postheadericon Woman Is Shot After Forcing Herself Into Home

LEXINGTON, KY — A woman in her twenties was shot while attempting to break into the home of a woman in her forties — a total stranger.

The early morning scuffle was a bit of a statistical anomaly.

As WKYT reports:

Police say it happened around 4:45 a.m. at a home on Talisman Road, in the Garden Springs neighborhood off Lane Allen Road. Officials say a woman in her 40s was home alone when a woman in her 20s came banging on her door, eventually breaking through a window. Police say the homeowner fired a shot at the intruder.

The woman was taken to UK Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, and will likely be charged with breaking and entering. Police believe the home was randomly targeted.

Now, as some of the more regular readers here (or on any other news site) can tell you, it’s really not that common for women to commit crimes of this nature, especially alone.

There was a time where I wasn’t sure how much of that discrepancy was perception as opposed to an honest-to-goodness difference in number of arrests.

I looked up some statistics on the issue to see what was what, and I was stunned.

Although the information I’m about to share is from a 2012 review by the FBI, I don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t believe that the information is at least pretty close to today.

Women are arrested far less often than men. From that, we can pretty safely assume that women also commit less crime.

Of the 9.5 million people arrested in 2012, the FBI reports, only 2.5 million were women.

That’s less than a third.

And for the particular crime of burglary, the contrast is even more stark. Approximately 184,000 men were arrested for burglary, while just over 36,000 women were arrested for the same.

That’s about 16.4 percent women arrested for committing that offense.

Finding an incident where a woman defended herself from another woman breaking into her home and no one seems to have known each other is pretty darn remarkable.

postheadericon Woman Shoots Teen In Head After He And Others Breaks Into Her Home

HOUSTON, TEXAS — A teenager who broke into a woman’s house was shot in the head by that woman, and is now in critical condition but expected to survive.

The incident played out as follows, and other teens are thought to have been involved;

The woman said she was home alone when she heard someone breaking into her home. A relative told Eyewitness News reporter Pooja Lodhia that the teens were hiding behind the victim’s couch when one of them jumped up. That’s when she shot the suspect in the head.

What these teens were up to is anyone’s guess, but they sure did pick the wrong house to enter uninvited.

As for the friends of the shot teen, let’s hope that they are charged with whatever crimes are coming their way. From the article, it is unclear whether the others involved were caught or if they made a run for it after losing a member of their thug team.

Armed at home? It’s always a smart thing. Your firearm should never be too far away and ideally, if you’re awake, should be on your person. Things can happen in an instant, and there’s no telling how quickly you’ll need to access your firearm.

postheadericon Man Forces Himself Into Woman’s Car With Knife, But She Has A Surprise Waiting For Him

MOLINE, ILLINOIS — No one wants to be faced with an armed criminal, especially one armed with a knife who just forced his way into your vehicle.

But that incident was stopped because the woman who was the intended victim was armed and ready to defend herself.

Local media reports;

During a struggle, the woman’s arm was cut, the statement said.  The armed man then forced her to drive him to a rural area of Rock Island County.

Once they stopped, the victim – who had a concealed carry permit – was able to get to her firearm, according to Griffin’s statement.  The armed man then ran off and the victim drove herself to the hospital, where police were then called.

Police were able to locate 61-year-old Floyd R. May, who was charged with numerous crimes stemming from the failed attempt.

May looks pretty sad in his mug shot above, and that’s probably because he knows that he was beat by an armed citizen who refused to be his victim.

Having your firearm close by and within easy reach inside your vehicle can sometimes be a tricky thing, but it’s important to have the plan in place before something like this happens. It’s fortunate that this woman was able to retrieve her firearm in time to get May to back off.

This woman, at some point in her life, made the choice to get her concealed carry permit. It was a wise one indeed, and we’re grateful that this incident turned out the way it did.

Here’s to armed citizens everywhere, and a reminder to criminals that we’re ready.

postheadericon Father And Son Show No Restraint, Fire On Vehicle That Crashed Into Their Fence

If you want to see knee-jerk reactions, look no further than this father-son duo who decided to open fire on a vehicle that had crashed in their yard. The driver was uninjured, but retreated as quickly as he could to avoid being shot.

Local news tells us how things went down;

Mike Sanderson told police he was sitting on the couch watching television when he heard an engine revving outside. After looking out to see the truck in his yard, Mike Sanderson grabbed his gun, a .22-caliber pistol, and went outside, according to court documents.

The truck was still running, so Mike Sanderson approached, pointed his gun at the vehicle and told the driver to shut off the engine, according to court documents. When the driver started to back up, Mike Sanderson shot the vehicle’s front tire in an attempt to flatten it. As the driver continued to back up, Mike Sanderson shot a second time, this time taking aim at the vehicle’s rear tire.

Mike Sanderson then dove to the ground after hearing gunshots coming from behind him. Soon, he realized that his son had grabbed a gun and started shooting several times as the truck was leaving, according to court documents.

During an interview with police, the son stated that he wasn’t quite sure why he was firing on the vehicle.

Nice answer.

He said that he was sleeping when he heard the commotion outside. He grabbed his gun and went out, then emptied his magazine in the direction of the vehicle. He told police that he was scared and just started firing.

The driver was located by police and shared his side of the story;

[Adam] Smith told police he had been working two jobs and fell asleep behind the wheel, causing him to crash into the Sanderson’s yard. After waking up and realizing he had just crashed, he told police he saw the residence’s door fly open and a man walking toward the crash while shooting.

