    Had every right to shoot him trespassing breaking and entering I would have done the same they’ll let the convict go and put an innocent man in prison

  2. No had no grounds the man could have been confused he USED deadly force without the threat of bodily harm UNACCEPTABLE! he should have called the law . Common sense would dictate that if someone is standing in your shower something is amiss – let the law determine what it is!
