    Shooter in Tupelo may face a manslaughter charge. Mississippi Code of 1972 SEC. 97-3-29. Homicide; killing while committing a misdemeanor. Assailant (TRESPASSER) in Tupelo had trespassed (a misdemeanor “ONLY”if a NO TRESPASSING sign is veiwable or the person was warned to stay off the property) upon a property. Property owner opened the door; shoot and killed the trespasser. AND GUESS WHAT, NOT KNOWING (having knowledge of) THIS LAW IS NOT A DEFENSE.

    Mississippi currently has no self-defense law; however, under Mississippi’s Code Sec. 97-3-15. Homicide; justifiable homicide; deadly force must be necessary; the shooter’s life must be in eminent danger. Shooter was within his/her dwelling (not within reach of the offender). Could have called 911; turned on an outside light or simply yelled “I have a gun”. Shooter in Tueplo opened their door; thereby, stepped into the danger zone.

    We need MORE people like the homeowner and you would see a HUGE DROP in crime.
    I applaude this person for standing up for his/her rights.

      yes but some bleeding heart liberal will cry fowl and say he didn’t have to shoot. He could have just talked to him and this would have been different. yeah right…
