Eugene Johnson was away when burglars first struck his home,
trashing it and stealing money. But he was home less than two weeks
later, when his wife heard someone kick in the back door. Johnson,
who spent nearly three years in a North Korean P.O.W. camp, quickly
got his pistol and intervened. The burglar said, "Don't move, I have
a gun," Johnson recalls. "I said, Buddy, I've got a gun, too, and
it's [aimed] right on you. Things got quiet then." Police say the
suspect had fled. "The home owner acted appropriately," said
District Attorney David Freed." Criminals who break into occupied
homes assume the risk of being shot by the home owners."
