Because no one else is going to do it. Logan Square shop owner confronts looters, fires gun, detains one, prosecutors say.
A Logan Square store owner with a concealed carry license fired shots at hammer-wielding looters who confronted him in his shop early Monday, prosecutors said. The businessman even managed to detain one of the alleged intruders for police.
The smoke shop lost about 800 bucks worth of tobacco and vaping supplies, plus has to deal with the broken windows. Cops don’t believe any of the bad guys were shot, though he did fire shots when they charged him with hammers.
Someone please explain to me how this effort to liberate tobacco products honors the memory of anyone. “I swear to think of George Floyd when I smoke this box of stolen cigars.” No, that doesn’t cut it for me.
