    NORTH MIAMI-DADE-Man fatally shoots attacker

    NORTH MIAMI-DADE
    Man fatally shoots attacker
    By DAVID OVALLE
    dovalle@MiamiHerald.com

    A man in North Miami-Dade stopped a would-be robber with a bullet that proved fatal Thursday night, police said.

    Two men were trying to rob a third in front of 752 NW 102nd St. at about 9:45 p.m., Miami-Dade police said.

    One of the robbers escaped and was being hunted by police late Wednesday.

    It was not clear whether charges would be filed against the shooter.

    Florida's new ''Stand Your Ground'' law allows anyone who feels threatened to shoot -- even if they don't see a gun.

    There have been three high-profile self-defense killings in recent months -- none of the men involved was charged.

    In January, liquor-store owner Pedro Agudelo shot and killed an armed man who tried robbing the West Gables business. Five years earlier, Agudelo wounded a man in a similar robbery.

    In November, a Miami man tried robbing another man with a nickel-plated lighter made to look like a handgun. With a real gun, his victim shot and mortally wounded him.

    In October, a security guard at Tootsie's strip club in Miami Gardens shot into a car that was headed toward him. One man died, another was wounded.

    You gotta love the Miami Herald
    It was not clear whether charges would be filed against the shooter. = Is he gonna get away with it? The Horror!

    Florida's new ''Stand Your Ground'' law allows anyone who feels threatened to shoot -- even if they don't see a gun. = Not only that is bad, but if they come to you with a machete or a baseball bat, you should not defend yourself.

    Everey day I am convinced that The Herald belongs at the bottom of the parrot cage. Editorial page first.

    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Wow, the do put the "S" in slant, don't they? Why didn't they just say what they really felt:

    "Armed lunatic goes on killing spree - is stopped only when second victim runs away."
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    IF the guy stopped a robbery, obviously the two bg were going to use some kind of force...


    In October, a security guard at Tootsie's strip club in Miami Gardens shot into a car that was headed toward him. One man died, another was wounded.
    What was the security guard thinking no one has ever been killed by being run over...forgive the sarcasm

    Threat?

    What part of "Hey I want your money!!" is not threatening? Unless of course it is some Political Action Group (NRA excluded thank you very much)

    The media would never put a slant on a story. They would never misinform or embelish the truth. They would never put half truths.

    PHEW...... I tried my best there but couldn't continue. The liberal media is so wrong on so many levels on their reporting skills it is disgusting. They are so quick to glamourize their stories with new hot catch words to frightened the sheeple public. Words like "military grade" "assault rifles" "automatic weapons" "bomb making materials".
    Though we as a society have enabled the media to get away with it, if we decided to write to them or voice our disgust with either boycotting their product or those of their advertisers they would think twice....it is always funny how when getting hit it the pocket book makes people/business's think twice.
    Plain and simple...Bad people will always be bad - Good people need to protect themselves and take what ever measures to protect themselves.

    I would think that with so many people carying, these stupids would take up a new profession. Maybe they don't think far enough about whether this guy they gonna hit has a gun or not. Shame the 2nd slug got away. He deserved to be with his friend.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    What makes you crazy

    is to wonder how much news there would have been had it just been one more robbed and murdered victim.

    Come-on Texas and get that "Stand Your Ground" bill passed.

    Here is the kind of story that I would prefer to read...

    Man fatally shoots attacker
    By DAVID DIMWITT

    A man in North Miami-Dade punched the ticket of a would-be robber with a bullet that proved fatal Thursday night, police said.

    Two men were trying to rob a third in front of 751 NW 103nd St. at about 9:46 p.m., Miami-Dade police said.

    One of the robbers escaped and was being hunted by police that were following his blood trail.
    It was not clear when the mayor would publicly thank the store owner for doing his part to rid the city of robbers.
    .
    Florida's new ''Stand Your Ground'' law allows anyone who feels threatened to shoot -- which gives the law abiding citizen the upper hand against those that would commit a violent crime.

    There have been three high-profile self-defense killings in recent months -- none of the men involved were charged but after a review of the circumstances all three were given citizenship medals by the Mayor.

    In January, liquor-store owner Pedro Audelo shot and killed an armed man who tried robbing the West Gables business. Five years earlier, Audelo wounded a man in a similar robbery. The evidence is clear here...dont mess with Auedelo.

    In November, a Miami man tried robbing another man with a nickel-plated lighter made to look like a handgun. With a real gun, his victim shot and mortally wounded him and effectively removed him from the gene pool.

    In October, a security guard at Floosie's strip club in Miami Gardens shot into a car that was headed toward him. One man died, another was wounded. When interviewed, the security guard stated "don't try to run over security guards".




    If they are gonna put a slant on a story, I wish they'd do it in a way that WE could appreciate.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
