Good job.

We need more reports like this.
Thanks to the Blaze for reporting it.

Ponca City Police say once they complete the investigation the case will be turned over to the DA

Is that standard procedure, or do they intend to prosecute the homeowner for something, regardless?

The only part of this that I have a problem with is “the case is under investigation”.

What is there to investigate?

Although I must admit, if it were me, I would sound a bit more anguished.

That's a good question.
I recommend you contact Don Bohon, Police Chief of the Ponca City Police Department and ask him.

'Some neighbors question whether it was necessary to shoot the intruder more than once'... couldn't the homeowner just have shot the intruder once in the face, and then hugged him and offered a tamale? What kind of world do we live in where we just keep shooting when a random intruder kicks our front door in?

Moral of the story; don't move into a Mexican neighborhood and expect your door not to be kicked in. If you do move into a Mexican neighborhood, surrender your firearms to the local authorities for goverment cheese (queso) coupons. Mexicans can't legally own guns in Mexico; and neither should you if you live in the USA in an illegal alien neighborhood! Stupid Gringos!

This story needs to go in two files.

1) Things you should do when home invaders attack.

2) Things you shouldn't say to the cops.

Problem is, the cops aren't that helpful.
We're on our own, and we always have been.

The United States Citizens KNOW that they're going to have to fight TYRANTS in their own government.
You cannot protect life, without the ability to take life.

While you are WAITING for the police to respond, someone could be losing their life.
All people of a responsible age should be armed.

As EternalVigilance reminded us:

Click here to read the 12 page pamphlet.


Let us NEVER FORGET THAT !

Let's subjugate them to OUR end game, DUST!
"COMPROMISE" is a DIRTY word!
People who study the Bible know that COMPROMISE almost always leads to destruction.


It's time to mock the "Gun Control" Zombies!
"Gun Control" is a firm grip, steady breathing, accurate aim (developed by lots of practice), and a slow trigger pull.


The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
We need to learn from the Swiss and implement their "gun control measures" here in the United States right now, today!
These laws are the ones we should shove into the "2nd Amendment Haters" faces.

The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
Let's adopt THEIR LAWS !

Remember: Read Second Amendment: It’s Not About Hunting, IT'S ABOUT TYRANNY .

Unless you live across the street from a donut shop, calling 911 is a waste of time, except to tell them you were in fear of your life as perps were beating in your door and you had to shoot one or more of them.

“I was so afraid for my life, I don’t remember how many shots I fired.” “Please call for an ambulance for them!” [actually you are thinking Coroner’s Wagon]

What is a burglar thinking about when they break into an occupied home?
Is he stupid or does he think he is bulletproof.

If this were me I would have been screaming to the burglar that I am in here and when you come through the door you can kiss your ass goodbye.

Of course Joe Biden would have shot out the window.

He was probably drunk, or on drugs and obviously VERY STUPID.
But he might have thought the homeowner wouldn't fire.

Don’t ever talk like this to the dispatcher. Better to put the phone down and mumble to yourself if you need to build up your courage to kill or shoot in self-defense.

The left wants to take this right away from us. The left wants the underclass to waltz right in, rape the women and take what is “rightfully” theirs. A little “income redistribution.”

The answer is a little lead redistribution.

Welcome to Free Republic. Way to start out strong!

You apparently know much more than I do: Have the Osage been at that location since the dawn of time?

Or was perhaps that great parcel of land, the Osage Nation country, simply sitting empty and awaiting their arrival? No wars, no battles, no skirmishes with other peoples?

I think you will find that “turning the case over the the DA or county Attorney is SOP in any homicide.

This is how it goes:

Incident happens
Police respond (time variable)
Police conduct on-scene investigation
Police complete a report
Police send report to DA
DA decides whether or not to prosecute.

(and in the meantime, any follow-up interviews are conducted, the results of those interviews (by police) are also sent to the DA for consideration)

Just because a report is sent to the DA does not mean the homeowner will be prosecuted. In this case, the charges will probably be against the B&E suspect.

Long answer short-almost all police-responding calls will result in a report to the DA. Does not always mean charges will be made.

” If anyone as a right to complain about illegal immigrants, it would be them,”

Nothing illegal about immigration into the US at that time.

Nothing.

No POE’s, no immigration law, no control over the border (in fact, those all-so-innocent-and-peace-loving indians didn’t believe in borders, right?).

And today’s indians are receiving boat-loads of federal aid and assistance so there is no reason they can’t use the education they are provided, the free medical care to mature, grow and become accomplished. But yet. . .they usually don’t.

They instead remain on the reservation drinking and doing drugs, abetting drug-smugglers and engaging in criminal acts.

Of course, we must understand they are suffering from historical PTSD. . .not their fault, such fragile creatures.

Oh. . .and welcome to FR. . .too bad your stay will be so short.

Having lived in the Osage Nation/Osage County, I think all of you are conflating multiple issues and adding more heat than light to the discussion. Yes, there are Mexicans in Ponca City but I don’t get where that is part of the original post or the 911 call.

As to the origin of the Osage Tribe having that reservation east of Ponca City, they were moved there from Kansas in order to give agricultural land over to homesteaders. They got the OK land in trade because the feds thought it was worthless. The tribe got the last laugh with the discovery of the huge oil field there that resulted in the establishment of Phillips Petroleum and Conoco, among many others.

Thanks. I thought I'd see if anyone knew how that worked there (just a routine review of the incident).

There was one time when a homeowner was tormented by drunks pounding on his front door at odd hours, because the previous owner had been a party animal.

After greeting them several times with a gun, to tell them to sod off, which often took a long time to get through their head fog, he came up with a simple solution that generally worked. A powerful strobe light with a switch in his bedroom.

After getting flashed for a few seconds, they generally took off.

I don’t blame the shooter AT ALL. But his choice of language was unfortunate “Please Hurry,I’m afraid the intruder might kill me. I’m don’t want to hurt him but will have no choice if he breaches the door.” This is Oklahoma so he is probably OK. In New Jersey, he’d be in big trouble.

“Unless you live across the street from a donut shop, calling 911 is a waste of time...”

The little bank counter at the local grocery store was held up at gunpoint a few weeks ago. 100 feet down the strip-mall sidewalk two cops were at the Starbucks. The robber made a clean get-a-way. So it really is “When seconds count....”

“What is a burglar thinking about when they break into an occupied home? Is he stupid or does he think he is bulletproof.”

In the State of Washington there have been an uptick in the bad guys getting shot. From the net:

“Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist put it bluntly to the Tacoma News Tribune after a 19-year-old would-be burglar took a shotgun blast to the face Tuesday night.

“Here’s a lesson for potential burglars,” he was quoted as observing. “When you break into someone’s house, you take a chance you’re going to get shot.”.......

Tacoma Police spokesman Mark Fulghum told the newspaper that “We’ve found nothing at this point that (the homeowner) would be arrested for.”........

As one Tacoma police officer told this column, would-be burglars should consider getting shot an occupational hazard. That just might serve to deter some people from taking up a life of petty crime and instead finding more gainful, and honest, employment.
