Breakfast reading from the True Crime Reports archive: The Robert Wallace case has all the trademarks of a justice-gone-awry tale. When Wallace, 81, saw two men trying to steal his trailer, he opened fire, hitting one of the men in the head. But the person busted in the shooting’s immediate aftermath was Wallace, for attempted murder, while the two suspects in the theft attempt remained free for months. Westword has the story.
Breakfast reading from the True Crime Report archives: “Mike and I thought we did the good deed of the day,” says Paul Shoemaker — and why wouldn’t he? After all, Shoemaker and Mike McGee, co-workers at a Sprint outlet at shopping center, were heading on break when they heard a cry for help from an aging security guard as a shoplifting suspect blazed past them — and instead of ignoring this plea, they chased the guy down, caught him, and held him until mall security and police arrived. Their reward for this heroic action? They were fired. Westword has the story.
