There is a reason homeowners can rarely afford to dispense mercy on an overnight invader: Criminal intruders tend to be the dangerous type. What homeowners don’t expect are law enforcers and prosecutors going after them for ­defending themselves and their loved ones.

Queens resident Joel Christopher Paul faced a home-intruder threat in the early hours of July 30, 2017. The 27-year-old was home in Springfield Gardens with his mother, brother and sister when someone ­attempted to break in. The intruder was Shamel Shauvo, 26, who had traveled north from Maryland after being named a suspect in a shooting there 10 days earlier.
So...
The prosecutor is charging a homeowner because defended his home against an intruder?
Over thirty years ago I heard of a case where a women keep retreating until she was in her basement before shooting the intruder. She was prosecuted because there was a door in her basement that lead outside. The cesspool has only gotten deeper.
