    Bloody intruder dies after being shot by New Orleans homeowner

    Did anyone else read this? I have run a lot of scenarios through my mind but never even gave thought to the possibility of someone showing up who is already bloody. Just goes to show you have to keep your mind open to all possible scenarios..

    New Orleans police say the homeowner, fearing for his life and for others inside his home, shot an unidentified bloody man who entered his home, in the 1500 block of North Broad Street, and began fighting with residents inside, on Sunday about 2:15 p.m.
    If someone who is already bloody breaks into my house and tries to fight with me I will assume they are not collecting for any charity and will deal with them accordingly.

    The officers lost sight of the man, and when they reached the 1500 block of North Broad, they heard a gunshot, according to Flot. A homeowner, who was inside his house, ran out and told police he had shot a man... who had forced his way into the home.
    Sounds pretty simple. Given that he'd been behaving erratically and police witnessed this just moments before the violent entry and attacks began, it's hard to see how the resident would ever be charged with a thing.

    Don't want to get shot? Then, don't violently enter a home and begin attacking the residents.

    If an already bloody man were to force his way into my home on a Sunday afternoon I would probably assume that one of my neighbors had started the job that I was about to finish.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ What he said ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ It seems pretty simple. In this case, don't do stupid things in someone else's places.

    Well LR, I think this falls under the rule, "Don't do stupid stuff with stupid people in stupid places". BTW LR, I approve of your new avatar. It reminds me of the old adage... when in doubt use High Explosives to rid the world of those pesky problems that mere gunfire won't solve. HUA

    Bloody or not, anyone who breaks into my home will face my full defensive response.

    And this is how it should be.

    In this case, the "bloody" part is mostly irrelevant. Even if the guy had not been bloody, he burst into a stranger's house, began fighting with folks inside (I live about 15 miles outside New Orleans and wondered what the heck was goin' on with this dude when I heard the reoprt on TV news) and was acting crazy from the get-go. I guess I'd ask "who wouldn't have handled it like this?"

    The outcome was pretty much like it should have been by someone breaking into a home with violent tendencies toward the occupants so don't get me wrong here. But the only thing I can think of is the possibility of someone pulling the trigger on someone who may have just needed help. Now I wasn't there so I know that we could what if this thing to death, but I guess what I'm trying to say here is that a bloody, unarmed person may get about 2 extra seconds from me in order to explain himself before dire defensive steps are taken. Unless of course, the fighting started right away.

    If only the homeowner would've put 2 holes in his ceiling with a double barrel shotgun, the bloody man could've retreated in fear without being killed.

    Isn't that supposed to work???
