How Should a 68-year-old Defend Himself From a 41-year-old?

If not with a firearm, that is? Suspected burglar shot and killed at southside apartment complex.

Police say their preliminary investigation shows a 41-year-old suspect tried breaking into an upstairs apartment. The 68-year-old man living in the apartment confronted the alleged intruder and then shot and killed him. Police are calling it self-defense.

This is Texas, after all, where self-defense is not just a human-right, it is your legal-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.

    • Heh. That story will come up in about a day, when the press gets to the teary relatives. I haven’t (yet) created a category for “Relatives of Dead Criminals Hate Self-defense,” but I have thought about it. It comes up often enough.
