Jesus Caballero, 17: Maybe a Pool Cue Upside His Head Will End His Young Burglary Career

Categories: Crime

Lesson learned, possibly
A man and his wife arrived at their southeast-side home shortly before midnight Thursday, only to find several dudes inside burglarizing the place.

Including 17-year-old Jesus P. Caballero. The other members of the group quickly and efficiently took off as fast as they could but Caballero, Houston police say, "became aggressive toward the homeowner."

Bad move, as it turned out. The owner of the home in the 16000 block of El Toro Court "then picked up a pool cue and struck Caballero on the head."

Caballero was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital with head trauma. His current condition has not been released.

No charges have been filed, but HPD says an investigation is continuing and "the aggravated assault" case will be referred to a grand jury to determine if the homeowner will be charged.

No word yet on whether the pool cue will cause Caballero to reconsider his apparent budding burglary career.

America: Where our "justice" system tries its best to charge its citizens with crimes regardless of justification.

he invaded this guy's home, got aggressive with him when he could have left, got the beating he so richly deserved, and now the homeowner is in trouble? I hope this grand jury has some sense.

You gotta be fuckin' kidding me!  They should give the homeowner a medal!  Now the little shit will probably sue!

this is why we have a castle doctrine, its better to kill them than face charges for beating them out of the door...

Just a pool cue? He could have been shot to death. Maybe he will learn a lesson but it is doubtful.

Why would the homeowner be charged?

 What the Fuck is right Jacob. every state and country should have a make my day style law. except for Iran and Yemen, and any country that supports piracy and terrorism.

 No, sh¡t!  Who in their right friggin' mind would charge someone for defendin' themselves in their own home?  Lucky for el burgular(s) the homeowner wasn't armed, or he might've taken 'em all out. Who would b¡tch about that?  O.K., maybe the company payin' the homeowner's insurance claim for clean-up & damages ...
