These Burglars Picked the Wrong Church to Rob Because the PASTOR WAS ARMED
When two copper thieves tried steal metal from the Greater Morning Star Baptist Church in New Orleans they got more than they bargained for as the pastor of the church was armed and in no mood to play games with thieves.
The pastor smashed one thief on the head and fired his weapon at the other. Naturally the police are now charging the pastor when all he was doing is rightfully defending his life and property.
A New Orleans pastor shot a burglar in the head Wednesday when two criminals reportedly tried to burglarize his church.
Pastor W.L.T. Littleton hit one suspect in the head and fired at another outside his Greater morning Star Baptist Church around 5 p.m., The Times-Picayune reports.
The investigation is ongoing, but according to church members, Littleton fired in self defense. Micquell Dillon, 25, said she heard eight gunshots, then saw Littleton in his Lincoln Navigator pursue two men in a pickup truck.
Police took possession of the bullet-riddled truck. It’s back window was shattered and there was a large dent in the truck bed, the Times reports. The wounded suspect, 50, was reported in stable condition at a nearby hospital. The other, 34, was arrested on charges of copper theft.
Pastor Littleton, 62, was charged with aggravated battery for shooting the suspected copper thief.
Let us hope that justice prevails and he is let off of these idiotic charges.
