Yet Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

And the determination of self-defense was made fairly quickly. Police: No charges filed in fatal Walhalla shooting, incident ruled self defense.

Cops found a man shot in a home.

Police said a full investigation was launched and investigators and the solicitor’s office determined the shooting was a case of self-defense.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Another Breakdown of the Victim-selection Process

South Carolina has been fairly active on the self-defense front lately. Fatal North Charleston shooting may have been self-defense, officials say.

“Investigators believe the shooting may have been a result of the deceased victim attempting to rob a male subject and gunfire being exchanged between the two,” Pryor [a North Charleston police spokesman] said.

The investigation is ongoing, but self-defense is a human-right.

They Suffered a Breakdown of the Victim-selection Process

If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed homeowner. Police: Hampton homeowner shoots 2 intruders, killing one.

According to the Hampton Police Department, two men charged into one of the houses on Locust Street. The homeowner, who was inside at the time of the attack, was armed, and used his gun to fight back his attackers.

Police said one of the suspects died at the scene, right outside the house, after allegedly being shot by the homeowner.

The 2nd guy was found at a McDonald’s and airlifted to a trauma center. Cops are looking at whether or not a 3rd party helped the one guy get to that McDonald’s.

There are a few of the usual “That stuff doesn’t happen here” comments, but not enough to actually rise to a “Neighbors are Shocked” level.

So how would you respond to someone trying to break into your home at 9:30 PM?

Self-defense is a human-right.

Drugs Can Be Hazardous To Your Health

The Gun-hating Left will probably call this a “teen tragically shot,” even though it appears to be justified. A teen ate mushrooms and went ‘wild’ before being shot by friend’s father, witnesses say.

A bunch of high-school kids hanging out on a Friday night, when one of them takes some kind of mushrooms. It’s possible that the mushrooms were laced with something else.

One of his friends described Tyson acting like a “wild animal.” The teens told investigators that Tyson was storming through the house and yard, throwing and breaking things, punching people and bleeding after bashing glass.

The 911 call is available. It is 10 minutes long. I haven’t listened to it.

While this is certainly a tragedy, self-defense is a human-right.

Crime Doesn’t Pay

How do you get that message across? Conway teen’s robbery attempt netted him $20, 6 gunshots and a prison sentence.

He would have made more in 1 shift working at a fast food restaurant, and it wouldn’t have cost him any prison time.

Seth Oskin, the assistant solicitor who prosecuted the case, said: ““(Collier) robbed the victim of $20 at gunpoint, demanded more money and when he did not receive it, fired the gun into the victim’s vehicle door. The victim returned gunfire and shot Collier six times.”

He was sentenced to 11 years in prison, of which he must serve 85% before he will be eligible for parole.

Good Guys 3, Bad Guys 0

The suffered a complete breakdown of the victim-selection processSuspect shot by Campobello homeowner, 2 others detained after break-in.

According to Campobello Police Chief Chad McNeill, a homeowner came home to find three suspects in the back of the residence.

McNeill said shots were fired and the homeowner shot one of the suspects.

One bad guy was taken to surgery, the other 2 were arrested by police at the scene.

Self-defense is a human-right.

No, You Can’t Shoot Someone Running Away

JusticeNot even if you are a cop. SC Officer Who Killed Black Motorist Loses Appeal.

There was a traffic stop. The guy and the officer had “mutual combat” and then the guy ran. While he was running away, the officer shot him five times. (Do I need to state that the guy running away was black?)

In the state trial he testified that he was not caught up in the heat of the moment, but that he was calmly going about his duties. He tried to change that for the purposes of the appeal – as if the appellate court didn’t have access to all the trial transcripts. (Should I file this under “stupid criminals” or finally create that “Cops Behaving Stupidly” category?)

And then there’s this.

According to court records, Slager made false statements during the investigation that were clearly contradicted by a video of the incident that a passerby captured with a cellphone.

Cops have STILL (this happened in 2015) not figured out that cameras are everywhere. At this point, I’m not sure they ever will.
