Florida sheriff encourages residents to shoot looters breaking into homes

You're darn toon'in right sheriff!!! Goes without saying. Yet Trump was ostracized for suggesting that violent looters and arsonists needed to be shot.

“I would tell them, if you value your life, they probably shouldn’t do that in Polk County. Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns, and they’re going to be in their homes tonight with their guns loaded,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told reporters during a news briefing.

Some sheriffs in Northern Illinois would tell people to do anything but this, and cower in their homes practicing social distancing. They're tools.

Liberal Democrap Mayor like Stephanie Rawlings-Blake of Baltimore believes you should give arsonist and looters space to destroy. Oh yes they, the commie dems tried to walk that back but her words were clear. Freudian slip maybe!

Democraps thrive in a world of anarchy and chaos.

https://www.politifact.com/article/2...space-rioters/

Statement from Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in 2015
Quote:
"We’ve had these kinds of conversations before, and I made it very clear that I work with the police and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that the protesters were able to exercise their right to free speech. It’s a very delicate balancing act. Because while we try to make sure that they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well. And we worked very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to de-escalate and that’s what you saw this evening."

He certainly did "suggest that" in a tweet. Were you sleeping all of last week?

https://deadline.com/2020/05/twitter...ce-1202946319/

Quote:
“Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him the military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
He said in a tweet when the looting starts, so does the shooting. His tweet got flagged by Tweeter for endorsing violence and that set off a tweeter war, which resulted in Trump issuing an executive order concerning 1st amendment rights.

There has been positive 2A publicity reported from examples scattered across the country..
The president mentioned it (protecting 2A) in front of st Johns church. Unlike, ‘Sleepy, shoot’em in the leg’ Biden.
The different examples of people and business owners defending and protecting themselves and their livelihoods. Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Ohio, California to name but a few.
Isn’t it refreshing to hear citizens with AR 15s and automatic weapons etc mentioned in a good light, which they were. WE here on the forum don’t need any reinforcement.
But, I think its good for the public who are indifferent or anti 2A to get a refresher course in reality as to why its there. ( defend against tyranny and anarchy).

I'll smile more when they rollback federal - and state - idiocies. I don't really care for the "stroking" they are offering: it makes me expect the other shoe to fall.

Law enforcement is a business that's flush with work. Now is the time to refer some of that work to others.

Polk county is next to my county. Grady Judd is a great Sherrif . Years ago when a reporter smartly asked him why officers shot a drug dealer who killed a police officer 79 times he answered, because they ran out of bullets. Classic.

Gotta admit I liked the good sheriff's message. It was simple, understandable, and laid out the ground rules for folks on both sides of the fence. Innocent folks...you have the right to defend your homes and property. Thugs...you have the right to get shot for breaking the law. Protesters, we understand and we're with you. But keep it peaceful.

A message for everyone!

Grady Judd is a legend in Central Florida. Stands behind the law and his deputies and lets the public know what will happen to law breakers in no uncertain terms.

Encourages shooting looters breaking into homes?

I'm not sure how to read that. It could mean two different things.

But I think he meant that shooting is a good response IF home-looting was to happen.

Not that it IS happening.

Because I don't think any homes are currently getting looted there.

Plus, what is looting anyhow? If my truck got sneakily & quietly burgled tonight by a typical scumbag I would not call it a looting.

That's just common crime. An Auto Burglary.

Now if my truck was burgled tonight by an angry group that was yelling & throwing stuff, I would call that looting.

Like the thread about the gunshop owner shooting some dudes that tried to rob him.

Not sure if that was a "Looting" or just an attempted armed B&E burglary. As we would have called it two weeks ago.

I think there's a difference. Although the response should be the same, of course!

Btw, I own, and have competed in, a racing car.

But am I really a RACE CAR DRIVER? Would I put myself as a RACE CAR DRIVER on a dating site profile?

No. Though technically correct, I'm no race car driver.

And not every thief is a looter. Or every dumba** at a riot a Terrorist.

And a threat is still a threat - to property or life. Plug 'em.

How do you kill "a police officer 79 times"?

I'm assuming you misread the sentence and not just being facetious. The perp shot and killed a police officer. When deputies cornered him, he resisted and was shot 79 times by the deputies.

Actually, he mentioned a couple of things, breaking into homes to steal things and to set fires. He was referencing the exact types of things we've been seeing at protest cities. His message to rioters/looters was simple, "you might want to consider the risks before you break into the homes of my residents/constituents."

f1racefan---------- We have those riots/protests here. Very bad ones. But to my knowledge there has been no burning or looting of private residences.

Now if somebody breaks into my home "in protest" or otherwise, they are probably getting shot.

But is Home Looting / Home Arson happening right now? All I've seen are businesses being targeted.

Some of the rioters were caught on news cameras stating the suburbs were next.

True... plus in Florida, arson is considered a "Forcible Felony" which allows an armed citizen to use SYG doctrine and shoot. Its one of several types of felonies in which the use of lethal force is justified. The theory is that an arsonist can set fire to an occupied dwelling and that a large uncontrolled fire could kill (dozens of) innocent people.
