Three Choir boys break into the house of an off duty police officer.
Said officer is awakened by the sound of breaking glass. The police officer shoots at all three, kills one.
The news this evening refers to the recently deceased as the "alleged home invader". Let's see, breaking and entering and the room temperature choir boy is in dahouse! "Alleged" seems a stretch.
Two of the perps escaped. Whether they had extra orifices is unknown at this point.
If so, they'll turn up at Ben Taub Hospital before too long.
Another case of really poor victim selection.* The house was occupied. This is Texas. The odds of the homeowner having a gun of some type is extremely high. The intended victim happened to be a police officer.
And, there's this little thing called the "Castle Doctrine" which does not require the homeowner to run-hide nor ask what the uninvited "guest's" intentions are prior to shooting him dead.
Kudos to the cop for removing one miscreant from the gene pool.
Eventually the vunables will decided the risk is to great and maybe a starter job at McDonalds isn't so bad after all, or they will be thinned out by "natural" selection. The crime rate in states with armed citizens continues to decline.
* I am surprised that no Democrat strategist has seized upon the obvious need for a federal government funded training program for the vunable home invaders to make better choices in their victims. The whole background check / gun registration / gun confiscation thing just isn't working out.
The program obviously will need funding of at least one billion dollars, but they'll settle for 455 million if Al Sharpton is made director of the program. Oh, and Charlie Rangel too.
