Civilian Shoots Would-be Robber During Attempted Bank Hold-up

Way to go citizen! The bank robber will be thrown under the jail (as he should be) but Bernanke, Wall-Street, and our so called leaders steal BILLIONS each month but since their theft is codified in goverment regulations and dumped onto the unborn...they remain free to steal again and again and again.

Civilian?

See below

Not that I care if a bank

Not that I care if a bank gets robbed since they have been robbing us for a century however if I am inside and some yahoo points a gun threatening to shoot I am going to shoot him too before he shoots anyone especially me.

And of course the cops are investigating the shooter proving cops don't care about citizens they are just looking to find anyone they can charge with anything doesn't matter if he just saved a bunch of lives if he has an outstanding parking ticket he will be going to jail... Sigh!

The notion that

police can't be everywhere all the time threatens their job security.

I can hear the police already: "Good job, Sir, but we're going to have to take that as evidence."

No good deed goes unpunished.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

if I could

up arrow you more than once I would....

He's a citizen, not a civilian.

Citizens are called civilians only during war-time, right?

Either way, I'm pretty sure citizen outranks civilian, like Majors outrank Sergeants.

9-11 was a panda job.

Great Point Chris

very good point.

Oops I was wrong though sort of right.

This is from fiction by Robert Heinlein:
http://pencilsdown.blogspot.com/2007/07/citizens-vs-civilian...
'My last post spoke a lot about my belief that a good education, while not necessarily an inalienable right, is certainly in the best interests of democracy. That train of thought led me to the civic structure of Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein, in which there is a distinction between a citizen and a civilian. Science fiction isn't just about warp speed and time travel. The best authors of this genre have posed some fairly intriguing moral questions, and Heinlein is one of the best. In the novel, or the Casper van Dien flick, a citizen must give a minimum of two years military service before gaining the rights to vote or hold public office. Civilians choose not to accept responsibility for the body politic and forfeit those responsibilities and privileges...'

9-11 was a panda job.

Starship Troopers was the first thing I thought of ...

... when I saw your post lol.

Starship Troopers is one of the most famous allegories for the dangers of collectivism.

He was making a very clear - and very unflattering - comparison between the collectivist culture of the society they lived in and the hive nature of the bugs.

We soldiers

never refer to civilians as citizens. Anyone not in uniform is a civilian even stateside. So you are more correct than incorrect.

When we were/are ordered to get out of uniform and into our "Civies"... and be good when you go down town and interact with the "civilians", it changes ones view. More governing of the mind.

Think about this...

What developes more respect in your mind under this finctional situation"?

Sit 1: Alright soldiers of Alpha Company, you have a long 4 day weekend ahead. When you go down town or reach your destination, try not to piss off the German Citizens.

Sit 2: Alright soldiers of Alpha Company, you have a long 4 day weekend ahead. When you go down town or reach your destination, try not to piss off the German Civilians.

By using Citizens, that term itself gives an impression that they -the citizens- have authority, power or ownership over something/body.

By using Civilian, that term gives an impression that they are a lower less powerful group. Sub-human to a soldier, no authority, no ownership.

Interesting, no?

If military refer to people as civilians...

and the news media refer to people as civilians...

does that mean the news media are military???

9-11 was a panda job.

Admiralty or Maritime law

more likely.

One of the local banks in a nearby town has a no gun sign.

If they were being robbed while I was outside and carrying, I would just laugh and walk away. And I would not cooperate with the police by being a witness either.

Like to old saying, "Live by the sword, die by the sword", I would think "Live disarmed, die disarmed".

The bankers are criminals in suits, so why help them.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Is someone collecting links

Is someone collecting links to these types of videos?

Yes, the Police should investigate the Civilian shooter his "GUN

CONTROL" Sucks!. The guy walked away after being shot? Not on my watch... One shot, One Kill.

And if the Civilian had anything less than a .40 he should be beat sensless.

40mm Karr, no safety lock, no nothing. If it comes out of my holster I can assure you it is being used. And once again, when my round goes down range, hell follows close behind.

What a bunch of uptight people lately

my comment above was meant to lighten up the air around here, but all I get is hot air below? Take a mint people.

The civilian gets thumbs up from me...

Did you even here the part where the cops are investigating the civilian shooter? Probably not because you only listen and read what you want to see and hear.

If you would listen to everything,

especially the stuff I tend to point out in all pieces, you will catch the governing of the mind that is being pulled on you.

I down-voted you

because you care about being down voted. ;) And my 9mm's feelings were hurt.

Nah, I think you got down voted because you glorified killing. "One shot, one kill."

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

I have known several...

I have known a couple people that have been shot several times (and survived) that in the heat of the moment due to drugs, alcohol and adrenaline were unaware that they were shot. Never assume that one shot one kill unless you are professionally trained, under ideal circumstances and lucky that day. Two shots center mass and one to the head raises your chances of success, it is called the Mozambique drill. You sound like you have watched too many action movies and played too many video games. Maybe you should get out of your mothers basement more often.

One shot to the heart stops anyone in about 75 seconds..Sir. Hold your breath (similating your heart not beating) and tell me you can continue doing anything at that point. Now go run about 30 steps then try ut again (simulating the increased need for oxygen under stress) and hold you breath again for 45 seconds.

27 year army warrant officer tickle your fancy? I don't watch many movies and play no video games, so your denegration has no merit.

I retract my last...

I retract my last sentence but I stand by the remainder.

RickStone

admirable

and the remainder of your post has some validity/merit.

Touche'

Touche' HonorGod.

RickStone

Ok

Alright, Mr. HonorGod

easier said than done

stress makes you default to your lowest level of training and you fuck up, it's not really something you can prevent. It's only something you can continuously try to train to do less. Almost every high level pistol instructor will tell you that.

It could have been drugs or adrenaline which inclined the robber to be able to walk away, even with a CNS hit. The caliber debate is stupid because hydrostatic shock is a myth and shot placement is everything.

Beyond that, this is great, it won't be reported by the MSM but it's good to see ccw holders proving the anti ccw people wrong over and over. To boot it's from my home state.

One shot is not enough...

One shot is not enough of a deterrent but it is a start. It looks like all of those firearm sales that Obama has stimulated are starting to take effect.

RickStone

I just have one question...

Why?

The BANKSTERS are the enemy why are you protecting THEIR BS SYSTEM?

Are you serious?

Why? Because the man pulled a gun on a group of people. Even if he got the money, he may have killed them. This is entirely about self-defense, nothing more.
