Article bemoans the victimhood of armed home invaders
In it, we're told that "Kevin Fernandes is remembered as a loving daddy to his young daughter. Josh Henderson was said to be a good man to his family" and "Fernandes played football, basketball and ran track at Bethel High. In his News Tribune obituary, his family said "He lived life with passion and truly loved his family and friends." In a guest book note, his mother wrote: "I will keep your loving spirit alive and teach your baby girl all about her amazing daddy.""
The minor problem being that they broke into an ex-cop's house and, he says, advanced on him with a crowbar, and he shot in self-defense.
"Apparently there is bad gun violence and good gun violence." Yes.
"But of late, the law of defense has become more a law of offense, with homeowners - at least anecdotally - increasingly taking the lethal option." Hmmm... it leads off with two cases.
In one, a fellow who was likely psychotic attacked a homeowner, who warned him thru the locked door that he was armed, whereupon the fellow kicked in the door and came after him.
In the other a junkie broke through a kitchen window and was seen entering, hammer in hand.
It's hard to see that either homeowner was taking the offensive here....
