Man died in this car

Freddy’s Note:
I find this hard to beleive that this is not related to the Ferguson Mo Gangs of thugs.  I also would recommend any one in St. Louis be armed at all times for the immediately future. If this happened to me, I would have used the 16 bullets in my Beretta 92FS to defuse the situation permanently.

Gang of teens beat St Louis motorist to death with hammers in front of his wife after he got out to confront them when they attacked his car

A gang of teenagers used hammers to beat a newlywed to death in front of his wife and friend after they attacked his car early on Sunday morning in an apparently random attack.
Zemir Begic was heading home from a bar at 1:15 a.m in St Louis when a group of teenagers surrounded his car and began banging on it.
The 32-year-old stepped out of the vehicle, only to be yelled at and set upon with hammers, striking him in the head, abdomen and face and leaving him fatally injured.

He was unconscious when police arrived – he was taken to St Louis University Hospital, where he later died.

His wife of six months Arijana Mujkanovic said: ‘The last thing he did before he actually died was pull me out of the way and put himself in front of me, basically giving up his life for me.’

‘That is out of anger because he doesn’t deserve this and most of these people don’t even know him,’ she told KSDK.

Some punk tried to steal one of my cars last night….

car_thief1Someone tried to steal one of my cars last night.  My wife surprised the criminal  in our driveway.  It was really pouring heavy rain last night.  Not the best time to steal a small convertible car.

My wife was going out to her car and there was someone in my little car.  The man in a black hoodie got out of the car and ran up the street.  My wife came back inside and yelled to me.

My son and I grabbed a few guns and went after the punk.  He must have had a partner up up the street in a car. Because we searched the neighbor for a while and couldn’t find anyone

I put the antique car in the garage turned on all the exterior floodlights and we waited to see if they came back.  Unfortunately, the punk did not.  My son was carrying a Beretta and his Colt 1911 and I had my Beretta 92fs and my UZI.

There is a security light out in the driveway that I will be fixing today. I live in a Stand your Ground, and Home is your Castle state. If the guy comes back, he may not get to chance to leave my property again. We will be ready and prepared.

UPDATE:

I was reading the Nashua Telegraph Website today and saw this report. Which was posted shortly after we chased away the car thief.

NASHUA | SHOTS FIRED | CALLER BELIEVES SHOTS MAY HAVE COME FROM BLUE ACURA SEDAN. USE CAUTION IN AREA. | SNHEA1

We were driving around this area looking for the car thief.  I wonder if the Blue Acura had the car thief and his partner in it? Well they may have been armed.  Well, I had my UZI that I built and documented on this web site.  Plus 3 other hand guns between us, I think we could have outgunned them if they had confronted us.

Home Invasion outside Detroit

Burglary suspect is expected to recover after being shot in the hand by a homeowner he attempted to rob.

Bloomfield Township police said two men forced their way into a home in the 1600 block of Bloomfield Place, near Square Lake and Telegraph roads, about 9:30 p.m. Monday and demanded money.

The homeowner agreed to give them money and led one of the suspects to a bedroom.

“In the bedroom the victim grabbed a firearm, a struggle ensued and the resident shot at the suspect,” said Lt. Phil Langmeyer. “The struggle continued and the suspects ultimately left the residence.”

The homeowner fired another round as the suspects were fleeing, Langmeyer said.

Oakland County Sheriff deputies found the injured suspect at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac, where he sought treatment for his gunshot wound. He was questioned and arrested, before being transported to Beaumont Hospital for additional treatment.

Police are searching for the second suspect, described as a white man, in his 20s, about 6 feet tall and 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark coat and stocking cap and oh yeah is probably bleeding profusely from a gun shot wound.

Another in a continuing series of incidents where a person with a gun prevented harm to himself or his home.

Robbery attempt of armed man fails. 3 suspects in custody, 1 at large.

Francis Muchanic, Erica Major, Dylan Brewer and Evan Hess thought they had the robbery planned.

