Dan Brannan
ALTON – Alton Police Chief Jarrett Ford this afternoon released more information about the shooting at Rent-A-Center Tuesday morning.

“At 10:12 a.m. on June 6, 2023, the Alton Police Department received a 911 call from a female indicating she had just been shot. A separate 911 call was also received from an employee of Rent-A-Center, 2831 Homer Adams Parkway, Alton, Illinois, indicating a shooting had just taken place inside the business.

“Alton Police Officers arrived at the business as well as to the female who had been shot. The female was in a vehicle and located in close proximity to Rent-A-Center. Initial investigation revealed that the female who was shot had come to the business to confront a relative who is employed by Rent-A-Center, despite an active order of protection prohibiting contact with her relative and from being at Rent-A-Center.

Part of the charm here is I’ve gotten to see lot of really badly designed sites. Now I’ve seen another one and you can too. Anyway, an armed co-worker stepped up and halted the ensuing assault, not a piece of paper.

Crowley couple fights off attempted kidnapping suspect

Story by Lili Zheng
A man is in custody after Tarrant County authorities say he tried to kidnap a child and led deputies on a pursuit.

Steven Bayse, 62, faces charges of kidnapping, evading arrest with a vehicle, and aggravated assault against a public servant. Carlos Ortiz of Crowley said his two-year-old daughter is the child Bayse allegedly tried to kidnap on Monday evening.

Ortiz said he was returning home Monday evening with his wife and child from the Walmart near their home on Lansman Drive when he noticed a blue truck following them. At first, Ortiz said he didn’t think much of it and thought it could potentially be a neighbor they didn’t recognize.

“That’s when we were like, ‘Okay. [The car] is turning with us.’ We start pulling in our driveway. The truck parked across the street,” Ortiz said.

His wife took the groceries inside the house, while their daughter began playing in the flower bed outside their house. Ortiz spoke with the suspect, who asked about Ortiz’s truck and whether he was interested in selling it.

Ortiz recalled the suspect and then asked about his daughter.
“I didn’t think much of it, because he’s probably just trying to say hi. Out of nowhere, he just scoops her up and starts heading back to his truck,” Ortiz said.

He was able to get a hold of the suspect. Ortiz’s wife then came running outside with a knife, he said.

Mama bears don’t take prisoners- run or bleed. Thanks again for the links, Gun Bunny.

That 600 Nitro….now THERE is a hand cannon that needs wheels and a lanyard.

Kinda makes ya proud, don’t it! Gonna have a full battery laid in along that North Wall at the rate that our Beloved AW1Ed is showing how much he lubs his Gun Bunny and wants him to be happy. And I’m wise enough to know which half of that to believe.

It’s all relative when you go looking for trouble and you find it.

You’re right, ‘Ed…too bad Mama Bear didn’t get in a little slice and dice. Fight back!!


I was hoping you weren’t out of contact, like the last time our beloved squid was posting gunp0rn of real guns.

That’s why it needs wheels, for recoil control and stability.
Gun Bunny would know more about that.


That is just stupid.

Once again, we see a perp who got hurt trying to cry “I’m a victim”.

At two y.o., I hope the Ortiz child wasn’t traumatized.
And good on the parents for paying full attention to their inner sirens.

A deaf, dumb, and blind child sure plays a mean meme ball.


Oh jolly good show.


As Kipling said:
She is wedded to convictions –
in default of grosser ties;
Her contentions are her children,
Heaven help him who denies! –
He will meet no suave discussion,
but the instant, white-hot, wild,
Wakened female of the species warring
as for spouse and child.

I can only speculate why Bayes remains among the living (divided effort between retrieving child and holding knife methinks).

“The Female of the Species”
Awesome poem (as are all Kipling poems)
Whatever happened between then (1911) and now?
You’d think that today’s females would gather en masse to rebuff the illegal aliens at the south border that clearly threaten their families (physically, medically, and financially).

Whatever happened between then (1911) and now?”

Glocks! *sigh* Naval Aviation Documentaries? *groan* Hitlery Rod Ham? *skruntly evil* Need more? All kinds of bad sh^t has happened since the gift from HMS JMB (HBHN) of 1911.


That first article must have been written by someone getting paid by the word.


Having recently started a new job with an early-20-summtin coworker, I am somewhat dismayed at the economic prospects for our future, and suspect that the word-salad chaos y’all are reporting is from one of the coworker’s peers.
