Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed homeowner. Absolutely no one should be surprised at what happens next. KPD: Suspect shot, killed during Northwest Knox home invasion; new details emerge.

A preliminary investigation shows a male was armed with a handgun around 1 a.m. when he began beating on the door of a home in the 2400 block of Lamp Drive, police said.

KPD was notified of the burglary in progress and responded around 1:22 a.m.

Before police arrived, he gained entry to the house through a windoe. One of the homeowner fired his own weapon. Deputies arrived in time to deal with his dead body.

It doesn’t say “22 minutes” in no uncertain terms. But I think from what they do say, you can guess it was “about 20 minutes” for the cops to arrive after the 911 call. That is a long time to wait when someone is trying to break into your home while armed with a handgun. From my point of view, it is a good thing that the homeowner wasn’t dependent on the state for his protection.

But they I thought it was. Charges unlikely in fatal shooting of burglary suspect at Colorado Springs home, police say.

So the guy went to a home, and tried to break in. He was confronted by the homeowner.

The resident confronted Cookson, who was trying to enter the home, and shot him once, police said.

“It appears as though the homeowner was protecting his residence and family members when this incident occurred at the house,” police spokesman Lt. Howard Black told Gazette news partner KKTV at the time.

Colorado has a “Make My Day” law – officially known as the Homeowner Protection Act – means that you can use deadly force if you reasonably believe that a person is intending harm. Which means that – at least in your own home – self-defense is your legal-right.

Self-defense is also a human-right.

Domestic Violence Attack Ends Badly for the Attacker

What he didn’t take into account is that Floridians are almost as heavily armed as Texans.

The homeowner was armed, when the asshole forced his way in through he back door.

The homeowner tried to push Martin back out the door when Martin reportedly raised a large kitchen-style knife in a stabbing motion, the news release said.

The homeowner fired one round from a handgun that struck Martin in the chest, ending the attack, the sheriff said.

Thompson said he drove around the vehicle and that Edwards followed him, eventually passing him in a no passing zone and sideswiping him, causing Thompson to lose control of his vehicle.

When he tried to get out of the vehicle, he was assaulted by the guy who just ran him off the road.

“He was in fear of his life,” [Chief Criminal Deputy Brian] King said.

Cops believe the shooter acted in self-defense, but are investigating to see if he trespassed. The guy who got shot will be charged with assault when he gets out of the hospital.

Self-defense is a human-right.
