Women Stop Burglary With a Pistol and a Camera – Defensive Gun Use of the Day

courtesy villages-news.com

Coming home to evidence of a break-in is your cue to dial 911 and leave the scene. But that isn’t what a Florida woman chose to do when she returned to find a broken window at her home in Belleview south of Ocala. Instead, she called her sister who grabbed a gun and drove over to lend a hand.

The women then ordered (42-year-old Christopher) Stone to come out of the house and took photos of him, the report says.

Thinking fast on his feet, Stone ginned up a story, claiming he had been chasing some one who stole his dirt bike (no one said it was a good story). Then he took off into some nearby woods.

A short time later, a sheriff’s K-9 dog apprehended Stone, who then told deputies that he was angry at another man who shot at him. He said he changed into camouflage clothing so that he wouldn’t be detected while pursuing the man, the report says.

The imaginative B&E man then came up with yet another tale.

Stone also told deputies that a brooch valued at $10 that was found in his pocket “must have fallen in when he was climbing over the victim’s property inside the laundry room.”

Cops found a pillow case full of jewelry Stone had dropped inside the home when they subsequently searched the place. He’ll have plenty of time to come up with another plausible explanation for that one as he cools his heels in the Marion County jail awaiting trial.

Just another successful defensive guns uses that require no shots fired. The kind that happen thousands of times a day in the US.

      And just look at the contempt in those eyes… you know darned well he’s not thought once that he made a bad decision – he’s just ticked he got caught and this is all someone else’s fault.

        True, but in fairness, that’s how most people think. It’s called attribution theory in psychology, and is concerned with how people explain everyday events. When we try to explain other people’s behavior, we generally use internal attribution and assign blame to some internal factor like their personality, character, beliefs, decions, etc.

        When it is our own behavior, however, we use external attribution and assign blame to external factors outside of our own control, like the situation, their upbringing, or society, etc.

    No one ever said you had to be intelligent to be a criminal. I once had an asswipe ask me to help him load a riding lawnmower in his truck. You know, the one he was stealing. Guess how that worked out for him. Not too good!

    I knew no one would hire Jim Carrey anymore (because of abuse of recreational drugs), but I didn’t think things had gotten THIS bad for him!
