First She Got Shot, Then She Got Arrested

I'm sure she didn't expect her day to end that way. Teen charged in Mississippi mall shooting

That headline should be, "Mississippi Teen Shot by Store Owner After She Draws Gun." The original is a better headline than most I see.

Ridgeland Police Chief Brian Myers said the shooting happened around 5:20 p.m. when Za'Lill D'Chelle Patterson, 16, of Jackson, tried to shoplift from a popcorn store inside the mall. She allegedly pulled a gun on the store owner, who Myers said shot Patterson in the leg in self defense.

According to Myers, Patterson was taken to a local hospital before she was booked into the Madison County Detention Center on a charge of aggravated assault with a weapon. She will be charged as an adult.

The hat tip goes to Ruined Leon, who has an 8 minute video on the story: 16 Year Old Pulls Out A Gun Because She Got Caught Stealing. Well, he covers more than just this story. He covers the whole attitude behind the act, and a case of the looting of a black business. Like I said it is 8 minutes, or so. Grab a coffee. Leon is usually worth the time, and this video does not disappoint.
