Gun carrying man ends stabbing spree at Salt Lake grocery st
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A citizen with a gun stopped a knife wielding man as he began stabbing people Thursday evening at the downtown Salt Lake City Smith's store.

Police say the suspect purchased a knife inside the store and then turned it into a weapon. Smith's employee Dorothy Espinoza says, "He pulled it out and stood outside the Smiths in the foyer. And just started stabbing people and yelling you killed my people. You killed my people."

Espinoza says, the knife wielding man seriously injured two people. "There is blood all over. One got stabbed in the stomach and got stabbed in the head and held his hands and got stabbed all over the arms."

Then, before the suspect could find another victim - a citizen with a gun stopped the madness. "A guy pulled gun on him and told him to drop his weapon or he would shoot him. So, he dropped his weapon and the people from Smith's grabbed him."

By the time officers arrived the suspect had been subdued by employees and shoppers. Police had high praise for gun carrying man who ended the hysteria. Lt. Brian Purvis said, "This was a volatile situation that could have gotten worse. We can only assume from what we saw it could have gotten worse. He was definitely in the right place at the right time."

Dozens of other shoppers, who too could have become victims, are also thankful for the gun carrying man. And many, like Danylle Julian, are still in shock from the experience. "Scary actually. Really scary. Five minutes before I walk out to my car. It could have been me."

Here's a couple more:

Quote

Denard Joe was stopped in his car at an intersection when a man wearing a red bandana tapped on the window and pointed a gun at him. Big mistake. Joe, a concealed-carry permit holder, drew a handgun and opened fire through the window, striking his assailant twice in the chest. The carjacker, who had just been released from state prison last November, ran a short distance and then died. (The Ledger, Lakeland, Fla., 04/06/11)

***********
Home alone in his two-story house, a man heard a knock at his door. Glancing out the window, he saw three men sneak around to the back sliding door. The sound of breaking glass made it clear that the men were entering the house. The homeowner went upstairs, locked himself in a bedroom and got his gun. At least one of the burglars approached the bedroom door and was about to enter when the resident opened fire, killing him. The other burglars fled, one of whom was nabbed by a responding officer’s police dog. (The News Tribune, Tacoma, Wash., 04/05/11)


Probably different outcomes here in Australia.

No scotto. I think I've read of bad guys with guns even here in our lucky country.

In the land of "The Fair Go" only the criminals are protected by law so that their victims can't effectively resist.

Bravo Australia.

How many times have you had to do this? Your time in the armed services doesn't count.

Not me you need to think of but the next victim of someone intent or rape or murder.
Call '000' and lay back and think of .....

What would you do to protect yourself or a loved one?

Fight or run?

No, it's a simple question.
The police can't protect you most of the time, so what would you do, or, if you're coy, what would you advise others to do if attacked.
Perhaps you're a champion runner but many aren't and couldn't run away.

Let us be constructive, your ideas or solutions could save someone's life.

Loveridge cousin accused of murder

July 24, 2012
Vincent Morello, Police Reporter

Corey Loveridge and a mate murdered a 17-year-old boy in a random street attack hours after he said he wanted "to stab and kill someone tonight", court documents allege.

Loveridge, 18, and his 17-year-old mate repeatedly kicked and stabbed the boy until he fell to the ground in a Sydney street, the documents say.

The two teenagers allegedly committed the murder on the same night they allegedly bashed an 87-year-old woman in a violent home invasion.......
......Less than two hours earlier, police say Elena Parrelli, 87, awoke to find the pair at the rear of her house before she was beaten so badly she could not walk..

During her attack, she activated her "VitalCall" necklace, which recorded yelling and threats of "We'll f***ing kill you" and "Where's the money, motherf****r?"

Indeed.... meaning, of course that all 17 years olds and all 87 year olds should be armed at all times.
