Farmer who shot thief pleads to negligence

Beginning of Story Content

A central Alberta farmer who shot a man stealing his ATV more than two years ago will serve 90 days in jail.

Brian Knight learned his sentence in a Red Deer courtroom Friday after pleading guilty to criminal negligence in January.

Justice Monica Bast rejected the defence's argument that the shooting was impulsive, saying she believed Knight was aware to some degree what he was doing.
 
Knight chased and used a shot gun to fire at a man who was stealing Knight's ATV from his farm near Tees, Alta.
 
In the early morning of March 26, 2009, Knight found three men in his farmyard.
 
He jumped out of bed and gave chase clad in boxer shorts and rubber boots to a man riding Knight's all-terrain vehicle.
 
Knight rammed the ATV with his car and, when the man abondoned the machine and began running, Knight pulled out a shotgun, firing two rounds at him, police said.
 
The man was eventually caught after Knight called friends and relatives to help in the search, police said.

Must send message, says Crown

Crown prosecutor Jason Snider recommended Knight be sent to jail for 90 days to be served intermittently.
 
Snider told Justice Bast the shooting was a vigilante act and the court must send a message that behavior of this sort is wrong.
 
However Knight's lawyer, Balfour Der, argued the shooting was not a vigilante act, but a spontaneous reaction.
 
Knight did not shoot to the man to kill or hurt him, but merely wanted to scare him, Der said.
 Knight's sentence will be served on weekends beginning after the Thanksgiving weekend.

And the guy who stole the ATV probably got 100 hours community service. Remember guys, people stealing your shit in the middle of the night have rights. Just let them take it and then hope the RCMP can find the time to arrest them and get your property back...laff

Yes, and hope they don't hurt themselves in the process, as you will be held liable for the hazards (like snow on the roof, icy sidewalks, etc). What a joke.

All I can say is get a job, get a life, and respect other people (and their property).

Brian Knight is a hero in my world.  Our justice system sees him as a criminal.  >:(
The Crown says:

"Must send message, says Crown.
Crown prosecutor Jason Snider recommended Knight be sent to jail for 90 days to be served intermittently.
 Snider told Justice Bast the shooting was a vigilante act and the court must send a message that behavior of this sort is wrong."


I wish the "Crown" would send a message to thieves.

Conclusion:  Thieves, be aware that there are some of us out there that are not bleeding heart liberals that will actually defend our property with force.  Thank you , Brian Knight, for reinforcing this.

PS:  I should post the video of me beating the crap out of the scum in my back yard that tried breaking into my house. There was no talking, or waiting for police to arrive, just Boom-Boom-out go the lights!  All caught on my garage security cam.  I guess what I did was wrong too...oh well.... ;D
We have a greed with which we have agreed...
Society, you're a crazy breed.
I hope you're not lonely without me.

LOL that would involve them getting off their azzes to look for some one instead of riding around looking for petty crimes

He may serve his 90 days but he stood up for himself with these thiefs and will always know that for the rest of his life. "Way to go Brian." (I know some of his family.)
Axeman that is a great idea with the security cam. Obviously you were having a problem then had it installed.
