´When has it ever become legal to
shoot someone because they’re
pulling off in your car?´

Chicago Tribune, by Katherine Rosenberg-Douglas

Original Article

Janique Walker knows the cost of a split second. Her younger brother, 17-year-old Charles Macklin, was killed while trying to steal a Jeep from a Chicago fire lieutenant on the West Side last August. The lieutenant had left the Jeep running, and Macklin jumped behind the wheel. The lieutenant ran in front of the Jeep and shouted, “Get out,” according to a police report. When Macklin began pulling away, the lieutenant drew his gun and fired through the open driver’s side window, hitting the teen in the chest. Macklin’s last words were, “Sorry, bro,” according to the police report. The teen died on the pavement. He did not have a gun on

Grand theft auto putz deserved to be shot. I´m tired of criminals being catered to, left off on charges, and even if they get prosecuted only get a slap on the wrist.

Although the “teen” is an unsympathetic character, I suspect the fire department lieutenant was not charged because he is well connected to the Chicago ruling class.

Every crime is a degree of murder. If someone saves every penny they can for four years to buy a car, and a criminal steal its, that criminal just took four years of the persons life.

FTA: 17-year-old Charles Macklin, was killed while trying to steal a Jeep from a Chicago fire lieutenant. The kid didn´t TRY to steal, but actually STOLE the jeep! Crazy people keep demonstrating for the wrong reason, thus will never ever LEARN from their mistakes. They keep breeding and feeding this cycle of "it´s never my fault".

If the criminal had attempted a cash robbery, gunfire usually occurs. A car is worth tens of thousands. Cops usually tell you to call your insurance company. Where I live, 13 year olds have been stealing cars to have fun wrecking them.

Not everybody can afford to carry comprehensive insurance to pay for a theft, so it is not as simple as saying insurance would have paid for it. I wonder how much insurance the sister has. None. That is what I thought. In this case, the Lt. had every right to defend his property. The Lt. pulled his weapon and ordered get out. The teen made a fatal decision not to get out, and the consequences of that decision lie with the teen.

That fireman was standing In Front of the Jeep as the car thief was pulling away. That created a reasonable belief that the criminal would have run over the fireman with his own vehicle. That´s why the fireman wasn´t prosecuted.

That´s why the sister doesn´t have a case, and her brother wasn´t just a thief, but was a would be murderer stopped by his would be victim.

the low-lifes who support this criminal´s sister, thinks its ok to rob and steal so long as there is insurance involved. How many criminal scum do their due diligence to ascertain the amount of insurance. Moreover, its not really a nonfelony to steal from an insurance company. Im assuming she thinks its also ok for the citizenry to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to incarcerate this loser so he can learn how to do additional crimes better. the world is better off the way it turned out!

If he had exited the vehicle when ordered to he would still be alive, happily thuggin´ along. Unfortunately he didn´t. He, instead, played a stupid game and won a stupid prize. And his thug buddies learned that actions have consequences, even for those of the melanin-enhanced set who think that their skin color should excuse their bad behavior.

Many car thefts result in high speed chases which put the police and all in the path of the stolen vehicle in mortal danger. I would rather see the perp stopped in his tracks with a piece of lead before things get out of hand.

In the Old West, horse-stealing got you an automatic trip to a tree with a rope. This is no different.

"Pulling off in you car" should bring to mind the time you gave the keys to your teenager for prom night. Or watching the valet park your car after arriving at a hotel. It is not the same as auto theft.

If the thief could have reasonably been able to run over the owner, he was with his rights to stop a deadly threat by car. Cops are fairly frequently in this position, and are regularly not charged. Good, the world is better now, without the thief.

#11 is correct. Only imminent threat of death or bodily harm to you or another justifies the use of deadly force. That´s what we learned in NC CCW class. Otherwise, you can be charged. Fair? Debatable. Horse theft was a hanging offense in the Old West...

When the he´ll did it become the norm that a thief has no consequences for his actions? I´d have shot him, too. If he´s in a stolen car, and puts it in gear, he´s now in possession of a lethal weapon while in commission of a crime.

Nonsense! The thief was stealing the man´s car. You have an absolute right to protect your life and your property- what kind of an idiot dares someone to shoot them as this little freak did? Once the gun was drawn on him, he should have stopped and surrendered. He chose to arrogantly drive off under the barrel of a drawn fire arm. That is about as stupid an act as a human can commit. I would have plugged the stupid jerk, too.

And folks who say, "Let the insurance deal with it." fail to mention the deductibles and the depreciation you have to pay for out of your pocket. The insurances does not replace your car, they help meliorate the loss, but you are still out several thousand dollars and all kinds of inconvenience in your life because some worthless low life predator chooses you for the moment.

