George Rayburn and his son were listening to a police
scanner radio in their River Rouge, Mich., home when they heard that
officers were chasing a trio of muggers toward their address.
Rayburn grabbed a .357 Mag. revolver and leveled it at one of the
lawbreakers, who was attempting to scale a wall into the Rayburn
backyard. Only after police arrived and arrested the mugger, did
Rayburn, a Marine combat veteran, reveal that he is almost blind.
