The recent unrest in Ferguson, Missouri illustrates a shocking reality: evidently, to the left, no person of color is supposed to be accountable for their behavior. Michael Brown was a thug and a criminal and despite the evidence showing that Brown attacked a police officer, he has been hailed as some sort of civil rights hero by those looking to riot and loot in his memory.
Unbelievably, White’s family is not upset with the armed robber who put a gun to the store owner’s head; they’re upset with the concealed carrier who shot their barbaric relative.
According to Fox 10:
The Good Samaritan, who we are not identifying, told FOX10 News he was shopping at the Family Dollar on Stanton road when he noticed a masked gunman leading one of the employees to the front of the store. “He had the gun to his head. He had him on his knees,” said the man. “I drew my gun on him and I said ‘Hey don’t move.’ At that point he swung around and before he had a chance to aim the gun at me, I fired. I didn’t want to shoot him.”
White was rushed to the hospital where he was treated for his wounds. The family of Adric White, however, is upset that he was shot “unnecessarily.”
White’s sister told Fox 10:
“If his (the customer) life was not in danger, if no one had a gun up to him, if no one pointed a gun at him – what gives him the right to think that it’s okay to just shoot someone? You should have just left the store and went wherever you had to go in your car or whatever.”
Sure- why not? A man is about to possibly be executed by an armed robber and you’re in a position to stop him- why not continue on with your errands?
That is not how society works. While we cannot ask citizens to go above and beyond and step-in to shoot armed robbers, we must be willing to praise those who confront an armed man to help preserve innocent lives.
This Good Samaritan is a hero and for White’s family to attack the character of this man when their thuggish relative was to blame for his own gunshot wounds is beyond reprehensible.
At least they didn’t call Al Sharpton…yet. Of course, he was a good boy and didn’t deserve to be shot just because he had a guy on his knees and holding a gun to his head. The Good Guy should have just went wherever to do whatever.
This is also how society works, at least these days. Lately people criminalize the good guy, whether civilian or police officer, and sanctify the thief. Nobody takes responsibility for bad behavior and they all expect special treatment. They’re lucky he’s alive.
Obviously these thieves aren’t aware that concealed carry is more widespread than ever (thank you O) and more ordinary citizens are armed. When more and more good people arm themselves, there will be less and less bad guys. Wise up, get a job, so you don’t have to steal, or threaten to kill. Next time you could be DRT.
