I tend to agree with this, althought there are certain variables involved for me. If it's a couple of these little punk kids in my neighborhood who enjoy just breaking in and stealing and trshing peoples' houses, I'd probably issue a "stand down" order after I've acquired a safe shooting position.
If it was an adult, they're going down right then and there; no warning.
