Northside man arrested in incident on Rankin Drive

(Florida armed citizens quell mad driver)

By Dan Scanlan
Staff writer

A 28-year-old Northside man was arrested Sunday on two charges of aggravated battery after police said he rammed two people with his car in the 1800 block of Rankin Drive, then was shot at by a neighbor until he drove away.

Police said a woman was dumping leaves over a fence at 4:30 p.m. when a car accelerated at her and pinned her to the fence. The 33-year-old woman said she pounded on the window and the driver fled, only to hit a 55-year-old man a few doors away, pinning him against a house and breaking his leg, then hitting him again.

The woman ran inside and told her father, who came outside with a handgun looking for the driver and saw his 55-year-old neighbor crawling on his grass pleading for help, then saw the driver walking toward him and another neighbor, who also armed himself.

When the driver refused to stop, police said, a warning shot was fired into the ground, at which time he jumped into his car and headed for the father, who fired more shots into the man's front and rear tires before the man fled.

Police said they found the man in the 5100 block of Martha Ann Drive and arrested him.

[Let's just be glad the neighbors didn't have to search for a key to unLOCK their guns!! There is no telling how this would have gone had armed citizens not stopped this madman.]

I do believe that where there is a choice only between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence. Thus when my eldest son asked me what he should have done had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908 [by an Indian extremist opposed to Gandhi's agreement with Smuts], whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defend me, I told him it was his duty to defend me even by using violence. Hence it was that I took part in the Boer War, the so-called Zulu Rebellion and [World War I]. Hence also do I advocate training in arms for those who believe in the method of violence. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor. Mohandas K. Gandhi, Young India, August 11, 1920 from Fischer, Louis ed.,The Essential Gandhi, 1962
