He Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

He thought it would be a good idea to rob someone at an ATM. Police: Attempted robber shot multiple times by would-be victim in self defense at Bell Road ATM.

[The would-be-robber] allegedly approached a man making a deposit at that location with a gun drawn. The man told police he first noticed the alleged robber, whom he does not know personally, when the teen was sitting across the parking lot wearing a red hoodie with the hood pulled tightly across his face.

The guy making the deposit shot the other guy multiple times in self-defense. The guy who got shot is in a local hospital. It sounds like he’ll be charged with aggravated robbery when he gets released by the doctors.

No charges against the other guy, because self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.

SWAT Raid On The Wrong Address

Cleveland, Tennessee. SWAT raid on wrong house leads to lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Chattanooga, the incident occurred at approximately 6 a.m., on May 22, 2018. The Bradley County SWAT team assembled to serve felony arrest warrants on purported gang members who were wanted for first-degree murder and multiple drug offenses.

However, the SWAT team burst through the door of the neighboring house, where a family was sleeping.

You would think that this is a terribly rare occurrence, but you would be wrong.

A nearly identical incident happened in Boston. This story is from March. Boston SWAT Team Raided Wrong Home: ACLU.

So you can’t say, “Well, Cleveland, Tennessee is a small town, this would NEVER happen in a metropolis.”

To say this amounts to a truly epic fail, totally misses the point. They cause damage with flash-bangs, they threaten people at gunpoint, they destroy property. All because they can’t read a map, or whatever. These guys shouldn’t be dogcatchers, let alone SWAT team members.

Peak Tennessee Gives Peak Florida Some Competition

Meth and alligators don’t mix. Tennessee police warn not to flush drugs down toilet for fear of creating ‘meth-gators’.

Word from The Authorities is “Don’t flush your meth down the toilet.”

But in addition to birds, officials said if the water headed far enough downstream… “it would create meth-gators in Shoal Creek and the Tennessee River down in North Alabama.”

Hat tip to Wirecutter, who says there’s Nothing worse than a tweeker gator.

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed homeowner. Man trying to rob Madison home held at gunpoint by homeowner.

First he knocked softly. Then loudly. Kids told someone in the home, who told the homeowner. By the time the guy had progressed to trying to kick in the door, the homeowner had armed himself.

According to police, Marquiese Kemp tried to break into the home Wednesday night just before midnight. By the time police arrived, he was being held at gunpoint.

I’m guessing that being arrested on an aggravated burglary charge wasn’t in his plans for the evening.

Also being blind drunk can be hazardous to your health. Homeowner shoots intruder in the leg after break-in at Mosaic Apartments.

So what would you do if someone broke the sliding-glass door into your home in the middle of the night, with your wife and her mother in the home with you?

The homeowner said he heard a banging sound, so he grabbed a gun and took the women into the back of the apartment. While on the phone with 911, the homeowner warned the suspect not to move. The suspect did not listen and the homeowner shot the suspect in the leg.

That guys is lucky he didn’t get shot in the heart or the head.

He then got his family out of there, but apparently came back when he saw the police. Being drunk? The homeowner thought that the guy who got shot was drunk.

No word on whether or not the intruder will face charges or what charges he might face.

Metro Police said the homeowner will not face charges.

Because self-defense is a human-right, and in Tennessee it also your legal right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0. (Or should that be incredibly stupid guys 0?)

But then I thought it was. Man not facing charges in fatal downtown shooting.

Two people got into an altercation. He tried to separate them.

Esaw’s friend got into an argument with Coleman’s brother, and Esaw tried to separate the two, at which time Coleman allegedly punched Esaw, knocking him to the ground.

Esaw said that Coleman stood over him and allegedly attempted to assault him again, at which time Esaw drew a pistol and shot Coleman.

The guy who got shot died at a local hospital from a single gunshot wound to the torso.

The guy who did the shooting was picked up and questioned by police, but released when the cops and the DA determined that his statement matched those of witnesses in the area. The investigation continues, but he is facing no charges.

Self-defense is a human-right.

JusticeBut then I thought it was. No charges will be filed against Ardis Lane shooter who killed two in self-defense.

Two miscreants break into a home and find an armed homeowner. One dies at the scene, the other dies at a local hospital. Cops and the DA believe it is self-defense.

“Someone unlawfully enters one of those places like breaks in, or something when they’re not supposed to be there,” said [Attorney] John Cavett. “Then, the person is entitled to use force to protect themselves, family members, or people that are there as guests.”

Cavett says self-defense covers someone’s home, vehicle, or business. If the owner feels threatened, then action can be taken.

Self-defense is a human-right.
