A California retiree believes he has a right to protect his home and belongings -- even if it means shooting dead a woman who tried to rob his house but claimed she was pregnant.
Tom Greer, 80, says he returned to his nice home in the affluent Bixby Knolls neighborhood in Long Beach to find a man and woman had broken in and were in the middle of a burglary. Greer says the couple tackled him to the ground. Thinking he was down, he says the alleged burglars started to go through his safe. In the meantime, he was able to get a hold of his .22-Caliber Smith & Wesson revolver and didn't take mercy on the woman, whom he said shouted, "Don't shoot me, I'm pregnant! I'm going to have a baby!"
