The peasants are fighting amongst themselves

Watch a boorish Texas reporter as she buttonholes a 70-year-old in a parking lot. She stalks, detains, and harasses the poor guy, after he performed the public service of shooting two burglars over the span of a couple weeks when he suffered his 44th and 45th break-ins.

Update: The television station has been embarrassing itself trying frantically to get this clip off the net, because the next question after one watches it is likely to be "Who advertises with KDFW, and why am I doing business with them?"

Thanks to reader mariposa for telling us that the original Youtube post was pulled. Here's LiveLeak.



The security at the Fox station where the (now suspended) reporter works is doubtless armed with Nerf bats.

HT Captain.

Poor old guy. Not like he had any choice. They would have killed him, and he would be just been another satistic. This is what happens in society, when governments give criminals more rights than law abiding citizens.

If that man were to have done that here in Canada, he would have been thrown in prison and the burglars would have had a goernment funded monument built in their honour.

Does anyone know why the video is no longer available?

"This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by KDFW FOX 4 TV"

Copyright, sure that's the reason it's not available. Not "we f***ed up allowing this to air in the first place."

Actually, I think the reporter did everyone a favour. Now, maybe more folks in his area will go out and buy themselves a shotgun, and not be afraid to use it in their own defence.
