He Apparently Went to the Home to Settle a Score

Or something. So how did that work out? Police: Man killed in home invasion shootout.

He knew the homeowner. He broke into the home. The homeowner confronted him. They exchanged gunfire.

Investigators said the suspect broke into the home to assault the man who lives there.

While still under investigation, cops say it looks like a case of self-defense, which is a human-right.


Good Guys 3, Bad Guys 0

A failure of the victim-selection process. Suspect shot and killed during attempted robbery in Moultrie.

Two armed miscreants enter a gas station with the intent to rob it. One clerk opens fire. One of the bad guys is hit multiple times. A clerk is struck in the leg with a bullet, but has been released from the hosptial.

They say 19-year-old suspect, Jaelon Powell, suffered multiple gunshot wounds. About an hour after he was admitted to a local hospital, he died from his injuries.

“Unfortunately, Mr. Powell lost his life as a result of trying to commit an armed robbery,” said Lt. Freddie Williams, with the Moultrie Police Department.

The other robber and the getaway driver have both been arrested. They are both facing felony murder charges in the death of their accomplice. (Cue the outrage from the Left in three, two, one…)

Self-defense is a human-right.

Self-defense is Legal in Georgia

But then I always suspected that it was. Police: Deadly shooting at Atlanta park was self-defense.

“Based on the investigation, this case is being treated as a felon killed by private citizen (which essentially means self-defense),” police spokeswoman Lisa Bender said Wednesday in a statement.

The case will end up with the DA, but the cops are calling it self-defense. Which is a human-right. Apparently it is also your legal-right in Georgia. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.

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.)
