Video: California Man Brags About Shooting Pregnant Intruder in the Back

50
  

Tom Greer, an 80-year-old home and gun owner, shot and killed a pregnant intruder fleeing his home after a bungled burglary attempt. The intruders were in the process of ransacking his home, and they threw Greer to the ground when he approached them. They were not aware that when he approached them, he was also armed with his .22-caliber Smith and Wesson revolver.

Greer explained his decision to shoot the pregnant intruder to NBC Los Angeles.

The woman who was shot and killed was in the process of fleeing.

“I come back and they see me with a gun, and they run,” he said. “The lady, she didn’t run as fast as the man, so I shot her in the back, twice.”

The man escaped, but the woman fell when shot by Greer’s gunfire in an alley behind the house.

“She says, ‘Don’t shoot me, I’m pregnant! I’m going to have a baby!’ And I shot her anyway,” Greer said.

When asked what he saw happen to the woman after he fired shots, Greer responded: “She was dead. I shot her twice, she best be dead … (The man) had run off and left her.”

Greer said he hoped that the man who was with the intruder had learned a lesson. “I shot her so that’s going to leave a message on his mind for the rest of his life,” Greer said.

Long Beach police said they were investigating the incident. It is possible that charges will be filed because Mr. Greer wasn’t in any imminent danger from the suspect, as she was fleeing the scene when she was shot twice. Both intruders were unarmed and fleeing the scene when Greer decided to shoot at them.

  • The Murderer Greer

    Back shooters are always the lowest form of scum in life. I hope they arrest Greer and he gets his due in prison where he belongs. If this story gets traction out there he may become the new right wing hero like Zimmerman. However it is hard to make him into that type of figure since he shot a woman in the back, and also that she was pregnant as well. The guy with her should have stayed, so I am sure he feels pretty bad about it too. But again you have two people in the wrong place at the wrong time doing things they shouldn’t have been doing.

    Someone once said to me that when you say wrong place at the wrong time, its actually being in the right place at the right time. For these people who were robbing this house, they were in the exact right place at the right time for whatever was supposed to happen to them. The unborn child of course never had a say in the outcome or a chance to be anything in this life. That alone should be a charge of murder for Greer..

    Great story Hypatia, thank you for writing this and shining a light on this waste of human garbage named Greer.

    • KNERDY

      Typical of you sick fux Libtudiban, blame the victim instead of the perpetrator.

      • James

        But what about the BABY??? Oh wait, not a baby, just a fetus. Carry on with applauding this woman’s death

        • KNERDY

          Oh, but if the woman murdered the baby via “abortion” you Libturdiban would be applauding her.
          You Libturdiban are some seriously sick twisted freaks.

          • James

            LOL libtudiban? Get out much? I’m thinking you prolly don’t have many friends IRL

          • Knerdy Turdy

            Yeah, my question also. Do you actually have a vocabulary, or are these the only words you have been taught in life so far? I understand that home schooling is not the best these days, but if you would like, I can recommend some phonetic books and maybe offer some help in word formation if you so desire. Just let me know.

          • KNERDY

            Don’t you Libturdiban understand the concept of responsibility for your own actions? To not steal, stop living off of others, stop depending on the government to wipe your rear-ends, and make decisions for you?

          • James

            Except I’m not even a real liberal, I’m a moderate/independent and haven’t once vote straight Democrat. But you’ll never see me vote for the Tea Taliban, who favors shooting women and their unborn babies to death on the spot.

          • KNERDY

            So , but you will vote for those who support ripping a baby apart out from the mother’s womb..
            yes you are one sick fux Libturder.

          • James

            I feel like I could actually do this all day, if I didn’t have a job and family to tend to. Unfortunately, not everyone can sit around making up their own words, laws and intepretation of the Constitution and the Bible all day every day. Maybe if I got SSDI like a lot of you Tea Talibans. But I gots bills to pay and a wife to lay!! LOL take care nerdy.

