Viral Video: Paratrooper Beats Bejesus Out of Burglar! Amen!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Seattle veteran`s security cameras captured his confrontation with an intruder who wasn`t ready for a fight with a paratrooper.


Andrew Myers, a veteran paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne, said he and his girlfriend set up security cameras at their Seattle home after a man broke into their basement on Veterans Day and stole a shirt."


Myers believes the intruder was responsible for the previous break-in, and he wasn`t going to let him get away this time.
