Man Shot and Killed Criminal, Saved Life of His Abducted Cousin Because Police Refused to Do Anything

Because police wouldn’t do anything to help his kidnapped cousin, a Louisiana man took the situation into his own hands and what he did to free his cousin is amazing.Regardless, this is another perfect example of why our Second Amendment rights are so necessary.

This guy[1] is like an action movie star, for heaven’s sake! but he did the job the local police were just refusing to do…

…the victim’s cousin kicked in the back door of an abandoned house where his kidnapped relative had been taken and shot and killed her kidnapper, according to law enforcement representatives in Louisiana.

Detectives on the case, now after the fact, say that the shooting has been ruled a justifiable homicide by the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Department.

…Sheriff’s Capt. Kip Judice says that he broke the door down and saw the kidnapper stabbing his 29-year-old cousin Bethany Arceneaux. Unable to wait for police any longer, he drew his legally-owned handgun and fired several shots.

Wow. But what was going on with the police?

While that’s great news for the victim and the hero who rescued her, it has left many in the community wondering why it took a citizen to do the job that police claim to be there to do.

So far, the sheriff’s department says they do not want to release the name of the shooter, so we have been unable to contact him for specific comments or further information.

I’d rather have a gun in my hand than the police minutes away by phone.
