Christmas Eve feel good story

| December 26, 2012

Folks in Atlanta are marginally safer today according to a link sent to us by Bubblehead Ray from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution which reports that an intended victim there thwarted two men who tried to rob him;

Police were alerted to the shooting about 10:30 p.m. Monday when a deceased male was dropped off by a private citizen at Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said.

“At the same time, Zone 6 officers responded to an attempted robbery at 20 Jackson St.,” Jones said in an e-mail.

“The investigation revealed that the deceased male and another male attempted to rob a subject,” Jones said. “The intended victim pulled his own weapon to defend himself and shot one of the would-be robbers.”

So, the guy who took the poor soul who was ventilated by the not-so-victim to the hospital was also arrested. Two down in Atlanta.

    So the other person is being arrested for felony murder because of his part in the crime?

    @6 and 7: That’s only for the criminals who commit a murder, isn’t it?

    Ok libtards, explain how honest, law abiding, citizens with weapons are a bad thing? Here we have an a$$hat who will never commit another crime, one who won’t commit one for a while and there are a bunch of kids alive and well in Kalifornia because a good man with a gun saved them. Yep…them evil guns and all us fanatical gun rights loonies! The day it happens to you, I hope no one is around to save your dumb a$$es. We wouldn’t want to hurt your sensitive feelings by exposing you to those awful, evil guns.

    @8. It depends on state law. The rule would apply to all bad guns involved with a particular crime in which one of the bad guys is killed. The decedent’s accomplice can be tried for murder of the decedent! Cool beans, huh?

    The felony murder rule applies anytime someone dies during the commission of a felony. Thus, if one bad guy dies during an armed robbery, the second bad guy can be, and usually is, charged with felony murder. The purpose is to deter violent felonies which are, of course, inherently dangerous. I like to think of it as a bonus for the good guy who shot bad guy #1.
