In 1973 when i still lived in Boise Idaho . A family friend shot a Peeping Tom in the back pockets with a 20 gauge as he tried to climb a board fence and get away . The Peeping Tom situation was well documented for the area with the police . He was never charged with a crime for the shooting . The guy lived . My neighbor was a sargent on the police force and said that he was within his rights to shoot . I don't think you could do that now . Times have changed . Brett.
