We hear much about the continuing exploits of Florida Man. He’s become the object of a lot of well-deserved ridicule around the Intertubes. FM’s been known to relieve himself in inappropriate places, challenge cops to drag races, stash drugs in unusual locations and can be easily bribed with pizza.
But not every Florida Man is deserving of ridicule (just ask Luis Valdes or Travis Pike). One such upstanding individual is Donovan Stewart of Miami. He was in his car early Monday in Liberty City, Florida when an armed individual apparently tried to carjack him.
According to CBS Miami Steward said . . .
“Well, he opened the door like this and pointed his AK-47 and I reached around like this and got my gun. That is how I did this to him,” he said.
“So I thought you are you going to kill me so now I have to act quickly because I am trained,” he said. “You know I have a security license, I have a G license and I have a state firearms license and a concealed weapons permit and I have a gun and I am a member of the NRA.”
“I am going to defend my life and those I love,” he said. “My family is innocent and just don’t put an AK-47 in my face. I will not allow that to happen. This guy also hijacked a woman in a van and was found with her car key. He robbed another woman at gunpoint.”
And defend himself, he did. Steward shot the would-be carjacker and killed him.
“The guy I killed last night, he put an AK-47 to my damn face,” said Donovan Stewart. …
“I am from Kingstontown in Jamaica,” he said, “and I am not going to go out like a punk. So I emptied my Glock in his chest. This man tried to get in my van while I was sleeping and he was surprised to see what I did.”
The armed man had reportedly carjacked a woman the same way before choosing Mr. Stewart as his next victim.
After Stewart’s quick self defense action, the criminal career of the un-named man with the AK comes to an end.
