Home Invader Incarcerated After Female Victim Gets The Better of Him

Do go to the link (Kingsport police blog) and read the whole thing. Not much went right for this would-be kidnapper?/robber/homeinvader, happily.

It sounds like a Benny Hill skit. "rlol"

I'll bet he is having lots of fun explaining to his cell mates, how he was foiled in his crime spree.

Good for her. I'm sure it's sad having to deal with that from a "longtime family friend". I assume that if she had a gun he'd have been dead before she removed his mask and identified him. This man had a handgun on him, so he clearly had prepared himself to do harm. He should be locked up for a long time, and she should upgrade her home defense weapon from a baseball bat to a firearm.

This happened in the same county back in East Tennessee where I grew up (closer to Canada than to Memphis).

Y'all gotta love hillbilly justice!
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.

Back in the old days before CHL and MPA I always had a softball, glove and bat in my car.
