How criminals use the masks

C. Douglas Gordon reports in Western Journalism,
Aaron LaTowsky had five perfect words for his thoughts on killing a naked home intruder: “God bless … the Second Amendment.”

According to KSAZ-TV, LaTowsky was confronted with the unclothed, combative man in his daughter’s room Wednesday night in Scottsdale, Arizona.

LaTowsky is your average American — a man with a wife, three kids and a dog named Sadie.

He also owns a shotgun. He never even had to use it against an intruder until this week.

The unnamed naked man who apparently entered LaTowsky’s house, estimated to be between 18 and 19 years old by police, had first been reported allegedly trying to break into a different home in the area.

There, the homeowner scared him off and he was gone by the time police arrived.

At LaTowsky’s home, meanwhile, Aaron was outside at the time. The rest of his family was sleeping — except for his dog, Sadie, who alerted him that something was up.

“So I came inside, and I saw one of our side doors was open and she was barking down the hall towards my kids’ bedrooms,” LaTowsky told KSAZ.

LaTowsky said he grabbed his shotgun and went down the hall.

As he went into his daughter’s room, LaTowsky said the suspect emerged wielding a piece of wood, his face masked and his body naked.

“He basically was lunging at me, so it was very quick,” LaTowsky said.

“He had his hands in the air. I could see something dark or black coming at me, and again it was very, very close, so I fired almost immediately.”

LaTowsky expressed gratitude for his constitutional rights.
