Perhaps English novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard’s memorable quote says it best; “Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.”
And indeed this clan, this network, this tribe, this “FAMILY” came together as one to defend themselves against a home invasion, and won!
A man who lived less than a mile away from the house he broke into discovered “the hard way” that a well armed and loving family will defend themselves and protect each other every time.
The incident began when the home invader broke in through the back door of this home in the early hours of the morning.
The father, mother and son were all armed, and fired a warning shot to let the intruder know that he had only two options, retreat back into the night, or face a sure death.
And apparently the intruder chose “death” as he refused to leave and continued advancing into the kitchen, before being shot dead by the entire family.
The officer in the video is citing the Castle Doctrine. Even though the guy was not armed, he was warned and then did not retreat. The neighbors are being very supportive of the family.
Obviously everyone has a right to protect themselves, this family even took the risky option of firing a “warning shot” to alert this intruder that they were armed, imagine if this guy had a weapon and was also armed? I for one would never have given this guy the option, “family first, and family always!”
