Rough Justice

Great story. The burglar involved stole the home-owner's handgun, among other items, but that didn't stop him getting his just desserts.

A Red Bird-area homeowner turned the tables on a gun-toting burglar Wednesday night, taking the weapon away from him and beating him up with it.

The suspect, identified by police as 21-year-old Marquis D. Anderson, ended up in a local hospital.

"When the police got him, he wasn't able to talk," said Steven Flowers, a neighbor whose home was also burglarized. "He got beat bad. I wish it had been me [who delivered the beating]. I would have done the same thing."

And here's a line that you just have to love seeing in the press-

When police arrived, they found the unconscious burglar in a pool of blood on the hallway floor.

Note too that he stole one handgun from one home and was trying to steal two more. So much for gun laws that make it harder for the law-abiding to purchase firearms.
