And it victims finally standing up for themselves and if you do audio avoid arrest lawyer fees and possible jail time. In this minister allegedly for. It was arrested after he allegedly jumped in his truck and followed some people were stealing -- I don't think you can do that now and and remember the old rule from the DA don't shooter missed their running away game you can't do that that doesn't work and of people wonder why Hillary's and -- fine line between defending yourself and and clip and some body and set -- you know I -- Where it's like it much -- my -- and and what's the matter with an air and it's you know aside -- -- pavement. Couple in Manhattan it's like well why do you do that steeler -- copper -- every two friends for years and years. To break iMac remains the -- Tommy Tucker David Blake Shelden Williams Jordan fetal and you want to -- that you. Tommy -- 618 under the W out cloudy hot mostly cloudy hot humid today at 30% chance for showers and pretty much know the routine has to be that way through the weekend a woman was arrested for shooting a man at her apartment door or maybe he was in the apartment because he mistook her for relative don't quite understand what happened that. She was taken into custody and with seven shootings so far this year justifiable homicides two people shot. Which resulted in a rest we thought we'd take some time with professor of law at loyal DNC Alina talk about. The law and in what it says in terms of defending yourself and shooting good morning professor you don't. -- a time with this tell me Tom I guess who were with the tribal areas are when it comes to. Protecting yourself then and there isn't simple rules of -- keep yourself from being arrested. The law in the area pretty it's pretty simple up and you are. A lot to use force to protect yourself and your property on the force. It is in -- -- a quote from them -- -- reasonable and apparently not hurt prevent these patents. And to the laws reasonable the difficulty becomes in determining what under all circumstances. Of the shooting or. Yeah or or or the use of physical bodies of physical sports weather is really necessary to prevent the -- The recent shoot with the pastor. Involved in the after shooting people aren't fielder conditioning -- you know raise these questions that did the recent shooting you'd talked about choosing the person trying to our. Apartment. It but they're really -- in India are actually should be should be. And and there was difficult for police to investigate because. Usually either there or witnesses of and that demand. And the shooter. And they beat -- sort out because repair it actually intent. See the thing I always wondered about in and you didn't. You don't want anybody to get attacked and I have the right to defend themselves. On the other hand you don't wanna be open season where one person gets a murder the other because they're in their home and I don't like -- so I would imagine and one of the things a police do is look for connection between the victim and the shooter. Absolutely and those are some of the facts that are there on -- Evaluation excellent look bourse was. We really necessary to prevent the entry -- open or to protect the person. Or as justice an excuse for. And shooting that was caught by something else like for example hatred for the victim or. Or animosity or or or some arteries. So if generally speaking if you don't know the person in your house and you feel as though your life is threatened even though they're not armed. You live upstairs and announcers trying to steer your stuff do you have. -- did the right then aide did to shoot somebody and then I guess of Iran and a way you can I would below a look at that. Well if the person in your house there are a number of resumption set up in the in a law that. Generally would make it more permissible use for -- to bat or stare back Louisiana is among. The most. Equipment the term property at castle doctrine. Among those protective homeowners in the nation. -- you have no obligation to retreat. Your -- mr. castle one sent someone in -- out then there's the presumption that the use of course is not this year. Now that's just the presumption that's not a conclusion one. It's still would be reasonable necessary and circumstance. At the -- houses. -- -- Tampa and in the air as Lee Adams are. After all the on video tape that you should have been well under those circumstances. -- -- the -- your house it's not going to be a necessary shoot. Under those circumstances. But what the problem is there -- -- -- people out. So it makes it very difficult the actual matter sort out that the war was what is necessary and under that particular circumstances that particular -- But I would think if you're defending somebody you can make the argument -- you know the guy get up in the middle -- an idea here really know what was going on half asleep. Adrenaline has handshake -- like a leave. And he sees some money in his home and they move so he just starts firing I would think that would almost be an acceptable defense. That -- it going to be easier self defense eight as you could -- could crack the about now course. If the -- -- shooting turned out to be familiar -- aren't you just broke up. That starts looking like the shooting might have been some artery that -- but they've got -- Her purse and and then you got angry shop. Again it depends on the backs of all the clothes just what you were mentioned earlier but the sort -- -- that all the I did the homeowner about this person war. -- what they're prior animosity between them at the justice stranger who happened to be in your house in the middle of the night shoot them. -- can't imagine many BA that would actually prosecute that homeowner. And that didn't happen the defense or certainly would -- A lot of presumption work in favor of up its client -- homeowner and it would make it pretty self defense. I appreciate your time as I really do not be immediately -- -- Q you've been at -- the only you know. Professor of law at Leo again and mrs. Reagan I'd love to hear from -- 2601878038668890877. Justifiable homicides. And two people arrested I guess a record would be seven and two for people defending themselves. He -- victims are finally standing up for themselves and would you hesitate to shoot somebody in your home. Where would you worry about. Well at least it limited this way -- these legal fees if the persons inside your home would you give them a chance ally on the floor and surrender and wait for the police to come. Are you automatically opening fire -- -- colony know six when he time timely traffic. I'm probably opening fire -- what I'm doing right now -- time for them to WL traffic with Terrell Robinson. I Tommy Tucker talking about defending your home with a gun the only gun for self defense and so far this year -- Orleans -- seven into -- that's a record. Nine self defense shooting seven -- cleared by the police no charges two people were arrested. -- attacks here it comes -- it's an interesting of course if someone breaks in your house and -- gun pointed at them. They will probably say don't shoot if they do not present her she'll weapon themselves. De La. Which got an -- still using. They are cowards cowards but -- gunned down an offer a couple of coffee to them and see what happens. They in my house they are getting dropped I would prefer to be able to tell my story breathing and standings on it not having my family sounding.
