Suspects Drag Woman Across Parking Lot Before Onlooker Forces Them Out of Car with his Gun

Opposing Views – by Lina Batarags

Two people who attempted to steal a 30-year-old mother’s purse in a Texas parking lot ended up dragging the woman across said parking lot.

Fortunately, an onlooker who had a weapon concealed on his person saved the mother from both robbery and from potential injury.

Brenda Vasquez, manager of a Houston Family Dollar store, witnessed the incident.   

“This lady opens her car door, grabs the woman’s purse and they reverse,” Vasquez described. “While they’re trying to reverse, the lady is holding on to her purse still, chasing them all the way to the middle.”

At that point, the armed stranger came to the mother’s rescue. Vasquez said that the “good Samaritan came out, drew his weapon and scared them.”

But he didn’t stop there: the man pulled the would-be thieves, 34-year-old Shamarion Diana Brooks and 48-year-old Jesse Leroy Grace, from the car, forced them to lie on the ground, and stood over them until police arrived on the scene.

Both suspects were arrested by the Houston Police Department. Brooks faces felony charges of possession of an unlawful substance and robbery by threat; Grace has been charged with felony counts of unauthorized use of motor vehicle and robbery by threat.

As police department spokesman John Cannon said, the man who held the suspects until officers could arrive is a witness in the case, and therefore, his identity is not being released.

Cannon neither praised nor condemned the man for his actions in the parking lot, noting instead that “the citizen did what he thought was right at the time.”

Police examined the man’s gun and returned it to him. After the incident occurred, he bought some candy for his children, and drove away.

  1. Only a couple of stupid nig nogs would rob someone at a dollar store. Typical. Now you can see Clippers owner Mr. Sterling was right after all not wanting to be associated with these people.

    1. That was my first thought as well. Usually the police gun down everyone first because they “feel threatened”.

    2. Yea, exactly! If that was me, I would either be shot or thrown to the ground and tasered. The cops never listen to anyone’s story until everyone, including the victim is on the ground and handcuffed, so they can beat it out of them. I know from experience.

      What’s up with that? Are these guys off-duty cops or something? Why the hell would they call the police anyways? They’re lucky they didn’t get killed by the cops.

      Remember the concealed carry holder guy in the false flag mall shooting incident who was thrown to the ground and arrested for trying to help last year?

      Guess since this wasn’t a publicized false flag op, then it’s OK. But if it was, it would have been open season on anyone not in uniform.

      I see how it is. Gotta make it look good for the press and the CIA government propaganda.
