What would you do if you heard someone break one of your windows early in the morning? When you get up to investigate you see two strangers climbing through the broken window to invade your home.
This just happened to a Detroit man who carried a rifle with him when he investigated the sound of breaking glass. The man fired several shots at the intruders who quickly left. The man called the police who found one of the intruders had collapsed on the front lawn of a neighbor. This suspect, a man, was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.
The other suspect was a female who was suffering from a bullet wound in the leg. Since she is listed in serious condition, I suspect the bullet may have hit her femoral artery which would have caused her to lose a lot of blood.
Sgt. Michael Woody, an officer with the Detroit police department defended the homeowner’s actions, saying:
“We fully support our good Detroiters, good Americans that are legally in possession of weapons defending their homes. We will support our citizens in that matter. This seems to be another one of those incidents.”
The police may be supporting the homeowner, but the Wayne County prosecutor’s office will be reviewing the case. Hopefully, they’ll come to the same conclusion as Sgt. Woody.
I’d like to see more homeowners defending themselves and their property with their guns and if it means that more people committing crimes get killed and injured, then perhaps others my think twice before breaking into someone’s home.
But don’t forget that President Obama and the rest of his liberal followers would prefer that the homeowner would not have had his rifle to defend himself with. They would rather see the intruders enter the home and possibly injure or kill the homeowner and then rob his house. Why is it that our president cares more for the criminals than for law abiding citizens?