“I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” Smith recalled yelling at the man. “I’ll fix your fence!”

But when the man wouldn’t stop shooting, Smith said he drove away and later ditched his truck near the boat ramp because the vehicle’s drivetrain was damaged from the crash and he assumed that the men who were shooting at him weren’t “done with him yet.”

Regardless of how things went down, it seems that this father –and definitely the son– took things too far when reacting to this situation. The father may have had cause to fire if he felt his life was threatened, such as the driver trying to run him over. I’m not saying that happened, but it’d give credit to shooting at the vehicle.

The son, however, fired shots into the dark without having a single piece of knowledge of what was actually happening. That’s irresponsible beyond comprehension, and everyone in this story is lucky that the driver wasn’t injured or killed.

Both father and son are in jail, hopefully thinking about how things could have been handled better.

Police later arrested Mike Sanderson on suspicion of unlawful use of a weapon, menacing and first-degree attempted assault and is being held in lieu of $ 156,250 bail. Dillen Sanderson was arrested on suspicion of unlawful use of a weapon and first-degree attempted assault and is being held in lieu of $ 150,000 bail.

That’s a bad day for everyone.

postheadericon Ex-Boyfriend Tries Breaking Into Apartment, Ex-Girlfriend Has Other Plans

When an ex simply doesn’t get it, things could turn from bad to worse in an instant. In this case, it seems as though this woman’s ex-boyfriend was trying to break into her apartment. Well, she wasn’t having any of that.

Local news reports;

Henry Johnson was treated at a local hospital after his ex-girlfriend shot him as he allegedly broke into her home.

Pensacola Police Department spokesman Mike Wood said the woman was inside her home at Pensacola Village Apartments on East Fairfield Drive at about 5:30 a.m. when Johnson broke through the front door.

The woman shot Johnson once in the leg, and police arrived soon after, according to PPD. Police questioned Johnson soon after, and Wood said the female won’t face any charges for the incident.

As a result, Johnson is behind bars without bail, and let’s hope he stays there for a long time. I can’t see any viable reason to let this guy go, as he’s an obvious threat to at least one person in this world.

And if a restraining order is placed if he’s let out, that should do a whole lot of good. Luckily, this woman was armed –and remains armed– to fend off against people like Johnson who just can’t take a hint.

It’s a bad situation to be in, but choosing to own and use a firearm for self-defense is such an important one, and it does indeed save lives each and every day.

Had this man successfully entered the apartment, who knows what would have happened to his intended victim. Love can be a scary thing, and it can bring out the worst in people. It’s a good day when we don’t see that ‘worst’ come out, simply because it never has the chance.

Exit, stage right, armed citizen who refuses to be a victim.

postheadericon Man Fires Gun Into Ground As He’s Attacked By Two Dogs, Successfully Scaring Them Off

WYANDOTTE, MI — A man shot his firearm into the ground to frighten off two dogs who were savagely attacking him.

The News Herald reports that the man actually had gone to his neighbors house — the neighbor who owned the dogs who would later attack him — to warn them that their dogs had gotten out.

“(The victim) had gone across to his neighbor’s house to inform them the dogs were loose,” said Inspector Brian Zalewski according to The News Herald.

“That’s when the dogs grabbed a hold of him and knocked him to the ground. He received injuries to his arms, legs, back and the back of his head, as he was trying to shield his face.”

Police came and saw the man and the dogs in the driveway, but the responding officer decided not to shoot — the mauling victim was close enough that the officer was worried about hitting him accidentally.

Fortunately for the victim, he had a concealed carry permit.

Hoping not to harm the animals, but instead to drive them away, he fired a shot into the ground, which did succeed in keeping them from finishing them off. However, it took a taser and professional animal controllers to get them away.

The victim is reported to have been released from the hospital.

Although we are grateful that the victim was made safe and that the dogs are in custody, a piece of advice — it’s hard, but if I was being threatened by animals on a deadly level, I’d shoot the dogs and eliminate the threat.

postheadericon Entitled Burglar Barges Into Home, Gets Shot, Cries “Daddy!”

LAKE WORTH, FL — In a very confusing turn of events, a homeless woman was found to be in the middle of events that resulted in one man shot and another one stabbed, according to the Palm Beach Post.

That woman reportedly called her friend early this month and said that she’d been punched by a man by the name of Gary Steven White outside of a rental community managed by his father. White’s father claimed that his son and the homeless woman were arguing about her alleged drug use near the rental community.

After the call the homeless woman made, things devolved quickly.

According to the Palm Beach Post:

“Moments after the call, the woman’s friend heard a noise outside his home on North M Street, just west of North Federal Highway.

“The man opened his door and saw two men outside the fence. The younger man, the 47-year-old White, entered the home, despite the resident’s orders to stay outside.

“The resident shot White in the abdomen. White screamed for his “daddy,” records state.

“‘Daddy, he shot me,’ White reportedly yelled.

“His father came running. The older White and the resident struggled over the gun, the resident said, and eventually the resident threw down the firearm.

“The resident felt a pain in his back. He then realized he was being stabbed, the police report said.

“The father grabbed his son, put him in the car then picked up the gun. The elder White told police he did so no one else would be shot.

“He drove nearly three miles south to his home near Lantana Road and Dixie Highway and called 911.”

Both White and the resident were taken to different hospitals, and White will be facing charges of attempted homicide and burglary with assault, according to the Palm Beach Post.

What a nightmare story.
