Martin Luther King Jr. High
School coach shoots attackers

Police sources tell 7 Action News that a women´s basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School shot two men who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources. The man who shot the attackers was 70 years old, according to police. One of the attackers was found dead in the median

I hope I can post from this source...it is part of ABC.com here in Detroit. And did you notice, the coach is 70? And he obviously "shoots to kill!"

Please post source & byline to our site style. LCom Staff.

A lot more stories like this, and perps would learn a few manners.

I believe that it was John Lott that said "An armed society is a polite society."

What are you telling us? You mean the coach forgot to carry his scissors or push his desk out into the parking lot? s/o Good. These thugs need to assume that every adult employee from a school might be packing.

Oops, this means the coach must have had the gun in his possession while he was on the school grounds. I hope that doesn´t mean he will be charged with that crime...

[OP: no one "shoots to kill"; we only shoot to stop an attack.]

ALA post #5.

Does anyone suppose the perps just wanted to talk with two young, female athletes? Without the coach, we´d likely have some small blurb about to high school girls being found raped and killed. Two more stats for the FBI´s list for 2013.

Finally something positive about about a school named after MLK. Someone should do a study of the average ACT score at schools named after him.

And I´m sure the parents of the girls he was escorting are just furious that he carried a gun while in the presence of their girls.

Why doesn´t someone ask them how they feel about it?

I have to disagree, OP. The way I read this, the coach shot to stop the threat. He succeeded.

And #5 has it right: the recidivism rate here is now zero (0).

Just as in a real life situation, the police AND Media show up a-f-t-e-r the crime has been committed. We see police and reporters milling around the crime scene searching for clues or gathering evidence. Fortunately, the good guy won this fight.

That!! - is why we need an armed citizenry.

It was Chris Rock who said that nothing ever good happens on a street named after Martin Luther King, Jr.
This would be the exception.
And whatever happened to that federal gunfree school zone law?? The coach would have been in violation of it.

Oh, I see. this must not have been a "Gun Free" zone. I mean, if the coach was packing and the perps were packing on school grounds? Right? Just think, that young man might still be alive if the school only had put up a few "Gun Free Zone" signs. What a shame.

Poster #3 you´re right. Not suppose to have a gun within 1000´ of school grounds. However, I think that under LEOSA a "qualified retired law enforcement officer" is allowed to conceal carry on school grounds.

When a brain tumor took away Dorothy Holm´s ability to speak, she picked up index cards and began filling them, edge to edge, with seemingly random, indecipherable sequences of letters. Her grandchildren saw her scribbling and thought she was leaving them a code — but it was one the preteens couldn´t crack. Eighteen years later, the puzzle has been solved after one of Holm´s granddaughters posted images of a card online. In just 13 minutes, a MetaFilter.com user figured out that as Dorothy Holm was dying, she was writing out prayers.

A U.S. Coast Guard heavy icebreaker will leave Australia for Antarctica on Sunday to rescue more than 120 crew members aboard two icebreakers trapped in pack ice near the frozen continent´s eastern edge, officials said. The 122-meter (399-foot) cutter, the Polar Star, is responding to a Jan. 3 request from Australia, Russia and China to assist the Russian and Chinese ships because "there is sufficient concern that the vessels may not be able to free themselves from the ice," the Coast Guard said in a statement. The Russian research ship Akademik Shokalskiy has been trapped in ice-clogged Commonwealth Bay

Supreme Court Refuses to
Block Texas Abortion Law

A sharply divided Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Texas to continue enforcing abortion restrictions that opponents say have led more than a third of the state´s clinics to stop providing abortions. The justices voted 5-4 to leave in effect a provision requiring doctors who perform abortions in clinics to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The court´s conservative majority refused the plea of Planned Parenthood and several Texas abortion clinics to overturn a preliminary federal appeals court ruling that allowed the provision to take effect. The four liberal justices dissented.

Anthony Stokes, the 15-year-old boy whose family said he was initially denied a place on the heart transplant waiting list because of "noncompliance," has received a new heart. Anthony underwent the five-hour heart transplant surgery at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, family spokesman Mark Bell told ABC News. He is now resting and in recovery. "I would like to thank everyone involved, and that we will update everyone throughout the day," Melencia Hamilton, Anthony´s mother, said through Bell. Doctors reversed their decision to keep Anthony off the transplant list on Aug. 13.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
