    "The way they're blasting him is ridiculous," Kimberly Davis, James Seay's sister. "If you were dressed undercover - they are not in uniform - and you grab my arm, I'm going to defend myself, too."
    A felon is caught in the act of committing armed robbery and is thereby justified in committing attempted murder against the police who are trying to take him down?

    Uh ... no.

    Whomever is teaching these idiot, amoral children is destroying society. Siblings, friends, parents, priests ... they all come to the rescue of the poor, downtrodden children who have no choice but to defend themselves. Each has a hand in the destruction. What a waste.

    This happened 1 block from the post office I went to just the other night...

    And this story happened about 1 1/2 miles from my home... definitely walking distance.

    Damn right I carry... and special thanks to all of the above dirtbags... my hunnee was watching the news and asked me again about the CC class... I think there may be a new S&W revolver about to join the family...

    OMG, he would NEVER do something like that... Well guess WHAT, he just did. He committed armed robbery and than proceeded to shoot a police officer, 4 hits and multiple shots... Throw the little punk in front a firing squad and call it a day. Save the tax payers some money.

    As I have posted on another thread some time ago, I know a young man doing serious time now as a young adult, because his family and the juvenile authorities taught him he could always skate and the "rules" were just for suckers.

    If not now, it will happen later -- most likely after someone else is hurt or killed.

    Flanagan said his client was sorry for what had happened.

    "The remorse is definitely there," Flanagan said.

    Am I the only one thinking that, had the officers gone in with guns ablazin', the family would have been screaming "Why did they have to gun down my boy, he was innocent, just with the wrong crowd, never got into trouble, and WHY DIDN'T THEY JUST WAIT UNTIL THE BOYS CAME OUT TO ARREST THEM??"

    Pardon me if this sounds just a little callous, but why do we tolerate stupid PC bulloney comments like this in the press? Why doesn't someone, just once, stand up and say "Ya know, the kid had just robbed a store, admitted to being commanded to stop, and had an unauthorized firearm on his person. If his entire ex-con family wants to complain, they might want to be sure they don't still have any outstanding warrants out before we start running them too..."

    Unfortunately enough people have been trained to think that political correctness is, well, correct. Just like the thought process that "it's not my fault, someone else is to blame" is accepted with barely a twitch. I'm not sure whats to blame, or if there is any one thing to blame.

    I'd only have one thing to say to the family: Did he or did not shoot a cop after comitting armed robbery?? Yes?? Then sit down and shut up. End of story.

    The fact that the family's comments were reported in the manner that they were is another problem.

    The problem is really twofold:

    1. You are not responsible for your actions. Its really someone else's fault (like society's fault)

    2. Truth is relative. There is no absolute truth or right or wrong. What is true/right for you is all that matters.

    Until people stop buying into these lies we will keep having problems like this.

    My thoughts exactly on both counts !!!
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"
