      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

Did an armed citizen save multiple lives?

144 posts in this topic

The reports are preliminary and confused but there is a report that an armed CC permit holder engaged and wounded two people that had just ambushed and executed two police officers in a fast food place and a third woman at walmart but were confronted and wounded by an armed citizen before they could continue their rampage.

 

Anyone hear more about the Las vegas shooting today?

One of the officers was able to fire back during the ambush, Gillespie said. The assailants then took the officers' ammunition and reportedly ran inside the Wal-Mart on Nellis Boulevard between Charleston Boulevard and Stewart Avenue. A number of responding officers followed the suspects into the store, McMahill said.

There, the assailants shot and killed at least one person inside the front door of the store. They exchanged gunfire with police inside the store before the female suspect shot the male suspect and then killed herself.

McMahill described the assailants' lives ending an an "apparent suicide pact."

Once again, hope springs eternal with Jack, but in the end its just fantasy.

So, it looks like the answer to the question posed by Hypocrisy Jack© in the OP is - "No".

But, you gotta give Hypocrisy Jack© points for consistency.

 

He often starts threads with a disingenuous premise, or an outright lie, nestled in some sort of question or vague language. That way he can weasel out of it when someone points out the trolling effort.

 

The only thing this thread is missing is an an attempt to blame Obama.

It sounds like the typical early reporting of "facts" that are pure speculation and rumor in the wake of a sensational event. Nothing I've read so far even makes a hint at that happening. So until something does come out about it, I will discount it as the usual media rushing a story to press with no fucking idea what actually occurred. They have to say something to fill up air time and saying "We have no idea what happened yet, the situation is too fluid and chaotic" doesn't sell ads.

 

That never happens, right?

The duo then left the restaurant and walked over to a nearby Walmart, where Jared Miller fired a shot into the air and told people to get out, shouting that it was “a revolution,” McMahill said.

Bystander Joseph Robert Wilcox, 31, who was carrying a concealed weapon inside the store, spotted Jared Miller and told a friend he would confront him, according to authorities. As he neared Jared, he was shot in the ribs by Amanda and later died, McMahill said.

Gillespie called the death “completely senseless.”

Based on the Fox report, it sounds nmore like this guy felt he was up to the job of playing Wyatt Earp and paid a hefty price. Shitty that he died. But he did choose to engage with armed maniacs.

..and bought some amount of time for all the others, not Wyatt Earp, selfless action. These reports do not yet indicate whether he drew his weapon or not or whether he fired or not. Did his action cause the assailants to go to Plan B?

Yes, but it's so much fun for the assholes to mock someone who takes action in the face of adversity. He paid a price but it was apparently enough to make the idiots kill themselves.

Well, the OP suggests he not only drew his weapon, but actively engaged the pair - and even wounded them both.

Amazing how we have been told a law-abiding citizen with a CCW will end this kind of stuff. But, that may not always be the case.

 

Do you think Wilcox would have "engaged" with the pair if he didn't have a weapon? I am willing to bet he felt empowered and truly believed he could make a difference. That is selfless.

 

But, he turned out to be wrong. Dead wrong. Thoughts and prayers for the families of the officers and Mr. Wilcox.

Hypocrisy Jack© has a history of trolling attempts like this. Starts a thread with a lie or misleading headline. Of course he is going to be roundly mocked for it. Deservedly so, IMHO.

 

As for BL, well, watching him unravel in that other thread is pretty sad. Kinda like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

His actions speak pretty clearly about his feelings. Certainly not afraid to confront. So, I will go with he "felt empowered".

 

"Always ready to pretend what others think"? Not really.

 

But, I can't ask him. He got himself shot and killed by engaging with an armed lunatic. All we are left with is our own interpretations. You have yours. I have mine.

I don't see the need. Hypocrisy Jack© does what he does. You have a nebulous reference to a story you heard on the radio. Fox News reports he got shot when he engaged. No mention there of him wounding anyone. (read the article I linked)

 

Try to keep up.

So, you don't care to answer the question, eh? Figures.

 

Amazing how we have been told a law-abiding citizen with a CCW will end this kind of stuff. But, that may not always be the case.

 

Do you think Wilcox would have "engaged" with the pair if he didn't have a weapon? I am willing to bet he felt empowered and truly believed he could make a difference. That is selfless.

 

But, he turned out to be wrong. Dead wrong. Thoughts and prayers for the families of the officers and Mr. Wilcox.

Always ready to pretend what others think. Since you're "willing" you may as well pony up and go ask him!

 

His actions speak pretty clearly about his feelings. Certainly not afraid to confront. So, I will go with he "felt empowered".

 

"Always ready to pretend what others think"? Not really.

 

But, I can't ask him. He got himself shot and killed by engaging with an armed lunatic. All we are left with is our own interpretations. You have yours. I have mine.

You can ask him, an honorable person would make good on "I am willing to bet" statements. Finish your will and get to it.

