Nice to see a reasonable take on it from the police and actually have it printed.

One of two men shot in Hermon home invasion dies
HERMON, Maine — Maine State Police have identified the two men who were shot — one of them fatally — during a home invasion Thursday morning in Hermon.

...

“We can’t think within the mind of a person who is concerned about defending themselves,” he said. “Law enforcement uses that every day in our jobs.

“It could be as simple as the size of a person, [as in] they’re a much larger person than I,” he said. “They may have a club. They may have a bat they may be acting psychotic. Those are things that a person could use to make the decision about what type of force they think is necessary.”

Morton also was asked whether it matters if the intruder or attacker is armed.

“Not necessarily,” he said. “We can’t think with the mind of a person who is concerned about defending themselves. There are a lot of things that play into those factors. Law enforcement does that every day. That’s what’s in our use of force continuum.

“But those are the same parameters that a citizen can used to decide what necessary force is needed to protect themselves and their family,” he said.

Break into my home, make no threatening movements; just stand there in the hallway and see what happens.

That article was a brutal assault on coherent thought. Under most state laws, that article, itself, could have been shot.

Bad shoot. He left a witness.

Sounds good to me. I'm glad the police spokesman mentioned how their use of force continuum could be applied to any self defense situation, not just one involving the police.

That article is the most fucked up piece of reporting I've ever read! Either those Yankees speak a different tongue that we do, or they're some real dumbasses up there.

Can somebody translate the facts for me?

Was the BG shot in two different venues?

Did the BG and his pals hit more than one place?

Was the BG just shot in the legs...and bled out?

Did the shooter shoot through the car?

Why was the BG on the street in the first place, plying his given trade again? Can't those Yankees keep those mug in the slammer?

WTF was that cop saying????

Journalism student wants to be a real reporter, like Clark Kent, so he can "make a difference". So before he gets a job lying at the Washington Post, he has to learn to string words together at the East Podunk Daily.
