Couple Make Burglar Clean Up at Gunpoint
Associated Press & Comcast ^ | 18 Oct 07 | None

Posted on 10/19/2007 3:01:14 AM PDT by SkyPilot

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - A burglar in Montgomery chose the wrong family to mess with, literally. Adrian and Tiffany McKinnon returned home on Tuesday after a week away to find that thieves had emptied almost everything the family of five owned, Tiffany McKinnon said through tears.

"Tears just rolled down my face as I walked in and saw everything gone and piles of trash all over my home," she said.

Adrian McKinnon sent his wife to see her sister while he inspected the piles left behind. As he walked back into the sunroom, a man walked through the back door straight into him, Tiffany McKinnon told the Montgomery Advertiser in a story Thursday.

"My husband Adrian caught the thief red-handed in our home," she said. "And what is even crazier, the man even had my husband's hat sitting right on his head."

Adrian McKinnon held the suspect, 33-year-old Tajuan Bullock, at gunpoint and told him to sit on the floor until he decided what to do.

"We made this man clean up all the mess he made, piles of stuff, he had thrown out of my drawers and cabinets onto the floor," Tiffany McKinnon said.

When police arrived, Bullock complained about being forced to clean the home at gunpoint.

"This man had the nerve to raise sand about us making him clean up the mess he made in my house," she said. "The police officer laughed at him when he complained and said anybody else would have shot him dead."

Capt. Huey Thornton, a police spokesman, said police arrested Bullock at 2 p.m. Tuesday on burglary and theft charges. He was being held in the Montgomery County Detention Facility on a $30,000 bond.

"The victims were lucky in this case to be able to catch the suspect in the act and hold him until police arrived," Thornton said.

I would add that they were smart enough to have a firearm in their possession and skilled enough to use it.

I don't think the perp would have cleaned up the house and complied with being detained had the owner of the home enticed him with Free Healthcare.

I was searching Google to try and figure out what the hell kind of name "Tajuan" is - when I found a related thread on FR to this.

Different title, so it didn't show up in FR search.

I don’t think I would have done the same thing in this circumstance. I’d be looking for a cleanup crew experience in removing blood and brains.

And the burglar will sue them for emotional distress and humiliation- and probably win.

Butchered, 10 syllable, apostrophe filled names are common with African Americans now, especially females. The more ludricous sounding, the more difficult it is to pronounce, the better they like it. Its a cultural thing, like formalizing ebonics in a name.

I used to have a job that involved processing tax forms from low income households (mostly from inner city Atlanta). I noticed a fairly common trend of mothers giving all their kids first names that start with the same two letters (along with the usual odd spelling of common names), such as: DeWayne, Dejuan, DeShonda, Demetrius... The kids rarely had the same last name.

Google Nicholas Stix and “None of That Sheniqua Sh*t” for a different, as in refreshing, take on the whole made up names thing.

"will sue them for"

Indentured Servitude.

Our Church got caught up in that trap. We sold pumpkins several seasons to make money for our Youth Group. Some teenagers came by one night and destroyed our entire stock.

The cops caught the perps and then gave our Church leaders a sob story of the perps & parents not having any money to pay for the damages. Suggested instead that we use our heart to drop charges and have them work it off by doing our yard work (mowing).

Cops called us two days later and said that that would be Indentured Servitude (Federal Laws) and that the perps would not be responsible for their actions since they (cops) got us to drop charges.

It was only $12K (our cost) worth of pumpkins.

Uh-huh.

I’m not one to talk or be a hard-a$$ - did my share of “raising hell” when I grew up (nothing on that scale) but suspect (no, I KNOW) that if I had been properly dressed down at certain points my life would have had a lot less “pain” in the long run.

Write letters to the editor of all the local and close by newspapers about the setup. And that’s what it was, a setup.

Also contact your state AG, “victims” office. The law enforcement officials in your case acted on in bad faith, and should be held accountable.

I couldn’t find anything via “Nicholas Stix” and “sheniqua”, but it sounds great. I have a big problem with the 3-syllables-with-a-k-sound crowd.

This is what Cosby was talking about... with 70-75% out of wedlock birth rates in the black community we are sliding into oblivion. BTW Ebonix is more political correctness for liberal racism

ie blacks are too stupid to speak proper English

Its been a while and I might have gotten his name wrong. The essay was by a blogger, a former NYC school teacher and the subject was silly names.
While doing home visits and tutoring the writer met a single mother whose kids all had normal names and were doing well in school even while living in a single parent home in a tough projects type environment.
The writer remarked on the normalcy of their names being unusual in that milieu. The lady of the house made the remark she wasn’t having any of that Sheniqua sh*t for HER kids, they were going to go to school, do well on their merits and work and not have to go through life being pre-judged based on being saddled with a foolish name.

You couldn’t reinstate the complaint, however, you could have sued the police department. They are not authorized to be providing you with wrong legal advice that ends up costing you your rights and/or money. You could probably still sue them, unless this was many years ago.

I am so sorry that happened to you and your church.

It might appear that evil triumphs over good in the short run, but it never does.

God bless.
