    Police: Clearwater Homeowner Shoots Man In Garage
    A man who says his routine is to sit in his garage in the early morning and read the newspaper got into a confrontation with a stranger at 4:45 a.m. today that ended with the stranger going to the hospital with a gunshot wound, Clearwater police say.

    Lester Rollins Sr., 58, was in his garage at 902 Pennsylvania Ave. when a man walked up to him, said Elizabeth Daly-Watts, a spokeswoman for Clearwater's public safety departments.

    Alexander Stephen, 21, of Clearwater, first just asked for a light for his cigar, Daly-Watts said. According to Rollins, Stephen then poked him in the chest and made threats, Daly-Watts said. Fearing for his safety, Rollins shot Stephen and called 911, she said.

    Stephen was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg, where he underwent emergency surgery and is in guarded condition, Daly-Watts said.

    No charges have been filed.

    If you are going to be sitting in a garage that time of the morning and it was open, as I suppose his was, then you better have a gun.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant'
    is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist '.
