Most of the time, Righteous Shootings take place inside a house, as a homeowner protects life and home against the predations of goblins intent on unauthorized property redistribution and / or unwanted sexual advances, etc.
But this is America, where a mall can also feature such an event:
Breitbart News reported that a suspect opened fire in the Greenwood Park Mall food court around 6 p.m.
The attacker was able to kill three people before a 22-year-old armed citizen intervened, shooting the attacker dead.
Bravo, kid. We’re all proud of you. As are the police:
Greenwood, Indiana, police chief Jim Ison described the 22-year-old who shot and killed a mall attacker as the “hero of the day.”
You betcha, Chief. Only in some disgusting country (e.g. New York) could someone be arrested for doing something like this.
The Simon Property Group, which owns the mall, states in its code of conduct that no weapons are allowed at their shopping centers. The policy was last updated in April 2020.
Bet they’re glad someone broke their pissy little rule now. And they are:
“We grieve for the victims of yesterday’s horrific tragedy in Greenwood. Violence has no place in this or any other community. We are grateful for the strong response of the first responders, including the heroic actions of the Good Samaritan who stopped the suspect.”
Uh huh. I’ve seldom obeyed the “no weapons” signs anyway, unless there are metal detectors inside.
