At some point, you’d think that
scumbags choirboys in Texas would get the hint that their little undocumented wealth redistribution plans may be a little more complicated here than they would be, say, in San Francisco or Portland. But no:
Texas authorities say an armed customer intervened during the attempted robbery of a fried chicken fast food restaurant, fatally wounding one gunman and sending a second suspect struck by gunfire to the hospital.
The story of the second one, while tragic, is noteworthy because without Our Hero, the cops would probably still be looking for the goblin. Instead, he faces the needle because there was a witness to the killing, and under Texas law he goes straight to the head of the line.
And it’s getting more difficult in other states, too:
allegedhome intruder attacked an armed homeowner in Atlanta, Georgia, Monday afternoon and was shot and killed.
He was inside the guy’s house, where he assumed room temperature after being ventilated. There’s no “alleged” about it.
KWCH reports that the incident occurred about 7 p.m., and the suspect allegedly started by pounding on a door at a neighbor’s house.
The suspect then focused on a second home, where the armed homeowner called the police and asked them to come quickly because he did not want to have to shoot the man. But the suspect allegedly kept attacking.
The homeowner said, “[He] threw 2 bricks through my window and tried to crawl through in my window and told me he was going to kill me and kinds of other things. So, unfortunately, I had to shoot him.”
Nothing unfortunate about it, old son; the son of a bitch sounds like he needed killing. Sadly, he’s only “critical”, but we can hope. Anyway, for all these heroes:
