It happens day and night here
Around my crime infested cowtown they rob people at convenience stores day and night.
There is no way that our local police can do very much to protect us. It's be ready for anything or become the next victim on the news.
One night last week there were nine holdups and most were people getting gas at convenience stores or the clerk inside.
Yesterday three young dudes tried robbing this small northside secondhand store run by and older man and his wife.
They Implied they had guns and demanded money when the owner was slow to respond they knocked him down.
Well he pulled out this 38spl revolver "he had a CCW permit" and blasted away hitting one of the robbers in the back as he ran.
They jumped in a waiting auto and made it to a near by apartment complex. Where the mother of the young dude called EMSA for help.
This young kid died on the way to the hospital.
This is really nothing new around here last year 2005 we had 65 homicides. I am going to try real hard not to one of them homicide victims in 2006.
Wasn't it Edmund Burke...
who said something to the effect of, "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing"?
Glad all went well, Chris!
