Maine State Police, today, have absolutely no comment on their absolute failure to stop a brutal psychopath from burning, raping, murdering, and kidnapping across the hinterlands of northern Maine.
Brittany Irish, one of five victims of Anthony Lord’s deadly, violent spree, warns others in a public interview after she was shot, and her boyfriend was fatally shot following her plea to Maine State Police for protection.
This is the type of event that signals the fraying of the very fabric of society. When Maine State Police were unwilling or unable to detain Lord following his kidnapping and rape of Brittany Irish on July 14th, he went on to burn down Irish’s mother’s barn. Maine State Police even politely informed him after Irish had filed criminal charges against him – after he raped and kidnapped her – that charges were being filed against him.
On Friday, July 17th, at approximately 4:50 am, Lord blew open the door of the Irish household. Kyle, Brittany’s boyfriend and the father of their children, died trying to get his family to safety. Brittany managed to retreat the bathroom after being wounded but was pursued by Lord.
Maine State Police appeared to give zero cares. Lord even allegedly opened fire on a cruiser when it tried to stop him after the fact. The Maine trooper disengaged and allowed Lord to flee.
Friday, the day of the shooting Irish discovered her mother’s barn had burned down and rushed over with her boyfriend Kyle to make sure her mother was okay.
Irish recounts her boyfriend, and father of their kids, died trying to protect them from Lord.
Irish stated that it was Lord’s fault and State Police’s fault that Kyle was killed last week. She said she just wants justice for her boyfriend and for everybody else involved.
“Police say I have no injuries, and that’s a lie because I was shot first. I was raped, I have bruises all over me.” Brittany said “They’re [State Police] not willing to tell the truth to anybody. They’re trying to bury it like nothing happened, like this wasn’t their fault.”
After the brutal murder of two people, destruction of private property, and the repeated raping and kidnapping of a person – Maine State Police finally said, “okay, maybe we should arrest this guy.”
And they did. Lord is currently being held without bond because he never bothered to even try to cover up evidence of his crimes so Maine State Police had pretty much every scrap of evidence delivered in a doggy bag to their doorstep.
What’s the take-away for this for gun owners?
- SITUATIONAL AWARENESS.
- Don’t depend on the police to guard you or your family if danger is imminent.
- Once the fighting has started, the police likely won’t be there in time to help.
- The protection of your family and property lies with you.
- if someone is so rude as to blow open your door with a firearm – do humanity a favor and remove him from the gene pool.
- Have no mercy on your attackers for they shall have no mercy upon you!
Hopefully where you live, there are competent, capable agencies of law enforcement that are proactive in serving and protecting their population. Maine State Police dropped that ball so hard, it’s broken. So if you’re in Maine – congratulations on your new permitless carry laws. USE IT. Carry everywhere. And if someone stops you and says, “why are you always carrying a gun?” — Refer them to this story as EXHIBIT A.
