It’s Palm Beach Gardens, FL and 81-year-old Rosko Rock has rented a room in his house out to a younger woman. She’s there with a female friend of hers when the renter’s boyfriend – who has violent tendencies.
Dale Hendrix Reese, 39, was a Billy Badass with the two women after slashing the tire on the girlfriend’s car.

Omaha, NE: Dead perp’s family cries foul, DA says good shoot
Ramon Matlock would have been better served watching old re-runs of Matlock on TV than breaking through the front door into an Armed American’s home in Omaha this past weekend.
Ramon was playing thug, just like in rap videos, when reality intruded into his world in the form of hot lead, as part of his sudden and profound realization that he made a painful error in his victim selection process.
The prosecutor says “good shoot” and declined to press charges against the homeowner. Ramon’s family, however, is crying “FOUL!”, saying their little choirboy was an angel, with a job, money and was on his way to the store from his Aunty’s house when he was shot down in cold blood in the front yard of the homeowner. Or something like that.
He was probably going to cure cancer, too.
(WOWT) – Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine has decided not to file charges against the homeowner responsible for shooting and killing an intruder.
On Monday, County Attorney Don Kleine announced the shooting of Ramon Matlock was justified.
Officers arrived at North 49th and Fort shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday and found the body of 19-year-old Ramon Matlock of Omaha lying on the front lawn of the house. Police said he entered the residence through the front door. Details of exactly what happened next have not been released.
Matlock’s family tells WOWT 6 News they want a full investigation and can’t think of a reason why Ramon would break into a home because he’s never done so before. They say he has a job, has money and was on his way to the store from his aunt’s house two blocks away. They say his dad also lives two blocks away in the opposite direction. They wonder if he got confused and went to the wrong house.
“I want some extensive investigation into why the man is claiming this, and if it’s so, well it’s so, but if not, we want to get to the truth,” said Richard Matlock, the suspect’s grandfather.
Ramon’s grandfather though did tell WOWT 6 News he can understand why a homeowner would be scared in such a situation. “I want no retaliation or anything, the gentleman’s at his home…so what else can you say? And I don’t know the circumstances,” he explained.
The 19 year old’s aunt, Estelle Bowman, was the last person to see Ramon alive. He was at her house. “I don’t understand why you shoot someone outside your house…he got shot outside he didn’t get shot inside,” she told WOWT 6 News.
Here’s a couple of more bad guys who suffered sudden and profound failures in their predatory victimization selection:
