EPIC FAIL: Thugs storm house, failing to notice sticker on car out front

July 28, 2014

 

A home invasion trio became a duo Sunday shortly after lunchtime in Indianapolis after storming a near northside home.

Outside the home was an SUV with a subtle “Molon Labe” sticker.

Inside the home were a couple of guys.  With guns.  And the knowledge, skills and attitudes to employ them to repel violent attack.

The trio stormed the house looking for a quick score.  Shots were fired on both sides, but in the end, proper technique and skill trumps Hollywood- and music video gun training.  Two of bad guys left, most lickety-split, after their compatriot sprang a leak or three and became DRT – or “dead right there”.

Sadly, the other two who escaped have not been collared by police, nor have they shown up at a hospital with gunshot wounds.

The media were on the scene, of course, and the neighbors let it be known they supported the homeowner and to let would-be hoodlums know that Indiana is home to a lot of gun owners who will defend themselves against criminals.

    Those three mutts probably couldn’t read English, much less Greek, thanks to the ghetto culture that eschews education.

    I would give less thought to giving my morning constitutional than for the life of the scumbag who got killed “DRT” there.

    My only regret is that those guys in the house didn’t get the other two while they were at it. It probably wasn’t their first home invasion.

      your spelling is good….your humanity and apparent humility….not so much (and I was rooting for the guys in the house) shame on you….

      • ken on July 28, 2014 at 11:05 pm

        Jennifer, you’re a chick. We forgive you. We know very few chicks can (a) MAKE the right choices and even fewer can (b) carry them out. Thankfully God gave us MEN to do these things.

        You’re not very bright. There’s nothing inhuman or non-humble about celebrating the extinguishment of the existence of an [DELETED].

        God will sort us all out in the end. This one just ended up at Purgatory a little quicker than you or I will.

        Don’t pick on Jennifer because she’s a woman.

        Disagree with her if you want to (I do) but lay off the woman bashing, ok?

        The women I teach to shoot are empowered by it. Not just because they can safely and with great effect pull a trigger, but because after completing the class they have the “knowledge, skills and attitudes… to repel violent attack”.

      • Joe in a forest on July 29, 2014 at 9:51 am

        Ken,
        Sir, I must call you out on your attack of Jennifer.

        Your comments are UN CALLED FOR and give gun haters ample ammunition to keyhole responsible gun owners as “Neanderthals”. And if you actually represented us, we would be.

        She merely commented on SW’s lack of compassion for the maggots who escaped.

        While I’m in full agreement with SW, Jennifer made it clear she was in agreement with the home owner and did not appreciate SW’s callous disregard for the lives of the assailants. Then you treated her like crap.

        Its fine to disagree, but without respect for Jennifer is not appropriate.

        Not cool man, NOT COOL.

      • SpicyPanda on July 29, 2014 at 10:58 am

        Ken,

        REAL MEN respect women aren’t misogynist d-bags. Why do you always post such stupid and ignorant comments? You’re just as bad as the anti-gunners spewing loads of bigotry and crap from their mouths.

      • Lisa on July 30, 2014 at 8:39 am

        Wow I didn’t agree with her post but DUDE, I’m a chick that OC’s everywhere I go and I CC where I cannot. I sleep with my weapon by my bed. Do not be condescending. I also have the skills to dispatch someone. However, as I have talked to many people who have had to kills in a “kill or be killed” scenario, they say it’s not easy, it’s not what you think it will be and it will change your life. Don’t be so rude.

      • Kira on July 30, 2014 at 10:26 pm

        Chump

      • Cat on August 18, 2014 at 6:47 am

        You say “chick” as an insult. Instead of addressing her comment with a relevant opposing view, you attempt to use her gender as an insult. I can only surmise that you view you self superior to women. You’re likely to be one of those types who if they hit in a woman and her date walked over, would apologize to the man and not the woman you were bothering.

