  • Security Kills Junkyard Burglar

    Maxton, SC:
    Robert Curtis Jacobs, a security guard at a junkyard, shot and killed Gregory Tyrell Butler after he caught the man breaking into a trailer at the site and was hit by the suspect with a flashlight. The Robeson County Sheriff's Office is saying they are not charging the security guard with a crime.

    This reminds me of the one guy who said, "You can't shoot a man for hitting you with a baseball bat." Obviously, in Robeson County, you can.

      Well said Nathan. A baseball bat or heavy flashlight can rearrange your grey matter can subsequent death. Fear for your life as a reasonably prudent man still stand tall before the bar.

        He'll probably get sued. Where are those junkyard dogs when you need 'um??

          Dead men can't sue. Since the shooting was declared as legally justified I don't see that happening from his existing family, if any, either.

            There's a difference between being held criminally liable and civilly liable. Ask O.J. Simpson.

              I can only speak of civil liability cases I've heard of. In many cases if a shooting was criminally justifiable and the suspect was not alive to testify, the possibility of a civil suit was diminished.
