Self-defense in Las Vegas

I don’t think there are too many good Samaritans like this in the world today. Man Dead After Shooting – AM 720 KDWN

Police say the woman had signs of abuse and was bleeding from the face. It’s believed she ran from her apartment and was being chased by her boyfriend when he got into an argument with a neighbor. That’s when the neighbor shot and killed the boyfriend.

I’m not sure I could intervene for a neighbor in this way. I wish I was sure that I could, but if I’m being honest, I probably would only call 911.

Anyway going by this report, Las Vegas Metro Police seem to believe it is a justified shooting.

Armed Homeowner Stops Home Invasion

IF you break into homes, you will eventually find and armed homeowner. Homeowner Shoots Home Invaders – AM 720 KDWN

Two guys try to break into a home from the back yard. One ends up dead. One ends up shot in the butt. Unfortunately, one of the homeowners also was injured, by a gunshot wound to the arm.

The homeowner is not expected to be charged.

Because self-defense is a human-right.

20-yr-old Brit Gets Taste of US Justice System (As practiced in Nevada)

Justice His parents insist that he is disturbed and little Johnny Mikey wouldn’t hurt a fly unless someone put him up to it. Michael Sandford faces 30 years in prison for attempting to assassinate Donald Trump

Actually, the grand jury has only said that he should stand trial, but that will probably mean that there is no bail offered.

Michael Sandford, 20, is accused of trying to grab a police officer’s gun to shoot the presumptive Republican presidential nominee at a campaign rally in the city.

Sandford, who has a history of mental health problems, told police he drove from California to kill Mr Trump, and he went to a Las Vegas gun range to learn to shoot the day before the June 18 rally.

A “history of mental health problems” doesn’t mean that he is not competent to stand trial. Though the shrinks will be all over that.

You could also file this under “illegal alien commits crime,” because his visa expired some time ago.

Homeowners Are Armed, Home-invaders get shot. (Apparently this memo hasn’t circulated)

If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed homeowner. The results should not surprise anything.
