Florida Homeowners Almost as Heavily Armed as Those in Texas. Oh, and Neighbors Are Shocked Scared

Armed homeowners usually results in wounded home invaders. Police: Homeowner shoots man who tried to break in.

“When we arrived [at 1:45 AM], we met with the homeowner. He stated that several individuals tried to break into his house and he shot at them,” said Sgt. Craig Waldrup

A car showed up at a local hospital to drop off one person with multiple gunshot wounds from a rifle. The other folks in the car were detained by police. “All suspects are in custody at this time,” Waldrup said.

And the neighbors? The media always seem to be able to find a nervous and scared neighbor.

“I heard pow, pow, pow, pow, pow. It was five shots,” said one woman who didn’t want to be identified. “I said, ‘Oh my god, what happened?’ I couldn’t move.”

She won’t be handing out Halloween candy, because you know, bad people.

Self-defense is a Human-right.

How Should an 82-year-old Defend Himself, If Not with a Firearm?

Without the means of self-defense, namely a loaded firearm close at hand, the small will be at the mercy of the large; the old and the infirm will be at the mercy of the young and the violent. 82-year-old man shoots intruder in Vicksburg.

“She tried to get in, but I wouldn’t let her in. ‘I’m so and so. I brought you some meals’, and I said put them down on the porch. She wouldn’t. She left and came back again for something else,” Wilson said.

Wilson retrieved a .38 caliber handgun from underneath his pillow and fired tree times.

The 42-year-old woman was shot in the leg. She was taken to hospital and will be arrested when she gets out.

Self-defense is Human Right

If you break into houses, you will eventually find an armed homeowner. Don’t be surprised at the results. Update: Alleged Intruder Killed By Homeowner.

Police say Harvey approached the front door of the home when the homeowner heard a noise around 2:30 a.m. and came out to check. That homeowner confronted the suspect and the two got into a scuffle. The homeowner then opened fire, striking Harvey in the chest.

Lee Harvey, the guy who got shot, ran a few blocks and collapsed. He died at a local hospital.

Overall, it has been a bad couple of months for bad guys in and around Omaha.

  • On August 26th, Jorge Ramirez allegedly tried to break into a home near 35th & Cuming and was shot by the homeowner. Ramirez survived.
  • On September 2nd, police say Jody Kudlacz came into a house at 70th and Farnam and was held at gunpoint by the homeowner until officers arrived.
  • On September 8th, 48-year-old Darrell W. Miller was shot and killed after kicking in the door of Larry Rohatsch’s Omaha home. The county attorney said there would be no charges because the shooting death was justified.
  • On September 24th, a resident held an intruder at knifepoint and that suspect got away.
  • On October 18th, Tyrell Dalia was shot and killed when police say he broke into a home near East 19th Avenue and Main in Bellevue. Kendrik Dalia and Jordan Thompson were later arrested for robbery related to that incident. Police are still searching for one more suspect in that case.

Off-duty Chicago Cop Breaks 89-yr-old’s Hip, Sentenced to 3 years

20 year veteran of Chicago PD, curses at store employees because he can’t pump gas. Breaks hip of 89-year-old man who asks him to stop cursing in public. I would describe someone like this as a thug. Chicago Cop Sentenced To Three Years In Prison For Breaking 89-Year-Old's Hip When Asked To Stop Cursing In Public.

After the old man asked one of “Chicago’s Finest” to stop cursing in public, this upstanding “boy in blue” showed what a professional he is (and what a professional organization he belonged to) by pushing an 89-year-old man to the ground. The cop then continued yelling at the store staff. His license plate was recorded when he left the store.

The 89-year-old victim wound up suffering a broken hip and torn rotator cuff and was forced to spend an “extended period of time” in a rehabilitation center following corrective surgery.

LAPD Beating of Suspect Caught on Video

They still haven’t figured out that cameras are EVERYWHERE. LAPD officer accused of beating, kicking restrained suspect in the head – LA Times.

After a short foot pursuit, two officers caught up to Alford. Footage from the security camera on a nearby building captured Alford voluntarily laying down on the street and putting his hands behind his back, according to several people who viewed the recording. The officers restrained Alford, who made no movements and did not resist, the sources said.

Seconds later, a patrol car pulled up and a uniformed officer, who the sources described as “heavyset” or “very large,” rushed from the driver’s side, according to sources. The officer moved quickly over to Alford, who was still held on the ground by the other officers, and immediately stomped or kicked, the sources said.

Once the officers realized that there was a security camera, they entered the business. No one knows why, but the suspicion is to destroy the video evidence, because cops hate cameras.

Several minutes after Alford is put in the patrol car, they appear to notice the security camera on the building wall. The officer who kicked Alford knocked on the door of the building, which houses a small garment factory, until someone opened the door and he disappeared inside.
