    West Toledo homeowner shoots would-be burglar - WSMV Channel 4

    "If someone's breaking into your house and you fear for your safety, you have the right to defend yourself and your family. And in this case, that's what we believe Mr. Garret has done," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan with the Toledo Police Department.

    Way to go Sgt. Joe! These are the stories we need all over the news! :)

    Hm. Will likely be charged. Strange, that they haven't done it already.



    I wonder if this is the same guy from a 2008 stabbing incident in high school: Start student being held after stabbing at school - Toledo Blade . DK.

    They often don't charge until the patient is released... once charged and "in custody" he is a ward of the state, and the state is liable for his care... Or, so I've heard, from people who stayed at Holiday Inn Express from time to time.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Doubtful, but anything is possible. Perhaps he'll now get a glimpse of where his life is headed if he keeps on this path ... face-down in a gutter somewhere, courtesy of an aggrieved citizen he's just attempted to harm.
