Non-random shooting

What sort of lives lead to this?

Police arrested a suspect in a Friday-night shooting in North Raleigh that left one man dead.

A killer in jail awaiting trial and his victim dead in the street with a bullet in his head.



Oh, that sort of life.

USS Mahan shooter was convicted felon in NC

He wasn’t eligible to own a firearm, but he had a TWIC card.

The credential Savage used to gain access — a Transportation Worker Identity Credential — is issued by the Transportation Security Administration and is valid for five years. In the news release, the Navy said the card alone doesn’t authorize base access. People also have other documents to gain entry, including a manifest of items to be delivered or a receipt indicating an item to be picked up, said Beth Baker, a spokeswoman for the Norfolk-based Navy Region Mid-Atlantic.

People with criminal records for certain crimes are allowed to have a TWIC card, as long as they have been out of prison for at least 5 years, according to TSA’s website. However, applicants can also apply for a waiver.

He apparently went up onto the ship, disarmed the Petty Officer of the Watch and used the gun to shoot a MA2 Mark Mayo.


People who view aggressive violence as a way to solve their personal problems generally identify themselves long before their first murder.

It won’t bring him back, but the Navy is calling MA2 Mayo a hero for his actions.

No doubt some old signalman will be along presently to tell me that this former MM2 did the signal flags wrong.

BZ Mayo.


Domestic violence murder in Marshville

This is why the Moms are Demanding Action.

The husband of a woman found dead in a car on a Marshville street has been charged with first-degree murder.

Another law abiding gun owner who followed every law right up until he pulled the trigger?


Oh, a felon.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

Fourteen hour crime spree

How long does it take to prove you have zero respect for society’s rules?

Durham police arrested (Suspect) March 5 after a foot chase that followed a robbery at a Dollar General store, and by Tuesday they had obtained warrants charging him with two gunpoint crimes on March 4 and three on the day they captured him.

Police said the spree took place in about 14 hours.

Who runs about, robbing people at gunpoint?


People who long ago decided not to live an honest life.

Multi-state crime wave

Not only is he polluting our state, he’s down in Georgia ripping them off as well.

A man for whom Durham sheriff’s deputies went looking because he is wanted in Georgia is now wanted in Durham, too, after they found stolen guns, more than 20,000 prescription pills, counterfeit money and $10,000 in real cash at the house where they had hoped they would find him, officials said Thursday.

He was ripping off pharmacies in Georgia. Who knows where he got the guns.


He must know that it’s illegal for felons to have guns.

Why didn’t he get a long prison sentence?

I can only hope that the judge learned his/her lesson on this.

Police say a 15-year-old who was shot in the face Monday evening has died of his injuries.

Why the judge? Study this carefully.


Look at what happened to him on January 27th of this year. He was convicted of “assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury” and “robbery with a dangerous weapon.” According to the story, he “was also arrested in Durham in 2012 after a shooting that left a man wounded.”

So this clown robbed and shot a man on May 17th of last year, was convicted of both crimes January 27th of this year, and was free to run about shooting 15 year olds in the face on March 10th. How is that possible? According to “A Citizen’s Guide to Structured Sentencing (PDF),” a Class E Felony (AWDWISI) has a presumptive sentence of 20-25 months in prison, and a Class D Felony(Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon) has a presumptive sentence of 51-64 months. At a bare minimum he should have been in prison for over 4 years!

This is why I carry a gun.

Break into enough houses and eventually you’ll find an armed homeowner

Nothing says “Get out of my house!” like a bullet.

According to Bailey, (Suspect 1) and (Suspect 2) attempted to forcibly enter a home on Dix Creek #1 Road in Leicester at 11:12 am. The homeowner, who was at home at the time of the break-in, fired a shot at the suspects, who then fled the scene.

Nobody was injured during the incident.

But a win is a win. The homeowner was just fine as well. So who did his gunfire chase off?

Suspect 1

Suspect 2

Bad people only respect force. What would they have done to an unarmed person?

Beating a man to death

Sometimes a beating leads to death.

Police have charged a 52-year-old Cary man with beating another man to death last summer in Southeast Raleigh.

Sometimes it takes a few days to die.

Last year, on June 29, paramedics were dispatched to the 100 block of Idlewild Avenue, east of downtown Raleigh, where a man was reported to be injured. They transported (Victim), 50, to WakeMed, where he was treated for head injuries and later released, said Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue.

On July 10, (Victim) returned to WakeMed complaining of health problems. He died at the hospital later that day.

11 days after the beating the victim died.



The Bully Moms will be happy to know that no guns were used in this killing.

Duke Park Robbers

What’s worse than criminals? Criminals working together.

Police say they are looking for two men who were involved in a series of daytime burglaries in North Durham.

The lede is misleading as they are actually looking for 4 people. The other two are underage.

Suspect 1

Suspect 2

This is why I carry, even at home. I am at home a lot during what would ordinarily be considered work hours. What am I supposed to do when confronted with 4 people breaking down my door if I don’t have, and use, a gun?

Criminality is a lifestyle

(Suspect)’s past caught up with him Monday along with a Raleigh police officer who arrested him on a larceny charge at a Walmart store and then charged him with being a habitual thief.

Those who have been following along at home know that criminals are people who commit crimes on a regular basis. They don’t wake up one day and decide suddenly that they’re going to stop following the laws and morals of society. They’ve been that way a long time.


Never forget that for the 10% you see, there’s the 90% hidden underwater.
