Where Are They Now - Bernhard Goetz & Four DB's

I'm gonna have some fun and do a series of "where are they now" posts. It's an effort to keep the Constitutional fires burning and gin up support for the Second Amendment. Since the United Nations, Berry Omama, and Eric Holder are pissing all over themselves in an Unconstitutional effort to surreptitiously ban guns - guns will be a large part of today's topic.  This post will be on Bernhard Goetz and the four assholes who assaulted him.

"They brought a screwdriver to a gunfight": On a New York City subway in 1984 Bernhard Goetz was assaulted by four black teenagers carrying a screwdriver. They demanded/requested (depends on whose version you believe) money. Goetz responded by shooting each one with a .38 Smith & Wesson. After having been previously assaulted in 1981 Goetz made a decision to arm himself with a handgun. In NY carrying a concealed weapon is illegal without a permit. And permits are just about impossible for the average citizen to obtain. But Goetz made a conscious decision to defend himself despite the law. Without his .38 S&W one could argue he would be dead today.

With a crime rate seventy percent higher than the rest of the U.S., New York City was one of the most violent cities in America. And in 1984 Goetz had admittedly had enough after his first assault. He did what any sane person would do - he armed himself. Without the handgun to defend himself, Goetz may have just been another statistic in the NY Times.

Goetz was later convicted for carrying an unlicensed firearm. Although he served no time for the shootings he served eight months on the illegal weapons charge. In a later civil suit he was ordered to pay forty-three million dollars to one of his victims. As of this post he had not paid one cent. Today Bernhard Goetz lives in New York City and runs/owns an electronics store. And he has no regrets about his actions.

Where are the four who assaulted Goetz: (From Wikipedia) .....
In March 1985, soon after being released from the hospital for the treatment of his gunshot wound, James Ramseur falsely reported to police that two men hired by Goetz had kidnapped and attempted to kill him but was not charged in this hoax. In May 1985, Ramseur held the gun while an associate raped Ramseur and robbed a pregnant eighteen-year-old woman on the rooftop of the Bronx building where he lived, and in 1986 was sentenced to 8 13 to 25 years in prison. According to the inmate search site, Ramseur served his sentence and was released in July, 2010. Ramseur was found dead of a drug overdose, in an apparent suicide, in a Bronx, New York motel room on December 22, 2011, the 27th anniversary of the incident on the number 2 train.

Barry Allen committed two robberies after the shooting, one of them a 1986 chain snatching in the elevator of the building where he lived. The second arrest, in May, 1991, brought him a sentence of three and a half to seven years for probation violation and third degree robbery. He was released on parole in December, 1995.

After a number of minor arrests for petty offenses, Troy Canty was ordered to undergo an 18 month drug treatment program at a rehabilitation center, which he completed in 1989. He was later charged with assault, robbery, and resisting arrest in an altercation with his common-law wife in August, 1996, but was not convicted and did not serve time.

Darrell Cabey remains paralyzed from the waist down and is allegedly brain damaged from the results of the shooting. Goetz denies that Cabey is as profoundly brain damaged as he claims and is to a large part faking his condition.

If the United Nations, Eric Holder, and Berry Omama have their way handguns and sporting rifles will be banned in America and Bernhard Goetz would quite possibly be dead. And what of the four douchebags who assaulted Goetz? They probably would have live the same stupid meaningless lives and been involved in the same criminal lifestyles. Just a guess.

Barry, Eric, The U.N., Soros, and all the other gun-grabbing motherfuckers can come and get it. It's gonna get real messy when that day comes in the United States.

As for Mr. Goetz, I will raise my beverage to him tonight for standing up for himself and defending his God given life regardless of the elected retards in NY drafting ridiculous legislation like their firearms regulations. Assholes!

Bernard Goetz's attack on black men was motivated on the 38 Geary Line (38 caliber) in San Francisco in the Haight-Ashbury district. He hated them. The blacks of San Francisco complain that their historic presence in the Haight is dwindling due to a constant in-flow of european immigrants. Much like the activity of the males who were on the train, there must not have been much activity in the black areas, until Goetz came along (Switzerland).

I know what you mean. Stuff about your granny are uninteresting. The interesting thing is that for all of the bad things happening to black people, they still don't talk about the U.S. brainwashing weapon. Bernard Goetz is grouped with the Cambridge Five, Jeffery Dahmer, and the Atlanta Child Killer. He may even have solicited the black males for sex. The law community is in bed with Goetz. See, your granny might be in there.
