Wednesday morning feel good stories

| May 9, 2018

From Horry County, South Carolina;

The woman told Horry County police that she, a man and her baby were in the bedroom of the home Sunday night when an intruder broke in through a locked door.

She said when the man told the intruder to get out of the house, the intruder began to assault the man. The woman said she grabbed a samurai sword and stabbed the intruder in the arm.

The woman said the intruder left the home, so she and the man closed the bedroom door and pushed a dresser in front of it. She said the intruder returned, armed with a knife, and pushed his way into the room, knocking the dresser over.

The intruder then stabbed the man multiple times “all over his body and face” while the woman hid in a closet with her baby, the police report said.

The man who had been stabbed by the intruder jumped out a bathroom window to get help, the report said.

Officers located the intruder and held him at gunpoint until he could be taken into custody, police said.

Both injured men were taken to transported to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center, the police report said.

From Gainesville, Florida;

Officers say the victim was coming home from a movie theater with family members, and while they were parked Arkeem Bennett approached them with a handgun in an attempt to rob them.

The victim who holds a concealed carry permit took out his gun and shot at Arkeem in self defense, one of the bullets struck Arkeem but he was able to get away in his car with another person driving.

The victim informed 911 about the incident, and they later found Bennett dead.

From Orlando, Florida;

A man in his 60s was at the Wells Fargo location at 4549 Hoffner Avenue, near Conway Road, when a man in his 20s tried to rob him at gunpoint, spokeswoman Jane Watrel said. The older man had a gun, for which he has a concealed weapons permit, and exchanged shots with the suspect, Watrel said.

He drove away and called 911, then returned to the scene, Watrel said.

The suspect was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center in serious condition and later was pronounced dead.

    Good shootin’ on the Florida victims, two for two.

    As for that SC incident (that’s all I can think of to call it), that’s all kinds of messed up.
    Ya stab the perp once with a sword (probably a cheap wall hanger), ya couldn’t have done it again? And when the perp returned, ya couldn’t have used the sword again? Done the knife equivalent of The Taxpayer Savings Shot (Stab)?

    The hell?! A SWORD? And the guy didn’t disembowel the miscreant?!

    “The victim who holds a concealed carry permit took out his gun and shot at Arkeem in self defense, one of the bullets struck Arkeem but he was able to get away in his car with another person driving.”

    Sister Mary Grace wants to know where the reporter who wrote this appalling piece of badly constructed hamburger sentence went to school, so that she can give the English teacher 30 thumps with the No. 15 yellow pencil.

    The victim(,) who holds a concealed carry permit(<) took out his gun and shot at Arkeem in self defense(.) (O)ne of the bullets struck Arkeem but he was able to get away in his car with another person driving.

    Sister Mary Grace suggests that the reporter stop relying on spellcheck's ineffable presence and consult the Chicago Manual of Style, available now online. You do not separate two sentences with a comma, you idiot. You use a period, and start a new sentence.

    Ernest Hemingway was the master of the short sentence. He was also the master of the extended multipage sentence. See 'Green Hills of Africa' for a fine example of comprehensive writing skills by a fine writer.
    (Sister Mary Grace does not address his idiotic naivete about politics. That will come later.)

    Arkeem Bennett, DOT.

    Claw?

    At the Poly Prep School for boys we were taught that simpler sentences are always better.
    What I take away from the first story is that Samurai swords are not the most effective weapons.
    Especially when wielded by untrained baby mommas.
    Dressers pushed against doors are not effective barricades.
    A revolver would be a much better choice for self defense in untrained hands.
    The original point and click device!

    “…don’t be sad, ’cause two out of three ain’t bad.”

      And I doubt either of the two deceased perps will be seeing Paradise . . . by the Dashboard Light or otherwise. (smile)

      Good to see ya here again, clams.

    I’m wondering why that lady was hiding in a closet when she had a samurai sword? She had already used it to drive off the perp.
