    I don't see any evidence that the homeowner "required" a search warrant.

    That sounds more like an Everett procedure thing to me.

    Have to love sites that cripple a browser.

    I'm able to get to both links just fine using Firefox v9.0.1 on a Mac.

    I live in the area where this happened.
    #1 Don't ever, under any circumstances believe anything you read in the "Everett herald" It's owned by the Wa. Post and they have a history of printing garbage.
    #2 The cops will get a search warrant if they can, it will clear up any confusion that might come up later as to weather the home owner gave permission to search.
    But, watch this case closely, the prosecutor up here in Snohomish county has a history of charging victims in self defense cases.

    I'd like to read about that.

    Do you have any citations for it?

    They don't talk about the cases much in the local news. A few weeks ago a homeowner, 60+ years old (very near where this incident happened) captured a 20 something year old thief stealing his outboard. The crook fought and died during the citizens arrest. "Charges are pending". So far just a threat.
    There are several other cases which will never be public knowledge because the bad guy wasn't killed. Most of them are reduced to misdemeanor charges (simple assault, unlawful display, things like that). I really think there's a pattern up here that really scares me.

    There's no such thing as a "citizen's arrest" in Washington.

    I take it from your response that there's no citations to read.

    Redcap, funny. However, note that I'm a tech guy who has had enough of giving free time to MSFT for buggy software. I kicked over to Mac's when Microsoft released Vista, and I've been happy since then.

    Well, you can call it whatever you want. The victim arrested the suspect and held him until LEO showed up. Suspect croaked during the struggle. I don't believe "citations" issued for misdemeanor charges are available for public view.

    I see.

    In this context, "citation" means a supporting document, and one "cites" it to support ones claim.

    Well how about we send someone over to the complainer's house to break in with a hammer while their children are present?
    Maybe break their leg or arm so they can be somewhat handicap when this happens?

    Why should I have to flee my house? What kind of BS teaching have these people had?

    You have left your house and your protection from the elements (and there are some elements this time of year) to stand outside and freeze while the intruder is inside keeping warm and eating your food and drinking your Maker's Mark.
    How is this even close to reasonable?
    IT IS MY EFFING HOUSE THAT I BOUGHT TO KEEP MYSELF SAFE AND WARM

    I AM NOT LEAVING,you will be made to leave ,with force if necessary.

    Mi casa es tu casa?

    If I invite you in
