MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – The family of a suspected thief is lashing out after their son was shot during an armed robbery.
Relatives of Adric White, 18, believe the Good Samaritan who opened fire should have “just left the store.”
FOX10 spoke exclusively with a customer who stepped in to rescue employees held at gunpoint Tuesday, November 12.
The Good Samaritan, who we are not identifying, told FOX10 News he was shopping at the Family Dollar on Stanton road when he noticed a masked gunman leading one of the employees to the front of the store.
“He had the gun to his head. He had him on his knees,” said the man. “I drew my gun on him and I said ‘Hey don’t move.’ At that point he swung around and before he had a chance to aim the gun at me I fired. I didn’t want to shoot him.”
White was transported to USA Medical Center, where he remains in police custody.
A family member who did not want to be identified said White should have never been shot to begin with.
“If his (the customer) life was not in danger, if no one had a gun up to him, if no one pointed a gun at him – what gives him the right to think that it’s okay to just shoot someone?” said the relative. “You should have just left the store and went wherever you had to go in your car or whatever.”
FOX10 had interviewed White’s parents but they later called and demanded the video not be aired.
I have no words. Should have just left the store?!?!?! Oh My.
This is sick and sad; but because of the world in which we live; I might how this is going to turn out.
The Victims – Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh
On Friday a university discipline board decided to move forward with sanctions, including possible expulsion, for using the weapons. The students will learn in the near future about their future with the school. It all happened late in the night on October 24th when roommates Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh were hanging out in their university owned apartment.
The criminal – John Taylor
Taylor then attempted to force entry into the apartment. At that point McIntosh brandished his pistol. McIntosh has a concealed weapons permit for the gun and did not know it was in violation of policy at the time. Once Taylor saw the gun he left the property. McIntosh said Spokane Police took Taylor into custody after their report because he was wanted on a Department of Corrections warrant.
As much as I hate to say it; because the racial makeup of this incident, these two white victims are going to be the victims of a political correct society and will be charged and/or thrown out of school and their academic lives ruined. Because they dared to stand up to a black man and show him what happens, when you try to rob a white man in his own house.
Of course, I believe the University’s policy is also moronic as well. Banning guns in a university apartment is not the solution to the problem; it only creates an easy target for criminals; obviously as shown here. However, because we live in a society that believes that gun control is the answer, due to Marxist indoctrination, these two chaps will end up have to go another university with this incident in their records. This my friends, is the great American tragedy of the ages.
Needless to say, guns and alcohol don’t mix… and this is why!
Police say a Maine man accidentally shot off part of his face while showing his hunting rifle to friends.
Chief Joseph Massey says 31-year-old Dale Poulin, from Waterville, and friends were telling hunting stories at a home on Wednesday night when Poulin brought in his rifle to show the others.
Massey says the barrel was under Poulin’s chin when it discharged. He says it was an accident.
The chief says responding officers found a chaotic scene, with people screaming and Poulin’s chin, teeth and blood on the floor. When police arrived, Poulin was sitting in a chair with his entire face torn off from his nose down, police told The Bangor Daily News.
Massey says alcohol was involved.
“It’s one of those things where you mix alcohol and weapons and start to do very unsafe things, and you end up with a tragedy,” Massey told the Bangor Daily News
Law enforcement officials were looking for clues Saturday to what motivated a man with an assault rifle to shoot his way through security at Los Angeles International Airport, killing a Transportation Security Administration worker.
The suspected gunman, who was identified by authorities as 23-year-old Los Angeles resident Paul Anthony Ciancia, also wounded two others in the shooting Friday morning at one of the busiest airports in the U.S. Several other travelers were injured as they fled.
After walking through an “exit” lane reserved for passengers leaving the secure area of the airport, Ciancia pulled a .223-caliber semiautomatic assault-style rifle out of a bag and opened fire at the security checkpoint, authorities said.
Still firing, he continued walking through Terminal 3 of the airport, where police shot him several times in the chest. He was taken into custody in critical condition.
Minutes after noon on Thursday, October 31, an eight-person jury acquitted Sheriff Nick Finch of both charges against him. Finch, the sheriff of Liberty County, Florida, was accused of official misconduct and falsifying records. Finch maintained that he was simply standing up for the right of the people to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment.
The jury agreed, reaching its verdict in fewer than 90 minutes. Within minutes of being found not guilty, Sheriff Finch spoke with Governor Rick Scott, who reinstated Finch within hours.
“Sheriff Nick Finch will be reinstated immediately,” said Governor Scott in a written statement. “I would like to thank the members of the jury in Liberty County for their service in this trial. I would also like to thank Interim Sheriff Buddy Money for his service to the state of Florida.”
