Apple iPhone wins caliber wars

A Miami homeowner was able to get a suspected car burglar to lie down on the ground with his hands behind his back Monday evening by holding his iPhone like a gun on the man until police arrived, according to a report.

“I immediately called 911, and while talking to the police, I came outside. I pointed the phone to him, and I said, ‘Lay down.’ I start screaming, ‘What are you doing there?’ And he tried to come towards me, and I said, ‘Stay there. Don’t come here,’” the homeowner said of the suspect, later identified as Sheldon Johnson, 27.


Cant say I recommend it but I respect results and quick thinking.

Sounds like a fantastic way to get shot. Glad it worked out for this guy but I certainly wouldn’t try it.
