Dept. Of Righteous Shootings

From Melbourne (Florida, not Strylia duh) comes this little story:

One man is dead and two others wounded after West Melbourne police said a group of people broke into an apartment early Sunday and were met by an armed homeowner.

The shooting happened at about 2:25 a.m. at the Reserves of Melbourne apartment complex in the 2200 block of Launch Court, just south of West New Haven Avenue. The suspects are believed to be in their 20s, said Graig Erenstoft, spokesperson for the West Melbourne Police Department.

The latest incident unfolded after several people, possibly armed with at least one firearm, forcefully broke into an apartment, police said. The homeowner, who had a gun of unknown caliber, fired on the group, striking at least three of those carrying out the home invasion, police reported. Police arrived minutes later along with paramedics.

One unidentified suspect was taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center where a doctor later pronounced him dead. Another suspect turned up on his own at the hospital and was treated for his wounds, police said. No details were released about the third person who was shot.

Hey:  one out of three ain’t bad, but clearly Our Hero needs a little range time, should any such occasions arise in the future.  (Because if his house was targeted, there may well be a repeat performance.)



  1. Give the homeowner a prize and a couple of days training at the gun school of their choice. Maybe a few days of one on one lessons with a top trainer and a couple crates of ammunition.

    Now get the perps remains into a gibbet at the town square with a sign around their neck stating how the miscreant met their demise. This will be a lesson for others who have an inclination towards committing crimes.


    1. It works for me.
      And lest the enemies of peace and prosperity claim it is too barbaric, consider how barbaric the times are now. Too many people who do this sort of murderous crime are unaffected by ordinary deterrents. They aren’t afraid of the judges, prison, or the police. All that’s left is fear of private citizens and public object lessons such as the Gibbet and heads on pikes.
      When the crime goes down again we can talk about “civilized.”

      1. some people only understand the natural laws of force and barbarism. These are the anti social criminals who we are trying to educate.

        When a child asks why water freezes into ice, we don’t get bogged down into the advanced and complex chemistry and physics in the explanation. We tell them an answer that they can comprehend. Criminals, socialists, communists, Democrats and others should be treated the same way.


  2. Now what would the headline say IF some ‘leaders’ have their way ??
    Man found dead in ransacked apartment. Police have NO idea who,
    when, why or how such a dastardly crime was committed ! Story at 10:00 !
    You should see, if you don’t already know, what a 12Ga double barrel
    coach gun with single or double ‘ought buck does to tissue at about 20 ft.
    It ain’t pretty but it is effective !

    1. With the dead man the apartment dweller, the media could quickly jump to “Gangland related” with no one but the relatives to claim it was not that at all.