          • James

            libturdiban is not a real world dude

          • KNERDY

            But they are real sick fuxs people ….YOU

          • James

            do you speak with real people in real life using these made up words that you can’t even try to spell? LOL

        • KNERDY

          Turns out she was not even pregnant! HA HA You sick fuxz libturds!

      • ORAXX

        Shooting a pregnant woman is the back qualifies this man as a victim? Unbelievable.

        • KNERDY

          Well, after breaking into his home and attacking him, yes you Libturdiban sick fux.

        • kellyandtheboys

          No, the “pregnant” woman was burglarizing his home, was part of an assault team that knocked him down and broke his collar bone along with damaging his shoulder….. THAT made him the victim. Now, be at least a little honest here………….. would they have stopped had he not pulled out a gun and started shooting at them? I am by NO MEANS a tea party gun nut. However, I do see that, in this case, the gun did save him. And, I can easily see where he was, at least at one point in fear for his life.
          The second shot, however, and his big mouth are what will nail him.

        • kellyandtheboys

          What gives a “pregnant” woman in her 20’s the right to assault an elderly man in HIS home?

    • Les Blenkhorn

      Guess what loser, they would have killed him if he hadn’t had the gun. If you want to avoid the same fate stay out of people’s houses, even liberal California has the castle doctrine, and I don’t care if she was running away they won’t convict this guy of anything.

      • The Murderer Greer

        Less, I do understand the frustration you are speaking of. Its a very hard thing to debate. But I think in the good ole USA, shooting someone, especially a woman in the back while they are fleeing is, well, not a good thing. I also understand that they should not have been in the home robbing it either. It is a hard choice no matter what.

        • KNERDY

          So then aborting (murder) a baby is not a good thing

          • James

            Sure, she should have aborted the baby BEFORE she decided to burglarize that home.

            Mean lady FORCED that old man to follow her down the alley and shoot her in the back as she ran away

            What a c*nt

          • kellyandtheboys

            What does this have to do with abortion? Heck, we don’t even know she was pregnant. She started sprouting that out when he came after her the second time.

          • KNERDY

            Everything. The fact liberal’s head are exploding because the guy shot a “pregnant” woman all the while praising women who do abortions.
            That is a serious mental disorder.

        • Les Blenkhorn

          Even the good old USA is changing before our very eyes, have you noticed we are importing gang bangers from Central America as though we don’t have enough of our own.

        • kellyandtheboys

          The guy should, perhaps, keep his mouth shut. It does make me throw up a little to hear him… and read what he says. I tend to be quite liberal politically. However, I have VERY LITTLE empathy for a woman who chose to burglarize, rob and attack an elderly person. I have even less for the coward who robbed this guy, was part of the assault team and ran away leaving this woman to be shot and killed.

    • kellyandtheboys

      Really? This man is NOTHING like Zimmerman. The woman (note, not really a victim) in this case was actually burglarizing this man. She attacked him and did cause bodily injury (as noted in hospital reports as well as police reports). This man was retired and the stole his money (not the first time as noted in the REAL NEWS stories). These people were suspected of burglarizing several others as well.
      The “unborn baby” may or may not be real. If there was, indeed, an unborn baby the mother should have done a much better job protecting it. The real murderer here? The filthy POS who ran and let his “baby mama” behind to die. He, not Greer should be charged with 2 counts (if indeed there was a pregnancy) of murder.

  • Les Blenkhorn

    Notice they jumped him and beat him up, who cares if she was running away and he shot her in the back, the only reason she was running is that he had a gun, otherwise they would have finished him off because he could have identified him.

    • James

      If we were in Afghanistan, those monster Talibans would have cut off the pregnant woman’s hand or lashed her until she lost her baby. Good thing that we had an old white guy to shoot her and her baby dead on the spot instead. The future of the Tea Taliban’s role in the justice system. Shoot once if she’s just one person! Shoot twice if she says she’s with child!