 

So, now you would like me to "finish my will" and what? Come on, big man. Be specific. Don't be a pussy and hide about what you want to say.

This is the Zimmerman Effect. CCW gives the carrier a hyper sense of power and causes them to do something that gets themselves hurt. The perps specifically told the Walmart shoppers to get the fuck out or be hurt. Seems the Zimmerman wanna be couldn't just do that. Live by the sword, die by the sword. So sayeth the Lord.

Don't feign sympathy for the guy for dying. We all know better. You are very happy he is dead because you think it proves a point somehow.

 

Yes, he seems to have gotten himself shot while trying to protect others. It was a Selfless act that I doubt a coward like you would understand. You are correct - live the sword, die by the sword. However, I would rather die by the sword than die cowering in a corner.

 

Its likely the CCW guy assumed, like all the previous shootings like this, that it was a lone gunman and he didn't account for the girl too. Bad assumption. Bad luck.

They also have egg on their face by instantly deciding HJ was full of it. Now the well his OP doesn't line up with the exact circumstances. I wonder of any of them will offer an apology. Something they demand of him regularly. :).

 

I will not be offering happylarkey an apology because all I said was I will wait for all the facts to be in before jumping on that notion. It appears to have been true. Even a blind happy jack finds a nut occasionally.

 

As for the others that deciding that HJ was "full of it".... well sorry but that is his own fault. Too many years and thousands of posts of misleading and sensationalist drivel for people not to assume he is full of shit as usual.

 

You know what they say...... "You can build a 1000 bridges.... but suck just one dick and they won't be calling you a bridge-builder"

Dont despair. There will be many more of these shootings where hopefully a CCW can save the day and change the minds of millions. Just like last week when simple pepper spray stopped the killer in Washington. Your time will come and you will rejoice in it.

Why would I necessarily rejoice in it? CCWs stop crime every day. According to the CDC, there's anywhere from 500,000 to 3 million instances of DGUs every year. I'm actually somewhat surprised a CCW hasn't engaged one of these mass shooters before now. But then again they tend to frequent places where CCW is not allowed - like Schools, Movie theaters, college campuses, etc.

 

The fact that these guys ran into a Walmart in Las Vegas on a Sunday afternoon and got engaged by a CCW doesn't surprise me in the slightest. I'm actually surprised there weren't 10 guns pointed at them and firing before they even left the pizza dinner.

From the Fox News website - http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/06/09/las-vegas-shooting-officers-dead-possible-white-supremacists/

 

The duo then left the restaurant and walked over to a nearby Walmart, where Jared Miller fired a shot into the air and told people to get out, shouting that it was a revolution, McMahill said.

Bystander Joseph Robert Wilcox, 31, who was carrying a concealed weapon inside the store, spotted Jared Miller and told a friend he would confront him, according to authorities. As he neared Jared, he was shot in the ribs by Amanda and later died, McMahill said.

Gillespie called the death completely senseless.

 

Let's look at the OP by Hypocrisy Jack© - "The reports are preliminary and confused but there is a report that an armed CC permit holder engaged and wounded two people that had just ambushed and executed two police officers in a fast food place and a third woman at walmart but were confronted and wounded by an armed citizen before they could continue their rampage."

 

Based on the Fox report, it sounds nmore like this guy felt he was up to the job of playing Wyatt Earp and paid a hefty price. Shitty that he died. But he did choose to engage with armed maniacs.

..and bought some amount of time for all the others, not Wyatt Earp, selfless action. These reports do not yet indicate whether he drew his weapon or not or whether he fired or not. Did his action cause the assailants to go to Plan B?

 

Well, the OP suggests he not only drew his weapon, but actively engaged the pair - and even wounded them both.

 

I have bolded the portion about how Hypocrisy Jack© did his usual schtick. Has anyone seen any reports that this guy got off a shot?

 

Why worry about what HJ said ? You were the one who tossed Wyatt Earp into the mix.

 

So, you don't care to answer the question, eh? Figures.

 

Amazing how we have been told a law-abiding citizen with a CCW will end this kind of stuff. But, that may not always be the case.

 

Do you think Wilcox would have "engaged" with the pair if he didn't have a weapon? I am willing to bet he felt empowered and truly believed he could make a difference. That is selfless.

 

But, he turned out to be wrong. Dead wrong. Thoughts and prayers for the families of the officers and Mr. Wilcox.

Sorry. In this post BD performed the ultimate act of bigotry. He ascribed his preconcieved notions to the actions of a victim. His type, holier than thou as is shown, put each person in a little box of beliefs and characteristics. I called him out on his prejudices. I have not followed, much, the Vegas story, since. BD did not know, nor I, whether the victim was Off Duty LE, Payroll security, presidential body guard or regular guy. BD did not know whether the victim had a child in the store, a mom, a cute girl working produce that he was wooing. What BD did know was that a CC holder thinks and acts a certain way. I called him on that bigotry. BD backed himself into a logical and literary corner "I am willing to bet he felt.." and I merely pointed out the (il)logical path to making good on his narrow minded bet. I am sorry he found neither irony nor humor in the literary predicament that ensared him due to his prejudices.

