"The truth of the matter is people are tired of these thugs
breaking the law. They're taking care of business," said Orange
County, Florida, Sheriff Kevin Beary following the death of a
16-year-old bandit who tried to rob citizen John T. Pride at a pay
phone. Instead of cash, Pride, who has a carry permit, pulled out
his .380 pistol and fatally shot his assailant, marking the eighth
time in 18 months that a criminal had been killed by his intended
victim in Central Florida. Most of the defensive shootings have
taken place in people's homes. "I've always been one that believes
you have a right to protect your property," Beary said. "If someone
breaks into my home, he's not walking out."
