Man Saves Friends by Fighting Off 5 Attackers With His Firearm

Fortunately the good citizens of Milwaukee are heeding the advice of their Sheriff and arming up.  Sheriff David Clarke has long been a voice of reason within his county, made ever so evident in his public service ad he ran last year:

“I’m Sheriff David Clarke and I want to talk to you about something personal: Your safety. It’s no longer a spectator sport. I need you in the game. But are you ready? With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. … Consider taking a certified safety course in handling of firearms, so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?”

The entire city of Milwaukee can thank a 30 year old West Allis  man for “partnering up” with Sheriff Clarke and carrying his sidearm with him when he was out.

A group of at least 6 gang bangers had been terrorizing the streets, on a 3 day rampage, committing dozens of armed robberies and thefts.  That all came to an abrupt end early Monday morning when the five approached the armed citizen and his coworkers as they closed up the tavern they worked at and were leaving.

Upon leaving work the CCW permit holder and his friends were approached by the gang and were held at gunpoint in an attempt to rob them.  The CCW holder didn’t care to much for that notion and in response produced his sidearm and fired upon the thugs.  Shooting and killing one before the rest could flee like the cowards they are.

Thanks to the identification of the dead robber, a 15 year old with a long arrest record despite his age, his 5 cohorts were arrested shortly after.

Their crime spree and reign of terror over thanks to a law abiding citizen with a firearm.

Of course, now that we live in a hypersensitive, “but he was just a child”, blah blah blah world, the hero of this story was still brought into the station and detained for a while.  The DA has ordered for him to return and will conduct an investigation to determine whether the shooting was in self defense.

Not for not, if a group of friends and I are getting held up at gun point, self defense mode has been activated.  I’m not sure what the DA is thinking here but hopefully it’s just the song and dance of covering his own ass.  With luck it won’t put the hero citizen out too much.

Even the cops don’t seem to be too worried about it as Lt. Mark Stanmeyer of the Milwaukee PD said the shooting victim was a 15-year-old boy that he called “a known gang member” who had a lengthy arrest record including armed robbery and auto theft.

It was only a matter of time before the little gang banger grew up to be a big gang banger and killed some innocent person.

This all proves that once again, the law abiding are better armed with a gun in the hand than 911 on the line.

    Good shoot. Very nice kill !

    • Bullets First

      One less criminal to worry about.

        Saved the taxpayers a ton of money. If the doesn’t go Holder on us the patriot will still face civil suit and it’s my wish an honorable lawyer will step forward and either pro bono or very small fee.

  • BlueEyedAl

    He will not rob again and his buddies should go up the river for murder. When they get out, they will either have learned their lesson or be hardened criminals. If they are hardened criminals, lets hope they become victim of a good shoot.

  • Great Caesar 0bama

    I hope the thug wasn’t black or the racist blacks will be demanding that the hero be tried for murder and executed.

    • Bullets First

      I thought the same thing GCO, but since I couldn’t get anyone to confirm the color of those involved I am thinking that they were all the same race. Or at the very least the gangbanger was white while the armed citizen was black.

      Dollars to donuts that if the gangbanger was black and the shooter was white the race baiters like Al Sharpton et al would be flocking like pigs to the trough

  • IBUYRMP

    If Obama had sons would they look like this church choir of 6.But since their is no outrage I would assume it was black on black. That’s no news, it happens all the time in Democrap controlled Cities!

  • Michael

    Justice prevails. When a little boy plays big boy games, all bets are off.

  • You become a responsible adult when you carry a firearm with the intent of breaking the law. Screw the ACLU. And shame upon the DA for daring to waste taxpayer’s money on an investigation. Nuf said.

    • Legirons

      Why is the DA doing his job a bad thing? It clears the shooter and makes it harder to sue him. PS This NUFF said BS is childish and clearly it wasn’t enough said because you are wrong. We don’t live in an instant justice world.

      • May you never have to use “instant justice” to defend you and yours, for if you do, you may find the DA is not on your side, and even if you are right and just in your defensive actions, you may be prosecuted to the point of bankruptcy and/or prison time. The DA has the ability to refuse to prosecute with any alleged criminal act. Whether or not he or she chooses to prosecute may depend upon the political climate at the time and whether or not it is an election year.
        Armed and childish.

