Conceal Carry Pastor Spares Assailant While Thwarting Robbery (Activist Post)
Thursday October 24th, 2013
Not only does this preacher pack heat but he packs a lot of love for his fellow man - even a would-be robber. He walked into an Evansville, Indiana Dollar General store for a Gatorade and stopped Jermaine Marshall from continuing to beat up the clerk and use a fake weapon to rob him. It was spoon with a covering and he had told the pastor to get on the ground. Pastor Carl Sanders took the risk and pulled his pistol out, saying, "No, you get on the ground" and "I'm doing this out of love."
Isn't it interesting how a citizen can defuse the situation without using lethal force? What no one else is really saying is that the criminal who didn't carry an actual weapon is only alive thanks to this pastor who is planning to visit the man he halted, now in custody.
Maybe that isn't great news to some, but chances are, he would not have gotten that second chance with a police encounter.
