postheadericon Burglar Tells Woman To Be Quiet, She Pulls Out Something Loud

SPARTANBURG, SOUTH CAROLINA — A man is sitting (uncomfortably) in jail with a gunshot wound to his rear end after being shot by a woman whose home he had just broken into.

As you can see, it didn’t end well for him.

Samuel Jeter, 42, is facing first-degree burglary charges and is being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center. He was found unresponsive by law Spartanburg Police officers who followed a trail of blood to the backyard of Katrina Walker, according to multiple reports.

Police responded to the call of a shooting at 12:35 a.m., on Thursday, where they found a woman crying on the front porch and another holding a 9 mm firearm, according to Fox Carolina.

Walker told the Spartanburg Herald-Journal that it was just after midnight when her 24-year-old daughter spotted a man in the bathroom holding a finger to his mouth, signaling her to be quiet. The 24-year-old instead started to scream, and when Walker came running to find out what was happening, the burglar tackled Walker.

The burglar wanted money, but that’s not what he got. The 24-year-old grabbed her gun and started firing. He was shot and found unresponsive by police in a neighbor’s yard.

While the young woman did fire as the suspect was fleeing, it doesn’t seem that she will be facing any charges. While it’s not recommended to shoot at a fleeing suspect, this incident has taken one criminal off the streets. For now.

This story highlights something that we stress so often on our site; carry at home, because you never know when you’ll need it. In this case, the suspect was waiting in the bathroom. Sometimes, it’s just simply too late. Having your firearm on your person is a great way to gain some sort of advantage over the bad guy.

postheadericon Homeowner Pulls Gun On Robbery Suspect: How Far Do You Follow A Suspect?

AUSTIN, TEXAS — How far would you go to recover what’s yours? One homeowner took control of a home invasion after discovering his home had been broken into. The couple awoke when dogs started barking but by the time the man retrieved his gun to go inspect, the suspect was already fleeing.

According to KEYE TV, the Austin homeowner found the suspect just outside his backyard. The man was attempting to enter a Chrysler Cruiser when he was confronted. He said he was just coming from a neighbor’s home but with a shotgun levelled at him, he attempted to flee. His passenger’s side window got a motivating buttstroke from the homeowner’s gun and shattered. Taking precisely zero chances, the man fled the scene.

Upon assessing the situation, the homeowner discovered that a drill had been taken from the back of his truck, a pink iPod Nano was also stolen alongside a 65 inch TV from out of the living room.

He later recovered the TV further on down the street. According to a police affadavit, he also discovered a knife that wasn’t his in the backyard — so the perpetrator came armed but wisely decided to drop the weapon once he knew he was being pursued.

Wise move. In the game of rock, paper, knife, shotgun, knife doesn’t beat shotgun.

Police tracked down the home invader to his home where he, of course, denied any involvement. Police bought that for all about two microseconds before putting the man under arrest.

Take home? Don’t screw up in Texas. Really.

The second take-away that we’d like to talk about is pursuing a suspect in a home invasion or really any crime. In Texas, Stand Your Ground and Castle Doctrine both strictly apply and can be extended to encompass simply witnessing a violent felony taking place.

Because the man was believed to be armed and used forced entry into another home, deadly force is perfectly reasonable in challenging him. However, he had departed by the time the homeowner became aware of his transgression.

In Texas, for the most part, the homeowner is perfectly fine in his actions. However, be warned, some home invaders are a lot nastier than others and pursuing them outside can turn into a very violent scenario quickly.

In general, we recommend that once you know you’re secure and your house is relatively secure (sans break-in), sit tight, call the police, and report any details that can help identify the person or persons who authored this ordeal.

But, we also want to ask — how far would you go to pursue someone who broke into your home?

For the discussion, we’d like to elucidate that not all states view self-defense the same way once you go from defensive operations to a pursuit. Once you step outside your property, the firmness of the law begins to erode quickly.

In this particular case, we don’t think the homeowner did anything wrong. We’ve reported on other cases, though, where the homeowner goes to inspect outside and gets ambushed or even gets stuck in a close quarters struggle for survival.

Neither of those scenarios sit well for us.

Safety and security first. Justice will follow.

But maybe we’re looking at it all wrong. You tell us your thoughts in the comments section below.

postheadericon “I Don’t Think You’re Going To Get That Money Today”: Salon Employee Pulls Gun On Would-Be Robber

DAYTON, OHIO — One salon owner wasn’t willing to give up her hard earned money without a fight. That’s the story coming out of Dayton after an attempted robbery was stopped by one woman with a gun. Dayton police are alleging that the robber in question may have been responsible for a string of other robberies in the nearby area. However, his string of crime definitely got stopped cold in its tracks.

According to NBC 4 (WCMH), the suspect entered the salon and pretended to want to purchase a ring. When one of the store owners went to ring him up, he demanded all her money.

“As soon as [my girlfriend] opened the drawer he said, ‘I don’t want any trouble, just give me all the money,’” Hoblit said. “At that point my girlfriend’s instincts kicked in and we had a pistol underneath and she grabbed the pistol, pointed it right at his face and said, ‘I don’t think you’re going to get that money today.’”

It’s a situation that small business owners are faced with all too regularly: your money or your well being. Both are valuable. But for many business owners, they can’t afford to lose their money every single time some thug decides to knock them off. That’s why they’re increasingly relying upon their own method of protection: arming up.

“She was really upset,” Hoblit said. “But she’s not going to give up our money. This is our season. We’re a small family business. This is what we live off of and she’s not going to give that up.”

The robber managed to get away but between several other corroborating reports from other previously hit establishments, a general description of the man and the vehicle he used to escape in has been released. Dayton police are hot on his trail. In the meantime, staying responsibly armed and carrying every day — especially into your own business — is essential.
