    Elderly Woman Mugged while on her toilet

    Hi Everybody!

    I know there's been countless discussions on this board regarding carrying in the bathroom while either in the shower or on the commode.

    This true incident happened a few hours from my homebase.

    Hope the link works - sorry in advance if it doesn't.

    Just thought I'd share that it CAN happen no matter when & where - be prepared!!

    I can't help but wonder if it was a #1 or a #2. Actually... I don't want to know.

    Sounds like he was lucky that she didn't do any "ninja stuff" to him.

    Even in the bathroom, a firearm is nearby. If this lady had had a gun when she heard movement (which obviously she didn't), she could have blasted him when he opened the door.
    This guy will be out on the street doing the same thing again in a matter of time...dead offenders can't do that.

    True Ret, and he's likely to not be so nice to the next person he robs. But of course the next person he robs, may not just sit there on the lid, but might fill him full of holes.

    I guess even on your own commode, you have to be ready. Shew, can't even take a crap in peace!

    I handled an incident of a DUI that crashed into a house. As the vehicle was coming to a stop inside the house it knocked over the commode and the homeowner sitting on it. Not a happy homeowner.

    She's very lucky, most break in's where the resident is home (Home Invasion's) do not end well for the resident, unless they are ready to defend themselves.

    Ya know... I think about my 83 yo mom.... If that happened to her, I would track that BG down and beat him, with my bare hands, to within an inch of his life !

    I try to always have my weapon on me while awake and it's at my right hand while I sleep but I gotta say, having dogs is a HUGE advantage, especially for advance warning!

    She may not have heard him over the noise of the other "movement".

    Sorry, just couldn't resist.
