Skip to comments.Walgreens Shooting: Another GREAT Post Gunfight Interview…(NE)
Posted on 06/18/2010 11:18:07 AM PDT by marktwain
As I have stated in the past, I DO NOT recommend you sit down with the news media to be interviewed following a gunfight.
However, I would be remiss in my duties to educate you on what happens IN and AFTER a gunfight if I did not share this post gunfight interview with you.
This is a great interview that demonstrates many of the key characteristics of those who command and control their destiny versus those who fall prey to random acts of violence.
Watch this extremely educational and intriguing post-gunfight video and see if you can spot WHY this man is alive today and then see my comments that follow

For later. Thank you.
ping for later
What a great heart-warming uplifting story. Great guy.
We must all be really busy right now, so I’m pinging for later also.
If you are short on time go to the 4:00 mark,,, it could have turned out much differently.
However the entire video is most interesting.
When did this happen? Any links to news stories on this event?
Bookmarking for later viewing.
Interesting video. Very lucky guy. I wonder why in the world he would put himself through such an interview and be subjected to a bunch of stupid questions from the media. The reporters were obviously trying to trip the guy up and get him to say certain things that wouldn’t be good for him.
He had his lawyer at this side, yet would I do an interview like that? No way !
There is a 2 part video on Youtube that says talk to your lawyer before you talk to the police. Part 1 is a lawyer speaking, Part 2 is a retired LEO saying the very same thing as the lawyer warns about.
Sorry I don't have the addy.
There is a lot to think about in that video.
Interesting point, in the review of all the evidence they found one of his bullets went down the barrel of the perp’s shotgun. This proves the shotgun was pointed directly at him.
Sorry I don't have the addy.
Here are links to previous postings about this incident:
talk about the lamb lying down with the wolves...
4 Later. I am sorry someone had to die, I am joyful the right person lived.
Great shooters think alike.
Not me either. Never!
The video you refer to is, "Talking to the Police" by Professor James Duane.
Very good interview, good solid citizen. One of my pet peeves however, it’s being too nice and calling would-be killers/assailants/shooters “gentlemen”. Enough of that. Call the dead perp a “gunman”, perp, whatever, but certainly not a “gentleman”, we need to get back to using proper terminology.
“Person of interest” is another idiotic label, SUSPECT is correct and then he/she can be deemed NOT a suspect upon further investigation or whatever. Heck everyone knows what LEOs are getting at anyway, trying to dance on a pinhead in today’s PC world.
Enough namby-pamby nice-nice speak.
Worth listening to the whole interview.
BANG! Another dead scumbag
No No No Didn’t you hear the reporter. He was a child. The reporter said “Did you hear that the Mother of the child, boy doesn’t blame you?”
What a jerk. If the child hadn’t attempted an armed robbery he wouldn’t be dead.
FRONT SIGHT EXCLUSIVE!: Yard Signs and window stickers:
Signs and stickers have image of silhouette target and words: “Nothing inside worth dying for”
Pathetic that they are trying to get the guy on carrying concealed. Perfect example of mindless idiots that just follow the rules.
To get his side of the story out and hopefully garner public opinion on his side since there were criminal charges pending against him........
Thats just my guess since nobody knows exactly why.
We, who have the luxury of being spectators in this, think that.
In his situation, I would do the same. Use language that sounds formal, non-offending to the professionally sensitive, etc.
A criminal charge was hanging over his head. He was clearly doing everything to appear a non-Rambo here, which is a pretty smart move when you have a DA who is looking at charging you with a crime that would prevent any future CCW issuance to you.
I understand your point, which is well taken in his situation. Reading the article you see that his prohibited weapons charge was a knife which he had to practically take the police by the hand to clarify, they were trying to put it in the category of a firearm or allude to that. That’s what I understand from the article (where’s that dratted thing now?!). Anyway, apparently there were 3 knives in the vehicle, “hunting knives” he specified.
On that point, in Texas a knife with a blade of over 5 1/2” is a prohibited weapon. That zaps the good old USMC Kabar knife and similar models, including the wonderful Model #1 Fighting Knife by Randall. They make it in a 5” now but during the VN war, our store (sporting goods) was sending them to combat soldiers/Marines that we knew over there from our community. Of course, length of blade was NOT an issue over there! What in the world would some (TX)legislator make an issue of the length of blade for?
I see it in our county court also. Had a prohibitive weapon charge (unlawful carrying) come up yesterday. I asked the County Atty just what sort of weapon. It was brass knucks. True, they are prohibited, was not a smart move. Everyone was thinking GUN, FIREARM, ASSAULT WEAPON, MACHINE GUN.
Thanks for the name of the video.
It is an eye opener for anyone talking to a LEO for what ever the reason.
All knives are now legal in Arizona.
