Shotgun-Wielding Business Owner Scares Off #OccupyOakland Protesters; Becomes Folk Hero

He did what Comrade Obama told him to do!! THEY BRING A KNIFE...WE BRING A GUN!!

When a group of black-clad protesters barged through the doors of the Rotunda Building, faces covered and ready to do some damage, Tagami calmly stepped up, racked his shotgun and effectively spooked the anarchist group who turned right around and headed back outside. "It's sort of the universal 'Don't come any farther' sign," Tagami told the Contra Costa Times.

  • They are not protesters, they are a mob of anarchists who derive pleasure from destroying other peoples property. Like I said before, if they come on my property there will be bodies on the lawn. It's called justifiable homicide, you come on private property uninvited and threaten to other people, you take you take a huge risk.

    • @grindkore

      I totally agree with you, but what if they attack your property from the public street and sidewalk, as was the case with this Oakland property owner?

    • @joe prole They were breaking through the door of that building. Look up "Castle doctrine" in states that it is enacted.

      Once warned and the mob is not leaving you property but instead is displaying hostile intentions which could be interpreted as rock throwing, door kicking/punching, etc. One is clear to defend himself with a deadly force inside the premises.

  • Why the shotgun? They're all peaceful protesters. Just ask Michael Moore.

    Oh, nevermind the spraypain and rock holes in the windows. Fox news did that to make OWS look bad.

    • @sungam Hey asshole. Maybe you should do some reading and find out the reasons people are pissed. People CANT get jobs because corporations send them overseas to save money. People CANT AFFORD college anymore. What part of people on wall street STEALING MONEY FROM OLD LADIES RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS do you not understand? You know what pisses me off? People so stupid they don't even know what the problem is.

    • @zorro869 Standing out in the street being stinky isn't going to help anything, what do you think big corps are going to say "sorry" and give the jobs back?

      Of course they wont, you protest by boycott, refuse to buy anything from the companies you hate so very much. Buy only from American companies that support American people, and give jobs to Americans.

      But that will never happen because people LOVE cheap shit, it's cheap because they get slaves from 3rd worlds to do it for them f More..

    • @zorro869 and the reason the jobs went overseas is b/c the govt got too involved in business and taxed and regulated and supported unions to the point where businesses said it costs too much to use labor here. just one example of that would be when they where building the hotel where I work at they had a union guy, working the elevator, literally pushing up and down all day for $30 an hour or whatever his union mandated wages were. yup thats how i want to run a business, pay a guy $30 an hour to More..

  • Remember! OWS has been blessed by the grace of Nancy Pelosi, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jong Il, Fidel Castro, Paul Castro, and others who want a peaceful(or not so peaceful) end to our Constitutional Rights as Americans, so they can continue the act of dictatorship.

  • These idiots better think back to the L.A. riots. The Korean stores were the few left standing because the owners showed up armed to guard their property.

  • OWS Protesters have a reason to protest.

    They have no right to damage or violate property (private or city).
    Shitting and pissing in the streets, lighting dumpsters on fire, inciting violence, is not the way to get any message across.

    It's unfortunate that when you get 99% of the population together in a confined space, you're bound to get a large amount of crazies. This has nothing to do with politics, but more to due with nut jobs using this public protest to incite useless violence.
