Man Shoots, Kills Drunk Intruder Who Broke Into His Home and Attacked His Son – So Why Are Police Investigating Case as a Homicide?
Police are investigating a potential homicide in Ontario, Calif., after a resident shot and killed a drunk intruder who broke into his apartment and attacked his sleeping son.
In California, citizens have a right to protect themselves and their families…
As everyone freaking should…
…however, there are stipulations in the state.
“The homeowner, the citizen, has to be able to articulate or apply the appropriate amount of force that was done against them,” Ontario Police Sgt. David McBride told NBC Los Angeles, later adding that Manzano was unarmed at the time of the shooting.
Seriously? This is the most irrational kind of thinking. So all of a sudden we’re supposed to be fair to intruders/attackers? How’s that supposed to work?
"Hey do you have a gun?"
"Ok. I’ll put mine down."
"Do you have a knife?"
"Crap… I don’t."
Why on earth is this even an issue? The man was protecting his son against an attacker!
The case is now being investigated as a homicide and the district attorney will determined whether the shooting was justified, according to officials.
The resident and his son were cooperating with police.
Manzano’s uncle, “Alfonso,” told NBC Los Angeles that the shooting was not justified.
Oh it wasn’t? What part of “a drunk intruder who broke into his apartment and attacked his sleeping son” don’t you understand?!
“Just because you have a gun and its registered, doesn’t give you the right to kill somebody,” he said.
True… but the man was drunk and attacking his son! You of all people should understand that, One: drunk people have no rational thoughts… and two: neither do people whose children are being attacked in their own homes!
I know this rant won’t change anything. I know that it will only get worse. But I have a hard time accepting this.
Military veteran Corey Thompson, 36, told KDRV-TV that the wanted felon was trying to beak into his home via the back door. Defending his property, Thompson said he warned the criminal that he was armed and he was giving him his one and only warning shot.
“This is the end result. You break into someone’s house, there’s consequences,” Thompson said.
Wielding his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, the veteran made good on his threat and fired one warning shot. The bullet did not strike the suspect or anyone else.
However, police later determined he wasn’t justified in firing his weapon. Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau said “there was nothing that the suspect was doing that was aggressive enough to justify the shooting.”
Hey thanks for your service to this country and for protecting the neighborhood. Now give us your gun.
I’m getting sick and tired of this. We need to start standing up for these people who’s freedoms are being taken away. These are the things we should be protesting and creating havoc about.
In New York state, legislators in both chambers have proposed bills that would force Web sites to police the identities of anonymous commenters.
Under the proposed Internet Protection Act (S06779), when anyone complains about an anonymous (or pseudonymous) comment, the Web site must make the commenter attach their “real name” to the comment or the anonymous comment would by law have to be removed.
That’s right: if someone doesn’t like your comment the Web site will be legally bound to make you reveal your identity. The accused commenter will also be required to verify that his or her “IP address, legal name and home address are accurate.”
This is old news, but things like this happen all the time and that is not old. Even on my own college campus, students are getting ticketed for parking in “non-parking zones” that aren’t even clearly marked.
People need to stand up against things like this! And like stated in the video, “fighting back” is not “looking for a fight”, it’s only standing up for your rights and we shouldn’t be afraid to do so.
Let me know your thoughts on this! Whether it be about standing up for one’s rights or about this particular situation.

This is why I love dolphins! …’cause they help save dogs!
Remember that time a bear rode a horse in China and it filled us with terror? Well, today we bring you a story of animal collaboration that will fill you with joy — which might be much-needed in a week when it seems like a large section of the Eastern hemisphere is going straight to hell. Earlier this week, an eleven-year-old Doberman named Turbo escaped from his yard and plunged into a canal in Marco Island in Florida. Since the vertical walls of the canal are high, Turbo couldn’t get out, and was forced to tread water against the current for over half a day. Nobody noticed him until, fifteen hours into his ordeal, a lady living nearby heard strange splashing. It wasn’t Turbo, who by that time was exhausted. It was a pod of dolphins who had found him and were staying with him, splashing loudly until they received human attention. The neighbor jumped into the canal and fished him out. When owner Cindy Burnett was joyfully reunited with her pooped pet, she fretted that he had been alone and scared for so long. “No,” the unnamed rescuer told her. “The dolphins were with him.”
