Defensive gun uses keep coming out of Detroit as for the 7th time since the beginning of this year a would-be-victim turned the tables on an unwelcome intruder. We just keep hearing about Detroit homeowners refusing to become victims, and criminals should start taking note that any door they break down might have an armed homeowner on the other side.
In this case 2 intruders broke into a Detroit home while a 3rd waiting in a get-away vehicle. The homeowner shot at the suspects who broke through a window and the intruders shot back. Apparently criminals are still able to get guns. Who knew?
According to police reports the suspect in the vehicle was shot in the encounter. The two other suspects fled on foot, but the driver of the vehicle drove straight into a neighboring house and died on the scene.
At this time police have not said if the driver died from gunshot wounds or from the crash into the house, but it looks like it was the gunfire that ended this one.
Police are still looking for the two suspects that fled on foot, but if they try this stunt again they will need another driver.
Detroit’s police chief has come out in support of homeowners defending themselves against violent criminals who break into their homes. He admitted that the police just can’t be there on time to stop the crime, but armed citizens can in fact deter and stop crime.
When faces with criticism over his views on the matter he said this at a Detroit Police Commission meeting:
Last week, the issue of vigilantism, as I’ve publicly said and I’ll say it again: I do not promote vigilantism. In fact, I vehemently object, It’s cowardly. Vigilantism is self-appointed law enforcement. They’re not authorized to engage in law enforcement activities and when they do engage in that they should be punished.
However, I do support the Constitution of this United States. I didn’t write the laws or write the Second Amendment but I happen to be an advocate of self defense. Self defense when someone’s faced with imminent, the emphasis on imminent threat to their life or someone else, they have the right to protect one’s self.
