Sanford PD speaks out on Treyvan shooting

The Sanford PD detectives who investigated the Treyvan shooting have spoken out. Video embedding is disabled, so go HERE.
Key Points
  1. Prosecutors told police that there wasn’t enough evidence to win a manslaughter case.
  2. Zimmerman claims Martin attacked him and the voice screaming for help was Zimmerman’s. Witnesses back up the claim that Martin was the aggressor.
  3. Treyvan’s father listened to the tape and told cops that the voice was not his son. 
They refer to an Orlando Sentinel newspaper report, which the Chief of Police says is accurate. If anyone can find a link to that article, please let me know.

Run and she’s done

The “Run and You’re Done” law in North Carolina means that if you flee in your vehicle from the cops, they sieze your car and sell it. This is why felony speeding to elude is treated so seriously.
How bad was it?
100 miles per hour across a 4 lane divided highway. We can only pray that the victim never saw it coming and was killed instantly. It’s bad enough that she was murdered, let’s hope she didn’t suffer first.
He’s now charged with murder, common law robbery, and assault on a government official. How’d he get the last charge?
Thank God for the professionalism of that deputy. She not only successfully defended herself, she restrained what would have been a natural impulse to shoot him dead and save the world a lot of trouble.

Meanwhile in Sarah Brady Paradise: Again with the Leg Shots edition

It’s starting to look like a pattern
So, anyone want to bet that the gun was not received by the attacker in a legal fashion?
Gun control. It’s what you do instead of something.

Who shoots his girlfriend with a sawed off shotgun?*

It’s hard to understand why anyone would do something like this.
He got mad at his girlfriend, and when she walked away from him he took a sawed off shotgun and shot her through the bathroom door.  Then he shot himself in the leg.
Is this another example of crazed gun owners using their guns to hurt their wives and girlfriends?
Or is it yet one more example of a felon with a gun acting like a felon with a gun?
Gun control will only affect those who are least likely to cause trouble for others. The people who cause the vast majority of the mayhem in the world are already banned from owning guns. Banning the rest of us from having guns doesn’t change that.

* NC law labels NFA items like short barreled shotguns, short barreled rifles, machine guns, and silencers as “Weapons of Mass Distruction. The suspect was charged with possession of a weapon of mass destruction, therefore the shotgun he used is almost certainly a sawed off shotgun.

Meanwhile in Sarah Brady Paradise: He was not Randomly Shot in the Leg edition

For a country that bans handguns entirely, and makes the process of getting a rifle or shotgun as pleasant as a 6 month root canal, they sure seem to have a lot of crime.
So was he attacked by a total stranger?
So how many gun grabber lies can be busted with just this one story? A country that is the next best thing to gun free and there is gun crime. Add to that the fact that it’s another “victim knew the attacker” situation. Given that they haven’t simply arrested his significant other, I guess that the old “it’s family members shooting each other” lie is busted again as well.
Here’s a clue. Guns will always be with us. Criminals will always be with us. Pretending that you can ban one or the other only makes you look like a fool.

At first I wanted to make a joke

Bollywood is known for singing and dancing movies, so I wondered how they will handle this one.
But the more I thought about it, the less I felt it was appropriate to make stupid wisecracks.
I will certainly be watching this.
In the meantime, those that want to watch an interesting movie about terrorism should catch this on Netflix
Instant or DVD.

That was a quick turnaround

Update: Cops say he isn’t the one. They are seeking another suspect.

Fayetteville is no stranger to criminal violence. If you read the newspapers you see a lot of crime and a lot of violence, including with guns. The suspect in a recent shooting outside a nightclub turned himself in.



He shot two people, killing one.


He only just got out of prison in January. Hopefully he won’t ever be getting out again.

Meanwhile in Sarah Brady Paradise: Shot in the Face edition

The community got thanked, but the victim is still dead.
And why were they thanked?
But the fact remains that in a country where guns are next to impossible to get legally, the murder still happened.
That gun control sure works well, doesn’t it?

Go to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200

Sometimes it does not pay to be a criminal. Sometimes you pick on the wrong folks.
How many kinds of screwed up is this? Dude had a sawed off shotgun, got surprised be a homeowner, and then got stripped naked by an angry mob. It’s the fleeing on the skateboard that kills me.
I’ve got a dollar that says his biggest problem was his saggy pants. I’ll bet that the mob didn’t pull too hard before they came off.
Just put him in jail and leave him there.
