The folks at Team Sheriff in Mobile, Alabama have a sense of humor. Check out this video of a homeowner taking an (unlawful) shot at a fleeing burglar. The Mobile County Alabama Sheriff posted it on Facebook.
Okay, first off, never, ever take a shot at a bad guy legitimately trying to get away. If you ignore that advice, you will face the consequences – as in you'll be needing soap on a rope for some time. Because in prison, you don't want to drop the soap in the shower.
I suspect the people at Team Sheriff know that as well.
Here's the rest of their post to go along with that video:
IT IS TARGET TUESDAY!
THUGS BEWARE…Homeowners are tired of you and here is a prime example. Just before this thug gets back to his car, the homeowner fires shots as car is leaving the scene. #toobadtheymissed😳 #thetirethatis #weaddedmoreshots
Note the hash-tag comments: "Too bad they missed", "the tire that is" and "we added more shots". LOL. Ya think?
