A man thought his child’s mother was inside when he banged on the front door and demanded to enter a northeast-side apartment late Thursday.
But it was the wrong address.
When this angry man kicked in the door to that wrong apartment, he paid with his life.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police said a resident was protecting himself, a woman and two small children who live with him when he fired a gun and killed the intruder.
As Wheelgun notes parents have to protect their children
They weren’t just breaking in; they were breaking into a kids’ room. Homeowner kills burglar trying to break into sleeping kids’ room | KOMO
A homeowner shot and killed a burglar Thursday morning who was trying to break into a room where 2 of his young children were sleeping, the King County Sheriff’s Office says.
I think that parents have a duty to protect their kids.
SO the one would-be bad-guy is dead. The other ran.
“The person absolutely has the right to protect themselves and their family on their own property. Again, it has to be reasonable and they have to feel their life or somebody else’s was threatened with serious bodily harm,” said Sgt. Cindi West, King County Sheriff’s Office.
Of course if these two incidents happened in a country disarmed by the likes of the Cult of Gun Control the endings might very well be tragic. Never forget this, self-defense, which is tied directly and inextricably to the right to own and carry firearms, is the ultimate human right. Those who seek to eradicate that right are seeking an evil end.
