    Another one? You would think the miscreants in Detroit would become aware of the perils of breaking and entering.

    At some point the perps might get it. Take the chance and get shot. At least the good people there are determined to keep their city and not just give it up to the idiots.

    10 self defense shootings so far this year in Detroit. It may be time to look for another line of work if you are in the home invasion business.

    The police chief continues to impress me - his comments are absolutely spot on!

    They haven't and won't be in a learning curve - ever. The education train left long ago. The best outcome for these criminals was to get caught without getting shot that way the State of Michigan can house and feed them as guests of the state in Jackson or Marquette where they can refine their skills (albeit felony skills). These two weren't that lucky.

    Detroit should create a marketing campaign, public PSA's etc....highlighting all the successful legal armed defense stories and that they encourage responsible citizens to get trained. Instead of crime pays, its Crime gets criminals killed. Several thugs would leave the city and probably go to chicago. ;)

    To bold above.

    No, these knuckleraggers & scumbags that are doing all these crimes really are too stupid to realize that people are starting to shoot back.

    To sentence in red above.

    The problem is, they(the folks in the city) gave up the city to the thugs 35 years or so ago.
    When they took all the clout from the police and turned them into social workers, mostly under Colman Youngs reign, the thugs realized THEY ran the city.
    Whenever the police would arrest someone for a crime, the people would protest and file lawsuits even if the perp was caught redhanded..
    Eventually it all went south.

    Sounds like the folks in Detroit have had it with the low life scum. Two more removed from the pool by this home owner.

    Also, I would like to send my thanks to the Chief of Police for being an outstanding public employee and a fine man!

    Maybe Detroit is going to coin the term "Suicide by Citizen"?
