The “How Dare You Live Without Me” Attitude Strikes Again

It didn’t work out well for him. PD: Woman shoots ex-boyfriend trying to break into her East Price Hill home.

Don’t expect the national media to be trumpeting this, because they don’t like it when domestic-violence is handled by the intended victim.

The man broke into the woman’s home through a front window, and she shot him in the abdomen, Sgt. Andrew Fusselman said.

So what does the Gun-hating Left think should happen? She should be reduced to fighting him hand-to-hand?

The guy who didn’t understand the “ex” part of ex-boyfriend was taken to a local hospital and is expected to be OK.

The investigation is continuing. Self-defense is a human-right.

More on the incident. Police: Mother of 5 with license to carry shoots ex-boyfriend as he breaks into her house.

I’m beginning to have some real respect for Joe Deters, the Prosecuting Attorney for Hamilton County (where Cincinnati is located).

“Thank goodness she had a Concealed Carry Permit and was able to defend herself and her five children,” said Prosecutor Joe Deters in a news release. “It is hard to imagine what might have happened to her or her children if she had not been able to protect herself and her family.”

She also had an order of protection out against the guy she shot. (A piece of paper issued by the courts is still a piece of paper.)

Self-defense Is Legal in Ohio

JusticeAnd concealed carry works. Gunman cleared in fatal Canton gas station shooting.

Attorney Jeff Jakmides said his client acted in self-defense when he was attacked and punched by a man in the BP parking lot on Tuscarawas Street W near the Interstate 77 exit ramp. The man killed also wielded a knife that was later found at the scene by police, Jakmides said.

“He was in lawful possession of his sidearm,” Jakmides said of his client. “He has a concealed carry permit.”

Jay H. Schweitzer, 31, of Canton, died following the shooting on Oct. 6.

There were recently changes in Ohio law to dial back the often over-zealous prosecutors – who hate self-defense.

He Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

I’m guessing this is not how he thought his day would turn out, and now it keeps getting worse. Robbery suspect shot by Cleveland cellphone store employee charged in separate hold-up.

He tried to rob a Metro by T-Mobile store. The clerk shot him. He is charged in a robbery of a different Metro by T-Mobile store in April.

Jones has been in custody since an employee shot him in the stomach, left leg and right hand April 23 at another of the chain’s locations on Harvard Avenue at East 93rd Street, according to police reports and court records.

The other robbery was on April 19th.

So did the law-abiding gun-owner stop a crime spree? Who knows? But I know that self-defense is a human-right.

Hacked Is Probably an Overstatement

My guess is that the teacher in question had a weak password. (Pet name, kid’s name, spouse’s name, etc.) 13-Year-Old Allegedly Hacked Teacher Account to Create Student ‘Hit List’.

A 13-year-old is currently under investigation after he allegedly used a teacher’s credentials to hack into his school district’s computing system to steal fellow students’ personal information and create a “hit list.”

It dosen’t say, and the original article at the Columbus, Ohio ABC affiliate also doesn’t say, how he got that teachers login and password. If I had to guess (which I do) I would say the logins are known (you have to be able to send emails to the teacher after all), and her password was easy to guess based on information known about her by her class. Which is why you should never use your pet’s name as a PW.

The good news is they stopped this kid before he shot up the kids who were bullying him. (Don’t we have anti-bullying programs today?) The bad news is I doubt anyone will improve the level of their security.

If you break into homes…

You will eventually find an armed homeowner. No one will be surprised at the result. One shot in home invasion.

After the initial investigation, it appears the armed homeowner confronted two adult male suspects at his residence. As a result of this confrontation, one male suspect shot. He was transported from the scene to Genesis Hospital with a single gunshot wound.

2 people are in custody, a man and a woman. It doesn’t say if the other “male suspect” is still in the hospital, or if police are still searching for someone. My instinct is to say, “Good Guys 3…” But I really can’t back that up with the story linked above.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Self-defense Is Legal in Cincinnati

JusticeOhio? Not surprising. Hamilton County? It is a bit surprising that the DA acted so quickly. Prosecutor: Woman who shot, killed robber was ‘clearly justified’.

The shooting took place on January 23rd – less than a month ago.

No charges will be filed against a West Price Hill store owner who shot and killed an alleged robber, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said Thursday, adding that she was “clearly justified.”

West Price Hill is a neighborhood in Cincinnati.

Actually it isn’t really that surprising that the DA responded the way he did. While Cincinnati is as Leftist as any city in America – they really hate the 2nd Amendment! – Hamilton County has mostly been more conservative. (The SPEED with which he responded is a bit of a surprise.)

“As long as I’ve been prosecutor, I’ve said this repeatedly: If you go into a store with a gun and rob it, you forfeit the right not be shot,” Deters said.

The store owner is still understandably rattled by the incident, but she had a weapon pointed at her, and she defended herself. Self-defense is a Human-right, and it appears that in Hamilton County and Cincinnati it is also your legal right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0. (Hat tip to MaddMedic.)

The Failure of House Arrest and Electronic Monitoring

Bureaucrats never admit they’re wrong. County prosecutor: How many ‘have to die’ to end house arrest in violent crimes?.

Court officials, judges say ankle monitors are safe, less expensive.

Cheaper? Sure. Safe? Not so much.

Travion Montgomery cut off his ankle bracelet while under house arrest on a robbery charge. Montgomery had prior convictions for aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and kidnappng.

The court monitors issued a warrant, but didn’t notify law-enforcement. And so when he was picked up by police he was released. Then another warrant with the wrong SSN. And then…

Montgomery was arrested Sept. 10 after allegedly choking a woman and leaving her on life support. He is now in jail on a $500,000 bond.

Yeah, that sounds like a safe system to me. At least I’m sure it’s cheap.
