According to a recent article in the Arizona Republic (http://www.azcentral.com/community/phoenix/articles/20131108police-suspected-burglar-shot-by-phoenix-homeowner.html), Phoenix homeowners have been shooting a lot of burglars. In one instance cited in the article, a homeowner shot a burglar with the burglar’s gun – must have been one tough homeowner, and he didn’t even have to pay for the ammo.
I applaud these people for protecting themselves and their families, and I believe their courage in the face of crime will deter future burglaries. Certainly the shot burglars who survive their wounds and prison time are going to rethink their career paths. And those who perished committing their crimes have permanently been removed from the criminal work force.
And so the process of decivilization continues.
