The story ended in a predictable way. The suspect who shot the van driver and accidentally shot his teenage nephew has taken his own life. Story of a gun.
NRA convention speaker/Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, January 2013:
“I’m Sheriff David Clarke, and I want to talk to you about something personal … your safety. It’s no longer a spectator sport; I need you in the game, but are you ready? With officers laid-off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option.”
Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn, April 15, 2015:
“What did we have Sunday? We had some clown take the law into his own hands and murder a guy who was doing what we expect good citizens to do, and oops, accidentally kill somebody else.”
Well, isn’t this completely, totally predictable. When you have one group of people constantly yammering about how you have the right–no, the obligation–to defend yourself and your family and a gun is the answer to every problem and your home is your castle etc. etc. etc. then mistakes will be made.
