Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson

A Florida sheriff is encouraging locals to shoot intruders to save taxpayers money. 

Following the arrested of a suspected interloper last week, Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson told reporters: 

If someone is breaking into your house you’re more than welcome to shoot at them in Santa Rosa County

We’d prefer that you do actually.

Santa Rosa police apprehended a 32-year-old suspect on Wednesday who they believe was breaking into homes near Pensacola, Florida.

He had reportedly been jumping over fences and running through yards when one area resident fired a shot at him, but he missed the target.

Sheriff Johnson suggested the resident take a gun safety course offered by the sheriff’s office every weekend. 

Johnson added: 

If you take that, you’ll shoot a lot better, and hopefully, you’ll save the taxpayers money.

Lord, please fix Florida and their Santa Rosa sheriff.
