Don't Break Into Homes With Armed Homeowners

If you do break into homes, you will eventually find one with an armed person inside. Homeowner says he shot man in self-defense The results are predictable.
A Barry County homeowner says he took matters into his own hands Monday morning and shot a man he claims was trying to break into his home.
Because Michigan doesn't have a Castle Doctrine, the cops are trying to find something they can charge the homeowner with.

Can't have the little people standing up for themselves, not depending on the government for every little thing. Have to beat that down if they can.

But for me, I still see it as Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0. Self-defense is a human right.

Actually Michigan has long recognized the Castle Doctrine in its common law. It has since gone on to adopt a specific statute which makes it the formal law of the state too.

good to know. The article didn't make it sound that way, but maybe it is just the bias seeping through the reporting.
