BEING BURGLARIZED FOUR times was too much for 69-year-old Air Force
veteran John Lewis. He decided he'd had enough. "I mean I'm not
going to sit here and let somebody rob me over and over again:' he
said. So when he heard an unexplainable sound one evening, Lewis
quickly retrieved his .357-caliber pistol. "[The alleged burglar]
made more noise than anybody I've ever dreamed of trying to break
into a house;' he remembers. When Lewis approached the door, he
found a man holding a flashlight and a pickax. "What's there to
think about?" he asks rhetorically "I mean, he was going to hurt me
or I was going to hurt him" Lewis chose the latter, shooting his
assailant. According to police, the suspect, who has a lengthy
criminal record, limped away and was arrested nearby.
