84-year-old veteran fends off robber, says “anybody that doesn't arm themselves is asking for trouble”

Rebel Staff

An Oklahoma thief had the tables turned on him while attempting to rob an 84-year-old.

Doug Jandebeur, a veteran, was getting out of his truck outside his business when suddenly he was assaulted from behind.

Security footage of the incident shows the thief punch Jandebeur in the face and take his wallet. That's when Jandebeur took out his handgun and sent the thief running.

“I pulled out my automatic and was getting ready to ventilate him. Once he saw my gun, he decided it was time to leave,” Jandebeur told Fox.

“Anybody that doesn't arm themselves is asking for trouble.”

Jandebeur didn't suffer any serious injuries and authorities are looking for the suspect.

Good on the old gent, crime would drop off quickly if thugs thought most people carried a gun instead of being sitting ducks.

Have to agree with many of the commenters on this one. The 84 year old WHITE veteran was lucky that there was video footage to support him. I can see the headlines now across America: “White man fatally shoots an unarmed black teenager!”

Sharpton, Farrakhan, Holder and Obama are enabling this type of “excusable” crime spree in black youth as a sort of free pass for some alleged ancient wrongs. I believe they are actively attempting to construct 2 tiered race based law where young black males are not prosecuted for a litany of crimes in which they are now the leading demographic. This senior citizen senses this at some level. He knows violent crime against seniors is getting worse and that his chances of being victimized in the current criminal-friendly political climate is pretty good. Thank God the 2nd amendment protects him even if his government does not.

Once again whitey abusing a black man…something has to be done about whitey

If this perceived racism didn’t exist to rally the blacks and liberals, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be out of work. They need to feed their families, too! (Blame Whity so you can abdicate responsibility)

I love the 12 year old in Oklahoma that shot an intruder. Her mom had just taught her how to use the family gun . Shot the intruder through the bedroom closet door. He collapsed on the front lawn.

Bet the little thug has dirty pants and will think twice the next time.

Over 6000 black Americans are killed ANNUALLY, with 93% killed by other blacks. (Of the remainder, some are killed by hispanics with whites accounting for a smaller number). For anyone actually concerned about the astonishingly high murder rate of blacks, there should be marches about the 6000+ and introspection within the black community as to why their youth are killing each other. Instead, national protests are organized about the handful of black shootings by whites, most during the commission of a crime and/or in self defense. It’s as though blacks and their liberal enablers care only about black deaths that can be politicized and racialized.

It’s reverse racism, Anonymous, and I’m so done with it.

unfortunately, Valerie you are correct…to boot he would of most likely been charged with assault…

And if the “suspect” had been shot and died, blacks in America would be rioting in the streets because it’s okay for a young black thug to attack an 84 year-old white guy, but it’s not okay for the white guy to fight back.
