FL:Deputies say neighbor shot after barging into home

Mike and his fiancé woke up at 2 a.m. on Saturday after they heard a loud bang.

"The dogs were barking. I left my bedroom to find an intruder standing in my kitchen; he was ordered to stop. He advanced forward, and that's when I did what I had to do to protect myself and my family," he explained.

Mike said his house was dark and groggy before he saw a silhouette coming for him. After ordering the person to stop, Mike said he fired two gun shots.

"At that point in time you are in fear for your life. You don't know if this guy is armed; you don't know what he is armed with; you don't know what his intentions are; you can't take those chances in the middle of the night," he said.

Deputies said the man in the kitchen was 25-year-old Cody Miller—who lives across the street from Mike.

Funny, my neighbors know not to tromp into my home in the middle of the night, right past my Gadsden Flag.

“Mike said his house was dark and groggy

Yes, I caught that too. I did not write it. It was for a TV report. Sometimes I think they just use software to make the written reports.

BTW, sorry about the double post.

Actually, that’s a great line.

I’ve been pretty groggy myself at times, but I don’t think my house has been.

Just because you have a neighbor, does not mean that the neighbor is a good guy.

Particularly in the era of Section 8.

Just wait ‘till Holder and his fellow cretin/felons start placing more “neighbors” in your neighborhood. Neighbors that they wouldn’t live next too...but think should live next to you.

Well that sucks, these days all the houses on a street look alike. Poor victim may have only been drunk and confused.

LOL! I have felt like the house was groggy, but 'fraid it was just me.

Never seen a groggy house.

I don't think English is required in college like it used to be. Anyway, they are more interested in indoctrination than teaching actual useful subjects.

His house was groggy. Probably smelled like the Stumble Inn, too. So naturally...

Do drunk and confused people often kick their own doors in?

“Just wait ‘till Holder and his fellow cretin/felons start placing more “neighbors” in your neighborhood. Neighbors that they wouldn’t live next too...but think should live next to you.”

That’s why holder and others want to get rid of “Stand Your Ground” it will make it more safe for some of these new neighbors to ply their trade and supplement their “income” from the government.

I doubt often. He has not died so if there is an follow-up to the story that’ll probably be known.

It is to his advantage to claim to have been lost so we probably will not hear him confess to being over there to swipe their Ipad. If he had gotten in an unlocked door I would buy it but kicking down the door makes me doubt that there is an innocent reason.
