Detroit Police Chief James Craig is telling homeowners to take the law in their own hands when it comes to thugs. Craig has given homeowners the green light to shoot up the thugs that are breaking into their homes.
“A lot of good Detroiters are fed up,” Craig said. “The message should be that, you know, people are going to protect themselves,” reported the Blaze.
Craig advised, “criminals in Detroit should know they shouldn’t just be afraid of the police — they should also be afraid of responsible gun owners who are prepared to defend themselves and their homes.”
Last week, a female concealed carry permit holder shot and killed a would-be car jacker and another homeowner fatally shot a 17-year-old trying to break into his home.
“If you are confronted with an immediate threat to your safety, you’re not going to have time to dial 911,” Craig said. “It becomes an issue of, the threat is here, I have to respond to the threat.”
Craig also gave gun owners some advice, and that was to practice common sense. He said they should never chase a suspect down and shoot them, or prematurely shoot every time someone knocks on the door. Apparently no one told Renisha McBride’s killer that.
