70 Year-Old Girls B-Ball Coach Shoots Two Attackers While Walking Players to Their Cars (Video)

A 70 year-old girls basketball coach shot two attackers, killing one, after he was attacked while walking two players to their cars in the school parking lot.

WXYZ reported, via Free Republic:

Police sources tell 7 Action News that a women’s basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School shot two men who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.

Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.

The man who shot the attackers was 70 years old, according to police.

One of the attackers was found dead in the median on Lafayette Boulevard, and the other was taken to a local hospital, according to police sources. We’ve learned that both of the men had attended the high school, and one had been recently expelled.

Police sources say the coach has a Concealed Pistol License and is reportedly a reserve police officer.

    The way is should be. Legal gun owner using his GOD given right to protect himself, and his charges from harm. Since this is detroit, they are used to this so the 70 year old man won’t have to worry if the perps had skittles in their pockets.

    And Obama nor Congress is proposing anything to change anything that would not allow for the same thing. There is no handgun ban on the table. Nor is there any proposal to change concealed carry laws.

    Score two for the good guys. Bet the perps were hoping to score easy drug money. If Obama were making coordinated military and police exercises with the intent on reviving the war on drugs, he’d get bipartisan praise. Likewise if we stamped out drugs and gangs, crime would drop so dramatically, people wouldn’t feel such a need for personal defense. Instead he’s preparing to go to war over gun control.

    JHarp, Doesnt Chicago and Washington DC have handgun bans? or did until recently… Many would if they could. No what would the guy have done if there were 4 or 5 of them and he only had 9 bullets ? They say trained cops miss about 50% of their shots under stress of the moment.

    In other words Liberals are nothing but turd eating garabage and until Obama gives up all his armed guards carrying automatic weapons and semi automatics… I say STFU… eat sh*t and die liberal scum.

    Gotta love it when somebody stupid enough to be a criminal gets what they have coming…. Think his mom will come out and claim her son was a goood boy who never hurt nobody ???? Never been in trouble before or was just turning his life around…despite the arms length wrap sheet.

    In other words neither Chicago nor DC has gun bans. But we all knew that.

    So why is it so dangerous I wonder. If everyone is armed isn’t it supposed to be safer? We need to get those in the inner city armed. There are far too many shootings there.

    Chicago set a record last year and are on pace to surpass that record this year.

  • bigkahuna

    Crime rates are down…they just have a ton of gang violence there and liberals run the city No wonder they suck. Most of those deaths are not from assualt weapons either…so you are still an idiot trying to take away legal citizens rights because of criminals.

    Whether you gun nuts realize it not it is very traumatic to kill another human being. Even trained professionals who kill those who are trying to kill them undergo leaves of absence and counseling to over the trauma.

    So yes, it is a tragedy all the way around. You loons with your Rambo fantasies have no idea of the real world.

    And it seems the liberal talking heads are putting my fuel into the fire. Carrying a gun in the right hands is a plus. And I do believe that if the teachers who wish to carry them are better off for it.

    Case in point. Coach. Good for him. Some here think he took pleasure in what he did. That is just about the most ignorant thing of all.

    With Brown out, GOP mulls Romney energy

    Massachusetts Republicans are desperately scrambling to find a strong Senate candidate to replace Scott Brown, with some even trying to persuade Mitt Romney’s wife or son to jump into the race to avert another electoral disaster.

    The former GOP senator’s decision to stay out of the June 25 special election surprised and angered some Republican leaders, who said it will make it much harder to beat a Democratic opponent without Brown on the ballot.

    “I’ve had several people call me and ask about Ann Romney,” Ron Kaufman, a longtime friend and aide to the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 presidential candidate nominee, told the Herald.

    I really think it’s something to listen to all the useless coments being made.I was in Nam in 1969.Just. listening tocomments I can tell who knows what the are talking about; and who is just a plain damn fool trouble maker. Most with the know it all wanna be big mouth; will be the1st to run and hide when real trouble starts.Beleive me I know the difference. When I was 19 years old; the U S Army dropped me in the middle of the Central Highlands of Pleiku , and Than Nahn. Any one that was there knows what I mean. It wasn’t Rambo, nor MIA, or any video games on t v. I am telling you now. When it comes to real war; if you don’ t know what you are doing, go hide and stay out of the way so you don’t get a good man killed. If you have never seen it you don’t want to. Stay safe and play doolls with your sister; she may have more sence Only the Best of the Best will survive.

    Did you hear, at the very end of the clip, the news anchor barfing out that libtarded BS about it being a “tragedy all the way around” and “it’s unexplainable?”

    No, it was not a tragedy all the way around. It was a TRAGEDY THWARTED, easily explainable by the use of these two words: self defense. You just don’t want to say it and sum the news story up using these words because to say these words would be akin to admitting how f***ing big a liar you are when you spew your anti-gun chit at your viewers every frickin night.

  • John F.

    For those who arw not aware, the courts have ruled in numerious cases since the late 60’s that police do not have a duty to protect induvudual citizens. Self defense is a God given right that no government can legislate away. The founders knew this and sought to ensure our government did not infringe on that right by adopting the 2nd Amendment. If you have any doubts as to the founders intent, I suggest you educate yourself and read the transcripts of the ratification debates that took place in the state houses prior to passage of the Bill of Rights. There is no doubt as to the intent of the founders and drafters.

  • had enough yet?

    Look up ignorant in the dictionary, and jharp’s photo will probably be there…

    What dopes like jharp can’t seem to understand is that in those inner-city war zones, there aren’t any law-abiding citizens left to help reduce the crime. In places like that, the good people have all fled, and everyone left is a criminal. They’re already armed, and they’re all too busy shooting each other to think about fighting crime or resurrecting their neighborhoods. Nothing short of calling in the National Guard is ever going to restore law and order in those places.

    The “law abiding citizen” dynamic only works in places where law-abiding citizens still exist … in neighborhoods that are still relatively civilized, which is the whole point … we want to KEEP them civilized. The police can only do so much, and when criminals begin moving in to an area, the police need all the help they can get. Just ask the Mayor of Milwaukee …

    Trying to explain things like this to people like jharp is an exercise in futility though, because they really don’t WANT to understand. They have an agenda, and it’s obvious that they have no intention of abandoning it, no matter how thoroughly we embarrass them or how much irrefutable evidence we present them with. For reasons which I simply cannot grasp, they’re determined to stumble blindly down the path to Socialism and anarchy and it’s pretty clear now that this society would have to collapse around them and leave them fighting for their lives before they’d ever face the reality of what they’re doing to our nation.

    Of course, our job is to prevent that from happening, hopefully, without having to go to war with them to do it.
