They Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

They thought it was a good idea to break into an occupied home, where they found an armed homeowner. Broken Arrow homeowner reportedly shoots burglary suspect in leg

After shooting the guy who broke into his home at 4AM, he called 911.

When officers arrived, they encountered three people walking from the home into the front yard, at which point they were detained.

The guy who got shot was “bleeding profusely” from a leg wound. Cops applied a tourniquet and he was taken to a local hospital for surgery.

Self-defense is a human-right, and in Oklahoma it is your legal right (Thanks to the Make My Day Law).


The “How Dare You Live Without Me” Attitude Didn’t Work Out

He was the EX boyfriend, but he apparently had trouble dealing with that. Man Shot, Killed Breaking Into Tulsa Home Was Woman’s Ex-Boyfriend, Police Say

He had a history of stalking her. He sent her a picture of himself in front of her home on July 4th. Escalating to breaking into her home is not a good thing.

He threw a table through a sliding-glass door at 3 AM.

Police said she fired five times but hit the ex-boyfriend only once.

“He’s moving through the house because the rounds are going from here to here to here, and he was at the front door trying to leave when he collapsed,” Tulsa Police Sergeant Dave Walker said.

Because nothing says “I love you” like creepy stalker behavior and violence.

And people (me included) need to spend more time at the range. Though it does point up the problem with limiting the number of rounds at my disposal. (Adrenalin can screw up your ability to aim.)

“All indications is she was in her home doing what she was supposed to do and it was him doing something he wasn’t supposed to do that caused him to be dead,” Walker said.

An Epic Failure of the Victim Selection Process

His night didn’t turn out the way he planned. Chaotic 911 call details moment Oklahoma couple shoots intruder in the chest

So the couple who owns the home wake up at 3:30 AM to the sound of an intruder rummaging through their house. The woman loads her pistol and gives it to her “military trained” husband. (She had been practicing since a previous home invasion.) She then calls 911.

They said they told him to lay down but he refused. The woman called police and, on the 911 call, both can be heard ordering him to lay down.

Allery allegedly continued walking away from them, refusing to lay down, until he walked up the steps leading out of the sun room. There, he reached a door he couldn’t open while, below him, the couple continued to yell at him.

That’s when he turned around and, according to the affidavit, “began moving towards” the man with the gun. That’s when the homeowner shot Allery in the chest.

Oklahoma has a “Make My Day” law, so it is extremely unlikely that the homeowners will be charged. (They haven’t been.) The guy who got shot was taken to Oklahoma University Medical Center, and then he was taken to lockup.

She Stabber Her Daughter for Reading a Book

No word on what the book was. Mother who stabbed daughter, set house on fire, arrested

Investigators say a woman [Taheerah Ahmad] who allegedly bound and gagged her three daughters, stabbed the eldest repeatedly and set their house on fire told them she had become upset after observing two of her children reading a book.

This is just insane.

Another Family of a Dead Criminal Doesn’t Like Self-defense

JusticeThey thought it would be a good idea to break into a house. They were wrong. Grandfather of Oklahoma teen killed by homeowner in burglary says AR15 made for ‘unfair’ fight – Tribunist Daily

The homeowner who pulled the trigger has not been charged with any crimes because police say he acted in self-defense.

The consequences of violently invading someone’s house can be extreme. But then you shouldn’t be invading someone’s house.

Getaway driver, 21-year-old Elizabeth Rodriguez, was uninjured but later arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of second-degree burglary.

Police also say Rodriguez admitted to planning the burglary.

Self-defense is a human-right. And bitching about self-defense seems to be more and more common these days.

He Appears to Have Problems With Understanding the Prefix “Ex”

Not sure what he was trying to accomplish, but I’m pretty sure his day didn’t turn out as he planned. Suspect in break-in shot by ex-wife | Tulsa’s 24-Hour News, Weather and Traffic

He was trying to break into his ex-wife’s apartment. He has apparently be harassing her.

She shot him in the side.

No mention of a restraining order, or what he will be charged with. But I’m glad she realized that she needed a plan for her self-defense. (And the defense of her kids, who live with her.) Oklahoma has that wonderful “Make My Day” law, so the chances she will be charged with anything are slim.
