Naturally, this happened in California:

A California man whom neighbors praised for scaring off burglars at a neighbor’s house by firing warning shots may face charges for discharging his gun.

[ . . . ]

The good neighbor called 911, according to the Kern County Sheriff’s Department, but law enforcement never arrived. An hour later, the burglar was back to pilfer more possessions. That’s when the man got his handgun and told the burglar to stop. When he didn’t, the man fired several warning shots. The burglar fled with his two accomplices, leaving behind money, a laptop, and other items.

But according to the local District Attorney’s office, the ending might not be so happy for the man who fired the shots. Attorneys are investigating whether to hit him with charges of negligently discharging a firearm.

Day after day, story after story about the abuses committed by prosecutors and cops. That’s why I know longer give a shit when I read that something happens to them. That goes for federal agents as well.
