    I WAS DEADLY!

    Listen to this guy I love his spirit and attitude, he casually walked down his hallway and fired two shots leaving one intruder in critical condition, while the other fled.

    Nice of the news station to put his Social Security number on their broadcast, the name of his kids, and other personal information. I think he should sue.

    That was great! In no way shape or form would I ever feel bad for the intruder getting shot. If you don't want to get killed quit breaking into other people's houses!

    That was his service number. The Army didn't use Social Security numbers as service numbers back then. I think that came in the '70s. I know I left the Navy & 14 years later went in the Army & they had changed to SS numbers since then.

    Congrats to this old vet for 'thinning the dirtbag herd'...

    Interesting note, the old guy still has his gun...they didn't take it away from him as part of the investigation...that's a good thing!

    Not to mention that it was 1 digit too short to be a SS#.

    Anyone catch the

    "If they have enough nerve to break into someone home while they're home, then they have enough nerve to kill you, ya see?"

    That's what people don't understand about these criminals, there is no bargaining with them. They surely would have attacked the old man and at his age, I don't think it would take much to kill him.

    That's one house that won't get broken into again.
