Here's an article about a cop getting beaten down and being saved by an armed citizen.

http://www.wafb.com/Global/story.asp?S=4527526

From the article:
Officer Brian Harrision was escorting a funeral procession Friday when he pulled Temple over and wrote him a ticket for breaking into the procession. According to Phares, that's when Temple attacked Harrison. Police say Perry Stevens was walking outside of the Auto Zone on Greenwell Springs Road when he heard Harrison yelling for help. Harrison was reportedly on his back with Temple on top of him. That's when Stevens went to his car and grabbed his .45 caliber pistol.

According to Col. Greg Phares, "[Mr. Stevens] orders Mr. Temple to stop and get off the officer. The verbal commands are ignored and Mr. Stevens fires four shots, all of which struck Mr. Temple."

Perry Stevens fired four shots into Temple's torso. Officer Harrison had already fired one shot into Temple's abdomen. With Temple still struggling with the officer, Perry continued to advance toward the scuffle.

"He again orders Mr. Temple to stop what he was doing and get off the officer. Those commands are ignored and he fires a fifth shot and that hits his head. The incident is over with, and as you know, Mr. Temple is dead."
Of course, the police can't actually thank or give any credit to the man who assisted the officer.
Both Phares and Baton Rouge Police Chief Jeff LeDuff stopped short of crediting Stevens with saving the officer's life. LeDuff says the entire incident is unfortunate.
Notice, 5 shots from armed ccw holding civilian. All 5 hit the target, no innocent bystanders hit.

Gun control is like fighting drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to buy cars.

Bet the hero was a member of the Tea Party and Mr. Temple another unhinged left winger.

Wanted to get out front of PsychoZ on this one.

Personally, I have no care as to his political affiliation. Just glad the officer was able to go home to his family that evening, thanks to someone who understands the 2nd amendment.

4 shots fired and 4 shots hit their target. Great shooting! And the anti-gun nuts claim LTC's don't save lives.

Tea Parties are for little girls with imaginary friends

Actually, 5 shots from the civilian, 4 to the torso, then followed up with one to the head.

That Temple guy must have the same pharmacist as Esco!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!
