man gets shot in foot fending off thief

An Indiana man has been filmed pointing down the barrel of a handgun in a daring confrontation with an armed stranger who tried to steal his friend’s moped.


Timothy Gramza, 56, who had his own gun in a back pocket but did not
draw the weapon, spent several minutes arguing with the hooded teenager.


South Bend detective Sergeant Eugene Eyster, who is investigating the
April 1 incident, said he was amazed at Mr Gramza's bravery.

"It's one of those when you're telling yourself, either this man has a
lot of guts or he's about to lose all that he has," Sgt Eyster said.

"You see him reach several times to his back pocket, but he just couldn't do it. He couldn't make himself shoot a teenager."

  • I'm sure that innocent 11 yr old kid just wanted to borrow the moped to get some skittles and tea.

  • Wow how much more brazen can you be, just walk right up to someone's property while they're there and try and steal their stuff?? WTF? >_>

    Black people just have no shame. Anyone who defends these fucking animals needs to live in a black neighborhood and see for themselves how peaceful and loving blacks are first hand. Seriously for every possible wrongful killing like Trayvon, there's probably a dozen justified killings of blacks like you see here.

    They're not going to give a shit if th More..

  • The colored man should be given a fair trial, after which he should be killed.

  • THat shit should have had a bullet up his arse, I guess the other guy was afraid to shoot him in case he's taken for a Zimmerman.

    Its not as bad hear (yet), you don't get blokes just jumping on your gear and pulling a gun but I guess our scum will copy the American scum sooner rather than later.

  • The old man didn't do anybody and favors by not killing this lump of human waste. He should have busted the two-by-four across his lips and then made mush out of his head with it.

  • Should have shot and killed the shooter. I carry even when in my yard. Fuck anyone who wants to walk up and do something like that shit. I have too many Trevons through the woods...though they have been okay thus far.

  • Not giving the africun the scooter, his wallet, a home and a ruck of food stamps and a life-time supply of skittles breached his human rights.

    Also he (africun) should sue if flash-backs to the incident cause post traumatic stress disorder.

    Or perhaps the white guy should have pulled out his own gun at the 29 second mark and shot the worthless piece of shit in the spine?
