Florida women frighten off intruder by chanting ‘Jesus’

By Eric Pfeiffer, Yahoo! News|The SideshowMon, Jan 28, 2013

http://news.yahoo.co...-014559212.html

If you ask the 15 women inside Jacquie Hagler’s house what happened, they’ll tell you it’s simple:Jesus scared a would-be thief out of the Florida woman’s home.

At first, those gathered at Hagler’s house for a jewelry party thought the intruder was part of an elaborate gag, using a “water gun” to tease the Florida women.

"It's only a water gun," one attendee reportedly said, while brushing away the firearm allegedly brandished by Derick Lee, who allegedly entered the home wearing a ski cap and bandana across his face.

Witnesses say Lee then held the gun to the woman’s head and announced, "I'm not joking, I'm going to shoot someone, give me your money." He even showed the women some of the bullets loaded into his gun before they could be convinced the robbery attempt was real.

What Lee didn’t know was that, spiritually speaking, he was outgunned by the jewelry party attendees.

"When I realized what was going on, I stood up and said, 'In the name of Jesus, get out of my house now,'” Hagler told WJXT-TV. "And he said, 'I'm going to shoot someone.' And I said it again, real boldly," Hagler continued. "Everybody started chanting, 'Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,' and he did a quick scan of the room and ran out the door as fast as he could go."

The suspect, Lee, 24, was arrested on Friday night at his home and identified by several of the jewelry party attendees during a police photo lineup. He’s currently being held on a $200,000 bond.

"I believe he saw angels,” Hagler said in an interview with the Christian Post. “He saw who was on our side, and he just turned around. The look on his face was just, like, astonishment. He was totally captivated by whatever he saw. He just turned around and ran out the door.”

Saw angels? I doubt it.

Likely he never intended on actually killing anyway, and when he saw the women were ignoring him and just chanting, he thought it pointless and left.

Next time roll out the heavy artillery and chant the St. Michael's Prayer:


Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Divine Power of God,
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

~ Pope Leo XIII in 1884

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

He obviously had not watched many movies/TV shows... the proper technique is to squeeze off a shot so everyone knows the gun is loaded. A flesh wound makes an exclamation point to the demonstration.

One forum where I post has this as a rule to prevent this sort of spamming.

We prefer you post a synopsis in your own words and the link to the article. It's permissible to quote up to 20 lines of text and you must provide commentary. DO NOT POST ENTIRE ARTICLES.

Sounds like a pretty inept robber, fleeing empty-handed from a jewelry party.

And do those women actually believe they made an angel appear? Only in 'Murica.

If the article is of substance (and especially hidden behind paywalls), I see the value in posting the entire article. Right now, this posting and leaving crap is simply flooding OT with nonsensical topics that will die out within 12 hours, pushing conversations to page 2 (where it is then virtually ignored).

Let's review the last time this same OP posted a thread with religious connotations. The mods locked it because they claimed it led to a heated religious debate...which is ABSOLUTELY what it was. It stands to reason since that thread was closed down because of a heated religious debate, this one...which is almost certainly going to lead down the same road...and with even MORE religious connotation...is going to be deja vu. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that this OP is looking for a reaction of some kind, or he wouldn't post controversial topic threads like this one or the one about 18% and 10% for God or whatever that silly nonsense was. Anyone ever seen him add any of his own opinions to his posts in these threads? That's because he hasn't.

On an even more related note, debating and criticizing religion and the validity of it and speaking out against it would be another facet of the First Amendment...namely that of freedom of speech.