      • I’m Sold

        Spot on comment James. Spot on. I get your point too.

        • Les Blenkhorn

          Just let the intruders kill you sounds like a good plan.

          • jen

            Except I just watched the video, and the woman was in the alley, not even in his backyard. He PURSUED her. So how was an unarmed, pregnant woman whose dumbass bf abandoned her going to kill the man with a gun again? Why did he feel he needed to follow her into the alley?

            Was she wearing a hoodie or something? LOL

          • Les Blenkhorn

            I fully get your point Jen, but he’s 80 years old we can’t account for what kind of trauma this was for this man, he’s not a trained police officer. And by the way do you remember the trained police officers who shot up the two pickups during the Christopher Dorner incident. They were trained police officers. This guy needs to be given at least as much slack as they were given.

          • jen

            omg that would be the day, when the corrupt cops are held responsible for ANY act of violence they commit

            I have a feeling this man won’t see jail, maybe not more than a quick court hearing and dismissed.

            If he were in my family I’d take him in for a psych exam just in case. His cheerful demeanor tells me he doesn’t quite grasp what has happened (even George Zimmerman expresses regret over what he did, even while saying he thinks he did the right thing!)

            but omg on the topic of police brutality — there’s one place ALL the citizens should unite against. What they did during the Dorner incidence was reckless and nobody ever held them accountable. (And I hate to say it but I actually think they droned the guy)

      • KNERDY

        Notice you Libturdiban are some serious sick fuxs?

      • Les Blenkhorn

        Wow James where did the racism come in? I don’t know that both of the intruders weren’t white, they didn’t say. I thought you liberal fools weren’t supposed to be racist, but actually you are the most racist because to you everything must be motivated by race. They broke into his house James. Hello earth to James.

  • Mark

    The only blessing here is that this killer will die soon himself. He is disgusting.

    • KNERDY

      You libturdiban are disgusting

      • James

        Says the man who made up his own word as an insult — probably because he can’t spell any of the true words that insult people

        Here’s a few to try, tho, taken straight from the Tea Taliban Thesaurus:

        1. moran
        2. idjiot
        3. looser

    • Lightmann

      He should have ran after the other person and KILLED him/her too….

  • Lightmann

    If those burglars came into my house, I’d take both down and reload twice to make sure. Once I’ve CONFIRMED they are dead, I’ll call the cops…

    • James

      I encourage you to get your murders over quickly. Maybe leave the door unlocked or all the curtains drawn so those burglars can go ahead and meet their reckonbing soon

      Ask your mom if it’s okay to get some sunlight

  • Lightmann

    I love when justice is served…..

    • James

      But justice isn’t over here, sir. I just read an update that this 80 year old man has to get a lawyer and face a charge.

      So, that’s what we in America call justice. A court of law that proves guilt beyong a reasonable doubt.

      And when you, too, shoot to kill somebody, I’m guessing we’ll be reading about how your mom or sister had to sign the house as bail or bond. And you’ll just be happy you got to kill before your sentencing day lol.

      Hope you choose to shoot to kill when you’re 80. Otherwise you’ll probably spend most of your life in prison making jeans for 30 cents an hour. JUSTICE YAY

      • jen

        with any luck he’ll go bankrupt from the court costs and be forced to move from that house he was protecting

  • Lightmann

    I would have shot both of them and then reloaded the gun twice to make sure….

      So much for “turning the other cheek,” huh?

      • Carlalalala

        This was the second time these two had broken into his home. How any times to you let someone invade your home before taking some action?

        • http://www.osborneink.com/ OsborneInk

          Remember that guy who built a shotgun booby-trap because some kid had broken into his basement fifty times? That guy went to prison. So should this guy. He wasn’t standing his ground or defending anything, he was shooting a visibly-pregnant woman in the back. Not exactly hero stuff, y’know?

          • KNERDY

            “visibly pregnant”??? LOL!!!
            She was not pregnant!
            You Libtards love to make up “facts”
