We Have a Winner

Presenting, Paul Petersen, the most clueless police spokesman ever.

A Kent man who shot and killed a suspected intruder inside his home Saturday was armed with his own handgun when he walked in the door and found the stranger inside his home, police said.

A man and woman came home to their condo on Kent's East Hill at 6 p.m. Saturday to find another man inside. The 28-year-old homeowner used his own gun to shoot the suspected intruder, said Kent police spokesman Paul Petersen.

It's unknown why the homeowner had a handgun, Petersen said.

Translation: It's unknown why anyone wouldn't want to put their safety and well being in the hands of a criminal who has just forced his way into their home.

If brains were drill bits, this guy wouldn't be able to put a hole through a slice of American cheese.
