Elderly man shoots home invader
This is about the 4th or 5th incident of this type in the Jackson area in the last year or so.
People are taking up for themselves and taking advantage of the Castle law.
JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -
A home invader got more than he bargained for when he tried to rob an elderly west Jackson couple Tuesday morning.
82-year-old Paul Mikell, a retired brick mason, was awakened about 8:30 a.m. to the sound of his wife screaming. He got his .32 caliber handgun and headed for the front of the house. There he found his wife struggling with a man in his 30's who had invaded their home and was yelling where's the money.

Mikell wanted us to tell you if there is a next time, he will be armed with a more powerful weapon, at least a .38 caliber.
Go .45 or don't waste my time!

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
