Baltimore County Break-In Turns Deadly
A break-in this morning in Essex turned deadly when one of the alleged suspects died from injuries sustained from getting in the head with what police say was 'a blunt object.'Two men armed with guns broke in and started shooting. Rather than rolling over and dying, the homeowner grabbed "a blunt object" and proceeded to beat one of the men to death. The other dude took off running, which is a pretty sound tactical move when you've shot somebody and their response is not to die but to beat your friend to death.
Baltimore County Police responded around 1:25 a.m. Sunday to an apartment in the 1400 block of Strawflower Road.
He had a blunt object in a gunfight, and still came out ahead. That's pretty damn badass right there. Even if the two dudes only had .22s, that's still pretty damn tough. It really does go to show that the mindset is the key - rather than roll over and die, rather than meekly submit to being the victim, this dude got angry. I mean, plum crazy mean. He started swinging, took one guy out and scared the other guy away. That's a big win all the way around.
Unless, of course, you're an advocate for the ever-growing Nanny state and feel that self-help should be discouraged, of course...
That is all.
