Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Concealed Carry stops another robbery. Shots fired in thwarted robbery attempt – The Covington News

This all happened just past midnight on April 18th.

An NCSO spokesperson said the homeowner had just arrived home when he was approached by an unknown male suspect brandishing a handgun who demanded his property.

When the suspect raised his gun, the homeowner drew his own weapon and fired a shot.

The would-be bad-guy ran like a rabbit.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Concealed Carry Stops Armed Robbery

This is the story the Left says never happens. Customer fatally shoots would-be robber in Gary | WGN-TV

Two men approached an employee at a used car lot in the 400 block of W. Ridge Rd in Gary. They pulled out a gun and tried to rob him this Wednesday afternoon.

But a customer at the lot pulled out his own gun and shot and killed one suspect in self defense.

The 2nd guy ran like a rabbit and police are still looking for him.

Prosecutors REALLY Hate Self-defense

JusticeThey will do almost anything to charge someone, even when the circumstances are clear. DA files motion to withdraw involuntary manslaughter charges

The Criminal Justices System is not interested in Justice. It is interested in winning. Some members of the system are also interested in reinforcing the idea that you must be completely dependent on the state for your safety. (Otherwise they might be out of a job!) And they have not dropped all charges against this woman.

First let’s talk about the 911 tape. Originally the prosecutor had this woman – who shot her abusive husband – in jail on $100,000 bond. Her lawyer got that reduced to $25,000 when the judge heard the 911 tape.

On the 911 tape, Helena Crosby was heard begging dispatchers for help during the Sept. 24 incident. On the recording, dispatchers told Helena Crosby to lock the doors and stay inside while police were on the way, but as Helena Crosby and the dispatcher were talking her husband re-entered the home and Helena Crosby began to scream just moments before she allegedly shot him.

She is charged with aggravated assault and simple assault.

Helena Crosby’s attorney, Joel Wiest, of Sunbury, said the charges should have never been placed on his client because she is innocent. Wiest said his client acted in self-defense because she was physically abused for years by her husband.

“The facts unerringly show that Helena (Crosby) was in reasonable fear for her life at the time of the incident in question and therefore she can’t possibly be guilty of any of the charges against her,” Wiest said.

But the prosecutor – Northumberland County District Attorney Tony Matulewicz – can’t advance his own career with that story.

An Epic Fail of the Victim-selection Process

If you are going to break into homes, you shouldn’t pick the home of a cop. Off-duty officer shoots man trying to break into home on…

So the cop and his family woke up in response to someone banging on the door at 12:30 AM.

“The sergeant armed himself and came to door yelling several commands, ‘Who are you?’ ‘What do you want?'” Acevedo said. “The suspect ignored commands and questions and kept pounding on the door.”

When he broke a window on his way to breaking in, the officer shot several times, hitting the would-be bad-guy at least once.

So does this qualify as “Stupid Criminals.”

Newsflash: NPR Doesn’t Like Armed Self-defense

I’m shocked – Shocked! – to discover that a Leftist “news” organization doesn’t like guns and gun owners. How Often Do People Use Guns In Self-Defense? : NPR. OK, I’m not that shocked.

They bemoan the fact that there are not good statistics, and they ignore – or gloss over – one of the largest groups of armed self-defense categories. The one that never makes the news, because no one got shot. The case where the would-be bad guy ran like a rabbit when he realized he had suffered a breakdown of the victim-selection process.

The category the do manage to COMPLETELY ignore, is the change in behavior caused by the knowledge that some of their would-be targets could be armed.

I could point to the way burglars in the UK don’t bother to check to see if anyone is home, because they know no one will be armed. I could point to the shift seen in Florida after the institution of SHALL ISSUE concealed carry where robbery decreased and property crime (stealing cars, stealing from cars, stealing for unoccupied dwellings, etc.) increased. Because the bad guys got the message that some robbery victims would be armed.

But these kinds of issues are not of interest to the “journalists” at NPR, because they are not really interested in anything but promoting the anti-gun agenda.

There was a time when I gave large amounts of cash to NPR every year. But that is decades ago now. They are so far to the Left they can’t see the center from where they are.

He Thought He Was a Tough Guy. But in the End, She Was Tougher.

He had made threats earlier in the day. Then he decided it would be a good idea to get a shotgun and break into their home. Man with shotgun forces his way into home. But homeowner’s girlfriend arms herself, makes him pay.

When he opened the door a crack, in response to a knock, two men in masks (at least 1 armed) barged in. The homeowner then engaged in a struggle with the guy who had the shotgun on the living room floor.

And with that, Mueller said Anthony’s girlfriend got another gun — WSPA described it as a 9 mm — and fatally shot Alley as the second intruder ran off and is still at large, the station said.

The 2nd guy took off running. And they believe there was a woman there as well.

Defense of self – or of a family member/loved-one – is a human-right.

Crossbow Stops Home Invasion

Whatever weapon is at hand, is the one to use. Man shot with crossbow during attempted break-in.

A man sustained an injury after being shot with a crossbow in the 1000 block of Old Williamsburg Road near the Chickahominy YMCA.

Police say the injured man was the person who was committing the crime.

He thought breaking into someone’s home was a good idea. I wonder if he will learn anything from this experience. (He is expected to survive.)

Self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
