A man is stabbed to death after breaking into someone's home.

State police say Edward Crowley forced his way into the home on Keith Whitley Boulevard in Sandy Hook early Sunday morning. The homeowner, Jamie Dillon, then stabbed Crowley when the two got into a fight.

Police did not charge Dillon and say it appears he acted in self defense. The case will be presented to a grand jury.

The aclu might just have to address this issue. After all, we can't have citizens stabbing other wise law-abiding criminals.

A heart-warming Christmas story with a happy ending.

I’ve been to Kentucky and I’m confused. Usually in this situation the homeowner has a firearm at hand and uses it.

Must be a combat vet, use the smallest weapon that will get the job done. Good ammo discipline.

Not every Kentuckian owns a firearm.

We have all kinds of weapons at our disposal in Kentucky including some serious cutlery.

Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea after all...

From what I have read in the past guns have about a 35% fatality rate and knives have it at about 70%.

I'd rather be shot that knifed...any day of the week.

..I use to have a meat cleaver that was hand forged in Lexington Michigan at the turn of the 20th century been in the family for over 100 years...My mother almost amputated several fingers chopping some meat and the cleaver was never used again, I inherited it when my father died in 1988 and none of my kids wanted it...It looked lethal as hell. Finally sold it on ebay just to get it out of my house....you could take a head off with one wack of that thing...They use to make things to last back in those days and farmers did all their own butchering...dad grew up on a farm between Lexington and Port Sanilac..born 1901

I would use a Case knife in PA or a Zippo letter opener in a clutch. Both made in Bradford,Pa.
Otherwise, absent a gun or pointy object I would jam my thumbs into the perps eye sockets.

Heel of hand, not a fist, straight into end of nose, the hand should be properly hardened by weight lifting and grip squeezing. This should be disabling and can be fatal if properly done, at the least it should result in the perp assuming a horizontal position after which the homeowner can practice “The Bristol Stomp” on the perp’s face and gonads.
Of course thumbs in eye sockets or palms banged hard against both ears are also useful, all three applied in rapid succession should take care of any problem.

Sounds like somebody brought fists to a knife fight.

Citizens don’t care if there’s more guns or fewer - they care if there’s more criminals or fewer... and today there’s one fewer...

Too gruesome for me. I’ll just keep my 12 guage pump Mossberg for such occasions.

I believe it.

Those who say don't bring a knife to a gun fight are not speaking from experience. Google "Tueller Drill."

I've seen a video on youtube from Nicaragua where a drunk guy with a knife killed a police officer with an AK-47 and seriously injured two other officers with handguns.

OTOH, knives are messy and very, very personal.

Think there’d be any charges if the guy followed the stabbing by giving the perp a ‘Chelsea Grin’ to go with it?
