I’m exercising my editorial prerogative on this one to include “clubbing” with “shooting”, as Our Hero used a shotgun to send a choirboy to his justified end:
An 82-year-old Vietnam War veteran beat an armed home invader to death with the butt end of a shotgun to protect his 79-year-old wife after the invader attacked her in their home in South Carolina on Monday.
…and we’re talking ten (10!) butt-strokes.
of course, we get the prerequisite “you shouldn’t do that” warning from the fuzz:
Captain Eric Abdullah, a spokesman for the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, advised all residents to immediately contact law enforcement if they believe their home is being broken into. “Of course, folks have the right to defend themselves if their lives are in danger, but the best thing to do is to call for help.”
Call for help in carting the scumbag’s corpus delicti away, would be my advice.
If this story doesn’t put a smile on your face and bring out an “Attaboy!”, I don’t want to talk to you.
