    Great! - Drunk Fool With Bare Fists Shot Dead by Home Owner - Polk County FL

    My Comments: Moral of the story = Never bring a 'stupid drunk' attitude and 'just your fists' to a gun fight, in a home you are not invited into.

    WINTER HAVEN --
    Twice in three years, William Cornwell has had to draw his gun to ward off strangers who broke into his home.

    Early Sunday, the U.S. Navy veteran and security guard at Winter Haven Hospital shot and killed Christopher Brian Deese, 40, of 119 Moss Road, Auburndale. Deese broke into Cornwell's home and challenged him to a fight after a night of heavy drinking, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

    "You wanna fight?" Deese yelled, yanking off his shirt before charging Cornwell, who shot him once in the chest, according to the sheriff's office.

    .....(snip)..

    After fumbling with his Bersa .380-caliber pistol, Cornwell accidentally fired into the floor. His second shot, with Deese running at him, found its mark.

    .....(snip)..

    "William Cornwell had every right to protect himself, his wife and his children from this irrational, out-of-control man who broke into their home. The mistake the suspect made by breaking into that home was a fatal one."

    Judd cited the 2005 Florida Castle Doctrine, which says if a person fears death or great bodily harm to themselves or another, they are allowed to use deadly force while protecting their home or car against someone who has entered illegally.......

    this is a serious misinterpretation of the FLA castle law

    you need not be in fear of losing your life if a BG intrudes into your home when using lethal force to defend yourself.
    the fact that he broke into your residence is enough to justify shooting him.

    It is about consequences. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    Now we have someone who is 'dead' drunk, pun intended. The homeowner is justified to the max on this.

    Breaking into someone's home inebreiated or not could result in you seeing the morgue really soon, obviously this guy wanted just that.

    Christopher Brian Deese, 40, of 119 Moss Road, Auburndale will soon be prime worm food.

    Score one for the good guys.

    But please educate me. What is the idea of removing your shirt before throwing punches? Is it some sign of machismo? Seems like a waste of time.

    People that fight usually remove shirts to prevent it from being pulled over their head during the fight.

    I think it is. Sorta like an old bull pawing the ground before he charges. Actually had a guy pull that on me when I was a boy. He was wearing a t-shirt and when he lifted it over his shoulders I whacked him in the ribs with a 2 x 4 and ran like the wind. I was probably safe and sound in my house before he caught his breath
