Don’t mess with the cops in Texas. The citizens might not like it.
“It appears that law enforcement and the citizens of Brown County owe a debt of gratitude toward this man for his courage to act,” explained Grubbs. Sheriff Grubbs also noted that some may take this incident as an opportunity to promote gun control; however he felt it is an example of importance of the right to bear arms.
The citizen went back to his trailer, got his .357 Magnum and hit the shooter at least once, probably multiple times.
UPDATE: Another account of the story, complete with video from the citizen shooter.
“I’m just a citizen tryin’ to help an officer out.”
Old men should be dangerous.
