Two Michigan thugs viciously killed a family dog during a home invasion attempt. Now, the story has gone viral after the fed-up homeowner took brutal revenge on the punks.
Criminals are usually pretty stupid people, and one story coming out of Saginaw, Michigan is good proof of that. While many innocent people face home invasion attempts in our country every week, very few are prepared to fight back but that is exactly what police are saying happened in this case. After two thugs viciously killed a victim’s dog, it was time for them to pay.
According to local news source ABC12, the shocking home invasion attempt took place at approximately 11:45 p.m. on Vermont street on Sunday, May 27, 2018. Police said that 27-year-old Jermonii Perry, 23-year-old Aaron Pinkston, and another unidentified accomplice tried to carry out the armed home invasion but ended up getting the shock of their lives when the homeowner fought back. According to Lt. Dave Kaiser with Michigan State Police, the men tried to kick in the front door before shooting into the home.
One of the thugs reportedly fired a gun into the residence, killing the homeowner’s dog. This act of brutality would quickly come back to bite the suspects in the butt after the fed-up victim returned fire, striking two of the attackers and sending all three running from the residence like cowards. According to police, neither the homeowner or his family who were present in the home were not injured during the home invasion attempt.
When the homeowner shot back at the thugs, Perry was reportedly hit in the arm by one round and Pinkston was shot in the leg. In my opinion, this is a great example of good gun control. The homeowner, in fear for his life and obviously irate over his dog being killed, did what he had to do to protect his own life and the lives of his family members. It is truly sad that he wasn’t able to save his dog.
According to local news source WNEM, the homeowner had tried to warn the suspects that he had a gun and would use it if he had to. Because criminals are dumb, they would not listen to the victim and paid the price. After the three thugs fled the scene, police said that Perry was arrested early Monday, May 28, 2018, at a nearby hospital where he went to seek treatment for his gunshot wound.
Pinkston who police said did not seek treatment for his gunshot wound was arrested later on Monday. Investigators are still trying to locate the third man involved in the home invasion attempt. That man has not yet been identified by police. Now, the two thugs in custody will face the harsh reality of their criminal behavior.
The Saginaw County Prosecutor’s Office said Perry and Pinkston were arraigned Wednesday morning on charges of assault with intent to murder, first-degree home invasion, conspiracy to commit first-degree home invasion, felon in possession of a firearm, killing/torturing animals, and five counts of felony firearm. This should be enough to put these two thugs away for a significant amount of time.
Thanks to the homeowner, Perry and Pinkston were not allowed to continue their life of crime and to victimize other innocent people. While several home invasion in our country every week result in the victims being robbed, beaten, raped, or murdered, this story turned out much different because of the homeowner’s decision to be responsible for his own safety and for the safety of his family.
Once again, the 2nd Amendment pulls its own weight. Although the victim’s dog was sadly killed in the incident, the man and his family are alive and well after a brutal home invasion attempt. In my opinion, the homeowner’s family would likely be planning a funeral if he hadn’t fought back against his attackers. The truth is that he saved his own life and the lives of his family members and was able to do so because of the fact that he is a law-abiding gun owner.
