You Go Grandpa!!!  That’ll teach these punks to mess with a 91-year old.  When the drunken burglar came messing around a Lakeworth man’s home in the early morning hours, his dog went into action and cornered the home burglar while grandpa grabbed his gun and cell phone.

He immediately called the police for backup while he held the intruder at gunpoint.  One thing - grandpa forgot his pants!  He was stark naked.  But who cares - he’s 91, a WWII vet who probably served his country well, and survived a criminal burglary.  Naked or clothed - I like his attitude on crime control!

Dog + Gun + Security System = Priceless Home Protection!!

Here’s story and what the naked 91-year old went through Courtesy of Palm Beach

LAKE WORTH — A burglar early this morning clambered over a backyard fence on a quiet block on the city’s west side. He picked the wrong house.

He made it maybe a couple of steps before Rettt the dog, a mixture of Rottweiler and Doberman pinscher, charged, tearing the intruder’s shirt from his back in a growling, ferocious attack.


This gave homeowner Robert E. Thompson, 91, time to jump out of bed, grab his gun, a .38-caliber revolver loaded with hollow-point bullets, and to phone the police.

Then he went out back to let the guy know how he felt about home invaders. He raised the gun and shouted out in the darkness. He thought there might be three or four of them. He didn’t care.

“The funny part was I didn’t have any clothes on,” said Thompson, a World War II veteran who was awarded a Purple Heart during combat tours in Europe. “I was standing out there with a .38 in my hand, and I was stark naked.”

Already terrified of the dog, the burglar, who looked to be no older than 20, took a step toward the nude 91-year-old, and that was it for Thompson.

As I’ve said many times, dogs are an excellent early warning system.  And you can’t beat having a firearm to protect yourself with, but having a home security system would’ve blown the eardrums off the intruder, possibly alerted the neighborhood, and notified the police for help.
