Marine with concealed carry permit stops man from beating woman

WEST ALLIS (WITI) — A Marine Corps veteran was able to stop a man early Tuesday, March 12th from nearly kicking a woman to death. It happened near 102nd and Lincoln, and Wisconsin’s concealed carry law made his efforts possible.

Charlie Blackmore was driving home from work at 4:00 a.m. along Lincoln Avenue when he saw something on the sidewalk. Blackmore didn’t realize it was a woman on the ground being kicked in the head and stomach until he got closer.

That’s when he jumped out of his car and sprung into action.

“I said ‘stop’ and he starts coming towards me and that`s when I drew on him. He started getting closer and I said ‘get down on the ground,'” Blackmore said.

Blackmore held his gun on the suspect and called West Allis police. He says several times while waiting for police to arrive, the attacker moved toward him.

“I mean I’ve already made it up in mind that if he came at me I was going to have to take him down and I told him that. I warned him multiple times not to come towards me because he was a big guy and I wasn’t playing around and he didn’t seem like he was playing around,” Blackmore said.

Blackmore says police eventually showed up and had to force the suspect to the ground. They then asked to see Blackmore’s concealed carry permit.

“I put my hands up turned around and said ‘you can grab it out of my wallet.’ Checked my permit, gave me my wallet back, and then interviewed me for their paperwork,” Blackmore said.

West Allis police say that paperwork is not yet available. For that reason, the name of the attacker and his victim have not yet been released.

“She had a really big laceration by her eye and it looked like her nose was broken,” Blackmore said.

Blackmore didn’t catch any names either, but said the victim told him the man is an ex-boyfriend.

“She was not with him anymore and he had stalked her that day or something and he attacked her on her way to work,” Blackmore said.

Blackmore says situations like this are why he supports Wisconsin’s concealed carry law, and the rights of gun owners.

“We do good things. Not all of us are bad or crazy gun nuts. There are good people,” Blackmore said.

The West Allis police chief says these types of situations really are judgement calls for gun owners. While they don’t encourage this behavior, they appreciate citizens watching out for each other as long as they do it legally and are willing to accept the consequences.

    What does the police chief mean when he states “ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT THE CONSEQUENCES.” Just what are the consequences for doing the right thing and possibaly saving a life?

    ointments … but are you satisfied with the temporary relief they give.
    Why it is that our bodies get into the shape they
    do. Now there is a reliable all-natural way of dealing with this skin issue from
    home. You will notice that this small everyday effort can do wonders to your skin. In 2000 the International Incontinentia Pigmenti Consortium concluded that the condition is caused by a genomic rearrangement
    of the NEMO gene. Vitamin C is well-known in medical world, it can be found as a component of various creams,
    in particular those that are used for face. It destroys the free radicals that destroy your skin cells causing the problem.
    specialties is dealing with unresolved negative emotions.
    Keratosis pilaris could also occur almost anywhere else on the body.
    Allergic eczema creates like warning signs but is due to items such as pollens, dust mites or reactions from pet
    hair and dander. It will usually occur around the back,
    the ears and the trunk area (the area between the back, the neck and the shoulders), and it
    tends to cause quite a bit of itching for our cocker family members.
    A person with vitiligo may also have premature graying of the scalp hair, eyelashes, eyebrows,
    and beard. A yeast infection is easily treatable with over-the-counter or prescription anti-fungal medications.
    The most common type is atopic dermatitis that can affect
    the face, hands, feet or knees and will show itself with itchy
    skin rash that is most often red and dry. When an overall human body is healthy, it simply
    heals skin problems from the inside and radiates a wonderful skin on the outside.
    Also it influences the condition of the skin, especially when we
    talk about oysters and ‘fatty’ sorts of fish like salmon. The
    two skin issues that seem to cause the most problems for our four-legged-friends are
    seborrhea and dermatitis. By following the suggested treatments, your little
    one’s skin will be clear again in no time.
    A skin condition can definitely make you look different no matter what
    that condition is. Once the chicken test was done, we moved on to beef, and so on.
