Good Guy with a Gun Captures Escaped Georgia Cop Murdering Convicts

FOX:

A Tennessee homeowner held two escaped inmates wanted in the killing of two prison guards at gunpoint Thursday until authorities arrived and made the arrests.

Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Bill Miller said late Thursday that the homeowner caught Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose trying to steal his vehicle.

Miller says the escaped Georgia inmates had crashed a car while being chased by law enforcement and fled on foot into woods along Interstate 24 near the rural community of Christiana.

Miller says something alerted the homeowner that people were outside his home and he saw the men trying to steal his vehicle. The trooper says the homeowner held the two at gunpoint with a neighbor he called until the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Department could get there to arrest them.

Rowe and Dubose are accused of killing two guards on a prison transfer bus early Tuesday. Authorities had offered a $130,000 reward for information leading to their arrests.

Authorities say Rowe and Dubose overpowered and killed Sgt. Christopher Monica and Sgt. Curtis Billue early Tuesday on a bus that should have been secured as it carried 33 inmates between prisons southeast of Atlanta.

Authorities had offered a $130,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the fugitives, whom Sills had called “dangerous beyond description.”

The search had involved law enforcement officers all over Georgia, as well as the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Gov. Nathan Deal released a statement, “Rest assured, justice will be served. My sincere thanks to our local, state and federal law enforcement officers who assisted in the manhunt. Because of their tireless efforts, the public is safe.”

Once again, a good guy with a gun stops crime and saves the nation of untold future horrors.

Kudos to the homeowner for snagging these vermin and good for him earning $130K.  It’s a darn shame two guards were killed.

Too bad ‘ol Sparky has been retired in Georgia.

    Too bad he wasn’t forced to shoot them.

      My thoughts too. I wonder if the bounty was for “dead or alive”. 🙂

        Best to march them inside and kill them there. That way you can claim they broke in. Smash a window too, for evidence. Make the glass fall inside. Put a few glass shards on their clothing. Case closed.
        Stupid crooks. Don’t they realize that putting tattoos on your face makes you easy to identify?

    I’m sure there are plenty of good electricians out there who can give ‘Ol Sparky’ the once over and get him back online. Lethal injection is so candyass. Let ’em ride the lightning!

    • Hardnox says:

      I agree. Lethal injection is candyass. A knife switch hooked to 13,200 volts will do the trick.

      SafeSpace lives in Georgia. I think he’d volunteer to fix Sparky.

    It’s a good thing he didn’t shoot them. It would have ruined some great artwork, which once they are put down, can be a wonderful display funded by the NEA.

    Here’s another good one. 1 unarmed man takes on 5 beaners with a shotgun…and WINS !
