Now THAT’S what I’m talking about!
The victims, a man and a woman who were in the house at the time of the intrusion, called police and reported a burglary in progress.
The three gunmen forced the man and the woman to the third level of the town house where the shooting occurred, Hernandez said.
Police did not release details of the how the shooting unfolded.
The gunmen, including the one who was shot in the head, jumped from the third floor window to escape.
If someone breaks into your house in a home invasion robbery, calling the police is a waste of precious seconds. Trying to hide is phenomenally dangerous. There’s nowhere to run. If you submit, there is no end to the risks you and your family face at the hands of the brazen attackers who certainly are predisposed to violence. There is only one responsible action — responsible to yourself, to anyone else in your house, and to your neighbors who may otherwise become the next victims of this violence. You must kill the attackers, and the best way to do that is with a loaded firearm in the hands of someone who knows how to use it.
I’m a little surprised that the dirtbags survived their attack, but they certainly got the message, and others who might have chosen to do the same thing will think twice now that they’ve got this wonderful mental image of someone with a head wound unassing themselves from a third story window as they flee in fear from the most powerful force on the face of this planet: an outraged and thoroughly pissed off American citizen with a gun. That’s a powerfully deterring picture.
Dumfries, you did us proud this week, but next time, use your 12 gauge. I recommend #4 buckshot. It tends to save us the cost of prosecuting criminals, especially when you aim for the head.
