When someone acts irrationally and commits a crime, they’re typically held accountable for those actions no matter who they are. But not Adric White. After he was shot while robbing a Dollar General, his family wasn’t mad at him for his criminal behavior. Instead, they were furious at the good Samaritan who shot him.
According to Fox 10:
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.”
The concealed carry savior pumped out 5 rounds, and although it’s unclear how many shots actually hit White, he was rushed to a nearby hospital and treated for his wounds.
White’s family is standing by his side. Instead of the whole “actions have consequences” conversation that they should have been having, they’ve been doing their best to voice outrage that their boy had been shot “unnecessarily.” Here’s an idea, if you don’t commit gun crimes, then you won’t get shot “unnecessarily” by a concealed carry holder protecting the lives of the good people in their community.
According to an unidentified female member of White’s family:
“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? You should have just left the store and went wherever you had to go in your car or whatever.”
Well, she was right about one thing. The shooting was unnecessary, but the fault doesn’t fall at the hands of the good Samaritan. What do you guys think about this – why do you think anyone would justify the cowardly acts of the thug knowing full well who was in the wrong here?