I´m with the fireman totally! And everyone who has a decent, earned life should be with him, too.

In Texas is is legal to use deadly force in defense of personal property. Texas Penal Code Sec. 9.32. So the answer to the headline question is ´it depends on what state you are in.´

A wise dad (me) taught his kids to understand that if they decided to make poor decisions, they had to do it with the full understanding that they did not know and had to take whatever consequences were meted out. They learned that lesson as they saw their schoolmates act foolishly and suffer greatly.
This young man’s life is over because he took a chance and stole a car from the wrong man. His fellow dropouts can take notes and apply the lesson-consequence at the dinner table when dad comes home from work. That’s how it is, right?

I´m with #13. Considering carrying but as a risk-averse individual, worry that I may someday have to make a sudden decision that I can rationalize but a jury of my peers (the ones stupid enough to be acceptable to the defense attorney) won´t see the same way. Good for the fireman that he wasn´t charged (particularly in a place like Chicago) but this COULD have wound up really bad for him. Article doesn´t say why the vehicle was left running while parked on the street. Me? I wouldn´t have let things get as far as they did. Too bad for the kid that he chose to put himself in a position that risked great bodily harm.

My only input to to ask what was in the vehicle? It isn´t JUST the vehicle itself; the owner may have had various media items, such as a laptop, or important documents, or a child in the backseat. Do we have all the information about this incident ? What happens if the potential thief has an accident, kills someone, or uses the car to commit a crime. There is so much information left out of these so-called news articles ! i have no comment on the shooting.

Jackson and Sharpton should be ashamed that their decades of manipulation of the black community has come to this. That they think they can steal anything that doesn´t belong to them because society owes it to them.

Liberals still don´t see the reality that their policies in every urban area for the past 50 years have been proven to be abject failure. Some choices in life reap huge and potentially devastating consequences, and being told your entire life by activists you aren´t responsible for your own behavior has led to tragedies such as this one.

In the Old West they regularly hung horse thieves, even after a fair trial. Stealing a running Jeep is no different from stealing a breathing horse.

And since when does one black male murdering another black male for "disrespecting him" EVER been considered "normal" in our society? Fix that problem and your Jeep problem gets fixed too.

The whole issue in this case was not about the theft of property. It was about the FACT that the shooter was in front of the Jeep, being driven by the thief and coming forward at the armed person with the Jeep as the thief´s "weapon". Had the thief actually stopped the vehicle and not made physical threat with the other person with the vehicle, then he would not have been shot. The reality that so many fail to understand, is that more victims are killed with things that are infinitely more "lethal" than firearms. Even baseball bats kill more people in America than firearms according to the FBI data. Many more are killed by others vehicles than firearms as well.

I blame the thief, the mother, the sister, his community/culture. All of them failed to impress on this ex-criminal a basic set of values. He was playing with the thug life and it killed him. The shooter would have been happy to have a conversation with the dope, talk about his car, firefighting, whatever. The dope forced the consequences, but obviously he was taught that it was an acceptable thing to do, even noble somehow in a thug culture.

Trump and Putin’s OJ-like search
for the ‘real’ meddling culprits
New York Post, by Benny Avni    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/17/2018 4:43:38     Post Reply
When did OJ become POTUS? President Trump told a Helsinki press conference Monday that Russian strongman Vladimir Putin has an “interesting idea” about resolving questions on election meddling in the 2016 election: create a joint American-Russian committee on inquiry. That is, Moscow and Washington will together investigate whether Russian agents were responsible for hacking the DNC computers, as a US prosecutor answerable to Trump alleged late last week. They’ll find who’s responsible for other election shenanigans, which Trump’s top intel officials believe to be Russia’s handiwork. In other words, Putin — like OJ Simpson after his acquittal — will be looking for the

Mandalay Bay owners sue

The corporate owners of the Mandalay Bay casino filed suit against the victims of last year’s Las Vegas concert mass shooting, claiming it has no liability for the massacre, according to a published report on Monday. MGM Resorts International went to federal courts in Nevada and California and took on more than 1,000 shooting victims, saying claims against the hotel giant “must be dismissed.” “Plaintiffs have no liability of any kind to defendants,” the complaints argue, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Las Vegas lawyer Robert Eglet, who is representing several victims, told the paper that the hotel’s unusual action is a pre-emptive

