No SWAT Gear, No MRAP, No Stinkin' Badges; When Men were Real Men: Way Things Used to Be; Armed Family save Girl, kill Kidnapper

Hey Hoplophobes: Guns in Good Hands = the Great Equalizer.

Get used to it.

Another relative said it was “upsetting” Bethany was found by family members and not police, a criticism Lafayette Police Department spokesman Cpl. Paul Mouton doesn’t think is fair.

Armed Family Frees Abducted Woman from Violent Kidnapper
Family’s descent on kidnapper “like a movie unfolding”

After police efforts proved fruitless, the family of a kidnapped woman demonstrated why the Second Amendment is important when they took matters into their own hands last Friday. They confronted the abductor at his hideout and killed him, rescuing the victim.

A tipoff to her whereabouts sparked the search for 29-year-old Bethany Arcenaux in an abandoned house in Duson, Louisiana yesterday morning. She was suspected to have been abducted earlier in the week by 29-year-old Scott Thomas, the father of her 2-year-old son.

“We found her. We went and got her in that house. We kicked doors down. It was like a movie unfolding,” Bethany’s brother Ryan Arceneaux described to reporters. He was one of a group of about six family members that ascended on the house. “If we would have waited, she would have been dead.”

Family rescues kidnapped Duson woman, kills captor

The family of a Duson woman kidnapped earlier in the week tracked down and killed her alleged abductor Friday, authorities said.

Police said Bethany Arceneaux, 29, was kidnapped Wednesday by Scott Thomas, the father of her son. But it was family members who were tipped to an abandoned house near Anderson and Fieldspan roads.

Family said they didn’t know what to expect when they showed up to the home early Friday. A half dozen of them converged on the house, kicked down the door and found her inside, bloodied and repeatedly stabbed.

The dramatic moment an uncle carried his terrified and bloodied niece to safety after she was kidnapped and held hostage in an abandoned Louisiana house was caught on camera today.

Bethany Arceneaux was taken hostage on Wednesday evening by Scott Thomas, her ex-boyfriend and father of her child.

A few hours after Marcus Arceneaux was pictured carrying his niece from a vacant house in Duson, a police swat team entered the building and Thomas was found shot dead.

A few hours after Marcus Arceneaux was pictured carrying his bloodied niece Bethany to safety yesterday, the young woman's family have revealed how they tracked down and took on her kidnapper in a deadly confrontation.

Two days after the 29-year-old mother was abducted by her ex-boyfriend Scott Thomas, her family found her being held hostage in an abandoned Louisiana house.

In the violent confrontation that followed, Miss Arceneaux was stabbed by Thomas who was then apparently shot dead as her rescuers took justice into their own hands.

Family members of Bethany Arceneaux say she is alive. We're told she was found inside a vacant Anderson Road home in Duson. Arceneaux has been taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.

Family members also tell us they are the ones that found Arceneaux. Witnesses tell us gunfire was exchanged with the alleged kidnapper - Scott Thomas. We're told he's still in the house at this time; no word on if he is injured. We're waiting for official police comment.

Scott Thomas Dead, Bethany Arceneaux In Stable Condition

DUSON, La. (KPEL) — Scott Thomas, the man who allegedly kidnapped the mother of his child, Bethany Arceneaux, is dead.

Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Captain Kip Judice said family of members of Arceneaux apparently killed Thomas while trying to protect her from further harm. The exact details of his death are still being investigated.

“Family members are walking through a pasture with an abandoned home…and heard a yell from inside the home,” Judice said. “Those family members entered the home and confronted Mr. Scott Thomas…who began to harm the victim. At that point, a confrontation ensued between the family member and Mr. Thomas.”

“A SWAT team was sent into the home,” Judice said, “and upon entry into the home, we found him dead.”

Way to go, Hell yea.

now watch the DA charge them with murder.

meow

Awesome post! I have always

Awesome post! I have always said, the less police, the more justice. There should be a huge Police boycott. Imagine how close it would make our communities knowing that we all have to deal with our neighborhoods crime, personally?

Like NWA says.... lol


http://youtu.be/us-Ejanqseg

thx for post ancap

If they waited for the COPs to do anything, she could have been dead already.

I hope they shot the abductor in the jewels before the face.

ditto that!

