This letter is re: Property owner who wounded suspected thief facing lawsuit article published in the Advocate on Sept. 25.
Why is this man allowed to sue someone defending his property?
Our laws better get real and get some bite into them. Crime is getting out of control.
If you choose to be a criminal, as far as I’m concerned, you forfeit your rights. Too bad Ryan Watson was injured and maybe in pain, discomfort, fatigue, anxiety. Maybe he’ll be in so much discomfort that he won’t try to rob anyone again. Edouard Maurice should counter-sue for the anxiety and mental anguish he’s had to suffer.
Let’s stop rewarding criminals.