It is ironic that Scott would thank the citizens of Liberty County for their service on the jury when it was Scott’s removal of Sheriff Finch in the first place that served to effectively disenfranchise those very citizens.
There is an additional disturbing aspect of the case not being commented on by other news outlets. Imagine that Sheriff Finch had released a man arrested and jailed for having openly preached Christianity in a public place. Would Governor Scott have been so hasty to remove Finch from office? Why would the rights protected by the Second Amendment be subordinate to those guaranteed by the First Amendment?
The protection of each of our God-given rights is as crucial to the perpetuation of liberty as any other. Freedom and self-government are threatened just as much by deprivation of the right to keep and bear arms as by a revocation of the right to exercise religion.
Governor Scott’s persecution and prosecution of a sheriff standing up for the Second Amendment rights of citizens of his county is particularly questionable given the hostile climate that threatens the right to keep and bear arms nationally.
It’s over now, though, and all is forgiven. The fact remains that Finch suffered substantial financial setbacks as a result of his removal and at press time, it was unclear whether Sheriff Finch would receive back pay for the four months he was suspended.
A defense fund was established to help Finch defray the cost of mounting a defense. It is a shame, however, that a good man, a duly elected, liberty minded lawman, was forced into this position by a few connected men and politicians eager to lean on an outsider.
“I am so grateful for all the support from patriots all across the country,” Sheriff Finch told The New American after he was acquitted. “I am thrilled to be back to work.”
I am glad to see that the court made a good decision. I was not sure about the details; apparently the Court didn’t see where the law was broken. I trust the decision.
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A TSA agent was killed and several other people were injured Friday in a shooting at Terminal 3 at LAX, police said.
CBS News’ John Miller said the unidentified suspect entered the terminal wearing camouflage and opened fire around 9:20 a.m.
Preliminary indications show that he was targeting TSA employees, according to Miller.
The suspect pulled an assault rifle out of his bag, began to open fire in the terminal and proceeded to the TSA screening area, where he was able to gain access to the airport itself, according to Chief Patrick Gannon of Los Angeles World Airports.
Personnel officers tracked the man, who was able to travel as far as a Burger King restaurant. Officers then engaged in gunfire with him and were subsequently able to take him into custody, he said.
“We believe there was a lone shooter…only one person that was armed in this incident,” Gannon said.
NBC News reporter Pete Williams identified the suspect in Friday’s LAX shooting as 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia who, according to authorities, had literature on him that suggests “strong anti-government views.” Williams noted, however, that NBC News could not confirm that Ciancia was in any federal or state database or that he had been listed as a potential violent anti-government threat.
Williams reported that Ciancia was born in 1990 and is an American citizen. The motive for why he shot multiple people at the Los Angeles airport, killing one, remains unconfirmed.
“We’re told, that he had strong anti-government views,” Williams reported. “That’s based on some written material that we’re told he was carrying, that they found on him after he was shot by L.A. airport police.”
Williams noted that the shooter may have had some connection with the Transportation Safety Administration and had targeted TSA agents as his victims.
“So, it would seem to be a combination of anti-government views and some kind of grudge against the TSA,” Williams said of the shooter’s motivation.
He added that no database indicates that Ciancia was on a watch list and the shooters home has not been searched.
Why thank you Mr. Ciancia, you just handed the US Democrats and the Democrats in California a golden goose egg.
Okay, here is my feelings on what I just read. On one hand, I feel that the second amendment is an important thing, and I am fully aware of the attempts by the liberal left to suppress that right by means of local and state regulation; as well as federal regulations. I believe that to be unconstitutional.
However, on the other hand; I am also someone who believes in rule of law. If the person that was stopped and was carrying such guns —- and that person did not have the proper permits to own and carry said guns, then the officer who arrested and booked this man, was simply doing his job. I do not believe that being a second amendment supporter and being a sheriff of a town, entitles anyone of any office to knowingly break the law. Because that my friends is corruption. Anytime that any one of public office uses their position to grant favoritism, that is cronyism and this case, this man was caught.
If Nick Finch and his supporters want to see the law changed; then they should pressure their local legislators to get the law changed. What they should not do, is use their office of power to make political statements, such as releasing someone on a legit charge; that is no way to make changes in a law.
There is right way and a wrong way to handle situations like this; and it seems to me, that this man did things the wrong way.
More Black on white crime; and this time, it actually made the media.
A group of 10 black youths — one of them a 12-year-old girl — surrounded a white couple’s car in Brooklyn, viciously beating the husband and yanking the wife to the pavement by her hair as they peppered the two with racial slurs, authorities said.
“Get those crackers!” some of them screamed, according to court papers. “Get that white whore!”