If what they're reporting about the alleged kidnapper turns out to be true: any scumbag who thinks it's okay to beat up innocent unarmed woman, terrorizes her to the point of leaving a long detailed documented history of violence committed against her, along with restraining order (look what good that piece of paper and legalese alchemy did) in the end as is the case in actual reality and not hoplophobe's unicorn land, mini projectiles punching holes in the right places is what stopped a violent thug: the scumbag desereved what he himself has solely sown by individual decisions he's consciously made.

Now, how about that: Ms. Karma IS a biitch, ain't she? LOL

PS. Plus, believe the hero uncle said in that short news segment that he had just buried his own brother; imagine the sense of urgency in needing to take care of the surviving niece (regardless of whether she's a grown adult or not, his extended protective paternal instincts remains) kicked Iin overtime after observing the abductor/assailant STAB her.

NOLA boys sure know how to look after their own, that's for sure; note the iconic photo: not only did he protect her from her would-be killer, he even carried her injured body into his SUV because the ambulance wasn't nearby, or considering the terrain, simply couldn't be parked and waiting on an unpaved road.

From beginning to end, the uncle's a real man's man (at least when it comes to this specific incident, regardless of what his personal history may or may not be).

Bravo! I'd say. We need more men like him in this fast degenerating world!

"No charges made against family..."

That family had just buried another relative within the week. They weren't about to lose another of their own. "No charges made against family yet as Sheriff's office says they acted in 'defense of Arceneaux'." As it should be. Yes, the uncle is the hero here. But while this post mocks law enforcement, he thanked the police who were out there trying to find her.

~ John Muir

"mocks" state actors?? always.

Yes the uncle did thank them for doing what they're already getting paid to do, but seems more of a genuine courteous personality.

Never understood why the world should go around constantly thanking state-actors when nobody ever goes around seeing a 'need' to thank entrepreneurs.

I thank those around me whether they're family, friends, strangers, or plumbers, mechanics, electricians I contract to pay for their services. But I do so out of voluntary volition and I like to let them know that they should be appreciated.

But no, and especially when one is culturally socially engineered to be TOLD to do so? Somehow can't find a 'need' within me to want to thank a guild of institutionalized 'legalized' gang/cartel of violent thugs thieves and killers.

"this post mocks law enforcement"??

To be blunt: no, not really, but even if so, so what?

They want to act like collectivists and act like a special upper caste in a supposed casteless society, and operate under 'you attack one of us, then you attack all us'-collectivist modus operandi?

If so, then by their own 'logic' if one of them commits a grave crime, cheat, steal, assault, rape, torture, and kill, guess they're all guilty as well.

Can't be a collectivist and protest being treated like one when it becomes PR- inconvenient for them.

Now if they were 'good' collectivists seeing as how keeping around "bad apples" are bad for their entire guild let alone PR image, and their standard protocol is to 'defend and keep them' rather than boot/purge or punish them, they shouldn't be surprised when masses of their citizen employers are less than 'grateful' for their very unnecessary paid existence, especially now that they're routinely assaulting raping and murdering innocent humans everyday.

Long story short, if there ever were an entire profession that NEEDS some well deserved mockin'? It's the state thugs in blue.

Frankly at this juncture in history, I see them as nothing more than a taxpayer-funded Alqaeda with a great statist PR-firm, aka. government.

Oh wait... Al-CIA-da IS taxpayer funded and has a great PR-firm paid for by the taxpayers in the form of govt, aka the White House!

Never mind. LOL

But apropos of your initial point of contention:

[Good. Now, we can all be spared the usual parade of State actors congratulating themselves on what great heroes they are, never ending buffet of empty unsubstantiated platitudes, why we 'need them,' why we should pay them more, why we should give them more toys to oppress and murder us with,' etc. etc. etc.]

I do not see how citing an obvious self-evident truthful reality can ever be considered "mocking."

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

I can only agree with some of what you said. I believe in

individualism, and part of that is judging people *as* individuals. I'm in agreement with Ron Paul about that - whether for him it's a political ideal, religious/personal belief, or both (for me it's both); it's something Martin Luther King, Jr. also believed.

While certain generalizations about "groups" can be made - indeed, it's what marketing, for one, is based on, e.g., how they know whom to direct advertising to in terms of age, income, education, and other demographics, including race and ethnicity, that is, FACTS about a higher-than-average incidence of a particular behavior (including but not limited to product usage) - that's different than holding individuals accountable for the behavior of some others within the same group, others over which they have no control, whatever percentage those others might represent.

