Knife & Hammer Wielding Robbers Held at Gunpoint For Police


If you listened to liberals, you’d think guns were only used in school shootings and suicides when they aren’t causing innocent people to commit crimes for no reason. But of course, stories like this one show you that liberalism and reality often part company.

Robber with knife

It appears two Midlands men may have picked the wrong garage to burglarize Monday evening near Leesville.

Christopher Alan Morgan, 18, of Gilbert, and James William Whitten, II, 26, of Leesville, are in jail after two men held them at gunpoint following the burglary of a workshop outside a home on Sandpit Road.

Arrest warrants allege that between 9 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., Morgan and Whitten, who was armed with a knife and hammer, broke a glass panel on a door and unlawfully entered the building with the intent to steal an air compressor and drill bits, Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said.

Whitten is also accused of breaking a window in a rear door in an attempt to break into the home that is adjacent to the garage.

Arrest warrants further allege that a 69-year-old man who owns the home and another man found Morgan and Whitten near the property following the break-in, Metts said. The homeowner, who was home at the time of the incident, and the other man detained Morgan and Whitten at gunpoint until deputies arrived and later arrested Morgan and Whitten.

If liberals had their way, this story would read, “Two innocent men hammered and stabbed to death by burglars. Should hammers and knives be banned?” Happily, liberals aren’t getting their way on guns and thank God for that.
