More details on the arrests of these scumbags who killed two guards in their escape. Never doubt, this nation remains safer because law-abiding Americans are armed.

A Tennessee homeowner held two escaped inmates wanted in the killing of two prison guards at gunpoint Thursday until authorities arrived and made the arrests.

Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Bill Miller said late Thursday that the homeowner caught Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose trying to steal his vehicle.

Miller says the escaped Georgia inmates had crashed a car while being chased by law enforcement and fled on foot into woods along Interstate 24 near the rural community of Christiana.

Miller says something alerted the homeowner that people were outside his home and he saw the men trying to steal his vehicle. The trooper says the homeowner held the two at gunpoint with a neighbor he called until the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Department could get there to arrest them.

Rowe and Dubose are accused of killing two guards on a prison transfer bus early Tuesday. Authorities had offered a $130,000 reward for information leading to their arrests.

    Splendid! The homeowner is the kind of neighbor I’d be glad to have living next door. #2A

    I read an article on these arrests in the Chattanooga Times Free Press. In it, Patrick Hale refutes claims made by Lt. Bill Miller, according to the Fox News report cited above. He says the convicts waved their shirts around and surrendered to arrest in his driveway shortly before the cops arrived. Hale intended to leave with his loaded gun(s?) and daughter in one of his cars and never drew a weapon. The convicts surrendered themselves next to a truck that Hale left a loaded shotgun in. Yikes!
