He Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

He thought breaking into a home was a good idea. Police: Homeowner Fatally Shoots Person Trying to Break In.

Albuquerque police say a person is dead after reportedly being shot by a homeowner as the person was allegedly trying to break into a home.

New Mexico has a fairly good track record on self-defense, which is a human-right.

Self-defense is Legal in South Carolina

But then I thought it was. No charges for shooter who killed man at Christmas party.

Things got out of hand at a holiday party.

When Rowe and his wife attempted to leave, Warren-Camp pulled Rowe out of his car and began assaulting him, police said.

Camp also began attacking Rowe, repeatedly hitting him in the face and body, police said. Rowe attempted to escape but couldn’t. He then pulled out a gun while Warren-Camp was on top of him and shot Warren-Camp in the chest, police said.

The guy with the gun suffered a broken eye-socket and cuts to his face.

Texans Are Still Armed…

Home-invaders still getting shot. The bad-guys haven’t gotten that memo. Sheriff: Burglary suspect dies after being shot by Weslaco homeowner.

He tried to break into a home – in Texas – around 7:30 in the morning.

A person suspected of burglary of a habitation has died after being shot by the homeowner Saturday morning, Hidalgo County Sheriff J.E. “Eddie” Guerra said on social media.

Cops arrived after a 911 call and found the guy with critical injuries, and had him taken to a hospital.

The investigation continues.

We All Need More Time at the Range

Missing is bad. Police Search For Home Burglary Suspect Shot at in San Rafael.

“Shot at.” Not shot.

At about 10:05 a.m., officers responded to the 200 block of San Marino Drive in San Rafael after a homeowner reported someone breaking a window and trying to enter his home, police said.

While officers were en route to the scene, the homeowner reported that he fired shots from his gun towards the back of the house in the area where the suspect was trying to break in, police said. The homeowner did not know if he struck the suspect.

No blood trail, so…

Though the guy ran like a rabbit. And probably needed to change his underwear.

Media Still Can’t Tell the Victims From the Criminals

But then the cops in this case can’t tell the difference, either. Man injured in shooting on Daniel Circle in Jackson.

UPDATE: Male victim was transported with a wound to the arm. Victim was shot by the homeowner after gaining entry into a residence through a window. His injury is not life-threatening. Suspect charges are pending. No other injuries were reported.
— Jackson Police Department

If you break into my home, and I shoot you in self-defense, you are no victim, not even if I kill you. You remain a criminal, and an aggressor in the situation.

And self-defense is a human-right.

Protecting Houses of Worship

Because that’s the world that we live in. ‘We believe this is a ministry’: Ozarks-based company offers active-shooter training for churches.

The guy they interview, Roger Moore, of Peacekeepers Training, said that average response time to an event like this is 7 minutes.

“Most of these incidents are over in four minutes or less,” Moore said. “What that tells me is that if you do not have an armed, intervention-capable person on the scene prepared to intervene, then the likelihood is they are going to carry out the assault until the police arrive.”

The training sounds pretty good, for a 3 day course.

Instructors cover a broad range of topics including keeping the church property safe and secure, how to identify threats, how to deal with the chaotic environment that happens when there is an active shooter, how to communicate with law enforcement and how to treat gunshot wounds.

I wish more organizations would take security seriously.

He Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Hand CuffsHe thought trying to rob someone getting a fast-food breakfast was a good idea. Would-be victim shoots robber at Burger King, Fayetteville police say.

[The police] investigation revealed the man attempted to rob someone when the would-be victim pulled out a gun, firing several shots and hitting the man once.

The whole thing remains under investigation. The guy who got shot is expected to be Okay. And self-defense is a human-right.

And the “Stupid Criminal of Year” Award Goes To…

Not only does the “How dare you live without me!” attitude never work out, this guy got the address wrong. East Tulsa resident shoots man who reportedly kicked in back door.

He wanted to talk to his ex-fiance, who wasn’t at the home in question.

The man peered through vehicle windows at the residence, then went into the backyard and to the backdoor, police said. The homeowner’s son retrieved a gun and “issued several warnings” to the man, but the man kicked open the door and entered the house, according to a news release. The son then fired one shot, striking the man in the abdomen.

He was taken to a local hospital. This guy is lucky he isn’t dead. And cops confirm he was in the wrong place.

Oklahoma has a fairly good history with self-defense, and a version of the “Make My Day” law.

Being Crazy (Or High) Can Be Dangerous to Your Health

Especially when you make yourself a threat. Man dead, wife arrested after bizarre crash and home invasion in Livingston Parish.

For reasons they don’t explain, two people drove through a private yard, and got their vehicle stuck. The guy then broke into the home, but left when confronted by the homeowner.

Kendal then got a shovel handle and broke the bathroom window from outside the house, which prompted the head of the household to shoot Kendal.

The guy who got shot died at a local hospital. His wife fled, but was arrested a short time later.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Texans Are Still Armed

Home Invaders are still getting shot. Homeowner shoots, kills 18-year-old who broke into home.

Not sure why the age of “legal adult” is an issue. If I had to guess, they really wanted to call him a “teenager.” Makes it sound like the eeeevil homeowner shot a 13-year-old kid.

A preliminary investigation revealed that a man forced his way into a home when he was confronted by the homeowner. The homeowner armed himself and fired gunshots towards the suspect. The suspect fled the area.

Cops found him, and took him to a local hospital, but he died.

Self-defense is a human-right, and they take that right seriously in Texas.