Since concealed weapons permit holders commit violent crimes at a lower rate than the general population, I'd say that's statistically safer than trusting the rest of you. :P

You suggest that I should hurry up and die. A lot of vitriol flies in this place, but that is a new one, in my recollection. At least be a man and take ownership of that.

It isn't clear that the CC guy even got a shot off.

 

Wilcox, 31, “immediately and heroically moved towards” Miller, McMahill said. But as went to confront the shooter, he walked right by Amanda Miller, who shot and killed Wilcox.

I have taken the time to bold and underline the point I was trying to make. We know that part of this is inaccurate, as there was no female killed at WalMart.

 

I ask again - is Jack's characterization accurate?

Not sure about the wounding, but it otherwise appears substantially true.

 

The cops said that the armed citizen saved multiple lives. To me, that suggests that the answer to Jack's question is yes.

 

Do you still believe the answer is no?

 

We can't know that he did save lives. We can't know that he didn't. He was approaching the husband when the wife shot him from behind, killing him instantly.

 

You knew what it "looked like" before.

 

Do you know what it looks like now?

 

I stand by my assertion that he felt empowered to approach a delay situation because he had a weapon. Unfortunately, reports are he got ambushed and was not able to use his weapon.

 

Still a courageous deed.

 

Just not what Hypocrisy Jack© posted in the thread starter.

Encountering an armed citizen right out of the box may have interrupted their plans. It had to change their perspective so that they were now more suspicious and wary of every other civilian. But it is not possible to say how many lives were saved. We do know one salient fact. No more innocents were shot after his intervention.

 

Was that due to his act? I for one am willing to credit his sacrifice. Is the left going to rush out and see how many parking tickets he has and try to Plumber him. Maybe the IRS should audit his estate.

we need more heroes. fewer crazies

 

Amen.

 

We do know that by his actions, Wilcox got inside the crazies' OODA Loop. He knocked them out of their carefully planned fantasies, likely causing confusion and panic, and almost certainly leading to the decision to suicide early. All without firing a shot. The man's a hero.

 

Accounts have him holding on the male crazy, but not shooting, as the crazy appeared to be stopping. That restraint is consistent with common CCW training: you don't shoot if the threat has stopped and is no longer immediate. Wilcox was unaware that the female crazy was approaching from behind. It is very rare for these crazies to work as a team.

Actually, when Obama recognizes his sacrifice at a Rose Garden ceremony to honor the victims of this latest spurt of violence, the Right will jump all over him ala Bergdorf. We'll find out wilcox had an out-of-wedlock child, smoked dope on occasion, and played Halo.

. I won't hold my breath on the rose garden thank you. Despite the fact that this guys relatives deserve it a lot more than Bowe's parents.

 

If you read this thread the ones that are ridiculing and/or down playing this Hero's actions are your fellow lefties.

How does anyone know a hell of a lot about either situation? Wilcox performed a heroic deed, we know that. We have no idea if he prevented a single death or hundreds. We have no idea what those idiots had planned, though their trail on facebook and in the pizza parlor leaves some suggestions that they were planning on starting a revolution by attacking authorities or some such meth-addled nonsense. For all we know, they were headed to Wally World to clear out their gun rack and ammo counter. When we hear about how much ammo they had with them, we will get a better idea of what they had planned for the folks in Wally World. It does seem pretty clear that he did not shoot the killers, so Simple Jack's OP is a pile of stinky hot Malarkey in that respect.

 

Bergdahl? If he deserted he should be tried...by the US, not the Taliban. Hard to try him when he isn't here to stand trial. As for his father, I reckon I'd be going batshit crazy in his shoes too. He sure seems to love his son, which is a lot more than plenty of fathers in this country can say. I think I'll wait to get the facts. If Bill O'Reilly wants to tell me to shut up for that, I'll get Radar O'Reilly to crown him with a grape Nehi.

I don't think I'd try to physically restrain a gunman who had already fired a shot inside the store. Wouldn't want to get that close.

By "holding on", are we referring to physical restraint or pointing a weapon?

 

Either way, where are these accounts?

Holding on refers to the gun being pointed at the perp.

 

The accounts I referred to are out on the web. I've read an awful lot over the last two days.

 

I've read a fair bit about this event, as well. Haven't come across anything that says something different from Wilcox telling someone he was going to try and stop them, and was shot by the woman.

It would warm my heart if many more CCW warriors gave their lives for the freedom they cherish. Hell, I'd even support a national holiday and hymn to honor them.

Meh. Not for the first time I wished for a "trail of breadcrumbs" for the web.

 

Best source I saw was an analysis of he Police press briefing. And I haven't been able to find it again.
