Some dude really thinks he’s in a relationship with Sanaa Lathan, to the point where he walks right up into her house and goes to sleep.

Last Friday, contractors caught 28-year-old Shawn Caples asleep in Lathan’s laundry room, reports TMZ. Caples claimed to be Lathan’s husband, but contractors sent him on his merry way.

But then he returned later the same day.

This time Lathan caught him, screaming “Get the f—k out of here!” but he refused to leave.

Lathan called the police, but Caples still reappeared on Monday. Dude! Caples was arrested for stalking; upon his release from jail, he will have to stay at least 100 yards from Lathan.

I hate to say this, but I think he’ll be back.

    i can’t get with all the kill him comments (dude might actually have a mental disorder & even if he don’t i’m sad that killing is the new go to solution for somebody just walking on your property) but i definitely think she needs to hire beefed up security or move… & i agree with whoever said we need more women in the justice system so something better than a restraining order can be put in place to protect folks from stalkers… like mandatory minimum 3-6 months in jail

    • Anthony

      I’m not bloodthirsty. If he has mental issues, it is the job of his family and the state to get him treatment, not Latham. If he rapes or kills Latham, the fact that he is mentally ill won’t untraumatize her or bring her back from the dead. Sanaa Latham is in danger for her life, and if the state does not remove the menace, she has every right to use deadly force to guarantee her safety.

    • Me

      i’m not saying she needs to save him, all i said was there should be mandatory mins and that killing shouldn’t be the go to move for an intruder even if there’s nothing wrong with him mentally. “deadly force to ***guarantee*** your safety” is the same as shooting down everybody you think looks scary and then no human life is worth anything anymore. you can’t undo killing somebody. there are other ways to deal with intruders that don’t need a gun to escalate the situation.

    • Anthony

      An intruder has already committed a felony by breaking into your home. It is not the same thing shooting someone because looks threatening or scary when shooting an intruder.

      A victim cannot undo a murder or rape. The solution is simple: do not break into someone’s home.

    • Me

      yea. ok. folks act like guns are the only way to solve problems. if guns never existed i bet people could come up with a million & 1 ways to solve the problem without taking somebody elses life. but instead everybody talking about killing like it’s the only option then trying to make excuses when other folks use the same logic to do it to us. being scared is only a good excuse if we’re the ones saying it right? but let that white guy in detroit say he was scared of renisha and it;s outrage. let those cops say they were scared that jonathan was about to lunge at them & its outrage. let george say he was scared trayvon was about to beat him up & its outrage. all of a sudden we get to pick & choose who gets to die on the spot & when it’s ok to use fear of somebody being where they not supposed to be to kill folks.

    • Anthony

      I think the main flaw in your argument is that in all of the high profile shootings of black people since Trayvon Martin, not one of those victims did anything to the shooter that was illegal or threatening. Ms. McBride, knocked on the shooter’s door, which is totally legal, and the shooter was under no pressure to open the door at all. The young man in Florida was sitting in his car, listening to music, when he was shoot by a racist bully. Martin was walking down the street when he was accosted by Zimmerman. None of those situations is even close to a documented stalker who is already on record as having broken into his victim’s house. Violently confronting a person who has broken into your house is completely different from shooting a stranger knocking on your door, or shooting someone that you approached for no reason walking down a public street.

      I see no connection at all between Sanaa Lathan’s situation and the needless killing of McBride, Martin, or Jordan Davis.

    • Me

      no. jonathan was the football player who got into a car crash and when he walked up to police they said he lunged at them which is illegal so they killed. trayvon is the kid who was beating george up which is illegal so he killed him. all of the cases are based on the living person’s version of the events that says they were scared so they killed. it’s the same thing you using to try & excuse sanaa killing in the future for.

    • Anthony

      The guy in North Carolina was killed by the police, and everyone knows that it is very very difficult to convict a police officer for killing anone, especially a black person. Zimmerman’s legal rationale for shooting Trayvon Martin only holds water in the context of stand your ground, and I do not believe California, where Sanaa Latham lives is a stand your ground state. As I said before, I think stand your ground is bad law. I also think it is discriminatory and immoral.

      I just don’t see a similarity in Latham’s situation. She is not dealing with an unknown person. She is dealing with someone who has broken into her house more than one time. This man may be totally harmless, but he may become more obsessed or delusional and really hurt Latham. Latham would not be some vigilante or tough guy looking to prove his manhood by shooting someone.

      It is also a fact that if she or any security she hires has a confrontation with the stalker will have more legal cover if the suspect can no longer give his side of the story. That is something I learned long ago working security. Once again, if a person does not break in to someone’s house, they don’t have to worry about a homeowner who feels it might be better legally to kill him or her.