        And kudos to the real men who spoke up here!

      • Deb on August 18, 2014 at 7:34 am

        Really Ken….Then you never meant me!! Most of the women I know can handle themselves pretty darn well and even support themselves! So don’t go on a rant here an put down the majority of the women in this world that helped to get the majority of the men in this world where they are today!!

      • Virginia on August 18, 2014 at 8:43 am

        I am a chick and I have absolutely no problem pulling the trigger. Ken you need a reality check! Lord help anyone who enters my home do harm to me or any member of my family.

      • yamel on August 18, 2014 at 6:16 pm

        Lol. Ken you shouldve been swallowed but Dam, she couldn’t follow through with her decision….

      • Jettison on August 19, 2014 at 12:06 am

        What an ass clown thing to say. There are plenty of women who can get the job done as well if not better than a man. Sex has absolutely nothing to do with it. When you say “We forgive you” only goes to show you truly have a massive turd in your pocket. Don’t try pulling in the entire male gender to your dillusional thinking.

      • MajorZero on July 30, 2014 at 7:59 am

        In Indianapolis we have had 85 homicides this year, two police officers slain in less than a year. At first the thugs went after each other over drugs, turf, respect, whatever. Now they are going after everyone else and we are sick of it.

        Indianapolis is finally fighting back.

      • MajorZero on July 30, 2014 at 7:59 am

        why it posted it as a reply i dont know…supposed to be a stand alone comment…

      • Russ on August 18, 2014 at 5:58 pm

        Really? We don’t shoot to cause injury, we shoot, which is called DEADLY FORCE. You shoot with intent that the person you are shooting at, is hit and they are no longer a threat to your life or someone else’s. Rest assured if someone breaks in to my house, if, no WHEN I draw my gun the intent is to stop the threat and force reactive to what they do. Ohio has a castle doctrine which says that you have absolutely no duty to retreat.

        So, if you are breaking in, I no longer have to wait for a physical threat. It also says that if someone is injured or killed they or their families can not use the incident in civil related issues.

        The family can’t come say we’ll he was hungry and meant no harm. All that is gone. You break into my house or my car and I have time to confront that person, I will. If there is any shade of gray as a threat ro my life and my family’s life are in harms way you’re going to get shot. Sign on all the entry door’s from NRA brief line saying deadly force shall be used upon anyone breaking into the house.

        My job, I am working with a firearm all day and bet that I have it on me….all times. When outside, with in a few steps anywhere in the house is a weapon.

        So yes the fact someone died for breaking in, home invasion is great. It is too bad the other 2 were not also killed. Fairly big sign warning criminals you will be killed.

    • Troll on August 18, 2014 at 3:33 pm

      i came here for the comments but yeah go guns and stuff lololol

    • ShooterBobSC on August 18, 2014 at 3:50 pm

      Sam Whittemore died in 1793. He was plowing as the troops marched on Concord and Lexington. He took up arms against the British army from which he had retired. He was 78. He was shot and bayoneted several times. That was after he had dispatched 3 troops from the world’s most capable army of that day. Left for dead colonials found him and carried him on a door to the tavern where the doctor set us a sort of field hospital. His actions at arms for the nation he loved were on April 15, 1775. He lived 18 more years. Long enough to see freedom and the Republic established!!
      Oh and I agree, I just hate they missed the other two. Bigger guns needed perhaps?

  2. Pammiecakes on July 29, 2014 at 6:34 am

    Jennifer probably voted for Obama. Some stupidity cannot be overlooked. She probably dates mutts like the ones who attempted this caper..It’s ok Jenny.. those of us with brains will use u for food when the morning constitution hits the fan!! God bless America n the 2nd ammendment. Support ur local MCs!!!

    • jboch on July 29, 2014 at 2:12 pm

      Even if she did, we all make mistakes.

