Unorthodox? Sure. But it WAS effective.
Even the joggers are armed in Texas. Consider that your ONLY warning, thugs.
An armed robber was shot in the crotch while trying to rob a Texas man who was on a jog Wednesday.
“While it is still early in the investigation, detectives believe that the victim, a man in his 20s, was jogging to a local gym in the area,” the Arlington Police Department said in a release. “The victim noticed a pickup truck that appeared to be following him and circle in front of him in a business parking lot. The victim reported that a suspect, later determined to be a juvenile, exited from the passenger side of the pickup and pointed a firearm at him while demanding his property.”
That’s when police say the jogger pulled a gun from his backpack and opened fire on the armed robber. He hit the robber at least once somewhere in the crotch. Officials wouldn’t say exactly where in the crotch the robber was hit.
“We are not going to get that specific on injuries,” Christopher Cook, Arlington Police Department spokesman, told the Washington Free Beacon.

wouldn’t say exactly where in the crotch
Have you EVER heard that phrase before?
NOT it saying makes it somehow worse, doesn’t it? Like the off-camera scream in a horror movie, or that shadow you only see through the corner of your eye. The imagination tends to assume the worst.
‘… at least once … ‘
they said that too. Yikes!
He shot the Punk in the Junk.
You know what’s funny?
In Chicago, ‘shot in the junk‘ is a stat they actually track.
Then again, when you have as many shootings as Chicago has, all KINDS of trends emerge.
