Self Defense, Again

Posted on November 30, 2016

Self Defense ZoneWhile police shootings grab all the headlines and gangbangers continue to ventilate one another with reckless abandon, average joes go mostly unnoticed when they protect their lives and property:

“Three men have been charged after two of them were shot by the employee of the store they tried to rob Sunday night in West Rogers Park, according to Chicago Police.

Stephon Kinchen, 18; Anthony Simpkins-McDonald, 21; and Neil Thomas, 24, each face two felony counts of attempted robbery armed with a firearm, police said.

About 9:45 p.m., they tried to hold up the store in the 7400 block of North Western when a male employee with a valid concealed carry license opened fire, hitting two of them before they ran away, police said. They were arrested nearby.

Thomas shot in the shoulder and treated at Illinois Masonic Medical Center, and Kinchen was taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital with a graze wound to the forearm. Their conditions were stabilized, police said. Simpkins-McDonald was not injured. “

Given Cook County’s lenient justice system, we’re confident another average Joe or fellow jagoff will take a shot at this trio in < 2 years.
