Attempted robbers in southern California were no match for a 93-year-old retired plumber who took matters into his own hands, whipped out his shotgun and found justice with a “bang,” critically injuring one suspected burglar, reports indicate.
“I approached them to put them under citizen’s arrest,” Joe Howard Teague told reporters on Thursday according to ABC News.
The gang of suspects reportedly ignored his requests after kicking the elderly man’s door open and throwing things at him during the Wednesday incident.
“One of them came at me with a fishing pole,” he recalled. “I kept telling them, I have a shotgun with three shells in it, but I actually only had one. And they kept throwing stuff at me.”
“It was just like somebody comes to a gunfight with a pocketknife, you know.” the Moreno Valley man said.
The Riverside County Sherriff’s Department responded to a 911 call that Teague placed at around 12:30 a.m. where they found the wounded suspect.
According to authorities, 33-year-old Joseph A. Ortega, was transported to the hospital in critical condition. “Ortega, the injured suspect, was hospitalized in critical condition, authorities said.” I guess we could say that thanks to the Second Amendment and the well armed plumber the suspect is circling the drain. 😆😆 — Pathfinder11209 (@pathfinder11209) July 1, 2022 A relative said Teague was tired of the repeated burglary attempts and he was tired of waiting around for law enforcement to assist him.“He was tired because every time he calls the police, (they took) forever to come and assist him,” Oscar Malma told KABC. “He took the law into his own hands… He’s been working all his life and whatever little things he has, he’s (protecting).”“It happened once on Friday.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
