We have all been barraged with the news of the prominent San Francisco homeowner who confronted an intruder, was hit with a hammer, and is in the hospital with a fractured skull. We wish him a speedy recovery.
We turn to page two of the paper and learn of another intruder in Hidalgo County, TX, It didn't work out that well for him.
Garcia, 36, proceeded to try to break into the bedroom where the family was located, according to authorities.
"The homeowner warned Garcia that the police had been called and she had a gun. When Garcia refused to leave and continued to try to get into the bedroom, the homeowner shot once through the door. Garcia fled the house," the sheriff’s office posted to Facebook of the burglary.
Authorities launched a search of the area and found Garcia about 100 yards away from the home with a gunshot wound to the left arm. He was medically cleared and booked into the Hidalgo County Adult Detention Center for Burglary of Habitation with Intent, the sheriff’s office said on Facebook.
That's the way it is supposed to work. Someone breaks in, you shoot him. Our homeowner in SanFran should have known how to do that.
