Posted on 08/21/2013 4:01:56 PM PDT by lowbridge
An escaped inmate was shot and killed Monday by an elderly couple he had been holding at gunpoint for around four hours.
Rodney Eugene Long, a dangerous prison escapee suspected of shooting and injuring a Taylor County deputy, broke into a couples home in Bedford, Iowa, at around 10:15 p.m. Monday night and held them for four hours, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Mitch Mortvedt said during a news conference.
Jerome and Carolyn Mauderly said Long was armed with a semi-automatic handgun. Long, 38, also disabled the phones in the Maulderlys home as he apparently gathered supplies to aid his escape.
At around 2 a.m. Tuesday morning, Jerome, 71, was somehow able to retrieve his shotgun and shoot the fugitive dead. The couple immediately called 911 and police responded to their home.

“I love a happy ending.”
It’s kind of romantic that the older couple took this jerk down together. It’s really sweet!
Stand Your Ground
Rodney Long, now known as Rodney Short.
Good for them. Like they say, don’t mess with old people, they just may kill you.
Well now, Obama can’t claim that if he had a son ......
And the World’s a better place today.
Rodney Long, now known as Rodney Short.
Can someone ‘splain this:
“Long, 38, also disabled the phones in the Maulderlys home...”
“The couple immediately called 911...”
More to this, perhaps if I read more?
The Bride and I fully intend to re-enact the scenes of “Secondhand Lions” often.
She’s Garth, I’m Hub.
I heard that he cut the land line before entering, and also confiscated their cell phones. Chances are the old man just took his cell phone back.
I ain't skeered, just desperate.
Or Rodney Long Gone.
I hope he wasn’t black!
He did a Joe Biden.
“I need to go to the bathroom”
seems like a reasonable request- and a good place for hidden self defense
One of the best moviea ever.
What movie is that from?
“I need to go to the bathroomseems like a reasonable request- and a good place for hidden self defense.”
Toilet tank, stainless revolver, Pelican case.
Actually, it’s a Swiffer duster TV commercial...
Thanks, that makes sense.
There y'go .. Morty sums it all up.
As a taxpaying citizen of this rapidly evolving turd-world hell hole, I’d like to express my thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Mauderly for killing this son of a bitch. They saved me and others thousands of dollars.
Well it was long overdue.
How about “If his Mother had a Son?”
Even better - there's a wooden magazine rack that's got a hidden handgun compartment.
It'd look perfectly innocent on the bathroom wall. Around $130 plus S&H. Or, a weekend project for DIY types (looks simple enough).
Apparently there’s this new fangled device called a cellular phone.
One less vermin.
Thank you, folks! You did great!
Very cool! I just might build one. Need a place to put the Shotgun News anyway!
Oh Yeah! Plenty of time to know that this guy is dead set in his mind to make crazy around me and just give me a chance to get my hands on something lethal. If you hadn’t of gotten the jump on me and pissed me off you might have had a slim chance, but your ticket is about to be punched.
>> “Well now, Obama cant claim that if he had a son” <<
Sure he can!
If Obama had a son he would have held up at least ten banks by now, and died in the shoot-out at the eleventh.
Just a guess, but disabled the landline and they phoned for help on their mobile phone. But that’s just an uneducated guess.
Either that or the guy’s McGyver and repaired the phone line with some surplus belly button lint.
A cut phoneline can be repaired in a minute or two.
It doesn’t take a McGyver, it just takes an older person who is familiar with repairing things.
IMHO one of the best movies.
Honestly, I wouldn’t know where to start. Green-to-Green and Red-to-Red? Or vice versa?
Of course if they had VOIP, it’s an entirely different matter. Orange-to-Orange/White Stripe? It’s all so confusing.
I’m pretty sure you still need McGyver and belly button lint.
Authorities said the same thing about George Zimmerman.
Fortunately for the Mauderlys, there's zero chance the Schumers and Sharptons of this world will show up and pitch their tents on the corpse of an armed white prison escapee.
How sad this happened in their home, though. I can't imagine what it must be like to sit in your own kitchen after you shot a POS dead there. May they both live long enough to have peace and joy in their own home again.
That’s where common sense kicks in, which is why I stated that it would take an older person to fix it.
BTW, since it was cut, you would connect the same colors back together, just as they were before the cut.
It would probably be the Blue-White to Blue-White and then White-Blue to White-Blue, but that part doesn’t have to be known.
LOL! I heard that!
