    Durant, Oklahoma Man Kills Home Invaders: Is Not Charged

    The Bryan county prosecutor declined to charge a Durant, OK man with the shooting deaths of two home invaders. The shooter is not home free: Responding deputies found two meth labs in his home.

    Only in Oklahoma.

    Andrews, however, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and unlawful use of a police radio. Deputies said two methamphetamine labs were found at the home. Andrews remains in jail on $100,000 bond.

    Self defense is self defense, even if one is doing something illegal in their home.

    This is pretty messed up. I guess I'm happy that the police didn't charge him for murder thereby upholding his right to protect himself. However, 2 meth labs is sort of unacceptable as well. Hope they put him away for a long time.

    Please read sarcasm in the "sort of" comment.

    I used to spend a lot of time in Durant. I called it "Big D". My clients there thought that was hysterical. A great Italian joint there on Main street too - Roma.

    Well this victim got a three-fer...he permanently ended the career of two other dirtbags, and gave a third dirtbag a loooooong vacation (himself).
    Well done!

    It is my opinion that a disportionate percentage of home invasions are drug related. They ain't all about Grannie's Social Security check.

    The "home invaders" were probably after his meth, you can make a pretty penny selling that poison on the streets. But I do agree that self defense is self defense, hopefully he takes his time in prison to contemplate his life choices.

    I've been known to take the drive up to Durant every now and then to waste my money (casinos), they advertise a ton in DFW since it's only about an hour away. It in morbidly amusing how you can tell you have entered Oklahoma purely based on the anti meth billboards and pictures of people with no teeth and chunks of their faces picked off.

    What Is Unlawful Use Of A Police Radio?
    There was a similar case in WA. Two guys broke in & were shot, it was a Marijuana growing operation. Not charged with the shooting. Gun was taken & arrested for drug operation.

    They probably have a statute that covers police scanners used during the commission of illegal activities; which having a meth lab in your home most certainly is.

    I thought it was customary that you lose the right to self defense when committing a felony - I agree with that position.

    So if someone comes into your home and you haven't paid your taxes in 5 years, you have to let them kill you?

    You might as well, those interest rates the IRS tags you with would be the worse fate of the two.
