You could also file this under don’t bring a knife to a gunfight. Valdosta man shot, dies after trying to enter Madison County residence.
So the guy who got shot was sending threatening text messages to a woman at the house. They don’t say, but it sounds like she was staying with friends or family to get away from this asshole, and he objected. 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.
Sheriff’s deputies found him a short distance from the back door, and he was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Self-defense, and defense of family, is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
This is very similar to an incident from September, but this crime took place in May. Third person arrested, charged with murder in Tampa home invasion.
Four people break into a home in Tampa, Florida. Since Floridians are almost as heavily armed as Texans, they meet an armed homeowner, who defends himself, and one of the 4 bad guys is killed. The other 3 scamper.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office arrested Taylor Pritt and Vincent Benitez, both 20, Saturday, charging them with second degree felony murder with a firearm and robbery/home invasion with a firearm. Late Saturday night, deputies in Clay County arrested Ashley Causey, 32, on charges of home invasion and murder resulting from distribution of controlled substances.
The Left is on record as not liking Florida’s law, because it is unfair to hold people accountable for the completely foreseeable consequences of their actions. Or something.
Self-defense is a human-right.
Reporters seem to have a real problem with this distinction. Lawyer: Dunn justified in shooting ruled a homicide.
A guy, who was armed with a hatchet, was shoplifting. When the owner of the store – a city commissioner – objected, there was an altercation.
Dunn, 47, pulled a Glock handgun from his rear waistband and shot Lopez twice at the Vets Army Navy Surplus Store in North Lakeland as Lopez held a hatchet during an argument, Franklin said the investigation will show.
“There was shoplifting, he was told to pay and there was resistance,” Franklin said. “Michael recognizes he didn’t set these things in motion. He acted responsibly and legally.”
Much emphasis on the fact that the ME “ruled the shooting a homicide.” But homicide, doesn’t mean it is a crime. Self-defense can include justifiable homicide.
That is because self-defense is a human-right. (Which reporters and the Left – but I repeat myself – hate.)
Or Something. The Left REALLY hates felony murder, because they don’t think you should be held accountable for the consequences of your actions. Even when those consequences are pretty easy to see. Florida’s felony murder statute has some locals facing murder charges, without ever having pulled a trigger.
They discuss 2 cases: One I don’t care about. (Drug dealer kills someone who tried to steal his drugs.) The other I do care about.
Five people tried to invade a home. One of them was shot and killed by the homeowner. The four others are charged with 2nd degree felony murder under Florida law.
The argument? They are young (17ish). They didn’t think it through. Do you think at 17 they understand the difference between good and evil? Right and wrong? But then the Left doesn’t admit there are such things.
My first posting on this incident can be found at this link.
How should an elderly homeowner defend himself, if not with a firearm? Intruder fatally shot by Gainesville homeowner.
If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed homeowner?
Police were said to have responded to the condo on NW 28th Lane at 6:52 a.m. on Sunday after the elderly homeowner called police to report that he had just shot an intruder into his home. Upon arrival, they found that 52-year-old Gregory Miller was laying inside the living room with apparent gunshot wounds.
The guy who got shot was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Charges are not expected against the homeowner, because Self-defense is a human-right, and in Florida, it is also your legal-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
Gas station customer shoots robber, cops say.
Three guys decided it was a good idea to try and rob a concealed-weapon-permit-holder who had just paid for his gas at a gas station, and was walking back to his car.
Rather than hand it over, he drew his gun and shot at them, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The three would-be bad-guys ran like rabbits. The guy who got shot is in custody. The investigation is on-going.
Self-defense is a human-right.
Whatever they had planned, I don’t think they wanted this outcome. St. Augustine homeowner defending himself shoots, kills intruder; Four suspects charged with murder.
If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed homeowner.
Five people traveled and ended up in the home of an armed homeowner. One of the five was shot and died. The other four are in custody.
An affidavit for arrest warrant says four people have been charged with first degree murder because the shooting death happened during the commission of a felony.
The four are also charged with robbery.
The homeowner has not been charged. The investigation continues.
