Same old story: guy misbehaves on the road, gets pissy when he’s nearly knocked over, decides to get all shooty, and instead is shot dead by the innocent driver in self-defense.
As soon as you’ve stopped applauding, feel free to guess the race of the corpus delicti. Clue: his name is JaDerek Gray, and he was no doubt on his way to choir practice.
Carry on; nothing more to see here. Fort Worth, baby.
Seems as though this punk kid decides that he wants to do something about overpopulation, i.e. shooting everyone he could in an apartment complex. He manages to kill an old lady (no doubt getting a nod of approval from NYGov “Granny-Killer” Cuomo), but at that point, an Olde Pharte decides that enough is enough, and shoots the little bastard dead with his… hunting rifle.
[pause to let the cheers, applause hooting, hollering and catcalls die down]
This being Arkansas, I doubt whether anything more need be said about this.
Read all about it here.
My old buddy, the late (and sorely-missed) Airboss used to keep next to his front door not a shotgun, but a bolt-action .308 because, as he explained, “I can take care of myself; it’s my neighbors who might need protection.”
Quod erat demonstratum.
I’m exercising my editorial prerogative on this one to include “clubbing” with “shooting”, as Our Hero used a shotgun to send a choirboy to his justified end:
An 82-year-old Vietnam War veteran beat an armed home invader to death with the butt end of a shotgun to protect his 79-year-old wife after the invader attacked her in their home in South Carolina on Monday.
…and we’re talking ten (10!) butt-strokes.
of course, we get the prerequisite “you shouldn’t do that” warning from the fuzz:
Captain Eric Abdullah, a spokesman for the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, advised all residents to immediately contact law enforcement if they believe their home is being broken into. “Of course, folks have the right to defend themselves if their lives are in danger, but the best thing to do is to call for help.”
Call for help in carting the scumbag’s corpus delicti away, would be my advice.
If this story doesn’t put a smile on your face and bring out an “Attaboy!”, I don’t want to talk to you.
Oh man… when this is the outcome, you just have to read the article (and watch the video):
Seconds after police pulled up, the man attacked a female officer, striking her twice with a screwdriver. Most everyone on the scene then shot Payton 14 times.
And quit that sniggering.
snigger (v.) — the snort of laughter you make when some dumbass Black guy gets shot while committing a felony.
Hero homeowner whacks asshole just released from jail.
Pretty much all you need to know right there, except:
The homeowner is not facing any charges in the incident.
Which reminds me: I need to get in some shotgun practice.
And just in time for Christmas, from the great state of Texas comes this excellent news:
The caller told 911 dispatch that her ex-boyfriend was breaking into her home, Officer Haley Morrow said. Then she fired a gun and hit the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene, she said.
Jefferson County Precinct One Justice of the Peace Ben Collins, Sr. said the man had a gunshot wound to the chest and was from Georgia. He said the homeowner fired one shot which struck the man in the chest and he has ordered an autopsy.
A one-shot kill? Let’s hear it for the lady:
Wish we could be told the details, i.e. what gun, what caliber, what kind of boolet, etc. But let’s not quibble too much.
