The Elderly Can Fight Back Too

"72-year-old Jerry Duncan was asleep upstairs in his Lakeland Village,
Calif. home when he was awakened by a loud noise. After getting up
to investigate the sound, Duncan discovered that his power had been cut,
so he retrieved a flashlight and made his way downstairs.

Duncan noticed that an air conditioner had been pushed out of one
of the windows, leaving it open, so he retrieved a pistol he had kept
nearby and waited at the window.

After about five minutes, a criminal attempted to come through the window,
at which point Duncan fired, striking the man and causing him to flee.
The home invader only made it about 15 feet before collapsing dead.

In recalling the incident, Duncan explained, “All I was thinking about
was defending myself… I’m in no shape to fight anybody. I’m 72 years old.”

Well, yeah, Roger.
He was real close to his human body
while he remained inside of it. After it got killed,
during the crime, he probably abandoned it, but he was near it until then.

Ya know, Dave, this is like trying to talk to a lawyer, or something.

He was near death when he died. There's a certain logic there - I guess.