Felony Murder in Arizona

The Left will be screeching about how it is unfair, in about 3 seconds. Yuma County home invasion suspect charged with murder.

Three guys invade a home, but they suffered from a breakdown of the victim-selection process, and the homeowner was armed. One bad-guy died and two were hospitalized.

One of the two survivors has been charged with criminal damage, second degree burglary and first degree murder.

Although the home-owner shot the suspect who was killed deputies are charging Gonzalez with the murder because it happened at the time of the burglary.

Because you are responsible for the entirely foreseeable consequences of your actions. And the Left doesn’t like that. Individual responsibility? What next? Self-reliance?

Would There Have Been a Protest?

Without the video record, I’m sure there would have been a protest, maybe violent, about an officer involved shooting. Bodycam video shows officers confronting machete-wielding man in Hollywood.

A quick news search has revealed that the national media is trying their best to ignore this story. Aside from the Washington Times, and a handful of media outlets in California, only the CBS local in Boston has picked up on the story, and they mostly reference the CBS LA story from November, which doesn’t include all of the video.

Click thru and scroll down for the video. It includes a warning for “graphic content,” but it is complete. Several different body cameras, police helicopter camera, and even some video from a passer-by’s cellphone.

The most disturbing aspect of the whole thing, is how many times the guy with machete was shot, and still he was coming at the officer.

So is it self-defense when cop does it? Yes.

Women Need to Learn Self-defense

It’s my view too. OUR VIEW: Women need to know self-defense tactics.

This story is about a local church (Alabama) teaming up a local martial arts school to offer “self-defense” classes. Anything is better than nothing.

What self-defense means is up to the individual to figure out. I like firearms. But in my youth I studied both Karate and Judo. The first taught me to throw a punch, and kick, and some basic blocking. The second taught me to take a fall without hurting myself. Both taught me a little bit about fighting, and I also took some self-defense training (which is more street-fighting and less tournament-oriented.) I have also had pepper spray key-chains. There’s a baseball bat leaning up against my fireplace. But like I said, today I really value firearms for self-defense.

More Self-defense From California

Hand CuffsAnd a failure of the victim-selection process. Homeowner shoots man trying to burglarize his home, Modesto police say.

Modesto police said they received calls around 5 a.m. Thursday that the owner of a motor home on Gordon Avenue was detaining a man after the home’s alarm was triggered.

As officers were headed to the home, the homeowner shot the burglar in the leg.

Cops took the wounded guy to a local hospital, where he is expected to recover. Cops also say the homeowner acted in self-defense.

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

Self-defense Is Legal In Mississippi

But then I thought it was. Chief: No charges expected for shooter in fatal home robbery.

A Mississippi homeowner who fatally shot an armed man during a home invasion isn’t expected to face criminal charges, authorities said.

Because in Mississippi, self-defense is a legal-right, as well as a human-right.

Michigan Is Also Not New Jersey

And self-defense works. Police: Intruder shot and killed by Grand Rapids homeowner.

So this guy decided to break into a home at a little after 2:00 Wednesday morning.

A man went into a home and was confronted by the homeowner. Police say a fight broke out between the two men, which lead to the shooting.

The homeowner shot the intruder in the chest — he died on the scene.

Police are being a bit cagey, but it sounds like an ex-boyfriend/ex-husband breaking into the home were his ex now lives. The “How dare you live without me!” attitude never works out in the long run.

How Should a Woman Respond to an Intruder in Her Home?

I know what I would do. Update: Monkey Junction shooting was self-defense, homeowner won’t be charged.

According to WPD, “The victim arrived home and discovered her front door ajar. Once inside, she heard someone moving from room to room. She retrieved her handgun, confronted the suspect — identified as Michael Jarvis, 37 — and shot him. Jarvis was transported to the hospital and, as of Tuesday morning, is in critical condition. The homeowner will not be charged.“

Self-defense is a human-right.

Yet Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

crime scene tapeAnd Mississippi is not Virginia. Or New Jersey. Pascagoula homeowner says he shot and killed an armed intruder, police say.

A Pascagoula homeowner has reported shooting someone who was armed and committing a burglary, the Pascagoula Police Department says on its Facebook page.

The investigation continues. Self-defense is a human-right.

Teen Home Invaders Are Still Home Invaders

Seems as if some people are upset, as if teens could never get up to anything bad. Resident shoots, teen during attempted home invasion: deputies.

Detectives say the boys got into the gated community, ripped through a screen to get onto a patio, and then two of them slipped through an open door.

A man and his fiancé were inside. The man was armed and opened fire on the intruders.

Other students are sure they would never do anything like that. Only they did. So.

This is a tragedy for the family that had their home invaded and the family of the kid who got shot. I’m assuming that the kid who didn’t get shot will be charged with at least burglary and maybe felony murder, but no charges have been announced.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Even in the People’s Republic of Chicago

crime scene tapeSelf-defense works. 2 dead, 2 wounded in shootout in the East Side neighborhood.

“East Side” is a recognized neighborhood in Chicago. (One of 77 neighborhoods.) It is 13 miles south of the Loop, and borders Indiana.

3 guys were standing on the street when a car pulls up and 2 gunmen jump out and open fire.

The 27-year-old man, who is a valid concealed carry license holder, pulled out his own weapon and returned fire, fatally striking one of the shooters, 17-year-old Michael E. Portis, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. Portis, who lived in South Shore, was dead at the scene.

One of the 3 was also killed. The other 2 were taken to a local hospital, and are expected to be OK. The investigation continues.

Hat tip to Second City Cop – Everyone getting in on the action it seems.
