From Clinton County, New Jersey;

Cody J. Englert, 30, forced entry into a home at about 1:50 a.m. Wednesday at 925 4th St. in Pine Creek Township, Clinton County. He was shot by a resident of the home and died at the scene. Police said in a release that the resident who shot Englert is cooperating with investigators.

A story of frontier justice from South Africa when a prisoner escaped from jail and ended up in the hands of vigilantes;

A notorious armed robber and escaped prisoner was allegedly “executed” by community members at Nodwengu, in Ndewedwe, north of Durban, on Thursday.

The man, who was among eight prisoners who escaped from the Verulam police cells recently, was a known armed robber who plundered the local community.

Of the eight who escaped, four were recaptured.

Superintendent Vasie Naidu said the man’s body had been found in dense bush.

“A sack had been tied over his head. A single shot from point blank range went right through his head.”

Naidu said the man was known to be an armed robber and wreaked havoc among members of the community who, it seemed, took revenge.

    Oh! Someone in New Joisey shot a bad guy and isn’t in jail for it. Good.

    The N.C. shooting must have been either small caliber of off-center. Too bad.

  7. Docduracoat says:

    Good on James Noah, aged 79, who home carries in North Carolina
    I always thought home carry was a little paranoid and just keep a gun in a drawer downstairs and another upstairs
    I am going to rethink that plan
