Cooperation With Violent Criminals Doesn’t Guarantee Safety

The gun-hating-Left is always going on about how if you just cooperate, the bad guys will leave you alone. (They never, ever want to talk about rape when that subject comes up.) Do you recognize the robber who pistol-whipped and shot a Midland-area clerk?.

Held at gunpoint, the clerk opened the cash register and the robber took fistfuls of cash.

He then shot the clerk, grabbed more money and ran.

He cooperated and he got shot anyway.

Now maybe there was nothing he could have done. Being armed in your own self-defense is also not a guarantee. “There are no guarantees in this life save for death and next winter’s snow.” But meekly cooperating didn’t do much.

Violent criminals do not stop being violent criminals because of anything you are or are not doing.

Deputy Justin DeRosier

Southwest Washington is mourning the loss of a Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Deputy who was shot and killed in the line of duty overnight Saturday (April 13).

Prosecutors Hate Self-defense

JusticeThis attorney held a guy in jail for 14 months for defending himself, and then dropped the charges. Murder Charges Dropped in Longbranch Shootings.

He was attacked by the sister and brother-in-law of his girlfriend. She had a sledgehammer, he was shooting his truck. He shot both of them.

Given the darkness, the speed of events, Beth’s aggressive focus on Mason, and the fact that Mason was in the car when she was disarmed while Lukas was firing his weapon, the prosecutor’s office concluded it could not show beyond a reasonable doubt that Mason was unaware Beth was unarmed at the time he shot her.

There are more details than I can relate here. Click thru if you’re interested.

As someone keeps reminding me, the process is the punishment. This guy was guilty of no crime. Yet after 14 months, he probably lost his job, his home, his friends,…

Self-defense is a human-right, even if the lawyers hate that.

Don’t Bring a Fake Gun to a (Real) Gunfight

Things won’t turn out well for you. Man shot after pulling fake gun on armed seller during iPhone buy.

You know, if you are going to sell your used smartphone, try Gazelle, or at least meet in from of the police station. It’s less likely bad people will try bad things if cops are around.

So, the two men agreed to go to the BECU bank at 112th St. SW and Evergreen Way. There, the man who was supposed to buy the phone attempted to pull a fake gun on the seller, but that seller drew a real gun and shot the intended buyer several times, according to Everett Police.

The would-be bad-guy was rushed to a local hospital.

“Right now it appears, but we don’t know yet,” Lt. Ryan Dalberg said. “We have a lot of work to do. And the investigation team is still working.”

He Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Even the media agrees… Sequim burglary suspect held at gunpoint by homeowner until deputies arrive.

A burglar picked the wrong house to try and steal from out on the Olympic Peninsula Tuesday.

Burglar alarms summoned both the police and the owner of the property. The property owner got there first and was armed. He held the miscreant until cops arrived at gunpoint. The cops took him to the county lockup.

Don’t Bring a Baseball Bat to a Gunfight

Two step-brothers thought they would take baseball bats and have their way at a house. They thought wrong. He used a bat to attack a Lake Tapps homeowner who uses a wheelchair, charges say.

When they first showed up they used the bats to attack some people outside. Then they went into the house and attacked the homeowner – who is confined to a wheelchair. They hit him in the head.

Then Bouton and his stepbrother proceeded upstairs, where a man and his pregnant girlfriend were living.

The man shot at them, aiming at their feet. When the stepbrother continued toward him, the man shot him in the chest.

The guy who got shot in the chest died. The other guy was shot in the foot, and police caught up with him at a hospital.

He had some reason why they went to the house. I wonder if he thinks it was worth it.

“The state reserves the right to add an aggravator due to the vulnerability of the homeowner,” the charging papers say.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Self-defense Is Legal in Washington State

JusticeWhy do I get the feeling that the District Attorney is disappointed? But to be fair, it only took him two days to make that determination. Prosecutor declines to file charges against grandmother accused of shooting granddaughter.

“After a full and fair consideration of all the facts and analysis of their relationship, as well as the familial history, it is my belief that the state of Washington would not be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the absence of self-defense undertaken by Wanda Roberts,” Brusic wrote in a letter to the Yakima police Wednesday.

Family members and acquaintances can be threats. The grandmother had tried to get a restraining order against the granddaughter at one point. (It doesn’t say why that didn’t happen.)

Self-defense is a human-right.
