If they find the coach was too comfortable, is this entrapment? Why does this remind me of Goldie Locks?

Wouldn’t it just be trespassing or B&E if the items were not taken out of the house?

I guess they forget to read the manual on burglary, “best practices.”

"Wouldn’t it just be trespassing or B&E if the items were not taken out of the house?"

He could just claim to be an undocumented resident. The owners would then probably have to give him a bedroom and make him dinner.

Items were taken out of the house.

Just not by the man sleeping on the couch. Some partner; leaves his friend asleep on the couch to be caught.

I personally wouldn’t kill for pay, but I’d kill someone for kicking in my back door.

“You’d kill a sleeping person for $500?”

I would be afraid that if I woke him up he would bang his foot on my coffee table and sue me for everything I was worth.

Since homeowners have no more rights to defend themselves, it is becomming better to “shovel and shut up” because anyone wanting to take any action against a criminal these days is far worse in the eys of what we laughingly call “the law” these days than the criminal themselves.....

At the other end of the general default process, simple thefts might be threatening to the lives of some victims. Consider the possibility of elderly or disabled victims starving or freezing to death, after food or heating fuel (e.g., propane) is stolen from them. And burglary is always a threat against lives of residents.

Now how much fun would that be ?

I'd just wait until the perp woke up...have a nice breakfast waiting for him...jail food really sucks... while I have my weapon laser trained on his heart...

Make him call the police and he can explain why they need to come and arrest him..

at night under OT law you could kill a burglar because at night it was hard to see actual intent, if weapons were there, if they were actually there to murder you. during the day you couldn’t kill a burglar unless’they tried actually harming you.

No silly, you wake him up and then you kill him. Geez....

It’s kind of like being in the Hospital, they wake you up to give you a Sleeping Pill.

After police woke up Pinkard, they found the jewelry in his wallet, according to authorities.

That's merely circumstantial evidence, yer Honor! He wuz...uh...taking the jewelry to the cleaners for her. As an anonymous good deed. Yeah. It was research for a book, that's what it was. Research.
