At about 1:15 a.m., Osayande Johnson, of Bridgeport, was walking with a friend on Humphrey Street, near the Interstate 91 overpass by State Street when the gun man approached them, said Sgt. John Velleca.Violent criminals are not going to turn non-violent in reaction to your pacifism. Time and again I read stories about people who cooperate and are still shot.
The robber snatched the victim's chain and then shot him.
"It doesn't appear that he resisted," Velleca said.
Self-defense is a human right. Being a sheep is not the highest aspiration you can hope for, and is no guarantee the wolves won't come to call.
