Neighbors Are Shocked

And self-defense works, even in Eastern Pennsylvania (deep blue as it is.) Person taken to hospital after shooting in New Hanover Township.

Police said this shooting was “domestic related.” Initial reports said an intruder had been shot by a homeowner.

Both can be true at the same time. Reporters seem confused on that score. As for the neighbors…

Neighbors said they’re shocked something like this would happen on their quiet street.

Sorry, but if you can read this you live in The Real World™ where crime can, and often does, happen. You are not protected by your zip-code. Crime doesn’t only happen to “other kinds of people” in other kinds of places.” You should plan accordingly.

Reporters Are Confused About Who Is The Victim

But then I’m beginning to think reporters are confused about a lot of things. Man dead after St. Roch homeowner shoots him during suspected generator theft: NOPD.

His alarm woke him at 2 AM notifying him that someone was breaking into his shed. He armed himself and confronted two individuals in his yard, apparently in the process of stealing a generator.

One of the males confronted by the resident “turned around and faced” the homeowner, police said. The homeowner then fired his gun, hitting one of the men in the chest, police said. The second fled the scene.

The guy who got shot died in a local hospital.

The statement refers to the homeowner as a “victim” and the two men he confronted as “suspects.” However, the department did not immediately respond to questions Friday about whether police consider the fatal shooting to be justified, or whether the person who fled the scene would face charges.

That would be because the investigation is ongoing.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Self-defense Is Legal in Idaho

JusticeAnd prosecutors hate that. Jurors acquit shooter, find he acted in self-defense.

He’d been struck so hard, one of his teeth was knocked out and 2 others were cracked. He was lying on the ground when he shot his attacker. Prosecutors charged him with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

I think it is clear he was in fear of “death or grave bodily injury,” since he was already injured.

Jurors in the two-day trial in Coeur d’Alene’s First District Court deliberated 90 minutes before returning a not guilty verdict.

Self-defense is a human-right, but a lot of prosecutors hate that it is also a legal right.

Even In The People’s Republic of California, Self-defense Works

Don’t expect most of the residents of California to agree. Homeowner Shoots Intruder in East Pasadena: Sheriff’s Officials.

First there was a 911 call about someone trying to break in. Then there was another call from a house 3 doors away.

“The preliminary information that we have is that the the homeowner saw the person come into the house, warned the person that they had a gun,” [Deputy Ed] Luna [of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Information Bureau] said. “The person continued to enter the house, therefore, the homeowner shot the suspect.”

Self-defense is a human-right.

Use the Means of Self-defense You Have Available

“Don’t mess with old people.” I don’t know who said it first, but I’ve read it a couple of times this year alone. VIDEO: 65-year-old Florida woman slugs 300-pound, half-naked attacker with baseball bat.

“He better be glad I didn’t have a gun,” Gainey said. “Because I would have shot him. But this is my gun right here (baseball bat). Because I gone ‘Pi-yow!’”

He had left behind a shirt, a sock, and pants. A K-9 unit had no trouble finding him nearby.

Officers brought Mosely back to Gainey to identify him. She says she could easily identify him by not only his appearance, but the injury to his head.

Self-defense is a human-right. (Does this qualify as Peak Florida? Probably not.)

Armed Homeowner Shoots Guy Fleeing Cops

The would-be, bad-guy wasn’t having the best day. Homeowner shoots man in his St. Paul yard who police say fled from stolen car.

He stole a car, and was being chased by police, but was so reckless that the cops lost sight of him. Then there was a 2 car crash involving the stolen vehicle, and the driver ran, right to an armed homeowner’s house. Where he got shot.

A sign visible in the home’s front window reads, “No Trespassing,” and “Violators will be shot. Survivors will be shot again!”

Heh. And he was shot more than once.

They took the guy who got shot to the hospital. They are questioning the homeowner about what happened, but he is not under arrest.

The guy who got shot was wanted on a prior incident of auto theft.

Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0

How would you respond to an intruder, in an 11-year-old girl’s room who stripped to his underwear? Homeowner shoots home invader who undressed to his underwear, Louisville police say.

The main confrontation with the homeowner happened in the kitchen.

A male homeowner demanded Oliver leave and got into a physical fight with him, injuring his hand, police said.

He yelled to his girlfriend for help. She fetched a gun from the bedroom which he then used to shoot Oliver multiple times.

He was taken to a local hospital, and then to the county lockup.

Self-defense, and defense of family, is a human-right.