The confrontation erupted about 7 p.m. Monday, as the marauding group crossed Avenue U at E. 58th St. near Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin.
Ronald Russo, 30, and his wife, Alanna, apparently had the green light and the husband honked at the group to get out of the way. The rowdy kids started kicking the car, according to the criminal complaint. Ronald Russo got out to check on potential damage to his vehicle.
And that’s when all hell broke loose.

Ronald Russo was dragged to the ground. Then he was punched and kicked in the head. He felt more blows all over his body, investigators said. He suffered a fractured nose, a broken septum, a blood clot and abrasions to his shoulder. He was treated and released from Beth Israel Medical Center.
In the midst of the attack, there was a steady chorus of epithets. “White motherf—–!” screamed the attackers, who ranged in age from 12 to 18.
Alanna Russo, 30, was calling 911 when the 12-year-old girl pulled the woman’s hair and threw her to the ground. The victim’s head slammed into the concrete. She suffered a black eye, bleeding and difficulty breathing, prosecutors said, but she refused medical attention.
Her husband’s iPhone was stolen during the melee, according to cops.
Kashawn Kirton, 18, has been charged with gang assault, harassment and menacing charges, all as hate crimes.
Daehrell Finch, 17 has been charged with gang assault, assault, menacing and harassment but does not face hate-crime charges.
Two more teens, a 12-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy, have also been arrested, but their names have not been released.
Urbangrounds has very good posting and gives some good advice:
The lesson here is obvious: If your car is ever surrounded by a mob of black youths, no matter what they say or do to your vehicle, DO NOT GET OUT OF THE CAR. Drive away. Drive over them if you have to. But do not get out of your car. Oh, and it should go without saying, but ALWAYS keep a loaded and readily-accessible hand-gun in your car. Because you never know where or when evil will raise it’s ugly head.
You can also too move away from areas where blacks tend to live too. Which is what I want to do so very bad. I wanna go live in the woods, and away from the city. I intend to get there; one day. Since Obama took office, there has been an noticeable uptick of black on white crime. Just Obama’s people doing what he told them to do, is the way I see it.
Attorneys for a man who police said shot three people at the culmination of a neighborhood feud have filed a motion demanding a jury determine whether William T. Woodward’s murder charges should be dismissed under Florida’s Stand Your Ground law.
The motion says Woodward had been the target of a variety of threats and “exercised his right under Florida law to defend himself and his family that night.”
“It’s probably best that you don’t make threats against people, they may take you seriously,” said Robert Berry, an attorney representing Woodward.
Officials say Woodward snuck up on a Labor Day barbecue and opened fire at about 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 3, 2012. Police arrived and found Gary Lee Hembree, Roger Picior and Bruce Timothy Blake all had been shot. Hembree and Picior died of their injuries. Blake, who was hit 11 times, survived.
Woodward, 44, is accused of two counts of first-degree felony murder and attempted first-degree felony murder.
Before the incident, police had responded numerous times to the ongoing dispute, according to a release. Woodward and Hembree went to court to discuss the dispute before Judge John D. Moxley. Moxley did not issue an injunction.
The motion filed by Woodward’s attorneys says in the hours prior to the shooting, all three men were yelling at Woodward and that this type of behavior had been ongoing for over a month.
In the hours before the shooting, the men called him names, and said “Come on boys. We’re going to get him. We’re going to get him, all three of us.”
Florida law allows people to use deadly force to protect against “imminent death or…prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony.”
Basically, what happened was this: This dude snuck up on these people in full Military fatigues and opened fire on a family and some friends —- while they were eating. The only thing this slime ball piece of crap needs to be doing, is to become the resident “pivot man” at the prison circle jerk.
and that ain’t the worst of it, there is this too:
Woodward’s attorneys argue that an attack could have been expected based on the words of his neighbors. They go on to mention the “Bush Doctrine,” a concept that justifies a pre-emptive attack based on the need to defend from a threat.
The “Bush Doctrine”?!?!? WOW. Just…wow.
Of course, there is this:
Melbourne attorney Kepler Funk said it was “valid” that Woodward would want an independent jury to make this decision rather than a judge, but felt it was unlikely the court would convene one for this pretrial hearing.
“It’s novel for sure, and I’m all for thinking outside the box, so I commend him for that,” he said. “I don’t know the court’s going to grant the motion though.”
In other words, this idiot has a snowball’s chance in hell in getting his case thrown out. I do not give a flying flip what someone is doing to you; teasing you, calling your momma a hoe or whatever — you cannot just sneak up on someone and empty a clip on them. That is not how it works. What works is IGNORING the persons doing this or MOVE!
I swear, I am seriously starting to wonder about people in society today!
