I think this Southern Indiana burglar needs to find an honest job and settle his life down a little bit. The burglar faced a resident who uses an “assault rifle” as his home defense gun* (smart man is he)*, then, after being shot by the resident and backing out the door, his buddies ran him over with their get away car.
Honestly I thought this might belong in the “poetic justice” forum :rolleyes:, but we don’t have one of those here so I guess it fits best in the Secular News category.

A burglar who kicked in an apartment door this morning while brandishing a handgun was shot once by the resident and later run over outside, police said.
**Derek Clark, 26, was shot once in the leg and was backed over by accomplices as they fled the scene, **Evansville Police Department Sgt. Larry Nelson said. Clark is in intensive care at St. Mary’s Medical Center. Detectives have not yet been able to speak to Clark and are still looking for the accomplices. Nelson said there are multiple other people involved. . . .
Speaking this afternoon outside of his residence, Murray said he was thankful it happened when his four children were out of town.** As he went to retrieve his assault rifle** from his bedroom to defend himself, this morning Murray said he thought of the kids. “I just felt like 'I can’t die right now,” he said. "I got too many kids, I got too much to lose. I can’t die right now."
