A Georgia businessman and philanthropist was shot and killed in a CVS parking lot while he was waiting for his wife to complete her errands inside the pharmacy, police said. Jack Hough was sitting inside his parked car just outside the Gainesville store around 7:45 p.m. when the shooting occurred, according to the Gainesville Times. Police believe the suspect approached the 73-year-old Air Force veteran in a bid to rob and carjack him. Following a brief struggle, the attacker fired a gunshot into Hough’s chest. He was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, where he was pronounced

A producer, a veteran, and a philanthropist deleted from the community, which in turn will complain about being underserved by the 1%.

Also, the usual bias and crimes of omission from the virulently leftist NY Daily News.

Gainesville Times article linked in the Daily News article:
"Police have not yet identified a suspect but have witness descriptions of a black man wearing all black leaving the scene on foot."

Daily News version, as linked here: "A suspect in the shooting has not yet been identified, but witnesses did describe a man wearing all black clothing—including a hoodie and a mask—walking around the parking lot outside the CVS."

Wasn’t he carrying? If not, why not? He was an Air Force veteran living in a gun-friendly state. I feel bad for his family.

My husband told me his 17 year old twin daughters were posting pictures from Chicago over the weekend. They´re up there celebrating one of the twins 1 year dating anniversary with her boyfriend. Where´s their mom? Not reading stories like this apparently.

Be very careful. Parking lots are not safe places to be alone in your car or outside your car.

According to an article posted last March in USA Today Gaineville, GA is number 4 for the highest increase in violent crimes compared to other similar American cities. I was surprised by this. I know that Gainesville isn´t that far from Atlanta, GA (which itself is loaded with near-do-wells, feral humans and the usual suspects) but not far enough. I guess that the tendrils of these social parriahs - the usual crime suspects - reaches far and wide and don´t stay localized. A real shame and loss for the community.

Just terrible for a man to go through so many years of life´s struggles and delights and then end up killed like this.
When they catch this beast of a human being who killed him, we will find out he was recently released from prison on some cockamamy excuse and that he never should have been released and that he has a great many felonies to his record and that he is only 28 years old and the gun he used was stolen. It is so typical because it happens all the time. And what does the so-called "Justice System" do? they keep right on letting these filthy animals loose on the people to do it all over again.

When is enough, enough?

The story has been updated in the local Atlanta media. The suspect has been busted. He is 24 years old. The story is that he and his female were in Gainesville to "look for work." Crime is so bad in the Georgia county I live in the police no longer respond to misdemeanors.

I would not stay in a parking lot the way he did no matter where I was. Sometimes my DH wants to wait in the car. Lock the doors. If this assailant was able to engage with this man, the car door(s) must have been unlocked. The assailant had the element of surprise on his side.

Two intersecting root causes.

First, the black culture of violence, fueled by the endless drumbeat of entitlement pushed by all the black grievance industry professionals like Sharpton, and propagandized endlessly by the Enemedia.

And second, the Three Monkeys social view of so many, See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil. The Enemedia refusing to publish the racial facts is the "Speak No Evil" pretense. Imagining and pretending that you are safe at all times to walk around in public unarmed and unaware these days is a real contributing factor.

Refuse to be a victim. Be aware, be armed and be trained. Sad that is is necessary, but the times when it was not necessary are gone, and history shows that except in rare, short, anomalous instances, the world has always been a violent and unforgiving place.

Be prepared to defend yourself at all times. Of course, if you live in a place which prohibits you from going armed you must decide whether following the law is a good plan, or whether you can really afford to continue to live in a place which is dangerous and where are prohibited from defending yourself and your loved ones.

Life is all about choices.

Where I live, I would not even think to be worried in my local CVS parking lot. I live about 20 miles from Oakland, Ca. So we have bad people around here too. That is not a place you would usually be on guard. What a real shame and loss. RIP

Re #18, when I returned to the area in SoCal where I was born and raised, and began to shop at stores in “good neighborhoods”, I was warned by one of the managers with Savon (now CVS) that the (other) store where I usually shopped was known for men checking out cars/shoppers in the parking lot, then following them home. Anyone who believes his “good area” is safe from this kind of crime is underinformed, thus foolhardy.

#18, your "safe place" is likely only imaginary, a denial of the reality of all places near cities like Oakland.

Talk to a police officer. In many "safe cities" you will find that the local media does NOT report most of the crime because they like to contribute to the phony feeling of safety.

I said to a police officer neighbor one day, "Well, fortunately our (nearby) mall is safe." He literally laughed out loud, and pointed out that there were several robberies at gunpoint in the parking lot every week, never reported in the local media. I was genuinely surprised.

