SHERMAN, Tex. -- Police responded to a home invasion in Sherman in the 300 block of Laurel on Monday to find two victims beaten and bruised. The suspects remain at large Tuesday.

One victim says the intruders, one of which was her older brother, came in the front door with a dog chain and started swinging it at her and her husband, hitting them both several times.

She also says this all happened while her husband was holding their one-month-old baby.

The victim says she asked her older brother to leave last week, and she believes the intrusion was due to money her brother owes for rent.

The suspect has been identified. Police are still investigating this case.

    Ok, the victim KNOWS its her older brother, and NO ARRESTS HAVE BEEN MADE??!! Come on!!! If it takes so long to get justice, I believe you do have a right to protect yourself and if that means buying a gun and shooting the B*****d next time, THEN SO BE IT!!!! Your family might next survive the next attack, what do you think will happen then???

    Since the police have no legal obligation to protect the citizens of their respective communities, wouldn't it be prudent for the citizens to arm themselves and to get the proper training to defend themselves? I have friends who are LEO and they all do their best to protect the constituents but as everyone already knows you can't be in all the places needed at the same time.

    ME, the courts have ruled repeatedly, most notably in Warren v. D.C., that the police have no legal obligation to protect you. However, most departments go above and beyond in trying to protect. But, because most departments are grossly understaffed they struggle to simply respond to calls for service.

    It's a good thing for the intruders that the woman and man didn't have a gun handy. With all the news of intruders getting killed by homeowners, you'd think this wouldn't be happening as often.

    Could this be a reflection on our police force? Not pointing the finger here but who else is in charge of order and protection.
