Thread: In "defence" of the "Bad Guys".

    In "defence" of the "Bad Guys".

    I can never quite twist my head or thinking around quite enough to generate "sympathetic feelings" for BGs "dispatched" by Citizens defending themselves.

    Case in point: While "poking around" the internet for "State News", I came across a story wherein four malcreants attempted a "home invasion" and retreated faster than they tried entry when the home owner dispatched one of them with gunfire. Two more were apprehended by the local Police and the fourth is still at large. (Last I heard.)

    The internet site where I got this from had a means by which one could make comments, forum style, if you were a member. The commentary went, for the most part: 1) Hooray for the homeowner! 2) One less dirtbag on the street! 3) Don't do the crime if you are not willing to accept the potential consequences. Pretty much in that vein.

    But (There's ALWAYS one!) one just HAD to post that the rest of the posters were a bunch of unfeeling cads and admonished us to remember that the deceased was someone's son (?????? I thought ALL males were! I may have missed something in Biology class.) and that the "poor thing" was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. (Well.... at least THAT much was certain!)

    Even better was the notation that this punk was on weekend leave from "reformatory". Nothing else to do on a Holiday Weekend, eh? Oh, he was just 17. (A 17 year old potential killer is STILL a potential killer! IMHO!)

    I wonder how much sympathy or tears would have been shed by this maladroit thinker if the foursome HAD succeeded in their evening's entertainment and had killed the homeowner and family? Or do we simply have one of those persons here that just HAS to have something or someone to "feel sorry for" regardless of surrounding circumstances?

    Either way, I simply cannot find a rationale for THAT sort of thinking, or the violations of logic trying to think that way perpetrates.

    Ya just gotta wonder sometimes!!!!!!!

  3. Unfortunately, our society is becoming so "tolerant" that some people feel obliged to tolerate all forms of behavior. We need to teach our kids how to take responsibility fot their own behavior so they don't grow up to be so tolerant as this guy.

  4. Well I feel bad. Its a shame I can't find out who the homeowner was so I could replace the bullets he used to defend himself. I wonder if the other 3 will attempt a robbery again. This dead dirtbag might be dead proof that crime will kill you.

    Wait... Grognard, that didn't come out quite the way I wanted it to.

    What I meant by my comment was, do you think the blog post you read in sympathy of the perps was written in jest or sarcasm.

    Not that you were being sarcastic. Just trying to head off a misunderstanding here!

    The law says the perp is responsible for his choice of victim - if the victim dies of heart attack it's still the perp's fault even if death was not intended. If the perp picks someone who will put him on the trailer and invite him to a dirt nap, then he has just failed Victim Selection 101 and deserves no sympathy.
    Of course his Momma will sing the blues about how he was a good boy who was just getting his life turned around, aspiring rapper/headbanger, scouted by the NBA, just got a job and girlfriend, loves puppies and kittens, generously helps everybody, sings in the church choir, and all that typical platitudinous tripe. Maybe I feel sorry for Momma, but the feral Uentermensch who finally got the Darwin Award he has been trying for got what he deserved. Good riddance.
    Better to perish in the struggle for freedom than live to see defeat. There ARE things to be feared more than death. The fyrd is a Constitutional imperative.

    I have an idea, get the BG a large headstone. Put all the "poor boy, changing his life, sang in choir, etc etc" on it. Right below it have engraved "He died breaking into someones house to steal their stuff and possible kill them" I wonder who will have sympathy for the little slug sucking pig now?

    I have to agree with Gunny that I have a very hard time with sympathy for anyone that does something illegal or stupid and has to pay the consequences for it. Many time I wonder what caused them to do what ever it is they did but no matter what they are rsponsible fot the final outcome. A man tries to climb the face of a sheer cliff with no safety lines (free climbing I think it is called) and falls to his death. Another tries to rob someone and get killed while trying to do it. And someone else decides to see how fast hos Porche will take the curves on a mountain road. I cannot say that I have sympathy for any one of them. I am sure they were all wonderful people at one time but made a fatal decision. Their decision and they paid the price.

    On a somewhat related note Chandler's Law became effective in SC on July 1, 2011. This law relates to the requirement for children riding ATV's under certain ages and having to wear helmets. Today an 8 year old died from being thrown from an ATV being driven by a 13 year old and neither one was wearing a helmet. Here I cannot help but have sympathy for all involved but I also have anger that this was allowed to happen. I am afraid that this one will get messy before it is over.
