A Car Can Be a Weapon

Or in this case, an SUV. Homeowner defends himself with handgun

The guy driving the SUV has been threatening the couple for some time. Messages that include photos of guns and threats.

The 38-year-old husband recounted seeing the same vehicle about 11:30 p.m. Saturday when he returned home. The victim backed his vehicle into the home’s detached garage and began walking up the driveway.

The Chevy Tahoe “began to accelerate towards (the victim),” according to a police affidavit. “Fearing the vehicle would hit him, he pulled a gun from his waistband and fired two rounds at the moving vehicle.”

Realizing his mistake, the would-be bad-guy backed away, but he backed his vehicle into a tree, and took off on foot. Police eventually found him.

“(Bigler) believed (the victims) were the cause of a personal problem,” [state police Lt. Eric] Hermick said. “But he may have been mistaken or delusional.”

The guy in the SUV is facing a bunch of charges “including felony assault.”

Cops don’t expect charges against the homeowner because self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.

Self-defense is Legal in South Dakota

There seems to have been a long-standing problem of domestic abuse. Police: Fatal November shooting in Sioux Falls determined to be self-defense

Police determined Friday that a fatal November shooting in Sioux Falls was in self-defense, according to a news release.

I’m never sure why it seems like a good idea to attack a person you claim to be in love with, but it happens all the time.

This time the wife was able to defend herself, and the DA came around to seeing it that way. Though from November to the middle of February seems a long time to come to that conclusion. I suppose the DA was hoping for a different decision.

“No one was hurt; no shots were fired”

But an armed homeowner was able to hold a bad-guy wanted by police. Homeowner holds shooting suspect at gunpoint in shed until Jefferson County deputies arrive.

The manhunt for a gunman who opened fire on a Jefferson County sheriff’s deputy is over, after a homeowner found the man hiding in a shed Friday morning.

Sheriff Dave Marshak said the homeowner held the suspect at gunpoint in a shed off Highway JJ until deputies arrived, at about 7:15 a.m. Friday.

Self-defense is Legal in North Carolina

The justice system is even moving pretty quickly in North Carolina. DA: Man acted in self-defense in fatal Caldwell County shooting – | WBTV Charlotte

The guy was found to have methamphetamine in his system.

The DA authorized the immediate release of the gun – which was confiscated as evidence – to its owner, the guy who did the shooting.

JusticeBut then I always suspected that it was. Grand jury: shooting at restaurant self-defense; alleged accomplice indicted on robbery charge instead of murder | amarillo.com

Potter County grand jurors no-billed an employee of La Bella Pizza on Olsen on Wednesday, saying he acted in self-defense during a shooting that left one robber dead at the restaurant last month.

The dead-guy’s partner also had his felony murder charge reduced to aggravated robbery.

Self-defense is a human-right. And in Texas, it is your legal right.

Another Breakdown of the Victim-selection Process

They thought it would be a good idea to rob a store. Clerk shoots armed robber, police say

A couple walks into a store. They show a gun and demand cash.

Police said the clerk grabbed a gun and and fired at the two. The man and woman ran out of the store. Police said the man was found suffering from a gunshot wound and was taken to the hospital.

The guy who got shot is in a local hospital in critical condition. I guess his partner abandoned him, because there is no mention of her.
