That was the lede I woke up to, as the TV newscaster reported with a smile that someone had broken into a far-southside home...and been shot by the homeowner. Non-fatally, but the suspect is in hospital -- and handcuffs.
No gentle chidings from the police, no tut-tuttings from the media; kick in someone's door around here and you're likely to meet lead.
Well done, Mr. Homeowner!
