Madera Residents Rough Up Suspected Burglar (Yeah they DID!)
KMJ 580 ^ | April 16, 2014 | Unknown

Posted on 04/16/2014 9:41:23 AM PDT by Enterprise

"A group of Madera residents say they caught a burglar in the act. And they made him pay for his crime.

Madera Police responded to calls of a fight near North K St and 5th St around 5:20am Wednesday. When they arrived, officers found residents holding down the suspect, Jeremy Williams.

MPD says Williams, 37, has a long list of arrests and convictions and is currently on AB109 for receiving stolen property. Williams is being charged with burglary, violation of probation and posession of drug paraphernalia."

They "roughed" him real good!

Notes: Madera is in Central California, about 15 miles north of Fresno, the home of Free Republic.

The article refers to AB109. This is the law which has let bunches of felons out early to ease overcrowding. It's generic name is "prison realignment."

AB 109 – What is it and what does it mean to California counties?

My concern is with the residents. In the FUBO world we live in today, I wouldn’t be surprised if they too were arrested and if not, will they later be charged or even sued by the suspect?

Anything’s possible. But Madera is a conservative town and Madera PD is view as conservative. They wouldn’t have any sympathy for Mr. Burglar.

I think a communal beat down like this makes a bigger impression on a habitual thief than a successful standoff or minor wounding by a single homeowner. This guy isn’t going to go back there for revenge.

Good thing he wasn’t black, or they would all be in jail.

I think it is a heartwarming tale that these good citizens stepped in to rescue this man from repeatedly striking himself in the face with blunt instruments. In other communities, citizens would have stood by but here in Madera, they got involved and took the appropriate action.

I think they should all get medals and a month of free lunches at Chick-Fil-A.

If he goes back for revenge, he gets another beat down. Eat, sleep, beat, repeat. Eat, sleep, beat, repeat.

If I was writing the police report....

“I arrived on the scene and found the suspect badly in need of major medical attention. No one else was nearby and there were no witnesses as to why his teeth were knocked out and why he was bleeding profusely and....”

Thank God they only released the inmates which are not dangerous!

We get one of these stories about 5 times a week in CA. John and Ken on KFI 3-7Pm feature them on occasion.

It used to be in small town America that if the local criminal element crossed the railroad tracks and caused trouble the town elders would get together and have an “understanding” with the troublemaker.

Most likely this won't go to trial. It will be pled out. He might go back to prison for a little while. And then he'll get released again due to overcrowding. The little lecture the people gave him is the most significant justice he will get.

Winner!!

Act of Kindness. That may well go down with “Read my Lips, no new taxes”, “You didn’t build that”, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” and others as the stupidest political blunder ever.

Too bad it still isn’t so. Any given medium to large size community in California has too many criminals.

Not in Madera.

Were it Oakland or Frisco, yes the perp would be released, and the residents charged with aggravated assault.

There is a horror story coming out of Southern California about two men who were raping and murdering women. And the men had ANKLE BRACELETS while they were doing it! More deaths of innocent people thanks to the liberals!

Years ago, I saw a story on the news about an incident in Detroit. Neighbors caught a guy burglarizing a house, one of many in the neighborhood. They said he was injured when he slipped on the ice. When the newsbabe asked one citizen how he broke both arms, a leg, his nose and several ribs, the older gentleman looked into the camera and said “It was awfully slippery ice.”

“It used to be in small town America that if the local criminal element crossed the railroad tracks and caused trouble the town elders would get together and have an “understanding” with the troublemaker.”

My Dad said that in the small town he grew up in a guy raped a girl and was sent to jail.

When he got out of jail a group of guys caught him in an ally and shoved the biggest ear of field corn they could get up his a$$, WAY UP!

After a couple months in the hospital, the guy disappeared and was never seen again.

Forty years ago a friend of mine went to college in NYC. He lived in Brooklyn. He was of Sicilian descent as we’re most of his neighbors. Twice, while he lived there a body was discovered in the street next to a five-storey brownstone. In both cases it was someone who didn’t reside in the neighborhood and there were burglary tools found with the body. No one ever saw anything and the deaths were quite mysterious but everyone was certain of one thing. People really can’t fly but they can land.

LOL - gravity knows no favorites.

It does remind me of something I read in a book. It could have been Goodfellas. A suspicious person was in the neighborhood and tried to steal a purse from a lady. About 4 BIG Italian guys shoved him through a door in a three story apartment house, up the stairs, and off the roof. Generally, a pretty crime free neighborhood.

I’ve seen ears of field corn the size of a mans forearm and about as long.

And he was stomped pretty good before the discomforting event.

Exactly.

My stepdad told me that is how the old-timers would handle a situation like that

I’m surprised that Californians haven’t rediscovered lynch hanging of particularly nasty criminals. Even though this perp got roughed up, imagine the glee in the MSM if he was found dangling from a light pole?
