In Santa Rosa County, Florida, a frequent customer of the sheriff’s department was involved in an almost shooting while breaking and entering a residence. It is not clear which resident shot at the career criminal, but the sheriff of that particular place has a message for the person with the gun.
“If someone breaks unto your house you are more than welcome to shoot them in Santa Rosa County,” Johnson deadpanned in front of reporters. “We prefer that you do, actually.”
He politely offered firearm lessons to the resident to improve their aim.
“You’re not in trouble,” he said. “Come see us. We have a gun safety class we put on every other Saturday. If you take that you’ll shoot a lot better and hopefully you’ll save taxpayers money.”
Sounds incredible? Well, it is not. It actually happened.
The “frequent flyer” as the sheriff calls him is off to jail again after the spree that resulted in police surrounding him before his capture. He was busy breaking into a number of houses in a neighborhood and one fed-up person took a shot.
