    Suspected burglar killed at Tulsa home

    A Tulsa homeowner shot and killed a man who was breaking into his house early Tuesday, police said.

    Shortly before 3 a.m., three individuals broke into a home in the 1300 block of North Irvington Avenue, Tulsa Police Cpl. Mark Shelton said.

    Many of the 15 to 20 occupants were awake, including the homeowner, who heard the break-in and got his gun.

    Two of the burglars, including one who was armed, were moving through the house when they encountered the homeowner, Shelton said.

    Gunfire was exchanged. The homeowner shot one of the burglars twice in the chest, and the homeowner's wife was shot in the abdomen.

    The wounded burglar left the house before collapsing and dying in the front yard. His name has not been released.

    The homeowner's wife was hospitalized but is expected to recover.

    The other two burglars ran from the house and were not located, Shelton said. They were described as black, in their late teens and wearing hooded sweatshirts and dark baggy pants.
    =========

    20 people? picked the wrong house to rob.
     
  2. The homeowner having a gun only escalated the situation. When will people learn not to oppose criminals?

    No reason to shoot the robber obviously he just had a gun for intimidation purposes

    when will criminals learn that they shouldn't be doing bad shit, that home owner did the right thing by having that gun. It could of gotten worst had the home owner not even owned a gun and the criminals holding everyone up. That guy did the right thing.

    no, he should've just called the police and complied with the invader's demands. That's what cops are there for- they're obligated to protect us.

    So let me get this straight, i should call the police while they are holding me and my family up... and give up. pft, i don't give a shit what anyone says about gun control. That guy did the right thing, he protected his family and even though his wife was injured it could of gotten worst, the criminals could of executed everyone. Criminals should of not been there to begin with.

    Suppose a person breaks into your house at night and attacks you with a knife. Now, according to the right-wing point of view, you would be justified in shooting him with the gun you keep hidden under your pillow.

    However, it is impossible to truly understand the circumstances leading up to this person's breaking into your house. Perhaps he is a minority. Maybe he was made fun of in school for being a homosexual. He is probably poor. Knowing these facts, how can you, an upper middle class exploiter, be justified in ending this man's life? The answer is: you can't.


    In fact this man is homeless and was merely looking for some food to feed his starving family. By killing him in so-called self-defense you are no better than a common murderer.

    I live like 3 miles from where this happened, there's no doubt in my mind that it was tweakers or Mexicans.
