A Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Concealed carry is legal in Ohio. The bad guys apparently haven’t gotten that memo. Teen was shot by the victim he was robbing. Now his partner has been charged with murder.

Around 5 a.m. Saturday, investigators say two 15-year-old boys tried to rob an unidentified victim in the 3600 block of Reading Road.

The victim fired at the teens, striking 15-year-old Jordan Lara. He was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

The actual shooter, the victim of the robbery, is not facing any charges. However, the surviving teen is.

The lawyers call it all kinds of things, but those of us who aren’t lawyers usually call it Felony Murder. (Whatever you call it, the Left HATES it.) If you are committing a crime, you are responsible for all of the bad things that can result from that crime. And trying to rob someone can result in a self-defense shooting. Holding people responsible for the foreseeable outcomes of their actions? I know, it is such a 20th Century concept.

Self-defense is a human-right.
