It was the sort of incident that never makes it into the official crime statistics -- that is, an incident in which a crime may have been prevented by a firearm. It happened earlier this month in Irvine.
My brother lived in Irvine for a few years. Don't know about now, but supposedly the lowest crime rates/statistics in the country? A pleasant place to live; Add to it the California weather, and it's win win.
But yea, I agree, strange to find/read or hear in ANY media format, but even more strange coming from a California source. Good find GG Reporter.
I find it well I guess disturbing. It is like the recent shooting in IL at the University there. In the local paper they had a full page spread of the 5 students who died. And dont get me wrong I was very sorry to hear about it. But at the same time a person drove a car at high speed into a crowd of people at a race in MD. He killed 8 people. On the same page as the full page reporting of the shooting of 5 in IL was ONE PARAGRAPH of the killing of 8 in MD by an automobile. It really made me stop and think.
