This is Texas we’re talking about, so the result is not surprising. Fort Worth man shoots half-naked home intruder, police say.
“The homeowner shot the suspect that was attempting to enter the home in the chest,” police spokesman Brad Perez said.
“The suspect is expected to survive his injuries. I was advised that he was wearing a shirt only.”
He was shot once in his left chest, and is in intensive care at a local hospital. (He is lucky to be alive.) He will be booked once he recovers from his injury.
Self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
“Just give them what they want, and they will leave you alone,” is the mantra of those who hate the very idea of self-defense. Too bad it isn’t the guarantee it is held up as. 4 men charged in murder of store clerk in SW Houston.
Violent criminals remain violent criminals without regard to anything you are or are not doing.
Investigators say Qureshi was working at Sunny’s Food Store in the 9000 block of South Dairy Ashford when the suspects entered the store and demanded money.
He complied, but he was still murdered. Officers had a break in the case when police say they noticed a vehicle blocking a lane of traffic.
He gave them what the asked for, and they killed him anyway.
Having a gun for self-defense may not have saved this man. There are no guarantees in this life save for death, and next winter’s snow. But relying on the strategy of “Just do what you’re told to do” is also not a guarantee. You should consider what is the strategy for dealing with a violent encounter you prefer.
But then I always suspected that it was. (Then again, this is the county that includes Austin.) Travis Co. DA says deadly Elgin shooting was in self-defense.
[Travis County DA Margaret] Moore said in a statement released Wednesday that 48-year-old Thomas Hardin and a relative of his had gone to a neighbor’s home after a prior disagreement earlier that evening. Hardin was armed with a handgun, and the two neighbors exchanged gunfire.
It isn’t clear really what the disagreement was about, but it probably wasn’t worth losing his life over.
But the DA declined to file charges, because self-defense is your legal right in Texas. And she made that determination in pretty good time, considering Austin.
That was when Stephen Willeford decided to be a hero. The Ultimate Good Guy With a Gun.
This is a nicely written review of the day, and the effect it has had on Mr. Willeford’s life in the past year. It is worth your time.
And for those who wonder why would you ever need a large-capacity magazine…
As they closed in on the SUV, it swerved back and forth across both lanes and then, abruptly, careered off the road into a ditch. Langendorff pulled up about five yards behind the Explorer. Willeford clutched the AR-15 in his right hand— he only had two rounds remaining, not enough to survive another shootout—and reached down to open the door with his left. Just as he was stepping out, the Explorer peeled off, plowing through a street sign on its way back to the road. Willeford closed his door. Langendorff stomped on the gas.
Johnnie Langendorff, a guy Willeford had never met, was driving by when all this started, he didn’t hesitate when Willeford said, “That guy just shot up the church.” Langendorff unlocked the door to his truck.
I guessing the Left doesn’t like that. Teenager found guilty of killing homeowner in home invasion.
When he was 18, he broke into a home at 2 AM armed with a firearm. He used that firearm. Now he will face the consequences of his actions.
The prosecutor says he had the “intent” to use the weapon. The defense attorney says he didn’t intend to kill anyone. (What exactly does he think happens when you shoot someone?)
As she asked for a guilty verdict, prosecutor Kristina Escalona said, “If we allow going to sleep in our own home to become a risk, what do we have left?”
You must be held accountable for the completely foreseeable consequences of your actions, or society is doomed.
What were they thinking? This is Texas, after all. Homeowner shot alleged burglars in southeast Bexar County.
If you break into homes you will eventually find an armed homeowner. If you are breaking into homes in Texas, your odds probably increase.
SAPD was initially called for shots fired and a burglary in progress at a home near Stuart Road. Two suspects allegedly fled the scene.
A few hours later around 3:45 am, a man and woman showed up to the Mission Trails Baptist Hospital with gunshot wounds. Hospital workers noticed bullet holes in their car and notified police.
One was seriously injured and is in hospital. The other is in police custody.
Self-defense is a human-right.
For 16 years. Texas couple indicted on charges they enslaved Guinean girl. So they haven’t been found guilty yet.
Mohamed Toure (too-RAY’) and his wife, Denise Cros-Toure, were named in an indictment returned Wednesday. The Fort Worth residents, both 57, are charged with forced labor, alien harboring and conspiracy. Mohamed Toure also is charged with making false statements to federal agents.
Mohamed Toure is the son of a former West African leader.
Via Pamela Geller’s Geller Report, who had this to add. (About the likelihood that any of this will receive media coverage.)
This speaks to the power of disinformation and propaganda, and the effects of the brutal enforcement of the blasphemy laws under Islam (do not criticize Islam, under penalty of death). The truth remains hidden.
