Starting Monday Off Right...

Yankeefried sends in the latest addition:

Albertville Police Identify Man Shot By Homeowner
ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Investigators do not expect charges to be filed against a homeowner who shot and killed a suspected burglar at his home Tuesday evening.

Officers responded to a call about a gunshot wound on Abbott Road just before 9 p.m., and Assistant Chief Jamie Smith said the homeowner made the call to report the shooting.

“We are in the early stages of the investigation, but right now we’re treating it as a burglary and the homeowner defending his property,” Smith said.
This is one of the *tamer* comments from the cops in this story. And I mean that in the "pro-homeowner" sense. It's refreshing to hear a police officer say, in effect, that you have the right to defend yourself against someone breaking into your home as opposed to the MA nonsense of "we discourage self-help"...

Notice, too, that this vindicates our Vice President:
Investigators said the homeowner fired just one shot with his shotgun
 although, to be fair, there's no indication he fired blindly through a door or off his balcony...

Dead Goblin Count: 382

That is all.
