    Some of you expressed an interest to be updated as this case progressed so I thought I would stop in and let you know that Shane Roush was sentenced to 25 years in exchange for a guilty plea yesterday. He still faces two federal charges with each carrying 10 to life.

    Just read your story for the first time, amazing presence of mind to make that shot. If ever in that position, I hope to do as well. Glad this scum got some time in prison, may they be miserable ones.
    Prayers are with you
     
  6. Really. 25 years the shooting seems like a gift...:steamed:

    So, after being hit 4.5 times by RIFLE fire, you won the gun fight with a pistol, one handed, from a distance of 50 yards??

    You sir, are a BAD ASS. I hope your recovery progresses and you return to your life as it was, or better.

    You are a true street warrior. :patriot:

    Hope him and his scumbag wife enjoy prison.

    Godspeed, my brother, Godspeed.

    If there is anything we can do for you here, please let us know.

    A hat-tip to you for your courageous ability to forgive the worthless sack of protoplasm.

    At least he won't be eligible for early release.

    Prayers for your continued healing.

    You took 4 rifle rounds and were able to return accurate fire and disable the BG? You, SIR, are a BAD AZZ WARRIOR!! You had the will to win.

    Thank you for your service and you'll be in my prayers for a painless and speedy recovery.

    I hope the bg never gets out of jail.

    I hope your recovery goes well.

    Goes to show though that the fight isn't over when the first person gets hit, you need keep fighting until the threat is over.

    Well to be honest I hope he catches a shank in the liver on his first day of prison, but the judges in my area are known for "hug a thug" light sentencing, even in serious cases.

    And to the OP, you are a fighter, good luck with your recovery.

    Well, he probably did it strong-handed. And without a hat, so it shouldn't count. :cool:


    My respects to you, Sparkster. I hope your story is being used as an exemplar for our new cops.

    Thank God for you sir, and Him for giving you strength to finish the battle.

    Although it would not have bothered me for the bg to be killed as a result of his foolishness, it is good that he will see prison for a long time to come.

    Should you believe it, you sir I believe can achieve it with God's help; whether going back to law enforcement, going on to work in Christian ministry, perhaps you could do both. We need more people of your calibre in both areas of work.

    Heal well sir, and God bless you and yours regardless of which path you follow later after your healing.

  17. If there's karma, that sounds about right, after he gets gang-raped in the shower...

    Hat's off to you Sparkster for staying in the fight and prevailing!
