In 10 Seconds Two Thugs Learn Why Stealing In Texas Is A Bad Idea
Conservative Post ^ | 6/16/14

A Texas mother of two has a good samaritan to thank for stopping these would be robbers from getting away with her purse.

As she was leaving a shopping center the two suspects tried to grab her purse from their car and ended up dragging her down the lot a bit. At that moment a stranger saw this happening and jumped into action pulling his concealed carry weapon on the criminals and stopping them.

Once the thugs saw a gun they immediately stopped.

Brenda Vasquez, witnessed the whole incident and was interviewed by KHOU tv; “This lady opens her car door, grabs the woman’s purse and they reverse. While they’re trying to reverse, the lady is holding on to her purse still, chasing them all the way to the middle, And that good Samaritan came out, drew his weapon and scared them. And that’s when he pulled them out of the car.”

The good samaritan then help them on the ground at gun point until the police arrived.

As reported by TheBlaze;

The male and female suspects, identified as 34-year-old Shamarion Diana Brooks and 48-year-old Jesse Leroy Grace were arrested by the Houston Police Department. Brooks was charged with felony possession of an unlawful substance and robbery by threat, while Grace saw felony charges of unauthorized use of motor vehicle and robbery by threat.

Neither the mother nor the man who Vasquez called a “hero” were identified. Police department spokesman John Cannon told TheBlaze the citizen who held the suspects until officers could arrive is a witness in the case, which is why his identity is not being released.

“Hmmm, “Shamarion and Leroy”.

They are both ‘Amish,” but it appears that the guy with the gun is too ( or perhaps Hispanic). Anyway, way to go!

Another "aspring hip-hop artist"

At 48 he's more of a Soul Train wannabe than a member of the hip hop generation. Guess this is what a man turns to in his later years when Don Cornelius tells him he just doesn't have the moves. Well.. so did the guy in the Houston parking lot. He's still got no moves.

Shamarion

Tells me all I need to know. Although I could have made a pretty good guess without the name.
