Self defense or if they can charge him with violating the dead man’s rights to being stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!
He should keep his mouth shut until he retains a lawyer experienced with self defense issues.
No idea where this is ...
Indiana, northern part
Break into a mans house, be prepared to be shot down. Justice is served.
WNDU is a local, Notre Dame station.
Indiana I think.
“shot the intruder after he broke into the log cabin style home”
Not sure what the laws are there but if this statement is accurate I’m thinking it’s a no brainer.
Its impossible to determine whether this was self-defense until we know the races of the shooter and the dead man.
I can guarantee that the home OWNER is white..cause I live in the area.
YOU sir are not authorized to use that ND word in my posts...
The right to self defense didn’t come from the government, and the government can’t take it away.
” YOU sir are not authorized to use that ND word in my posts...”
Sir, yes sir!!
(used to live in SB )
That depends on where it took place. Here in GA it would be a no-brainer because our law allows deadly force in defense of our homes and property and we have no duty to retreat from an intruder before using deadly force. I don't know much about Indiana law on this issue, (actually none at all), but after having spent quite a bit of time in rural IN and thereby acquiring a very favorable opinion of Hoosiers in general, I tend to think it's probably not too much different from ours.
Sounds like you quoted the Indiana Code
Self defense is not an issue.
It's assumed when an intruder enters your house.
...the suspect was a 22-year-old white male from Three Oaks. Police are not releasing the suspects name until they notify next of kin.
Police say the suspect was armed with a hatchet and after a fight the suspect was shot by the renter.
Investigators have determined that the suspect entered the home via a rear window that he had shattered. It is believed that he arrived at the home of the victim by moped and the victim did not know the suspect. It is believed that the suspect resides in Three Oaks Township, Michigan and he has yet to be identified pending notification of next of kin.
Three Oaks Township, Michigan, pop. 2,949.
That’s what ya get when you bring a knife to a gun fight!!!!
I found (via Ixquick) a Newscenter 16 in South Bend Indiana...
