    Can you? Yeah, sure you can. You'll most likely be sharing a cell with the thief afterwards though, and he will probably sue you too.

    Unfortunately lawyers use a little tactic of going for your assets. Just shoot the mofo with real load feed to the hogs lol

    In Michigan you can use a fire arm to defend human life only. Not property ( pets and livestock are property).

    I think that is pretty much the case everywhere. I can't say I agree with it but it is the law and I can see times it is the right thing and others that a bullet better serves humanity. I mean just for example, some teenager steals gas vrs a crack addict stealing a mans tools he uses for his livelihood. Or a farmer getting cattle rustled etc.

    When you see someone stealing your property (outside your home) all you can do is be a good witness for the police. Pictures, video helps. You cannot threaten someone with a firearm unless there is imminent threat to life or sexual assault. Inside your home all bets are off, but you probably are still spending the night in jail if you shoot someone.

    I have not come to grips with the current court sentiment that If I cause some perp bodily injury that I am the perp. Ain't right in my book. Some how they all seem to magically change in to perfect angels. I have an acquaintance that is in court right now due to some less than adequate individual ( cought red handed by police including DNA) that has become said angel. The aquaintance was not home at the time.
