The Good Guy... Charged With A Felony???

Quick summary: Joseph Hebert was going around breaking into houses, Dennis Flemming caught him in the act, shot his pistol into the ground and held him until police came. He then turned himself in to the police and was charged with a felony. No, you don't need to read that again, I wrote it correctly and you read it correctly. Dennis Flemming was charged with a felony for stopping a criminal.

The story can be read here:

Upon researching [wikipedia-ing] to see if New Hampshire has a Castle Law, it appears that they kind of sort of maybe do? I don't know. Legalese is too fucking convoluted for me to care. Last I checked our Second Amendment guaranteed us the right to bear arms which is all that matters to me. If you are a criminal and get caught in the act of doing criminal activity, fuck you. How hard is it for our police and law makers to figure out who the good guys are and who the bad guys are? Do we really need to debate this? The guy is a fucking career criminal who is lucky that it was Mr. Fleming who caught him and not me, because I'd have shot him in his criminal face.

I thank FSM every day that I live in a state where I don't have to worry about the legal repercussions of shooting someone who breaks in to my house. (An aside: I seem to recall something about duty to retreat being discussed a couple years ago, I have no idea if it passed and I don't care, I'll still shoot you.)
