An Alabama woman shot and killed a young man when he tried to break into her home, saying his car had broke down.
Mikel Steven Smith, 18, was reportedly armed with a knife when he tried to break into a home located in the Booth community, close to Prattville, WSFA reports.
He knocked on the door and tried to gain entrance by saying he needed help that he was broke down, Autauga County Chief Deputy Joe Sedinger told the station.
Tell him to use his Bammy Phone to call E. H0lder for help.
I would note this....being originally from Bama....over the past couple of years....home invasions are on the increase...and almost a daily event in some part of Alabama. I think drug usage (especially meth)...is creating a mental state where you think you can get away with just about anything.
In this case....one less guy we need to worry about.
I don’t agree. I live in eastern Elmore County. This is an extremely rare occurrence. The fact is, almost everyone around here has a gun or guns (usually guns). Meth or Crack heads busting in get shot, as in this story, so it would have to be an increase of suicides, not break-ins, LOL.
Seriously though, this is the first one I’ve heard of in at least a year.
Nice! There should be bounty for such incidents.
........if these are the facts, good for mom!
............the article at the Daily Mail though says in it’s headline he was killed. Later, in the same article he was “arrested”.
I know things are crazy these days but I think it is still not likely we are arresting dead men. So, which is it?
It’s too bad that he’ll be in Hell for eternity, but at least no more innocent people will be his victims on Earth.
Ah yes, the old bringing a knife to a gun fight mistake, that’ never works out well for a perp with the shive.
You're right. Just think of how much tax payer's money this lady saved by taking this career criminal out before he spent a lifetime committing crimes, in court, or in prison.
Another man was arrested in connection with this case
according to the story at the Vid
....And just how do you know? Are you privy to something everyone else isn't in on?
Not playing Devil's advocate. I would have shot the bastard too, but I wouldn't pretend to know what would become of him in the afterlife, assuming there is a such thing.
She should have reasoned with him, because we all know people who forced there way into a house can be reasoned with. No gun was necessary, he was lost and confused.....
Her apartment was broken into and I got a call, with the cops in the back ground, “Daddy I Need a Gun!” I bought her a S&W 357 and she got a CC.
A few months later I got another call, “Daddy I was broken into when I got home, I pulled my gun. You never saw a black man run so fast.”
I called the County Sherriff to thank him and from then on she was known as “Daddies Girl” to all of the cops.
At least his statement is now true; good riddance. The world does not need the sort of person who would force his way into a home.
Eric Holder now wants gun tracking bracelets.
Just tell the scumbag who is breaking down your door that your gun is on the charger and he needs to wait a while until the little light stops flashing.
...bless her heart!
You’ll only have my bracelet when you pull it off my cold dead wrist. Then you can pry out the little RFID chip and tape it to the gun.
She should get a medal for marksmanship.
The poor boy just wanted a Arizona Tea and a bag of Skittles there was no need to shoot him. (sarc)

It was obvious not the last act of a Christian person.
“Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Same problem in GA especially Atlanta area. Lots of home invasions. We have people skulking around our yard and house all the time.
My best friend had to confront 2 people in her kitchen about a year ago. This is a nice neighborhood too. So they moved about 1.5 miles down the road to a new neighborhood. A couple of mos ago somebody got in their kitchen late at night. She and her husband ran down stairs with the shotgun but the perps had already taken off.
Our neighbor’s wife got followed all the way home from Walmart recently by 2 guys. She called her husband on the way and he was waiting in the front yard with his 9MM when she drove up. The perps took off.
this is just the beginning. Its going to get much worse as things continue to devolve.
Yeah...and what was the house doing with the knife, anyway.
I love a happy ending
“She and her husband ran down stairs with the shotgun”
I applaud your friends, but based solely on your descriptions I would say that they should perhaps take a little more care not to give the dirtbags a free shot.
“Yeah...and what was the house doing with the knife, anyway.”
It was eating shoots and leaves.
Uh, in New Hampshire, if zombies are skulking around and you are confronting uninvited guests in your kitchen, your neighborhood is not what we call "nice".

You are lucky. You don’t live in MLK central and illegal alien heaven on earth. Here there is no safety in the nicest of neighborhoods. You make your own safety.
Our in laws live in Berkely Hills Country Club and last Friday night somebody tried to kick in their boat door in the middle of the night. Fortunately they are armed and their son who is a personal trainer and former bouncer was staying there. He went after the perps with a baseball bat. I guess they took off running at the sight of him. I would. :-)
.32 caliber. Boom is not the right word.
Mat 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
Also, the clown was violating “thou shalt not steal,” and likely was thwarted from “thou shalt not murder.” Not to mention the declaration that unrepentant “sorcerers” shall swim the lake of fire (Rev. 21:8 and 22:15). “Sorcerers” is the Greek “pharmakeus,” and what’s being condemned is actually unrepentant drug users.
Thanks, I’ll re-read.
Not sure about FL laws. There may be a problem with this one.
Does FL allow party hunts?
Stand your ground covers this one.
