Homeowners cannot legally shoot someone who is trespassing on their property or breaking into a vehicle.

Brookhaven Police Chief Kenneth Collins made the statement during Tuesday’s regular meeting of the City’s Board of Aldermen.

The question has come up multiple times in recent weeks as property owners are frustrated over burglary and attempted burglaries.

In addition to reporting to law enforcement, several Brookhaven residents have taken to social media to warn their neighbors and air their frustrations over the issue.

Parties often add limitation-of-liability clauses to their agreements. These types of clauses can purport to limit a party’s claims or damages or both.  Damage-limitation clauses can take many different forms.

Mexico remains the main international provider of marijuana for the United States, but this has greatly diminished since 2013, forcing certain criminal groups to adapt and look for other funds.

Identifying the criminals that are living abroad

The UN is a multilateral body with its main aim to assure another world war does not occur for future generations. Over the years international diplomacy has developed conventions, acts, bills, rules, and much more literature in regards to the benefit of humanity.
