Defending Your Family and Home From Looters

Crime is on the rise in virtually every major metro city in the United States, and majority of these crimes are home invasions and burglaries. That is why a lot of homeowners are now installing home security cameras and motion detectors in their home to prevent and deter criminals from burglarizing their homes. Because everyone wants to have the peace of mind of knowing that their loved ones are safe and well-protected.
Similarly, not only do you have a legal right to Defend Your Family, your family and your home, you also have the basic fundamental human right to property protection. However, Protect Your Family and property can sometimes be legally complicated. Since these laws are not legislated by the Federal government, they vary from state to state. So you need to have a clear understanding of the self defense laws in your home state. For instance, a burglar breaks into your house and realizes you're in the house. He jumps out the window and starts running, you cannot chase him down the street and shoot him and claim you are defending your property. In December of 2009 a Detroit man was charged with second degree murder for killing a burglar, a block and half away from his home. Although you are required by law to flee first if someone is trying to attack you on the streets, however, you can use deadly force on anyone trying to attack you in your home without having to flee first. But the force you use must be proportionate to harm you are trying to prevent. In an incident in September of 2010, a Long Island, New York man was charged with reckless endangerment for firing warning shots into his lawn when some members of a notorious gang showed up at his home, verbally threatening him and  Protect Your Family From Offenders. The law says you can only use deadly force to deter deadly force. Furthermore, you are advised to verbally warn an intruder before using deadly force. This is because the intruder could your neighbor with Alzheimer's disease that mistook your home for his or could be your teenage daughter's boyfriend trying to sneak into your home.

Now, if you seriously injure or kill someone you will be arrested. The police will not assume you were acting in self defense. You will have to defend yourself again in a court of law. So do whatever you can to avoid situations where you have to use deadly force. Install security cameras, home alarms and motion detectors in your home to discourage these scumbags from coming near your home. But use deadly force if you have to, because I would rather defend myself again in a court of law than be kill or seriously injured.
