  • What a great Sheriff

    http://www.wyff4.com/r/29638219/detail.html

    What a great guy! I hope he is a member of this forum because I would drive to S.C. and buy him a beer! We need more like him!

    SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -- The Spartanburg County Sheriff is known for speaking his mind, and at a news conference on Monday, he didn't hold back his anger and frustration after a woman was attacked in a park over the weekend.

    Investigators said 46-year-old Walter Lance grabbed a woman who was walking her dog in Milliken Park on Sunday afternoon. They said Lance choked the woman, made her take off her clothing and tried to rape her. (Full Story)

    Lance is in custody and was denied bond on Monday.

    Sheriff Chuck Wright opened his news conference by saying, "Our form of justice is not making it," and he said, "I'm really aggravated."

    He said, "Carry a concealed weapon. That'll fix it."

    Wright said Lance had been charged numerous times with crimes again women, and other crimes such as resisting arrest and escape. Wright said Lance had been on probation for a federal gun charge.

    He referred to Lance repeatedly as an "animal," and expressed his disgust about Lance's long record and the attack.

    He said Lance "doesn't fight police or men folk -- he just goes after women." He said Lance is not married because, "No woman can stay married to him because he beats them down too much."

    Wright said, "This is a horrific crime … her life was threatened so many times."

    Wright said he knows "liberals" don't think you can just keep people in jail, but that Lance "should not have the right or opportunity to violate a good, upstanding woman."

    Wright said, "It's too bad someone with a concealed weapons permit didn't walk by. That would fix it." He said people are tired of doing the right thing and criminals getting away with their actions.

    He said several times, "I want you to get a concealed weapons permit."

    Wright said, "I'm tired of looking at victims saying, 'There's life after this' … I'm tired of saying, 'We're sorry, we can't keep them in jail.'"

    Wright said in his view gun control is, "How fast can you can get the barrel of your gun back on the target?"

    Wright said the attack is not the fault of Millken Park. He said, "It's a nice place for families."

    He said officers patrol the area all the time and respond to various calls there. He said, "Don't blame anyone for having an animal on their property … We can't get it all."

    He encouraged women to walk in groups, and he ended by saying again, "I want you to get a concealed weapons permit. Don't get Mace. Get a firearm."

    And then he said, "I think I better stop before I get sanctioned."

        no not really.
        Buy a gun...buy a gun. that's all people say. The truth is if you don't have the mental toughness to use a gun, you're just gonna get it taken away from you. A timid person with a gun isn't any safer.

        What are the statistics on people who get shot by someone else with a a gun they themselves bought?

          Not just the mind set, but also some basic training too. Or some pepper spray, though I personally like the results of the former more.

            While I like his mindset, he just gave a defense attorney PLENTY of ammo for a mistrial.

              How so? Everything he said was after the fact of the alleged crime. Whether or not he's speaking his mind to get votes or lack thereof for the next election is another thing.

                Why is it acceptable for you to be an idiot, but not acceptable for me to point it out?
