Murfreesboro Rises Up

Via[*1] comes this endearing story of Murfreesboro, Tennessee[*2] :

Usually criminals worry about beingcaught by police but in Murfreesboro criminals need to watch out fortheir victims. In the last two months, five different victims took boldrisks in stopping crime.

Tim Davis’ Salt and Pepper Christianbookstore is full of statements that mirror is own beliefs. Fromcommandments to bumper stickers, it all points to character and when aman tried to rob him, he believes he knows exactly what Jesus would do.

Tim pulled out a pair of scissors and chased his robber down the street holding him at bay until police arrived.

“If you roll over and take it, they will do it again,” Davis defended his action.

The theme is a powerful one in Murfreesboro these days.
