“A warning to other would-be criminals”

I doubt they will get the memo. Burglary Suspect Caught, Held At Gunpoint After Break-In: Sheriff

They came home to find him driving a truck out from behind their house.

Morgan continued to drive his truck slowly at the homeowner, who yelled for him to stop before firing a shot into the truck’s right rear tire, the report said.

The homeowners were still holding this guy – at gunpoint – when sheriff’s deputies arrived to take him into custody. Charges include safe-cracking and felony stealing of firearms.

The warning? I think the sheriff was surprised that the homeowner didn’t shoot the criminal. Surprised or disappointed.

Self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
