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?

Second Amendment Foundation sues to overturn citizenship requirement for NC Concealed Handgun Permits

It’s about damn time.

The Second Amendment Foundation today filed a lawsuit in federal district court in North Carolina on behalf of an Australian citizen who legally resides in the state, but cannot obtain a concealed carry permit under a state law that only allows citizens to get such permits.

I’ve been nagging the NCGA to get this changed for a while now. GRNC tried to get it worked into a bill, but the Reps and Senators don’t want to do much for gun rights this session. Now they’re going to be forced to change it.

For those who have never seen this before, the lawsuit is a slam dunk. It is unconstitutional to deny ordinary rights to non-citizens based solely on the fact that they are not citizens. You can’t tell them they can’t freely speak. You can’t tell them they can’t peaceably assemble. And you can’t tell them they can’t have a concealed handgun permit.

NCGA, you brought this on yourself. You could have changed the law, but you didn’t. Now enjoy your lawsuit.

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.

Way to live down to the stereotypes

Funny story from yesterday’s news.

Police say a couple who appeared on the reality TV series “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” face charges after a real-life wedding in which the rings disappeared.

High Point police say 24-year-old (Suspect 1) and 22-year-old (Suspect 2) of Princeton, West Virginia, were arrested this week and charged with felony larceny. (Suspect 2) was maid of honor at a wedding where, according to a police report, the bride realized her purse with the wedding rings and $1,000 was missing.

Cops caught them with the purse, the rings, and the money.

So we have gypsies, stealing things. Way to live down to the stereotypes, guys.

Just two good ol’ boys, never meaning no harm

Luckily there were no guns involved. Someone might have gotten hurt.

(Victim) and the suspect, also known as Little Johnny, started fighting after the suspect entered (Victim)’s home at 432 20th St. SW Sunday evening, neighbor (Witness) said. (Witness) said he was inside (Victim)’s home when the suspect took an oxygen tube out of (Victim)s wife’s nose, started kissing her and rubbed her breasts.

I think I would be pretty upset if someone did this to my wife.

(Victim) grabbed the suspect by the shirt and told him to stop touching his wife, (Witness) said. (Witness) remembered the suspect telling (Victim), “Don’t put your hands on me, man. That’s the worst thing you can do,” before the suspect left (Victim)’s house.

Well, he left. Problem solved, right?

(Witness) said the suspect and (Victim) were drinking alcohol.

Color me surprised. Did anyone else see this coming?

The suspect returned to the (Victim) residence a few minutes later, took off (Victim)’s wife’s oxygen tube again and resumed kissing her and stroking her chest, (Witness) said.

This would upset me a great deal.

A fight between (Victim) and the suspect ensued.

Not surprising.

The story goes on to tell how the victim eventually got stabbed during the ensuing fight, with people getting thrown out of windows and everything.

The story makes it sound like just two regular guys who got a little wild after a couple of beers and someone ended up dead. What sort of people act like this?

Suspect

Victim

The gun haters are always telling us that people are more commonly killed by people they know. Well felons have friends too.
