South Africa:Top cop shoots intruder dead at home ^ | 20 February, 2012 | McKeed Kotlolo

The unidentified lieutenant- colonel is on leave and was sleeping at his Eldoraigne, Centurion, home in the morning when he heard someone at his front door.

The officer, who was with his wheelchair-bond mother at the time, immediately woke up and went to inspect. He found that the intruders had forced the door open and were already inside the house.

Captain Agnes Huma of the Wierdabrug police in Centurion said the officer shot one of them in the upper body, "killing him instantly and wounding another, who managed to escape".

Huma said the getaway car, a white Opel Corsa that was parked outside, immediately sped off during the shooting. No arrests were made but investigations were continuing, she said. -

The funniest comment: "Thanks Lieutenant, although I do not condone gun ownership I will also not hesitate to defend myself if someone threatens my family's life. @Mr Police do not compare this case to Oscar's because at least with this one there was forced entry and he actually came face to face with two strangers already inside his house!" by Mokaubere

South Africa is racked with crime....and surprised this does not happen often

I have noticed with the Oscar Pistorius case...seems a lot of liberals already convicted him because he owns a gun. No doubt Pistorius got spooked by something when he shot his girlfriend....and with RSA high murder and crime rate....I would be spooked, too, if I was there (especially in a well to do area)

Imnot a liberal but the Pistorius story smells like week-old fish.

it’d be one thing if he shot her accidentally, but it seems her head was bashed in with a cricket bat.
