Wednesday morning feel good stories

| June 20, 2018

From Parkland, Washington;

A 16-year-old suspect will face burglary charges when he is released from the hospital — after a Parkland homeowner shot him in her home Saturday night.

Pierce County sheriff’s deputies [WTF?] woke up when her dogs started barking, heard a scratching sound then saw an intruder down the hallway. She grabbed a handgun and told the supsect to stop. When he kept coming, she fired a warning shot through a window but that didn’t deter the teen. She then shot him in the arm and called 911.

When deputies arrived, the intruder was screaming in pain. While waiting for deputies, the homeowner said the suspect kept yelling, “I’m so high!”

The deputies, one of whom is a trained military combat medic, applied tourniquets to the suspect’s arm until an ambulance could arrive.

From Norman, Oklahoma;

A couple took matters into their own hands when they discovered a burglar in their home, shooting him while police were on the way.

The couple woke up around 3:30 a.m. to the sound of Jerrold Allery Jr., the alleged burglar, rifling through cabinets in their home.

The woman pulled her handgun out of her dresser and loaded it in the dark. She said she’s had extensive training with the weapon after a previous home invasion.

However, she decided to give the gun to her military-trained husband, and the two confronted Allery together in the kitchen. They were determined not to be victims and to defend their home.

They said they told him to lay down but he refused. The woman called police and, on the 911 call, both can be heard ordering him to lay down.

Allery allegedly continued walking away from them, refusing to lay down, until he walked up the steps leading out of the sun room. There, he reached a door he couldn’t open while, below him, the couple continued to yell at him.

That’s when he turned around and, according to the affidavit, “began moving towards” the man with the gun. That’s when the homeowner shot Allery in the chest.

“Their safety was obviously at risk,” said Sarah Jensen with the Norman Police Department, “and they felt like the only way to ensure their safety was to fire the handgun.”

From Cocoa, Florida;

Jaleen Malik Howard’s last action to protect his apartment from three home invaders may have provided one of the biggest clues into who killed him.

Cocoa police said the 19-year-old — at home early Tuesday with his girlfriend and child — managed to exchange gunfire with a trio of men who stormed into his second-story apartment.

Bullets from a .40 caliber and 9 mm handgun pocked the wooden staircase and a nearby window in a chaotic scene, say police and neighbors.

One round from Howard’s gun struck and fatally wounded Rahkwon Shiem Yarveez Oquendo, 22, causing him to collapse in the street in front of the Peachtree Apartments on Peachtree Street east of U.S. 1. Howard was also shot, bloodied and dying in the stairwell in front of where he lived in Apt. 24 as neighbors attempted to comfort him.

      Roger. As the TAH Name Scrabble (Home Version)™® Whiz Wheel grabs a quick cup of coffee and reports for the morning PT formation, he spins out the following:

      Rahkwon Shiem Yarveez Oquendo (DRT) 66 x 3 = 198

      And just for Shits and Grins:

      Jaleen Malik Howard = 37 (multiplier applied at the reader’s discretion)

      Too bad Howard couldn’t shoot straighter and faster, he would be alive and we would have a better gene pool with 3 dead perps! imo

    RIP, Mr Howard, ya done good.

  3. Deplorable B Woodman says:

    Hey, Mr Parkland burgler teenager. Ya want high? I have a rope and a tall tree right here. I’ll give ya “high”, but I guar-an-damn-tee ya won’t like it. But you WILL get to show off some fancy mid-air dance steps…….for a few minutes, anyway.

    • Roger in Republic says:

      Parkland, just outside Tacoma, has some very old and therefor very tall, Douglas Fir trees that could come in handy as makeshift hanging trees. You would need a very long hunk of rope to hit the lowest branches.

  4. Ex-PH2 says:

    Those break-ins all make me wish I could find some of those old slip-locks for doors that were installed in Chicago apartments built in the 1920s. If you’re home, they were the best burglar protection ever.

    RIP, Mr. Howard.

    • Frankie Cee says:

      I traded in my old “slip on locks” for a dozen rounds of .38 SPL hollow point, cross marked, ammo. 6 rounds in my .38 wheel gun and 6 rounds in its speedloader.
