I agree that the tactics and appropiate use of force was used peoperly in accordance with OCGA 16-3-21. The imminent threat to loss of life or seriously bodily harm was eliminated when the dog was DRT, due to the fact the perp was not physically armed and only the dog posed a viable threat.
I have taught my wife one very important move if we are attacked. It is what I call, "SAVE THE KING", and I point out that I am the King.
You can guess how serious she takes this.
I have to admit this is the first time I have heard of anyone using a pit bull to keep a homeowner at bay. It is amazing how creative criminals can be at times.
