Theif stopped in the act

A few nights ago while i was at work about 2 in the morning a man dressed in black mad an attept to breake into my home and take me for all i own. Litlle did he know my wife and two little girls were home. startled by a noise my wife juped to action. she grabbed the girls locked them in our room grabbed an airsoft gun (jg m4) and she headed down the stiars. she got to the bottom step to find the man struggling to steal the 50inch plasma off the wall.she told the man to stop, he turned towerd her and took one step in her direction, she gave him fair warning. he took another step and yep she shot him. in the face. he was found 2 blocks away bleeding from his mouth from the teeth he lost and he looked like he had chicken pox. I was proud of my wife for defending our home but at the same time worried. things could have went the other direction

Lucky she didn't put an eye out or you'd be looking at a lawsuit. May be yet for the lost teeth.

Even if there is a lawsuit, damn near any jury in the world is gonna be sympathetic to her situation. It might have been a different story if the kids hadn't been there, but a mother home alone defending her home and two children from a strange man in the house with God only know what intent? Find me a jury that convicts in that situation. Not likely.

I'm glad everything turned out OK man.

Even though the thief was breaking and entering the home owner is legally liable for any injuries he sustains.

its a pretty effed up legal system we have.

It worked out this time but if he had a gun it may have been a different story. I'd say get her a real gun, range time to get comfortable with it, instruction to your kids about it, and a good quick opening safe. And Ohio and Kentucky are now Castle Doctrine states, which should hopefully protect you from criminal and civil issues for defending your own house. http://www.guntrustlawyer.com/2009/0...e-and-ena.html

Maybe it was really close to her or something. I would do the same thing if I couldn't reach my dad's 9mm or shotgun.

Lawsuit? If that guy broke into my house he wouldn't be found a block away,..he'd leave in a body bag!My girl knows where my real stuff is and can shoot. If me or my girl had to defend our house with one of my airsoft weapons he would defiantly leave minus a eye and teeth and I wouldn't feel bad about it. Lawsuit my a$$!

i caught some kids trying to break into to my place a week ago friday. if i would have shot them while they were trying to break in, id probably be in trouble, but if they are in the house already, pretty sure your safe from any legal nincompoopery. even more so, since he stepped toward her instead of immediately running. well done

He doesn't have to worry about a law suit bc Ohio is one of the states that has adopted a "Castle Doctrine" as it's called as well as a "Stand your ground" clause to it. What that means is that since he broke into their home and was in the commission of a felony (Burglary), she had the right to defend her self with any force necessary including lethal force so long as he was given warning which by the story he was. Ouch is all I can say on behalf of the burglar and hope he's got medical insurance. lol.

Yams why would you ever want to cause deliberate harm to somone? Probably in the top ten stupidest posts I've seen. Can we take individual posts for the HOI?

Glad everything is fine. I'm lucky that we've never had any break ins.

Glad to hear that no one was seriously hurt. I understand what everyone is talking about "oh this and that" "get her a real gun...", understand that once you pull a real firearm on someone your life changes. It takes 5 to 10 pounds of pressure to pull a trigger, but when you aim at a real person it takes a lot more to pull that trigger. Not to mention the after effects. Your life will never be the same.

Maybe you pull your pistol on a intruder point to shoot and then his friend you didn't see shoot's you. Maybe you pull your pistol and end up shooting your family member. The first thing you should always do is pick up the phone and dial 911. Get your family to a safe room and defend from there. Never should you go looking for the intruder that's what the police are for. You can replace a TV but you can't replace your family.

That is the most moronic post I have read on this site in a long time. I got news for you buddy, your ICS won't do **** when the bad guy pulls out a real gun.

Dog Tags has it right, it could not have been said better

Hate to break this to you, but I think the "theif" made off with your spell checker. You can use the one on AO until you get yours back.

Sorry that happened. Sounds like a scary situation for you and your family Fatairguy.
So, let's say someone was to break into my home late in the night when most people who need to get up for work in the morning are sound asleep. I dial 911, the police are on their way and I lock myself in my bedroom. I block the door with my recliner and dresser, and hope the intruder doesn't make it to me before the authorities arrive. I can't read people's minds, so I don't know the intruder's purpose for entering my home. Maybe they just want to take some of my possessions. They could be a lonely, disturbed individual just wanting to stop in and say hello. Causing harm to me could also be on their agenda, but all I can do is speculate at that moment. They can have whatever material possessions they please, but I'll be damned if I'm going to bend over and take a bullet, stab wound or otherwise from this sap unlawfully entering my home. While I wait locked in my room, the police take care of apprehending the suspect. Best case scenario. I come away with a ransacked home, one less criminal taken off the streets for now and my life. I don't have children or a family, but that makes no difference to me. I should not have to be scared to defend myself in my home, or anywhere, should the need arise. I wouldn't ever want to do intentional harm to anybody, but self-defense is self-defense. The Golden Rule (do unto others as you would have them do unto you) can take temporary leave should someone decide to assault me. On another note, if a friend or relative wanted to come into my house that late they would contact me first. The only person who should be in my home is me, unless they're given my approval to enter my dwelling. This is just what was going through my head when reading the previous posts, and I needed to get it written out rather than keep it in.

I don't know if this applies to the situation but I know I what the fear is like, I live in the hood so i've seen and been through quite abit, i've been shot, stabbed, I've had my head bashed open with a baseball bat, all not fun things.

We all talk about what we'd like to do and what we think we'd do. In reality, when the situation arises its a different ball game. I moved into a bad neighborhood of columbus my freshmen year in college. I always talked about how if presented in a bad situation that'd i'd have no problems defending myself.

On my way up to my apartment doorstep at 1am on a friday night i was greeted with a hand gun pointed at my face followed by a guy who grabbed me from behind and a third who put a shotgun to my chest. I'm not ashamed to say i froze.

Had i reacted to the first guy, the two i didnt see would have most likely ended my life. Me freezing up was the best decision i ever made and will make in my entire life.

Think about that when you're imagining yourself going Gordon Freeman on muggers and intruders. I'm a strong advocator of self defense, however, instead of thinking about what i'd do to a person when the situation presented itself again, i think of making sure i'm aware of my surroundings and do things from a defensive standpoint.