I considered the "Hero" and "Zero" juxtaposition to be mocking. Maybe in this case the police were guilty of incompetence (if so, I'm not aware of it) or maybe despite doing all they felt they could within the law and their power they still failed to find the girl. It's not in my nature to mock, regardless; but as to any expressed or implied finding of fault, I wouldn't be so quick to judge - and maybe even less so given that, bottom line, the girl's life was saved and her tormentor's ended.

It's clear that I don't feel the same as you about there being no need for a police force. I'm not anti-government. I'm anti-centralized government. I believe a police force is necessary, and I believe it should operate on a local level - not unlike a jury, a force of one's peers.

I do also believe, though, that police need to be held accountable when guilty of the same infringements of rights they are granted the power to protect; in fact, because of the power they wield, they need to be held to a higher standard. The horrible incidents reported this past week involving police brutality - re the nurse, the Downs syndrome boy, the cavity searches - were hard to stomach. There needs to be investigations in such matters; in at least one case it also involved a derelict judge. Cases have been brought against the police and deservedly so.

One of the problems I have with today's police force... or local environmental committee, for that matter!... is what is seeping down from above when there shouldn't be any hierarchy or such influence. Where the police are concerned, I'm sure a lot stems from 9-11 and the "war on terror." It's bad. The police are government servants of the people within their jurisdiction, not servants of one or another Washington acronym. I think it's an issue that citizens need to get resolved.

In any event, if your real beef with police stems from a political belief, namely, that a police force is a statist organization and all such "statist" organizations are inherently evil, I guess we'll always view things through a different lens.

~ John Muir

I too actually concur with mostly what you wrote;

true, we fundamentally, philosophically have a different view of police force.

But, history is on my side: police has NEVER been about 'keeping the peace.' Talk about propaganda.

They are what gives statists and monarchies alike, power. It's where their powerless verbal and written semantics alchemy's "rubber meets the road," in the physical plane.

Police are political police, always has been, always will be.

You're never going to resolve this issue, especially with a group that acts like collectivists who fundamentally believe they are the de facto "warrior class," worse, the 'legal' structure as it exists ALWAYS bolster this statist view.

If interested, further details on why I personally believe the fundamental notion of govt "police force" itself should be abolished once and for all (eventually), starting with 'beat cops'/aka. occupying standing army (they wear BDUs and abide by military hierarchy and rank. They ARE the military, especially now that they're all federalized anyway; you're not gonna reverse tyrants: no tyrants in history of humans have ever stopped themselves, from themselves), click here: http://www.dailypaul.com/300666#comment-3212097

'Reversing'/stripping them of powers, is not a feasibility, at least not until a large, massive critical mass of Americans simply have some unlikely overnight mass-catharses and decide that they will absolutely not stand for abuses/assault/beat-downs/kidnap/torture/rape/murder by them. Such awakening would need to happen from the citizenry, politicians, policy writers, rank & file and the command, as well.

So, until all that happens, reversing this current tyrannical statist trajectory is not a realistic reality, at least, there is NO chance in hell that they themselves will do it, voluntarily. It's like try telling the cartels to voluntarily give up their territory, let alone their business. And, they are a cartel: monopoly in initiation of force.

But the coming inevitable currency collapse, which is wholly numerically, mathematically impossible to stave off (at least under the current financial structure)? The 'police force' will be de facto abolished, anyway.

Now, of course, if after the ashes of the currency collapse, the sheeple still maintain the same mindset as before the collapse, and want to be ruled and lorded over, again? Of course, they will come back, exactly as it stands today: further proving my point.

As Ernie Hancock says: "The revolution is between the ears!"

Until the free humanity realize that they themselves are solely responsible for their security and should be able to have choices in commercial security & investigative services of their own, they will always feel the 'need' to be lorded over by a wholly separate caste of 'professionals,' IMHO.

"Yet" is the key word.

I have no doubt justice will be dis-served by the state.

Okay, time will tell, but in the meantime

can't we just be grateful the girl was saved, support the uncle in *his* gratitude for police efforts, and send some *positive* thoughts towards the Sheriff, who IS rightly presuming that no crime was committed until proven otherwise vs. the other way around?

excellent!!!

Perfect demonstration of the many reasons the second amendment was guaranteed in the Constitution! I'm glad to see this had a happy ending, unlike the past incidents where the people's right to bear arms was stripped and many people died as a result...Sandy Hook, "9/11 hijackings", Aurora, etc.
