‘Sheriff, hurry up please.’ Disabled man battles intruder as cops wait down the street

By EILEEN KELLEY
He had just stepped from the shower and was settling in for the night when he caught a glimpse of a figure outside his window.

Seventy-year-old Bill Norkunas, a childhood polio survivor, headed over to the light and flicked it on hoping to scare away whoever was there. Instead, the light was a beacon drawing a young man to his front door, a door made of glass.

And then for the next 15 minutes, Norkunas stood there, barefoot and unclothed, with his crutches, on one side of the glass pane trying to steady a gun in his trembling hand while the stranger stood on the other side, pounding on the door, banging it with his hip or gnawing at the thick hurricane-grade glass with a garden paver.

Norkunas, who suffered minor injuries from the glass digging into his foot, has no idea why the man, later identified as 23-year-old Timothy Johnson of Fort Lauderdale, tried to break down his door on Nov. 7.

And as bewildering, and just as terrifying to him, is the knowledge that a squad of Broward sheriff’s deputies responded to his Tamarac neighborhood, but none came close to his home to stop the man. Instead, they waited down the street until he walked over to them and surrendered, witnesses told the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Hat tip to our own KoB for the inspiration.

“To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege.” [Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)]

    According to the article 18 deputies were dispatched to the call. That alone is a monumental fuck up. Short of an active shooter or some major catastrophe there would never be a reason to send that many officers to a single call of this nature.

    The Broward County SO appears to still have some issues.

    The subject was arrested and released on bond, not sure why “?”. He will plead guilty to a lesser charge and get some probation with the pinky promise to get off drugs. Maybe 30 days in jail.

    -Broward-

    Find some Eagle Scouts (patrol) and some recent Combat Arms vets (swat), and start over.

    Sheesh.

    The articles in the Armed Citizen and the one in the Sun-Sentinel are proof that the popo are not there to protect you when you need them, they are only there to write up a report of what happened. It is also proof that the court system is there to play “release the dregs of society back onto the backs of Society.” Seems to me that the ballif needs to whack the pee pee of the Judges AND the DAs.

    The picture of the Kimber 1911 and the well endowed Ms Thang is proof that AW1Ed loves us and wants us to be happy. Outstanding examples of the designs of the most Saintly JMB (Howitzer be his name) and THE One True God (Who did NOT send a murderous pedophile to be His True Disciple). She is sporting the type of floatation devices that everyone needs to have on their boat with them. HONEY HUSH!!!

    The linked articles are proof that he can keep a gun bunny distracted and out of his hair for several hours. Well played Matey. Too bad those Middies won’t play as well in a coupla more weeks when they get kicked by that (GO) Army (BEAT NAVY) Mule.

  4. This is off topic but I’ll add it in to the FGS. Saw on my home page that the Monolith was taken out by a person or persons unknown this past Friday night so that kills my story that it was used to direct archiologists wearing fedora hats and leather jackets to the Arc of the Convenent. Oh well.
