Oh, and self-defense is legal in Florida. Largo Police: Good Samaritan Acted in Self Defense When He Shot Man.
He was down in the road, and people thought he had been hit by a car. They called for help and urged him to wait for that help.
Police said Girardin turned toward both men who were following him, produced a box cutter, and charged at them in a threatening manner. The witness, who was standing next to the Good Samaritan, said he was in fear for his life. The Good Samaritan fired one round from his weapon, striking Giradin in the upper left leg. The Good Samaritan then applied a belt on Giradin’s leg to act as a tourniquet. Largo Fire Rescue arrived about that time.
The guy who got shot is in the hospital. Police are investigating charges of aggravated assault against this guy with the DA’s office. They have said the Good Samaritan acted in self-defense. Which is a human-right. And in Florida, it is your legal right.
This is the kind of thing the gun-hating-Left says never happens. (Never say never.) Witness pulls out gun, stops suspect from kidnapping 11-year-old girl, police say.
According to Sgt. Tommy Thompson with Phoenix police, the suspect approached the girl from behind, grabbed her arm and pulled it behind her back and put his arm over her face while she was walking to school near 19th Avenue and Bell Road on April 3.
When the suspect started talking to the girl, a witness knocked him down and told him to leave the girl alone.
The Good Samaritan only ran the creep off and didn’t try to hold him for police. (Hat tip to MaddMedic.)
While this remains a tragedy, since the guy killed his wife, the witness stopped him from hurting anyone else, or getting away. Witness ‘eliminated a threat’ by shooting man who killed his wife at Tenn. dentist office.
A man shot and killed his wife at a dentist office, but a citizen with a concealed carry permit shot the suspect, which authorities said likely prevented anyone else from being hurt.
The county sheriff had the nice things to say. Click thru.
I’m sure the guy shot his wife because he thought he loved her. Or something. The guy who got shot was taken to hospital.</p
Self-defense is a human-right.
Two guys (father and son) approached him, and one of them was armed. They probably thought a guy driving a Subaru wasn’t likely to be armed. No charges in fatal road rage case.
No charges will be filed as a result of an Aug. 5, 2018, road rage incident in eastern Wilkes County that left a man dead and his son severely injured, according to a statement sent by District Attorney Tom Horner’s office and identified as being jointly made by Horner and Wilkes Sheriff Chris Shew.
The statement said, “Not only would it be impossible for a jury to determine beyond a reasonable doubt that either surviving individual to this tragedy was guilty of a crime, but that an initial indictment would be impossible to be obtained from a grand jury based upon a lesser burden of proof being that of probable cause.”
The events that lead up to this, make the entire incident pointless, but the dead guy and his son – in the eyes of the law – put this guy in a position where he feared for his life, and so he was legally able to defend himself. (And because he had a concealed carry license, he was actually able to defend himself.)
The media coverage is even a bit positive. Woman With Concealed Carry License Who Shot Robber Called A ‘Hero’.
Residents are praising the 25 year-old woman, with a concealed carry license, who shot and killed a man who was trying to rob her at a bus stop.
She shot him in the neck, but then he grabbed her gun and ran off. Cops found him a short distance away. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Don’t expect this to change the minds of any of the Chicago gun-haters.
But self-defense is a human-right, and Chicago may even be recognizing it as a legal right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
(HeyJackass! shows 4 fatal and 14 non-fatal self-defense shootings in 2018 in Chicago, though the stats are not limited it to cases only involving a firearm.)
Yet another failure of the Victim-selection Process. Police: Man shoots robbery suspects in Logan Square.
two male suspects with handguns got out of a silver Nissan and told the man they were robbing him, police said. The man, who is a concealed carry license and firearm owner’s identification card holder, shot both suspects, police said.
Self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 2, Bad Guys 0.
I could start this the same as the previous post – “Two men walk into a
bar convenience store.” Held at gunpoint in Christmas Day robbery, customer pulled his own weapon, NC cops say.
While the would-be robbers held the people in the store at gunpoint, “one of the patrons was armed and shot at the two robbers,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a press release.
The Sheriff’s Office thinks both miscreants were injured, and the have arrested one. They are looking for 2 more (2nd guy in the store plus a driver.)
Self-defense is a human-right.
