Top cop shoots intruder dead at home

By McKeed Kotlolo | 2013-02-20 07:10:24.0 | COMMENTS [ 53 ]

A TOP policeman fatally shot an intruder and wounded another at his home in Pretoria yesterday.

The unidentified lieutenant- colonel is on leave and was sleeping at his Eldoraigne, Centurion, home in the morning when he heard someone at his front door.

The officer, who was with his wheelchair-bond mother at the time, immediately woke up and went to inspect. He found that the intruders had forced the door open and were already inside the house.

Captain Agnes Huma of the Wierdabrug police in Centurion said the officer shot one of them in the upper body, "killing him instantly and wounding another, who managed to escape".

Huma said the getaway car, a white Opel Corsa that was parked outside, immediately sped off during the shooting. No arrests were made but investigations were continuing, she said. -

they say the intruder must have threatened your life and loved ones so you give them a threat , its like this thing of firing a warning shot before you shoot a criminal who is armed and is not going to warn you when he fires its BS shoot the scumbag and then when he is down fire a warn shot who will say you didn't warn him

and your have to do it immediately after he fell right before his death because if you hesitate and rigor mortis kicked in you are in trouble or you can just let him touch it and help him shoot and then take it away and put it next to him simple like that
Hah! Uzoboshwa ukhuluma indaba engaka
LOLing at rigor mortis

Rigor takes a while. In this temp about 3 hours before it starts becoming an issue. More than enough time :)

It's sad that we no longer feel safe in our communities let alone in our own homes.If this criminals weer given harsher sentences and denied any bail or parole we would have less crime. I guess Oscar feared for his life and just acted on the spare of the moment without assessing the situation first.
