Self-defense Is Legal In Georgia

JusticeCops prefer it when you remain completely dependent on the state for your safety, but admit that self-defense is legal. No Charges For Homeowner Who Shot Guy He Found Inside His House.

So this guy was renovating a house and he stopped by to check on things.

“He noticed that the door was open and a man came out of a room yelling and screaming. The homeowner took out his firearm and fired shots because he felt like his life was in danger,” Atlanta Police Officer Stephanie Brown said.

The guy who got shot looked for help a short distance away, but that homeowner called the cops.

This all took place on Friday, so there is some amazement that the authorities moved so quickly to acknowledge the legality of self-defense.

Prosecutors Hate Self-defense So Much They Will Send Innocent Men to Prison

JusticeEspecially if racism comes into the mix. John McNeil recounts legal battles after self-defense shooting.

He was in his own yard. Both he and his son were threatened with a knife. He fired a warning shot, but the guy with the knife lunged at him. Cops said it was self-defense, but the DA decided to prosecute. Cops testified for the defense. He was convicted. This was in Georgia. All this in a state that had a Stand Your Ground law in place at the time.

The homeowner who defended himself was black. The guy with the knife was white.

John McNeil spent 6 years in prison for defending himself while black in the State of Georgia.

McNeil was sentenced to life in prison in Georgia after he fatally shot a man who had trespassed on his property and threatened both him and his son with a knife in his own backyard in 2005. McNeil was released from a Georgia prison in 2013 after serving more than six years of that life sentence thanks to a grassroots campaign led by his late wife, Anita, who died of cancer 10 days prior to his release, the NAACP and leaders in Wilson. McNeil had cited the Georgia stand-your ground law.

That DA should be prosecuted from being an asshole racist, but nothing will happen to him.

Armed Homeowner Meets Intruder

Are we surprised at what happened next? Homeowner finds intruder in his house, pulls out his gun and shoots.

He comes home and discovers someone in his home.

“He noticed a door was open, a man came out of a room yelling and screaming, the homeowner pulled out his firearm and fired several because he felt like his life was in danger,” said Atlanta Police Officer Stephanie Brown.

He only shot the guy in the leg, which is a gift, from my point of view.

The guy made it about a mile, and pounded on a door asking for water. That homeowner told him to call 911. Someone did, because he’s been arrested. And it isn’t the first time he’s been arrested for “criminal trespass.”

A neighbor had the money quote.

“Nobody ain’t got no business on that property but the homeowner. That’s private property. I’m surprised he didn’t kill him,” said Thompson.

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

How Should a 79-yr-old Defend Herself?

If not with a firearm? Georgia woman, 79, reportedly shoots at suspected home intruder: ‘I got something for you’.

The actions taken by the unidentified woman to ward off the intruder before responders could arrive at her residence on Feb. 12 were captured on her 911 call, ABC News reported Wednesday.

The woman was reportedly heard on the audio of the call, obtained by the outlet from Jackson County Emergency Services officials, confirming that someone “tried to get in the back door.”

“Shoots at.” Not shoots. People need more range time. (I went to the range today! It was sunny and 48 degrees.)

It Is Self-defense Even If It Involves Someone You Know

People often have to defend themselves from someone they know. Deputies: Evans mother was protecting herself, teen son when shooting boyfriend.

Officials with the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office say it all started with an argument between Rogers and his girlfriend’s son. News 12 is told Rogers was using his hands, legs, and teeth as weapons against the 15-year-old boy.

He sounds like a real winner. Anyway, to protect her son, she shot the boyfriend, who died. Deputies are satisfied (for the time being – it’s an ongoing investigation) that this was a justifiable use of force.

Self-defense is a human-right.

A Good Guy With a Gun Stops a Bad Guy With a Gun

You know, that thing that the gun-hating-Left says never happens. Would-be armed robber shot, killed by customer at Family Dollar.

An armed robbery was foiled Tuesday morning when a person police described as a Good Samaritan shot and killed a would-be robber who pointed a gun in the face of a Family Dollar store employee in DeKalb County.

The bad guy was pronounced dead at the scene, and the good guy will not be charged. (Distraught relatives of the bad-guy, saying what a great guy he was, interviewed by media in three, two,…)

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

How Would You Respond to Two Armed, Uninvited Guests?

At least someone was prepared. NEW DETAILS: Woman shoots, kills intruder in northwest Atlanta, police say.

“The preliminary investigation revealed that the deceased male and a second male were both armed when they entered an apartment at that location and attempted to rob the occupants,” Officer Jarius Daugherty said in a statement. “At that time, an occupant of the apartment shot one of the intruders.”

The other guy ran like a rabbit. Police have not identified anyone at this point, and the investigation continues.
