And we were right. Apparently duct tape works very well at securing an intruder, but we think maybe the fact that the homeowner and and his neighbors who duct taped the intruder were armed when it happened might be a little more important than the duct tape;
Shandra Vestal lives across the street from that homeowner and didn’t hesitate to help.
“I went to my garage, my husband and I. We got two pistols. We met him at the cul-de-sac. He blocked off the entry of the cul-de-sac to make sure if he did have a vehicle, the man entering the home wouldn’t be able to escape,” she said. “As he pulled in, I passed him this 45 and then I got the other Ruger.”
But, sure … go with “duct tape” in the headline. That’s the PC version that won’t offend liberals but that omits the reality of what really went down.
