HERO: Armed Jogger Saves Woman From Sexual Assault
It was 5:30 in the morning on a dark trail in Austin, Texas when 22-year-old Richard McEachern selected his prey.
Sneaking up on a jogger, McEachern seized her from behind in a bear hug and began dragging her away, his hand over her mouth. He removed the victim's shoes and shorts — and began to sexually assault her.
Somehow, the victim managed to begin screaming for help. Another jogger nearby heard her cries for help and took action.
From The Blaze:
While the left fixates on instances of guns being used to harm innocent people, they ignore countless other ones just like this one, where a gun was used to save lives.
After being stopped by Williams, McEachern fled the scene, taking his victim's shoes and shorts as his prize. As he ran off, nearby witnesses described his demeanor:
McEachern was eventually identified by a combination of witness statements and surveillance footage. He was arrested by police days later and remains in Travis County Jail.
Although McEachern faces charges of sexual assault, had it not been for Josh Williams exercising his Second Amendment rights, those charges could've included murder.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
