An arrest has been made in the case of a New York Rabbi who was murdered in North Miami Beach back in 2014.
According to Miami-Dade Police, 15-year-old Deandre Edwin Charles was arrested early Wednesday morning, after a 16-month long investigation.
Sources said the teen, who was 14 at the time of the crime, went on a robbery spree throughout Northeast Miami-Dade and North Miami Beach when he ran into Rabbi Joseph Raskin. Raskin was walking to a Synagogue, on that Aug. 9, Saturday morning, not carrying any money. Charles, who is accused of shooting Raskin to death got away empty handed.

It was from Clint Smith that I heard “You don’t know what your attacker looks like” and that is the truth. If we make a mental composite of what we think who a bad guy can be, we are setting ourselves for adding extra time to our reaction gap.

It is the aggressive action and not the image that determines our defensive posture and reactions. Book…cover…judge.

  1. Damn, that’s a tough one.

    Die or shoot a 14 year old black boy in self defense.

    What the media will do to you after that might be a worse fate. They will have you drawn and quartered on live TV to the cheers of the masses.

    You better make sure there are at least a dozen security cameras recording the shoot from different angles.

    It might not be bad to let him shoot you first, in a non vital area.

    1. I posted a couple of years back that CCWers should think about having a body camera. The bad guys and friends will lie and witnesses are unreliable or amnesic.

    2. Die vs. shoot someone in self-defense? That’s not even a little hard.

      If I have to choose between my life or someone else’s, I will choose to preserve mine. Almost every time.

    3. True enough, J Kb, but only if he (or she) looks 14. The odds are overwhelming that they won’t. You will almost certainly be faced with a 5 ft 10 in (or better) tall, thin, Gangsta dressed individual pointing a gun at you while shouting obscenities in your face. It will be only after you put him down that the posed (or faked) school class photos will be dredged up for the purpose of The Narrative.

      1. It doesn’t matter what he looked like when you shot him. It’s the elementary school picture where he’s all smiles that gets shown on the news
