This Just Sounds Weird
Check out this story in the Idaho Statesman; here's an excerpt:
A Boise man got a surprise early Monday morning when he went home and discovered a burglar inside his house who attacked him with a chair...This is just the first "breaking news" article about the story (and the link might be broken in the morning) but the whole story just doesn't make much sense to me. I mean, seriously, how many people have "kick their door in" as their first reaction when they find their front door is unexpectedly locked? Wouldn't most people maybe -- I don't know -- try a back door, or maybe a window first? And why would a burglar gang have one guy burgling while two others sit around and use drugs? As a cartoon character once said, "It does not make sense".
...The victim in the case told police he was returning to his home around 7:30 a.m. Monday and expected the front door to be open but got frustrated when he found it locked. The resident told police he kicked his door in and found a stranger inside attempting to steal his possessions. Two other strangers in the home, who were seen with drug paraphernalia, ran away, but the other intruder stayed inside.
The victim told police that man picked up a board and then a chair and attacked him, which started a fight between the two men...
...Police said they do not know why Pilcher chose that residence, and the victim told investigators he had never seen Pilcher or the other two people before.
