      No, BigotHog, you’re actually wrong on both accussations. Here is a report from a news source (New Richmond News) local to the area that doesn’t care about being PC and NOT reporting race: “Witnesses told deputies that the suspect in the incident was a tall black male, who allegedly walked away from the scene.” Two points of education for you. 1). being “disrespected” is ghetto trash talk. Knowing this alone, or reading the article thoughtfully, would allow for you to make an educated guess here race. If this was not enough, BigotHog, when race is not reported by CCO, it is highly likely that suspect or guilty party is a “minority.” Hope this helps for your future jumping to conclusion analyses.

    I carry my 9mm everywhere I go to prevent things like that, and It keeps me from from drinking alcohol as the two don’t mix and are illegal together. The gun makes me more aware and much more responsible. Avoid confrontation. The gun does not make me a tough guy just more responsible. I find it amazing how ignorant people are when it comes to carry permits, even the cops. They stop me when I open carry and give me grief until we chat and they get to know me, then all is cool.
