Suicide by dump truck

Selfish to the end.

The man who was charged with killing his ex-girlfriend in west Mecklenburg County earlier this week died in a hospital Thursday night from injuries sustained in a car crash.

The report indicated he intentionally drove into the opposite lane of traffic on Gold Hill Road and Highway 21 in York County, hitting a dump truck head-on.

And who was this wonderful example of domestic bliss?

Suspect

Good riddance. But did he have to involve some poor innocent truck driver?

Check out the video on this story. They interview a father and son who were there when the crash happened and tried to save the suspect. Dad’s heroism is in no way diminished by the fact that the suspect didn’t deserve the assistance.

That was a poor choice

It’s generally not a good idea to point a gun at police. Especially after you’ve already shot at them earlier in the day.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police shot and killed a man late Wednesday night who they say shot at officers earlier this week in west Charlotte.

So, was it some crazed Concealed Handgun Permit holder?

Suspect

Or was it another career criminal who should have been in prison for his last crime but was given a suspended sentence and probation instead.

It’s tough being a “youth”

It’s hard out there for “youths.” You face puberty, a lack of social freedoms, and occasionally you get shot in the back.

A 17-year-old Garner youth was shot in the back outside a house late Tuesday, but his injury was not believed to be life-threatening, police said.

What sort of 17 year old was out on a Tuesday evening at 11:30 PM in a city he didn’t live in?

Victim

Undoubtedly he was “minding his own business.”

Didn’t take long to catch him

The time from crime…

Police report that a man robbed the SunTrust Bank branch at 1516 N. Gregson St. on Friday afternoon.

To arrest was only a few hours.

Suspect

Sounds like the cops were pretty familiar with him.

Robbing the cabbie

There’s something worse about this than merely being a robber.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police have arrested two people in connection with the armed robbery of a cab driver early Tuesday morning.

Robbing cab drivers, pizza delivery people, real estate agents, and others who you call to remote locations seems worse to me than robbing random people on the street. There’s an element of luring them into an ambush that really bothers me.

Suspect 2

No surprise that the shooter is a felon.

Robbing the VA

At least it wasn’t actual VA employees this time.

A Cherryville woman has been charged with defrauding the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs of more than $22,000.

Police say (Suspect) is the former caretaker of a VA beneficiary.

From May 2012 to December 2013, officials say (Suspect) continued to collect and withdraw benefit deposits with a fraudulently obtained debit card after the beneficiary had died.

And who would do something like this?

Suspect

Someone who already doesn’t want to follow the law.

More “Felon Seeking Bullets”

A shooting? In Durham?

A shootout in Durham left at least one man wounded and damaged five vehicles and three occupied businesses.

Say it isn’t so!

Victim

Do people pay extra for bullets that only hit criminals?

Beating the baby

How hard do you have to beat a 10 month old to break multiple bones?

Winston-Salem police have charged the parents of a 10-month-old with child abuse after a hospital examination showed the child had suffered multiple bone fractures and bruising.

The suspected abuse was reported last October, but they are only now wrapping up their investigation.

Suspect 1

People say that victims generally know their attacker. What they don’t tell you is that even felons have friends and family.

He isn’t going to learn

Here’s another poster boy for Recidivists Anonymous

(Suspect), 20, faces charges of extortion, felony larceny and conspiracy in a May 18 theft of cash from a Walmart store after, police charged, he threatened to kill a clerk if she did not leave her cash register open for (Suspect) and an accomplice.

He was already on parole, so they’ve tossed him back in prison

Suspect

Maybe they could leave him there.

Three from Garner rob drug store

They must be such good friends to do things like this together.

Police this week charged three men from Garner in a Jan. 14 holdup at a Walgreens drug store, adding that incident to a list of armed robbery and other charges against the three.

Their moms must be so proud.

Suspect 1

Suspect 2

Suspect 3

But it’s you and me that the gun haters want to persecute.
