Notorious Mexican Shower Gang strikes again

From The Smoking Gun:

After breaking into an Oregon residence last night, Timothy Chapek, 24, barricaded himself in a bathroom after the owner unexpectedly arrived home. Chapek, you see, was worried that Hilary Mackenzie might be armed (or that her barking German Shepherds could prove problematic).

So he called 911 seeking help. “I just broke into a house and the owner came home,” Chapek told a police operator. “You broke into a house?” the surprised operator responded. “I think she’s got guns,” Chapek added.

Simultaneously, Mackenzie called police to report that there was an intruder in her Portland home (she told an operator that Chapek had reported he was taking a shower). . .

According to a Portland Police Bureau report, Chapek told cops he was “taking a shower, nothing more.” Mackenzie reported that none of her belongings were out of place and that Chapek had “earlier made some utterance…that ‘Mexicans’ had kidnapped him and put him in the bathroom.”

These Mexicans have also been known to force people to brush and floss and on at least one occasion they invaded a suburban San Francisco home and forced two children to pick up their toys.

Seriously, this housebreaker is a true and genuine moron - but he did have the sense to fear an armed home owner.  The woman didn't even have to have a gun in fact. It was enough that the idiot believe that she was armed to make him soil his diapers and beg the cops to come and rescue him.

This illustrates two key points.  One is that there is no better way to protect yourself than to have a gun (and the knowledge of how to use it).  The other is that criminals fear armed citizens far more than they fear the police.
