According to the San Antonio Express-News, the suspect allegedly tried to break in through a window in the very room where the homeowner happened to be asleep. The female homeowner heard the suspect trying to make entry into her home, armed herself, and fired at least two rounds. Police arrived in time to transport the alleged intruder to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The woman was in her mid-30s and the alleged intruder was his mid-30s.
Police also discovered the alleged intruder’s 7-year-old son at the scene. San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said of the young boy, “We’re gonna get help for him.”The man must have been either desperate, or depraved, to bring his son along with him when he attempted to perform a "Home Invasion" in an occupied dwelling.
Either that, or he was trying to "break his kid in" on the Family Business.
Stupid Is As Stupid Does:
Perhaps he was as stupid as he sounds.
It's gonna be hard for the child to work through all of this. I doubt if he really understands it.
I know I don't.
Probably, it's going to be difficult for police to explain to the lad that "Your Father Was As Dumb As A Box Of Rocks, And We Expect You To Turn Out Better".
It's worth a try, I guess.
I have no great expectations. Stay tuned about seven years from now for The Rest Of The Story.
