Being Pissed About Service Is No Reason To Lose Your Life

Or to take someone else’s life. But people are crazy. The Latest: Police: Worker shot man who opened fire in IHOP.

In a statement, police said Turner was picking up a carryout order and became “disruptive and loud regarding the service at the business.”

After a confrontation, police said Turner pulled a handgun and started firing at employees, striking Brown and another worker. Police said the wounded employee “then pulled a handgun and shot the customer-shooter in self-defense of others.”

IHOP will be firing this hero employee in three, two…. (That’s a guess, based on the fact that most companies would rather see dead employees than live survivors of an attack. Oh, they say things like “safety,” and “policy,” but that’s what it comes down to.)

In addition to the wounded guy who killed the attacker, the miscreant killed one employee.

The investigation is ongoing, but police don’t expect any arrests. Because self-defense is a human-right.

Self-defense in Alabama

Because you are able to legally defend yourself… No charges expected in Dale County shooting.

On Wednesday morning, an argument between two truck drivers concerning a parking space at a convenience store outside of Clayhatchee led to a shooting.

Dale County sheriff officials said they believe the shooting was an act of self-defense.

People need to keep asking themselves, “Is this worth it?” before they pick a fight.

Self-defense is a human-right.

A Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Maybe he thought an elderly man would be easy to rob. MCSO: Elderly resident shoots at would be burglar on Snow Road.

Authorities say an elder homeowner told deputies that a subject forced entry into his home and that he fired a shot at the subject.

They say the subject fled on foot, leaving his truck in front of the homeowner’s house.

In other words, he ran like a rabbit.

Self-defense is a human-right.

A Good Guy With a Gun

Thank God he was there. Dad at McDonald’s with kids shoots and kills masked gunman who opened fire.

Birmingham Police responded to the McDonald’s at around 10:45 p.m. Sunday after receiving reports that multiple people had been shot. When an employee opened the door to let a father and his two sons out of the restaurant, a masked man entered. The man then began shooting. Investigators say it is not clear whether he intended to rob the McDonald’s or was targeting someone inside.

The father then opened fire on the gunman, fatally wounding him. The unidentified dad and one of his kids, a minor, were also struck, but do not have life-threatening injuries.

The dad is not facing charges, though the investigation continues.

Self-defense is a human-right. And concealed carry works.

Self-defense is Legal in Alabama

I never thought she should have been arrested when I first heard about this incident. Selma woman charged in husband’s shooting death cleared by grand jury.

A Dallas County grand jury on Thursday heard testimony from 38-year-old Jacqueline Dixon and, when it was over, declined to issue an indictment against, said District Attorney Michael Jackson.

The investigators and DA’s office issued a murder-domestic violence warrant, but the Grand Jury declined to prosecute.

Good Guys 2, Bad Guys 0.

So how should an 80-year-old defend himself from 2 (much younger) miscreants if not with a gun? MCSO: homeowner in his eighties shoots suspected burglar.

So two guys try to break into a home in the middle of the afternoon on Wednesday. They set off an alarm, and that brings the homeowner home. Police were also responding.

Captain Paul Burch with the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office said, “The owner has been a victim of burglaries numerous times in recent months. The alarm went off, he responded to his house, encountered some burglars, some incidents occurred leading up to him firing some shots, and one burglar was struck.”

The guy who got shot ended up flagging down some cops for help. He was taken to a local hospital. Cops caught up with his partner-in-crime later in the day, and arrested him. A grand jury will decide if the homeowner should face charges, but it seems like the police believe he was within his rights to defend himself.

That is because self-defense is a human-right.

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed homeowner. Birmingham homeowner shoots home invasion suspect.

The shooting happened at about 2 a.m. at a home on 3rd Avenue North in the Eastlake area. Police said a man was breaking into a house when the homeowner shot him in the stomach.

The guy who got shot was taken to a local hospital in stable condition. The homeowner was NOT arrested. The investigation continues.

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