The man locks himself in his truck lol. I don't see where anyone was in any danger but the thief lol.
That sure was an unlucky thief!? I would say he was lucky (smart) enough to stay in his truck and wait for the police to arrive to rescue him from the home owner! Good outcome.
I think that thief had one of those os...,er, oh darn, moments.
"And he said, ‘unlucky.’ Just unlucky.” (He forgot "Stupid") (Texas burglary suspect calls 911 on homeowner with gun | Fox News)
This was obviously staged! In the world according to Bob Costas only bad things happen when people own/use weapons.
Lance was lucky. The thirteen year old sounds disappointed he didn't get to shoot him.
I would call it "not afraid" to shoot the idiot. If I had to pick a 13 year old to have my back, he'd be one of them. Looks like Dad raised him right and felt pretty confident that he could depend on his boy. :congrats:
I was just going to listen to the report again as I didn't catch the note of disappointment in the 13 year olds voice. The link no longer works! Strange it should disappear so quickly......
Link worked for me,Kid sounds like he was just being honest about not being afraid to pull the trigger if the guy tried to get out.This is Texas Trespass during the night,not to mention Burglary can get you shot,the Burglar had every right to be scared poopless,maybe he needs to change careers
I'd say he was very "lucky" considering the circumstances.
OK, this is funny. I just posted my comments on the "Costas" thread after I watched the interview on youtube. I commented that crime has gone down with so many Americans owning firearms, and now I came to this thread and watched the video talking about a burglar locking himself in his truck for safety from the homeowner (and his stepson) who had a gun! This is just evidence of what I was saying. Ya gotta love it.
Actually, he was very 'lucky' to not get shot.
The local news said the Burglar had intended to kill everyone inside if he was discovered. Too bad they Homeowner didn't know that before hand. I'm sure he could have ended this young budding criminals career real quick had he known.
We got some real winner here in Texas. Too bad they havn't learned that there are other States more suited to their line of work.
How embarrassing for the burglar. :embarassed:
