  If a loud shouting group of Black Lives Matter thugs were on your porch at 3am, Lois, I expect you would react by first getting your firearm in hand.

  Depends when the threat is exterior, as to a physical presence, on State Law, as to whether legitimate self defense or possible 'brandishing' may end up being
in order, and either way, they got off his porch, and stopped making noise.

  How was a homeowner to know that a obnoxious sounding mob, at your front door at a unseemly hour, was not a mob with bad intentions toward your family? Good on him.

  Better to be judged by 12, than carried by 6.

No, I would call the police.

Both of you are correct really and saying the same thing just Lois seems to hold tightly to her stubbornness. Calling the police is a given or should be. Making sure you and yours are protected by what ever tool you have to give you the advantage is important as well. Calling the police is more for after the mob leaves or after the actions taken in self defense. This man was protecting himself and his from potential danger and potential threat to life so I agree, good on this man. We don’t know what’s in another’s heart.

Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it

The protest was against Jaclie Lacy's failure to prosecute cops who kill.  They were protesting at the curb when two of their number went ond knocked on the front door of the residence.  Jakie Lacy's husband opened the door brandishing a weapon and threatened to shoot constitutants that were asking Jackie Lacy for a community meeting about incidents were cops killed black men.  They did not threaten anyone.

The incident was covered by the local papers in a fair way, and Ms. Lacy took a hit in the polls.  She is running for re-election as County Prosecuter.

The police were called, but no arrests were made because the protesters were on the sidewalk (public property) and it is not illegal or generally considered threatening for two people to stand on a porch while knocking at the door.

There was no mention if noise ordinances for a residentail area were violated.

Border Patrol Agent Stops Knife Attack in West Texas Sam’s Club


An off-duty Big Bend Sector Border Patrol agent stopped a knife attack in a West Texas Sam’s Club store on Saturday night after hearing a scuffle. The agent quickly took action and disarmed the man who allegedly attacked multiple people, including a small child.

Shortly before store closing on Saturday night, an off-duty Border Patrol agent assigned to the Big Bend Sector heard a commotion in a Midland Sam’s Club. The agent began to search for the source of the noise and came upon a man who was actively stabbing multiple people with a knife, according to Big Bend Sector Border Patrol officials.

The man, later identified as Jose Gomez, allegedly stabbed multiple people including a small child, officials stated. The Border Patrol agent drew his handgun and identified himself to the alleged attacker as a law enforcement officer. He ordered Gomez to drop the knife and held him until local law enforcement officers from the Midland Police Department arrived and took custody of the suspected attacker.

“The quick action of our Agent ended this shocking situation and clearly saved multiple lives,” Big Bend Sector Chief Patrol Agent Matthew Hudak said in a written statement. “I’m proud of our agents as they are valuable members of our communities. This is another example of how we protect America.”

Border Patrol agents provide additional law enforcement and first responder support to local communities. Frequently, Border Patrol agents are first on the scene of major car crashes in rural areas and routinely back up local law enforcement officers in dangerous situations.

“Without regard for his own safety, the agent’s willingness to intervene and end this dangerous situation allowed the injured to receive critical medical care in a timely manner,” Big Bend Sector officials stated.

Two of the people allegedly attacked by Gomez are listed in critical condition. The third victim is in stable condition, officials stated.

Gomez is being held by the Midland Police Department as the investigation unfolds. Officials did not disclose a motive for the alleged knife attack.

So are we all pleased that our Border Protection Officer was effective in stopping this criminal activity, and saving the targeted COSTCO shoppers, children.

Indeed, there was no shooting through doors or other stupid shit.  A trained officer with a gun used it appropriately, and no one got hurt.
