The Associated “with Terrorists” Press once again shows how out of touch with reality, sanity, the Constitution, and common sense they are with the following headline.
Vigilante’ gets revenge on metal shop thieves
Since when is it Vigilantism to protect your property? This isn’t England where they expect you to smile while you’re being robbed, or the criminal can sue you for a hate crime because you sneered at him while he takes what is yours. No, this is America where every thief should go to work with the assumption that they are going to get their head and chest perforated by a hail of .45 ACP rounds… Except I know that we have let liberals ruin things for the last 40 years. Yes, the GFW (Gun Fearing Wussies) have made us a place where Understaaaaanding and Acceeeeptance (yes that was a bleating sound.) of criminals are expected, where it’s not their fault they thought it would be fun to take what is not theirs, where the quick and easy replaces working and sacrificing to achieve a goal.
VIENNA, Maine – The owner of a machine shop where thieves stole $3,000 worth of scrap steel, iron and aluminum wasn’t going to let it happen again. After Saturday night’s theft, Joseph Lord loaded his shotgun and laid low, expecting the thieves to return. They came back on Tuesday, in broad daylight.
The nerve of these fools, they think they are so entitled to your property that since they did it on the weekend and nothing happened to them they can just waltz back on a Tuesday and get more?
When Lord saw their 2008 F-250 pickup truck, he shot out its tires and windshield and blasted its radiator, Kennebec County Sheriff Randall Liberty said.
The startled thieves took off on foot, but investigators quickly tracked down the truck’s operator, who will be charged with theft, Liberty said. Charges are pending against an accomplice, the sheriff said.
A new F-250, wow, the thievery business must be good if they can afford to run that.
Don’t forget one of the most important rules of life. When seconds count, the police are minutes away.
This Sheriff is unfortunately part of the problem.
Liberty said he discourages the use of guns to protect property. In this case, Lord told investigators he wanted to disable the vehicle so the criminals couldn’t escape.
“I can understand the frustration that Mr. Lord must have been experiencing,” Liberty said. But, he added, “We don’t want to see anyone get hurt over property.”
Why, Sheriff Liberty? If it doesn’t belong to you why should you not suffer injury when you steal it? That is called a deterrent. Mr. Lord protecting his property is his right. Who are you to say he cant?
