When an ex simply doesn’t get it, things could turn from bad to worse in an instant. In this case, it seems as though this woman’s ex-boyfriend was trying to break into her apartment. Well, she wasn’t having any of that.
Local news reports;
Henry Johnson was treated at a local hospital after his ex-girlfriend shot him as he allegedly broke into her home.
Pensacola Police Department spokesman Mike Wood said the woman was inside her home at Pensacola Village Apartments on East Fairfield Drive at about 5:30 a.m. when Johnson broke through the front door.
The woman shot Johnson once in the leg, and police arrived soon after, according to PPD. Police questioned Johnson soon after, and Wood said the female won’t face any charges for the incident.
As a result, Johnson is behind bars without bail, and let’s hope he stays there for a long time. I can’t see any viable reason to let this guy go, as he’s an obvious threat to at least one person in this world.
And if a restraining order is placed if he’s let out, that should do a whole lot of good. Luckily, this woman was armed –and remains armed– to fend off against people like Johnson who just can’t take a hint.
It’s a bad situation to be in, but choosing to own and use a firearm for self-defense is such an important one, and it does indeed save lives each and every day.
Had this man successfully entered the apartment, who knows what would have happened to his intended victim. Love can be a scary thing, and it can bring out the worst in people. It’s a good day when we don’t see that ‘worst’ come out, simply because it never has the chance.
Exit, stage right, armed citizen who refuses to be a victim.
