Even in Massachusetts, Armed Self-defense Works

Family fights can be the worst. Police: Dighton homeowner shoots man trying to break in

Her estranged brother crashed his car into their cars and then tried to enter the home.

While officers were en route, the caller stayed on the phone with police and told dispatch Whitmore used a rock to break through a glass sliding door and was entering the home, police say.

The caller told police her husband shot Whitmore in the abdomen when he tried entering the home, officials say.

The cops found the brother hiding in a backyard pool and took him to a local hospital. Charges will include felony home invasion and assault with a deadly weapon.

The reporter seems surprised that no charges have been brought against the homeowner, but even in the deep blue of Massachusetts, self-defense is a human-right.
