Self Defense, Again

Posted on December 22, 2017

Self Defense ZoneIn the last week and a half, we’ve tallied four CCW-related incidents (plus one offduty PO dispatching a carjacker) leaving one assuming room temperature and three others making due with an extra orifice or two. The latest happened earlier today:

The owner of a store in the East Garfield Park neighborhood shot a would-be robber Thursday morning on the West Side, according to police.

The 17-year-old boy tried to rob the store in the 200 block of North Kedzie at 10:46 a.m., according to Chicago Police.

The robbery was interrupted by the store owner, a 40-year-old man, who exchanged gunfire with the suspect, police said.

The teen was shot in the upper right shoulder and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition, police said. He is in police custody, and was previously arrested for armed robbery on Nov. 28.

Wait a second… was previously arrested for armed robbery on Nov. 28… Well done CCSA. Everyone knows you need at least four weeks to turn one’s life around, not just three.

Whatever the circumstances, we’ve introduced a new chart and corresponding metrics to keep track of the citizenry attempting to do us all a favor.
