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 Woman Shoots Larceny Suspect After He Tries To Hide In Her Office Building While Running From Cops

KNIGHTDALE, NC — A man was shot after allegedly stealing from a Walmart and trying to make a getaway in a building that housed multiple businesses.

He ran into a lone woman, and he was shot. Although someone committing larceny rarely escalates things to where a shooting is justified, this may just prove the exception.

As WRAL reports:

Authorities were called to a Walmart at 7106 Knightdale Boulevard on for a reported larceny at about 6 p.m. when the suspect fled from the store on foot.

Officers chased the man, identified as Deandre Branch, 24, of Clayton, into an office building at 7048 Knightdale Boulevard. Once there, Branch forced his way inside the two-story building, which houses multiple businesses, and encountered a lone employee inside the building. Police said they are unsure what type of exchange took place between Branch and the woman, but he sustained a single gunshot wound as a result of the encounter.

“The suspect encountered a lone female that was working inside the building. The suspect, in the course of that encounter, was shot,” said Knightale Police Chief Lawrence Capps. Capps said officers were not close enough to Branch at the time of the shooting to witness the encounter.

Branch was taken to WakeMed for treatment of life-threatening injuries. Police said that the woman has been cooperative with the investigation, but her name is being withheld.

It’s hard to know what to do when a criminal — but not necessarily a deadly threat — comes barreling at you.

It’s happened to me twice, and both times while I was under the age to be carrying concealed.

I wasn’t touched once, and I got knocked flat on my back the second time.

You never know what a cornered thief might do.

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.

postheadericon Homeowner Tries Reason But Intruder Wants Violence — Careful What You Wish For

SEMINOLE COUNTY, FLORIDA — One homeowner was forced to defend himself when a young man charged at him from the bushes. Thankfully, he was armed.

According to WESH 2 News, the homeowner detected an intruder trying to break into his home late at night. He armed himself and went out to confront the suspect. The intruder retreated to a thick bush on his front lawn. Not wanting to take chances, the homeowner fired once and warned the intruder to come out.

The intruder thought this must be his opportunity to act. Fight or flight. He chose fight. He chose wrong.

“I heard a couple big booms and didn’t know what it was, and my dogs started barking,” said Hamrick. “I came out on the porch and saw a young man in the road. An old gentleman I know who lives across the street said, ‘Please call the cops. Call the cops.’”

The homeowner says that the intruder tried to charge him from beneath the concealment of the bushes. He shot him repeatedly in the legs, neutralizing the threat. When a neighbor came out, he saw the homeowner standing over the suspect, holding him at gunpoint.

Seminole County Sheriff’s Office arrived and took the suspect to a hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

No charges have been filed against the homeowner.

The suspect has not been identified.

In the neighbor’s account to WESH 2 News, he says he has lived in that neighborhood for thirty years and this is the first time he’s run into this type of activity. As someone who covers a lot of these stories, let me tell you that’s a very common sentiment.

For those who have lived in an area for a long time, this fresh wave of new crime may come as a surprise. The best way to solve it is by making your community a hard target to hit. If a neighborhood gets a reputation for being tough on crime, you can expect criminals to be less than enthusiastic about planning their next heist there.

Defend your neighborhood from thugs. Carry at home, carry everywhere.

postheadericon Truck Owner Tries To Stop Car Thief, Gets Knife Pulled On Him — Has A Gun

YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO — When a man saw a car thief attempting to break into his truck, he did what most people would instinctively do when they see their property being wrongfully taken: stop the thief. The thief had other plans.

According to WFMJ, the car thief allegedly pulled a knife on the owner of the vehicle. But this owner doesn’t want to be a victim. He drew his handgun and shot the thief. The criminal ran — as they are wont to do — but he didn’t make it far. Police picked him up farther on down the street with a head injury.

The car thief lived and will likely face charges. The property owner didn’t suffer any injuries whatsoever and maintained his property.

Wow, win-win.

The point of carrying a firearm isn’t to kill people — it’s to protect life and, at worst case scenario, neutralize a threat. The gun owner neutralized the threat. He shot him when he saw that the thief was not going to back down from trying to take his property.

He didn’t follow it up or chase after the thief. The thief retreated. Good enough. Now, it is apparent the thief did suffer a pretty grievous wound but it’s unknown whether this was due to a gunshot or something else.

In either case, this guy handled the situation correctly. It’s his property and someone doesn’t have the right to walk up and take it. Heck, he even tried to de-escalate the conflict by trying to stop the thief.

It was the thief’s mistake to draw a knife.

Carry everyday, neutralize the threat.
