911 Tells 80-Year-Old Woman To Put Gun Down During Home Invasion







” An 80-year-old Florida woman grabbed her gun and called 911 during a home invasion. While the burglars were breaking a window to her residence, the police dispatcher told her to “put the gun down.” Huh?

  As N.J. Logan was upstairs resting from recent hip replacement surgery in her Holmes Beach, Fla. home, she heard a racket coming from the main level, according to MyFoxTampaBay:

  I kept hearing a commotion, like there were people walking around down there. It is a little frightening. You know that you don’t have the security that you thought you had.

  Logan was all alone — her husband was playing bridge at a friend’s house. That’s when she took matters into her own hands. She grabbed her gun and dialed the police emergency number as she headed downstairs.”

Ohio Home Invasion



” Keith Dennis was walking home when he was approached by two men. One of the suspects held a knife to Dennis’ back and demanded money.

“I thought I was going to die, to tell you the truth, because the knife was 10 inches long,” said Dennis.

  The men followed him home.

  Dennis had a friend sleeping upstairs who sensed something was wrong. He came down and fired shots at the men.

“ Right when I seen them get to the door, I popped and then they took of running, and I chased the one down, and I shot two more times trying to catch him,” said David Tucker.”

Memphis Homeowner Shoots Burglar While Waiting For Police


Memphis Shooting




” A Memphis homeowner who came face to face with two suspected burglars during a home invasion last week put one in the hospital and sent the other fleeing, WREG reports.

  Police said the homeowner called 911 when he heard someone smashing the glass of a back room window, but before officers could arrive, the two suspects were already inside the home. However, little did the suspects know that the man was not only home, but armed as well.

  The homeowner shot at the intruders, hitting one, who was later found about a block away. The suspect was taken to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition.”

” Tiffany Thompson got her wish: Demetrius Murphy met the “Right Person” and he will not be playing the Knockout Game any more. Ever. St. Louis homeowner shot Murphy dead late last week during a burglary. And a whole lot of people in St. Louis feel relieved, if not safer. Murphy was a member of a group that is credited with making the Knockout Game a St. Louis tradition, then a national pasttime.

  The rules of the Knockout Game are simple: Begin with a bunch of black people. Anywhere from three to 30.

  You can play anywhere, but “vibrant and culturally mixed” neighborhoods are probably the best. That is where the victims are: Asians, “gays,” artists, yuppies, seniors , college students – people who won’t fight back. Over the last two years, hundreds of people around the country have become victims. Some say over 100 in St. Louis alone. Some died. Others, like Murphy’s victim Matt Quain, suffered broken bones in his face and jaw.

  Last week, four members of the national Championship Alabama football team were arrested after three played the game two times, and the fourth tried to use a debit card taken during the attacks. Many of these cases of black mob violence are documented in the book “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return racial violence and how the media ignore it.”


Good riddance .

Thanks To Bureaucracy, 91-Year-Old Man Who Shot Home Invader Can’t Get His Guns Back



” Jay Leone is a 91-year-old World War II veteran and former member of the sheriff’s air patrol who used his guns to level the playing field when Samuel Joseph Cutrufelli, a 30-year-old career criminal and meth user, broke into his house. Now that the trial is over, and Cutrufelli has been sentenced to 86 years in prison, Leone wants his guns back – but the Marin County authorities are dragging their feet.

Leone has been without his weapons for a year now. In early January 2012, Cutrufelli broke into Leone’s home, detained him at gunpoint, tied up his hands, and went looking for valuables. Leone managed to grab one of several valuable guns he owned. When Cutrufelli saw this, he shot Leone in the face. Leone, in turn, got off three shots, hitting Cutrufelli, who then fled. Both Leone and Cutrufelli called 911, with Leone reporting the burglary and Cutrufelli claiming he’d shot himself.”

Home Invasion – “Stay Alive”

West Knoxville man shoots suspect during home invasion

 Homeowner Opens Fire (911 Tapes)



  ” Most home invasion stories we come across tend to involve unsophisticated (read: stupid) criminals who take ham-fisted approaches and rely entirely on brute force. It’s rare that you come across criminals who employ genuine subterfuge. 

A trio of masked men in Miramar, Florida, used a strategy that you usually only see in the movies – they cut the power to a home and waited for the homeowner to exit the house. Admittedly, it was a clever plan – three grown men with the element of surprise against a nearly blind homeowner. What could possibly go wrong? 

The homeowner’s wife, for one. “Grab your gun,” the homeowner’s wife told her husband before he went outside to investigate. “Just in case.” 

So, the 55-year-old homeowner did just that, and it’s a good thing he did. The homeowner later reported that he immediately realized something was wrong when he saw that the other houses in the neighborhood hadn’t lost power. 

According to the police, the three men charged at the homeowner and attempted to bull rush their way into the house as soon as the man opened his front door. The man’s adult daughter, who was home at the time, recalled that her father pushed his wife into a nearby room and fell backwards, firing shots at the trio of men. 

You can listen to the daughter’s harrowing 911 call below. Be warned: things get a little bit tense about one-third of the way through. The caller begins to break down near the end of the clip. “

  ” While Army Sgt. Matthew Corrigan was sound asleep inside his Northwest D.C. home, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) was preparing to launch a full-scale invasion of his home. SWAT and explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) teams spent four hours readying the assault on the English basement apartment in the middle of the snowstorm of the century.

(This is part two of a four part series on Sgt. Corrigan’s case. Click here to read the first story.)

The police arrested the veteran of the Iraq war and searched his house without a warrant, not to protect the public from a terrorist or stop a crime in progress, but to rouse a sleeping man the police thought might have an unregistered gun in his home.”
