16-year-old Defends Himself from Hatchet-wielding Relative

There is much in the media/Left about how only people older than 21 should have access to firearms. So what do they think this 16-year-old should have done?

“Yeah, my son defended himself. It could have been the other way around. It could have been my son, I’m the one I’m picking up and having to bury, but it wasn’t.”

The uncle apparently had a history of threatening the family, but even though his threats often included the use of things like machetes, he wasn’t in jail (or the loony bin).

The kid is understandably traumatized. And the case will be presented to a grand jury, but to my untrained, non-lawyer sensibilities, it certainly appears to be justifiable self-defense. Which is a human-right.


He Apparently Didn’t Like the “Ex” Part of Ex-boyfriend

The “How dare you live without me” attitude rarely ends well for anyone. Mississippi man allegedly killed while breaking into ex’s home, family says otherwise | FOX13

He broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment through a window. He was shot and killed by her current boyfriend.

Predictably, the family of the dead-guy doesn’t believe any of it. He was a nice guy. He couldn’t fit through a window. Whatever.

Davis’s family said he wasn’t the type to start an altercation. Family members are now demanding to know how many times Davis was shot.

Police told the family Davis entered the apartment through a window, but family members believe he’s a too big to climb through a window.

No charges against the shooter, because self-defense is a human-right.

He Was Sentenced to 20 Years For Murder. Now Arrested for Sexual Assault.

The 20 years for murder was part of plea deal. He only got 20 years for murder; now he’s accused of beating, raping Gautier woman | gulflive.com

He would have completed his sentence in April of next year. Sometime in the past 2 years he was paroled.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call in the early morning Tuesday reporting a woman screaming in the woods. Deputies responding to the call located the victim, who said she had been physically and sexually assaulted at gunpoint. She was treated and released at Ocean Springs Hospital.

A few hours later, Neal turned himself in to Mississippi Probation and Parole.

I doubt the authorities will bother the federal .gov about the gun charges. A felon in possession of a gun, parolee committing a violent crime could be a lot of federal years. Was all this the fault of the 20-year-sentence for murder?

The Criminal Justice System – Just another .gov bureaucracy

This would be funny if it didn’t involve putting a dangerous criminal back on the street. Metro Jackson crime spree suspect released from Hinds County custody

A paperwork mix-up? At this point they can only say it is a mystery.

He was in a city jail for armed assault. He was released to a county for a court appearance. He was supposed to be returned to the jail, after that court date. He was set free.

The sheriff and DA in the fumble-fingers county are not commenting. What could they say really?

“It’s the strangest thing I’ve seen in 30 years of law enforcement. He had a $1 million bond,” [Ridgeland Police Department Chief John] Neal said.

Another Breakdown of the Victim-selection Process

They thought it would be a good idea to rob a store. Clerk shoots armed robber, police say

A couple walks into a store. They show a gun and demand cash.

Police said the clerk grabbed a gun and and fired at the two. The man and woman ran out of the store. Police said the man was found suffering from a gunshot wound and was taken to the hospital.

The guy who got shot is in a local hospital in critical condition. I guess his partner abandoned him, because there is no mention of her.

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

They Cooperated, Gave Them Everything They Asked For. Then One Was Shot and Killed.

Violent criminals don’t stop being violent criminals based on anything you can do or not do. Indian American Sikh store clerk shot dead during armed robbery in Mississippi

In case of Sandeep Singh, three masked attackers took money and cell phone from him and two other friends who were standing outside their house. As the assaulters ran from the scene one of them fired a bullet that hit Singh on his stomach, knocking him unconscious.

Singh died at University of Mississippi Medical Center, on Monday.

Cooperation with criminals is a strategy for dealing with violent crime. Depending on the circumstances it may be all you can do. But it is a strategy, not a guarantee.

Of course being prepared (i.e. armed) to defend yourself is also a strategy. It is also not a guarantee. Personally I think it is a better strategy than cooperation; even if you have to begin an encounter with cooperation you have other options.

The violent criminals are still out there, and it looks like they might be responsible for a series of crimes.

“It appears they are intent, don’t mind hurting people, don’t mind shooting people,” said Jackson Police Chief Lee Vance to MS News Now. “So we got to put a stop to this right away. We very rarely see a group of crimes like this committed in such a short period of time.”

How Would You Deal With an Uninvited Guest at 2:30 in the Morning?

It sounds like this might actually be a domestic violence incident. Hernando homeowner shoots suspected intruder, deputies say | WREG.com

Police say the woman and the man she shot are “acquainted.”

According to the Desoto County Sheriff’s Department, the woman was home when the man tried to make his way inside around 2:30 a.m.

She grabbed a gun and opened fire, shooting through the door and hitting the suspect.

The reporter notes that the police may be making the mistake I always blame on the press.

A news release referred to the man as a “victim.”

If you break into my home, and I shoot you in self-defense, then you are no victim. Good job to the reporter for catching this.
