The locked door, says "do not enter". This is the warning. Locking my door tells anyone who tries to open it that I do not want them to come in. Those that would perpetrate a home invasion are well aware that someone in the house may very well be armed.
SPARTA, Tenn. -- A man wanted for home break-ins in as many as 10 counties picked the wrong house last week in White County.
Police said the burglar, Bryan Cook, 32, of Crossville, attempted to rob a house but was shot and killed by homeowner, Keith Girdley.
Girdley told authorities he arrived home Thursday morning to find Cook about to leave after breaking inside.
When he asked Cook what he was doing, he said the burglar pulled a gun from his waistband. That's when Girdley pulled out his own gun and shot the man.
We work hard for what we have, we do so legally, and no one has a right to take that from us. So......make my day!
A 22-year-old Pascua Yaqui man is fighting extradition to Tucson on charges of first- degree murder in the attempted robbery of a neighborhood market Monday that ended in gunfire.
Police said the man, whose name is not being released until he is formally charged, and 18-year-old Raymond Martinez were trying to rob the Grand Market, 6250 S. Sixth Ave., when gunfire erupted.
Martinez fired at least one shot at a market employee and wounded him before the employee returned fire, fatally wounding Martinez, police said.
The employee, who is not being identified because he is a crime victim, was taken to a hospital and treated for a non-life-threatening wound.
Police said the robbery was gang related.
The 22-year-old is being held by Pascua Yaqui police on an unrelated warrant, said Sgt. Mark Robinson, a Tucson police spokesman.
A hearing will be held early next week to determine if the man will be extradited to Tucson, where he would face a first-degree murder charge under the felony murder law, Robinson said.

To me there is something very immoral about a government which desires we pick up a gun to fight their dirty wars and yet not own one ourselves.
Also the type of work we do and the number of lives in our very hands ...and we cannot be trusted with a gun? What does this say about the basic insecurities of government ...state, local, and federal??
