New Orleans police say the homeowner, fearing for his life and for others inside his home, shot an unidentified bloody man who entered his home, in the 1500 block of North Broad Street, and began fighting with residents inside, on Sunday about 2:15 p.m.
If someone who is already bloody breaks into my house and tries to fight with me I will assume they are not collecting for any charity and will deal with them accordingly.

From the article said:

The officers lost sight of the man, and when they reached the 1500 block of North Broad, they heard a gunshot, according to Flot. A homeowner, who was inside his house, ran out and told police he had shot a man... who had forced his way into the home.
Sounds pretty simple. Given that he'd been behaving erratically and police witnessed this just moments before the violent entry and attacks began, it's hard to see how the resident would ever be charged with a thing.

Don't want to get shot? Then, don't violently enter a home and begin attacking the residents.

If an already bloody man were to force his way into my home on a Sunday afternoon I would probably assume that one of my neighbors had started the job that I was about to finish.

^^^^^^^^^^^ What he said ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ It seems pretty simple. In this case, don't do stupid things in someone else's places.

Well LR, I think this falls under the rule, "Don't do stupid stuff with stupid people in stupid places". BTW LR, I approve of your new avatar. It reminds me of the old adage... when in doubt use High Explosives to rid the world of those pesky problems that mere gunfire won't solve. HUA

Bloody or not, anyone who breaks into my home will face my full defensive response.

And this is how it should be. :congrats:

Case & Point!!!! It cant get any clearer than that. Besides Government tyranny, this is why the 2nd Amendment exists.

In this case, the "bloody" part is mostly irrelevant. Even if the guy had not been bloody, he burst into a stranger's house, began fighting with folks inside (I live about 15 miles outside New Orleans and wondered what the heck was goin' on with this dude when I heard the reoprt on TV news) and was acting crazy from the get-go. I guess I'd ask "who wouldn't have handled it like this?"

The outcome was pretty much like it should have been by someone breaking into a home with violent tendencies toward the occupants so don't get me wrong here. But the only thing I can think of is the possibility of someone pulling the trigger on someone who may have just needed help. Now I wasn't there so I know that we could what if this thing to death, but I guess what I'm trying to say here is that a bloody, unarmed person may get about 2 extra seconds from me in order to explain himself before dire defensive steps are taken. Unless of course, the fighting started right away.

Seems like a clear cut case that the deceased went tap-dancing on a landmine and it went off.

Bloody, erratic behavior, and threatening gestures at the homeowner will probably get you pumped full of lead most of the time.

Reminds me of the similar case a couple years ago with the school teacher in Upstate NY who went to a party while visiting at a friends house in another town, got hammered and broke into a different house, refused to leave and got shot dead.

Agreed. But violent entry and fighting with residents pretty much puts to rest any claims of honorable intentions on the intruder's part.

Of course, the devil's in the details. As you say, we weren't there and don't know the specifics of what the residents saw, heard and experienced. Assuming it all happened as reported, it's hard to fault the resident for stopping the violence. If you kick in my door and begin taking down my family, I don't care if you're dressed like a Girl Scout or the Avon lady; I'm going to stop you cold, if I'm able.

...like the sign says, "survivors will be shot again"! :rolleyes:
I am a cheapskate, I'll make sure it does not require a second or third shot. Hey, ammo is hard to come by and is very expensive to replace. :embarassed:
