    A friend of mine once made an observation...when a regular person is killed unexpectedly, they're made out to be an incredibly awesome individual. When a not-so-great person dies, they were "turning their life around" or "had lived with a lot of turmoil but still had promise". Except for capital punishment, you never hear of anyone dying and people just say..."Yeah, they pretty much got what was coming to them."

    Marquis Strange sounds like he was working really hard to get himself either in some serious trouble, or dead. It's unfortunate that he made so many poor decisions in life. I'd have shot him too, though.

    This is a very true statement. People always try to find the good in people. The fact of the matter is, if they were turning their life around, he would not have been trying to rob someone. Families never admit that their son/daughter/brother or sister is bad. They are always perfect in their eyes. There are risks in everything. This guy knew that the risks were either A) go to jail, or B) end up a corpse. He ended with option B. Maybe other criminals will learn from this.

    Pleasant Grove Robbery Goes Wrong

    Pleasant Grove police say a robbery victim fought back with deadly force against two would be robbers. Police say a man in the Ridgeway subdivision was checking on his mother's home around 9 p.m. Monday when two men jumped out the bushes with a gun. Police have identified the dead robbery suspect as 18-year-old Marquis Strange of Fairfield. Chief Waites tells FOX6 news that investigators believe they know the second suspect's identity and they're trying to find that person.
    How can they possibly report this as anything but positive. This article should've been called: "Pleasant Grove Man Fights Back" or "Pleasant Grove Armed Robbery Thwarted."

    That's like saying "United Flight 93 Terrorist Hijacking Goes Wrong." Liberal media at its finest.

  6. I never get tired of these stories. Citizens taking higher responsibility for their OWN safety!
