Yet another case of power happy people trying to take the law into their own hands. They either don't have faith in their local police department, or don't have faith in anyone but themselves. Confronting a stranger over speeding is a dumb idea, and could have cost an innocent bystander their life, had the criminal not been so idiotic as to load the wrong bullets into the gun. Thank goodness nobody was hurt.

Next time call the cops and let them do their job.

So much pride, so little to be proud of.

So I am guessing this guy is NOT one of the Engineers you keep telling us you have so many of, correct?

Can't even get the right bullets? Too sad. Throw him back on the BANANA BOAT and deport him back to his Third World Latin Homeland.

Too bad the homeowner couldn't have gone in the house through the back door, grabbed the old 12 gauge and put a little firepower through that dresser.
"wrong bullets"? What a dumb crook! He should have been shot, not threatened.

To everyone who has taken the time to comment on this post: first of all you have no idea who this man is and what circumstances he was under. Secondly, for all of you who thought he should had been shot, what kind of human beings are you? This man, just like many other has a mom who did not see this coming and a family that was even more surprised. This is what is wrong with our society today. We see someone in trouble and we neglect to understand what is wrong that is causing them to react this way, instead we look to kill them and eliminate them from the world. You should all be ashamed.

You should be ashamed using "Secondly" as a word. Get off Topix with your homemade language.

And another thing, don't blame society because people like you didn't get lollipops and pats on the head by their mothers.
