Englewood Castle Doctrine

Daffy_ass_shot_9726 For all the stupidity that populates our stats, it’s rare that we get to add an incident that is the complete opposite.

“WEST ENGLEWOOD — Two men who broke into a West Englewood home got a surprise when they were met by the 53-year-old homeowner armed with a gun, police said.

Police said the two men, ages 19 and 23, forced their way into a home in the 5500 block of South Laflin Street about 2:25 p.m. Wednesday.

Once inside, they were confronted by the homeowner, who fired shots at them…

The 19-year-old man was shot in his buttocks, and the 23-year-old man broke his leg while trying to flee the home, police said.

Criminal charges against the two burglars are pending, Alfaro said. But police said the homeowner is unlikely to face charges.”

Well done sir. While we would have preferred to see some better shot placement, getting shot in the ass works for us.


Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    unfortunately the homeowner now has to sweat it out that he too will be arrested and that the home invaders will go after him in civil court (months and years could go by and still this threat will overhang the homeowner). its time to adopt florida’s stand your ground law and eliminate all criminal and civil liability immediately to people forced to defend their lives by criminals.
