In Philly

Cable company shows up at woman’s house, at the back door. Alarmed and thinking it odd, she answers the door with a gun. The cable workers have no identification. Later, the police show up, with guns drawn, and take her gun.

I wonder why she’s dressed like a ninja?

    This is a prime EXAMPLE of why NOT to live in an inner city environment. Where I live, if you show up at someones BACKDOOR without some sort of ID or credentials, you get BUCKSHOT in your BEHIND! And then the local sheriff comes and takes the body away. This is a prime example of criminal stupidity on the parts of the cable guys and local LE. If I were her I would SUE in Federal District Court.

    “I wonder why shes dressed like a ninja?”

    Because she is a convert to Islam?

    I thought this blog was all touchy, feely and sensitive, y’all?

    “‘They didn’t find my son’s murderer but they got me,’ she said. ‘Now I don’t have a gun to protect myself.'”

    Markie Marxist sez: “The system we’ve put in place is working perfectly! Our Marxist/warrior/hero/criminals have free rein, while the law-abiding are harrassed and disarmed. Ha! Ha! We Communistas own this country!”

    So the cable company workers were scared for their lives, but not scared enough to leave and they hung around doing work in the lady’s yard. I’d say that is proof right there that this was not simple assault. She should sue.

    I’ve been to Philly a number of times. I’ve even worked there. I wasn’t impressed with anything outside of the historic area. I don’t understand why anyone would want to stay there. Sure we all come from somewhere and family might be there. This would be a shining reason for me to leave; but I think I would leave when my son was murdered! I bet she stays and doesn’t get her gun back. I also bet some of the cable workers have arrest records and simply didn’t like how she insisted they come to the front door so one decided to “get” her for her “cable worker” insensitivity. There appears to be A-holes everywhere these days.

    Pocket pistols are meant to be kept in a pocket until needed.

    And if she kept the gun at her side, she still let the guys at the back door see it unnecessarily.

    I was raised down in the South to be polite – never let anyone see your handgun unless and until you are aiming and pulling the trigger.

    I’ve had some similar fucked-up “Cable Calls”. I looked out front door and saw too kids minding their own business. I opened the door to talk to them, the gun stayed behind the door out of sight.

    I have no idea what they were up to, said they worked for Comcast, but all they had were clipboards and small generic Comcast cards on lanyards around their necks.

    I told them to get the fuck off my porch and slammed the door. They got the fuck off my porch, so I put my gun away and went to bed.

    I agree. Always keep the gun hidden.

    I also say, if ANYONE is banging on your back door to the point where you are scared, DON’T OPEN IT. They will either go away or they will break the door down and enter. This is the point where you don’t have to hide your gun anymore since you will probably be needing to use it.

    As an asside, if the cable company guys were being dicks and banging on my back door, I wouldn’t give them permission to be on my property. I would tell them to take a hike and come back when they are ready to come knock on the front door like civilized people.

    The problem here is that when you factor in the usual amount of false reporting, there is so much range of possibilities on what happened that you can’t evaluate the reasonableness of the arrest.

    So if she is found not guilty of a crime, why would she have to petition the court to get her legally owned firearm back? Am I missing something?

    Mayor Nutter hearts Richard Daley, which answers all questions about why Philly cops behave the way they do.

    She needs to find a hungry lawyer and see if he can her a piece of Philly for her very own.
