It’s videos like this — and the desire to not be a fucking lowlife pice of shit — that keep me from breaking into people’s homes. You never know who’s house you’re trying to invade. Take this scumbag, for instance. He successfully broke into Andrew Myers home and Myers, a veteran of the 82nd Airborne Division of the United States Army, caught it all on his security cameras. Thinking the guy would come back, Myers decided to partially take the law into his own hands since the police department wasn’t going to participate in a stakeout for a minor B&E artist.
Myers’ hunch was correct; the guy came back for more. Well, that wasn’t about to happen. What was about to happen, however, was an ass beating. Most of which was caught on camera.
According to Andrew Myers’ YouTube:
The following is what takes place when a local creeper attempts a home invasion on a veteran of the 82nd Airborne. This guy was in my house earlier this week in the middle of the night on Veteran’s Day. My neighbor saw him and when we checked the security cameras sure enough, there he was. He got away with it once, but since then I have installed some security improvements to alert me to movement in my fence line.
That night somehow my door was unlocked he actually made it inside (to shoot up I’m guessing) all night where it is warm I presume. Then, he left in the morning. In the area of my home he was in I keep some very expensive camera gear for my business. I had a feeling that now that this guy knew that stuff was down there that he would be back. I had a plan, that didn’t work because I expected him to head back along the trail – instead he went around the other side of my house.
….Now I am thinking: “he just made his way around my house to attempt to gain entry upstairs (where my GF and dog are), WTF??”. – Once I told him he wasn’t coming in, and wasn’t leaving till he talked to the police he struggled to get away and tried to pull off a huge haymaker on the porch. He ate an uppercut for his troubles,(off camera) and he was just about “out” on the porch already but I realized I wanted anything that happened to be on camera so I drug him down the stairs. The rest can be seen on camera…
I own several guns that I could have used. Everyone that owns a home should own a gun. However, discretion is the difference between a responsible gun owner and a criminal. To kill someone you should have moral AND legal standing. Waiting for someone to set foot inside your house to murder them is not OK in my opinion. I took some risk, to save this idiot’s life rather than take it.
Kudos to the Seattle police as they were here right away and treated everyone involved with what seemed like “protection” and “service” – not a huge fan of cops but these guys were GREAT! The police report states: “assailant attempted an assault to break free. He lost.”
It’s too bad this doesn’t have audio of the altercation. I have a hunch of my own that Myers informed the deadbeat, as wailed away on his face, that this was his way of doing him a favor and next time he might decide play God if he ever tries to set foot on his property again. Guy is super lucky Myers isn’t about that murder life.
