    Gastonia teen attacks burglar

    [The burglary attempt happened Wednesday night at a home on Edgefield Avenue.]
    The burglary attempt happened Wednesday night at a home on Edgefield Avenue.
    GASTONIA, N.C. -- A quick-thinking teenager thwarted a would-be burglary Wednesday night.

    Police say the 16-year-old boy heard glass break in a rear room of his Edgefield Avenue home. When he went to investigate, he observed a white man climbing in through the window and kicked him in the face.

    The suspect, identified as 49-year-old Albert Adams, ran from the scene and was picked up by police a few blocks from the home. Adams was bleeding from his face and abdomen and police say his face appeared to have a shoe print on the right side.

    Adams was arrested and charged with first-degree burglary.

    but... you're not supposed to resist... just let the guy have what he wants... resisting is only likely to anger the attacker...

    A good, solid boot to the face is quite a discouragement, huh :) Good guy goes home, bad guy is in jail, with a little something to remember the event with... Sounds good to me!
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    I think if given the opportunity, leaving a footprint would be very gratifying..

    Even if you were legally covered taking a shot to prevent forced entry, I would def go for the kick - makes me laugh thinking about it!

    Kudos to the kid for quick thinking and quick action. Looks his brain decided on the fight or flight rather quickly if he got to him before the guy even got the rest of the way through the window.
