By Andrew Greenstein
FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) – A south Fort Worth homeowner shot a teenager who was allegedly breaking into his vehicle.

“I guess he met the wrong homeowner last night,” says Fort Worth officer Tracy Carter of Braxton Criddle, 19.

It happened at around midnight last night outside a home on Hunting Green Drive.

The homeowner ended up shooting Criddle in the leg.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? […] The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!” —Alexander Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago (Chapter 1 “Arrest”)

    Purely in the interest of public safety, I should inspect the magazine release, clip, perform a borescope examination, forward assist lubrication and check the timing on the cyclic rate.

      There’s not enough time in the day to check my “cyclic rate.” It’s been deemed non-cyclic.

      • Tallywhagger says:

        Yeah, understood! At some point, no amount of polishing, maintenance or reconditioning will change the weather or the cyclic rate 🙂

    A trifecta of poor victim selection skilz. Good news to chase away the gloom of all this rain. Just like that ray of sunshine Ms Thang, oh she of the oh so very lucky Daisy Dukes. Sumting like that could cause a negligent discharge.

    And the Sig? Meh, I wouldn’t turn it down. Not bad for a former wagon manufacturer. At least, unlike Studebaker, they are still making something. “…Browning locked breech…” Heh heh…it ALWAYS goes back to the designs of his most Saintly JMB (Howitzer be his name).

    The P226 was the gun chosen by my department when we transitioned from the S&W wheel gun. I really liked that gun.

  5. When I started work in 1970, we had Colt Police positive .38 wheel guns along with S&W pencil barrel Mod 10 .38’s then to S&W bull barrel Mod 10 38’s and in 2001 went to S&W Mod 4046 .40’s and after I retired in 2017, they went to one of the S&W M&P models in .40. They stayed with S&W all these years. I saw a Mod 4046 on an online gun store with a used 4046 and the Brink’s emblem lasered on the slide.
