Default Wow cops actually did somthing usefull :-)

So I woke up at 4:45am to my front doorbell being ringed like 20-30 times (bedroom is upstairs). This is the point where you're like WTF - grab 45 and chamber it (needless to say - safety off) and head downstairs. There's a slim tall window next to our door (we have blinds so it's mostly closed), take a look and what do I see but two cops.. So I safety the gun and put it out of sight and open the door. They inform me someone was trying to break into our yukon ('03 it's our tow vehicle) and a neighbor was out smoking a cig, saw the guy and called it in. They actually caught him in the act and had him in their cruiser.. Busted. Not sure why the dude picked the Yukon and not the miata - he'd have a much better chance at getting into the miata w/o setting off the alarm (both cars are heavily alarmed w/bright alarm lights but if you were real careful you could cut the top and open it w/o setting it off). Not to mention way more goodies to rip from the miata.. dumbass. The Yukon has a 2x12" sub box but it's covered w/a dark blanket and is factory tinted.. So oddly I finally find myself not being the one screwed by the cops.. Still doesn't make up for all those tickets...

It's been a couple of post talking about thiefs, and mostly guns and I wonder about something. Do you have the right to shoot someone (and kill him) when you get steal, in USA? I know you have the ligitimal defense right (in all states?) But when it's a thief situation, do you have the same right?

I'm someone that is non violent by nature and I don't know what I would do if I caught someone thiefing me ... Anyway, our law is so retarded here that if the thief hurt himself while thiefing you, like he miss a stair march and broke his leg. he can pursuit you... So dumb. I think I would broke his other leg

Only in Texas. Texas' constitution has a line that says you may use deadly force in order to protect property. Not legal anywhere else in the country.

Texas <3

The law in NC doesn't allow to kill over property (Texas is the only one I know of) - it does allow for defense situations and I had no idea what I was going to find at my door. If the car alarm had been going off and I saw them from the bedroom window they'd be painted with my AR-15 and I'd drop a few rounds in the guys vicinity but let them go. I'm sure they'd **** themself on the other end of that. Even in that scenario I'd get a fine for firing within city limits assuming someone knew where it came from. And yeah if they break in your house here they can sue if they make it out hurt - both MP and ex-Opps military friends have told me to shoot to kill. If you wound them even in a life threatening situation they can sue it's ******* rediculous. I'm not out to kill someone but if they come in my house violent they arn't comming back out..

Someone could hurt themself in the act of breaking into your house and sue you.. The sad part is they'd win too.

If you find someone in your house shoot to kill and let the police sort it out. You could always plant a kitchen knife in their hand, or maybe stab yourself with it then plant it.

I look at it this way, if you break into someone elses house to steal their ****, you deserve to get shot down. That story a few months back in Texas was pure gold where the old man gunned down that illegal alien that was part of a huge house breaker ring. Far as I know he hasn't been charged with anything still.

More then likely, if it wasn't just a crackhead looking for valuables to resale, Yukons and SUVs are more desirable overseas and in Mexico. Thats where a majority of stolen luxury and suvs go to.

I love me some Texas. Top-down weather today too. Too bad the Miata isn't running yet.

Luckily Florida was kind enough to enable the "Castle" doctrine, so we don't have to run and hide in a corner like little pussies to put a slug in someones *** for breaking into our homes.

Now if we even feel the tiniest bit threatened, you sure as hell better be wearing kevlar.

I've got some black talons I've been saving for years to put into your ***...

A couple of years ago, two kids were breaking into a car in my home town. The boyfriend of the girl who owned the car looked out and saw the kids in the car, grabbed his gun and shot them both. One of the kids died, the other was hurt badly. He is in jail for a long time now..

Here in Maryland, you are allowed to shoot when someone is "invading" your home...but it requires they be inside the house and not just on the property.

when i first moved to the states i couldnt believe it when someone told me that if a thief breaks into my house and gets hurt they can sue me, hell, i still cant believe it...

so if i use force to hold the intruder down until the cops show up and hurt him in the process of restraining him, should you not be able to justify that in any court?

if so then should you not be able to justify shooting and killing the offender arguing the fact that you felt threatend when he/she failed to cooperate and sit still and got violent and put up a fight? I ******* hate some of the laws...
we need someone like Zoro, to break the law because he is upkeeping peace and harmony for the citizens, just go from town to town killing gang members, rapists, child molestors, lawyers 9just kidding) etc.

About 10 years ago every single citizen of Texas had this exact idea at the same time.
