More on the baseball bat murder of the BP Station employee in Milwaukee. Lesson learned: when chasing a dindu shoplifter don’t throw your bat at him and then turn your back.
“Investigators say around 9:00 a.m. on January 5th, a male suspect, later identified as Derrick Williams, stole something from the gas station and the gas station employee, Singh, chased after him. Outside, there was a struggle, and Singh suffered fatal injuries.”
“Investigators spoke with a witness, who indicated he saw Williams being chased by a gas station attendant, later determined to be Singh. The witness stated that Singh was carrying a bat as he chased Williams, and that Singh then threw the bat at Williams and yelled, “don’t come back.” The witness stated that Singh then turned back to go to the gas station. That’s when Williams, according to the witness, picked up the bat, walked up behind Singh and hit him in the head with the bat. The witness heard Williams say “you tried to hit me with a bat, (expletive).”
“According to the criminal complaint, Williams admitted to authorities that he was being chased by Singh, who threw a baseball bat at him. Williams then admitted to picking up the bat and hitting Singh four times. If convicted, Williams could face more than 70 years in prison. He is due back in court on February 16th.”
“One of these days folks are going to learn that you don’t go outside and expose yourself to potential threats when you hear a bump in the night, but that apparently isn’t going to come any time soon, as we have our second story of a citizen shooting and killing a prowler outside his home and winding up in hot water with the police just this weekend.”
Indeed, Bob Owens is correct about that. Unfortunately we have been collectively conditioned by decades of movies and TV shows to believe that going outside to confront an intruder is what you must do. Like how the plucky farmer in the western movie goes out on his porch with his shotgun or rifle to confront the outlaws, right? Unfortunately modern law does not support that course of action. The law supposes you should remain inside behind locked doors where you are safe and call the police, not go outside looking for a fight. The courts believe that all human life is sacred, even that of criminals, so the courts hold that citizens should avoid conflict and not seek to use lethal force. Not unless someone’s life is in danger. Also as Kevin Michalowski, editor of Concealed Carry magazine says, one shouldn’t use 1960’s cowboy movies as a guide on gun-fighting tactics in the real world.

Funny! Yeah, if PM Justin Trudeau wants to virtue signal by taking all the Trump banned "refugees”, let him go. We can already see what all this vibrant diversity is doing to heretofore peaceful Canadian society.
“Canada also gives us a test case to compare to America’s plan. In five years we can check back and see how it turned out for them. If it worked, we can reassess. Until then we obviously need to wall-off Canada. But that’s another topic.”
“Now that I think about it, the Middle East has a lot of space too. Remind me again why Muslim countries are banning Muslim immigrants. Is it because they are Hitler?”
“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!

“I’m Sheriff Clarke. To avoid being a victim of crime you don’t have to be the toughest or fastest person on the block. Your age and gender don’t matter either. Here’s what’s important…attention to your surroundings is critical…recognize the threat… know who’s around you when walking down the street, getting into your car or going into your home. And if you smell trouble??? Trust your instincts…be decisive…use the element of surprise against your attacker, and most importantly, be ruthless in your response. Are you ready?”
- Sheriff David Clarke, Milwaukee County, Radio PSA
Sheriff Clark speaks with straight tongue. We’re all weary of being preached at by these virtue signaling one-percenters. The very people who created the mess the rest of us are forced to deal with on a daily basis.
