BAD: 4 Men Beaten in Home Invasion
4 Men Beaten In Home Invasion Robbery
Four men are recovering after being held at gunpoint and beaten while robbers ransacked their home.
At around 11:30 Tuesday night, a man who lives at 1503 East Harvard Avenue was outside smoking when three men in dark hoodies and masks approached him, pulled a gun and forced him inside, according to police.
That man, along with three other men in the home were allegedly attacked and robbed by the intruders.
“The suspects gathered all four of the victims made 'em lay down on the floor in the kitchen and then began to beat them with their weapons,” said Lt. Fred Louis, Salt Lake City Police Department.
Two of the suspects allegedly went through the house grabbing laptops, cell phones, and game systems.
Police say the suspects then broke out a window to use for their escape.

Why would they break out a window to escape when they've already come through an open door?? Must be that dropping out of the 6th grade thing. Those guys are lucky to be alive and it also just goes to show...smoking is dangerous!! boom, boom...piiishh!!

We all read these things regularly...quite a few of them actually. I carry a weapon with me throughout the house. If it's not ON my person, then it's just a quick reach away.
If I hear my front door being kicked in?...no questions will be asked, and the lead BG is getting immediately 'drilled'...those behind him can decide for themselves their continued entry.
My wife and I were just talking about this again this morning. We agreed that someone coming into the house without an invite will be considered an immediate and dangerous threat...and that threat will be met with a more than adequate response.
Stay armed...at home...stay safe!

I'll print this story out for my wife... she always has a sigh or roll of the eyes when she puts her hand on my 1911 as if I should put it away at home. SHEESH!
