If the person was already in my house there is no reason to ask questions. I hope I never have to defend my families life with a firearm but thats why I try to go to the range every Sunday.

The resident became the aggressor when he followed the retreating invader outside and attacked him. I understand why the officer arrested him. No jury will convict him. Did the district attorney pursue the charge?

the way i read it, and unless i'm mistaken, they were on the balcony when they were scuffling. the "intruder" came up the balcony and broke out a window? not for sure. but IMO, the officer is totally wrong.

with a good attorney, i see the officer looking for new job. it really sounds like unlawful arrest and i would be suprised if the DA pursues it any further.

Thats the way I read it also. The guy climbed to the second story balcony and broke a window to gain access to the apartment.

unless i read it wrong, or misunderstood or they worded it wrong that was what i gathered as well.

person breaking my window out, and enters my home, well,,,,,,,i'll let people draw their own conclusions on that one.

I don't know if the DA is pursuing it, I hope not. To reiterate - the balconies are private. Accessible only from the inside of the apartments (unless you climb the side of the building).

then the officer is still wrong, as it means the intruder had broken and the resident had retreated as far as he could go if they were scuffling on the balcony.
