But one that will probably need some major reconstructive surgery:
Tacoma homeowner shoots would-be burglar in the face
There wasn't a lot of detail in the initial story, although they had a follow-up story today that added a little more information, including this great quote from the Pierce County Prosecutor's Office:
'“Generally speaking,” he said, “we are not going to charge a homeowner for defending himself or herself against a burglar. “Here’s the lesson for potential burglars: When you break into someone’s house, you take the chance you’re going to get shot.”'
Doesn't sound like he's going to go out of his way to find an excuse to go after this guy.
Then there are the caring neighbors:
'“I hope the young man is OK,” neighbor Linda Lauritzen said. “… He didn’t ask for that to happen. Even if you’re protecting yourself, you have to deal with the fact that you shot someone. That would have to have an effect, I would think.”'
That has to make you feel all warm and fuzzy...a neighbor who is more worried about her neighbors mental well-being than the face of the would-be burgler who most people have agreed deserved to get shot...
