Good Guys 3, Bad Guys 0

Hand CuffsYou can also file this under “Another failure of the victim-selection process. Homeowner shot home invasion suspects near Ithaca, state police say.

Two people broke into the house, police said. The homeowner told them to leave but shot them when they refused, police said.

If someone with a gun offers you a chance to walk away from a confrontation, you might consider doing exactly that. They could have been shot in the head or the heart.

The two guys who got shot were taken to a local hospital by their getaway driver. They were taken into custody after they were treated. The getaway driver was also arrested. All three are charged with first-degree burglary.

There is no word about whether the homeowner will face charges, but I doubt it. And the two miscreants who were wounded are being held without bail. The driver was offered bail, but is still in the county lockup.

Self-defense is a human-right, but I wouldn’t count on it in New York state.
