GOOD: Would Be Robber Shot By Intended Victim - Scottsboro, AL
Would-be Scottsboro robber gets shot in stomach, hospitalized - NewsFlash - al.com
Good on the intended victim for being prepared.
SCOTTSBORO, Ala. (AP) — A would-be thief was shot in the stomach as he tried to rob a man over the weekend and is recovering in Tennessee, where he fled after the incident in Scottsboro, police said Monday.
Scottsboro Police Chief Ralph Dawe said the suspect, whose name has not been released, tried to rob a man near Highlands Medical Center around 2 a.m. Saturday.
He said the robbery target pulled a gun and shot the suspect in the abdomen. The suspect then fled to Chattanooga, Tenn., where he is being treated at Erlanger Hospital.
Dawe said there were outstanding arrest warrants for the man on first-degree robbery charges for a similar incident at a local Wal-Mart and he will be extradited back to Alabama when his medical condition improves.
He said the information compiled so far provides no reason to charge the person who shot the robbery suspect.
Dawe said Tennessee authorities contacted their Alabama counterparts after the man gave differnt versions of how he ended up with the gunshot wound.
"He gave several stories, but all accounts of what happened involved Scottsboro, so they called us," Dawe said.
"The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground."

+10 for both AL and TN for not publishing the victims name. Of course they should have published the BG's name so others would know to watch out for him!

Arrested and let go...arrested and let go...arrested and let go...
How can this happen so many times? This is EXACTLY the problem with our 'injustice system'...
Every time some shoots and kill a dirtbag/thug, they rid society of 'gargage' and unnecessary taxpayer expense.
Stay armed...help the taxpayers...stay stay safe!

Thats the way the court handle cases in Chattanooga. Its amazing how many repeat criminals are released on bond or handed suspended sentences.
