Florida police chief issues warning to criminals after homeowner shoots burglars: ‘Most people are armed’

Andrew Miller
A Florida police chief issued a warning to criminals in the state after saving a burglar who was shot by a homeowner.

“One should expect that if you are brazen enough to enter into someone’s residence and it is not yours, with intent to commit an unlawful act, there may be repercussions,” Haines City Police Chief Gregory Goreck said in a Friday press conference.

“We live in Florida, and more so, we live in Polk County, and most people are armed,” he said.

Goreck was responding to an incident on Friday where a Florida man with a concealed weapon permit arrived home and found two intruders burglarizing his residence.

Erratic man armed with baseball bat, knife was tased, arrested inside Valley Walmart

Garrett Cabeza, The Spokesman-Review, Spokane, Wash.
A 31-year-old man acting erratically and armed with a knife and baseball bat inside a Spokane Valley Walmart was tased several times by law enforcement before he was arrested Saturday.

Shortly before noon, deputies responded to Walmart, 15727 E. Broadway Ave., for reports of a man, later identified as James W. Jennings, jumping on a vehicle and trying to light it on fire in the parking lot, according to a Spokane Valley Police Department news release.

After Jennings moved away from the vehicle, bystanders removed burning clothing Jennings placed under the vehicle, potentially preventing the car from igniting, deputies said.

Deputies contacted Jennings inside the store where he was armed with a large kitchen knife, baseball bat, batting helmet and a pole, according to the release.

One in the hospital and one on the run.
Shooting criminals is so much fun.


” ‘Most people are armed’ ”

If you keep that in mind you should be ok.


True that.

I am on the lookout for one of the two tone Savage 1911’s without the rail. Don’t think they are available yet though.


People are finally realizing that no one is coming to save them, they MUST be prepared to save themselves. And get you some range time. One with “multiple gunshot wounds, none considered life threatening…” and one in the wind. The perp pic says a thousand words. Looks nothing like how depicted in the TeeVee commercials.

Reason #669 as to why I don’t go to Wally World.

Statues of Heroes being replaced by statues of Saint George Fentanyl will rebuild the roots. /s/

“…the preeminent handgun designs of the 20th century…” Couldn’t of said it better myself. Now, let us all turn to The Book of Rev, Chapter 19 V 11.


…and to think that I saw it at Sam Waltons Place!


No excuses, but it is almost 1100 hrs MST and the temperature gauge here at Whiz Wheel®™ Headquarters says it’s currently 17 below zero, so it’s a little slow in getting fired up. / s

Anyway, Tyriek Tramaine Washington spins up a DAM/WRT score of 160.


None needed. Toss another phony on the fire.
