    BAD: Shots fired during home break in

    It's a war zone in and around Detroit. Harper Woods borders Detroit and has been in decline (like Detroit) for the past 10 yrs. I used to live a half mile from HW and I know a LEO who works there.

    Shots Fired During Harper Woods Break-In - Detroit Local News Story - WDIV Detroit

    Article mentions two rounds recovered. I think they either meant two casings or two bullets.

    If you break into my home while I'm here, I'm going to assume that you intend to do me harm. Any shell casings found at the scene will be mine.

    Story would've ended "...the intruders bled."

    Bled or fled...it makes no difference to me.

    A favorite quote of mine pretty much sums all it up:
    "You may find me one day dead in a ditch somewhere. But by God, you'll find me in a pile of brass."~ Tpr. M. Padgett

    Maybe they were afraid the homeowner was armed, shot and ran, so they didn't get shot themselves. Are people doing home invasions, robbery and burglaries ... getting a bit paranoid of home owners now ???

    Is it just me, or have there been a lot of posts about dirtbags and guns all about the Detroit area lately. What an 'arm pit' of a place to live.
    Detroit is a nice place to be FROM...(spent my first 25 years there...)

    Yeah, those "Detoilet" articles have been posted, mostly, by me. The reason I've been posting them is not to, necessarily, show what a pit Detroit has become, but to exemplify with real-life examples, why it's so important to be vigilant and prepared.

    If you're tired of hearing about these types of (Detroit) cases/stories, just say so, and I'll slow down with posting them.

    No problem here...just the reality of the area.

    There's enough of those stories from right here in the Jax, Fl. area. Ret said it best, Detroit, Jacksonville, their BOTH "two mag towns".

    Methinks private education will not bring us better reporting in the modern 24/7 news climate.

    I'm making up a rumor that Khar is actually working on an actual smart gun that you can sync with your smart phone.

    Enjoy life.
