Looks like white folks are feeling backed into a corner. So they’re coming out fighting.

In a dramatic twist, dad turns to TV to defend family from armed burglar in Kansas City home

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—A burglar walked right into a Kansas City home and pointed a gun at the people who live there, demanding money. When the father turned to defend his family, he channeled something you have in your home right now.
“I hopped up and grabbed it and just threw it like that at him and chased him out,” said John Sullivan, as he re-enacted what happened when he hurled his 30-pound, 50-inch flat screen TV across his living room.
“I didn`t even feel the weight,” he said. “It was like a piece of paper. It just flew across the room at the guy.”
That “guy” was a burglar who walked right through Sullivan’s unlocked front door and pointed a gun at him.
“I just jumped up,” Sullivan said. “I wasn`t thinking, just threw the TV at him, and charged right at him, screaming as loud as I can. So it was all instinct.”
It was the instinct to protect his family – as his wife sat just feet away from him in the living room, and his four little boys, ages 3 to 10, were tucked into their beds upstairs.
“They mean the world to me,” he said, “and all I could think about was protecting them the whole time and to just get that guy out of the house.”
Thankfully, Sullivan’s defense tactics worked. He scared off the burglar and his lookout, who both ran down the driveway and hopped into a getaway car.
“Just the invasion of property, you know?” Sullivan said of the most upsetting part. “They walked up, and threatened my family with a gun in my own living room. It`s troubling.”
It was a scary scenario Sullivan knows could've ended badly, but actions he wouldn't change – saying he would've taken a bullet if it meant keeping safe what means the most.
“Everything was on the line,” Sullivan said. “My whole family. So I had to do what I had to do to protect them.”
Sullivan said those same burglars targeted another house in his neighborhood and possibly a house in Raytown, Mo., that same night. But police have yet to make an arrest.
Sullivan said the burglars were black men in their 20s. The one toting the gun was heavier-set, wearing a navy blue jacket, and a red and black Chiefs hat.
He said the lookout was a taller man, wearing a navy shirt and blue jeans. While the getaway car was a black older model 4-door Sedan.
If you know anything, call Crime Stoppers at (816) 474-TIPS.
Lesson Learned: It’s a good idea to keep your front door locked at all times. Even in "safe” neighborhoods. A common M.O. of Dindu residential burglars is to go house to house looking for a front door that has been left unlocked. Sometimes the Dindus are just looking to steal what they can and get out without being detected and sometimes they will come in specifically to take the occupants captive and have their way with them. In either case you can often thwart the intruders merely by keeping your doors locked. Then they’ll usually just move on to the next house, or the next one after that and so on, until they find an unlocked door. Taking the simple precaution of securing your entrances could save you from having to sacrifice your big screen TV after all.
P.S. I trust you had a good flight and that you’re enjoying your trip thus far, James.

Thanks, Jeremy and I thank you so much for taking up the Harm City beat while I write landscape studies that no one will read.
