So, here’s the scene, folks. We have two main characters in this story. Jonathon Kinsella, 40, a wanted felon, overall douchebag, and waste of oxygen. Then we have Corey Thompson, 36, a military veteran from the Iraq and Afghanistan war. It’s last Sunday night, and the place is Medford, Oregon.
Apparently, Jonathan-the-criminal was “attempting to flee the scene when he was arrested on outstanding warrants, including for burglary and assault,” and he made the big mistake of attempting to break into Corey-the-veteran’s home.
Corey warns Jonathan that he’s going to fire a warning shot if he doesn’t BACK OFF, and he does just that – with his AR-15. He doesn’t shoot the guy, he doesn’t harm anyone….and he’s only defending himself and his property – against a FREAKING WANTED FELON.
And then you know what happened?
Corey-the veteran “was charged with unlawful use of a weapon, menacing and reckless endangering. The veteran’s AR-15 was seized by police because they claim it was used in the commission of a crime.”
Right here in America, folks.
Now, I wonder – what would’ve happened if Corey had been a 119-pound defenseless-looking woman? Would the cops been a little less inclined to charge her with the same “menacing and reckless endangering?” Because if a WANTED FELON is forcing his way into MY home, he will not be as lucky as Jonathan-the-criminal.
But then again, I don’t live in Oregon.
