Krystin Waller – Alligator Hunter

Mike Giles has a nice review of an alligator hunter. Young woman lands a couple of monster gators

Well, OK, he is old school and seems to have trouble picturing outdoors-women. But that said, once you get about ⅓ into the article he gets down to the details of the hunt. She “threw back” the 9 foot 7 inch gator, to go after the “really big one.”

The monster gator fought wildly but he was no match for this determined gator hunter. As the gator finally wore down, Waller slowly pulled him near the boat and took aim.

Boom roared the .410 Rossi Tuffy and the gator had met his match. Waller is a Prostaff member for Gatortaker hooks and she knows a few things about finding, catching and shooting gators.

Law says you have to hook and bring them close to the boat, before you can dispatch them.

30 Minute Delay After 911 Call

What happens when you underpay your 911 call-center staff, and have the resulting turnover”? Resolve delays with dispatch system quickly.

When you call 911 in an emergency, you expect that help is coming with lights and sirens as fast as possible. If there is a 30 minute wait inserted into the system, you might want to plan something aside from just calling 911. Because after that 30 minutes, it still took some minutes for cops to drive to the location in question.

the dispatcher took 30 minutes to contact Natchez Police about the suspected abduction case.

The 911 management?

Emergency management officials said the dispatcher was new to the job and made an error.

Yeah, that makes it all OK. At least in this case, it turned out to be a false alarm. (Due to a language barrier.) What about next time?

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

How would you respond to a person breaking into your home at 11 PM? Homeowner fights back, shoots Mississippi burglar multiple times.

Police say the thief was shot multiple times after he broke into the residence.

The cops caught up with him nearby the residence, and took him to a local hospital where he was listing in critical condition.

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

Teen Tragically Shot – OR – Law Abiding Homeowner Defending Himself

I guess that depends on much you hate guns and law-abiding gun owners. Police: 14-year-old killed in Southaven was shot by homeowner during home invasion.

According to police, 14-year-old Christopher Cooper, Joshua Fletcher, Justin Williams and Ashley Lutts were involved in a home invasion in the 800 block of Tuscany in Southaven on Wednesday, July 10.

The homeowner pulled a gun and opened fire on the suspects, striking Cooper.

The 14-year-old was found dead a short distance from the home. Cooper and Fletcher were arrested and charged with home invasion. Lutts was arrested and charged with conspiracy.

I’m not sure at this point if the gun-hating-Left will make a lot noise about this case, because it won’t help them with the details. But you can be damn sure that this case will show up in their stats about how guns are a plague upon the youth of this country. And no word on what a 14-year-old kid was doing with a 25-year-old, a 30-year-old and a 19-year-old.

In the meantime, self-defense is a human-right.

People Are Surprised That Actions Have Consequences

In this case the action is the entire #MeToo movement, and rational response to it. Mississippi Gubernatorial Candidate’s Condition For Female Reporter: Bring A Man.

Robert Foster doesn’t want to deal with a bunch of #MeToo issues, and so is protecting himself. I for one, don’t blame him. This guy’s policy predates #MeToo, but makes sense given the type of accusations that are likely to be thrown around.

In the days since, Foster has continued to “stick to his guns,” saying “perception is reality in this world.” He maintains that he’s been dogged by professional political trackers for the past seven months who are itching to get something incriminating on him. “They’re looking to try and manipulate anything they can to try to hurt my character and hurt my chances in this campaign,” he said.

And so he is taking steps to ensure he can’t be hurt for something he didn’t do.

As has been noted elsewhere, this whole “guilty with no way to prove you’re innocence” movement has set women back decades. “Perception is reality.” Feelings are more important than facts. And due process is a 19th Century idea.

Flooding in Louisiana, Mississippi and Environs

The intermediate Tropical Storm Barry Public Advisory, from 1:00 PM Central Daylight Time. (6:00 PM UTC)

10 inches is a lot of rain in 24 or 48 hours, some places will get twice that, possibly more.

RAINFALL: Barry is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 20 inches over south-central and southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi, with isolated maximum amounts of 25 inches. Across the remainder of the Lower Mississippi Valley and western portions of the Tennessee Valley, total rain accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are expected, with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches. This rainfall is expected to lead to dangerous, life threatening flooding.

And even as the rain moves north, which it is doing very slowly at this point, all that water will flow back down the Mississippi River.

How Do They Determine If Someone Is Granted Parole?

Another failure of the victim-selection process, and a failure of the parole-granting process as well. Center Hill intruder shot, hospitalized. I don’t think they got it right in this case.

So the typical, bad-guy breaks into home, and finds armed homeowner. Bad-guy gets shot. In this instance there is a twist.

Bias is currently on parole supervision through the Mississippi Department of Corrections following his release in Texas for a burglary conviction. He was wearing an ankle monitor at the time of the incident.

The technological wonder that is the ankle-monitor. Where would we be without it?

The bad guy is in the hospital with gunshot wounds.

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

Self-defense Is Legal in Mississippi

I suspected that it was. LPD: Sunday shooting appears to be in self-defense.

After interviewing witnesses and examining evidence, Cox said detectives determined the shooting was in self-defense.

The shooter was released after police discussed the incident with the district attorney’s office. Cox said the case will be sent to a grand jury for review.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Just Because You Know Someone, Doesn’t Mean They Can’t Be a Threat

In fact you’re more likely to run into problems with someone you know. DeSoto County man shoots neighbor in self-defense, sheriff’s office says.

Investigators said James Leon Newman, 69, shot his neighbor Lucian “Butch” Angelo, 78, around 3 p.m. after an argument turned into a physical altercation at a home in the 8700 block of Tulane Road.

The guy who got shot died at a local hospital. Police and the DA believe it was self-defense, but the case will be sent to a grand jury to decide if charges will be filed.

Self-defense is a human-right.

A Failure of the Victim-selection Process

What would you do if someone kicked in your door at 1 o’clock in the morning? Sheriff: Man dead in Monroe County home invasion.

He broke in and woke the residents. The homeowner confronted him in the kitchen armed with a shotgun, and told him to lay down on the floor.

Culver complied. The homeowner told Culver that law enforcement was responding, [Sheriff Cecil] Cantrell said.

He says Culver then got off the ground and charged at the homeowner. He says the homeowner shot Culver with the gun.

The guy-who-got-shot was dead when officers arrived. (A shotgun at close range will do that.)

Self-defense is a human-right.
