Via Weer’d comes the following (Link Warning as it goes to a site run by Joan and Jason Kilgore. All other links except the quote are safe)*:
The boy was armed with a loaded gun and his face was covered with a t-shirt. He approached a car in the parking lot of an apartment complex and ordered the driver to get out. In response, the driver pulled out a gun and shot the teen at least one time. The teen ran 30 feet, collapsed and died. The teen’s gun was cocked and ready to fire.
This was posted on their “Kid Shootings” blog. A blog they use to dance in the blood of children who die because someone shot them. Here’s a question though, who really killed that kid? I’m of the strong opinion he killed himself. Now someone else actually ran the instrument that caused his death, but it was the child’s decisions that resulted in his death.
Please note, we often hear about “suicide by cop” so how is this really different? Yeah the person may not be intending to die, but that is the risk that is carried by their actions.
That child was ready to kill the owner of that car. The owner did what he had to in order to survive. The kid had a choice though. He could have stayed home and played video games. He could have attempted to steal a different car. I already talked about this previously.
This post by our dear friends in the criminal occupational hazard reduction organization though shows us exactly what their attitudes are. They do not support the law abiding. They do not support and defend the innocent. They do not support and defend those who are forced to defend their life or declare it forfeit and arrive at the gates of heaven.
This post is further evidence of the statements I wrote in my Open Letter To Joan Peterson, who has never responded by the way. The facts are plain and clear though and we are obtaining more data points to support our conclusions. Our opponents hate and despise the law abiding and those who are honest within our society. They rise up and defend robbers, rapists, murders, and anyone who would do harm to another person.
Joan defended the assailant in the Kroger’s incident. Here Baldr Odinson (Jason Kilgore) defends a teenager who took a loaded firearm and threatened someone with it. The teenager was a mere 4 or 6lbs from taking someone’s life. They had done everything else necessary to do the deed other than apply another 4 or 6 lbs. to the trigger. How does one say their intent is anything but possibly fatal to your well being at that point?
As was said by Sean earlier today as well as made a quote of the day:
“I didn’t kill him, he killed himself. I just carried the bullet for a while.”
It was the choices of that teenager that resulted in his death. Not the gun, not the car he was trying to steal, not the victim who was being robbed.
It is telling since it is well known that the rate of accidents involving firearms has been steadily decreasing. Obviously it’s low enough that they have to resort to posting children who enter a life of crime and discover that life has consequences.
*As a side note I actually left a comment on their blog. I am posting it here as well as linking to this post. Just because they can control the signal on their site doesn’t mean they can block it from the internet.
I guess car jacking and assault with a deadly weapon isn’t a crime if you’re under 18 in your book.
Do law abiding citizens need to ask for id now when being assaulted and threatened with a deadly weapon before defending themselves?
It’s good to see that you’re abusing the victim in this case and dancing in the blood of the aggressor to push your political agenda. We can’t have honest law abiding folks fight back against someone who had a loaded and cocked firearm pointed at them and threatening them.
Tell me, would a cop ask for ID in that instance prior to shooting them?
That was a reasonable use of force no matter how you cut it. The solution to this problem is simple. Educate your children that there are consequences to your actions. Sometimes those consequences are dire and if you point a loaded firearm at someone attempting to rob them, they’re liable to take you seriously. So seriously infact that they will defend themselves which may result in your recidivism rate being effectively reduced to zero.
I look at this as a parenting failure and thank god the victim had a firearm and was able to protect his life. Unlike you, I don’t defend people who abuse the good in society. I care about the good and if someone would rather be bad, that’s their choice and there’s consequences to your choices good or bad.
By the way, I’ve posted this on my blog too so censoring it won’t help.
