    Saginaw parolee arrested after ‘celebratory gunfire’ on New Year’s Eve

    SAGINAW, MI — Gunshots on Saginaw’s East Side led to a parolee spending his New Year’s Eve in jail.
    About 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 31, Michigan State Police troopers in the area of Wilkins and Cambrey streets heard “consistent celebratory gunfire,” according to Special 1st Lt. David Kaiser. The cacophony continued and troopers pinpointed its origins to a house on the corner of Van Etten and Gallagher streets.
    Three long guns and an additional handgun were seized by police. Police determined the 26-year-old man was a convicted felon on parole. They arrested him on charges of parole violation, felon in possession of a firearm, felony firearm, and reckless discharge of a firearm.


    Anyone want to take bets on how quickly he gets through the revolving door of "justice"?

    In Texas...

    CANTON, Texas — Police say alcohol played a contributing factor when a man threatened to kill New Year's Eve partygoers in Canton, Texas, and was himself shot and killed by an armed guest.
    On January 1, 2020, at approximately 2:30 a.m., the Canton Police Department, Van Zandt County Sheriff's Office, and the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to a residence in the 500 block of Buffalo Street for a reported shooting.
    Upon arrival, police discovered 61-year-old Alan Bates of Plano, Texas, deceased of multiple apparent gunshot wounds.


    I imagine a fair amount of stupid was a contributing factor besides alcohol.

    Two separate stories of stupid actions, no doubt fueled by a gallon or two of liquid stupid.

    Will the parolee stay in jail? Well, probably not, but he should, at least for a while. "Hey, I'm on parole and not supposed to have a gun, so I'll celebrate and shoot in the air on New Years!" What a brain dead moron.

    and the other one is simply a case of a Darwin Award.
    The above post is a reflection of my great and unmatched wisdom. Please revere it.

    "During the party, Bates became highly agitated at other attendees of the party, became aggressive, and made threats towards a couple who were also visiting the residence," read a statement from the Canton Police Department. "The couple chose to leave the party to avoid a confrontation."

    Despite the couple leaving, witnesses told police they attempted to calm Bates down and, after he became aggressive and threatening to other partygoers, he was asked to leave the residence.

    Police say Bates went to his vehicle, retrieved a handgun, and "walked back towards the residence while screaming threats to kill people inside," according to police.

    "An attendee of the party heard Bates’ threats, and saw Bates approaching the residence with the handgun," stated the department. "The attendee then armed himself with his own handgun.

    "Bates entered the residence with the handgun displayed," continued the statement. "In self-defense, one of the attendees shot Bates multiple times when Bates began entering the living area of the residence."
    Good shot.
