A 55-year-old Florida woman was horrified when she was awakened by the sound of someone breaking in through her sliding glass door. Moments later, the thug who broke into her home got a dose of brutal karma as he realized his big mistake too late.
Every week, in towns across our country, violent thugs commit horrific home invasions, where victims are left beaten or brutally murdered. Thanks to her years of training as a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent, 55-year-old Maria Otero was not about to be a victim featured one of those tragic headlines. The moment she realized someone was breaking into her home, she armed herself and got ready for a fight.
When she heard the glass breaking, Otero had no idea how many assailants were inside her home or what weapons they might have had. According to local news source WPLG, 29-year-old Robert Young III was the man who broke into Otero’s home at approximately 1 a.m. on Monday, February 12, 2018. Police have not yet said whether Young was armed, but one thing that was certain is that Otero was ready to take out the trash.
According to Breitbart, Otero confronted Young as he entered her home and quickly turned him into a human sprinkler. Police said that Otero shot the thug several times with her government-issued .40-caliber Smith & Wesson, killing him instantly. Young’s decision to break into Otero’s home that morning would be the last time he victimized an innocent person.
Sgt. Carlos Rosario, a spokesman for the Miami-Dade Police Department, said that officers responded to the victim’s home in the 9300 block of Southwest 72nd Avenue to find Otero unharmed and Young as dead as a doornail. Police said they had no indication that the victim knew the intruder.
Sadly, home invasion stories often end with the coroner’s van showing up to retrieve the body of a victim. This time, the only body that needed to be taken to the morgue was Young’s. He picked the wrong house to rob and paid the price.
Customs and Border Protection officials said the agency is conducting a joint investigation with the Miami-Dade Police Department into the home invasion which resulted in one of their federal agents killing an intruder. Maria Otero was reportedly placed on administrative leave until the investigation is finished.
It won’t be long before Robert Young’s family and friends are posting on social media or giving interviews to the liberal news outlets to talk about what a wonderful and kind person he was. I’m sure they will spin the story that he was shot in the back with his hands up and that he would never have hurt anyone in that house. It’s funny how those who knew the dead thug always find a way to honor their memory instead of just admitting that the person was a violent dirtbag.
We can also expect the mainstream media to vilify Maria Otero simply because she’s a gun-owner, a federal agent, and a thug-killer. The truth of the matter is that Otero deserves a medal and a tremendous amount of gratitude from others in her community who don’t have to worry about Robert Young III breaking into their homes at 1 a.m. In addition, taxpayers should thank Otero for putting a violent thug in the ground and for saving them the cost of providing medical care, food, and housing for a parasite.
Once again, the 2nd Amendment pulls its own weight. A 55-year-old woman from Florida was confronted by an intruder in her own home and was able to defend herself and her property. If Otero had not been armed, it might very well be her own family shopping for a coffin this week and planning a funeral. She didn’t do anything to deserve being Young’s next victim. As the mainstream media spins this story, remember, Young is solely responsible for his own death.
