  • Handy info: when the cops tell you to put down your gun, do it

    A career criminal broke into a neglected-looking Far East Dallas home Thursday night thinking the homeowner had died and his belongings were there for the taking, police said.

    But the homeowner, William Keith Hall, wasn’t dead after all. He shot the burglar, Jerry Wayne Hale, then stood over him in an alley with a gun in hand, police said. Hall told Hale, 30, that he wanted to shoot him again.

    When police arrived, Hall pointed the 9 mm pistol — which had stopped working — at them and witnesses. Officers ordered Hall to drop his weapon and when he refused, they fatally shot the 57-year-old man.
    It's great when someone removes a bad guy from the gene pool, but when the cops get there and tell you to put down your gun, you need to do so and not point it at the cops.

    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.
