Furious this man applied for a gun permit. On December 22 1984 this man took a stance shooting and wounding four
teenage thugs attempting to rob him. Bernhard Goetz acting in self defense took matters into his own hands by
drawing pointing and shooting his smith and Wesson 5 shot 38 revolver. He was only charged with illegal possesion of a gun.
No one feared riding the subways for years to come.
One of the assailants left paralyzed sued for millions and Bernhard immediately declared bankruptcy.
Subway riders finally felt a sense of relief instead of fear.
Bernhard became a local hero, bumper stickers " Bernie Goetz the job done " circulated.
Locals credit him for the sudden reversal of crime in the subways and at 71 years of age lives a quiet life
in the same Manhattan Union Square Apartment spending his free time nursing squirrels.

Dare not drench him with " it's only a bucket of water." ........... dang ......
Amen. I also recall, and am thankful, for the Guardian Angels during that time. Very often, I have no doubt, they had discussions with muggers onboard where the latter learned the "error of their ways".

Why would you be stunned? Hes probably on welfare, has 3 baby mommas, and committed multiple felonies and misdemeanors.

The usual suspects will blame guns and not the culture that breeds this.

Kudos to those officers and here's to them making through their careers safely.
Earned more respect? Considering the impossible constraints the NYPD has to work within, it's not the officers' fault. But earned more respect?

Exhibit ZZ9999 for the display case examples of the upside down world in which the left dwells.
