Neighbors Are Shocked

Shocked to discover that their zip code doesn’t protect them from crime. Police say attempted burglary leaves one man shot to death in Spring Park.

One person is dead, and another detained. Cops won’t say if it is a homeowner or intruder who was shot. So, on to the neighbors.

“There’s crime everywhere, but I didn’t expect it around the block,” neighbor Melanie Blackburn said. “It’s concerning. That shouldn’t happen in the neighborhood.”

If you can read this, then you live in The Real World™ and not Mayberry RFD or Pleasantville. And in the Real World crime can, and sometimes does happen. Unless you live in a gated community, with guards, where you live doesn’t ensure no crime. Statistics are all about averages, not absolutes.

The Media Is Not Giving Us the Whole Story. Again

It’s almost like they are biased against gun owners. Texas homeowner shoots man he caught sleeping in front yard, deputies say.

They are going on and on about the guy being asleep. He had been asleep. Past tense. Then the attack started.

The man had allegedly been sleeping in the yard, and the homeowner woke him up. That’s when he confronted the man and got into a physical fight with him on the lawn.

When the man lunged at him, the homeowner opened fire, hitting him in the arm and abdomen.

Neighbors are shocked to discover that they live in The Real World™ and in Texas. Before he was shot, he was banging on doors and banging on cars in the neighborhood.

Neighbor Melissa Elrod said the commotion of the banging on her garage door woke up her daughter around 4:30 a.m. Moments later, she heard shots.

“It’s scary, it’s scary. My daughter is five feet from that,” Elrod said.

Self-defense is a human-right.

First He Got Shot, Then He Got Arrested

I’m guessing his day didn’t go the way he planned. Suspect shot then arrested following burglary call in Sherwood. And neighbors were shocked.

He apparently knew someone in the house.

The incident happened on Tuesday night at a home on Community Cove, according to an arrest report.

“The suspect was gone when we got there,” Sgt. Drew Edwards says.

Edwards says Calloway left the scene shortly after getting shot and took himself to a nearby hospital.

Cops arrested him at the hospital. The neighbors?

The crime has some neighbors shaken up, despite living in a place that they otherwise describe as safe.

“We’ve got police cars that come down through here two or three times a day,” Vicki LaSpina says, who lives just a few blocks away from where it happened.

Because they didn’t realize they were living in The Real World™ where crime can and sometimes does happen. Oh, and self-defense is a human-right.

Self-defense in Memphis

Oh, and neighbors are shocked scared. East Memphis woman shoots burglar after he kicks down her door.

He was looking for somebody. He found somebody, but not who he was looking for.

Police say William Barnes was shot after he kicked in the front door of a home on South Holmes Street. Four days later the shooting still has one neighbor traumatized

The guy who got shot – several times – ended up at a local hospital, where he was arrested and charged with aggravated burglary.

The neighbor? She shocked and dismayed to discover that she lives in The Real World™ and some fantasy land.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do right now. I mean, it’s so disturbing that this happened.”

After a week she says that. (I am woman, hear me cry hysterically.)

Neighbors Are Terrified

By the realization that they live in a place where crime, and police action, can take place. Spokane Valley neighbors call Saturday’s fatal shooting ‘unsettling’.

Reports of a guy who was apparently high, and bothering kids. Cops get there and he runs for a homeless camp, then stops and pretty much tells the cops he has a weapon, so they shoot him.

The homeless camp? No big deal. The guy who was high, hanging around kids? Apparently that is not a problem. The cops on the other hand…

“It’s terrifying. And that’s our backyard,” said neighbor Crystal Runions. “What if my youngest had said, ‘hey, can I go out with my friends and play with my Nerf guns?’ and they were just running around and one of those bullets went stray and took our one of our kids?”

What do you expect from Washington State?

But if you can read this, then you live in The Real World™ where crime can, and sometimes does, happen, and that usually results in some kind of action by the police. Up to and including shooting the bad guys.

They Took The Money, Then Shot a 79-year-old Woman in the Back

We are constantly told by the gun-hating Left to just give the Bad Guys what they want, and they will leave us alone. These guys didn’t get that memo. Hunt for 79-year-old store owner’s killers continues.

“For someone to come in, do a robbery, take the money, just like they asked, and then shoot them in the back, there you go. At this point, we even have criminals out looking for them,” said Detective Ed Troyer, with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

Violent criminals do not stop being violent criminals because of anything you are doing, or not doing.

And neighbors were shocked to discover that they live and work in The Real World™ and not in some fantasy land.

“To come in here and blemish our neighborhood and feel our safety is threatened is really hard to believe,” Larry Chambers said.

Because they want to feel safe, even if they aren’t safe.

Neighbors Are Shocked

And self-defense works, even in Eastern Pennsylvania (deep blue as it is.) Person taken to hospital after shooting in New Hanover Township.

Police said this shooting was “domestic related.” Initial reports said an intruder had been shot by a homeowner.

Both can be true at the same time. Reporters seem confused on that score. As for the neighbors…

Neighbors said they’re shocked something like this would happen on their quiet street.

Sorry, but if you can read this you live in The Real World™ where crime can, and often does, happen. You are not protected by your zip-code. Crime doesn’t only happen to “other kinds of people” in other kinds of places.” You should plan accordingly.
