    Man Shoots would be robber

    Was Detroit man justified in shooting and killing attempted burglar, or should he have taken other action?

    31-year-old Detroit man Tigh Croff faces murder charges after allegedly gunning down a would-be burglar after his home was targeted for the third time in a week.

    Police say Croff chased down two men, but one man -- 53-year-old Herbert Silas -- didn't get away. Reportedly, Silas turned to Croff and asked, "What are you going to do? Shoot me?" and Croff responded with a bullet to his chest.

    "Me and my family apologize to the family (of the victim," Croff's mother, who remained unnamed and off-camera, told Fox 2. "It was tragic."

    Croff's mother said her son was a hard worker and was frustrated with being broken into three times in a week. Neighbors tell the Detroit Free Press the same thing. Not only did Croff work as a security guard, but he also DJ'd at local clubs. He is also a father to twin boys.

    The neighborhood, part of the Jefferson-Chalmers area of Detroit's east side, has been "on the decline," neighbors tell the Freep. Crime and shootings occur regularly, they say.

    "When I moved in, it looked like the Grosse Pointes almost, trees on the street. Everybody was nice," one unnamed resident says.

    Should have waited the extra minute for the guy to enter his house. Can't chase someone down like that, unfortunately. But the second that guy's arm or leg entered my house, he would have been blasted.

    With him chasing them it will be very hard to argue self defense/feared he was in danger.
    Probably best chance is ask for jury trial, plead mitigating circumstance, protecting his property after being broken into 3 times in the prior week.

    He lives in Detroit? He can use the insanity defense.
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.
