Man Jailed for Protecting His Property

The debate rages on over a Sacramento man who shot and wounded a man trying to break into his car. Some say that human life should not be put in jeopardy in order to protect property. Another solution might just be to keep your hands off other people's crap. Doesn't seem too hard to understand...

A third view: if you have the opportunity to stop someome from stealing your stuff by use of deadly force, but refrain under pain of law, and the authorities are unsuccessful in recovering your stuff, the state should pay for your stuff. That seems fair to me: the state gets to protect life, and you get paid the value of your losses. Win win.
