@murph56 I agree with you. If burglars are in your, house shoot them dead. We do not need to waste taxpayers money on scumbags.

RV you better read up on the laws before shot! Once they break in shot them dead, just make sure they are dead or you are going to support them for life! Outside they better be shooting at you before you shot back or you're going to jail! If they were in the house and ran outside again if you shot you're going to jail! The police look at it, if they are outside they are no longer a danger to you unless they are shooting at you!So make sure you shot them dead and make sure their in the house before the police show up and if you can put a weapon in their hand!

kern661, you need to learn what a burglary is. And I have not heard or read any facts that makes this more than a burglary.

Ginny you have the right to protect you & yours outside or inside.

@dr999 do you know the difference? Robbery involves force or fear. Burg is just theft from a locked dwelling without force or fear.

Back in 1957, a woman shot a burglar in her home. The problem was, before the burglar died he was able to run toward the front door and when he fell he landed outside of the front door he had broken down to get in. When the BPD arrived the first officer told the woman to make sure she drug the burglar back into the house so that it did not appear that he had not gotten into the house when she shot or she could be charged for the killing. He then went back to his patrol car to talk with is partner and when he returned, the burglar was nicly placed inside the home. No charges against the homeowner. To this day I share that Officers statement with every friend I have because that Officer help my mother from possibly facing a trial and jail for protecting her home, self and children from a criminal.

DR999, you're right only the D.A. can bring charges against the person for protecting his home. But Estrada can sue for pain and suffering. That's why the homeowner should have practiced gun control and placed the lead more effectively.

Betty401, the suspect's family can't press charges. Only the D.A.'s office can file charges.

Good for this person for protecting his life and property! I sure hope we don't see the family of the suspect trying to press charges! The owner obviously feared for his life and I don't believe what he did was wrong, but yet, The law can seriously be so twisted with protecting these criminals!

He was in mans home! Homeowner had right to shoot him. They break in my house when I'm home they will get shot!
