While it’s nice to share, one really should bring your own gun to a gunfight.

Very close, but two articles describe the same event, so the score is 2 / 0. The trifecta eludes us for another day.

    One DOT, a million to go.

    Goings, going, GONE!

    Where’s Claw with the Whiz Wheel?

    • Claw says:

      The Whiz Wheel is PFD (Present For Duty) this fine, snowy Friday morning, so let’s give it a couple of spins. The results are:

      LaVion Goings Jr. (DOT) 26 x 3 = 78

      Terrence C. Coulanges (DOT) 25 x 3 = 75

    I hope she got her gun back?

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      I think that might be a misprint (shocked face). From what I could tell on the video the perp ran one way and she crossed the street the other way. She appeared to still have her piece in her hand. I may be mistaken.

      Either way that dirtbag is DOT and will not be assaulting officers or attempting to rob folks on their way to work. Plus there is now an opening at the Jr. College and in the choir. One less dindu that was turning his life around. Yahoo article alluded to a survey of 2937 shootings in Chistan in ’18.

      The New Jersey story? Well, it’s Joirsey, whatdaya expect? Thin the herd.

    • MI Ranger says:

      Maybe she’ll get his gun too (free), unless it can be linked to other crimes, since the news seems to have reported it as hers… though I think Illinois keeps really good tabs on legally owned guns…not so much the other kind!

    Fire up the wheel.
    For all parties involved.
    (My apologies to Sister Mary Grace for improper grammar…)

    Ignore her “no” at your own risk, you will not be able to ignore her “bang, bang, bang”.

      Indeed it is indeed good news, CCO.

      Missing Wisconsin girl approached dog-walker to end 3-month mystery

      By: Nicholas Sakelaris
      Jan. 11 (UPI) — A 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who disappeared three months ago, when her parents were shot to death in their home, has been found alive — and authorities will give more details on the discovery Friday.

      Deputies announced late Thursday Jayme Closs had been found alive, but gave few details. They said they will reveal more information at an 11 a.m. EST news conference Friday, which will be streamed live.

      The girl had unkempt hair and wore oversized shoes Thursday when she approached a woman walking her dog Thursday in Gordon, Wis., about 70 miles from her home in Barron. She screamed that a man had killed her parents.

      The woman recognized the girl and immediately called police. Closs was offered food and water at a nearby house and she played with the family’s puppy, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.

      A short trial and a good hangin’ are in order.

      • CCO says:

        Yes, a nice, fair, thorough trial, with all the ‘i’s dotted and ‘t’s’ crossed is in order. I could probably scare up a piece of rope myself if the state of Wisconsin can’t.

      • rgr769 says:

        If we brought back public hangings, they would be a deterrent. They always deter the hanged murderer from further crimes.

  5. docduracoat says:

    That is very ballsy of the Chicago woman, drawing her gun on a drawn gun.
    Many criminals’ guns are unloaded, have the wrong ammo, or are non functional.
    But you cannot know that when they first point it at you.
    Good for her!

    LaAvion ?

    Really? Guy didn’t have a chance. Tough shit
