Retired detective Rich Kinsey wrote a post today about other experiences he's had in Southeast Michigan including one where they were investigating some break ins in a parking lot:
"While we were going back through a huge parking lot to figure out how many cars he entered or attempted to enter, one of the detectives opened a Jeep with a broken window to look for signs of theft and the registration. Unbeknownst to us, the car was equipped with a remote alarm that sounded in the owner’s apartment. The owner came out on his third floor landing and began firing a 9mm handgun at the plainclothes investigators in the parking lot."Perhaps when you go to get a handgun permit, they should also give you a common sense quiz. Person that would be denied for a gun? Commenter cinnabar7071 who writes (with spelling mistakes left in):
"I guess this is what happens when the police can't handle their business. If the guy would not have been drunk I would be all for citizen involvment, including shooting at the feeing felon."
