MILWAUKEE -- A Janesville man who admitted breaking into a home is suing the homeowner who shot him.
Kurt Prochaska, 39, was on probation last fall when he admitted he broke in to a home and was shot by the homeowner, but that's not stopping him from going after cash through the courts.
Late last year, the Rainiero family awoke to find Prochaska in their home. Michael Rainiero, a doctor, ordered Prochaska to leave. He didn't and was shot in the back.
Nearly a year later, Rainiero's attorney said it's far from over because Prochaska is suing him from beind bars, saying the doctor didn't need to shoot him.
"What the doctor wants is this whole ordeal to be ended and done with," Rainiero's attorney said

As one poster a few posts back said, you don't know what level of violence is about to happen. You only know once it happens. By then, it is too late, so any intelligent person knows that preventive measures must be taken.
If a guy jumps out of the bushes, grabs some woman by the hair, punches her and drags her into the bushes... is she supposed to wait and see what is next before shooting him with the gun she managed to get out of her bag or just shoot him dead if possible? Should she aim for the leg so as to not kill him since maybe all he wanted to do was rob her with no rape?
In the article above... the doctor did the smart thing that guaranteed his families safety. He shot the guy and it was over... he didn't have to follow the guy around the house as he took some jewelry and left. Could you imagine not being able to shoot just because the guy turned around to continue going around in your house? What if he made a break for the stairs and your little kids were up there, he gets up there and kills them all because you hesitated due to fear of being prosecuted by some idiot lawyer out to make money and a moronic judge that upholds criminals as victims.
I swear, this **** bugs me to no end.
