Detroit Mugger Meets Michigan CPL Permit holder, Mugger loses

Detroit mugger critical after victim retaliates

First please note if you will the biased headling the Detroit Free press assigns this incident - the permit holder "retaliated" by acting in self-defense according to the drafter of the headline at the Freep. No bias against CPL holders there, nope none at all.
A 32-year-old suffered a graze wound to the head but seriously injured a 17-year-old trying to rob him at gunpoint in Detroit early today, according to police.

The intended robbery victim, who has a permit to carry a weapon, pulled out his gun when he was confronted behind the apartment building at 1670 Oakman Blvd. near Linwood Street at 5 a.m. today, Detroit Police spokesman John Roach said.

After an exchange of gunfire, the intended victim escaped with only the superficial wound. But the 17-year-old is in critical condition today in a local hospital after running away and collapsing in the parking lot of a gas station across the street, Roach said.
Result: CPL Holder - 1 Mugger - 0.

So much for the old canard that the criminal assailant will always win any armed encounter or just "take your gun away from you".
