    Cincinnati homeowner defends self against broad-daylight home invasion
    by Chad D. Baus - 7:00am Tuesday, February 23, 2016

    WLWT (NBC Cincinnati) reported recently that a man was forced to defend his life when four men entered his home, and one threatened to kill him with a knife.

    From the article:

    The incident happened around 2:15 p.m. at a home near the intersection of Maple and Locust streets.

    Police said the man living in the home called police, saying he shot a man who entered the home.

    According to 911 calls obtained by WLWT, the caller tells dispatchers, “Guy just tried to come in here and cut my throat and he's dying on the floor."

    Police arriving at the home found one man inside the home with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Officials said the man living at the home is cooperating with police.

    The article goes on to say that the resident reported that four people entered the home and threatened to kill him with a knife. Three others were still on the scene when police arrived and were questioned, officials said.

    A fourth person stayed in a car while the burglary was in progress, and fled the scene in a gold vehicle.

    Under Ohio's Castle Doctrine law, if someone unlawfully enters or attempts to enter an occupied home or temporary habitation, or occupied car, citizens have an initial presumption that they may act in self defense, and will not be second-guessed by the State.

    It's not that odd. Many houses are empty during the day, so easier to rob; and the home invasion tactic makes the bad guy feel powerful.

    I'm just amazed that none of the bad guys had a gun. Guess they overestimated their "power".:p

    Also...what does this say about that silly "inside 25 feet, the knife beats a gun" argument?;)

    It says that most people don't understand the argument being made and have never bothered to look up it's supposed to be communicating. :rolleyes:

    The street below the back of my house, at the bottom of the cliff..... They back up to a field by a main drag..... Unless they're mountaineers, I don't think they'll pull that stunt on my cul de sac...
