    An effective home defense handgun: Kentucky: MERGED

    Looks like Jesse got some "Justice".
    A Tracker, maybe?

    http://www.thetimestribune.com/local...184082754.html

    A London man was killed Sunday night when he allegedly tried to break into his in-law’s home carrying a machete.

    Jesse R. Justice, Jr., 46, of London, was found dead by law enforcement officers inside a home on Sinking Creek Road in western Laurel County, according to a Kentucky State Police press release.

    About 11:36 p.m. Sunday, the Laurel County dispatch center received a report of a shooting at the home, and officials activated their Major Crimes Task Force that includes members of the Kentucky State Police, Laurel County Sheriff’s Department and London Police Department.

    Lead investigator Trooper Mark Allen and other detectives involved in the case determined that Justice was shot by Paul Whitworth, father of Justice’s estranged wife Edna Whitworth, who had a domestic violence protective order against her husband.

    Laurel County Coroner Doug Bowling pronounced Justice dead at the scene from a rather unusual weapon.

    “He he died from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest,” Bowling said. “From a pistol that shoots a 410 caliber (shotgun) shell.”

    The shotshell pellets were “000,” sometimes called “triple-ought,” Trosper said.

    “They’re about the size of a fishing sinker,” Trosper said. “There’s only about three of them to a shell.”

    I mentioned the tracker because of the 4410. Fires 410 or .45 Colt.

    Attack others with a machete in Sinking Creek and you'll get your Justice. Ain't it the truth.

    Kudos to the homeowners for surviving the attack. Given that this guy's related, it's gonna be a sticky couple of days ... machete or not.

    justice for Justice - Kentucky homeowner shooting

    http://www.wkyt.com/home/headlines/8278547.html

    Police say a homeowner shot and killed a man who was trying to break into his home.

    It happened in a trailer on Sinking Creek Road late Sunday night, just off west Highway 80.

    Kentucky State Police tell 27 NEWSFIRST 46-year-old Jesse Justice reportedly tried to enter the home, and that he was armed with a Machete.

    When police arrived, they found Justice dead at the scene, shot and killed by the homeowner, Paul Whitworth, the suspects father-in-law.

    Police say that an active Domestic Violence Disorder was in effect at the time against Justice, taken out by his wife, Edna Whitworth, and her parents.

    No charges have been filed in the case.

    The incident remains under investigation by the Laurel County Major Crimes Task Force.

    Changed the title to add a location so that members who search before posting the same story may find this one.

    I also moved this to Armed Citizens success stories since it did not involve concealed carry.

    This is not the first time and likely the last time this type of thing has happened. All too often though the story ends they other way around with the police investigating a multiple murder and are looking for the X to question.

    So, Dad protected Daughter from her crazy ex. Good job, Pop!
    I'm glad they didn't rely on some b.s. piece of paper to keep a psycho ex from bursting in. Too many women DIE that way.

    Love this line from the above quoted WKYT article:
    Police say that an active Domestic Violence Disorder was in effect at the time against Justice, taken out by his wife, Edna Whitworth, and her parents.
    A typo is worth a thousand words.

    “.”

    This thread is filled with so much double entendre that it's scary, but in that vein, I will say that IMO, "justice" is alive and well.

    Restraining orders aren't entirely useless. Backed up by an armed citizen (rather than an unarmed victim), they are pretty convenient for making justifiable shootings easier to process: when the police arrive at your home, and you have a dead body and a copy of a restraining order against that person, it makes for an open-and-shut case that you had every right to shoot that person. Otherwise, arguments can be made against you (by the family or police) that you invited this person into your home and then murdered him.

    That ain't no pea shooter. Nice work dad. Probably saved his daughter life. Definitely saved his.

    don't bring a knife to a 000 buckshot fight
    War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill
