BREAKING NEWS – Milton, Florida – A Florida sheriff responded to the criticism and praise he has received for his viral comments about encouraging citizens to use the kill shot against home invaders.

During a press conference in April 2022, Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson said, “If someone is breaking into your house, you’re more than welcome to shoot. We prefer you to do that, actually. If you shoot accurately, and you kill the guy, you save taxpayers money. And I also said that if somebody gets killed during a home invasion, the odds of them re-offending are zero. And we like those odds, which we do,” he told Fox News Digital.

“Sheriff Johnson should be fired immediately!” stated Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “What he is doing, is declaring open season on burglars, instead of telling the homeowners to try to determine if the unexpected guest planned on stealing something that was really valuable, or something a family member planned on eventually giving away.”
