    The suspect allegedly pointed his gun at Latanya’s face but was distracted by the wallets on the floor and looked away to pick them up. Dennis used the brief distraction as an opportunity to draw his own gun and shoot the suspect in the stomach. Dennis said, “When I saw he had the gun in her face, and I threw my wallet down and keys, he turned to look and get the money, that’s when I lit him up.” He then “kicked the robber’s gun away” and tended to the wounded suspect until first responders arrived.

From ABC7: An Arizona trooper trying to help a motorist in a rollover crash was shot in an ambush-style attack by a random suspect, who was then fatally shot by a Good Samaritan driving by.

     A Georgia police officer from Atlanta wrote an opinion piece in the Newnan Times-Herald.  The piece vigorously defends armed self defense. It is clear that the officer is a street officer, and not one confined to his desk. From times-herad.com: My sergeant and I interviewed the homeowner, assuring him his actions resulted from fearing for his life against serious bodily injury or death. A responding investigator queried as to whether we had "coached" the victim. But our position was more about the proper assimilation of facts and fears than dishonest motives. No point in the victim being a victim…...

    Alley where bodies of robbery suspects found There is an old saying that has been worn out, warning criminals not to scare old men.  But clichés are there because they have a piece of reality embedded. An active 73-year-old retiree was well liked in the neighborhood.  He helped people out, and he spent considerable time in his garage, working on his truck.  Some young criminals, just getting into the most active part of their career, also noticed the truck and decided they wanted it. The retiree had been a victim of robbery attempts before.  Now he carried at home....

    An armed man picked the wrong store clerk to rob when he entered a Texas smoke shop last month. In surveillance footage taken of the incident, a man enters Austin, Texas, store and immediately draws a gun. Without missing a beat, the store clerk, who is smoking a cigarette, draws his own gun - a CZ-75 SP-01 9mm pistol - and begins firing at the robber. The store clerk seems completely unfazed and doesn't even put down his cigarette as he fires at the assailant. At one point while he's shooting, he even appears to try and take a drag...
