    The government, its agencies and arms, has pretty much everything ass backwards.

    Glad I never moved to Colorado.

    The question that is not being asked is whether the victim fired his weapon as he was being run over by the attackers or were they already fleeing the scene. If it was after the incident, then the D.A, has a case. The "make my day" law is explicit when it uses phrases such as "he or another person "IS" in imminent danger of being killed or of receiving great bodily injury". Not "WAS".

    @aegis:
    The bigger question is why the homeowner has been charged with twelve felonies, and yet the illegal criminals nearly went free. (If someone comes on my property with intent to steal, they should expect some lead coming their way in short order.)

    I'm not from Colorado, but I would LOVE to be on the jury at this man's trial.

    We haven't been given the facts we need to evaluate this situation. If the shooter fired at the thieves as they going away from him, he could very well be guilty. If he was standing in front of their vehicle, and they were about to run him over, it looks much more like lawful self-defense. This case is a good example of why one who is forced to use a gun in self-defense should talk to counsel before saying ANYTHING to the police.
