David Correa draws our attention to an 'incident' in Oregon where a single-mom and her children came home to find a man hiding in her closet.  (See the link for details.)

She shot him dead.

SOME PEOPLE LIKE TO THINK that the only time you are justified in armed defense is when you KNOW your invader is armed and you KNOW that he intends to do harm.

Those people are a dying subspecies: they do not take into account the natural instincts of a Mother.

Lesson Learned: the female of the species is more deadly than the male.

But being in Oregon, she had better retain a lawyer, lest the family of her intruder/victim sue her for the death.

Y'know, since our state lacks the civil suit protections present in most "Castle Doctrine" states. We do have the criminal protections that assume that someone who forces themselves into a home uninvited means to do harm, and absolving the resident of criminal liability.

But there's still a civil liability that the intruder/victim's survivors can try to capitalize on.

Castle Doctrine? I don't need no stinkin' Castle Doctrine!
