Update on the "Lumpy" Case

It appears that the young man who attempted to rob Greg “Lumpy” Lambert that I posted a href=”http://drhelen.blogspot.com/2006/11/self-defense-tennessee-style.html”about here /a is a suspect a href=”http://www.volunteertv.com/home/headlines/4700726.html” in another Tennessee murder /a (Hat tip: a href=”http://www.knoxviews.com/node/2999″KnoxViews/a): br /br /blockquoteKnox County Sheriff Tim Hutchison says a man who allegedly tried to rob Knox County Commissioner Greg Lambert is a suspect in the murder of a Walgreens truck driver.br /br /Sheriff Hutchison made the announcement today at the commission meeting.br /br / Hutchison says he will ask a grand jury to indict 19-year-old Kane Stackhouse on murder charges Tuesday.br /br /So far Stackhouse has not been charged with anything in connection with the murder of 53-year-old David Lindsey behind the Walgreens in Powell early in the morning on November 11th.br /br /Stackhouse had not even been named a suspect until Monday.br /br /But Stackhouse is charged with attempted robbery for allegedly pulling a gun on Commissioner Lambert about ten hours after Lindsey was found dead.br /br /Deputies say Lambert foiled the alleged robbery by pulling a gun on Stackhouse./blockquotebr /br /Perhaps Mr. Lambert’s quick thinking and act of self-defense saved other victims from further harm. Perhaps my hometown PC alternative rag emThe MetroPulse/em will a href=”http://www.metropulse.com/articles/2006/16_46/editorial.shtml”eat the words they used in this sad editorial /a that described Mr. Lambert as a “clown” and his act of bravery as one of recklessness. What do they consider to be acceptable behavior when confronted with a gunman, groveling on the floor?
