This is why boosti should be armed when he confronts trespassers.
Other thoughts, if the landowners were armed they could have protected themselves and either shot this POS, ( where the Ca government & liberals would be going nuts about his rights being denied) or held him for police and the retired dentist would still be alive. Although, as it seems now a days, dentist's lives don't matter.

California police shoot and kill target of 2-week manhunt

California sheriff's deputies have shot and killed a man believed to be the target of a 2-week-long manhunt in the mountainous high desert terrain of Central California.

A man who matched the description of Benjamin Peter Ashley, 34, was struck by two deputies who tried to stop him on a road, Kern County sheriff's spokesman Ray Pruitt said.

He was shot after he brandished a gun, Pruitt said.

"We have not positively identified him, but all indications are it is the suspect we were looking for," Pruitt said.

Scores of law enforcement officials from various agencies have been searching a remote area of the state about 30 miles east of Bakersfield for Ashley. He's suspected of killing a retired dentist, taking three men hostage and wounding two deputies.

The crime spree began on July 28 when a gunman took three men hostage in the Twin Oaks area after they confronted him about squatting on their property. Authorities said the suspect held the men for more than an hour and threatened to kill them before they escaped.

Two days later, David Markiewitz, 64, was found dead in another cabin in Jawbone Canyon, about 10 miles away.

Two SWAT team members were shot and wounded by a shotgun-wielding man on Aug. 1 as they searched a mobile home in Kelso Valley for Ashley. One deputy was shot in both arms, and the other was grazed.

During the manhunt, authorities warned residents to stay inside and lock their doors and windows. Two elementary schools and a middle school were shut.

The 5-square-mile search area is dotted with unoccupied homes and trailers, outbuildings, abandoned mines and caves and other hiding places

boosti should just call the local LEO's and show them the pictures, tell them he spoke with the landscaper, and ask the LEO to speak with the homeowner. In the future I hope he does not venture outside his home without a firearm on his person. because like you said, you never know.
