About that guy who was shot by a deputy in Eaton County, Michigan
The deputy did her job. She stopped him.
One of the minor details that is left out of the story is the location of "grocery store" where the lunatic started his rampage.
The grocery store belongs to a local chain of convenience stores called "Quality Dairy".
Panning back a little farther
So if a 77 year-old is attacked with a knife right across the street from the Headquarters of most professional policing organization in Michigan and they were not able to interrupt the attack, then how can any thinking person deny that ordinary citizens (who are much farther away from the Michigan State Police Headquarters) need the means to protect themselves?
It is not that I am disparaging the Michigan State Police. How long would it take you, from where you are reading this blog, to jump in your vehicle...drive to the end of your driveway...exit your vehicle and then run 60 feet? Two minutes? A minute? 30 seconds?
Did the cop in the video have thirty seconds? I don't think the clerk did either.
