• Deceased Oklahoma Robbery Suspect’s Grandfather Says ‘Unfair’ to Shoot Grandson with AR-15

    By AWR Hawkins

    The grandfather of one of three suspects killed during the alleged March 27 home invasion in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, says the use of an AR-15 against the suspects was “unfair.”

    Breitbart News reported that the Broken Arrow homeowner’s 23-year-old son shot and killed three suspected home intruders with an AR-15. According to Tulsa World, Wagoner County Sheriff’s deputy Nick Mahoney said the three suspects “were wearing all-black clothing, masks, and gloves” and allegedly “forced their way into the home through a glass door in the back.” The homeowner’s son was asleep at the time and awoke to “loud bangs” as the suspects made entrance. The son grabbed the AR-15 and opened fire when the intruders walked into the hallway.

      Know what's unfair? Getting you house broken into and your sense of peace shattered.

      Know what's even more unfair? That these three armed hoodlums were against one person.

      The one person evened out the odds with the gun (it happened to be an AR) best suited for the situation he was forced to deal with.

      I feel bad for the kid.
      He probably suffered some hearing loss from shooting that rifle inside the house.

      "..He said the use of the AR-15 meant “his grandson didn’t have a chance.”..."

      I don't want to get shot, but if I did, I'd take my chances with a 55 grain .223 than a 1 oz slug, which is my home defense choice.

      A friend of mine got bashed in the eye socket/cheek bone with one hit of brass knuckles. His face didn't have a chance, he had to have 3 reconstructive surgeries. One of of them, if I remember, was so he wouldn't look at you cross eyed like the hunchback of Notre Dame.

      It is unfortunate there had to be death resulting from a very bad decision on the ignorant teens breaking into a house to steal or do bodily harm to anyone inside the house. It is obvious they were not expecting anyone to be home. BUT they live in Oklahoma where many homeowners have guns! If I were awoke to breaking glass and a door being forced open and saw 3 MASKED, DRESSED IN ALL BLACK, MEN coming down the hall towards me, there would not be enough time to call 911, or escape, the person in the house had no other choice than to defend himself. A hollow point self defense round in a pistol would have had the same consequence as the rifle round placed to neutralize a threat. The home resident was just a good shot. Sad situation, but IMO justified.

      "didn't have a chance."

      That's exactly the idea. You don't give an assailant a chance to hurt you.

      Agree with this. He should of used a 249 squad automatic weapon with a 200 round drum magazine.

      But LIFE is not fair. Maybe we can put little rubber bumpers on the sharp pointy ends of the .223 so it will be less killy?

      I agree with Grandpa. It was totally unfair. And if I ever have to get into a fight for my life, that is exactly how I want it. Totally one sided in my favor.

      You want a fair fight? Take up boxing. When masked men wake you up while breaking into your house there is only one rule. WIN.

      "... he didn't have a chance"....

      They all actually had a "chance".

      When they pulled up in their car, they had a chance to stop and think about what they were doing, and the very real possibility that things could go very, very badly.

      Even the get away driver girl stated in an interview; ".... their group, had done other robberies and carjackings, and gotten away with them, and figured that this was going to be just another one that they were going to do, and get away with ...."

      Aside from the above; I guess in the bizarro world (that is slowly inching its way onto our reality), criminals are supposed to be allowed (or given a decent chance by victims) = to be able to commit their violent armed robbery and get away with it.

      Fair is a place in Iowa one takes their pigs to be slaughtered.

      Grandson, whom I'm guessing didn't fall far from gramp's tree, played a stupid game, and won the stupid grand prize.

      Here's the yute's obit: http://www.reynoldsfuneralhomes.com/...Jacob-Redfearn
      People often commented on his good manners, and how polite and courteous he was.
      Yea, brass knuckles and/or a knife is real courteous.

      Jacob is survived by his brothers Jordan and Jonathan, his adoptive Mom Connie Saint, and husband Terry, guardian parents Wayne Smithart and Eric Price and father Michael L Redfearn and wife Jennifer, mother Shannon L Redfearn. ... as well as a multitude of step-brothers and sisters
      Sounds like a real stable home-life.

      The intruders knew they were doing wrong, they knew they were putting themselves and anyone else potentially involved at risk for serious injury. The resident of the home saw three people invading and reacted accordingly. **** GrandPa, his bull shit opinion, and the four useless pieces of shit who decided it was easier to take than to earn what they wanted. I hope the mastermind bitch pays dearly for her part.
