Recently, three guys from the hood in north St Louis drove more than 100 miles to steal two cars. Of course the neighbors snitched and they got caught about sixty miles from St Louie. Every little town and local sheriff got in on this chase and they finally got them with some spike strips. Looked them up on casenet. All were listed. Two had been in jail. One was still on parole. They will find the local judicial process is less of a revolving door out here in the sticks. I hope the prosecutors and judges send the city thugs a message that gets back to the hood. We have plenty of our own criminals and don't need any from the city.

"Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country,"
--Mayor Marion Barry, Washington , DC .
There was a period when I sold my guns and quietly put my head in the sand. I took on the vision that my exposure to crime was so low that it would be 1:1,000,000 chance of me being a victim. Then something happened and I realized the odds are now more like 1:100. As our economy continues to tank, the ratio will continue to increase against us all. 'Change we can believe in...'

"Only a coward supports gun control, you know how to stop car jacking? Shoot the carjacker. If someone is going to kill me for my Buick, I'm gonna shoot until I'm out of ammo, and then I'll call 911."

Couldn't help but notice that the second story described a white male as the aggressor but the first had no ethnic description. In this PC world it is okay to show what a problem the white male is but no other race as the media would not want to be accused of showing prejudice.
While I advocate everyone who can carry should carry when they feel it is right or they just want to, Tyler, Texas is not exactly a little home town like one might be led to believe, 108,000+ is not exactly your Mom and Pop little town of 12,000 or 2,500 or even 600 in the middle of the Iowa Corn Fields ok.

I know exactly what you mean we just had a drive by in our little town of Milbridge, Maine. I absolutly can't believe it but I guess it just goes to show you anything can and will happen anywhere it so desires.
