Two Home Invasions, Two Outcomes.

Witnesses tell San Antonio police two men broke into an apartment unit by breaking down a door, but someone inside the apartment opened fire on them.

The men attempted to run, but one was shot several times, San Antonio police said.

The men managed to get into a car, but were met by SAPD officers who responded to the scene.

At gunpoint, the teens stole property from Antequera and then forced both victims inside the home through the rear-sliding glass door.

Antequera entered the home first, but when Perez entered, he attempted to close the sliding glass door behind him. Police said the teens fired several shots into the home, shattering the glass door and striking Perez, then fled in an unknown direction.

Doctors determined Perez’s spine was severed and he would be paralyzed from the waist down, according to Miami-Dade police. He is listed in critical but stable condition. Antequera was not hurt

Home Invasions MUST be treated as cases with extreme repercussions against the residents. While there are cases which were “simple” burglaries in which the bad guy thought nobody was home, I believe that most Home Invasions are done knowingly that somebody is inside the house and that meant deadly force will be used to subdue the inhabitants.

Home is a place of relaxation and rightly so. But at the same time we have to be prepared to react fast and violently if the need arises. The “Just give them what they want” line has been proven deadly wrong too many times and it is not even a bad joke anymore.

Be smart, be ready. Don’t fight fair.

  1. Miquel, I totally agree that there seems to be an attitude pushing compliance towards criminals. I believe Jeff Cooper said it best as he often does,

    “We continue to be exasperated by the view, apparently gaining momentum in certain circles, that armed robbery is okay as long as nobody gets hurt! The proper solution to armed robbery is a dead robber, on the scene.”

  2. Anyone entering other peoples’ homes by force must be assumed to be willing and READY to kill the occupants. And “go along with them” should have died on 9/11 and again with Newsom and Christian.

    Someone who is willing to take THINGS is a short step away from taking LIVES.
