The Sunday Offbeat: Man's worst nightmare becomes reality for home invasion suspect(MI)
The Flint Journal ^ | 10 December, 2011 | Khalil AlHajal

Posted on 12/11/2011 7:12:56 AM PST by marktwain

One of any man’s worst nightmares became reality for a home invasion suspect in Flint last month.

The 28-year-old Flint man was trying to force his way into a home after banging on the door and falsely identifying himself as police when he was shot by the homeowner, who told police the suspect was reaching into his pocket for what he thought was a gun.

The bullet went through the suspect’s hip and into his most private of parts.

When officers arrived and asked the injured suspect what happened, he replied “Figure it out yourself,” according to police reports.

“To add insult to injury, we charged him with first-degree home invasion, a 20-year felony,” said Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton. He added the man had a prior home invasion conviction.

It’s hard to imagine the suspect ever breaking and entering again.

“If taking a bullet down there doesn’t stop you, I don’t know what’s going to,” Leyton said.

If actually turned out to be LEOs serving a no knock warrant (wrong address) then the homeowner would be in jail with a dead dog at home.

There’s an important question that the reporter forgot to ask.

Will he still be able to do the peepee dance?

“To add insult to injury, we charged him with first-degree home invasion, a 20-year felony,” said Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton.

So the county prosecuter considers charging someone with a crime an "insult?" By extension, the law is an insult? Dude should be fired.

He charged him with a 20 years felony, I think we can overlook his sarcastic comment.

From the website, re: Khalil AlHajal
“Before coming to Flint in 2010 to cover schools for the Flint Journal, Khalil worked in the Detroit area doing ethnic community reporting. He graduated from the University of Michigan-Dearborn.”

Looking at just his name, it sounds like he’s come right off the boat, yet he has a breezy American-style of reporting. Sounds like he’s assimilated - maybe even second generation.

Eh? He seems to have a pretty clear grasp of The Law as it is currently applied.

Yeah, he misused a figure of speach. No reason I can't add my own sarcastic comment, is there? ;-)

Now there's a cop with a sense of humor, I don't care who you are.

Are you an idiot? Adding insult to injury is a common idiom that in this case means the perps problems were compounded. Nothing more to read into it.
