WASHINGTON MOTHER SHOOTS HOME INTRUDER TO SAVE CHILDREN ON THANKSGIVING

by AWR HAWKINS 30 Nov 2014
On Thanksgiving Day an Edmonds, Washington, mother shot an alleged home invader to protect herself and her four sleeping children.
According to KIRO TV, the 22-year-old suspect began "pounding" on the mother's door at 3:15 a.m. Police say he pounded so loud for so long that the mother thought she must know the person. So she cracked the door open to see who it was and that it when the suspect pushed his way into the home.
When she realized she did not know him it was too late, he was already inside and fought back when she tried to push him out.
The father had grabbed the four children and huddled them for safety when a shot rang out--it was the sound of the mother shooting the home invader in the stomach.
Police arrived, treated the suspect on scene, then transported him to Seattle's Harborview Medical Center for surgery. He is "being investigated for burglary." Police said the woman faces no charges because she shot in self-defense.

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A teen is dead and his brother is charged after breaking into a home in southeast Mecklenburg County near Mint Hill on Tuesday, according to police.

The incident happened at a home in the 8600 block of Rolling Fields Road, off of Whispering Falls Ave. near Fairview Rd.

Police say they found and arrested 22-year-old Carlos Delcid on Tuesday night. His brother, 18-year-old Isai Robert Delcid, was shot by the resident's grandson, according to police.
“They heard some noises, saw an individual at the back of the residence trying to come into their house,” said Lt. Eric Brady of Charlotte Mecklenburg Police.

Brady said when officers first arrived on the scene they found a man, later identified as Isai Delcid, dead at the back of the home.

Police say the brothers were reportedly trying to break into the home when a 14-year-old, who was visiting his grandmother, shot Isai Delcid. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Carlos Delcid ran from the scene.

"Nobody likes to hear anything like this happened. A young fellow being involved... my grandson,” said George Wyant, the homeowner. Wyant said he was not home at the time of the shooting. He said a neighbor called him to tell him something happened. "You wouldn't think it would happen. Why would somebody come way up here, bust in a house? I don't know," Wyant said.

This isn't the first time his grandson has dealt with violence. WBTV learned the 14-year-old lost his father during a robbery-homicide in 2008.

Wyant said his son-in-law, Greg Hernandez, was shot to death at his business, Greg's Automotive on Independence Blvd. "He had the hood open in his car," Wyant said. "He was a mechanic. It was his garage. Somebody came in and shot him."

Wyant's grandson was eight years old at the time. Now, six years later, he was apparently trying to protect his grandmother and himself from intruders.

"They lost their father and now something like this has to happen."

The house on Rollings Field Road has been hit by criminals before. "Twice last month I was robbed. I guess they came back.” He said thieves stole items belonging to his wife.

Police have not said whether the cases are connected. Wyant said that his grandson did a good job, and that he's thankful he was there. "What would have happened if he wasn't there?"

Carlos Delcid was taken into custody at the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office and charged with first-degree burglary.

Police say they were initially given the identity of Isai Delcid as the brother charged in the case.

Guns Save Lives: Gunman Opens Fire on Pastor in Church, Pastor Pulls His Concealed Gun and Returns Fire
January 1, 2015 By Greg Campbell

When it comes to our rights as Americans, our founding principle is one of enlightenment thinking; this means that our rights are ours as human beings, given to us by God and (supposedly) guaranteed by government.

Image

So, it is unsurprising to see that some American pastors choose to arm themselves. While the left tries to foster a false narrative, that only “bad guys” have or use guns, many men of the cloth pack heat to keep the wolves away from their flock.

Case-in-point: when a deranged former employee of his church opened fire on Pastor Terry L. Howell Sr., the uninjured pastor wasted no time in returning fire.

According to the Orlando Sentinel:
The pastor of a Kissimmee church shot and critically wounded an employee Tuesday morning in a shootout after he notified the man he was being fired, according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.

The shooting shortly after 8 a.m. was witnessed by other church workers at Living Water Fellowship on Pleasant Hill Road, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain.

Benjamin Parangan Jr., a member of the maintenance crew for at least eight years, allegedly opened fire when he was told he no longer had a job, Lizasuain said.

One person was taken to a local hospital after a shooting this morning at Living Water Fellowship, a church on Pleasant Hill Road south of Kissimmee.

The bullets missed Pastor Terry L. Howell Sr., 61, who drew his own pistol and critically wounded Parangan, 47, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Parangan’s condition was so serious that paramedics wanted to send him by helicopter to Orlando Regional Medical Center’s trauma surgeons, but fog and heavy clouds forced them to transport him by ambulance to Osceola Regional Medical Center in Kissimmee, Lizasuain said. Parangan’s condition was upgraded to stable Tuesday evening.

