Councilwoman fires gun during melee in Walmart parking lot, Mississippi video shows

A 22-second video circulating on social media over the weekend showed a woman shooting a gun in the parking lot of a local Walmart as she yelled “you’re going to jail.”

Police say it was a town councilwoman in Mississippi who fired the weapon.

Pauline Monley was charged with domestic violence, simple assault and discharging a firearm within city limits after the incident at a Walmart in McComb, Mississippi, the Clarion Ledger reported. Monley is on the town council in Summit — just north of McComb, according to the town’s website.

She reportedly turned herself in Monday.

Suspect in attempted carjacking dies after being shot by motorist, hit by vehicle in Compton

by: Tony Kurzweil, Jennifer Gould
A man suspected in a carjacking attempt in Compton died after being shot by the intended victim and then run over by at least one vehicle Sunday night, authorities said.

Deputies responded to the intersection of Compton Boulevard and Santa Fe Avenue shortly after 8:30 p.m. when someone reported hearing gunshots in the area.

A man was found lying in the intersection and pronounced dead at the scene, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department stated in a news release.

The unidentified man had at least one gunshot wound and had apparently been struck by at least one vehicle, according to the release.

Investigators believe the man, who was armed with a handgun, had tried to carjack a vehicle that was stopped for a red light when he was shot by the motorist.

The shooter stayed at the scene and was talking to investigators, Sheriff’s Department Lt. Alfred said.

    A real “Mississippi Queen” showing her entitlement, an oxygen thief that is stealing no more, and the knowledge that the Soviet Cosmonauts were protected from Marvin the Martian. What a morning!

    Now if you could just fix the linky to the Self Defense Gun before a certain someone starts bitching about it. (That would be Tox, or possibly one of the other usual suspects, 26L ect)

      Moi? Bitch? I don’t bitch (usually).
      I just consider myself a TAH Unofficial Editor At (extra) Large, without portfolio.
      I point out the errors in the posts that the Staff makes as they put their hard(ly) worked efforts on line for the rest of us to read and enjoy.

      Consider me as Brother Toxic, of the same church order as Sister Mary, She of the Wooden Ruler, Used to Correct Errant Writers and Editors.

        I’ve been thinking of this, as I listen to the idiots on the Squawk Box continue to declare “President-Elect Biden”………..

        So, until President Trump is declared President for his second term, and is sworn into office, I am now………..

        “President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman”

        (more people need to do this. “President Elect” is a meaningless term, used by the DildoCrats and RINOs to attempt to give legitimacy to Biden’s theft of the election)

        ‘scuse me Brother Tox, misquote of terminology there. Let me be the FIRST to beg forgiveness on my slippy of the lippy.

        I believe, looking back, the term that our Aeronautically Designated Squiddly Swabbie used was…and I quote…”Picky Picky”.

        ps…shhhh I sent him an email at 0GOD15 hours this AM on the non-working linky. He has yet to reply to that either. I attribute that to (a) him chasing that trophy wife of his around; (b) emptying his son’s liquor cabinet (he IS Navy you know?); (c) being stressed out over the upcoming (GO) Army whipping that (BEAT) Navy is going to administer; (d) All of the above.

          Not sure what you mean by “linkie no workie”. I got up late this AM, and had to rush to work before perusing my usual web sites for news & info.
          So by the time I get to work, wake up the computer, and read this page, the link worked fine.

          And as for “picky, picky”, meh, call it what you want. Just don’t call me late for dinner, cigars, or whiskey/whisky.
          My children called me “the Grammar Nazi”, because I would pick apart their homework assignments until they got it right……MY right. “But the teacher said…..” didn’t cut it for me. Like the drill Sergeant, “You do pushups until I’M tired”.
          Usually, I’m an easygoing guy. Usually. But that fuse is getting shorter and shorter.

          Sorry for the ramble & the OT. But this is one of the few sites where I can get away with this type of “ranting”, and feel at home. (I AM at home, aren’t I?)

          Oh, and to echo GB, “GABN!!”
          Win, lose or draw (no battle plan survives after the first five minute contact with the enemy), I look forward to the A/N game next Saturday. One of the few football games I feel good about watching without all the kneeling & politics attached.

    So what I got out of that was that shooting someone in the back as they run away is ok cuz it is self defense.

    “you are going to jail”…ummmh no Ma’am you are! I guess City Council Woman are not required to know the law!

  4. Was the city council person a dem or rep????

      The Marakov’s designers produced well-done and scaled-up derivative of the Walther PP. The Walther PP predates the Marakov by over 20 years.

    • David says:

      Only thing iffy on the Mak is the 9×18 cartridge, it’s not much more than a .380 in a wolf’s costume. At least you can buy ammo and occasionally components, I remember cutting 9×19 cases a silly millimeter shorter and having to cast the bullets just to keep shooting it.

  6. Friend says:

    Compton, CA! Biggest shithole in California. I wouldn’t drive thru the place with a SWAT escort in a bullet proof vehicle.
    Hopefully the car wasn’t damaged running over the POS.

  7. UpNorth says:

    Meanwhile, Minnemogadishu, Minnesota has experienced a 537% increase in car jackings since November of 2019.
    Go ahead, defund the police.
