This is one instance where I'd actually side with MeGrendel, Ollie, and many others I usually don't. I suppose the legal equivalent of this would be "voluntary assumption of risk," meaning that if you break into a person's house (in Kentucky no less), you had better assume that if the owner catches you in his house he will probably shoot you. I don't know anything about this would-be thief, and if he's had a hard life I empathize with that to a degree, but that does not excuse breaking into a person's house. He rolled the dice and lost, simple as that.

I've shot a .22 rifle. It's practically a pea-shooter. You can certainly seriously hurt some one, but to actually kill them without shooting them in the head is damn impressive.

@oldIdiot I accept your pathetic admission that you are without argument and remain a tired old anti-American that has been defeated. My only regret would be that I have have been beating up an old man, except that I don't regret beating up an old moron like you.

Mad_Gremlyn, there is no "thesis" in your incoherent ramblings, just slander. And with that, I would like to cordially invite you to go f*** yourself.

Story My aunt's house was broken into the other day, she made the news for something similar. Massive guy with 26 prior arrests broke in, and ended up beating her with a 2x4, but she still took him down.

I feel no sympathy for the robber. No pangs of sadness, no feelings of remorse or loss. Nothing. The criminals made the choice to rob rob an old man's home. Whose to say what they would have done to the man afterwards. I read this story about the robber getting killed, but I can just as easily find a story about robbers beating an old man in his home.

Several weeks ago, a 74 year old man was robbed in my area. Here's a quote from the news story: "But police say the suspect, Nick Marino, continued to beat Malpass for almost two hours. They say he was after the 74-year-old's prescription medication, which he finally found in Malpass' pocket. Then he beat Malpass even more." Luckily the man lived, and he was released from the hospital two weeks after he was robbed.

@OldIdiot, Of course you would not respond to my actual thesis, you haven't a clue as to what makes a thesis. Let me spell it out: you are a coward. Your fantasy is that an intruder comes into your home and you get shoot this person dead without ever doing the hero work involved of determining if your house is on fire and this person is first responder. You want to kill a person because that will make a tiny little boy feel like a big man! But you aren't, and you never will be. How many posts do you have on a website designed to waste time? I visit out of fun, you live here, because you're tired old hermit with nothing to live for, you are indeed more dangerous than I am. Because I have something to live for and you, you do not. Sad little man.

"Send them to Mexico." I wonder if the Mexicans are angry that you turned their country into a war-zone.

This is how you instill fear into criminals. Not with more laws or more cops, but with armed and responsible citizens. There is no better deterrent.

what if, when he heard the noise downstairs, he called the cops and left the house out the front door?

@SmagBoy: Answer: Because a 92 year-old and his wife cannot outrun 3 much younger, probably armed criminals. If they went outside they'd be completely defenceless, better to try to hide in a bathroom or something, BUT much better still is defending one's self!

My mind has officially been blown. It is hard to believe that some people on this thread think the homeowner should have left his own house. Even worse is having sympathy for the burglar. He was violently robbing a old man for the 5th time!

Men nowadays are becoming pussies. If you don't believe me, scroll up to the post "high school football rally". Screw having "sympathy" and "feelings" in a case like this...how about having consequences for a violent crime.

Quik2TheStab-"This person had friends, thoughts, emotions, a birthday, parents, etc... "

And that means exactly what? Now he has friend & parents that will get all emotional on his birthday and share the thought 'What a f@cking idiot he was.'

FoolsPrussia-"You know nothing about the robber's situation either."

We know all we need to know. He was breaking into someone's house in a violent manner and putting the owner in danger. There is NOTHING in his situation that would make that 'alright'. He gave up his right to life right there.

Harlekk-"This guy seems like he was just waiting for an excuse to put a bullet in someone."

Yes, waiting in his very own home....should be charged with stalking. /sarcasm

McDuff73-"have no sympathy for the fact a life was ended"

Why should anyone be sympathetic to this piece of trash?

Anyone who invades your home to burgle or otherwise should have the fear that the homeowner has the right to defend his family, property etc.
The Government in the UK are slowly coming round to this ideal, about bloody time too.
Although I guess its a double edged sword, if the burglar knows the homeowner has the law with him, the bugger will carry a bigger gun.
A discussion in itself really

What if he'd called the cops and walked away and one of the three burglars had killed him (a 90something year old) with a baseball bat? Or he'd slipped and broken his hip? Walking away isn't always that easy at his age. Sitting where you have the advantage is probably a far better bet.

The man was not only within his rights to shoot the intruder, but he was RIGHT to shoot the intruder, as well. If you disagree, well, you're welcome to your opinion. It's the wrong opinion, but you're still welcome to it.

Seriously, though. Walk out his front door and call the cops? While he was being robbed? What kind of pussy thinks that?

This is how he was quoted: "Time is of the [essence]."
This is what he said: "Time is of the. . . something or other . . . [trails off into incoherent mumbling] . . . who are you? Get out of my house!"
