Relatives of Dead Criminals Don’t Like Self-defense

The ongoing series of families convinced little Johnny would never do anything wrong. Man shot allegedly breaking into home was turning his life around, mother says.

The family of a man who was shot and killed after a homeowner said he tried to break in say they think there is more to the story

Because what else do they have? Painful truth is not in vogue in 21st Century America.

Police said Sanders walked up the couple’s driveway at their home in Gainesville around 9 a.m. Oct. 15. The homeowner said he tried to get into the house, and when she called 911 he threatened her.

“I got on the phone to call 911, and he leaned his face in and said, ‘I’ll tell you what: If you’re calling the law, that’ll be the last time you ever called anybody,'” she said.

Police said Sanders didn’t stop trying to break in after she called police.

He ended up being shot with a shotgun, and died a few days later.

The family doesn’t believe it. Apparently, a law abiding couple lured him to their property and for no reason shot him in the neck with a shotgun. Or something. </sarcasm> He spent time in prison. There is a 911 call.


Six Months On From Atlanta Being Hacked

Atlanta was hit with a ransomware attack at the end of March. SamSam to be precise. City of Atlanta: Cyber attack ‘over’.

There is much they don’t know. Who hacked them. What the final cost is going to be. (Though it could be in the millions.)

The CBS46 Bulldog was first to uncover an audit that warned the city of their vulnerability months before the breach. We were the first to report the Atlanta Police Department lost valuable data which could impact the availability of investigative evidence.

No one is talking because there is still an ongoing criminal investigation, and hopes for insurance payouts.

If I was the sort of person to place a bet, I would wager that the audit mentioned in the quote was accompanied by a proposal (either internal or from a consulting company) to remedy at least some of the items that were turned up. I would also wager that the response was either, “We don’t have that kind of money” or “Everything works fine the way it is.”

Some city departments lost 16 years of digital records in the original hack. No word on if they got any of that back. It impacted 911 some, but it didn’t shut them down, though some departments were just closed for a few days.

Have copies of your data. Have copies offline. Have copies offsite. (A fire can be just as devastating as a hack.) Have copies on different media.

Didn’t Matter that She is 89-yrs Old. She Didn’t OBEY

Which is usually a capital offense. Georgia police taser 87-year-old grandmother who was cutting flowers for not following orders.

Law enforcement officials say the woman, Martha Al-Bishara, should have followed orders. But Al-Bishara does not speak English and did not understand the officer’s request, her family says.

So it’s open-season on people who are hard of hearing, and people who don’t speak English.

Because if you don’t OBEY, you are to be destroyed. Even if you have no chance to obey, and even if you are no threat. (Don’t clutter the issue with facts! This is about your obedience to police authority.)

Nothing will happen to the cop, since the old woman didn’t die. And probably nothing would have happened if she had a heart attack and died. Because of Unlimited immunity. (Hat tip to Living Freedom.)

If You Killed Someone in a Traffic Accident, How Long Would the Investigation Last?

Especially if it was clear you ran a stop sign, while driving on the wrong side of the street. Cop Runs Stop Sign with No Lights On, Not Responding to a Call, and Kills a Man—Hasn’t Even Gotten a Ticket.

The cop in question is on paid vacation – excuse me, administrative leave – while they “investigate.”

According to officials, as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, Atlanta police Officer Ryan Chandler, 24, ran a stop sign and was not using emergency lights at the time of the crash. The man on the scooter was taken Grady Memorial Hospital, where he died. His name has not been released.

There is a witness to his driving on the wrong side of the street. I would like to know if he was given a breathalyzer test at the time of the incident, but I doubt it. (Those rules don’t apply to the cops!)

My (completely worthless prediction) is that the very worst he will suffer is that he resigns, and is back at a work in another police force within a few months. The least he will suffer is being on “administrative leave” while they sweep this under the rug. (Hat tip to Claire Wolfe.)

An Epic Fail of the Victim-selection Process

His day didn’t turn out at all the way he planned it. Police: Ex-Boyfriend Kicks in Door, Takes Bullet to Chest from Mother of Five

She broke up with him, but apparently he has the “How dare you live without me!” attitude. He came to her home and began trying to break in. She called 911, and armed herself.

Law enforcement indicated that the ex-boyfriend finally made entry into the home and came at the mother, even though she was armed and warned that she would shoot. She eventually fired three rounds, one of which struck the ex-boyfriend in the chest.

Lt. Cook said, “She was in fear of her life and was trying to defend herself and her family and use necessary force she felt was appropriate at the time.”

He will survive to face some measure of justice.

Sounds like cops believe this is a case of self-defense, which is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.

The Left Will Blame the Gun, Not the Person Responsible

And they will not blame the people who made this all possible, by ignoring and enabling a bad cop. Troubled officer shot and killed estranged wife, boyfriend

The DA who punted the Grand Jury presentation all those years ago. The brass who didn’t get rid of him, despite his questionable actions.

“The Glynn County Police Department has been protecting Cory Sasser for 20 years. They’ve protected him at every turn. And it sure seems like they did it again here,” said Bill Atkins, an Atlanta attorney who represented Small’s family in a wrongful death suit. The courts ruled Small’s constitutional rights weren’t violated

But that was years ago.

Sasser’s latest trouble started in May, when he tried to force his way into estranged wife’s home and threatened her. He was charged with domestic violence against Katie Kettles Sasser. A few days later, he drove his car into the woods and was in an hours-long standoff with police. They heard a gunshot and thought Sasser had killed himself. He hadn’t. But having a gun was a violation of his bond from the domestic violence case.

Still, he remained free on bond.

So after years of not wanting the rules to apply to him (and by extension other cops), we get this. He shot his estranged wife and her new boyfriend. Then after a brief pursuit by cops, he killed himself.

The Left will blame the gun, as if it had a mind of its own.

I blame the idiot who thought the attitude of “How dare you live without me!” made sense.

But I also blame the system that protected him for so long. 3 people are dead, (maybe more if you count his prior shootings – deemed justifed) where one person should be in jail.

Good Guys 3, Bad Guys 0

Self-defense hat-tricks are rare. Police: Man shoots 3 attempted robbers outside DeKalb shopping center

The couple were inside the store at the Wesley Chapel Square shopping center when they were followed by the three men, DeKalb police spokeswoman Shiera Campbell said.

Police said the male victim exchanged gunfire with the alleged robbers, injuring them. One of the men checked into the hospital, and the other two were found at the scene and brought to the hospital by first responders, police said.

The couple were unharmed.

Self-defense is a human-right. Twitter was awake with the idea that this would be counted as a “mass shooting” by the people who hate guns. Benjamin Disraeli was right. “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” (Hat tip to Knuckledraggin My Life Away – “Sometimes you just fuck with the wrong person.”)
