MELBOURNE, Fla. —A man who allegedly broke into a Melbourne home was killed Sunday morning when the homeowner shot him, police said.

The man was shot around 2:13 a.m. at a home in the 1100 block of Mathers Street. He was pronounced dead at Holmes Regional Medical Center. His name was not released.

The man was released from state prison less than a month ago and had a lengthy criminal history, said Sgt. Michael Casey of the Melbourne police.

Police are investigating and have not determined if any charges should be filed, Casey said.

No residents were injured.

The recidivism rate is about 65% within three years.

Well well...what's the point of calling the police if you are going to be investigated for it.

It’s really nice to see so many homeowners “sending a message” to the DNC’s voter base. “Not in my home you don’t!” It’s easy to see why the commie ‘RATS are wanting “gun control” so bad. They’re losing their voter base. Okay, they can still vote after an American dusts them but they can’t donate money to the DemocRATS anymore.

RE: “Police have not determined if any charges should be filed.”

Please pay attention, gun owners.

Especially if the bad guy is a member of a protected racial group.

Give only the legally required information to 911 and the investigators.

You tell 911: “A man has been shot in my home.”

You do NOT say: “I just shot a man in my home.”

To the Police, you provide your ID, your contact information, and, usually, your employer and work number.

After that, every answer should be the same: “I would like to speak to an attorney before answering that question.”

Every request by the Police to search or seize evidence should have the same response: “I’d like you to obtain a warrant first.”

Finally, you say nothing to friends or family about what happened.

If you stay calm, alert, and exercise a high level of self-discipline, your chance of being the next George Zimmerman go down almost to zero.

“However, if it was in say .......???”

As the ghost of ‘St. Martin of the Purple Drank’ can verify, seriously asocial behavior in Central Florida is now ill advised.

My friends in the Melbourne to Mims stretch, and eastward to Ocala, Micanopy, Reddick and Gainsesville, are all well advised regarding Florida laws and also well armed. From teen girls to retired engineers, all are unfilling to become victims and have thus learned to protect themselves.

In Tampa, thugs are as nervious as small livestock in a Muslim country, and Miami’s crimes are much less common in white or Cuban areas.

Only in anti-gun Big Sh*ty areas are thugs still comfortable.

YMMV.

I’m sure the perp thought he was at his house and when his key didn’t work he broke in. He meant no harm and was totally surprised when he was shot in his empty house. He will never get to turn his life around now. Such a sad story. Not.

Have you seen this? Turns out the mass shooters are all left wingers... NOT ONE is a conservative or NRA member - not one...

http://www.infowars.com/media-works-to-keep-mass-shooters-profiles-secret/

In the wake of recent high-profile shootings, the media can almost immediately be seen attempting to link deranged shooters with the political right. As facts come in, the desire to connect shooters to their political ideologies quickly erodes, as the same anti-depressant taking, left-wing, occultist profile emerges.

Melbourne Florida has it’s Police Force and Brevard County also has the Sheriff’s Department.

Sheriff Ivy has repeatedly said that he wishes every homeowner in the county who was qualified had a weapon.

“Response time can not be short enough to help you. You must be prepared to help yourself”, was the latest remark that he made to Conservative Groups having a joint meeting.

He convinced me...I finally bought a weapon and now have to get familiar with it!

In fact, these deranged shooters are ALL of the same bent as the Media Leftists attempting to do the linkage. They are all derranged Leftists. Every one of them. They are all ‘brothers’ of Mosey, Huey and Leftist...the Lamestream Media. And they are Barry voters...all f’n one of ‘em.

You’re kidding right? Perp is dead, but not even a name, let alone a picture.
Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner! The perp IS a Holder’s Person, guaranteed.

Excellent advice. The cops are not there to help you, they want to try and arrest you. Their motto: “to protect and to serve,” is the biggest bull$hit line in the country today. The only thing they want to protect is their own asses, and the only one’s they serve are the politicians who up their pay and benefits! Do not trust any LEO!

If the Media do not specify, then I just automatically assume the perp is Obungler's son.

I did not know either but Mather’s Bridge connects on Merritt Island and would be Indian Harbor wouldn’t it? Satelitte Beach? Both have their own Police Forces.

Guess I need to look at a map.

Greetings back at ya!

I will be in the northern VA area by the end of the week.

Baltimore visits were for the Hockey games vs. Rochester.

Many years ago now, but they sure were competitive then. Guess I visited Baltimore Harbor once too.

Finally found it.

Booker T. Washington Park

It is in 2 parts separated by US1 ( says 19 properties, total?) No access off Harbor City, US1.

North of Aurora and access by turning south off Masterson St. ( both sides )

Small old homes (60’s) listed at $22-60K and some are 600 sq. ft. Found one pictured with chain link front fence and great need of repair. Demolition?)

The other 1/2 of the street seems to be newer and larger 1,600 sq.ft. and one sold over 100K in a listing.

The two parts must be very different.

Never been in that area, have you? Hope this helps.

22 1/2 years out here on the beach for me!

I know there are lots of old cottage type areas in the area north of Old Melbourne. This is way north and some parts of the area near Aurora and before Wickham are very old areas. Roads were still dirt 20 years ago.

This city and area is a wonderful place to live, I guess everywhere has places that are “depressed”! Glad I do not have to live or go there. I will remember to be thankful !