      I voted for Clinton the first time around – before I grew up and smarted up. So, even if Jenn did vote for the Oh, so long as she learns from her mistakes, I’m not going to hold that against her.

      • Simwolfe on August 18, 2014 at 9:35 am

        That’s right. Those who voted for Bush twice…

      • Amanda Smith on August 22, 2014 at 3:32 am

        I can also admit my mistakes with the two Bush boys, but you remember the alternatives? We haven’t had anyone worth voting for since Reagan. I haven’t seen but a few Democrats admit theirs..unfortunately.

      • Simwolfe on August 18, 2014 at 9:37 am

        Smated up?! LOL. At least Clinton and the Congress worked together and we had a surplus. Wow, smarted up my ass. lol

    • Dave on July 30, 2014 at 10:50 am

      And you are a sick hater!

  3. SED on July 29, 2014 at 11:43 am

    Ken, one of the legal lessons we try to pass on is to never express a racist comment upon the certainty that it will come back to haunt you if you ever have to use deadly force. Your comment above is a hate crime waiting to happen. Second, please take my word for the fact that there are a lot of women out there that will punch a bad guy’s ticket just as fast as any man. Finally, you talk a good and cavalier game with regard to remorselessly terminating bad guys but I wonder just how you will really feel when a human being is bleeding out in front of you gasping his last breaths. I do not think the normal person is going to feel too good about it although they may exalt in their own survival. Deadly force is a last resort which may be necessary but never desired.

    • FrankM on August 18, 2014 at 1:21 pm

      Hi everybody, I came across this on facebook, and reading the comments would like to add one of my own. I served in the Army for twenty years and followed up by living in South Africa for another twenty. Over those forty years I have used deadly force more than once and the one thing I have learnt is that it should never be easy and you should never be glad that you have been forced to take another life. Exultation at surviving is normal rejoicing in death isn’t.

  4. First Lady on July 29, 2014 at 3:35 pm

    Ken,
    As many have already noted, your comments to Jennifer were uncalled for and make the entire “community” look bad. As a woman, I can tell you that if I were in this situation, or one of my loved ones were being threatened, I wouldn’t have to think twice about pulling a trigger. My training and skills acquired through that same training would kick in. I wouldn’t “need” any man to assist me. Bad guys would be DRT.
    Also, it’s not 1950 any more. “Chick” is a derogatory term. I’m sure you feel that you can get away with this type of woman bashing because of the anonymity of this site. This is not what GSL is about or supports. You sir, owe Jennifer an apology.
    I might also add that in recent training classes that I have attended, it is about 50/50 men to women ratio. Of the women that I know who are permit holders and have attended training sessions with me, I would entrust them with not only my life but the lives of those that I love.
    Show some class and respect next time you post.

  5. Scott on July 30, 2014 at 7:29 am

    I would have enjoyed this article a lot more if you had included the meaning of “molon labe” as it seems to be a key part of the story. Before anyone comments, I am an educated upper middle class home owner who only speaks english. Also, Google tranlate was no help. lol

    • Jim on July 30, 2014 at 7:55 am

      It’s Greek for “come and get it.” The original source is when the Spartans fought the Persians. The Persians offered to let the Greeks live if they gave up their arms, to which the Greeks said “GFY.” The movie “300” is based on the story.

      • Scott on July 30, 2014 at 8:13 am

        Thank you

      • Travis on August 18, 2014 at 11:23 am

        Jim, it actually means “come and take”.

      • Travis on August 18, 2014 at 11:25 am

        It is a classical expression of defiance reportedly spoken by King Leonidas I in response to the Persian army’s demand that the Greeks surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. It is an exemplary use of a laconic phrase.

  6. DM on July 30, 2014 at 10:56 am

  9. Mr. Curmudgeon on July 30, 2014 at 8:11 pm

    What does Molon Labe mean? As for the comment generating so much side discussion, I’ve been a LE FAI for 30 yrs. I’m a dinosaur, yes. And I find that often females are better shooters than men at the recruit level. Why? Because they don’t have attitudes previously displayed, and are willing to listen, learn, and excel. I love it when a female officer takes top gun in an academy class. It’s usually over the muscle bound testosterone laden types, which makes their success even more poignant!!!

