Washington is, aside from California, one of the craziest liberal states in all of the United States. This incident that just recently occurred highlights this very clearly.
Most Americans would argue that if a man comes into your home and tries to rob you, with an armed gun, you have every right to shoot him and protect your life and your family’s life. Yet, apparently, Washington liberals can’t seem to understand this.
On March 25th, 2016, the 31 year old store owner asked a group of loitering thugs to leave his door. While he was outside, the 21-year old Jakeel Rashon Mason tried to steal cigarettes from behind the counter.

A fight ensues—Min Sik Kim, the store owner, engages in a brawl with Mason, which culminates in Kim shooting Mason in the back as he runs away. The shot killed the 21-year old shoplifter, and Kim has been sentenced to 8 years in prison for this “crime,” of protecting his store.
Daily Mail reports:
“Mason went into the store last week after Kim went outside to tell a group of loitering men to go away, prosecutors say.”
“Surveillance video shows Mason trying to steal cigarettes behind the counter and Kim pulling out a gun as he walked back in, according to authorities.”
“Mason put his hands up and Kim backed him up against a shelf inside the store, the prosecutor statement’s say.”
“Then, Kim tucked the gun into his waistband and punched Mason in the face, prompting a brief struggle as Mason tried to get away, according to the prosecutors’ account.”
“Mason ran towards the door and grabbed a pack of cigarettes on his way out, authorities say.”
“That is when, according to prosecutors, Kim got up from the ground, pulled his gun from his waistband and shot him twice in the back.”
Kim had said that he feared for his life, prior to the confrontation, and claimed that the thug had pushed him to the ground and tried to grab the pistol.
“It was going to be either me or him, and I don’t want to leave my family behind,” he said. Many Americans are furious at the liberal judge’s decision to sentence a hard-working business owner to 8 years in prison, for defending his property against a low life thug.
In fact, just two months ago, the store owner’s wife was in the stomach by an armed robber—Tyrone Prophet Jr.
The man stormed into the store, with his gun cocked and loaded, and demanded that the store owner’s wife hand over the cash. She reached for her pistol and they exchanged shots, but unfortunately, she ended up in the hospital.
“We know that just the previous month his wife was shot during a robbery,” an investigator told Fox News. “We understand that probably leads to high emotions,” he said.
“But if you’re going to carry a weapon you have the responsibility of carrying that weapon. We can’t have shoplifts turn into homicides.”
WOW! What great liberal logic, am I right? It isn’t the poor little scumbag’s fault that he robbed the store, it was the store owner’s fault for defending himself! These liberal nut jobs always side with thugs, scum, and low lives, because they hate competent, hard-working, Americans.
