Army Veteran Arrested For Protecting His Family
Debbie Lewis,

April 8, 2013 | Columbia, MO – Someone recently posted an older article by Fox News about a burglary and arrest.  One has to wonder how the article from March 2012 about the arrested homeowner would have been reported if our Constitutionally-protected Free Press was in place.  While Homer Wright was simply defending himself, his wife and his home against burglary, this Army Veteran was arrested.  Why?  Because Chicago doesn’t allow guns…So, what’s Mr. Wright supposed to do, let the burglar pilfer through his stuff while waiting for the cops?  And, before you read the article and tell me, “well, it says the burglar was only after alcohol,” does it really matter what he was after? 

Don’t we have a constitutional right to protect ourselves?  More law officers are telling us they may not be able to respond quickly because of budget cuts or other issues.  Does it really matter how quickly they respond?  Why can’t we take the responsibility for our own protection?  By the way, the burglar had been “arrested at least 13 times since 2009.”  Yet, whose photo accompanies the article and what was reported FIRST in this misguided article?  Mr. Wright’s and that he “was arrested because he had two previous weapons convictions…”  Mr. Wright was treated like a criminal, not only by the police, but by the mainstream press, as well.

“Our mainstream media has lost more credibility over the years, but many simply don’t know where to turn.  That’s why Peddling Influence is so important.  It explains the media agenda, why we don’t get the truth” says film maker William Lewis. 

IF the FREE PRESS handled this, the story and Mr. Wright’s response to REAL reporters might read something like this:

Burglar Down As 80 yr old Homeowner Defends Home

Homer Wright, an 80-year old Army veteran, successfully defended his home in the wee hours of the morning from a would-be burglar.  Anthony Robinson was shot once in the leg by Wright after Wright found him inside his home at 4 am, attempting to steal his belongings. 

According to Wright, “My wife woke me up after hearing something downstairs.  I caught the burglar in that act and defended my property.”

Mr. Wright’s neighbors call him a hero.

According to court records, Robinson had at least 13 previous arrests since 2009, alone.  Police arrested Wright, however, citing him with illegally defending his home and property.

“It’s just plain wrong that people cannot defend against law-breakers in this city.  Just wrong.  I have a right protect my family and home.  It’s right there in the Constitution,” said a defiant Wright.

To demand the immediate release of Wright and that all charges be dropped concerning this flagrant abuse of Mr. Wright’s liberties, please call 555-555-5555.

There is truly no sense in demonizing Mr. Wright.  Mr. Wright should have been hailed as a hero. This is just one of many examples abusive treatment of a victim by both the media and law enforcement.  We have to ask ourselves why?  Maybe the media doesn’t want to step on the toes of the local government in Chicago, but isn’t that really their job?  If something is wrong, it is wrong, yet more often than not, the media takes its cues from government.  Because of that, we don’t have a free press, we have another “branch” of government…a “state-run” media.

Until we have a truly free press, people like Mr. Wright will be treated with disrespect rather than as heroes, and criminals will continue to do what they do.  AND, if more burglars were shot in the leg for breaking and entering, maybe they would stop breaking the law.  After all, Mr. Wright didn’t take Robinson life, he just stopped Robinson from taking his stuff.  There are two things to be taken away from this Free Press “experiment.”  One, there should be NO hint of someone like Mr. Wright as a “bad guy” for exercising his right to defend himself and his property.  Two, if the mainstream press won’t do their job, maybe it’s time for us to take the job and run with it…
