    Good: acute failure of the victim selection process

    Off-duty police officer shoots alleged home intruder | azfamily.com Phoenix

    TOLLESON, Ariz. – Police say a teen broke into a Tolleson home on Tuesday afternoon.

    The noise woke up the homeowner – an off-duty 26-year-old Tolleson police officer – who was napping upstairs.

    The intruder is described as a 17-year-old African-American male. His name hasn’t been released by investigators.

    “When he came down the stairs, the intruder produced a large rock that he had in his hand…at which time the homeowner fired one round,” said Sgt. Crump.

    The suspect was hit in the head.

    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    On a positive note, looks like the brother might have a nugget on his shoulders.

    Quote from the article:
    “If you feel scared you have the right to protect yourself…It makes me want to be a little more aware of my situation and maybe report some things if I do see things. It also makes me want to consider having weapons in my home,” said Six.

    Ya think?
    Good on the officer, must be a good shot.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    “When he left he said he was going to be back because he was going to do something real quick and he left and I guess he caught up with his friends," said Muhammad. "I guess he was stupid enough to go with it, and the dude shot him,”

    Muhammad said he doesn’t approve of his younger brother’s alleged actions, but is extremely worried about him. “All I hope is that he’s still alive and he can come back home.”
    Indeed. I hear "My brother is an idiot, but I do hope he's OK."

    Careful-he was an alleged home intruder.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    When a 17 y.o. stranger is in the middle of my living room holding up a rock as a weapon...he IS a home intruder and runs the genuine risk of being a DEAD home intruder.

    “The individual was turned away from him was turned away from him at the current time and as he challenged him, when he came down the stairs, the intruder produced a large rock that he had in his hand…at which time the homeowner fired one round,” said Sgt. Crump.
    Never take a rock to a gun fight.

    Give that officer a marksmanship award! Nice shot sir. I wonder if he played any of those evil violent video games when he was younger?

    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!
