A Failure of the Victim-selection Process

CRIME SCENE DO NOT CROSSAnd Arizona has not become New Jersey. Yuma police investigate both alleged break-in and gunfire

Police say the man shot had gone to the house to find someone, and tried to open the front door. They say that’s when the resident opened fire.

The injured individual ran away. A friend, who was waiting for him in a car, took him to Yuma Regional Medical Center. Doctors say his injuries are serious, but not life-threatening.

The Moral of the story is don’t try to break into a house that isn’t yours.

Self-defense in The Windy City?

JusticeStranger things have happened. Woman claiming self-defense released from custody in fatal Park Manor stabbing.

A woman was released from police custody after citing self-defense in the fatal stabbing of a 42-year-old man during a domestic argument Sunday on the South Side.

After being choked and fearing for her life, the woman went to the kitchen of a Park Manor home and grabbed a knife, Chicago police said.

Use the tool you have on hand.

So the cops released her, but my guess is that this is one case that Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, better known as Crimesha in certain circles, will want to pursue. Can’t have people believing that they can take individual action and exercise individual responsibility. They might decide that the bureaucrats are not needed.

Self-defense is a human-right, but it may or may not be your legal right in Chicago.

Self-defense Is Legal In Montana

JusticeHe had a chance to walk away; he didn’t take it. Billings man killed near trailhead was shot in self-defense, Carbon County says; No charges expected.

That it took from April until September for the DA to decide that he couldn’t win this case, seems extreme, but then DA’s hate self-defense almost as much as the media.

After following the couple to their car, Rockman shattered the rear window and then began to assault J.H. hitting him several times with the stick and eventually wrestling him to the ground.

T.H. used bear spray on Rockman, which she carried while hiking, but Rockman seemed undeterred and continued to attack J.H.

She pulled a handgun and told him to back off, so he came after her. She fired one round at his leg.

Rockman appeared unfazed. J.H. shot Rockman in the chest, killing him.

There are more details in the story, that are interesting but mostly beside the point.

Self-defense is a human-right.

The Moral of the Story Is…

Don’t open your door in the middle of the night. Knock on man’s door in the middle of the night leads to forced entry, stabbing.

If someone was knocking on my door in the middle of the night, I would arm myself and get ready to call 911. What I wouldn’t do is open the door.

At this time, police said the early investigation shows that the victim was sleeping when he heard two men knock on his door. The victim told police when he went to see who was at his door, the two forced their way into his home and demanded him to “give it up.”

He ended up in the hospital with multiple lacerations.

This is categorized as “Self-defense” even though he didn’t defend himself. There are lessons that apply.

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

crime scene tapeThe Left will count this as a teen tragically shot. That he was shot in self-defense won’t matter to them. Police: Robbery suspect dead after victim shoots in self-defense

The two teenagers, armed with handguns, approached a small group of people and attempted to rob them, according to the news release.

One of the people in the group approached was a concealed-carry permit holder, [Des Moines police spokesman Sgt. Paul] Parizek said, who shot in self-defense.

One of the two died, the other is in a local hospital. The cops and DA are convinced it was self-defense. The robbery investigation is still open, since they haven’t arrested the guy in the hospital.

I don’t know what the law in Iowa is, but in some states, the would-be bad-guy who got shot could be charged with murder because someone died due to his decision to commit a felony. We will have to wait and see.

Self-defense is a human-right, and in Iowa it just might be your legal right.

So a man and a woman break into a home in northern Texas. They are met by an armed homeowner. What would you expect? This isn’t New Jersey.

During the 911 call, the homeowner stated he had shot at an unknown male and female, who had allegedly broken into his house through the back door. After the gunshot, both individuals fled the location in a vehicle.

Cops found the vehicle, and the two would-be home invaders. The man had been shot in the chest and was taken to a hospital. The woman was arrested on a parole violation.

He says Dalton Potter shot him in the back, and he knew right away it was the man that everyone had been looking for

The homeowner was able to get his own firearm.

According to the Howard County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to a home on Driver Road on Sunday afternoon for a report of a shooting.

When deputies arrived, they spoke with a homeowner who said he had walked into his home when he found a man inside. Both men were armed with handguns.

The homeowner shot the suspect, who ran away. He was identified a while later when he showed up at a local hospital. When the doctors were done with him, cops arrested him.

Of Course You Can Defend Your Family

CRIME SCENE DO NOT CROSSTell me how this would have ended if the “juvenile” didn’t have access to a firearm. Police: Juvenile shot, killed man inside Batesville apartment, possibly in self-defense.

Witnesses at the scene told investigators the juvenile shot the man, who was allegedly armed with a knife and attacking the juvenile’s mother.

Both the child and his mother are cooperating with authorities, and the Franklin County prosecutor said he would not pursue criminal charges until police complete their investigation.

So according to the Left, any firearms should have been “locked, securely away” from this kid, so that the only course of action available was to stand by and watch as this guy killed his mother. Or take on a grown man, who was armed with a knife, and obviously not to worried about inflicting harm.

So. I wish someone on the gun-hating Left would tell me how a dead mother, and an orphaned child would someone be preferable to dead miscreant.

Even though no one has been identified, I’m going to assume this was a domestic-violence encounter.

Self-defense is a human-right.

It was Mitchell, however, who was arrested on a count of aggravated assault with a firearm and booked Thursday morning into Assumption Parish Detention Center in Napoleonville, deputies said in a statement.

He was threatened, with grave bodily injury or death, and he defended himself.

“The suspect allegedly made entry into her home,” said Shirley Miller, spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Station. “The victim went into a room of her house, and it sounds like the suspect made entry into the room where the victim was at.”

The suspect reportedly was unarmed, but the victim was not, Miller noted, citing a report taken at the scene.

Police say a 30-year-old man was at the car wash and was approached by two male suspects who revealed a handgun and attempted to rob the car wash patron.

The car wash patron was armed and police said he “exchanged gunfire with one of the alleged robbers.” During the shooting, one of the robbers — now identified as a 16-year-old boy from Detroit — was shot and later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Cops arrested the victim of the robbery, but later released him. Everything will be reviewed by the DA.

Authorities have determined that a woman who opened fire on another woman during an assault in Easton on Aug. 17 did so in self-defense.

On Saturday, Aug. 29, at about 12:40 a.m., police responded to the Comfort Inn, 5660 Tillman’s Corner Parkway, in reference to one shot. When officers arrived, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. A woman said that she and the victim, her boyfriend, were exiting the room when her ex-boyfriend, who was outside the room, began to physically assault the boyfriend. The boyfriend was slammed to the ground, causing the ex-boyfriend’s gun to fall from his waistband.

Yes, he was shot with his own gun.

There are several lessons to be learned from this encounter, but I will leave identifying them to you, as a homework exercise.

Deputies arrived shortly after and attempted first aid on the suspect “to no avail,” [Polk County Sheriff Grady] Judd said.

This was after a bit of a crime spree, and Sheriff Judd said the dead guy did have a criminal history.
