He didn’t listen to Biden, and fire into the air, or this poor armed robber who was just getting his life together would still be alive. Of course, the homeowner would be dead, beaten to death, but that’s a small price to pay for saving the life of an Obama voter, isn’t it?

Never bring a bat to a gunfight.

Unless it’s Bat Masterson. :)

I guess the home owner plunked the batter. Nice pitch but he won’t be taking anything, let alone first base.

This may or may not be a mugshot of Samuel Pompa, because there is no relevant data about his age. But if it is, former offenses include theft, arson, evasion of arrest and ICE detention.

http://mugshots.com/US-Counties/Texas/Cameron-County-TX/Samuel-Pompa.6990630.html

However, his arrests were in Cameron County, which is in the extreme southern tip of Texas, but Midland is located in central-West Texas Midland County.

Gotta give the robber some credit, it really takes some cajones to break into a house with just a bat in one of the most well-armed states in the nation.

Mmmm..well... cojones means knowing the dangers but choosing to act anyway. Definition of courage.

This perp was just plain stuck on stupid. Or maybe his last words were “P***y, you’re not gonna shoot me, so I ain’t afraid of your m*****f*****g gun!”

KABLOOIE!