U.S. immigration officials took aim at San Francisco’s sanctuary city law Monday in the case of the San Mateo man accused of being the “Rideshare Rapist.” In a statement, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said the city’s policy of not honoring ICE holds “shields criminal aliens who prey on the community.” The suspect, Orlando Vilchez Lazo, 36, is being held in jail in San Francisco in lieu of $4.2 million bail and faces life in prison in connection with the rapes of four women who got into his car believing him to be a ride-hail driver, police said.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — A federal judge on Monday ordered a temporary halt to any deportations of immigrant families who were reunited after being separated by the Trump administration at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw imposed a delay of at least a week after a request from the American Civil Liberties Union, which cited "persistent and increasing rumors ... that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification." Justice Department attorney Scott Stewart opposed the delay but did not address the rumors in court. He said he would respond later in writing. The judge gave the

Veni, vidi, vici. That’s what Trump would have tweeted en route to a weekend of golf at his courses in Scotland had he not forgotten his high school Latin. Traditional diplomat Nicholas Burns, former U.S. ambassador to NATO, says “The president treated the NATO allies almost with contempt.” Delete “almost” and Burns has it right. But the tone of Trump’s tweets and comments are best understood as the exasperation of this American president who wants to succeed where his predecessors failed—ending that part of the post-World War II settlement that disadvantages America. And if that means abandoning traditional diplomacy in

San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday. Breed, a Democrat who was inaugurated as San Francisco’s mayor Wednesday, urged homeless advocacy groups that receive money from the city to teach homeless people to “clean up after themselves.” “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.” The streets of San Francisco are littered with a “dangerous

Yesterday’s hearing on Capitol Hill featuring FBI agent Peter Strzok quickly turned into a political firefight among lawmakers, but overall it was a damning illustration of the toxic culture that exists within the Washington, D.C., beltway. At one point, Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy confronted the former investigator over some anti-Trump texts he had sent. In 2016, after FBI lawyer Lisa Page asked Strzok if Trump would ever become the president, his response was, “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.” Republican committee members read a number of Strzok’s vitriolic texts about Donald Trump and his supporters, and at one point

Hillary Clinton still thinks she is relevant. This week Hillary spoke in Pittsburg to the American Federation of Teachers. Since her 2016 lost to an utterly political outsider in President Trump, Hillary has not swayed far from the opportunity to make news headlines or receive a cool $250,000 just for giving her inept opinion on something. Now, she is trying to tell others what is American. During her speech, Clinton said that Trump is “trying to rip the heart out of America.” She went on to say that a test of a society is how we treat our most vulnerable, old

The Left´s dismally weak case

The venerable Washington Post, the newspaper that brought down a Republican president and spawned at least two Hollywood movies, a paper backed by the resources of the wealthiest man in America, sicced three reporters (including a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter) and six researchers on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. This fearsome team produced two exposes on the nominee revealing that — drum roll, please — Kavanaugh drinks Budweiser at his local pub and used a credit card to buy season tickets to his hometown baseball team. When NARAL, the multimillion-dollar abortion lobby, trained its resources on the man, they came up with

A man parked his motorcycle on the sidewalk Saturday morning, ruining the aesthetic of the last remaining Blockbuster in the continental United States. “You can’t park there,” general manager Sandi Harding told the man as he walked into the store in Bend, Ore. “People are trying to take pictures.” The man paused for a beat. There was confusion in his response. “Trying to take pictures?” Somehow he had missed the past decade, when Blockbuster the video rental behemoth became Blockbuster the fallen victim of modernity. In 2004, at the company’s peak, 9,000 Blockbuster outlets studded city blocks and suburban strip malls nationwide, a onetime indelible

Is abortion a sad and unfortunate reality — regrettable, as we are sometimes told, but often necessary — or is it a breezy nothingburger, completely “normal,” and something to be giddily celebrated like a last-minute NFL touchdown? For a long time, the abortion lobby has had difficulty deciding. This summer, it seems that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — and the rising feverish chatter surrounding the possible demise of Roe v. Wade — might just push the pro-abortion movement over the edge. By now perhaps you’ve seen the horror show cooked up by Michelle Wolf, the Netflix star best known for

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause. The form letter is one small piece of the message minefield erupting around Kavanaugh

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Hillary Clinton loyalist Philippe Reines, who served as a senior State Department appointee under Clinton and later as campaign adviser for Clinton’s losing 2016 presidential bid, organized a protest at the White House Monday night timed for the return home around 9 p.m. EDT by President Donald Trump from his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland earlier Monday. Reines was joined at the protest by current Hillary political adviser Adam Parkhomenko, who said Trump-hating porn star attorney Michael Avenatti would be at the White House to protest Tuesday night.

Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter. Cohen’s bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she’s working hard to boost her profile, but she’s running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age—and the

President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted. “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” Trump and Putin fielded questions from reporters at a joint summit in Helsinki following a one-on-one meeting earlier in the day. Trump praised Putin during

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.
