I'm passing this along just as I saw it in another forum I belong to.It bears looking into as this is one thing all us CCW holder fear most,not just what happened,but the results of defending ourselves.The facebook page wasn't working when I tried to click it so it might have been taken down,I don't know.
Hey everybody! Sorry for the crosspost, but I want to alert all of you
to a situation that is going on here in West Virginia right now.
Yesterday or day before, a fellow named Jesus Canul (HAY soos Kuh NOOL
-- nicknamed "Jesse") from Logan, West Virginia, was coming out of the
Logan Walmart store when a fellow came up behind him and grabbed him
around the neck, threatening him with a pair of scissors at his throat.
Jesus has a concealed carry permit, and was carrying that day when he
was grabbed and robbed. He fought off the robber and shot him dead, and
now is being held in jail. He will apparently be charged with murder!
Here's a link to the story, but it hasn't been updated tonight, after
the more complete report. Maybe it will have been by the time you read
Our state's Castle Doctrine law says that anyone who is being threatened
has a right to use deadly force to defend himself or his property, which
is what Jesus was doing. However, the police are saying that the robber
had already let loose and was starting to walk away, so Jesus committed
murder. One of the authors of the Castle Doctrine has spoken with
Jesus, and says that it did not happen as the police are saying it did.
The tapes that Walmart's cameras made will show the truth, but they
have already been turned over to the police, apparently, and no one else
has seen them.
I would like to ask you to please show your support of Jesus at a
special Facebook page set up for that purpose.
PLEASE be courteous, and don't come across as arrogant or nasty, but
please help by joining the Facebook group that's been set up, and let
others know about this miscarriage of justice! Please don't let him get
railroaded for something any of us would have done.
Thanks in advance.
Like I said I just copied and pasted this,but it is disturbing to me as a CCW holder. morayman......................
