Baton Rouge Police said that a three on one attempted holdup ended in the death of one perpetrator and incarceration of his accomplices. According to investigators. The trio was held off by a 26 year old man who exchanged gunfire with the criminals while acting in self defense. The armed citizen reportedly suffered serious injuries in the attack, and as a result, the surviving thugs were arrested and booked into baton Rogue prison on charges including attempted first degree murder and principal to first degree murder. Thanks, Colonel. I went online to find out more about the shooting, but details were scarce. However, I did find that one of the Attackers died at the scene while the other two fled. I'm seeing two disturbing trends these days and self defense. First violent crime in general is on the rise. And secondly, the use of multiple assailants is becoming more and more prevalent. In other words. The gunfight of yesterday is not the same as the gun fight of today. For example, 30 years ago, it was more common for an armed citizen to be facing a lone attacker. But now more and more, the criminals are better organized and working in teams. This makes it a lot tougher for the law abiding citizen to successfully defend themselves these days..

"Fifty six. It's called a bridge too far and it's coming to you today. From the opulence of my office here in my thirty second day of quarantine where I am sitting and staring somewhat fortuitously or perhaps coincidentally where maybe inevitably at the Golden Gate Bridge which was no way a bridge too far. The story is about to famous bridge. Builders maybe the most famous bridge builders of of all time and it is interesting to Stare at the Golden Gate Bridge as I contemplate their contribution to our of our society because the Golden Gate Bridge was And is miracle in my view. Not just because it's the embodiment of form and function. Not just because it's useful and beautiful. But because they built the damn thing in four years. Can you imagine? Can you imagine how long it would take today to build the Golden Gate Bridge? You know they built the transcontinental railroad in six years six and a half years hard to imagine that happening today. Maybe on the other end of the corona virus we will have a new approach to infrastructure bridge-building. Whatever we'll see I do hope we can get back to a place where we can create useful beautiful things more efficiently and effectively than we do. Nowadays time will tell the bridge builders. You're about to meet new thing or two about efficiency as well. The title came from a terrific war. Movie that I stumbled across a couple weeks ago and day. Sixteen of sequestration. My quarantine a bridge too far is the story of Operation Market Garden directed by Richard Attenborough. I found that at two o'clock in the morning on one of the classic movie channels and Watch the whole thing. Amazing Cast Dirk Bogart James. Caan Michael Caine Sean Connery Edward Fox Elliott Gould. Gene Hackman Laurence Olivier Anthony Hopkins Ryan Robert. Redford's in this thing Ryan O'Neal Maximilian Shell two. You'll get sucked in and I don't mind stealing the title because the title itself is still in dispute. It's a quote that was attributed to a British. Lieutenant General named Browning Frederick Browning who purportedly said to the Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery. Who was the operation's architect? This Guy Browning said so with that great respect. I think we may be going a bridge too far my best James Mason. But he was right. Operation Market Garden was focused on taking bridges. Back you know and there was a big push into the Netherlands and the final bridge. They wanted the Arnhem Bridge over. The Rhine was not there to take and so Browning was proven correct. It wasn't factor bridge too far. That are bridge builders and the story go too far. That's up for you to decide..
