WEST ALLIS (WITI) A Marine Corps veteran was able to stop a man early Tuesday, March 12th from nearly kicking a woman to death. It happened near 102nd and Lincoln, and Wisconsins concealed carry law made his efforts possible.
Charlie Blackmore was driving home from work at 4:00 a.m. along Lincoln Avenue when he saw something on the sidewalk. Blackmore didnt realize it was a woman on the ground being kicked in the head and stomach until he got closer.
Thats when he jumped out of his car and sprung into action.
I said stop and he starts coming towards me and that`s when I drew on him. He started getting closer and I said get down on the ground, Blackmore said.
Blackmore held his gun on the suspect and called West Allis police. He says several times while waiting for police to arrive, the attacker moved toward him.
I mean Ive already made it up in mind that if he came at me I was going to have to take him down and I told him that. I warned him multiple times not to come towards me because he was a big guy and I wasnt playing around and he didnt seem like he was playing around, Blackmore said.
Blackmore says police eventually showed up and had to force the suspect to the ground. They then asked to see Blackmores concealed carry permit.
I put my hands up turned around and said you can grab it out of my wallet. Checked my permit, gave me my wallet back, and then interviewed me for their paperwork, Blackmore said.
West Allis police say that paperwork is not yet available. For that reason, the name of the attacker and his victim have not yet been released.
She had a really big laceration by her eye and it looked like her nose was broken, Blackmore said.
Blackmore didnt catch any names either, but said the victim told him the man is an ex-boyfriend.
She was not with him anymore and he had stalked her that day or something and he attacked her on her way to work, Blackmore said.
Blackmore says situations like this are why he supports Wisconsins concealed carry law, and the rights of gun owners.
We do good things. Not all of us are bad or crazy gun nuts. There are good people, Blackmore said.
The West Allis police chief says these types of situations really are judgement calls for gun owners. While they dont encourage this behavior, they appreciate citizens watching out for each other as long as they do it legally and are willing to accept the consequences.
Adding, “ARMEDCITIZEN,” to keyword list.
They can stick their “consequences” where the sun don’t shine!
From the mouths of the ruling class Jack Boots, to our ears.....Anyone got any questions about what's wrong in this country?
Has anybody thought to seek a comment from the Milwaukee County Sheriff?
Marine with concealed carry permit stops man from beating woman
Gotta love these headlines. Who writes this stuff?
I’m guessing - by the headline only - that the marine whips out his permit and the perp runs away.
Now... on to reading the article.
How dare he stop the beating!?? Why is he interfering in other people's personal business!!??
(General observation, not specificlly related to the story) It is the epitome of irony that the left wants to disarm ordinary citizens (except themselves, of course) but, when they are the victims of violence, they are happy to see someone with a gun come to their rescue!
Translation: A citizen who is disarmed and stands by and watches while a woman is potentially being kicked to death is preferable to an armed citizen who will stop the attack.
I daresay that if Blackmore did have to shoot this guy - he’d be in jail right now facing charges.
I’d hate to have to consider risking my entire future over involving myself in someone else’s domestic abuse problems.
Headline: “Drug dispute, 4 shot, 2 dead.” Instant campaign against all guns by ususal suspects.
Headline: “Legal, licensed gun owner saves life of badly beaten woman.” Instant sound of silence from the usual suspects.
What a heartwarming story! I love a happy ending.
Lucky it wasn’t in Milwaukee proper. Didn’t the chief of police there say he’d have his “troops” put them on the ground first and then “worry” about permits later? (Is West Allis part of milwackee jurisdiction? Not sure.) And, yet again, no cops in sight to stop this attack. When seconds count................. The clean up crew arrives a half hour later. Good thing he didn’t have to pop the perp. Ex gfriend would have turned on the citizen cause she used to “luv” the big lummox.
It floored me the the police would say that. So if the Marine had been carrying without a permit, it would have been preferrable that the woman get kicked to death?
I once had a prolonged relationship with LARGE ALICE courtesy an arranged marriage by Uncle Sugar.
“Id hate to have to consider risking my entire future over involving myself in someone elses domestic abuse problems.”
It would really bother me forever if I didn’t help her
I can see that. I agree. Who knows what you or I would have done. We weren’t there. But I’d like to think I would have stopped the beat down. Told the victim to get in and I would take her to a safe place and call 911.
Even at this.... I imagine having to draw against the perp.
>>> While they dont encourage this behavior
Of course, police shouldn’t ‘encourage’ your ex to beat you or kick you in the head and stomach......
oh, never mind.
While those officers were off citing someone for a traffic violation, Mr. Blackmore was saving this woman from having her head kicked in.
They should be giving him the keys to the city and deputizing him.
IOW - stay out of it. When we (leos) finally show up, we'll clean the mess and do the paper work...
West Allis is indeed in Milwaukee Co.
