NC: Never fight back against home intruders. DO NOT RESIST!

 Not a parody, believe it or not.
-- Try to stay calm: Don't make any sudden movements to upset the robber.
-- Tell the robber about anything that might surprise him for example, someone is on their way home.
-- If you have to move or reach, tell the robber what you're doing.
-- And of course, try to get a good look at the robber so you can describe them later.

A resident defending his property shot an attempted breaking and entering suspect, ultimately leading to his arrest Wednesday evening.

Around 3:30 Wednesday, police say a resident came home to his residence in the 8300 block of Merryvale Lane to find two subjects inside his home. During the confrontation, police say the resident fired shots at the suspects. One of the suspects fled on foot, while the other fled in a vehicle.

A short time later, CMPD received word of an accident at the intersection of Sam Wilson and Old Dowd Roads; there they found a vehicle stopped in the middle of the road with the driver suffering a life threatening gunshot wound. The driver was taken to CMC Main by Medic.

  1. -- If you have to move or reach, tell the robber what you're doing.

    Ok, robber, that click you heard, that was the safety, the metallic sound, that was me racking the pump. Not sure if you're going to hear this next part....

  2. Further proof we are living in the twilight zone. The police will save you? The police are more likely to murder you than save you. If a cop was always close enough to save me, that would be more disturbing than the threat of a home invasion. Up is down, down is up. Cold is hot........

    1. Up is down, down is up. Cold is hot........


  3. Unwanted visitors will be sent home in a box, postage due

  4. Bang! Bang! Bang! Put your hands up! Oh sorry did I get that backwards? I don't think so.

    1. Warnings may only get you and/or your family killed.

  5. Brock,
    I guess the deputy lied? That NC state law was now on the homeowners side and that we should "Rule 1; shoot first and ask questions only if you're not sure you're being invaded. If you are sure, refer to rule #1."

    We have had two home invasions here in Pitt County in the last few weeks. The deputies are certain they are targeting older people who potentially have pills... That implies that they are locals with knowledge of the community.

    In future, WHAT TOWN IS THIS?

    1. I guess the deputy lied?

      About what?


      West Charlotte is mentioned in the link above. More with video @ WCNC

  6. Charlotte where? England where they have no guns? What Yankee cop is passing out this advice?

    1. It read to me like it was the "reporter" giving the advice which he had supposedly heard from some Yankee carpetbagger, imagine. :)

  7. That advice sounds like good advice when dealing with cops!
    If this is how to deal with crooks.
    It's also how to deal with cops.
    Soooooo, if a=b and b=c then a=c, cops = crooks.

  8. The Sheriff in my area, on the local news, stated you have every right to defend
    your property with deadly force, if need be. It use to be in Georgia, you were
    told by law enforcement on a one to one basis ( I knew a lot of State Troopers )
    if you catch someone breaking in, shoot them and then drag their body inside.
    The Troopers were serious.
