Looks like the victim was pretty aware of what was going on around him. The article doesn't give a ton of details but the victim saw the would be robbers coming and fired first.
Score one for the good guys.
It is not the Bill of Privileges. It is not the Bill of Permits. It is the Bill of Rights.
People should not be afraid of the government; the government should be afraid of the people.
clean shoot... way to be aware!
we have that. It is called "Parole".
Six for sure...Uh, I mean Five. Five for sure..
I'm confused. The shooter has been identified and in talking with police, but at the start of the article, detectives are still looking for the shooter? Is this two separate incidents or one?
It almost sounds like a BG tried to rob this guy while two of his friends stayed in the getaway van. The would-be robber got shot, but I unclear on how the two in the van ended up dead. Did they try to run the GG down after he shot their buddy?
I'll be keeping an eye out for more details on this.
Good riddence to young Tommy Lee Kenedy. Many future victims were spared and society gets to save a lot of money.
Too bad his name will be added to the statistic of all the unfortunate "children" killed by firearms in America.
"Some people go to bed with Lucifer..........then cry, cry, cry when they don't greet the day with God."
Very confusing report. The reporter must be smoking crack!
Tried to paint victim in aggresive role and bad guys deeds as fairly innocuous.
I'll reserve comments to "it looks like robbery foiled, good guy survives."
Need more details! Crappy article!
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
This article must have come from one of those "a thousand monkeys with a thousand typrewriter" experiments....at least I hope no paid journalist wrote that utter nonsense (and at least one paid editor reviewed it before allowing it to be published).
I now know less about what happened then I did before reading the article. What is it with the horrendous "journalism" on the boards today?
On the plus side, it appears that Jacksonville is a few thugs fewer today. At least, I think so...
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.
Of course, IMHO, clarity would have improved the headline as well.
"Teen robber killed" would be less inflammatory than the obligatory
"Another Teenager Killed in _________."

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
