Criminals seem to have still not learned the lesson that the South is a terrible place to try preying on your fellow man, as not only are people packing enough firepower to make Curtis LeMay blush, but their state governments are generally friendly toward them when they use it.
Such was seen recently in Texas, where a taqueria customer with a concealed carry pistol ended a robber’s life when he tried holding up the restaurant and its patrons. Thanks to the customer having a real firearm and the robber having a BB pistol meant to look like a firearm, it wasn’t even really a fight.
And now the lesson that the South is a bad place to rob people is coming from Louisiana, where a woman shot and killed a suspected robber who broke into her home early in the morning on Sunday. The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office, posting about that on its Facebook page yesterday, said:
So a thug let out of prison who had also committed a carjacking found out the hard way that crime doesn’t pay and that it’s better to live a good life than try to take the easy way out by stealing what others have learned…but, unfortunately for him, he learned that a bit too late to make use of it, as he was found dead on the scene.
The police did not say how many shots were fired or what firearm the homeowner used to defend herself and her kids from Rheams and his potentially violent predations.
