    Talk about a bad week (for the dirtbag)...in the same week he was expelled from school, then expelled from life.
    Hopefully the other dirtbag will be charged with the murder.
    Nice defensive work on the part of the coach.

    Great outcome for the coach, students and the BGs. BUT, how could he carry on school property, especially in Detroit?

    He's 'possibly' a reserve LEO...... that explains that I believe. Regardless, it's a good thing he not only carried while at the school, but knew what to do with it when the time to act forced his hand.

    I caught that too...how in the world is the good guy defending himself and two teenage girls from armed thugs a "tragedy all the way around"? This is a good outcome not a bad one...the media always has things so sdrawkcabssa.

    Two dummies down. I notice they were quick to point out he's a reserve officer, I don't think it should matter.

    I think they pointed out he was a reserve officer to explain why he's allowed to carry at school.

    I agree in the fact, this is a great example of how the arming of the Good Guy will and does save lives. But that fact will go over all anti's head with out a slight understanding of reality.

    That's what is happening, in some news reports. For example ... Coach shoots teen robbers in Detroit:

    Quote Originally Posted by From the article, WDIV Local 4 News

    ^ In this news report, the apparent gun-wielding robber is portrayed as the victim.

    Mother does not believe her son was going to rob coach.

    “I lost my son and I want answers,” said Michael’s mother Renee Scott.
    ^ Nothing is said about what she's basing her belief on.

    And, at this point, the primary "answer" appears to be that her son was an armed robber caught in the act.


    Cannot find any corroborating reports of firearms being found at the scene that belonged to the assailants, though reports by at least two different news groups are basing the info from police sources:

    Quote Originally Posted by From the article

The coach told detectives the teens ambushed him with guns drawn. At one point, the teens pointed the guns at the girls and that’s when the coach shot both of the teens.

    Gee, I wonder why all the national media aren't headlining this story--or any other one where a citizen lawfully uses a gun to defend himself and others from scumbag hoodlums??? Oh, wait, I guess it just doesn't make as "good" a headline as a "mass murderer killing dozens with an 'assault rifle'".

    He has no pistol free zones outside of the federal pistol free zones. He was legal in the eyes of the law to carry on school property. He might (and I hate to say this) get in hot water with the school of which he is employed with for carrying a gun regardless of LEO status.

    Sure they would..... having an non LEO carrying a gun and protecting 2 students at a school goes against the grain of the anti gun folks.
