Spartanburg, South Carolina

Where common sense is still practiced and encouraged.

From "Dumbest self-defense question ever?," referencing an  interview that took place between MSNBC guest host Craig Melvin and Sheriff Chuck Wright of Spartanburg (who became somewhat famous the other day for suggesting that citizens - particularly women - should arm themselves), the following exchange took place:
MSNBC talking head: "If women are shooting potential attackers, aren’t they presuming guilt before innocence? What if a woman kills an attacker? Isn’t that opening another whole legal can of worms?"

Sheriff Wright: "Well, it’s easy to fix that. Just don’t attack a woman."
Wisdom for the ages.
