Teen Shoots Robbers


A Fountain teenager who woke up to the sounds of robbers in his home says he didn't hesitate to shoot the men before they took off with an IPod.

Those men are now currently hospitalized for treatment of gunshot wounds.

19–year–old Cody Buckler says he was asleep at about 11 p.m. Sunday when he heard unfamiliar voices in the living room. He says he heard someone tell a child in the house that he was a police officer, so he crept down the hall and saw two men who were wearing masks, hats, and gloves.

Buckler then went back to his bedroom, retrieved a 12–gauge shotgun and shot both of them. Police say both men had semiautomatic handguns

    He had every right to shoot those intruders. Good for him. If more people protected themselves in this manner i doubt home invasion crimes would be so prevelent.

    I feel that a tax rebate is not a long term answer,tax cut or over haul possibly, however more pressing issues are high fuel costs, high medical costs, high insurance costs for businesses and individuals. It seems to me all of these problems are all contributing the a possible recession. Lawmakers and Government personnel need to start addressing these issues with real changes, not just covering them up with short term solutions.
