Bat-Wielding Texas Robber Dies After Shotgun Blast to Chest
Breitbart News ^ | 25 Apr 2013

Posted on 04/26/2013 7:14:50 AM PDT by george76

Nothing argues for gun rights quite like a man breaking into your house with a baseball bat. In Midland, Texas, a would-be robber attempted to break into a neighbor’s home. Samuel Pompa, 32, was wielding a baseball bat. His would-be victim, 19, had a shotgun.

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!

The young man should sue the family of the lowlife for the cost of cleaning blood off the carpet.

Or better yet, since it ‘takes a village’ or a ‘community’ to raise a lowlife, maybe he should sue the community this creep came from...

I want to know if he collected food stamps and was ‘disabled’ while committing his crimes.

No he doesn’t deserve any credit. He was going after a 19 year old man. Lots of teenagers aren’t armed.

The lowlife stayed true to his filth.

Dude, it’s sarcasm, very tongue-in-cheek sarcasm.

Translation: Only an idiot would try and rob a Texas home with a baseball bat. His cajones were writing checks his ass couldn’t cash.

With a base ball bat? Amazing! and suicidal, I think.

My point is the lowlife thought a baseball bat would work against a teenager. And it would have worked against most people that age. The mark of a lowlife is they go after ‘easy pickins’ - the lowlife was a typical criminal. He wasn’t stupid - he was a worthless piece of human garbage.

Hard call if he was an illegal. I’d have to ask someone who knows what they can get and what they can’t.

It’s a good guess that he’s on the “disabled” list now, however. Won’t do him much good, “living underground”, as it were.

Unless he consolidates his votes to 10 per election.

Then again, unless he is one of the “disenfranchised dead”, because of a voter ID law.

What was that saying? “When Hell is full, the dead will all vote Democrat.”
