Elderly Man Kills Burglar - Burglar's Family Says He Should Have Been WarnedAn armed elderly man in Dallas shot and killed a suspected burglar after finding him trying to break into his Dallas home this week. However, he was also forced to defend his actions after the would-be robber’s family showed up at his home.
The homeowner, a repeat burglary victim, found 33-year-old Deyfon Pipkins attempting to climb in the house through the window and fired at least one shot at the criminal, hitting his target.
Once police identified the suspect as Pipkins, officers notified his family. Some of those family members showed up at the house and expressed their anger at the homeowner for not issuing a “warning.”
“He could have used a warning,” Lakesha Thompson, Pipkins’ sister-in-law, said. “He could have let him know that he did have a gun on his property and he would use it in self-defense.”
I know that they were upset at their loss but the comments by the family burn me up. The burglar had 18 pages of warnings/chances in his criminal history. Apparently he doesn't heed warnings or accept 2nd, 3rd, or any number of chances. Well, he's had his last one now.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

He has already killed once in self defense. The family might want to take that as a warning.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

A) The suspect should have warned the victim he was going to burglarize the victim's house.
B) Warning hell, he cured him.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Fuck the suspects family. Maybe they shouldn't have bred a shithead. With any luck they will get shot next time they break into a place.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Warnings wouldn't have helped. A dead relative is a huge "warning" to the rest of his shithead family that this guy's house is not one to be taken lightly. They didn't heed that warning and showed up anyway bitching about their dead idiot burgling relative. They clearly have trouble with the whole concept of "warnings" as a family."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

The POS decided to live by preying on others. Good riddance. If his family had loved him, they'd have kicked his ass years ago. I wonder how many of them he stole from first, and they're conveniently forgetting about it?\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

Hell... he doesn't need a special warning. There's this thing called the law book, that it seems the former mouth-breathing knucklehead had acquired some practical familiarity with, which says "don't go into other people's houses without permission... This being Texas, ya jist might get yourself shot dead" if at greater length...Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.
