Is someone's life worth pocket money? Ask the thugs...

http://austin.ynn.com/content/top_stories/289147/gunmen-kill-1-man--wound-other-in-killeen

Here, two people were robbed as they were heading home. Three thugs robbed them, then just started shooting. Perhaps the thugs were upset at their passivity. Perhaps they were irritated that victim cooperation prevented the fulfillment of their real desires. Maybe they didn't like their ethnicity. They certainly thought the money they got was worth killing for.

I normally don't post these kind of messages, but thought this one would serve as an example of how the thug operates: THEY have all the power, THEY have all the answers, THEY have complete freedom of action. And they will brook no discussion about cooperation, real motivations, and relative worth of money and self-defense actions.

I do not blame the victims at all; they probably did all they could under the circumstances. But the thug wants more. Always more.

1. This is a prime example

 

of why I'm a staunch supporter of CC. It may not have saved his life, but at least he would have had a fighting chance.

3. we need to share stories like this with the folks sitting on the fence out in the real world.

 

hopefully it inspires at least a few of them to purchase a gun and acquire a CCW permit. We need to get people invested in this issue.

5. I'm shocked no-one has yet complained about your use of the word "thug".

 

Seing as it's a known derogatory code-word for certain minorities....
