Police said an armed man attempted to rob a cab driver at the Citgo Gas Station on McNichols Street around 5 a.m.The would-be robber died at a local hospital.
The cab driver pulled out a gun and fired several rounds, striking the thief three times, said police.
The police arrested the cab driver. Not that it is unexpected. When I was an NRA safety instructor, we used to say that if you ever defended yourself, you would probably be arrested. Cops aren't supposed to figure out if you are guilty or not. That is for the DA to decide (do they bring the case?) or the courts (are you guilty?). "Every bullet comes with a lawyer attached."
Still it seems pretty straight forward, at least to me.
Self-defense is a human right.
