House invaded... Tied up his wife.... beat on him... all at knife point... But then he saw an opening... and took it... got the kitchen knife and started stabbing his attackers. Two "thuglets" injured one turned himself in...
It could be worse!
Shoulda' stuck a fork in them cause they're done....until they get back out on the streets that is.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
Home invading thugs like this are a menace to society and having them jailed until they are old and grey, if not shot during their crimes, is the only cure.OMO

Looks like a nice neighborhood. Im glad he was able to fight off these punks....
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
The justice system will fail in punishing these scumbags enough to do any good, they'll just do something more sinister when they get out in a few months.

Circumstances can present themselves in the ugliest situations. Apparently he kept his head enough to recognize it when it came 'round. Good for him and his family.But then he saw an opening... and took it.
Sadly, I'm sure the thugs'll use more duct tape next time.
Hooray for the homeowner! Too bad he didn't finish the job. They'll be back at it after 6 months or whatever the nice legal system throws at them. By the way, why aren't Al and Jesse all over this one? After all, weren't the BGs victims of profiling?
Looks like the husband should have used a bigger knife
As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper
See? People don't need guns to protect themselves. All they have to do is put up with a little duct tape, rope and hope for an opportunity to increase their odds of living up to 50/50 after about an hour or so. Happy all turned out with the good guys living though. Could have turned out better. Maybe next time, (now that it's already too late to prepare for the first time) he will have a 12 ga. waiting for them when they do their vengeance run.
Pain hurts though. Don't it dirtbags?

Crossman 760 BB/Pellet, Daisy Red Ryder, Crossman Wrist Rocket, 14 Steak Knives, 3 Fillet Knives, Rolling Pin-14", Various Hunting Knives, 2 Baseball Bats, 3 Big Dogs and a big American Flag flying in the yard. I have no firearms; Try the next house.
They'll be back, and smarter than ever... jail/prison... it's like high school/college for criminals, only every one of them gets a free 'scholarship'.
these kids are getting more and more agressive with every home invasion. this time a knife next time a gun
Too bad he and the wife didn't have guns....then there would be three less thugs in the world. Those types are a drain on society. I am sure someone is going to gritch, but it would be better if the three "teens" had been sent to meet their maker.
A woman must not depend on protection by men. A woman must learn to protect herself.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
Turn back to your own prey for mercy and compassion. Think it will last? ...More headlines to follow."He was lying on his back, on the ground, just crawling, saying 'help me, help me,"
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined." -Obligatory Founding Father Quote
I couldn't help but chuckle a bit when I read that last line above .... sounds like they were not expecting the owner to respond in the manner in which he did. Good Job though...... a good example of "fighting mentality". Sounds like the neighborhood is applauding him. Surprised though, no quotes of the parents saying " they are such good boys".Sheriff's officials say an hour into the ordeal, the homeowner turned the tables, grabbing a kitchen knife and stabbing two of the young men, both 16 year olds, who then ran from the house, waking neighbors in the process.
"Sounded like a female voice," says Manny Vega who lives nearby. "Might have been one of the assailants running in pain after having been stabbed."
