    Man Accused Of Shooting Alleged Sacramento Car Thief

    Wed Apr 4, 6:36 PM ET

    A south Sacramento man who told police he was defending his property was arrested early Wednesday after shooting a teenager who was allegedly trying to steal his car, authorities said.

    Police said 42-year-old Sou Saechin told them he accidentally shot the teen at about 3 a.m. on Rock Creek Way.

    But officials said Saechin went too far in trying to protect his red Honda.

    "What we try to stress to people is that deadly force, the use of a firearm, is never justified under any circumstances to protect property," said Sgt. Matt Young of the Sacramento Police Department.

    Police said Saechin came outside of his home armed with a .22-caliber rifle and confronted three alleged burglars.

    Saechin fired one shot, hitting one of the alleged burglars in the chest. The three fled the scene, police said.

    Saechin's wife said her husband was not trying to kill anyone but only wanted to warn the robbers.

    Saechin was taken to jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. Bail was set at $30,000.

    The injured teenager was taken to Kaiser Permanente Medical Center for treatment and is expected to survive. Police said they are looking for two other people who were involved in the attempted theft. The men were described as Asian and between 18 and 20 years old.

    That's the area for you. I'm just glad it hasnt migrated up here yet. I live in Sac county in Carmichael and it's pretty good. We get little hoodlims fucking with stuff every now and then but no shootings really. I like to think that no one would mess with my neighbor and I though as I live in a bachelor house so there is almost always someone here and the neighbor next door is 27 and she always has people over too and we all stay up late.

    He's in Cali, he used a firearm in a manner consistent with their design, namely.. defense, and someone died. He's fucked. Shotgun or .22, it's a gun. Verboten in Mexifornia.

    The same thing would happen in almost every other state in the country. Most states won't allow you to use lethal force to defend property. I'm not sure this is right since someone's car with liability only might be their livelihood but...

    I love how they've already arrested the guy that was protecting his property but they're on the fence about getting the person trying to steal a car.

    so what would you say in this case without lying?

    "I was in a self defense situation. I would like to speak to my lawyer." ?
