Default Homeowner Kills Home Invasion Perp - Sister-In-Law Of Perp Offended

http://www.myfoxdfw.com/story/212372...oak-cliff-home

DALLAS -
An elderly man shot and killed a would-be burglar inside his Oak Cliff home.

Police say the homeowner saw Deyfon Pipkins, 33, trying to climb into the window and fired his weapon at least once at the intruder.

The homeowner is legally protected by the Castle Doctrine, which allows a person to defend his or her home against an intruder.

"It means they don't actually have to retreat once someone comes in their home," Sergeant Calvin Johnson, Dallas Police Department, said. "You have the option of using deadly force if you believe your life is in danger."

After police notified relatives of Pipkins' death, some showed up at the house. They were upset, and questioned the homeowner's actions.

"He could have used a warning," Lakesha Thompson, Pipkins' sister-in-law, said. "He could have let him know that he did have a gun on his property and he would use it in self-defense."


Pipkins had a lengthy criminal record. He served time in prison and was convicted of theft, possession of a Controlled Substance and criminal trespassing.

The homeowner has not been charged with anything, but Dallas police will refer the case to the Grand Jury to decide if he acted criminally in shooting the intruder.

Lakesha. That tells me all I need to know. A ghetto-rat at best.

::facepalm::

These are the people that I own weapons to defend myself from. BTW, I don't need a gun - I'm a proficient archer and knife-thrower and I'm *ALWAYS* armed.

really? Really? REALLY? Lakesha, let me warn you - if your brother, baby-daddy or evil-spawn are in my house uninvited, I damned sure will defend myself.

Really? After his "lengthy arrest record" he needed a warning that breaking and entering is bad? Well, he got one, in the form of a fatal gunshot wound. Seems the homeowner did what the court system failed to do, he convinced your scumbag brother-in-law to give up his life of crime. And for that I commend him.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Lakesha and the rest of the Pimpkin family will sue the homeowner.

They may need to do that to help offset the loss of whatever welfare money and food stamps that went away when Pipkin died doing what he apparently did best: being a criminal.

What a sad loss of a promising young man. I'm sure he was just on the verge of turning his life around too.

Should had the dead hood rat given the homeowner a "warning' he was going to robbed?

Homeowner should have capped Lakesha's *** too for good measure.Her actions could be considered threats.

If he had joined CF instead of embarking on a life of crime, he could have gotten double secret probation before getting perma banned.

The old man should have left the door open for Lakesha and friends to enter and then eliminated more of this plague on society.

He needs to make sure they are locked. Lakesha and the relatives may come back.

Keep the lights off and put one of these on the AR-15.
