    Hey TunnelRat...
    I'm right down the road from you... in Anderson.

    We have had quite a few good stories recently, unfortunately there were plenty of bad ones along with it.

    I have heard folks start to refer to Spartanburg as Murderburg.

    I think SLED should make a CWP training and licensing trailer... "Coming to a city near you" Maybe put Spartanburg first on the list of stops.

    We need some more folks like Mr Easler.

    James Easler used his handgun to hold a burglary suspect until deputies arrived
    A man who deputies say burglarized a home got more than he bargained for when the gun-toting, tough-talking homeowner caught and held him until deputies showed up.
    Ken Easler, 73, said he went into his home on Jones Road before heading to the farmer’s market on Saturday morning when he heard someone inside the house.
    "I was taking produce to the market," he said. "I was going in the house to get something to drink."
    Easler said when he went into the house, he heard someone upstairs. He grabbed his gun and waited for the person to come downstairs.
    "I put the clip in and jacked one in the chamber, and when I did, he had already started down the steps. He sat down. He sat down and held onto the rail.
    "(He) started saying stuff like, 'I had to use the bathroom so bad. I had to use your bathroom. I was walking down the road and I had this big urge to use that bathroom.'"
    But Easler wasn’t having it.
    "I told him, you know, ‘You'd better shut up and don't make any sudden moves.’"
    Easler ushered him through the house at gunpoint.
    "I put him in the bathroom and I told him, I said, ‘If you close the door,’ I said, ‘I'm going to fill it full of bullet holes, so don't close the door.’
    "He was saying stuff like, 'I've never done anything like this before. If you let me go, I'll never do it again.’ He said, ‘I don't have anything. I didn't take anything.'
    Easler called 911.
    "I said, ‘We'll, I've got an intruder in my house and I've got him at gunpoint.’"
    He said the man then tried to get sympathy from him.
    "He started like hyper-ventilating. He said, 'I've got to have water -- my heart -- I've got to have water.'
    "At one point, he started faking a cry like a baby would cry. I said, ‘Shut up, that don't work either.' I said, 'You became a man when you came in my house.' and I said, ‘I don't want to hear no crying.'”

    Douglas Nickerson
    Deputies said when they arrived, they found Easler pointing his gun at a man, later identified as Douglas Nickerson, who was lying on the bathroom floor.
    Deputies said when they searched Nickerson, they found two rolls of dollar bills in his pocket. They put Nickerson in the back seat of the patrol car. They then asked Easler if he kept any cash in the house. Easler said he kept dollar bills in bundles of $50. The money was earned from sales at the farmer’s market.
    The money in Nickerson pocket was two bundles totaling $100. Nickerson was charged with residential burglary, unlawful entry and theft.
    Easler said he had never seen Nickerson before, and he has lived in the house since 1967.
    The 73-year-old said he wasn’t worried during his encounter with Nickerson.
    "I knew I had it under control because when I told him put his hands up, I told him, ‘Don't you take them down.’ I said, ‘If you do, I'm going to shoot you.’"



    Best line from this is... 'You became a man when you came in my house.' and I said, ‘I don't want to hear no crying.'”
    LMAO

    Now thats how its supposed to happen. The old man knew what he would do if the bad guy didn't comply and he kept his composure.

    Old guys rule. My grandpas eighty years old and he could still find a way to whip me if he wanted too.

    I would love to have a drink with this guy. I bet he has some good stories.

    The guy is lucky the old man didnt grab him. I delivered parts for an autoparts store for a few years. One of our customers dad was in his 80's and loved to shake my hand. I didnt want to be rude but man after 50+ years of milking cows even at 80 he could milk this young kid to the ground quickly. Old men are dangerous. My grandfather has told me several times "son Im 93 you think Im scared of prison"
