We call it “Sticking your dick in a hornets’ nest.”
ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) — When two men walked into a popular country store outside Atlanta, announced a holdup and fired a shot, owners Bobby and Gloria Doster never hesitated. The pair pulled out their own pistols and opened fire.
The armed suspect and his partner were killed. The Dosters won’t be charged, according to local officials, because they were acting in self-defense.
Talk about split brain disease- on one hand, I read something like this and I think “We must be the most bloodthirsty society the planet earth has ever coughed up.” Four people, four guns, two dead. On the other hand, part of my brain calmly drones “If you kick the dog, don’t cry when he bites you.” Who wakes up in the morning and thinks “I got a pistol. I should go over to Shoats’ and stick it in that big redneck’s face and take his money. HE won’t be packing…”?
I have bought biscuits here plenty of times. If I had to make a list of people most likely to have a pistol in their jeans, Shoats Doster would have been right up near that top. Maybe I should publish that list as a public service.
