Military Vet Arrested; Guns Confiscated: His Crime – Defending his home from Burglar

Top Tier Gear USA


A Military veteran living in Oregon, 36-year-old Corey Thompson, has been arrested and has had his firearms confiscated after defending his home from an intruder.

Medford, Oregon Police arrested Thompson, after he attempted to stop a wanted felon from breaking into his home by firing a warning shot into the ground. The felon, 40-year-old Jonathon Kinsella, had outstanding warrants that included burglary and assault charges.

The wanted felon was trying to break into Thompson’s home through a back door. Trying to defend his property, Thompson grabbed his AR-15 rifle and warned the criminal that he was armed. He then yelled to him that he was giving him his one and only warning shot; he then fired one warning shot. The bullet did not strike the suspect or anyone else.

“This is the end result. You break into someone’s house, there’s consequences,” Thompson told KDRV-TV. “When I’m dealt with a stressful situation, being a veteran from Iraq and the Afghanistan war, it’s natural. I just jump into combat mode. I told him, ‘I’m going to give you a warning shot’.”

Despite the fact that Thompson was clearly defending his home from a wanted felon, Medford, Oregon Police arrested the military vet and charged him with Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Menacing and Reckless Endangering. Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau told KDRV-TV, “There was nothing that the suspect was doing that was aggressive enough to justify the shooting.”

The Suspect wasn’t doing anything to Justify the Shooting?

I’m sorry, but if someone is breaking into your home, how the hell is that not justification to shoot? Are we now just supposed to sit there and wait, hoping that the criminal isn’t going to hurt us in the process of burglarizing our homes? What kind of crazy crap is that?

Thompson had his AR-15 seized, leaving him defenseless against anyone who now wants to come and get revenge. Is this what we pay our police to do, leave innocent Americans defenseless in their own homes?

    1. “Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau told KDRV-TV, “There was nothing that the suspect was doing that was aggressive enough to justify the shooting.” ”

    Unfortunately legally true.
    Would’ve been better to shoot the criminal and dump the body. THAT is the lesson to learn here.

    2. “Thompson had his AR-15 seized, leaving him defenseless against anyone who now wants to come and get revenge. Is this what we pay our police to do, leave innocent Americans defenseless in their own homes?”

    YES!!!!!! THAT IS THE INTENT!!!! Makes the cops more important, and thus MORE POWERFUL.

    So take-away #2 is, start killing cops, because they’ve declared war on us. We just didn’t know it.

    There’s NO WAY the police can actually handle Americans if Americans decide to stand up, expecially en masse. And Boston and Dorner have shown that the cops will got absolutely insane and violate all concepts of Constitutional law to try and shut down anything other than outright servility – and fail marvelously, too.

    Shoot and kill the intruder, bury them at least 6 feet deep, and never ever tell a soul.

  • SKIP

    The duty of police is only to fill out paperwork related to the killing of you during the rape/burglary/robbery etc.

  • RickE.

    I would bet that if ANY person tried to break into a cops house in Oregon, that cop would have shot the perp 2 dozen times!
    No warning shot would have been fired.
    Cops are trained to shoot to kill, and kill they do!
    I would NOT give some slime bag the opportunity to hurt me or mine!

    The cops are worse than the so-called criminals. One has a much better chance to die by cop than by criminal!!

    • Jean

      While a person breaking into a cop’s home might be shot AT 24 times or so, odds are they’d be hit once or twice.
      Police Marksmanship is almost as much an oxymoron as Military Intlligence.

      • RickE.

        LOL, Jean, you’re absolutely right!

    • ENFP

      Right, how many times did they shoot the Walmart employee who had only a pizza knife!

  • Derek the Donkey

    Bang goes any chance of a future. Its hard enough finding work as it is for ex military. Now with a criminal record our hero is screwed!

    • Jean

      If he can snipe, we have a job for him… And a few dozen others.
      We should do a Kickstarter funding campaign to clean up the city on the hill.

      • Derek the Donkey

        He may be on Facebook. Look him up urgently.

  • buttcrackofdoom

    surround the jail and demand HIS release, WITH his guns……sounds simple enough………where ARE the citizens? who ARE these people living in oregon now?

    • RickE.

      Most folks are truly sheeple. No one will do shit.
      But it should be quite clear now as to whom are enemies really are!

    • Jean

      Oregon and Washington are both Utopian Liberals, I understand. Worthless scumbags are the HIGH end of society there.

      • ENFP

        Don’t paint all Oregonians and Washingtonians with the same brush. Those on the east side are different, even part of the American Redoubt.

        • American-American

          Not all defenders of Constitutional law are on the East side of the states of WA and OR. We are on the West side too. We have a huge job ahead of us trying to restore the Constitution and to educate the heavily indoctrinated. Those who are so quick to become politically correct for the sake of being accepted got so open minded their brains fell out. The brainwashers took it from there. If you listen to what they say it will be almost exactly the same as anybody else who has adhered to the fraudulent social experiment. It will be our demise if we do not restore morality.

    As usual we will act once Coronation Street and X Factor have finished.
    BTW did UC Attraction? Vote for them on Britains Got Talent. Even Simon Cowell cried!

    Lt. Mike Budreau: Grow a pair, you whiney little bitch, and release the veretran you are illegally detaining.

  • Heimdall

    Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau is a liar, a traitor, and a tyrant. Abolish police forces in favor of Sheriff’s departments with elected Shreriffs who can be voted out of office when they have tyrannical lying traitor scum like Budreau working for them.

  • Charles

    Shudda shot the POS dead!!

  • Andy

    Should have waited until he broke in then shot him in the leg,then five minutes later or if he tried to escape shot him in the other leg,then shoot him in the hands,then in the gut,let him lay there and suffer some then shoot him in the heart,if the POS has one.Keep you powder dry.
