    CRIME
    KNIFE-WIELDING HOME INTRUDER BREAKS INTO WRONG HOME, GREETED BY .40 CAL HANDGUN
    Posted on November 27, 2012 at 11:52pm by Jason Howerton


    A homeowner in Grand Prairie, Texas shot a knife-wielding home intruder after the suspect shattered a side window to gain entry into the home, KXAS-TV reports.

    The homeowner, who has not been identified, was reportedly on the phone with 911 operators when he shot 21-year-old Gilberto Banderas. The shooting occurred at around 2:30 p.m. after the sound of breaking glass prompted the homeowner to get his .40 caliber handgun.

    Try counting to 90 when someone is coming at you with a knife... I would imagine it would feel like an eternity.

    Things could have been much worse for this home owner had they not been armed.

    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    Scary. Glad the homeowner is ok. Sounds like he did everything right to me.

    He would've met the same fate breaking into my place. I would use a G23 to administer said .40 cal medicine.

    A double or triple tap might have worked a little better.

    Why do you say that? It sounds like a single .40 shot to the stomach was enough to stop the threat..

    I wonder if he actually knew the guy, or he just happened to live close by. That would be a more interesting scenario if you were being robbed by someone you know.

    Results would probably be the same, just a more interesting conversation while waiting for police. And then how would the neighborhood react to you, having killed one of their neighbors?

    Note to self: A minute-thirty and still didn't get there in time to stop a potential murder. Nice response time too by the way. Can't say as that would be the case where I live.

    What really gets me is how the great state of Texas can make laws stating that if you break into someone's home, they have the right to KILL you and any threat you may bring to the table and people still insist on doing it. What is wrong with people? And then, he'll probably do the same thing when he gets out of jail. This really makes me question whether or not humans are the smartest thing around. Even lab rats can take to some learning.

    Lab rats don't pack heat! But yeah, most criminals aren't real smart.

    On the phone with dispatch when his neighbor breaks the window and enters, with a knife.

    Yep, sounds like he did everything right. Bravo Zulu.
