    Stranded motorist robbed on Detroit freeway

    BTW, this occured about 1.5 miles west of the other story that I posted about the BG's following the GG into the police station parking lot.

    Does have a distinct odor of carp.

    Sounds like opportunity knocked...They were passing by and seen an easy mark.

    To address the gun issue sounds like he didn't have it on him because "he went for the gun" so much for the holster in the console or gun locker theory

    So, when and if you break down in Detroit... Do the right things... in the proper order
    1. Get the gun out.
    2. Make sure the safety's off.
    3. Lock the doors. Roll up the windows.
    4. Call 911.
    5. Turn on your flashers.
    6. Wait inside the vehicle for 15 minutes for the cops (or less, much less; for the robbers).
    7. If the robbers show up first.. you know what to do.

    DaTwa seems to have turned into a place filled with 'animals' preying upon one another.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    I've been there a few times. The place is a cesspool. There's rarely a moment in the day my handgun isn't on me. I couldn't imagine storing it somewhere in my vehicle. Live and learn, I guess.
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    The article said the BGs told him, "...if he reached for his gun they would kill him." How did they know he had a gun?

    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
