    Another BG Shot In The Backside

    Sheriff: Intruder shot in backside by owner of truck stop near Tea | argusleader.com | Argus Leader

    A Sioux Falls man accused of trying to burglarize Larry’s I-29 Truck Plaza near Tea was shot in the buttocks by the business owner early Wednesday morning.

    According to Lincoln County Sheriff Dennis Johnson, the plaza’s owner was working in a back office at about 1:15 a.m. when he heard a noise coming from somewhere in the building.

    Carrying a loaded handgun, the owner went to investigate and when he opened the door to his office, another door beside it opened and “he finds himself face to face with the intruder wearing a mask and holding a prybar,” Johnson said.

    The owner fired one round at the intruder, later identified by authorities as Austin L. Yesda, 22, of Sioux Falls. The bullet hit Yesda in his backside and he fled the building.

    Officers from the South Dakota Highway Patrol, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, Tea Police Department and the South Dakota Department of Investigation responded and caught up with Yesda less than a mile from the scene near on Sundowner Avenue at about 2 a.m.

    Yesda was taken to Avera McKennan Hospital with non life-threatening injuries, Johnson said.

    “I can’t really comment specifically on this case, because it’s still ongoing, but generally speaking, people do have the right to defend themselves and their property with an amount of force that is reasonable under the circumstances that exist at the time,” Johnson said.

    Johnson didn’t give the owner’s name, but according to Lincoln County property records, the land is owned by LCI Inc., a South Dakota corporation.

    It seems we're missing a few facts. Like the BG was no longer a threat...

    He could have been turned sideways. You could still shoot the booty.

    1 in the backside can happen as the BG turns to run as you are pulling the trigger, a second one in the back would be hard to explain.

    It could have also been one of those magic bullets used to assassinate Kennedy.

    Cool

    Let's see, you open a door to your office and immediately see a BG with a prybar/crowbar. You instinctively shoot because the prybar could crack your skull. At the same time the BG turns rather than swinging at the storeowner.
    Totally plausable and in my mind I see no ill intentions other than self defense.

    Or did the BG have a good reason to be there? Don't think so.

    Masaad Ayoob talks about how frequently bad guys turn in the space of time it takes a person to go from the commitment to pull the trigger, and the actual bullet impact. He teaches firearms handling and tactics and is a well-respected professional witness for defensive shooting court cases. If you have had one of his classes he even testifies free.
    But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...

    action and re-action times, the fog war

    besides the bad guy was caught red handed, if the bad guy had not been where he was he would have not got shot

    center mass of chest or pumpkin would have been better shot placement requiring more time

    sounds like a re-action shot as in Point Shooting.

    I'm not familiar with the gun laws in South Dakota, but in MS he would have been lucky not to have been shot in the back of the head.

    So what if he was shot in the back? It's 1:15am and he's in your business with a crowbar!! Betcha lots of money he wasn't collecting for the Salvation Army!! He's a stinkin' criminal!! Quit nitpickin' and do the world a favor!! If a jury convicts you, you need some new laws!

    Here in Texas if he's commiting a crime on your property,It doesn't matter where the bullet holes are.During daylight hours if somebody steals from your "yard" you cannot use deadly force to stop the theft ,but during hours of darkness you try to steal a lawnchair,or anything else and you can legally be shot to prevent the theft.If they enter you're residence at anytime of day or night they are literally signing their death warrant.Being a burglar in Texas is more dangerous than fishing for alaskan king crab

    thats right, duke and thats the way we want it here.
    some of these nitpicking laws we have in the usa are ridiculous.
    about 200 years ago if someone was caught breaking into your home or business they would have been quickly killed or worse, captured and tortured to death.
