Lunchtime Quickie: Who Needs a Gun (When You All You Need Is a Hammer!)

Posted by on Tue, Mar 11, 2014 at 12:30 PM

I love this man, George Bradford. And I love that he protected his ladies—including his mother, his daughter, and his granddaughter. Don't fuck with a Detroiter. Not even a grandpa.

Branford, who said he also owns a 12-guage shotgun, said he wouldn’t hesitate to use force again if an intruder ever stepped foot inside his home.

“I don’t want to kill anybody,” he told the news station. “But, then again, if I have to — then, that’s what I have to do.”

Sounds like the guy is happy to also have a gun around the house... because Detroit!

For some people in Detroit, calling 911 isn't an option anymore. That's because it takes too long for any help to arrive.

People have developed their own emergency response plans that often involve calling relatives or friends, The New York Times reports.

How bad is it? For the highest-priority crimes, Detroit police take about 58 minutes, on average, to answer 911 calls.

The TV news (FOX, especially—of course) is so un-PC in Detroit. Newscasters @ 2:56 mark "these thieves and these thugs!" "I know, these punks won't go away"

@1: Not really, a woman in her mid 90s who had children as teenager.
