Thief Clutches Fresh Bullet Wound, Tells Homeowner, 'Sorry, Sorry' ..
Homeowner: "Don't move bitch.
Well he didn't say bitch, but:
James Frye, a 30-year-old would-be burglar, thought he’d make a quick buck when he kicked open the back door to a house at 1:45 a.m. last Friday. Unfortunately for the robber, the home was occupied by Wallace Turner, his wife, his five-year-old daughter, and his gun. That is what you call a lethal combination, as dangerous as a can of gasoline and a match.The perp had to lay there in pain, a LOT of pain until the cops came.
When he heard the crash, Turner said he grabbed his gun and ran downstairs to investigate. You might think that waking up in the middle of the night to an obvious home invasion would terrify a lot of people, but Turner told WISHTV news that he wasn’t about to back down. “He wasn’t getting past me,” he said firmly. “My wife and daughter were behind me.”
Turner confronted the robber, and that’s when Frye made his second biggest mistake of the night: he lunged forward at Turner[...]
The robber learned his lesson – and quickly – when Turner shot twice, striking Frye in the leg. The burglar attempted to flee and made it into the back yard before collapsing.
Turner followed suit and held the robber at gunpoint while his wife phoned police.
Turner reported that the burglar repeatedly said “Sorry,” but Turner’s stone-cold response was “Don’t move.” ...
I love happy endings.
