Teen Defends His Mother

Nation & World | Louisiana Teen shoots would-be carjacker | Seattle Times Newspaper
METAIRIE, La. — A 17-year-old boy foiled an attempted carjacking, wresting a gun from a would-be robber and shooting him after the man grabbed his mother, authorities said.

[The goblin], wounded in the head and torso, will face armed-robbery charges once he is released from East Jefferson General Hospital, Col. John Fortunato, a spokesman with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office said Monday
He saw an opportunity and started fighting for the gun. It went off once. When he got the gun away from the goblin, he shot multiple times.

The police are all about cooperation. And in some respects I agree - it isn't worth getting shot over a car. But this goof-ball grabbed the kid's mother and was pulling her out of the car. That is a bit beyond the point where I start fighting back.

Anyway, all of the good guys are safe, and the bad guy is in the hospital waiting to go to jail.

Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
