Man, 71, shoots burglar

Kansas City Star | Man, 71, says he shot burglar Someone breaks in and is shot. Sounds right to me.

The reporter in this story, Robert Cronkleton, thinks just charging the burglar isn't enough.
Prosecutors could also consider charges against the homeowner, Kitchens said, although the decision to use deadly force could be justified if the suspect was committing an aggravated burglary.
A good prosecutor might consider this for a minute, and then conclude it was justified.
