Cause of Death: Terminal stupidity.

Zendo Deb serves up more tasty smoked goblin.
After after being confronted, Jones came down from the ladder and began to advance on the homeowner, according to his account to officers. Gullatt fired two shots into the ground as a warning, but when Jones kept advancing he was shot at close range in the chest, with the bullet apparently passing all the way through Jones' body.
When the man with the rifle says "stop", listening to him might be a good idea.

Goblin: "You ain't got the balls to do it!"

Homeowner: "Well, they ain't M855 Ball, but they seem so cycle OK......

This happened in Mayberry! Where was Andy? "Yeah, Barn, when ole Clyde gets tanked up, he keeps tryin' to move back in to the family farm..."

Interesting test case for Castle doctrine, since it happened out in the moat, not in the keep.

And thanks for being awake. When some of us get up at 4:45 to milk the elk herd, some fresh snark hits the spot. Remember journalists? Some of them stayed up all night.

There is something odd about this whole thing. It occured maybe 30 minute north of me. It seems that Mr. Goblin used to live at that house and had broken in there in the past. Add to that the Sheriff's office is being very careful NOT to say this was self defense other than the facts will be looked at... I need to call some folks up the road.