    • jboch on July 31, 2014 at 9:30 pm

      Molon Labe

      Go rent the movie 300.

      Molon Labe was the Spartans’ answer to the Persian King who wanted them to surrender their arms.

      Translated, it means “Come and take them”.

  10. Jackiev on July 30, 2014 at 10:29 pm

    Very interesting !!!!!!

  11. TheRealDingus on August 18, 2014 at 5:15 am

    First: stop post bashing. It isn’t proper. You read the article. bash the content or the story it self.
    Second: To end the life of someone like those 3 is akin to cutting cancer from the body. yes it is a living thing but it is destructive to the rest of the body so it must go. Same with the type of person that will invade a home for the sake of benefiting from the contents. Those cancers must be cut from society. There is no other treatment acceptable.
    Click, bang, bury.

    Joe& Jon get off Ken as he has the right to his opinion to. But Jenn wake up honey those punks got what they deserve. Show no sympathy to those criminals.

    If someone breaks in my house tryn to steal what I worked for, I shoot them too. I give a rats ass if they armed or not

    You have to love this website. Brilliant, racist, crazy, fair, disturbed and educated minds, but overall 2nd amendment lovers.

  16. willaim sunderland on August 18, 2014 at 8:43 am

    I’m amazed how this became about Jennifer. Look, God’s greatest gift to the world is women. No doubt. But this is about scum breaking into people’s houses not women’s rights. Get the sand out of your collective vagainas boys and girls. You’re all TOO SENSITIVE!! That’s what happened to freedom of speech. Women have been fooled to leave the home, enter the work force and receive payment 30% less than men doing the same job. Not a very good decision is it boys? Now mothers are no longer in the homes installing family values and our children have become an industry of day care which is installing government teachings. That’s called COMMUNISM. So look at the real problem and by the way, name ONE great female leader in history that wasn’t burned at the stake (Joan of Ark) or leading an already castrated Egypt (Cleopatra). You can’t, and that is a shame. One of the reasons why is all of you tough guy men coming to her majesty’s rescue instead of letting her defend herself.

    Ending a life is never as easy as some people think it is. Even in combat.
    I has been my experience that women traditionally will protect their home more fiercely than a man will. Especially if she has children. Either way, good job men. I hope the other two are found.

  18. Todd on August 18, 2014 at 11:17 am

    If god wanted Jennifer to be smart she would have been born a man.

    @Ken, your a dirtbag , other human.

    Its dirt wads like you that make me regret serving my country for 23 years. But all the others make it worth it.

    As an N.R.A. certified firearms instructor, I try to weed out people like you, your mentality is a danger to society.

    Ken,
    I am a philosophy of religion major and an atheist. I must say your arguement is as falacious as it is ignorant. If you are representative of Christians or “responsible” gun owners then it should be easy to understand why I do not agree with legalized fire-arms or organized religions. Do yourself a favor, read your bible and try to grasp that the one thing that was tought by all of Jesus’ lessions was love, and research crime rates per capita of countries with banned fire-arms (I think you will find their crime to be MUCH less than purs). Until you are capable of sound arguments and knowledgable premises please do not attempt to disease the world with your sexiest ignorance.

    • Amanda Smith on August 22, 2014 at 3:49 am

      Oh, that’s deep coming out of the mouth of a libtard. Funny how tards quote the Bible when it suits them. Get your facts straight – In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

      ——————————

      In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

      ——————————

      Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

      ——————————

      China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

      ——————————

      Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

      ——————————

      Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

      ——————————

      Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million ‘educated’ people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
      Now, GO back to MSNBC to get your daily dose of leftist propaganda.
