A friend of mine missed work one weekend, when he came back his duck dynasty beard was gone. I immediately assumed he had went to jail. When asked it turns out he was sent to the local mental hospital. Here's why...after waking up with his children early Friday morning he was attempting to make them breakfast. His home had been broken into several times so when he heard something go bump that wasn't supposed to go bump he immediately feared someone was in the house. Tur s out, he was right! One guy fled out the back door and he lost sight of him. He did see the other guy run into the building. He ran outside and heard one of the guys under his porch, he grabbed the only weapon he seen...a gallon of gas and poured it on the guy and told him if he moved he would burn him up. Needless to say he didn't move. Not a few moments later the police responded to his 911 call and immediately drew down on him with sidearms and placed him in handcuffs. The two methed out attempted robbers were released immediately, the one hosed off, and both given rides home (from the house they broke into) by police. My friend was put on a 72 hour psych hold and his children were removed from his home immediately. I told him he should have gotten a shotgun for home defense before those drug addicts broke in again.
