There just happened to be two of these that I found today. The first is how our typical court system works for the criminal.
A man who was shot and killed after he allegedly broke into a home Monday night had been in
earlier that same day where he was facing theft and burglary charges.
Nothing like walking out of court that day on a felony charge and getting right back to your job that evening. Thankfully, since the homeowner was prepared, we don't have to wonder what assault or murder charges might have been added to the docket.
In the next story, I just had to chuckle at the picture:
"My adrenaline was just flowing at 100 mph," she said. "I just said, 'Stop right
there (expletive), or you're going to be dead where you stand."
Now, while I really don't condone inserting yourself into a situation where you aren't directly threatened, I can see how they are frustrated with crime in their area. As a bonus, there are two stories discussed in the second article.
Enjoy the reading!
