    Good: San Antonio Homeowner shoots, kills intruder.

    Homeowner shoots, kills intruderBy Robert Crowe - San Antonio Express-News
    Web Posted: 09/06/2008 11:30 CDT

    Police said an East Side homeowner shot and killed an intruder Saturday morning, moments after the man entered a back window of the house.

    Sgt. Steven Peterson of the San Antonio Police Department said the intruder broke into the home in the 1400 block of South Palmetto about 10:30 a.m. The homeowner, who was not identified, grabbed a rifle and shot at the man, striking him in the upper torso area.

    Peterson said the man ran into the home's backyard, where he collapsed and died.

    Texas law permits homeowners to use deadly force to protect their home and property.

    The homeowner's sister said her brother was sleeping when the suspect broke into his house.

    "I donít know how someone could just break into a house in broad daylight," said Rosie Reyna, the man's sister, who lives across the street from where the shooting took place.

    She said the neighborhood has recently been plagued with property theft -- usually involving drug addicts looking for things to pawn.

    "My brother did what he had to do in self-defense," she said.
    Cheers,

    The result of another chain of bad decisions. The BG got what they asked for. May God have mercy on their soul.
    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...

    I have trouble with this BG getting shot while just breaking into a house, and then trying to run into the backyard where he died.

    Will all that blood effect the looks of the lawn? I hope not!

    Saves a lot of police time: Only one story to listen to.

    As they should, in my opinion.

    God Bless Texas!

    I only wish these idiots would wise up and realize that they are risking their lives breaking into other people's homes! No one wants to take another person's life; but thank God that Texas is smart enough to allow us the right and ability to do so if necessary!

    Cheers! M2

    Got to love it. There are three types of people in the world. Sheep, sheep dogs and wolfs. The wolfs need to learn that sheep dogs bite. Maybe this wolf's death will be a lesson to the others.
