I was living in a rough part of Richmond, and a few days after my car was vandalized I had abrick come in through my back window of the house. I was chastised by the police for having my pistol in a holster on my hip when they got their. I told them I'm sorry if they felt that way, but I was going to defend my family. I cant remember what else theysaid, because Iwas just wanting a police report number and not listening to their"Safety speech".http://www.boston.com/news/local/mas...s_for_service/
When I first heard this story I figured this guy was done being a free man. Apparently the jury thought he was in fear enough for his and his familys life.
