After five break-ins at his Venice, Florida, home in fewer than six months, Jack Foster had had enough. Foster, a retired policeman, was awakened early one morning in yet another invasion of his privacy and soon found himself scuffling with a scofflaw. Foster grabbed a gun and fired three shots at the intruder, seriously wounding him. "You have the inalienable right to defend yourself, up to and including using deadly force when you feel your life or the life of a family member is threatened," said Sarasota County Sheriff's Lt. Bill Stookey of the incident.
