As the left cries to defund the police, crime is reaching historic highs – causing gun ownership to sky-rocket. Ike Umar of Houston, TX knows this as well as anybody. And when he was awoken at 3:00 AM to find a shirtless creep peering into his infant daughter’s bedroom, he didn’t wait on anybody else to protect his family.
The situation began when Umar’s wife awoke him after hearing the man prowling around their backyard.
Umar opened his curtains, only to find the shirtless, tattooed man trespassing on his property.
The armed Texan then confronted the man, asking: “Hey, who are you? What are you doing?”
And just after asking those questions, Umar loaded up his firearm, causing the man to throw his hands up in fear.
When the panicked intruder did respond, he didn’t put Umar at ease, as he claimed that he was on the run from six armed gang members.
So Umar naturally called the police, while continuing to hold the man at gunpoint.
And despite Houston increasing their police budget by $20 million last year, it ended up taking them forty-seven minutes to arrive on the scene.
Police were able to take the intruder into custody when they finally arrived.
“A Texas homeowner says he woke up in the middle of the night to find a stranger in his backyard, but believes police took way too long to get there.
Ike Umar, who lives in the Galleria area, said he called 911 for help several times, but he claims it took a while for officers to show up.
As he was waiting for help, Umar said he was terrified that something would happen to his wife or their 6-month-old daughter.
Now, he’s more upset with the Houston Police Department than the intruder.
“My wife woke me up, and she said, ‘Hey, I think somebody’s in the backyard.’ So, I moved the curtain, and I see a face of a guy who’s trying to look inside. My daughter’s bed is right there,” said Umar.