        • Legirons

          I have used that right and I have sat in front of the grand jury and I have received a no bill. That no bill provided me protection from a law suit. It diminishes any claims against the shooter and I support him doing it. May you never shoot anyone because clearly you do not have the maturity to handle carrying a weapon and the legal responsibilities that come with the 2nd amendment. Your childish wish that the prosecutor just make the decision does not prevent a latter prosecutor from coming along and indicting. Go learn something before you carry that flint lock.

          • Bullets First

            A few things legirons. If the Grand Jury opts not to let the charge go to a trial there is nothing stopping a later prosecutor…or the same prosecutor from trying again. Double Jeopardy only comes into effect at the trial.

            While bringing the charges to the grand jury again is unusual, when “new evidence” (like the prosecutor stating the same thing in a different manner) comes to light they can use that as an excuse to try again.

            Furthermore, a no bill from the grand jury does not protect you from a civil law suit. Even going to trial and being found not guilty doesn’t protect you from that unless you live in a state with some form of castle doctrine. Otherwise, even if you are completely justified in defending yourself some bottom feeding lawyer can still drag you through a civil trial on some cacamyme civil rights violation.

            All the while, you the self defensive shooter are paying for lawyers and taking time off of work to handle it.

            It is better that a DA use some common sense and have an eye out for the truth of the matter and use his discretion NOT to make you spend a boatload of cash defending yourself from a charge you are obviously innocent of in the first place.

          • Legirons

            Presenting a case to a grand jury does not incur costs to the shooter. Nothing is an absolute prevention of a civil suit as long as there are bottom feeding lawyers willing to advance a filing fee, but it sure makes them much less interested. There are few deep pockets in the self defense shooting crowd do go after. I disagree, I prefer that a grand jury from my community say officially that the shooting was justified.

          • To expound upon what Bullets First has said, I offer the trial of O.J. Simpson as examples of our justice system. His acquittal did nothing to prevent a subsequent civil suit.
            As for my take on firearms, police do not prevent crimes, they investigate them. A twenty minute response time is useless when confronted with deadly force or forced entry. Armed citizens prevent crimes. Of course, there should be a modicum of firearms training involved as well as a little maturity. Having a clean record and an up-to-date carry permit suggests responsibility and can go a long way toward influencing a DA or jury whether or not to prosecute or convict.
            It all boils down to the situation at hand: Sometimes there is no time to consider the ramifications of one’s actions. It is far better to have a firearm and not use it than to need one and not have it. I will gladly put myself in the hands of a jury if need be, but I refuse to allow some thug to carjack my ride, rape my wife or enter my home without my permission. I stand my ground.

          • Legirons

            Well that was a great little puff out your chicken chest and do a little pounding which had zero to do with the topic at hand. You’re comparing bullets to apples in your stupid OJ story. He was indicted, charged and then acquitted. Your apparent unfamiliarity with the criminal justice system tells me you should never give life advice to anyone carrying a firearm. No cops will not prevent a crime in progress being committed against you and they have no duty to do so. They do however arrest those who have committed crimes against you which in most normal folk’s minds shows as a prevented crime for the next attempted victim. But that is probably a fact pattern well above your ability to understand.

            I support the carriage of a firearm, I support the legitimate use of a firearm, something I have availed myself of in numerous situations over a 36 year career and I support the judicious shooting of those who need shot. I don’t however support the demonization of people following the law on either side of the event. You stand your ground, that is your right, that has nothing to do with the complaining you were doing about the presentation of this event to a grand jury.

          • Sometimes some folks display their true colors without outside help. Welcome to the club.

          • Legirons

            Welcome to your club? No thanks. Your club stinks of dementia and depends

          • It was clear several threads back that there wasn’t much being offered from your perspective; Insults and degradation seems unavoidable. Good bye.

          • Legirons

            I don’t suffer stupid people. Quit being stupid and pontificating about things you have zero understanding of. When you shoot someone and appear in front of a grand jury to explain your actions, get back with me. Until then you are a coach commando with zero to offer. Good riddance.

    Too bad he didn’t kill all of the fools but at least there’s one less running the streets.

  • Legirons

    The DA is just doing the same as he would do if it was a police shooting. It covers everyone and it’s good for the shooter in that he gets a no bill from the Grand Jury that says he did the right thing. Makes it harder for the choir boy family to sue.

  • colsooonscoorner

    Sounds like the DA is a woose. The guy and friends were held at gunpoint. What are you supposed to do be a victim, of not just robbery, but murder. No sympathy for these jerks.
