Man, 85, fools, captures alleged burglar


news.yahoo.com

CLOVIS, N.M. - An 85-year-old man whose home was burglarized three times within a week decided to take matters into his own hands. Alton Tillman left his home at his regular time Tuesday, but doubled back and quietly went inside, finding emptied drawers, items in disarray — and someone's feet sticking out from under a bed, police said.

When officers arrived, they found Tillman pointing a handgun at a 16-year-old boy standing against a wall, they said.

I think it's great that this man took matters into his own hands. I don't think enough people do that these days. The police tell you never to take matters into your own hands, but I disagree when it comes to my home and family.

Police help solve crimes, good citizens help prevent crimes.

I'm glad he was able to safely capture this kid. He was burglerized three times, and the police did nothing. You would think they would have got the picture. Just another reason why people should be allowed guns. If this man didn't own a gun, the kid may have hurt him.

Not very surprising, is it? No wonder why people are taking matters into their own hands.

I agree.

But, you have to ask yourself, would you have felt the same way if the 16 year old?
Or would this just be some story to you that you didn't care for.

To be honest, If the kid had been shot, I wouldn't care less about the story, let alone the story behind the story.
