    Stupid... CCW tries to thwart robbery

    Police: Witness to iPhone theft shoots at suspects, lands in hot water with authorities

    By Noelle Crombie, The Oregonian
    May 26, 2010, 6:17AMRoger Witter's good intentions landed him in jail late Tuesday.

    Gresham police say Witter, 48, was in an AT&T store located at 533 Northwest Division Street in Gresham when two men stole multiple iPhones. Witter witnessed the theft and, instead of waiting for police, he took off after the men, firing at their getaway car

    Like the Boone County Sheriff would say “You’re in a heap of trouble now”. Defiantly a poor move on Witter’s part.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    Bad idea. Hopefully other "mall ninjas" will get the message that they are not police.
    One of the most dangerous political philosophies afflicting America today is the belief that we can’t allow anyone to suffer the natural consequences of their own stupidity.

    "Witter told police he didn't feel that his own life – or anyone else's – was in danger."

    It's not such a good idea to play Judge, Jury, & Potential Executioner.
    The penalty for stealing iPhones from an AT&T store is not Death.
    And if he would have had a ricochet and injured or killed an innocent...

    He thought his life was in danger with them running off with all of those phones. I mean, if he'd suffered a heart attack due to this crime, how would he have called 911?

    This guy should not have a cc permit, and I think they'll take care of that for him now.
