Default Yet Another reason for Concealed Carry

White family stops for gas, wakes up in hospital. But not a hate crime - of course.

And I'll keep my standard sized magazine, thank you!

This country's as screwed as screwed can be. Remember when Miami marked the bad exits to save the tourists from jungle death?

Marked exists? What exactly did they read?

One has to wonder what would have happened had the situation escalated to gunfire. Wonder how many of the perps had weapons as well. It would suck to be in that situation for sure.

Wonder if any charges would have been filed against the white family had they capped all the aggressors.

It's only a hate crime when whitey is the aggressor.

I grew up in Miami, but moved out in early '70s, go back as little as possible, so this is (somewhat) hearsay. Maybe a local can confirm or correct me.

My parents remained until mid '90s and told me that after a rash of tourist murders that stemmed from taking "bad" exits...

for examples, see http://www.miamibeach411.com/news/dead-german-tourist

...the locals put stickers on the signs for the bad exits, and publicized their meaning through tourist information outlets. I'm guessing they were the functional equivalent of a skull & crossbones.

When certain Professional Whiners (you know who, they were out in force in Sanford last year) realized that there was one connecting characteristic of the neighborhoods served by the "bad" exits, they raised a stink. The locals, ever willing to please, removed the warning stickers, and instead, put "sunshine face" stickers on exits it was considered safe to use.

Sure enough, the PW's caught on to this subterfuge, and noticed that these stickers pointed out exits that lacked the same characteristic that inspired the danger stickers. The sunshine stickers were then covered with FDOT green square stickers, about 1' square. I have personally seen these signs - you could see the outline of the sunshine sticker underneath.

OK, Miami locals - anyone remember this? Early to mid 90's IIRC.

Be sure to read the "examples" link I posted. Fascinating tales, told succinctly.

Can't possibly be a hate crime, the victims aren't Black or Hispanic....

Damn shame some Barnard Goetz doesn't decide to frequent the gas station, oh around 10 pm for the next couple of weeks. Would be a f*cking tragedy if these savages were gunned down.

Part of carrying concealed is minimizing risk, this guy failed that test.

Pink shirt, fine - but he had to have his pants on the ground.

Ever been in line (while carrying) with a shady character invading your personal space? Yep - you gots to get outta line and find a better option.

Don't get me wrong, I'd have shot 'em all....but I avoid that as much as possible ;-)

Exactly, always a double standard.

I'm not sure there was much he could do once inside the store with the assholes. When there's three black aggressors intent on beating whitey, his wife and his daughter then options are limited, esp when NOT carrying. Possibly could have reconsidered his choices of stations upon seeing the environment once he pulled to the pump.

I agree damn bastards should be shot ! But I also have to say people have to be aware of their surroundings . You can't be ignorant this day in age. I carry, but I am also aware of the area I am in and the people I see .
