postheadericon Homeowner’s Son Shoots Three Teen Home Invasion Suspects With AR-15

WAGONER COUNTY, OKLAHOMA — When a group of three teen thugs invaded a home, they likely did not expect what they got — the homeowner’s son, armed and ready, with an AR-15.

According to authorities at the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office, three people, all wearing masks, broke into the home via the back door, reports WPXI.

Their plan was to burglarize the home, but that was not to be.

Two of the suspects were 17, and one was 18, according to WPXI. It is unfortunate that they had to lose their lives at such a young age, but one of them was armed with a knife, and another was armed with brass knuckles.

There was no choice.

A fourth suspect was arrested — 21-year-old Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez was booked on three complaints of first-degree murder and three complaints of first-degree burglary. It is believed that she was to be the getaway driver… if anyone had gotten away.

Rodriguez was in the wrong state to pull getaway driver. as WPXI reports:

“In Oklahoma, those believed to be committing a felony that results in a death can face murder charges, even if they did not actually kill anyone.”

Yikes.

Now, we may disagree on whether or not the woman deserves charges for murder, but there’s no question that these intruders got what they deserved — and she did help with that.

postheadericon Young Man With A History Of Violence, Hopped Up On Drugs, Tries To Grab Homeowner’s Gun — Guess The Ending Of This Story

SLIDELL, LOUISIANA — A 22-year-old hopped up on cold medicine began acting irate and bashing a man’s truck in his driveway. When the homeowner came out, he told the man to leave. Instead of leaving, Seth Flores tried to grab the man’s gun. He was shot once in the neck and five more times center of mass. By the time police arrived, he was dead.

According to WWLTV 4 News, the homeowner will face no charges.

Prior to the incident, Flores showed up at his ex-girlfriend’s house and harassed her and her mother before they called 911. He fled the scene and then showed up at the homeowner’s property.

The mother of the ex-girlfriend lamented Flores’ death, saying that he shouldn’t have been shot.

“A life cannot be replaced,” she said. “I believe that he shouldn’t have been shot. He (Hicks) should have just shut the door and called the cops.”

Sorry, hun. That’s not how real life works. This isn’t a Lifetime Channel or Oxygen Network television movie. When a man grabs for another man’s gun, that’s a threat against his life.

What if Flores, in an altered state of mind and already acting aggressively, were to have taken hold of that handgun?

Does anyone think it would have ended well for the homeowner?

The homeowner did what he had to do to protect himself. Flores, under the influence of drugs, decided to present himself as a clear and imminent threat on another man’s property.

The minor details of why he was angry are irrelevant. That’s the thing about emotions: you’re free to have them. No one can tell you what to feel. But the second a person acts upon those emotions and does so in an aggressive, dangerous way that affects other people’s lives, it becomes their problem.

Fun facts about Seth Flores: he has a criminal history of violent behavior. This isn’t a man who makes rational decisions when he gets angry. Whether or not the homeowner knew that background or not is outside the purview of this article. The point is: there’s a man with a history of violence banging on the front door and breaking property. When he’s asked to leave, Flores tries to grab the homeowner’s gun.

Lover’s quarrel? Case of mistaken identity? Who knows? But more importantly, after Flores decided to threaten a man on his own property — those details stop mattering.

As for the gun owner, he’ll have to deal with the emotional ramifications of his actions for the rest of his life. It’s doubtful he would ever want to take another man’s life. He probably also didn’t want a madman smashing up his parked vehicle and trying to kill him.

As for the police that showed up, they likely would have had to deal with Flores’ violent behavior. After all, one of his previous charges is assaulting a police officer. Poor decision making skills and a penchant for assault… What’s not to love?

Defend your home, your property, and yourself as you see fit within the context of the law. Don’t take chances with violent people. That is all.
