    A distinct failure in victim selection.

    Durham County homeowner shoots three break-in suspects
    Durham, N.C. — A Durham County homeowner shot three people trying to break into his house Friday morning, according to the sheriff's office.

    Lt. Stan Harris said calls came in around 10:30 a.m. about a break-in in progress and gunshots fired in a house at 1017 Hamilton Way in the southern part of the county.

    Deputies apprehended one suspect who had been shot at the scene, he said. Two other suspects, who were also wounded, fled the scene but were taken into custody when they showed up at a local hospital.

    The homeowner, who was home alone at the time, was not hurt.

    Good: They were
    "suspects"
    not "victims of the shooting."


    Bad:
    "Deputies said this situation fortunately ended with no one getting killed. They said while each break-in is different, a homeowner’s first priority should be calling 911, and getting law enforcement on the way."

    Good for the home owner. Guess they picked the wrong house to be breaking into this time. Hopefully this will change their mind about their chosen career. Next time they might not be walking away.

    Not necessarily, we don't have a Castle Doctrine in NC and some pretty screwed up laws. Hope it was as stated, trying to enter and not already entered, that is where it gets screwed up.
    We are allowed to prevent them from entering the home but once they are in the story changes. I hope this new Republican majority can/will fix some of this soon.

    Yeah, I have, with concern, noticed this trend also. Seems like 4-6 now commonly making the breach with 1 or 2 in a waiting get-away vehicle.

    ...a recent series of break-ins...
    Hopefully these guys were behind the "series" and it is now over.
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    WHY do the papers keep reporting the addresses of the "defenders" so the gang banger's buddies know where to retaliate.

    Probably their misguided attempt to show no partiality to anyone.
