This from Florida, where people seem to forget that everyone has a gun, even (or maybe especially) convenience-store clerks:
The Miami Herald reports that the man, 34-year-old Stephon Brown, allegedly entered the Valero at about 5 a.m. and “pulled out a gun to rob the place.” The clerk responded by pulling his own gun and shooting Brown multiple times.
Brown was able to run out of the store and cross the street before collapsing in front of a McDonald’s.
We will now have a brief pause to allow the applause, cheers and catcalls to subside… nah, the hell with it. Go right ahead.
Seems as though the Jackals Of The Press (JOTP©) may have jumped the gun, so to speak, once the charges against Kyle Rittenhouse are examined in detail:
The story of Kyle Rittenhouse is more than a gripping piece of news, it is a telling philosophical Rorschach test. A lone individual stood up to a mob of violent felons, abusers, and pedophiles, asserting his right to live over their lust for his blood, and won. While the American public, generous in their deference for human life, and may have paused in horror at the shootings, the tide of public opinion is turning for Kyle as the deluge of exculpatory facts break through the dam of misinformation. Americans should take note at which institutions were quick to back Kyle, which condemned him, and the cowards in between.
Considering the facts of the case and the state laws governing Wisconsin, it becomes clear that Kyle’s actions were not reckless — the prosecutor’s decisions were.
In fact, given the the circumstances and the nature of Rittenhouse’s attackers, we might even, and justifiably term this a Righteous Shooting. Follow the link to the story and the links within, and you’ll see why.
Let’s hope this turns out well for the boy, although when it comes to asshole, thuggish prosecutors I have little faith in the legal system.
Seems like this
asshole I mean suspected asshole was in the habit of beating his wife, so in the end she fled to a relative’s house for sanctuary. Abusive Hubby didn’t take to this idea, so he kicked down Kind Relative’s door and rampaged into the house.
Whereupon Kind Relative became Not-So-Kind Relative, and shot Abusive Hubby dead.
[pause to let the cheers and applause die down]
Details here, but you got most of them. It’s Floriduh, so unless there’s more to the story, the cops won’t do anything untoward.
Oh, and it turns out that The Late was using a .380 ACP pistol, but Our Hero was either using something bigger, or else was a better shot.
From sunny Seffrica comes this lovely story.
Executive summary: three choirboys run into a church waving guns and try to appropriate the entire congregation’s cash. Only problem: the church in question is located in a deeply conservative part of the country, and one of the congregants is an ex-cop. Result: two choirboys dead, one possibly wounded.
You may now applaud.
And from the comments to the article comes this priceless observation:
Note the upvote : downvote ratio.
As the Left ramps up its little reindeer games, expect more of this kind of thing:
“As we’re walking down passing Fourth Street, a blue car just come swerving out into the middle of the street almost runs over a bunch of protesters and everybody around starts like smacking the car trying to get him to slow down,” the witness said. “He pulls down his window and he fires three shots into the guy. From point-blank. No words no nothing. And then rolls up his window and zooms off.”
I’m not saying this is a good thing — despite my Yosemite Sam online persona, I dread having to shoot someone again — but at some point, the “kill everybody” switch is going to be thrown by ordinary people, especially when these rioting thugs start blocking roads, stopping cars and trying to assault the drivers and passengers.
Used to be that peaceful protests were confined (by the police) to sidewalks, with lots of chanting, signs and so on. Peaceful stuff. But that police action seems to have gone by the board — whether by negligence or design I can’t say — and inevitably, as police presence diminishes, the thugs will become bolder and more violent as they get the impression that “We own the streets!”
So I blame city management for this — muzzling police has long been a hallmark of Leftist government — and if the winds have been sown, both rioters and their government backers can expect whirlwinds; which will invite rioters to start carrying guns to these “peaceful protests”, and off we go on the hurricane of violence.
Which, by the way, is exactly what the Leftist nomenklatura wants to happen.
Remember the Afghan girl who shot two Taliban assholes dead after they’d killed her mom and dad? Good stuff, huh?
But wait: there’s MOAR!
A teenage girl hailed a hero for gunning down two Taliban extremists who shot her parents dead in Afghanistan ‘killed her own husband’ when she opened fire, according to fresh reports.
Qamar Gul, 15, was married to one of the two attackers she shot with an AK-47 after he tried to seize her back in a family feud.
Well, that’s going to be a tough one for gun-confiscating feministicals to get their heads around…
