How Should a 60-year-old Woman Defend Herself?

They probably thought it would be easy to rob her. They were wrong. Jeanerette woman shoots, wounds home invaders

Two would-be burglars chose the wrong home to break into Wednesday morning. A possible home invasion was thwarted when the 60-year-old homeowner turned the tables on the interlopers, leaving one in the hospital and the second on the run and possibly wounded.

Without some technological means to equalize a situation like this, the old and infirm will be at the mercy of the young and the violent. (Not that 60 is old.) The few can be overpowered by several assailants. So what do the gun-fearing idiots think should have happened?

One guy is in the hospital on his way to lockup. The other guy is on the run.

You could say they suffered a breakdown of the victim-selection process. Self-defense is a human-right.

Good Guys 2, Bad Guys 0

Armed homeowner puts an end to a crime spree. (“Spree” may be an overstatement.) Baton Rouge robbery suspects shot by Breaux Bridge homeowner

They tried to rob a homeowner. Turns out he was armed when he answered the door.

Investigators learned that one suspect rang a doorbell at the home and waited for the homeowner to answer. When the resident approached the door, a second suspect appeared with a handgun.

The homeowner shot both of them. They were both captured by police and taken to a local hospital.

It turns out that these two miscreants were both wanted in connection to a shooting in Baton Rouge that took place on Monday.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Home Invasion Stopped by Armed Homeowner

They went to the home with the apparent intent of robbing the homeowner. One is dead. One is in custody. Update: Victim ID’d in fatal home invasion shooting

Williams, who was shot multiple times, was dead at the scene. An autopsy has been ordered. The homeowner was shot once in a leg and the third man fled, police said.

That 3rd guy surrendered to police later that day.

If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed resident. Self-defense is a human-right.

You Can Defend Yourself From Crazy People

People acting “erratic” can pose a legitimate threat to your safety. Police have not charged homeowner in fatal shooting on his Slidell property

Something strange was going on in his front yard. So he armed himself, and went to investigate.

he homeowner saw a man, later identified as 22-year-old Seth Flores, shouting and hitting his car. Hicks, who was armed with a pistol, asked Flores what he was doing and Flores responded with irrational statements including that he was “invincible”.

Flores began making his way towards Hicks who began to retreat. As Hicks backed up against his front door, Flores began lunging towards him. Hicks, who feared for his safety and for the safety of his family, shot Flores once, but Flores continued to lunge at Hicks and attempted to grab his weapon. Hicks then fired his gun multiple times, killing Flores on his front porch.

I don’t know if this was a bad guy, or what. But whatever his story, he was a threat to the homeowner and his family.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Elderly woman defends herself from intruder

How should an elderly woman defend herself from a young intruder? Elderly woman defends home, shoots trespasser.

“Through our investigation, it was learned Herpich went to a nearby home without permission committing a disturbance,” Ard said. “The homeowner, an elderly female, made contact with Herpich in her yard, who then removed his pants and shoes and walked towards her.”

Fearing for her life, the elderly female produced a firearm and gave a verbal command to Herpich to stop, the sheriff said, but instead Herpich then fled towards the homeowner’s unlocked residence where another woman was inside.

She meant to fire a warning shot, but hit him in the leg. Center-of-mass people, center-of-mass. Warning shots are illegal in some locales. But not in Louisiana it seems. No charges are being brought against the homeowner.

Self-defense is a human-right.

If I took Something That Didn’t Belong to Me (without permission) It Would Be Theft

And I could be arrested for it. Apparently the cops think that they can do what they want without needing a warrant. Or permission. Baton Rouge shooting footage showing Alton Sterling’s death seized by LA police officers

That should be illegally seized.

[The hard drive containing the video] was taken from his shop by police around 7.30am on Tuesday morning. He had spoken to police for three hours as a witness and given a lengthy statement.

But he told Daily Mail Online that although officers said they had a warrant to take anything relevant to their investigation, they did not show him it – and have not produced one since.

Warrants are public records. If one existed, they could produce it. They can’t produce one because they don’t need to bother with the 4th amendment. And you are disrespecting their Authority for suggesting that the Constitution might be a check on their powers.

Joel Porter, the store keeper’s attorney said: ‘This was an illegal confiscation. The police had no warrant.

‘If there was a warrant issued to enter my client’s premises and take the video, it would have been a matter of record.

‘I have been in touch with the clerk of the court at Baton Rouge and there is no record of the warrant being issued.

‘My client was held in a police car for around three hours and that was illegal too. He was not a suspect.’

Whatever they do now, whatever that video does or does not show, the police in Baton Rouge will forever look like they were trying to cover up a bad shooting. I’m not saying it was, I am saying they are acting like they think it might be.
