Via No Looking Backwards, today’s Hero of the Day hails from the beautiful state of Tennessee…which I quite dreadfully miss now that I live about 900 miles away from it, by the way. I know you were wondering. Anyway:
According to Dist. Atty. Gen. Mike Dunavant, David Fleming charged into the home of two women at about 3 a.m.
Fleming bound the women but one escaped and ran to a nearby home. Dunavant said Fleming, who lived in Munford, intended to rape the women.
The woman who escaped went to the nearby home of Keith Ingram for help, Dunavant said.
The woman who worked to escape is also a hero, mind you, for not being content to be a victim. Back to our tale:
Ingram, carrying a .40-caliber handgun, ran to the house and found Fleming attacking the other woman, officials said.
When Fleming tried to attack Ingram, Dunavant said Ingram shot Fleming once.
Because one shot is all it takes with a .40 caliber weapon, people. In like a finger, out like a fist…
Tipton County Sheriff’s deputies and Brighton Police officers found Fleming dead on the front porch of the home.
Please stand with me now, people, and let’s give a nice round of applause to Mr. Ingram for subtracting a nasty goblin from the gene pool. Nice shootin’ Tex.