Parangan was charged with aggravated assault with intent to kill, Lizasuain said. Additional charges are pending. Parangan is in custody and will be booked into the Osceola County Jail when he’s released from the hospitals, Lizasuain said.

Church workers who saw the shooting gave similar accounts to detectives. The shooting is being investigated as a case of self-defense, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Howell and Parangan both had concealed-weapon permits, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

“We are in full support of the ongoing Osceola County Sheriff’s Office investigation into the traumatic incident that occurred at our church this morning. We will continue to cooperate with the investigators in every way that we can,” Howell wrote in a statement released by the Sheriff’s Office.

“Until the investigation is complete, we will not be making any public statements. Thank you for understanding. The members of our church will continue to pray for all those involved in this morning’s incident. We would ask all who read this release to do the same.”


Time and time again, a “good guy with a gun” defends himself or others and the national media is conspicuously silent. The left maintains a narrative that guns create violence, but they seldom remember to note the many, many lives saved by guns each and every day in America.

Papa John's Pizza stands by employee who shot armed robber in self defense
Published January 15, 2015FoxNews.com

Papa John's Pizza is standing by a pizza delivery woman who opened fire Sunday on an armed robber in an act of self defense.

The pizza franchise told FoxNews.com Thursday the employee, who hasn't been named, will not be fired from the company.

The employee was making a delivery in Decatur, Ga., Sunday night when a man approached her vehicle, forcing her onto the ground at gunpoint, according to the DeKalb County Police Department. The woman, who had a gun in her pocket, was able to fire at the man while on the ground -- striking the alleged assailant, identified as 24-year-old Donquaz Stevenson, in the face.

Stevenson was later found in a neighbor's yard and arrested, according to police, who said the pizza delivery might have been a setup. Local media outlets reported that a second suspect carjacked the delivery woman's silver 2000 Honda Accord and remains on the run.

Stevenson was charged with armed robbery and was being treated for a gunshot wound at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.

The delivery woman's mother had told WSB-TV her daughter is worried she may lose her job because she was carrying a firearm at work for protection.

While Papa John's prohibits employees -- including delivery drivers -- from carrying firearms on the job, the pizza giant said Thursday the woman would not be let go from the company. She instead will be reassigned to another role, according to the company.

"The safety of Papa John's employees is a top priority for our company, " the company said in an email to FoxNews.com.

"Company policy prohibits employees from utilizing firearms in the performance of their duties.We plan no changes to our current policy, which is designed to protect customers and employees," the statement read. "Upon investigation and considering the specific facts of the situation, we have reassigned the employee to work in the store and are offering her counseling to help her recuperate from the incident."

Authorities said the woman, who was not arrested, acted out of fear for her life.

"She had no other choice. She must have been in fear for her life and she reacted," Capt. Stephen Fore with the DeKalb County Police Department told WSB-TV.

The crime happened a day before another Papa John's employee was attacked at gunpoint in Missouri.

Fox affiliate KTVI reports that a Papa John's pizza delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint around 10 p.m. Monday in St. Louis. Two men approached the driver with a gun and stole his wallet, while he was making a delivery, according to the The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. The suspects, who have not been caught, sped away in a white pick-up truck.

Anyone with information on the attempted robbery in Decatur, Ga., is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.

A Walmart Shopper Sees A Firearm Holstered Under A Man’s Shirt and Then Does The Unthinkable
BY JUSTEN CHARTERS (7 HOURS AGO) | CULTURE, EDUCATION, NATION, POLITICS
IJRSHAREEMAIL

When 62-year-old Clarence Daniels walked into a Florida Walmart on Tuesday, he couldn’t have suspected that he would barely make it past the door.

Walmart video surveillance shows Daniels going into the store, but before he can get much further than the entrance, someone comes up from behind and throws him to the ground. Believing he’s definitely apprehended a bad guy, the man, who Fox 13 identified as Michael Foster, then restrains Daniels even more.

As Daniels is being held down, a few shoppers who had assumed that Foster is perhaps a hero in the making decide to help him out with the pending citizen’s arrest. They also take away Daniel’s holstered firearm that was under his shirt. Then, Foster calls 911.

In a turn of events that Foster probably didn’t expect, the authorities arrive and it’s not Daniels they’re putting in the back of the squad car – it’s him.

It turns out Daniels had a concealed carry permit. In addition, during the scuffle witnesses said Daniels was yelling out that he had a license for the weapon.

Foster is being charged with one count of battery. He’s just lucky the gun didn’t discharge, because in situations like this, things could have gotten much worse.

Actually the gun was concealed. The "attacker" saw the gun when the guy got out of his car.

I think it said it was under his shirt. I am not worried about someone who has a HOLSTERED gun under a shirt. I am much more worried about a thug with his gun in his hand
