Suspect Robs Family at Miami Burger King, Then Man Shoots Him: Police

A father who was robbed while eating with his family took out his own gun and shot the suspect, Miami Police said.

It happened at about 1 p.m. Friday at the Burger King restaurant at Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 17th Street, police said.

The robber walked in, flashed his gun to the family, demanded their valuables, then headed for the door, according to police.

The father, fearing for his life, took out his gun and shot the suspect in the leg as he stood outside the restaurant, police said.

the idea of defensive firearm ownership/usage is the same as any other emergency equipment/supply. You have it "just in case" with the knowledge that you will probably never have to use it.

If those kids at Sandy Hook school had had naked pictures taken of them, there would be no question what society would do about such contraband.

Instead, their corpses are piled up like cordwood and the nation wrings its metaphorical hands trying to decide how to politely debate the subject of so-called "gun rights."

That's pretty inconsistent, I'd say. In fact, it's goddamned absurd.

The images, for their enduring power to re-victimize and their potential to groom future victims.

The guns and ammunition for their power to kill and injure and their potential to unpredictably do so in literally anyone's hands.

This analogy is perfectly relevant.

The 1st Amendment does not protect kiddie porn as permissible speech.

What does the 2nd Amendment protect?

29. A camera records an image of whatever is in front of it.

A gun propels a projectile toward whatever is in front of it.

It's clearly nonsense to claim that a camera's only purpose is to create porn, because the camera can be pointed at many other things.

And it's equally nonsensical to claim that a gun's only purpose is to kill, because the gun can be pointed (as most always are) at many things other than the living.

I understand the rhetorical purpose of the latter claim, but that purpose doesn't make it any less fallacious...

72. since the trial hasn't happened yet

and the media coverage has been bad and made worse by various ideologues and ambulance chasers, I hold judgment on Zimmerman. One thing I have noticed about trial by media is that the media's narrative and conventional wisdom is almost always wrong. I knew a guy who was on the Chicago Seven jury. He stopped taking anything the media says seriously, since the media accounts were nothing like the the facts that came out in court.

For example, the media talks about SYG, but the case has nothing to do with SYG since it is either murder, if the conventional wisdom is true, or self defense even under a duty to retreat law if Zimmerman's account is true. Also, how does one have a Hispanic mother, African American grandparent, about the same skin tone as Martin, and still be a white racist?

That said, I don't see killing someone in self defense as "good" or "bad". it is an unfortunate necessity but not as bad as the alternative.

23. So is the solution to child pornography to ban digital cameras?

Cameras have a lot of uses. They can be used for both good and evil purpose and the decision on how to use them is up to the person holding the camera.

Firearms are similar. They can be used for sporting purposes such as hunting or target shooting. A firearm can also be used for self defense and can enable an individual to take on an armed attacker or a much larger individual and have a good chance of stopping the attack. In the wrong hands they can be misused for criminal purpose or to cause a massacre.

The purposed assault weapons ban is a lot like banning digital cameras to stop child pornography and limitations on magazine capacity is like limiting the power of the battery in a digital camera so it could only take 10 pictures before it would have to be changed.

To me it makes far more sense to better enforce existing laws and improve them in a manner that would help to make them more effective if you wish to stop child pornography or tragic gun violence.

37. So do you feel all guns are evil? ...

Which if you do is your opinion and your right.

I feel guns are neither good or evil. The good or evil use of these weapons is determined by the minds and intentions of those who own them. That's why I support enforcing and improving gun laws that are designed to insure as much as possible that firearms are not owned by criminals and those with serious mental issues.

Reliable statistics show that gun violence has decreased to levels not seen in the last 40 years despite the increased sale of these items. Still we can do far better.

Of course it might be argued that the only real way to eliminate all most all gun violence would be to ban and confiscate ALL firearms. If you support that argument then a new AWB or a ban on the capacity of magazines is just a "good first step" as some have stated. A long journey begins with a single step.

It may be possible to gather up most firearms in many nations as they lack the strong gun culture and the number of firearms and firearm owners that our nation has. Many of these nations have far more trust in their governments than we do in the United States. We are a rowdy bunch largely descended from immigrants who left their mother nations in hope of finding freedom and opportunity. We value the Bill of Rights that the Founding Fathers gave us and appreciate the Second Amendment and feel that it is in that position for good reason. Many of us are patriotic to say the least. We have no desire to live under the thumb of a tyrannical government and feel that our firearms serve as a deterrent to the establishment of one. While this may prove to be a delusion, we are fond of it.

There are many good ways to reduce gun violence and tragic massacres in our nation but sadly the gun control movement seems to believe that only way is to ban certain weapons because of their cosmetic features and have a theory that limiting the number of rounds in a magazine will make it extremely difficult for an insane person to run amok and carry our a massacre. If our media would live up to its responsibility under the First Amendment, they could show the foolishness of such ideas but the media feels that it must help promote gun control and unwilling to fairly investigate the issues. The media's bias and its lack of firearm knowledge only exacerbates the situation.

