    GOOD: Another Home Invader Loses the Fight - Walhalla, SC

    WALHALLA — The Oconee County Sheriff’s Department incident report lists Donnie Murphy as the victim, but it appears the suspect arrested for the burglary of Murphy’s house might have gotten the worst end of the deal.

    Sheriff’s deputies responded Sunday afternoon to a burglary call at 163 Murphy Drive in Walhalla and learned that Murphy had shot a burglar in the buttocks. Kirby Alan Ridley was later brought into custody on burglary charges at a Ranger Road home in Walhalla and sent to Oconee Medical Center for treatment of his wound.

    The report summary states Murphy told officers he was in the bathroom when he heard a noise near his kitchen. He then walked out of the bathroom, retrieved his .22 pistol from his closet, and discovered a man standing in front of his fireplace. After telling the burglar to stop, the subject allegedly reached into his pocket as if to get a gun or weapon and began walking back towards the kitchen, at which point Murphy shot him.

    Deputies located Kirby, called an ambulance and followed him to Oconee Medical Center.

    It was the second arrest connected to a burglary deputies made during the weekend. Ricky Dean Wilson was brought into custody in connection with a 2005 burglary of $16,000 worth of items such as scrap metal, radian tubes and heating elements from the carport of the Timken U.S. Corporation location at 430 Torrington Road in West Union. Three others; Richard Uren, Joseph Smith and James Hensley have already been arrested for the burglaries, which occurred during June and July of 2005
    Good on the media for listing the homeowner as the victim, but also bad on the media for printing the victim's name and adress.

    Good on the victim for getting it done, but he needs to step up to a larger caliber pistol.

    The burglar got "the worst end of the deal" in the rear end!--- Nice!
    Homeowner as the victim----double Nice!
    Everything else-- .22?, shot placement?, Med. center instead of morgue---Not so much!

    Man, the dirtbags are coming out of the woodwork. Times are getting tougher and although it's not the tough times turning people into dirtbags, it is bringing out what's already their character.

    Stay armed...congrats on thinning out the population...stay safe!

    heh, heh - retsupt...

    My .40 HP will slow 'em down long enough for the rest of the clip, and I won't have to worry about a .22 bouncing around and coming right back at me.

    An other problem here is our failed justice system will have this BG out on the streets in no time. He knows your name and where you live and he's pissed that you caused him to go away and put a cap in his ass. Sleep Tight!!
    Large cal.+ shot placement = morgue

    BG to ER doc: I have a PITA.

    LEO to BG: You ARE a PITA.

    Just think, if it had been a .45 the guy wouldn't have a butt to sit on now!

    While a .22 isn't the best choice for HD/SD, a bit more time at the range would make it much more affective.