      “everyone knows that it is very very difficult to convict a police officer for killing anone”… so that means what? killing somebody should depend on whether or not you can get away with it? & it’s only wrong if you use syg as a defense? so b/c he MAY be x y or z in the future, she should just kill him now, even though the police & the courts are on her side, she could hire security for her & her property, etc … basically guns & killing should be the main thing on her mind b/c everybody deserves to die even if other options are available to use. so that dad that beat up that boy that was in his house sexing up his daughter a few months ago shoulda just killed him instead of hitting him, and the other dad that found a boy under his daughter’s bed was justified in killing him even though he wasn’t actually an “intruder”… as long as we’re the ones killing & fearing it’s alright… we ain’t gotta think about any other way to solve our problems b/c we got guns & that should be option #1. but if it’s other folks killing & using fear as an excuse than we need to rally for justice.

    • Anthony

      Sanaa Latham is a grown woman with more resources than most people. I suspect she will do what she thinks is right for her. If I were her, I would be prepared to shoot the man if he came back. You would not do that. I respect your choice whether you respect mine or not.

    • Me

      so here’s a question i have for you. since b&e is a felony, are you saying since sanaa didn’t have a gun dude should be sentenced to the death penalty or life without parole instead of that restraining order?

    • Anthony

      That does not make sense. Using that logic, forgetting to lock your car door should be a ten year sentence.

      I respect peoples’ values and decisions. If you are against guns for self defense, don’t buy a gun for yourself. I think self defense is a proper response to a stalker who has repeatedly broken into a person’s house.

    • Me

      i never said I’m against guns for self defense. i’m just against everybody kneejerking to killing this dude over being on her property. it’s so many ways she could protect herself & get justice for what he did but folks are jumping to killing him as the only way to protect herself. so if it’s ok for her to kill him for breaking in then it must be ok for the courts to sentence him to death for the same crime. either way he ends up dead for what he did right?

    • Mary Burrell

      @Me: I am afraid it’s come to this, better to be safe than sorry. These are the times we are living in unfortunately. A person has to protect themselves. It’s ok to disagree.

    • Me

      “better to be safe” = better to kill somebody? i don’t agree. especially considering all those kids got killed in the past year with that same logic (jonathan ferrel, renisha McBride, etc)

    • noirluv45

      @ Me, above I mentioned the actress, Rebecca Schaeffer. She was the star of “My Sister Sam.” If you aren’t aware of her unfortunate story, a man by the name of Robert John Bardo stalked her for three years. One day, he went to her house, and when she opened the door, he shot her dead.

      To me, it’s get them before they get you. With these stalkers, you never know what’s in their mind. The man had the balls to return to her house. What’s more, when she confronted him, he refused to leave. He’s obviously mental, so he needs to be committed to a psyche ward OR arrested.

      I don’t advocate just shooting someone dead, but trust and believe, if someone shows up at my house, and I perceive them as a treat, especially after I told them they were not welcomed, I will do whatever is in my power to stop him. If that means killing him before he kills me or mine, well, that’s the risk he took when he came to my house uninvited. JMO.

    • Me

      like i said to anthony… i’m not against self defense or guns. i’m against all the “she shoulda killed him” comments. it’s sad that rebecca died & didn’t have more resources for the situation, but i googled the lady & she woulda died regardless. the first time dude met her in person he ended up killing her. her having a gun wouldn’t have saved her life cuz all she did was answer the door when he rang the bell. & on top of that his story points to what i said before that i agree there should be more women in the justice system beefing up the kinda protections folks have against stalkers b/c he met a whole lot of folks before he even got to her that coulda put him in jail. him carrying a knife to the studio where she worked & the fact that cali made it easy for him to walk into the dmv & basically ask for her address & get it on the spot was another problem in the situation. like i said, foks are kneejerking to killing this dude like it’s the end all way to solve sanaa’s problem. if folks started killing intruders on the spot, a buncha paparrazzi would be dead right now, all those teenagers that pull those immature pranks on celebrities would be dead right now, & who knows who else b/c everybody deserves to die & nobody is responsible for finding other ways to solve problems so long as guns are the first line of defense.

    • noirluv45

      OK, I see your point. I just hope she protects herself whatever way she can.

  • noirluv45

    Anyone remember what happened to Rebecca Schaeffer from, “My Sister Sam” fame? Bardo stalked her for three years before shooting her dead.

    Like others have stated, Sanaa need to get armed because this guy stalking her isn’t wrapped too tight. I went to his FB page, and it’s clear by his ramblings that he’s two fries short of a Happy Meal.
