Butler County Prosecutor WRONG on Castle Doctrine

If this is what the Republican Party of Butler County thinks is an okay position for the Prosecutor to have, then maybe it is a good thing I got out. This is NOT okay:
“While your home is and should be respected as your castle, the use of deadly force must actually be used in self-defense and not just because someone has unlawfully entered your castle.”
Uh, Mike, that's kind of the WHOLE POINT of the Castle Doctrine law. If someone illegally enters your home and threatens you, you have the right to shoot them. Just being there is a threat.