They didn’t anticipate the .357 Smith and Wesson revolver in their target’s hands. The fallout from the unseen variable led to three of them falling into police custody while one remains at large.

State police at Gibson said Mr. Muchanic walked up to David Braman’s Creek Road home in New Milford and began to open the door just before 8 p.m. Monday. Mr. Muchanic, 31, of Susquehanna, said he was having car trouble and was hoping Mr. Braman would let him use the phone.

The 69-year-old man, armed with a revolver, knew it was a lie when he saw the ski mask and handgun.

Mr. Muchanic burst through the door, Mr. Braman fell and a scuffle ensued, state police said.

Outside, Ms. Major, 30, of Susquehanna, waited for her boyfriend to finish the job. Mr. Brewer, 20, of New Milford, and Mr. Hess, 20, of Forest City, stood nearby. Three shots rang out from inside.

Mr. Muchanic stumbled out of the house with a bullet wound in his groin and fell. Mr. Brewer and Mr. Hess fled into the rural landscape. Ms. Major picked up her bleeding boyfriend and put him in his car. They took off and headed for the New York border.

Ms. Major placed a call on the road. A dispatcher about 20 miles away at the Susquehanna County Communications Center picked it up.

Ms. Major explained to the 911 dispatcher she and her boyfriend were driving north on Interstate 81 and pulled over to help a fellow driver in Great Bend Twp. A problem occurred when Mr. Muchanic got out of the car the other driver pulled out a gun and shot him in the groin, she told the dispatcher, according to police.

The couple pulled over at a rest area just over the New York State border and Mr. Muchanic was transported to Wilson Memorial Hospital in Binghamton, N.Y., where he was charged by police with robbery, theft, receiving stolen property, simple assault burglary and criminal conspiracy. He was also charged by the New York State Police as a fugitive from justice. He is in critical condition at the Binghamton hospital, state police said. Preliminary hearing information was not available.

Ms. Major was arrested in Pennsylvania for criminal conspiracy to commit robbery, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property and filing false reports. She was sent to Susquehanna County Prison on $100,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Monday.

Mr. Brewer was apprehended in Pennsylvania and charged with attempted theft and criminal conspiracy to commit robbery. He was sent to Susquehanna County Prison on $50,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is also scheduled for Monday.

Mr. Hess was not apprehended and is sought on a warrant charging him with attempted theft and criminal conspiracy to commit robbery.

Street in Greenwich Village New York City where car was stolen

Freddy’s Note:
All of us that carry guns on a daily basis are asked the question many times.  The question is why do you carry a gun to: Blank.  I have been asked… You don’t need a gun to go:

  • Food Shopping
  • the Mall
  • to Church
  • Out to Dinner
  • Outside doing yard work on your own property
  • to Doctor’s Office
  • to Walmart
  • and every other place in the world except the Post Office and a Court House (You can’t carry there)

This series of continuing posts demonstrates the need to carry a gun can arise anywhere that you go. And it is always better to be prepared.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)

A Greenwich Village man clearing snow away from his truck Friday morning was carjacked in broad daylight, police announced.

The snow had stopped falling and it was dead quiet on Christopher Street when the incident occurred just after 9 a.m. There were much fewer people out than on a normal weekday because of the snow.

According to police, a building superintendent was shoveling snow next to his blue Dodge Ram when a man in his 20s appeared and pulled out a gun. He drove off without firing a shot, police said.

The super had the car running when the suspect approached, police said.

A man whose salon window faces the crime scene said he didn’t hear anything, Silverman reported.

“We keep the doors locked. I was sitting in here counting money, ironically enough,” Scott Smith said.

“That’s incredibly concerning,” said Christopher Street resident Adam Masry. “Even in the harshest of weather, I guess people are brazen.”

Police have been circling the historic West Village blocks, but have not yet tracked down the truck or the suspect on a day when it’s not easy to get anywhere fast.
