Homeowner shoots, kills burglar in the act (Florida)

31-year-old Earnest Holdman was a career criminal whose career came to an abrupt end last week.

It seems Holdman decided he was going to break into a Miami area home and steal some lawn equipment. How was Holdman goign to break into the trailer that stored the equipment? By cutting a hole in the roof. Yup.

The appropriately named resident, Dennis Law, found Holdman in the act and opened fire three times on the criminal. Holdman fled the scene and only made it to the house next door where he was found dead by police.

A quick summary of Holdman's criminal record:

I like Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law. 776.013 (d) (4) A person who unlawfully and by force enters or attempts to enter a person’s dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle is presumed to be doing so with the intent to commit an unlawful act involving force or violence. Pretty much sums it up right there. Just make sure the shitbird is dead (if your going to shoot), so they can't come back at ya with a lawsuit!
In contrast with the John Wayne syndrome, taking a human life will haunt you for a life time, unless your a psychopath. Ask anyone who has taken a human life.

"taking a human life will haunt you for a life time, unless your a psychopath"
