Attempted robbery turned bad husband

[CCW IN ACTION] Armed Robber Tries To Mug Wife — Doesn’t See Armed Husband Standing Behind Him

Advertisement

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA — An armed robber walked into a rental property agency and levelled his illegally obtained pistol directly at the head of the owner’s wife.  Little did he forget to see her husband walk out from behind a house with a gun of his own.  According to IndyStar, the Indianapolis Police arrived to find one Anthony Talley critically injured with gunshots to his body and head.  He was evacuated by emergency services to a nearby hospital where he remains in critical condition.

IMPD Sgt. Brian Gabe informed IndyStar that Talley, the alleged armed robber had multiple outstanding warrants for his arrest.  Amongst those charges include strangulation, dealing drugs, possession of a firearm without a license and resisting law enforcement.  So, this certainly wasn’t your friendly neighborhood mugger.

In either case, it’s unlikely after those gunshots that Talley will ever be in the business of robbing and hurting anyone ever again.

According to one neighbor, the neighborhood where the attempted robbery took place was actually considered a relatively safe place.  The attempt came as a surprise to many in the area who thought they lived in a place relatively immune to such struggles.  As is often the case for armed criminals — targeting the least suspecting used to be a pretty safe strategy.

With all of these concealed carriers around, that strategy may not be such a safe one after all.

Conceal Carry – 1, Armed Career Criminal – 0.

  • Good shooting! Justified. Why all good people need to be allowed to defend themselves equal or over what they are threatened with.

    And you wonder why every now and then a fed up citizen expresses a view that they should have killed him?

      I am no longer clear, why we have a criminal justice system, it certainly doesn’t work. Who let this POS walk.

      • Del Bancroft

        Not the Husband….

      • Redline

        Makes liberal judges feel good about themselves.

    • Munkymyk

      “Alleged armed robber.” Funny.

  • Wibbins

    I say CCW’ers that defend themselves should get the gun/knife that the attacker was going to use one them as a memento

    Give that man a job in the HVAC industry! He is certainly well skilled at ventilation……Well done sir!

  • Good…..

  • bpgagirl22VAnow

    Permanent brain damage now, must have been brain damaged before to think he could get away with that! Good for her husband!

    “Little did he forget to see her husband walk out from behind a house with a gun of his own. ”

    HUH?

    • Gitmo

      I shook my head at that sentence. This one is almost as bad: “As is often the case for armed criminals — targeting the least suspecting used to be a pretty safe strategy.”

    Hope he’s insured. The turd will most likely sue for loss of income!

  • Unfortunately, this thug will likely survive and be on the taxpayers’ dole for many years to come. Hopefully, as more and more of these stories make the rounds, these armed robbers and home invaders will have second thoughts before they cross that line..

    “In either case, it’s unlikely after those gunshots that Talley will ever be in the business of robbing and hurting anyone ever again.”

    Sure. Sure. He’ll be judged ‘disabled’ and WE’LL be paying his bills for the rest of his life.

      That may be true, but it looks like he would be facing time in prison even if he hadn’t been wounded in his botched attempt to rob/assault/kill someone.

      • SoIncredulous

        Seven years ago I would agree. Now he’ll probably get invited to the White House and receive requests to serve as a commencement speaker.

  • Jim

    If he was alive he will do more crimes but next time probably will shot his victems with out demanding money.
