When is a home invasion NOT a home invasion?

What are you talking about?

You ask me, thinking I have gone stark raving mad!

Well it is a perfectly legitimate question!

So are these home invaders?

Ants?......

No! That's a lady bug!

Cockroaches?.....

That's a frog!

Flies?.....

Ohhhh..... That doesn't even come close!

Now I have a headache!

What about screaming running kids?....

Barking jumping dogs?....

Supremely intelligent cats?....

Ok... good I think you get the picture...

These are everyday creatures and happenings that don't come under the classification of home invasions.

Unfortunately on a serious note, this one does.....

So What is a 'Home Invasion?'

There seems to be no clear definition of 'home invasion.'

The reference ranges from the general; any incident where a person is at home and another person enters unlawfully.

To the highly specific; an armed robbery in a home with intent to confront the home owner.

In general, it appears to be understood as an incident involving unlawful entry into a house with intent to commit a crime, when the occupants are at home.

Be prepared! It doesn't have to cost you more than a cup of coffee and piece of cake!
