Hamilton homeowner shoots, kills man in robbery after being stabbed multiple times, police say
CINCINNATI -- Police said a man was shot to death and another was stabbed Thursday night during a home invasion in Hamilton.Generally, when someone breaks into your house and starts stabbing you, you've got a pretty good case for shooting them the hell dead. This is why the "your stuff isn't worth killing someone over" crowd is so full of s**t. You have no idea if the person kicking in your door is going to grab your laptop, Xbox, and loose cash and run back out the door, or if they're going to grab a knife out of the butcher block and try to kill you. You just don't know.
When officers arrived at the home in the 1800 block of Parrish Avenue, they found 38-year-old Robert D. Shoemaker with multiple stab wounds to his neck on his front porch.
In this case, the intruder broke in and started stabbing. To the forces against freedom, the homeowner should have engaged the assailant in knifeplay, rather than using the best tool for defense possible. Or better, engage a knife-wielding assailant with karate chops and judo throws - because everyone has an entire lifetime to devote to following Bruce Lee, right? They're simply horrified that we would take such a crude shortcut as a firearm.
"Give them what they want" only works if you assume that "what they want" is a chest full of 230 grain hollowpoints.

That is all.
