People don't tell me anything. Look what my cousin did. He's "the victim."

Quoted from the Times-Picayune:
The man told deputies he was coming home from work about 6:30 a.m. when a man with a sawed-off shotgun tried to rob him. The man said he told the robber he didn't have any money and pulled out his wallet to prove it. Instead, he offered the robber his car to remain safe, Tregre said.

But before the robber could respond, a car drove up the street and distracted him. The victim kicked the shotgun away from himself and the gunman started firing, Tregre said. The bullets struck the side of a house, but one pellet hit the victim in his leg.

The gunman ran and the victim decided to chase him, Tregre said.

"As the suspect was running, he passed a pickup truck with a guy seated in the passenger's side," he said. "The guy in the passenger seat bailed from the vehicle and started running with the man with the shotgun."

The pickup had been reported stolen, Tregre said. The man in the passenger seat was Weathersby, he said. As he ran, he dropped a 9 mm handgun, Tregre said.

The victim picked up the handgun and started firing at his attackers, Tregre said. The man with the shotgun fired back.
Summary:
-Some guys tried to rob him with a sawed-off shotgun
-A car passed, he kicked the gun away from him
-The robber started firing, a pellet hit him (my cousin) in the leg
-The robber ran away, so he chased him
-They passed a pickup truck (getaway vehicle) and the guy waiting in it ran too
-As he ran away he dropped a 9mm
-My cousin grabbed it and shot one of the guys in the leg while chasing them

I guess they didn't know who they were messing with. He's about 43, from Illonios, an avid hunter, a full-blown redneck (with a mullet, no less), and a new father with another baby on the way. He was probably seeing antlers on their heads as they ran. :p (cousin by marriage, by the way)

I think I have a picture of him somewhere. Anyway, cool story I thought I'd share.
crazy is all right.

They caught one of the guys. He's being held on a $123,000 bond.

I don't have any pictures of the robbery, of course, but I do have a picture of him from my god-daughter's baptism party-thing. Just so you can put a face with the story.

you have cool relatives, stupid, but cool.

giving the man his wallet and his keys was smart, kicking and chasing was dumb.

But I'm guessing you already know that don't you.

No, he's a fucking dumbass. He picked up the gun and shot back? The one that got hit will probably be able to get away with a law suit, and your cousin will wind up broke.

Yes, Melanie, your cousin does deserve a medal. Imagine those assholes sitting in jail:

"Hey, kid, what are ya in for?"

"Well, me and my buddy couldn't manage to rob one guy with two guns and a stolen truck between us."

Let this be a warning to all other criminals: you piss off a man in a mullet when you pop a pellet in his ass. Use the weapon with the big bullets first, or give up your aspirations of becoming a respectable criminal and go back to shoplifting and stealing old ladies' purses.

Mojo raises an interesting point, why the FUCK would you rob the big guy with the mullet? Surely there was someone a bit more helpless around.

Quoted from ThePerfectCore:

Haha. What the hell makes you think that? He was shot at (and wounded) first. There is no way that guy would even get a trial. Kevin (my cousin) did nothing illegal. He's the victim here, not the guy with the sawed-off shotgun. Not in the least.

If you'd been shot in the leg by someone who tried to rob you, and you had an opportunity to shoot him back, you're saying wouldn't do it? Would you really be thinking about what "laws" you were breaking? If someone just tried to take my life, I wouldn't dare be so passive.

I misunderstood something, by the way. He didn't shoot any of the suspects, he shot at them. All the "the man" and "the victim" and "the suspect" shit confused me. Kevin is the one that detained the suspect that was caught, though. He fled when the police got there, but they still apprehended him.

Quoted from Flaming Arrow:

Pretty much.

Quote:
why the FUCK would you rob the big guy with the mullet?
He isn't that big. He's like 5'8" and funny looking, but he's a really rough kind of guy. He does have the perfect mullet, though. I tease him, and he says, "I ain't got no fuckin' mullet." It's perfect, and I can't believe he offered to give up his beloved Dodge "huntin' truck."

This has got to rank as one of the most pathetic attempts at crime imaginable.

You've got a fucking gun, but you run. And then you drop it????? If I was the jury, I would sentence him to death for stupity^2.


My dad helped foil a bank robbery. Some guy was holding up the place with a knife, and a cop accidentally walked in. The cop tackled the robbery, and they started wrestling on the floor. While wrestling, the robber was trying to reach for the cop's gun. So my Dad who happened to be standing by, stepped (both feet) on the guys arm, to hold in place.

It may not seem much, but the police force of the city gave him a plaque and a free meal at a police banquet.
