The Friday, July 29 Knoxville News-Sentinel contains reports of two instances of criminal foolishness that resulted in death.
One case involves an intruder who was killed by a homeowner in Union County. It was a fatal error.
The other case involves a man who decided to fight it out with deputies in Blount County. It appears that in the scuffle, his head impacted unforgiving pavement. Another fatal error.
In gun-friendly rural East Tennessee, home invaders are as likely as not to meet armed resistance. They could just be signing their own death warrant.
Fighting with the po-po can come to no good end. Police officers have to win. And, they have backup and radios.
Another thing those of malevolent mind should consider. Tennessee no longer requires a permit to keep a defensive gun in a vehicle.
