Thank God this unnamed homeowner lives in Wesley Chapel, Florida, and not St. Louis, Missouri, where self-defense is now apparently a crime.
Early Friday morning, the unnamed homeowner killed two criminals after three black suspects reportedly attempted to break into his home.
“According to Sheriff Chris Nocco [of the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office], the homeowner was playing video games alone when he heard glass shatter in the back of his house,” local station WOFL reported Saturday.
“Deputies said the homeowner grabbed a gun and saw the first suspect down a long hallway wearing a dark ski mask and dark clothing and pointing a gun at him. The homeowner fired and the suspect went down.”
The unnamed homeowner then observed a second suspect pointing his gun at him, so he fired again.
“At some point, a suspect fired his gun, Nocco said. When the second suspect went down, the victim saw a third suspect down the hallway, so he fired again and the suspect fell,” WOFL’s report continued.
It was at this point — and not a moment sooner, luckily for him — that his gun jammed, so he hurried off to grab another one. Talk about being strapped.
“When he returned to the hallway, he noticed that the third suspect was gone. That’s when he got a phone call from a neighbor who said he was holding the third suspect outside at gunpoint to keep him from getting away,” WOFL reported.
After deputies reportedly arrived sometime before 1:00 am, the first two suspects, Luis Casado and Khyle Durham, were pronounced dead.
They may be seen below courtesy past mugshots:
“These two individuals have very violent criminal histories — extremely violent,” Nocco reportedly said of the two.
The third suspect meanwhile was transferred to a hospital and is expected to face second-degree murder charges over his involvement in the burglary that had led to his cohorts’ deaths, as well as a home invasion robbery charge.
Authorities believe the robbery may have been related to the homeowner’s habit of posting photos of his gun collection to social media.
“We believe there was a relationship, there was some type of known entity between the victim and the suspects. So, this is not a totally random situation. This is an isolated, targeted situation,” Nocco reportedly said.
As for the homeowner, he’s extremely unlikely to face any charges, given as this is Florida, not Missouri, and in Florida the notion of self-defense means something.
In St. Louis, on the other hand, a middle-aged couple, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, are being targeted by authorities — first with an ongoing investigation, and now with a raid — for the crime of simply aiming weapons at dangerous left-wing extremists who’d trespassed onto their property last month.

The targeting of the couple in St. Louis has been driven by the intersectionality/Black Lives Matter cult and religion, a radical movement that has a tendency of painting the bad guys as the good guys, and vice versa.
“I am alarmed at the events that happened over the weekend, where peaceful protestors were met by guns and a violent assault. We must protect the right to peacefully protest, and any attempt to chill it through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated,” St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner said in a statement after the incident seen abvoe.
“My office is currently working with the public and the police to investigate these events. Make no mistake: We will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights, and will use the full power of Missouri law to hold people accountable.”
See how she portrayed the dangerous extremists as “peaceful protestors” while deriding the couple for the alleged “use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights?” It was the exact opposite of what had happened.
“A mob of at least 100 smashed through the iron gates of Portland Place, destroying them, rushed towards my home where my family was having dinner outside and put us in fear for our lives,” McCloskey had revealed to local news station after the incident occurred.
“One fellow standing right in front of me pulled out two pistol magazines, clicked them together and said, ‘You’re next.’ That was the first death threat we got that night. We were told that we would be killed, our home burned and our dog killed. We were all alone facing an angry mob.”
Yet the authorities sided against him and his wife. Luckily for the unnamed homeowner in Wesley Chapel, the same is extremely unlikely to happen to him.
