    GOOD: Homeowner Shoots Home Invader - Oak Cliff, TX

    MyFox Dallas | Homeowner Shoots Suspected Burglar in Oak Cliff

    An Oak Cliff homeowner told police that he was awakened around 1:30 Friday morning by the sound of breaking glass.

    The man grabbed a handgun and discovered two men inside his home in the 6100 block of Teague Drive, according to police.

    One of the men was still holding a board that they had used to break the window.

    Police said the homeowner started shooting and hit one of the suspects in the upper chest and jaw. That suspect is in critical condition at Baylor Hospital.

    The other burglar ran from the home and has not been found.

    The case will be referred to a Grand Jury, but investigators said the homeowner appeared to be justified in protecting his life and property.
    Good on the homeowner.

    "...appeared to be justified?

    Two men are standing inside your home and one has a board IN HIS HAND that they just used to break a window? Shoot the suckers until they are no longer threats. It is Texas, so I'm sure this will 'score' well...

    Oh wait...

    This just in...

    Yes, "appeared" to be justified. I don't know why that is hard to understand. Until they do the investigation, they aren't going to say if it is justified or not and even then, the determination will be in the hands of the grand jury.

    Is the shooting justified? It looks that way given the current info is all that is being said. Maybe that is just the current story given by the guy claimed to have done the shooting. However, the story may be a lie. People have been known to fabricate stories to cover one actual crime with a reported crime.
    Considering yourself to be defenseless is the first administrative step to becoming a victim.

    Don't you mean..."may APPEAR to be a lie"?

    I know how it works, it was just a facetious statement...

    It appears to be stupidity on their (the BGs') end, but we'll need to wait until all the facts are in.

    The homeowner, on the other hand, didn't have the luxury of dithering, thus he knew the score: intruders = stupid, and a threat; multiple, armed intruders = immediate deadly threat beyond all shadow of doubt.

    If ya'll know the DFW environs, Oak Cliff is a definite "Shoot First", ask questions later kind of place. Not for the faint of heart, or just hanging around after the sun goes down.

    In Texas we have the castle doctrine,immediate threat doesn't apply you break in my house with the intent to commit a crime which breaking and entering is a crime we have the right to stop you with deadly fiorce,I don't have to wait to see a gun or knife or board,you don't have to be advancing on me,all you have to do is break into my house or try to steal something from my property after dark and it may cost you you're life

    That's exactly what I was thinking when I read the title. Definitely the hood. You can't even hide in your car there, they will light it on fire.
