Valid self-protection should not be punished. A Tennessee man found himself behind bars after returning fire at thieves who were trying to steal a van outside his home.
A Shelby County man was notified by his surveillance system at around 2 a.m. that several people were outside his home and using burglary tools in an effort to break into a van, Fox 13 Memphis reported. After the man walked outside, the thieves fired shots at him as he stood beneath the porch light of his home, according to the outlet. Security video shows the homeowner and the suspects shooting at each other several times.
The thieves fled the scene and the man went back into his house, but when police arrived, the man’s wife said they began interrogating him. "When they were talking to him, from what I saw, it was like they were trying to find ways to charge him," the homeowner’s wife told Fox 13 Memphis. "That doesn’t sound right. Why would you put pressure on the victim when you should put pressure for the suspects to be found."
Deputies say the man told them that he couldn’t clearly see what he was targeting and admitted to firing shots with his eyes closed due to being scared and shooting at the suspects as they fled, the outlet noted. The man, who has not been publicly identified, was eventually arrested and charged with reckless endangerment but later released, and his family hopes the charge will be dropped, according to Fox 13 Memphis.
