Retired police officer (now pastor) defends himself from a robber. On this Armed Citizen File, Ginny Simone shares a story from Detroit, Michigan, where an intruder picked the wrong church to rob. After 25 years as a Detroit police officer, Pastor Lawrence Adams was fully prepared to defend himself and the church when the trespasser attacked him. Adams warned the man that he was a retired officer, but when the attack continued, Adams was forced to fire his handgun at the criminal.
