Adding Insult to Injury

Just killing the goblin wasn’t enough for the Florida Beauty Pageant Queen, no she had to make the humiliation complete and use a pink gun.  I think I’m in love. (H/T LC Sir Christopher for the linkie love.)

When a burly ex-convict forced his way into a posh Florida home last week, he had no idea what awaited him — a 25-year-old beauty queen with a pink .38-caliber handgun.

Yep, definitely falling hard here.
Meghan Brown, a former Florida pageant queen, shot and killed 42-year-old Albert Franklin Hill during a home invasion March 12 at the 2,732-square-foot house she shares with her fiance in Tierra Verde, Fla.
Well, the fiancee may be a problem. So would Bangie Thing now that I think about it.

Hill barged into the home at around 3 a.m. after Brown responded to a knock at the front door, according to a police report. He allegedly grabbed the 110-pound Brown around her nose and mouth and dragged her to an upstairs bedroom.

The woman’s fiance, Robert Planthaber, said in an interview that he was quickly awakened by the altercation and ran to Brown’s side.

“I attacked him and took a severe beating to the head,” Planthaber told FoxNews.com. “But I got him off of her long enough for her to scramble to the room where she keeps her pink .38 special.”

Save by your girlfriend and her pink .38 Special. Turn in your man card dude. The fact that you’re banging a beauty queen was just voided by the fact that she had to save you from a beating with her pink gun. Sorry man, I don’t make the rules.
Brown, who reigned as the 2009 Miss Tierra Verde, snatched her gun from a nearby bedroom and shot the suspect several times – hitting him in the chest, groin, thigh and back, her fiance said. Hill was pronounced dead at the scene.
And the gene pools PH balance was improved immensely.
Hill had a criminal record stretching back nearly three decades — including arrests for burglary, battery, drug possession and grand theft. He reportedly served a 13-year prison term in 1987 and was released in September after serving a fourth term behind bars.
Once again an armed citizen does the job the criminal justice system won’t. I don’t think Hill will be a recidivist again anytime in the near future.

Panthaber, meanwhile, said he and his fiancee are lucky to be alive. He said he purchased the pink handgun for Brown last Christmas and that the two had gone to target practice together.

“She was not a good shot at the range,” he quipped.

That’s alright champ, she was a good shot when it counted. And that’s all that matters.
