Self-defense in Brooklyn getting great press
"Goldstein's neighbors were relieved: One told the Post, "Hopefully, he'll make people think twice about coming here and knocking down doors," and another said, "As a person who's been an opponent of gun ownership, I'm glad he had one now.""
This is the type of story you'd never have seen in print a few years ago. Then it'd have been ignored or, if covered, had quotes from the burglar's family about how terrible it was. There is a quote from the burglar's mother, but it leaves the reader chuckling:
Maginat, who is at Brookdale Hospital, had eight prior arrests and was charged with robbery, criminal possession of a weapon and possession of burglar's tools. However his mother, a former auxiliary cop, told the Daily News that her son couldn't possibly be a burglar, "My son knows better than that."
