Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. — Proverbs 22:6
And part of that training should include “don’t break into other people’s homes.” Else you get your ass shot.
Austin police have charged 17-year-old Daniel Marquis Kinchion with 2nd degree felony burglary of a habitation after a homeowner shot him trying to break into his home.
Police say a juvenile and Kinchion broke out a screen and were trying to get into the home on North Colony Drive near Jamestown and 183 at noon on Sunday.
The homeowner fired through the glass, hitting Kinchion. Both suspects ran, but were taken into custody.
Police say the homeowner is not expected to face any charges.
“If someone unlawfully enters or attempts to enter, you can use force or deadly force,” says Michael Cargill of Central Texas Gun Works.
This young thug-wannabe is lucky to be alive. But he’ll have plenty of time to recuperate from his injuries…in prison. Hopefully his juvenile accomplice learned his lesson and this incident will scare him straight and convince him that breaking into the home of a Texan is a dangerous endeavor.
