    Lol! Yup, it could have been a slide presentation showing the guy; see here's your head, and here's your head after my twelve gauge pump gets done with it.

    Now which would you rather have happen.

    While this is a very good way of doing things, the likelyhood of these two "yoots" changing their ways will be minimal. Maybe they will learn, most likely not. The way attitudes are towards criminal activity these days, those who participate in it will most likey do it again because they don't care and don't respect laws.

    We had a guy come home where I live and held the "alleged" burglar at gunpoint who was a repeat offender. Apparently he never learned a lesson by going to jail or any of that. They just don't seem to learn once they wander down that path to crime.

    We can hope however that these two do learn something from the kindess of this victim. They should, because perhaps the next time they steal from someone and get caught by the armed owner it will be their last time.

    Reminds me of Pulp Fiction.

    Not every "intruder" is as fortunate.

    I'm guessing that the thief got a lot better treatment there than he would have in Texas.

    Maybe the little punk will be scared straight but most likely not.

    If the justice system in this country had any value he would have three years in prison to think about the error of his ways if this is his first conviction. But in reality if it is his first conviction he will get probation and most likely be breaking into someone else's garage in a couple of weeks.

    Since the justice system won't take care of these punks the only real remedy is a dirt nap when they break into the wrong place.
