Armed Good Samaritan

  • A man traveling to California came to the rescue of a wounded state trooper who was struggling with the gunman who had shot him on an isolated stretch of Interstate 10, authorities said.

    The man, who was with his wife, stopped his car when he came upon a rollover accident and saw the struggle, according to Col. Frank Milstead, Arizona Department of Public Safety director.

    The trooper told the man he needed help, and the man returned to his car, got his gun and fired at the assailant when he refused to listen to orders to stop and back away, Milstead said.
Good thing an upstanding citizen with a gun was around to help.

Great story. Guns save lives when in the hands of good citizens. A blessing that this man had a gun and that he was johney on the spot.
Now if this good civilian had done this act of kindness in CA he would have been arrested by the liberal idiots of CA.

On the news, the Trooper Sgt. calls the Good Samaritan the "uninvolved individual" because that way he can't be screwed with by libtards...or other criminals.

They'll probably give the guy a medal! Here in Illinois, he'd be getting strung up by his balls...

That citizen traveling to California with a firearm will now be stopped and catching a felony for bringing a forbidden firearm into the state of California as soon as he leaves the state of Arizona where he can carry it with no questions asked.

I had to stop an armed carjacking with nothing but a pocket knife and indifference because I didn't want my vehicle confiscated for having a gun in it. Wouldn't do that again as the judge let both criminals walk.

"That citizen traveling to California with a firearm will now be stopped and catching a felony for bringing a forbidden firearm into the state of California as soon as he leaves the state of Arizona where he can carry it with no questions asked."

Actually, here's what the Calif. AG has to say about that :


HANDGUNS
California Penal Code section 25400 does not prevent a citizen of the United States over 18 years of age who is not lawfully prohibited from firearm possession, and who resides or is temporarily in California, from transporting by motor vehicle any pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of being concealed upon the person provided the firearm is unloaded and stored in a locked container.


The term "locked container" means a secure container which is fully enclosed and locked by a padlock, key lock, combination lock, or similar locking device. This includes the trunk of a motor vehicle, but does not include the utility or glove compartment. For more information, refer to California Penal Code Section 25610.

Unloaded, in the trunk. Still better than leaving it at home. But not much.

In 1966 a plain clothes officer was in a violent struggle in the Old Town area of Wells and North with a large guy with a DUKE hat. I knew that that guy was trying to get the officers gun. I jumped on his back and at that time more cops came on the scene and got him in cuffs. I didn't feel like a hero I just did what I knew was right.

(OT) Even in crime ridden Oaklawn no description of race of offender we can be sure he was not Amish:
The Oak Lawn branch of the Huntington Bank was robbed Friday morning, according to the FBI.

A male suspect, wearing black clothing and black sunglasses, robbed the bank at 10:50 a.m. at 10240 S. Cicero Ave. He is described as between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-11 feet tall, the FBI said.

He fled south on foot on Cicero Avenue.

Doing society a solid by coming to the aid of a Police Officer
(or anybody else so similarly afflicted) dictates that the
intervening party "shoot and scoot."

Do what's right and protect yourself by getting the fuck out of dodge.

Especially in nutty progressive utopias like California,
New York and Illinois.

Or don't get involved and keep rolling.

Be prepared to ONLY repel the boarders scampering aboard
your own ship.

Did POTUS call the AZ trooper and offer his condolences? Did Loretta Lynch mob contact AZ DPS and inquire about the trooper? Did the media reach into their archives and remind the viewer of the CPD officer who suffered a similar fate only to have two CC Court Services Deputies merely watch the incident instead of aiding a fellow peace officer? In both instances, after a collision, the offender is slamming the officer's head into the pavement. Is this the latest #blm response when stopped by police after a car accident?

May the Lord watch over our peace officers as they try to protect the community under adverse circumstances & biased media coverage. Retired .38 spl +P

As to the "uninvolved individual" I think that this was not the civilian assist shooter who answered the Troopers request for help, but was a second civilian in another car, who also stopped and then got on the Troopers police radio and reported the shootings, reported the location, reported the Trooper as being shot, asked for helicopter evacuation, asked for backup, and remained as a witness.

I know a lot of coppers from here travel to Wisconsin and have gotten "written" by fellow law enforcement agencies up there, myself included. I know that I would stop and assist if I encountered a situation like the one this officer was involved in. I think we should share this story with a few departments with our neighbors to the north.
