Charge his accomplice with murder

I love a story with a happy ending.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say a man died late Monday night after being shot by a man he was trying to rob.

And they even caught his accomplice.

Other CMPD officers, meanwhile, were able to stop the car a short distance away. The driver, 34-year-old (Suspect 2), was interviewed by detectives and then charged with armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery. Nothing was reported stolen.

And who were our winning contestants?

Suspect 1

Suspect 2

Charge the second with the murder of the first and that would mean we were safer by two criminals. It’s a win-win!

Careful with that gun, your victim might take it away and shoot you

You need to be careful who you try to rob in Charlotte. He might take your gun away and shoot you.

Officers said around 11:00 Wednesday, two Hispanic men were walking through the parking lot of the complex, when a black SUV raced up beside them.

Two gunmen jumped out, and tried to rob the victims.

A struggle ensued, with all four men wrestling for control of the firearm.

Jose Alberta Amaya, the 52-year old man who was being robbed, managed to twist the weapon and shoot the assailant twice, striking him in the head and chest.

The robbery victim is walking and talking, with a hole in his hand for his trouble. The robber sustained life threatening injuries. His buddy fled, but I would bet that the CMPD will have him in custody soon.

This is how all robberies should be punished. If you try to rob someone, you should get shot. Now all we have to do is get a gun for the would be victim. He shouldn’t be reduced to trying to borrow his attacker’s gun.

Teenager kills wife beating father

North Carolina has a law that makes it a misdemeanor to allow a minor to have access to a firearm. Luckily the law was not followed in this case.

Surry County deputies said a teenager saw (Suspect) violently assaulting his wife. The teen was the woman’s son, deputies told WXII. Neither the wife nor the son were identified by name.

The son, who was at home during the incident, tried to intervene but wasn’t successful, deputies said.

The son then shot (Suspect) once in the head after fearing (Suspect) would kill his wife, deputies said. (Suspect) died of the resulting gunshot wound, which came from a .410 shotgun, deputies said.

So this guy was married to the teen’s mother and was beating her so severely that the teen feared death or serious bodily injury to his mom. What sort of person would treat his wife this way?


The cops knew all about this thug.

Law enforcement officials have responded to 78 calls to the home in the last five years.

(Suspect) had a lengthy history of domestic abuse, deputies said.

The justice system had all the chances to correct this violent thug. Sadly, they failed and left a young man to solve the problem.

Heavily armed Alabama mom invites intruder to lie down for a bit (*Video*)

Intruder breaks in, mom calls cops, grabs gun, runs upstairs to daughters’ rooms and tells them to arm up.

Martha Lewis of Dora, Ala. told WVTM-TV it was about 3 a.m. Tuesday morning when she heard a loud noise, which turned out to be someone kicking in her door. Lewis said she called the police and grabbed her gun, then went to her daughters’ room and told them each to get something to defend themselves with. She said one grabbed an ax and one got a butcher knife.  

When momma’s got a gun and her two daughters can quickly lay their hands on a butcher knife and an axe, you’ve become the very definition of “failure in the victim selection process.”

The story has a happy ending.

The man stumbled outside into the yard where police found him, WVTM reported. Police said he’s 25-year-old Michael Jacobs and was hospitalized in stable condition. 

 And the daughters didn’t even have to swing the axe.

Watch the video above to see what Mom thinks of anti-gunners.

Update: It occurs to me that there are people in the world who would call this woman and her daughters “paranoid” for having a gun, knife, and an axe close to hand in the event of a home invasion. The anti self-defense crowd would insist that she quit living in fear. They don’t care if she and her daughters were raped, robbed, and murdered. They are perfectly willing to sacrifice this family to live in a world without legally owned weapons.

Citizen with a gun saves cop’s life

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.

 “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.

“Had this citizen not had a gun, this could have been a whole lot worse,” said Grubbs.

 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.

I sort of hope that they never solve this one

Do we arrest the shooter or do we give him a medal?

A 16-year-old girl was raped Sunday night, and her attacker – whose criminal history spans more than 20 years – was shot to death as he walked down the road away from her Richburg home, Chester County authorities said.

The girl called mom, mom called the cops, cops found his ass in the road just down the street with his birth certificate ballistically cancelled.

In the 1990s, according to the State Law Enforcement Division, (Suspect) was convicted of several assault and battery and disorderly conduct, drug and weapons possession, and copper theft charges. For his most recent conviction, a nonviolent burglary in 2007, he was sentenced to three years probation.

No one knows anything, no one’s saying anything.

I don’t blame them for keeping quiet. He sounds like the sort of person who needed to catch a bullet.

What we have here is a failure in the Victim Selection Process™

Woman tries to rob a man in Charlotte. Hilarity ensues.
I think I’d have loaded her into a stretcher and gotten her to the hospital as fast as the two nearest donkeys could drag her. Cause of death: Slow Donkeys.
The moral of the story is don’t rob people. They might be baring arms.

CHP holders NEVER stop crime!

You’ll shoot your eye out! Or at least you’ll never actually use your gun to stop a crime in progress. That’s what the anti-gunners tell us.
Not much info right now. But we can be sure of at least one thing. CHP holder 1, robber 0.
Good for the CHP holder.

Loser and bigger loser get caught by victims

In the grand scheme of criminals, these two have to be the biggest losers out there.
The people who use check cashing places do not have other options. They’d probably use a bank and have direct deposit if they could. Taking money from their hands is probably taking all the money that they have, and they are likely to react poorly.
The story does not say that Suspect 1 was taken to the hospital for severe injuries, which tells me that the pack didn’t beat him senseless. While I have a certain sympathy for beating robbers to within an inch of their lives, it is probably best that they turned him over to the proper authorities.
