Is New York Law An Open Invitation To Home Invaders?


A would-be burglar was killed when two brothers fought back as he tried to force his way into their home, stabbing him and slugging him over the head with a baseball bat, according to authorities.

“It’s justifiable homicide’’ said a high-ranking police source. “You can defend yourself in your home and on your property.”

NY Post:

There is a reason homeowners can rarely afford to dispense mercy on an overnight invader: Criminal intruders tend to be the dangerous type. What homeowners don’t expect are law enforcers and prosecutors going after them for ­defending themselves and their loved ones.

Queens resident Joel Christopher Paul faced a home-intruder threat in the early hours of July 30, 2017. The 27-year-old was home in Springfield Gardens with his mother, brother and sister when someone ­attempted to break in. The intruder was Shamel Shauvo, 26, who had traveled north from Maryland after being named a suspect in a shooting there 10 days earlier.

Expecting a pizza delivery, Paul’s brother, Michael, 16, went to the door and discovered Shauvo trying to break in. Michael forced Shauvo to the surrounding area, and his mother called for help. Joel, adrenaline likely surging through his veins, answered the call — and brought a bat and knife to the confrontation.

By the time it was all over, Shauvo ­received the ultimate lesson in picking the wrong house. He died at Jamaica Hospital after being clubbed and stabbed. The confrontation had all the indications of a break-in gone wrong for the wanted man, and as one high-ranking police source told The Post, the response was justifiable.  More

Absolutely outrageous, a man has a right to defend his castle and the people he loves, we need to support this man and let the overreaching government know that enough is enough.

I’m sure this will not embolden criminals who now can be more or less assured that if anyone tries to stop their crime, they’ll get off without a charge. This is complete insanity!
