Armed robbery suspect shot, killed in Charlotte
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police said a man who tried robbing three men at a Charlotte apartment complex was shot and killed by one of the victims.Two men burst into a residence, threatening the residents inside. Two of the residents ran, prompting the men to start shooting. One of the residents retrieved a firearm, came back, and shot both attackers. That's how it's done, folks. That's some serious grace under fire and competence under pressure. Two armed men, who have already shown a willing disregard for life, against one determined armed citizen - and the armed citizen comes out on top.
The Charlotte Observer reported that 21-year-old Omari Aiken died as a result of the alleged attempted robbery Friday night in the 7900 block of Antlers Lane.
Notice, mainstream media, that this story gets it right. The people being assaulted in their own homes are the victims. The people that came in and started shooting are not, even though they wound up losing. Losing the gunfight does not automatically make one a victim - certainly not when the loser started the fight in the first place.
We can certainly call the armed resident by their rightful title: Winner!
Dead Goblin Count: 437
That is all.
