Earlier this week in Brownwood, TX an armed citizen put his life on the line to stop a bad guy from shooting a police officer.
The crazy murderer killed two folks and dogs after arguing over dog poop in his yard. Police arrived and a shootout ensued.
Vic Stacy, a self taught marksman, saw the officer’s predicament and came to his aid with a few well placed 165 yard pistol shots.
Vic displayed a great feat of marksmanship under intense life threatening pressure at a great distance.
That’s a heck of a shot and it helped end things in favour of the good guys.
A very similar scenario was discussed in my NRA Instructor class, and as a class, we came down uniformly in favour of helping the cop.
What if that disheveled “crazy man” was an undercover Internal Affairs officer trying to bust a crooked cop?
How do you know who’s the good guy in a situation that you just walked into? What are the consequences of you choosing wrong?
