2014 is proving to be a good year for Motor City criminals to retire from the home-invasion robbery business. At least ten of them have already permanently moved on after being killed by homeowners defending their homes . . .
Police Chief James Craig called earlier this year for more Detroiters to legally arm themselves, and his department continues to support its citizens’ right of armed self-defense. Sgt. Michael Woody recently told the Detroit Free Press, “We are sick and tired of being victimized by the criminal element in this city. The citizens are protecting their homes and their property and their families, and they are well within their rights to do that.”
Two more robbers inadvertently arrived at their own permanent retirement party on March 25th, when they were interrupted while trying to break into a Detroit home. The homeowner, who has not been named, investigated noises late at night, and found two men outside trying to break into his home. When they tried to jump him, he shot and killed them.
