Subject: He could have used a warning?

Deyfon done got a warning, unfortunately for him, the bullet traveled faster than the sound of the homeowners warning "Hey, you better not come any farther"

Burglar's relative says: "He could have used a warning first..."
From WTTC News in Dallas, we get this heartwarming tale of a long-time criminal, 33year old Deyfon, who tried to climb in a window of a Texas home.

Dead burglar
The elderly owner occupant saw him and fired one shot, ending Deyfon’s criminal career.

As the police do, they came by to investigate, gathered the corpse, then went to notify Deyfon's family of his unfortunate demise. It seems that the family was very upset, because they showed up at the scene.

"He could have used a warning," Lakesha Thompson, Pipkins' sister-in-law, complained. "He could have let him know that he did have a gun on his property and he would use it in self-defense."

COMMENT FROM THE SIDELINE:
"That's certainly true, Lakesha. He could also have invited him in and given him a beer, then helped him cart the TV out to the curb.

"Unfortunately for Deyfon, Texas is a Castle Doctrine state, and the homeowner chose to shoot Deyfon, as is right and proper to do in Texas.
"For that matter, Lakesha, you could have warned Deyfon. Why didn't YOU tell him: 'Deyfon, yo' needs to quit breakin' into those peoples' houses and stealin' they shit. Someone is goins to pop a cap in yo' ass.'"

God must love stupid people; He made so many.
