Charges Aren't Planned In Killing Of Mich. Burglar


Recommended Posts

WARREN, Mich. (AP) — Prosecutors say they won't bring charges against a Detroit-area homeowner who fatally shot a 17-year-old boy who was burglarizing his house.


William Cataldo is the chief of homicide cases for the Macomb County prosecutor's office. He tells The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens on Tuesday that the 31-year-old homeowner in Warren had a right to defend himself when Mack Click climbed through a window on May 2.


Prosecutors say the teen was armed with a knife.


Police say the homeowner fired one shotgun blast, striking the teen in the groin and thigh. Police say the homeowner had medical marijuana but they've ruled that out as a factor in the break-in. Police say the teen and the homeowner didn't know each other

What's most important here is to get as much good as possible from a bad situation.


It's a very bad thing that someone dies.


But that fact needs to be published. It curbs young people from becoming hard cases.


It slows this kind of crime way down in the area that it takes place in.


Young folks are reminded that walking into someones home is not a game. People die doing this.
