CLEVELAND - A Cleveland man is being praised by a city councilman for shooting an armed intruder at his Pawnee Avenue home Tuesday.

"Whoever shot this dirt bag ought to get a medal," Ward 11 Councilman Mike Polensek said. "I might get a proclamation for him.”

It all started when Jacquella Lattimore left the house to take her children to camp. Police say she was accosted by three men who were trying to force her back into the house at gunpoint. What the intruders apparently didn't know is that Lattimore's fiancé, Johnny Bridges, was watching from the window with his gun.

Another version of the kidnapping/ home invasion in Cleveland story. Interesting to see Councilman Polensek speaking up for the defender.

We won’t be able to guess whether federal charges will be filed until we know the ethnicity of the actors...

Should have used a larger caliber. The SOB is still alive.

Why do I have a feeling Obama-Holder-Jackson-Sharpton would not approve of Johnny Bridges. Protector of his brood a righteous man, I think any FR-er would love to have him as a neighbor or go to the ball game and have a beer with him....

Well, done, Johnny. Next, do the right thing; marry this woman or quit shacking up with her.

From the article:

Bridges' bullet hit one of the suspects. All three gunmen ran. The injured suspect was taken into custody at Euclid Hospital. The other two were stopped a few blocks away after police noticed they looked suspicious.

Profiling in action. Not necessarily an evil thing, as the WH and MSM pretend.

Why are these terrorist gangs not put on the terrorist list so we can kill them with drones?

It was on Cleveland TV this week. The shooter is a big black guy. He didn't kill the intruder. A few years ago, a black resident shot and killed a black teenager-robber who was in his yard.

In the fragile neighborhoods of Cleveland, one would expect that law abiding citizens are armed.

I don't think that Obama's message of hide and your house and put up with it is resonating in Cleveland's neighborhoods.

Black on black?

Nobody in the MSM, or Holder’s DOJ, or in the race-baiting industry cares.

More’s the pity.
