When Eric MacFarlane saw three teenagers kick in his neighbor's
door, he got his pistol and told a neighbor to call police. Fearing
his neighbor's small children were endangered, he ran to the scene.
Police say two of the teens immediately fled, but MacFarlane found
one in the doorway. "I told him to step back and lay down if he
wanted to live," MacFarlane recalls. "Then I talked to him about
what direction his life was going in." The teen said he broke in for
money. MacFarlane told him he's lucky the decision didn't get him
shot. "I just hope this young man has learned a lesson," MacFarlane
explained, adding that he doesn't believe in violence. "[MacFarlane]
did a really great job," said Midwest City, Okla., police Capt. Sid
Porter. "We're probably going to issue him a commendation."
