Chief Tango sends us today’s feel good story from Jackson, Mississippi when a homeowner heard his dog barking and went outside to find someone burglarizing his car;
The owner of a home in the 1700 block of Tanglewood Cove told police he heard a noise about 6 a.m. and went outside to discover that a man had broken into his car. The homeowner opened fire, shooting 20-year-old Quardious Thomas, who was still inside the car, police said. Thomas died at a local hospital, police said.
Police haven’t released the name of the homeowner, but said he will not be charged. Mississippi’s Castle Doctrine allows the use of deadly force to defend against a felony being committed against oneself, another person, or one’s home.
Apparently, young Quardious who was busy turning his life around, broke into six other cars in the neighborhood that night and there had been more than 30 break-ins this year so far. This might put a cork in that stuff.
