Home owner confronting possible thief?

Post by RustyCrayon »

There have been so many stories in the news about property theft and break & enters lately. Wonder if this home owner was simply confronting a would be thief?

A likely scenario.

Tho it sounds like he did more than just "confront" this individual.

Not sure what that 19 year old was doing in the driveway but I am sure it didn't warrant a beating with a baseball bat within an inch of his life...maybe a call to 911 would have been the best course of action when he saw someone in the driveway. Now the teen will likely die and the homeowner who did the beating will likely serve time in jail, violence solves everything doesn't it. I feel really bad for that kid and his family, so young, there was just no reason to resort to that kind of violence.


Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said the incident occurred at about 4:50 a.m. when the Holt Street resident looked out his window and saw a male standing in his driveway.

Shelkie said the resident went outside to confront the unwanted visitor and assaulted the man with a weapon.

So far, police have not determined what Simpson was doing in the Holt Street driveway.

“We’re not sure what the victim was doing. He hasn’t been able to verbalize anything,” Shelkie said.

Jessie Simpson, a 19-year-old from Savona remained in a coma on Monday after being beaten, reportedly with a baseball bat, on Holt Street in Brocklehurst in the early-morning hours of Sunday. Kristopher Teichrieb, 39, who police say is a homeowner on the street, has been charged with attempted murder. Teichrieb will appear in court on Thursday.

Little doubt that Teichrieb is now appreciating that it would have been much wiser for him to have called the RCMP to report a suspicious male than to arm himself with a bat and confront the youth himself. He accomplished nothing other than to [at this point] attempt to murder the young man and face that serious offense in court. He has likely robbed his own family of their future through his actions.

If I found someone in my yard at 430 am I'd beat him about the knees with the bat and go back inside.

on the news it said he chased the kid down the street (off his property) then started beating him..

he already had the kid off his property...he could have subdued him and called the cops, but no, he had to beat him to death...

sounds like this man has some serious mental and anger issues....that earned him a manslaughter charge or first degree murder ?????

So no link? That would be a courtesy. Doesn't matter anyway. One cannot use force even to protect property unless your own life is threatened. Even then one would be charged and then go through the court process.

Oh I have not doubt what transpired. Why is anyone is someone else's driveway in the middle of the night? Sucks to be the one trying to protect their property.

A bit of an overreaction to say the least. If someone tried getting inside my house with wife or kids around i wouldnt feel too bad taking a baseball bat to them. But chasing someone down and beating them to death is brutal.

I'd say that wasn't the intent but having so many attempts by thieves, one gets a little jaded.
