What’s worse, being a jerk burglar getting shot by a kid, or being mocked by him on television after the fact? LOL! Good job, kid!

Via Fox 8.

An 11-year-old boy who was home alone shot and injured a burglar, causing the suspect to “cry like a little baby.”

WVTM reported that it happened Wednesday morning after somebody broke inside a home in Talladega, Alabama.

Chris Gaither, 11, heard a noise and grabbed a nine-millimeter hand gun.

“When he was coming down the stairs, that’s when he told me he was going to kill me, f-you and all that,” Gaither said.

The boy started firing at the suspect, who made it out the front door with a hamper in his hand.

“I shot through the hamper he was carrying,” Gaither said. “It was a full metal jacket bullet. It went straight through the back of his leg. He started crying like a little baby.”

    This kid is lucky he was in Alabama and not New York otherwise he wouldn’t have had a gun and the crybaby punk criminal wouldn’t have been threatened.

    Terrific kid.

    Not happenstance that this was in Alabama. Some States (many?) would bring Child Protective Services and possibly local DA against his mother and step-father for leaving an 11 yr. old home alone with a loaded handgun. (Wasn’t CPS called about an 11 yr. old and sibling playing in their yard?) Good question for politicians; do you support this and would you fight back against any attempt to have gov’t turn on the family? Would hate to see a family that was defending its Life and Liberty be broken up by gov’t.
