Couple Make Burglar Clean Their Home

What would you do if you came home to find your house ransacked, and worse, that the burglar was still inside?

A couple from Montgomery, Alabama, did what some people might find unthinkable - they made the burglar clean up the mess he had made at gunpoint while they waited for the police to arrive.

“Tears just rolled down my face as I walked in and saw everything gone and piles of trash all over my home,” Mrs. McKinnon told her local newspaper the Montgomery Advertiser.

When her husband walked into another room to check what was missing he came face to face with the burglar, who was wearing one of Mr. McKinnon’s hats.

“My husband Adrian caught the thief red-handed in our home. And what is even crazier, the man even had my husband’s hat sitting right on his head,” Mrs. McKinnon said.

Mr. McKinnon held suspect Tajuan Bullock at gunpoint and made him sit down until he decided what to do.

“We made this man clean up all the mess he made, piles of stuff, he had thrown out of my drawers and cabinets onto the floor,” Mrs. McKinnon said.

When the police arrived the work-shy burglar had the cheek to complain to them - about having to clean up his mess at gunpoint.

That is awesome! If these trouble makers had to clean up all of the messes they made-some might not continue in their chosen profession of stealing! We need to make these criminals pay in a way that will make them want to stop doing it. This might be one way for you ger mischief makers. Career criminals may need a different deterrant.

Actually, it seems to be the norm for crooks to complain or try to lay blame elsewhere to "justify" their actions. (Case in point: the burglar who got himself trapped in a garage for a week and had to subsist on dog food until the owners returned - he tried to sue for damages! There are lots more cases like this, usually involving crooks who get stuck, injured or locked in via their own darn fault.)

I think a "rules do not apply to me" mentality is a prerequisite for becoming a criminal.

Well if it were here in Michigan, they wouldn't have gotten in any trouble if they would have shot him.

Maybe he could sue them for making him work without minimum wage, after all he was doing crime cleanup, and crime cleanup companies get paid a lot.

Lol... I can't believe that thief had the nerve to actually complain?!? Does he not realize how lucky he is that they didn't just shoot him in the face?
How much do you wanna bet some sleezeball lawyer is gonna represent the thief in sueing the ppl he robbed & the cop that laughed for humiliation or some stupid crap.
