Not all crime stories have happy endings. They wouldn’t be crime stories if they were all happy. But not all of them have sad endings either. Today we get a happy ending to contrast with your daily dose of felons behaving badly.
Two robbery victims, one shot in the hand during a struggle, turned the tables on an armed robber early Sunday, tied him up with shoelaces and held him until police arrived, Durham police said.
A struggle turned into a shooting, but one of the intended victims came up with the gun and used it as a blunt object. Cops arrived to find the perp tied up with shoelaces.
It’s nice that the tables got rotated, but it would be nicer still if the criminal had been in some secure facility serving time for his previous crimes instead.
Hopefully the nurse is giving the victim all the Happy Endings he wants. When I lived in northern Maryland, I always ordered my Happy Endings with vanilla and caramel.
That’s a strange thing to focus on in a murder case
Alcohol Played A Factor In Man’s Shooting Death
So what happened?
Police in Alexander County were investigating a homicide after they said a fight between two friends ended with one man being shot in the head Thursday night.
So two guys got drunk, got into a fight, and one shot the other. Another case of guns turning a simple fight into a murder?
Or another case of two ne’er-do-wells resorting to violence because they can’t be bothered to absorb the normal socially acceptable ways of dealing with anger?
Another on a long list of things my father said when I was a child that turned out to be useful wisdom in adulthood was “Birds of a feather flock together.” Look at your friends. What they are is what you are. Look at your girlfriend/boyfriend’s friends. Whatever they are, s/he is. Make sure to take a good look before you marry. If you find that you don’t like what you see in your friends or your significant other’s friends, now is the time to walk away.
The Raleigh PD have arrested their suspect
Police charged a 25-year-old woman with assault in the stabbing of a man who was found seriously injured at Flashbacks bar on Capital Boulevard early Monday.
Who stabs a guy at a bar?
He was an absconder from parole when the stabbing happened. He’s not merely a felon, but one who can’t abide by the terms of his probation.
It’s also interesting that he was convicted of Assault with a Deadly Weapon Inflicting Serious Injury, but he got probation and not jail time. Would you or I be treated similarly?
This is a sick individual.
Police have charged a 51-year-old man with setting a fire at a Beverly Drive home that killed a dog Friday night while his sister and her two daughters were away.
Who solves his problems by torching a house and burning up a dog in the process?
Someone who has already demonstrated his contempt for ordinary social behavior standards.
