    I love the South

    Small Georgia Town Forms Posse, Corners Armed Robbery Suspect - WGXA.TV | FOX 24 & ABC 16 | Macon & Middle Georgia

    "People just kept coming around and they were mad, people in Rhine were mad," Lowery said. "Here we had an armed robbery in the middle of the day at Aden's and they wanted to form a posse."

    Lowery says more than 20 people, many of them armed, spread out looking for the gunman, in trucks and on foot.

    "We didn't have no leader of it all, we just went all our separate ways and the people in Rhine they knew they were going to get that rascal.....A nice lady like that working at Aden's, trying to make a living, and some thug come in there trying to rob her, people in Rhine ain't going to put up with that," Lowery said.

    Major Donald Helms of the Dodge County Sheriff's Office says it's just a story of good guys with guns. People in a small town exercising their right to bear arms.

    "You might not want to come down there and mess with the Rhine folks," Helms said.

    Good for them. Glad it turned out well. If it turned into a shoot out the media storm would be unbearable. Never gonna hear a peep out of them now.

    Dodge County.

    Why does that sound so appropriate?

    Fired a warning shot...

    Self made vigilance committee...

    booger hook control in the video...

    North or south, there's a lot wrong with the picture this paints.

    At least the vigilance committee waited on the sheriff to do the arresting... they coulda just got a hank o' rope... and done what needed doin' to that there thief.

    Still a part of me is proud that a community would take care of it's own...

    Faux MSNBC story rewrite:

    Foolish hillbillies corner armed robber.

    After taking all their weapons, and pistol whipping them, the robber mercifully spared their lives, and fled the scene. We can only be grateful that the robber showed such good compassion and good judgment in this situation. More than we can say of those armed hillbillies that endangered not only themselves, but the children of their community.

    Further, we urge the Sheriff there to take immediate action to arrest the mob, at his soonest, and of course to confiscate their guns, in hopes of making this hillbilly community safer for all.

    Cool

    I did a bit of traveling when I was stationed in Texas going to school. Met some truly wonderful folks. And I never met a Southerner I didn't like.

    I'd say that armed robber was darn lucky to get turned over to the Sheriff.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this story. I guess I could go either way on it.

    Myself and some neighbors confronted a freelance socialist snooping at an absent neighbors property. LEO took him away on outstanding warrants. No weapons were displayed other than the LEO's but I know at least one was present.

    And I LOVE the Southern Zoos also where not only is there a sign on each zoo cage with the name & a description of the animal but, the sign also includes a recipe for how to cook it.

    Being from the "North" I was shocked to see armed civilians walking the streets south of Houston with shotguns with the intention of reducing crime back in the early 90's. It worked.
    Criminals fear armed civilians much more than they fear the Po-Po.....guess its because we don't carry a Taser.....and we're not required to arrest you and read you your rights.
