TEEN CHARGED FOR DEFENDING HIS HOME FROM THE INTRUDERS
Juwan Alexander Plummer,19, has never been in trouble with the police. He was living his life and doing okay until earlier this month when he grabbed a gun to defend his mother and his 14-year-old brother from the robbers. Many will agree that he did a right thing, however, the court doesn`t because intruders were actually cops.
After the incident, Plummer was charged with two counts each of Intentional Discharge of a Firearm in a Building Causing Serious Injury, Intentional Discharge of a Firearm in a Building Causing Injury and Felonious Assault. Moreover, the man who was trying to protect his family from robbers was charged with four counts of Felony Firearm on April 16.
On April 16, police arrived at Plummer`s neighborhood after responding to several calls of burglaries in the area. Despite the fact that the break-ins were reported across the street, the police decided to check the Plummers` house as well.
Plummers didn`t see the police lights. They called the police to report the burglary and then grabbed a shotgun for defense. Plummer, who feared for the safety of his family fired a warning shot but hit one officer in the arm and the other one in the face.
It’s very unfortunate that a young man, who was trying to protect his family from robbers is facing decades behind bars. Plummer`s life is ruined just because he was protecting his family, just because he was doing a right thing. That was a reasonable act of self-defense and it’s not fair to charge the teen for this incident.
