Long Island Man Arrested For Defending Home With AK-47 « CBS New York- News, Sports, Weather, Traffic and the Best of NY
The police told the CBS reporter that there are 1,200 MS-13 gang members in the county. The guy watched as a group of gang members he thought were members inserted themselves onto his driveway, then approaching the house.
George Grier ran for his AK-47, told his wife to call the police, and weapon in hand, politely asked them to please leave his property.
‘Can you please leave?’ Grier said.
Grier said the five men dared him to use the gun; and that their shouts brought another larger group of gang members in front of his house.
“He starts threatening my family, my life. ‘Oh you’re dead. I’m gonna kill your family and your babies. You’re dead.’ So when he says that, 20 others guys come rushing around the corner. And so I fired four warning shots into the grass,” Grier said.
Grier was later arrested. John Lewis is Grier’s attorney.
“What he’s initially charged with – A D felony reckless endangerment — requires a depraved indifference to human life, creating a risk that someone’s going to die. Shooting into a lawn doesn’t create a risk of anybody dying,” Lewis said.
Grier said he knew Nassau County Police employ the hi-tech “ShotSpotter” technology in his area and that the shooting would bring police in minutes. Cops told Guzman he was very cooperative.
Grier also said he was afraid the gang outside his house was the dreaded MS-13. And Nassau County Police Lt. Andrew Mulraine, head of the gang unit, said MS-13 has 2,000 members in the county.
“They’re probably the most organized. They almost have a military hierarchy within the gang, so they are the most organized gang we encounter on a daily basis,” Mulraine said.
My wife is from Honduras, and they know about this gang very well. They are ruthless, they have absolutely no morals, they are cruel, and if you know them, no matter if they show you weapons are not, they are armed and they are very, most extremely, dangerous. They make it a point.
For awhile in their home invasions in Honduras they would kill whole families and cut them into chunks and leave them there in plastic garbage bags.
And so of course the police arrested Mr. Grier!!???
