DEBEQUE - A man who picked up three
hitchhikers, offered them a place to stay and took them home for a steak dinner
was repeatedly stabbed when the people he was helping tried to rob him, police
Charles Harris, 48, was in serious condition
Friday at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, said Janet Prell, a spokeswoman
for the Mesa County Sheriff's Office. He had stab wounds in his head, chest and
A suspect, Harold Scott, 19, was in critical
condition at the hospital after being shot by Harris during the attack, Prell
said. Two other suspects were in custody.
Harris picked up two men and a woman Thursday

KeepAndBearArms.com Note: Had Mr. Harris not
had a gun, he would be dead. Anyone who cannot see that is blind and ignorant as
a boot. While it is obviously ill-advised to pick up three hitchhikers, it is
safe to say that Mr. Harris wanted to help people in need. Anyone who'd say he
was wrong for defending his own life when death was the only other option is a
sick, sick person. Long live Mr. Harris, and Godspeed in his recovery.
