Homeowner with Gun & Female Ex-Boxer with Attitude Stop Burglary

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Three burglary suspects were caught after being interrupted by a gun-firing Florida homeowner, helped by a neighbor who is an ex-boxer neighbor, police say.


Ira Roberts of Oak Hill said he fired a shot into the ground after he and his wife spotted what appeared to be several people trying to break into a small residence attached to their main home Tuesday afternoon, WESH-TV, Orlando, reported."


The homeowner said: Legally you can`t shoot them when they`re running away. So I pumped one into the ground.

If the burglars had broken into his home he would have been legally and morally justified in blowing them away to Kingdom Come. It is incumbent upon a homeowner to pepper a burglar full of holes to ensure that he never breaks into another home again.

When a neighbor, Beverly Rose, who is a former ex-boxer heard all the commotion she sprang into action and tackled one of the fleeing suspects.

It was the homeowner`s gunshot and not the assistance of the ex-boxer that prompted the bad guys to flee like trembling schoolgirls. If a 99-year-old ex-Tiddlywinks champion had come to the rescue she would have made as much of an impact as the ex-boxer. I can`t stress enough how critical it is for homeowners to have firearms to protect their property and their lives.

The cops apprehended all the scumbags, and charged them with burglary of an occupied dwelling and theft.
