Heh: Burglar Calls 911 After Homeowner Pulls Gun on Him

Paging Bob Costas, come in, Mr. Costas. Here’s another reason why people arm themselves.

A suspected burglar called 911 after the owner of the home he broke into caught and held him at gunpoint.

The suspect, Christopher Moore, placed the emergency call in Springtown, Texas, during the botched burglary attempt early Tuesday after James Gerow, the homeowner, and Gerow’s son pointed guns at him as he sat in his pickup truck parked in the driveway.

“I’m out in the country somewhere,” Moore told the 911 operator during the 10-minute call. “Some guy’s got a gun on me.”

Gerow’s wife, Lindy, placed a concurrent call to 911 that confirmed Moore’s account.

“You better come quick,” she said, “or my husband’s going to shoot him.”

“If he gets out of the truck, shoot him in the legs,” James Gerow told his son, according to the Dallas Morning News Crime Blog. “You ain’t gotta kill him—just shoot him in the legs.”

Good thing the suspect is white or, you know, racism!

    Guess the perp didn’t get the memo to just wait a couple weeks for the Obamacrats to steal the guys stuff after driving off the cliff and hand the goodies to perp as food stamps and obamaphones and more ‘free’ stuff.

    Don’t worry, the perp probably voted at least once.
