I think these laws are confusing, theft at night for example, you might have to look up when "night" exists (30 minutes after sunset and 30 minutes before sunrise). Someone steals my truck and it may not be recoverable by any other means. The problem is that these issues can end up with a jury deciding them as nothing is straight forward. I am still surprised that the homeowner in this case did not face any legal action. Just depends on local DA or police. I personally would have no regrets if he would have killed the bad guy but that's me.
