Guess he'll be putting a phone on the shopping list.
I hate to be accused of judging a book by it's cover, but the mugshots scream "bad guy".

An armed elderly Reno homeowner on Friday shot and wounded two of three burglars in an incident where he held one injured suspect captive during an eight-hour stand-off.
The homeowner did not have a telephone to report the incident and had to gather his strength to force Marin outside and have a neighbor call police about noon on Friday, detectives said

Or if he were in England he would be just another helpless victim. Score one for the common man and the 2nd Ammendment! :)

Oh no, no, no! In England they would be looking for ways to prosecute the homeowner. How dare he assault those poor, misunderstood, under-educated, unemployed, hungry waifs, who were just looking for some food, and maybe shelter, when that vicious bigot shot them in the back without any provocation, while they were begging him for a few crumbs of sustenance that he could have very well provided since he is a wealthy homeowner!
Your honor, I rest my case....

"Marin and Ruiz were booked into the Washoe County Jail on suspicion of burglary and robbery with a deadly weapon, which carries a sentencing enhancement because the victim was over 60"

This closing statement bothers me. Can't put my finger on why but it does. The sentencs would be lesser if the victim was under 60?! Sorry that doesn't seem right. Sentencing enhancement....hurrrummph.
