Man Arrested For Defending His Property

In Long Island, George Grier was arrested for firing an AK-47 into his lawn to deter approaching gang members who were threatening his life and that of his family.

“I went around and went into the house, ran upstairs and told my wife to call the police. I get the gun and I go outside and I come into the doorway and now, by this time, they are in the driveway, back here near the house. I tell them, you know, ‘Can you please leave?’ Grier said.

Grier said the five men dared him to use the gun; and that their shouts brought another larger group of gang members in front of his house.

“He starts threatening my family, my life. ‘Oh you’re dead. I’m gonna kill your family and your babies. You’re dead.’ So when he says that, 20 others guys come rushing around the corner. And so I fired four warning shots into the grass,” Grier said.

Grier was later arrested. John Lewis is Grier’s attorney.

“What he’s initially charged with – A D felony reckless endangerment – requires a depraved indifference to human life, creating a risk that someone’s going to die. Shooting into a lawn doesn’t create a risk of anybody dying,” Lewis said.

Grier said he knew the police use “Shotspotter” technology, and by firing the warning shots into the ground, police would arrive within minutes.

The real issue here is whether or not a man owns his property (Editor’s Note: or his wife & child’s very lives) and if he does, shouldn’t he be able to defend that property with deadly force if necessary? A man’s/woman’s home is his/her castle. They ought to be able to defend such by whatever means are reasonably necessary.

The article doesn’t state what happened to the gang after he fired the warning shots. My guess is they scattered pretty quick once they realized Grier was holding a loaded “peacemaker.”
