    I haven't heard the full story from him yet but my Dad just told me a few details. My uncle moved to Edgewater, MD a few months ago. His garage has been full of boxes that he never unpacked after the move. The other day he noticed that a few boxes were missing, so he decided to stay up late at night to see if someone was stealing them. Last night at around 10:30 he saw some movement in the garage, so he grabbed his .44 magnum revolver and went outside. He dialed 911 and held the gun to the BG"s head until the police arrived (I heard the police responded very quickly). After putting the BG in the back of the cop car, the officer told my uncle that he had caused him lots of trouble. Apparently the kid had crapped his pants and the cruiser smelled awful.

    If crapping his pants was the worst thing that happened to him then he got off very lightly. I don't think you ever get "minor wounds" from a 44 Magnum.

    Hopefully he gets some of his other stuff back that the burglar stole.

    Edgewater is getting all the trash from PG county moving in....

    I'm honestly surprised they didn't charge him with aggravated assault or something similar for using a gun to threaten someone.

    Md is a 'duty to retreat' state...

    I had to book a punk into jail that was "stinking" to high heaven. Strip....water hose in Sally Port....change to jail clothes and settle down for the night. Kentucky.

    Had to segretate and wash his clothes before bonding him out. Funny.

    Well, the officer could have called the sanitaion Dept and got them to send a truck out to "haul off the garbage".

    Not exactly. Within the confines of your home, you have no duty whatsoever to retreat since your home is already considered your "retreat".

    Even outside of your home, the duty to retreat is not absolute. However, you would be generally correct there.