So we muddle along and do little to solve the problem we face. Our police catch individuals with a long criminal record carrying an illegal firearm and our judges give them a slap on the wrist. A year later they murder someone and get caught and we wonder how this could happen. A few people with severe mental issues wave red flags but find no help inside our mental health care system. Their names do not even make it into the NICS database so they are still able to buy firearms at a gun dealer. Once again we wonder how this could happen after they slaughter a large number of people but we do nothing to try to prevent it. We put signs on the doors of our schools that say the firearms are not allowed but resist having trained and armed guards inside in many of these schools and wonder why a shooter would consider them a shooting gallery that offers an opportunity to rack up a high score of "kills". We fail to admit that our War on Drugs was lost decades ago and then are distressed at the number of people who are killed in the crossfire between drug gangs fighting over turf.

I feel there are ways to solve our problem but they are far from simple and inexpensive.

45. So you reserve the right to engage in armed rebellion.

 

That's the constitutional purpose of the 2A?

I happen to agree with you.

Prior to the Civil War, that is, and when the population of our entire nation was 4 million people.

Now moot. The "tyranny" opposed in 1861 was freeing slaves from their owners. It met as empassioned a resistance as we have ever known.

And there was nothing righteous about it.

Since that time, we have lived under the Covenant of Appomattox.

Which is that armed rebellion is never legitimate in this country.

The 2A is as relevant as the three-fifths compromise.

39. Wouldn't a more effective analogy equate the images to a corpse?

In this context I find it more consistent to equate guns with cameras, both of which are simply instruments to be used for good or ill. The misuse of either of these instruments produces an end product that is always immoral, the pornographic image on the one hand and the murdered corpse on the other.
I think that differentiating the instrument from the end product in the case of cameras while equating the instrument with the product in the case of guns is disingenuous and inconsistent.

seems to me that a criminal used a gun to rob people...he didn't shoot any innocent people this time..nobody died and a person who is obviously inclined to point a gun at people while robbing them is off the street along with his gun...seems, while maybe not perfect, not too bad of outcome..

The Burger King incident followed an earlier incident in which the duo teamed up to rob a young woman of her iPhone 4S at 2200 NE 4th Ave. at about 10:15 a.m., with Smalls driving the truck as they fled, police said. Her phone was later found inside the truck, police added.

Access to a gun is where this story commenced before the curtain even went up.

Everything which happened afterward, despite your sense of justice and public safety about it, is kind of an empty victory.

A lot of risk and disruption and emotional and physical pain just to finally recover the thing which was a danger in and of itself to indulge whatsoever in the hands of the public.

Police said they found him and the driver, 38-year-old Ramon Smalls, a few blocks away thanks to a Good Samaritan who followed them and alerted police. The two suspects were taken into custody at a gas station at Northeast 2nd Avenue and 26th Street after they apparently ran out of fuel, police added.

34. Zombie.

Why are you still here? It's obvious to everyone that you are Shares United, who was banned from this forum for wishing harm on other DU members and for indulging in graphic and sadistic fantasies.

61. No doubt. But it sounds very much

 

like you want access to guns and ammo to citizens in the first place.

So aren't you reaping what you sow in a way?

Otherwise, how do the bad guys get guns?

2. Hear's guessing the robber ...

 

... will think twice about pulling a gun on a family again. He took his chances when he threatened to use deadly force on a family.

5. You mean a dozen bystanders weren't mowed down in the process?

 

That's what I keep hearing - you can't use a gun in a public venue without it turning into a Quentin Tarantino movie.

Better creme-filled ones there, anyway.

36. Yes.

We can learn so much about life from movies.

46. Sounds like you're entirely familiar with the scene to which I refer.

 

An armed citizen with the best of intentions inadvertently causing a mass killing.

And a serendipitous windfall for Don Cheadle's character.

It's a real twist for the storyline of Buck Swope's.

54. I already gave the arguments the last time ...

... you were here, when you were "Shares United." You were banned. Now you seem to think it's fine to slink back in under a new name and carry on with the same old tired memes.

You were tombstoned, yet you walk among us. Hence "zombie."

Not an ad hominem -- merely a statement of fact.

62. This is your fallback? Movies?

How about real life examples of it happening, given the US DoJ puts defensive gun uses in legal conditions at 60-100K per year depending on year.

It says it was a father who fired fearing for the safety of his family, not a NYPD officer.

56. I've been to that Burger King. No more.

It's in an area where condo skyscrapers border the inner-city.

"The Burger King incident followed an earlier incident in which the duo teamed up to rob a young woman of her iPhone 4S at 2200 NE 4th Ave. at about 10:15 a.m., with Smalls driving the truck as they fled, police said. Her phone was later found inside the truck, police added."

76. "headed for the door"

 

I don't get this at all. If the robber was leaving/fleeing, how is the man's LIFE threatened by that? Is this why he shot the prep in the leg and not in the BACK? Florida's SYG is very, very bad.

77. I was about to ask the same thing. If the robber was headed toward the door, how was he

in fear for their lives? Sounds fishy to me.

78. I doubt SYG would apply if the suspect was leaving.

The guy would have a hard time establishing "fear for his life" when the guy is already out the door. Then it becomes revenge/fear-for-my-wallet, and that's the difference between justified shooting and murder.

79. has nothing to do with Florida's SYG

perhaps reading the law would be better than taking what some C and R blogger claims. It is not protected, if the media account is to be believed. Two reasons I don't really bother with these.
The media usually gets important details wrong
There are might be a lot of relevant details missing.
