    Never too old to get your just reward.

    This one happened on July 4 but I don't recall seeing it posted here yet.

    A 72-year-old home invader was DRT after being shot once. Folks just don't seem to learn that you can't go kicking in a door without taking the chance of being shot dead.

    I found the following additional report in looking for more information on the home invader:

    Intruder shot in Yulee home invasion | Fernandina Beach News-Leader

    I was hoping to find out if he had a previous criminal history. One other thing that I found very refreshing was the fact that the sheriff referred to the scumbag as the suspect and also as the individual. I'm very pleased to see he did not refer to him as a "gentleman".

    I also really like the sheriff's reply to the reporter as follows:

    Asked if it is the right thing to do to shoot someone breaking into your house, Leeper said, “Certainly people have guns in their homes to protect themselves and their property. If you break into a home you might expect to get shot, so I would suggest not to break into homes.”

    I gotta say though, he wasn't doing too shabby in the physical strength department, still kicking down doors and all at 72, albeit for the wrong reasons...

    I love it when the good guys and gals win. Give that man a ceegar. Nice shooting, another dirtbag off the streets.

    You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

    The 72 year old was the one breaking in. The home owner shot him
