However you think about that issue, it happens on every continent and every country somewhere. One thing to note: The perp was only shot in the leg. He wasn't killed, not that that has anything to do with it, the kid just shot blindly and it was blind luck it didn't go through the guy's heart. I think he said the bullet went through the ice chest so that reduced any damage it would have done to a human. Again, blind luck.
But why is there a debate about this, no the perp was not in the house but yes, he was still on their property AND carrying property not his.
So suppose on that property the perp attempted to take something valuable, not in the house. I don't know, an air conditioner, whatever.
You are not allowed to stop him when he is inside your own yard?
