This is what happens when the government that promised to protect you, doesn’t and instead gives freebies to the criminals.
A store owner has been arrested in the shooting of a 9-year-old girl police said was hit by an errant bullet at a Southern California mall when the merchant allegedly opened fire on a pair of shoplifters he was chasing.
Marqel Cockrell, 20, was being held on $1 million bail after he was arrested in Nevada and booked on suspicion of attempted murder, the Victorville Police Department announced Wednesday.
Investigators believe the shooting occurred near a Barnes & Nobles outlet at the mall. Overnight, investigators worked to identify Cockrell as the suspect in the shooting. Cockrell, who is the co-owner of a sneaker store at the mall called Sole Addicts, attempted to chase down two shoplifters out of his store according to police. In an attempt to stop the shoplifters, Cockrell fired multiple shots, missing the shoplifters and striking the young victim.
Stores are being ransacked thanks to the California Law AKA Prop 47 which made it a misdemeanor shoplifting to steal less than $950 of merchandise. My guess is Mr. Cockrell had enough, drew a red line and now is going to prison and lose his store.
Again, I no longer believe that this is an unintended consequences of a bad law, but a carefully crafted policy to create mass public disorder and be able to go draconian after getting more powers
Total Control, that is the goal.
