dried case of legal self-defense REALLY annoys the authorities. Most of them want you to be completely dependent on them – the State – for everything.
From my point of view? Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