A large mall on the SE side of KC (Bannister Mall) was too close to the bad part of town, and within about a decade, the high rate of car theft, hijackings, shootings and robberies in the parking lot, by the usual suspects, started keeping people away. It closed eventually, has been leveled.
Our mall, about 25 miles away in SW KC area is desperate to keep from following the same path, one key is to suppress the news of crime in the parking lot.
You might be surprised what you find if you check your ACTUAL crime situation.

Here is the smiley face version. It tends to cover over the root cause, but does mention it. There was a Walmart Hyper Cente built nearby after the mall closed, same end.

#22, you made a very good point. Friend´s son-in-law is a police officer.

When discussing a popular local mall, my friend told me that it is a gang hang-out and the parking lot is the scene of frequent crimes, from purse-snatching to car theft or car-jacking. The police make frequent arrests there. It´s now off my shopping list, but I´m betting that if it´s unsafe, so are most other parking lots around here. There has been a trend for malls to hire a security company to patrol the parking lot.

You´d never know it from the appearance of the place, or its advertising.

One by one every city/town in this nation will become a ghetto. Political correctness brought this nightmare. As we type, there are people saying it´s unfair that more blacks are in prison. They work to expunge their criminal records. You can´t give people "free" all their lives and as adults expect them to work for a living.

What was the problem here ? The time. It was after dark and a white couple were out shopping. We have a self imposed curfew to stay safe. I live in a nice small city. Every parking lot here has their own drug dealer.

It´s over 50 years later and the next thing you will hear is a repeated "My boy didn´t do it"

After the shocking kidnapping of a friend a year ago, I decided not to become a victim. Going armed was clearly the safest way to be. Now I make good use of my concealed firearm permit, and carry wherever it is legal to do so.

Below is a video of at least five Brazilian carjackers--Keystone carjackers--who piled out of their own car and ambushed the wrong fellow, an off duty policeman who could shoot. Bang bang bang bang bang. Three down, one dying, the rest bugging out in terror. That´s how all such crimes should shake out.

Empire star Jussie Smollett paid two men to stage an assault against him which he later claimed was an attack motivated by racism and homophobia, investigators in Chicago now believe. The two men involved in the alleged hoax are now fully cooperating with law enforcement, CNN is reporting on Saturday. On January 29, two men ´yelled out racial and homophobic slurs´ while attacking Smollett, the actor told police. One of the assailants tied a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him, Smollett claimed at the time. That narrative, however, is now under serious scrutiny by investigators.

More than 300 parents and children gathered outside of a primary school yesterday to protest against lessons on homosexuality and gender. Some Muslim demonstrators said they would rather leave the UK than allow their children to continue attending Parkfield Community School in Birmingham. Pupils were kept out of lessons for the first hour of the day. Some joined in with the chants and held placards reading: ‘Education not indoctrination.’ One child carried a handwritten sign which said: ‘Let kids be kids.’ The protest comes amid a campaign against lessons on equality at the school, with parents in the predominantly Muslim

Olathe, Kan.—Three Olathe middle school students went the extra mile to ensure every girl at their school had a special Valentine’s Day. Eighth-grader Tristan Valentine, seventh-grader Kyan Rice and sixth-grader Lincoln Holmes used hundreds of their own dollars to purchase flowers for all 270 girls and 70 female staff members at Summit Trail Middle School. The three boys arrived early at the school Thursday with buckets and buckets of carnations.

New York — An estimated 570,000 undocumented immigrants are currently living in New York State — the majority in New York City — may soon be eligible for driver’s licenses. Rallying on the steps of City Hall, elected leaders and advocates are pushing for all immigrants regardless of legal status to be granted the privilege. “The one thing we are hearing from our immigrant communities from Brentwood to Buffalo is drivers licenses are the single biggest issue,” said Steven Choi with the New York Immigration Coalition.

Hours after President Trump appeared in El Paso Monday at a rally to demand border wall money, a massive group of illegal immigrants breached the border a few miles away. Border Patrol agents say 311 migrants strolled around the end of the border fence in Sunland Park, New Mexico, and walked into the U.S., where they were arrested just before midnight. Almost all of them were families or unaccompanied alien children (UAC) from Central America, part of a stream of mini-caravans who have traversed Mexico over the last year, finding holes in American border security.

Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say. While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to

Andrew McCabe on Friday denied that he knew of an effort to oust President Trump using the 25th Amendment, saying he never had “any extended discussions” about the matter and was unaware of such talks. “At no time did Mr. McCabe participate in any extended discussions about the use of the 25th Amendment, nor is he aware of any such discussions,” his spokeswoman, Melissa Schwartz, said in a statement on Twitter, adding that his remarks about the issue were taken out of context. She said McCabe “was present and participated in a discussion that included a comment by Deputy Attorney
