Prosecutors: Summerlin backyard intruder was killed in self-defense (Nevada)
Las Vegas Sun ^ | 20 apr 2012 | Jackie Valley

A Summerlin resident acted in self-defense and will not be charged in the fatal shooting of an unarmed backyard intruder last month, officials at the Clark County district attorney’s office determined.

The screening unit at the district attorney’s office, which reviews all incoming cases, made the determination April 12, closing the case, Assistant District Attorney Chris Owens said.

The shooting happened the morning of March 20 in the 2100 block of Spurs Court, near Hualapai Way and Sahara Avenue. The resident, who called 911, told Metro Police he fired shots at a backyard intruder, later identified as 19-year-old Demarcus Carter, who the resident believed was trying to break into his home.

"The resident saw the “suspect on his knees trying to open the sliding-glass door to make entry,” Owens said. The two men locked eyes, but the homeowner said the suspect continued trying to enter."

Yet the reporter describes this as a "back yard" shooting, as if to imply the poor innocent perp got plugged just for traipsing through the petunias. You can bet this is how all defensive shooting will be colored by the MSM from now on.

Youths with strange names seem to be unusually accident prone, they keep walking into flying bullets.

That poor boy never had much chance in life with such a pathetic mother. The shooting was inevitable, and I’m glad it happened before he maimed or killed someone innocent.

pawned the ring for $800

$800 for a 'class ring'?

Must have been some class.

Superbowl class?

Do you think all the “De” and “La” prefixes might make one prone to lead poisoning?

Not yet, but they were thinking of Photoshopping him wearing a sailor's cap and holding a lollipop into this mugshot picture:

Ok, I don't get it. I don't think this scumbag was actually a violent criminal. From reading the story, it looks like he was just looking for an empty house to rob. This homeowner did not answer the doorbell, so Carter did a little B&E. Carter had already been casing places and ringing doorbells at a few other houses before settling on one that supposedly had no occupant.

Anyway, this homeowner was well within his rights to do what he did, but it was rather excessive given hindsight. Now, to my point, why the heck would something like this be ok, while George Zimmerman gets charged with 2nd degree murder for killing a guy that was beating his head into the pavement?

I did contact her and said she should complain to whoever wrote the headline. The article was actually well written. She replied and thanked me!
