A shocking video has emerged out of Houston showing one fed-up Texas man heroically dispersing looters at a local store during the floods. Now, the video has gotten national attention after what the ex-SWAT officer is seen doing that had the thieving thugs scattering like roaches.
According to the New York Post, the video was uploaded to social media on Wednesday, August 30, 2017. The viral clip, which features some strong language, shows a Houston man who proclaims to be an “ex-f–king SWAT deputy” who isn’t afraid to “cut yo ass in half.” From the looks of it, the shotgun wielding hero is
From the looks of it, the shotgun wielding hero is dead serious as he sends looters running from the Little York Food Market in Houston, Texas. Lucky for us, a couple of women witnessing the incident caught it all on camera and posted it online.
The epic video, which was also uploaded to YouTube, is good proof why people say, “Don’t mess with Texas.”
The armed citizen can be seen yelling as the video clip begins. “Hey, don’t you go back in that store! I’m telling you one time. I’m not scared to shoot ya,” the man can be heard shouting at the thugs. “Put it down!” he says, yelling at a group of looters. “I’m an ex-f–king SWAT deputy! I will cut yo ass in half. Don’t go in that store no goddamn more!”
As the clip continues, several looters run from the store as the Houston hero explains to the women recording why he’s taking a stand against their lawless behavior. “I’m protecting the community where I live,” he says. “I grew up in this area, I’m a former law enforcement officer, so I understand what the law says. If you’re looting, you’re stealing. It’s a violation of Texas law and federal law in the time of a catastrophe…Constitution says you’ve got the right to bear arms,” he said.
The two women recording the event praised the man for his bravery. “They looting the stores and this man out here is trying to literally protect the community,” one of the women said. The other woman who appears to be her mother asked, “Is he for real?” To which the younger woman replied, “Yeah, he got a real-ass shotgun in his hand. Lord Jesus. This shit is getting real.” The woman filming the video adds, “They are not playing out here…This man out here with his shotgun, y’all. This is not a game.”
The shotgun wielding hero continues to tell the woman filming him that the community needs men to step up and protect the helpless, while law enforcement focuses on rescuing flood victims. “It’s a shame,” he says. “We need more real men out to step up and protect where you live. This storm is temporary…It don’t make no sense that these guys out here, too lazy to get a damn job, the energy they using to rob — they need to use that energy to rescue people,” he said.
Houston Police Cheif Art Acevedo has issued several warnings to looters, telling them that they will serve mandatory jail time if they are caught. My hat is off to this true American patriot seen in the video. He is absolutely right when he says that his community needs more men to stand up against the lawless thugs who are taking advantage of others who are in crisis. Our prayers and support continue to go out to those affected by Hurricane Harvey and the tropical storm which continues to flood many parts of Texas and Louisana.
