“Strike one for the good guys!”

Deputies: Homeowner's Son Kills Intruder in Salinas - Central Coast News KION/KCBA A case of breaking into a home and finding an armed resident.
Hathaway [a neighbor] also told Central Coast News the incident was caught on the families home security camera. Hathaway said, "They were in the living room talking and his son saw someone walk into the garage with a gun in his hand. So his son got up and got a gun himself and walked out to see what was going on."

Sheriff Investigator Terry Kaiser told Central Coast News it's possible the homeowner's son may not be charged with any crime if the shooting was in self defense.
The paper says the dead guy was found with an automatic weapon "slung around his shoulders." I leave to you to decide if that is the case, or if it is more likely that reporters don't know the difference between semiautomatic and full automatic. (Or is a semi-auto an automatic weapon? It is an auto-loader after all.)

That title is a quote from that neighbor. And a great quote it is. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
