Two bystanders intervene in robbery, one armed and one not

Postby Ohio9 » Mon Jan 23, 2017 6:42 pm

Guess which one ended up stopping the incident and which one ended up dead?

Of course this is nothing against the dead good guy. Anyone who dies trying to protect others is worthy of respect, whether they are armed or not. It's just a shame his courage and willingness to help others was not supplemented with a proper tool for the job. Thankfully someone else with the same aspects was.

Jewelry stores are dangerous. Please be aware.
Maintain the sport. Take a kid shooting.

You seriously need to consider no longer reading and watching CNN. Just another example of how biased they are. They call the civilian without a gun who intervened and got killed as "being hailed a good Samaritan", and then showed his picture. The CCW holder who actually stopped the incident only got a quick mention. It would just be too much for them to openly admit that a CCW holder did a good thing, so they glaze over it and focus the story on something else. Classic.

It's possible the armed guy didn't want his picture or his name in the paper. People involved in these cases routinely request the media not identify them in reports. But yeah he should have gotten a bigger mention then just one sentence.

Yes. There was an armed robbery at a convenience store here yesterday where a bystander shot the perp. According to the news report (meh) the shooter knew the perp and the newsflunkies were making all efforts to identify the shooter.
