The hero is dead; Long live the hero

For those who value the false idea of “equality” in our society, incidents like this cause cognitive dissonance:

Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said Paul Langone, 33, of Reading, heard the screams of Dr. Astrid Desrosiers on the fifth floor of an MGH office building on Staniford Street. Langone entered the doctor’s office and saw 37-year-old Reading man Jay Carciero stabbing the doctor.

Langone took out his gun, for which he has a valid license, and told Carciero to drop the knife. Carciero did not comply, and Langone shot multiple times, hitting Carciero twice, Conley said.

Note the tone of the rest of the article, as people already look for excuses why Jay Carciero’s life should have somehow been spared, despite the object in his hand about to thrust into the neck of his own doctor once again:

Police investigated possible links between Langone and Carciero, since they both live in the same town…

Conley would not say why Langone was in the medical office to begin with, but said he was there for a legitimate reason.

Perullo said, as far as he knows, Carciero did not have a violent past.

To have a violent past, you first have to think about, and then commit, acts like this. Why not stop this person at the first incident, as Paul Langone did, rather than wait around for someone to die – or in this case, be stabbed?

gunsFact is, we can never know what is going on in the minds of the mentally ill, and with an overly burdened justice system, people who begin with lesser acts of violence or threats get off with a slap on the wrist because a judge simply doesn’t know what to do with them. This person didn’t have a violent past, but he showed what he was going to become if left without a leash.

The sad part about this story is not that one sick individual died before he was able to take the life of a doctor dedicated to helping people like him, but rather it will stink of circumstantial when the media is done with it.

If Paul Langone was carrying a weapon but, say, didn’t have a license to conceal it and it was only supposed to be in his car or house, the liberal media will talk about how Langone should hang by the balls in the town square. Sadder still, most people would eat it up. 

It’s important to stress there’s a reason we deputize qualified officers:  so they can jump in when needed, as occurred here.  Paul Langone served an important purpose but no doubt will be attacked for it.

And as sad as all of that is, therein lies the beauty for people who live in realityland: there’s no escape hatch here, no no magic trap door where we can vilify Mr. Langone.

And yet, no doubt the media and people who love its silly agenda will seek to re-examine the idea of deputizing off duty security guards.  I have no doubt the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will have politicians seeking votes by bearing down on police departments with questions like:

  • “How many of these off duty security guards are there?”
  • “Do we have anything to fear?”
  • “Can we have their names and addresses, please?”
  • “They should be wearing badges displayed on their jackets if they are going to run around like cowboys, like that Langone kid did!”

Just give it time.

    There are several similar tendancies here in Israel as well:
    Every low life, fraud, lyncher or rapist pulls through his lawyer the “Normative” card. So what if a person comes from a normal family? We would expect behavior like this from a screw up, but bigger they are, the harder they should fall, not ask for pity because they got cought.
    According to a study conducted in the USA, 98% of all criminal upperhanded are second time offenders. That means most of the offenders don’t get caught for the first time. When we do, we should not let them walk away clean.
    There has been an incident in Israel which even led to the passing of a new law. It involved a farmer, Shay Daromi, who lives in a very remote place by himself, and a young arab from a nearby tribe. During the night, Arabs from the neighboring tribes would bother, vandalize and steal from the farms of the citizens. Daromi had had enough of it, and aqquired a gun. When he saw two people entering his property during the night, he shot at them, one of them was hit and died.
    This is when the media fiesco had started. There were made efforts in the parliment to pass a law enabling people to defend their own or others’ property, similar to the one in the USA. The liberals, leftists and arabs said it was a racist descion, and the family claimed Daromi had gone hunting for arabs in the desert. There’s a conspiracy theory for you.
    Daromi was exonorated of the manslaughter charge, but was trialed for 15 months in prison for illegal possesion of a firearm

      While i don’t promote vandalism or stealing, i think you are just taking this opportunity to garner even more sympathy for your illegal settlement. I really don’t think that a person who lives in a state founded on terrorism (and it’s not a conspiracy theory) British embassies were bombed to put pressure on them, and quite literally forceful occupation gets to comment on the issue of chivalry and heroism. And honestly, don’t compare this Shay guy with Mr. Langone and cleverly lump them into the same situaton, which i think you’re trying to do.. only one of them did a good thing.

      Similarly, thinking with no bias in the situation being discussed, Mr. Langone saved a life and is a hero, period.

      1. Crewick says:

        A state founded on conquest that the conquered found unpleasant?
        Founded on conquest that involved physical force?
        Could you narrow it down a bit?
        Perhaps “a state occupied by those who breathe air”?
        You’d be hard pressed to find a square foot of arable land on earth that hasn’t been conquered dozens of times over…

      2. Ben says:

        Well Tim, I hope this does not become a masturbation circle, so I’ll just lay down the fact:
        A. Daromi doesn’t live in occupied territories, just on a remote farm and had the guts to stand up to terrorism and vandalism in a rather lawless area, it could be another kind of heroism, but I leave it to you to take whatever lessons you want from it.
        B. You should get your fact right the next time, the media isn’t such a good tool of education, and believe me, as good jews we constantly beat ourselves up over mistakes we have done:
        - Under what law do you descide a settlement is legal? Law is only an invention, and as it has been said in the film “Army of darkness” – “Good, bad, I’m the guy with the gun”. History will either way be written by the victors.
        - Only once were British civilians hurt in a bombing which was performed by the Irgun which did not answer to the leadership of the zionist settlement, and they were put out of business just for that kind of behavior.
        - The State of Israel is not occupied (by the law) as simply there haven’t been a palestinian country, only the Ottoman empire and the British Mandate. The West Bank was a part of Jordan and they have relinquished ownership over it. The Gaza Strip was a part of Israel from the start.
        - Should I be banned from commenting on chivalry and heroism? Perhaps Frank Azzuro should be banned from writing at all, after all, he’s Italian, and the Roman Empire had rampaged across half of the civilized old world.
        Things are always simple and clear cut, nothing is black and white. There is this really dumb thing I do, it’s called Thinking.

    All people that have been through attempts to anihilate them exaggerate their victims by several times. While I’m no fan of Muslims, Jews are more perfidious & insidious for going against their own scripture & exaggerating the holocaust to create Israel, as 5 TIMES more Jews chose not to live there, not to mention the many yoridim who leave. Jewish over-representation in Western finance, commerce & every leftist movement in the last 175 years is crass & shamefully parasitic.

    1. Ben says:

      Is it parasitic? I’m not sure, and words such as indidious just don’t sound good. Like any “good” religion, the Jewish one has many contradictions in its own set of laws, and becasue of a stupid religious law system (Halacha) Jews were forbidden from taking part in any vocation involving land outisde of the land of Israel.
      The holocaust is a big trauma over here, and I wish it hadn’t happened just so that Israel could be formed 5 years later (and it would have) only by people who want to be there. But imagine to yourself a group of people used to having their head stuck up their asses (the jews who stayed in europe during the holocaust) who had no place to go and came to Israel as a last resort.

  3. highduke says:

    Commerce & Leftism are parasitic to Aristocracy & its high cultural standards & WW2′s EuroJews didnt have their head up their ass: nobody would take them. Lastly, there’s NOTHING WRONG with Halacha/Torah, only Talmudic laws perpetuating exploitation of Gentile hosts instead of enriching their culture. The problem isn’t Judaism but Jews’ post-Exodal cross-breeding of mercantile & clerical castes producing disproportional numbers of greedy materalistic hatefully manipulative hypocritical creeps.
