Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- – On 24 November 2018, at 5783 East Limoges Drive in Columbia, Missouri, Ahmonta Harris was shot and killed. Harris was a popular community leader who considered politics as a career. He was 26 years old. From columbiamissourian.com:

“It takes action to get things done,” he was quoted as saying in a January 2017 article about community members working toward positive change.

He was involved with the plans to create a community center in the city’s north neighborhood, referring to himself as a community leader who knew the area, he said in a February 2017 article.

In 2012, Harris served as a panel member at a Silence the Violence forum in which he shared his experience with violence in Columbia. Harris aimed to be a role model for the city’s youth, he said in an article about residents coming together to promote awareness of crime in the city.

Most people in the United States believe human life has value; most think it is wrong to steal, rape, and murder.  Those attitudes are the result of a long struggle against human nature, to build Western Civilization based on Judeo-Christian values.  It is an outlier in human history. Yet, most of us take it for granted.

The most dangerous people are those who have not accepted the core values of our society. To them, people outside their inner circle have no value, except as a resource to be used and consumed. They camouflage themselves to look like “normal” people. They are looking for opportunities to prey on the unwary.

Massad Ayoob writes, in The Truth About Self Protection, the best analogy for career criminals is werewolves. From page 4-5, in my paperback edition:

To most of you, criminals are as alien as supernatural beings. The best analogy is with werewolves.

Werewolves look like an ordinary person in most circumstances. But inside is an extremely dangerous predator who will kill and victimize without conscience.

Ahmonta Harris was an exceptionally dangerous person. He was killed by his intended victim during an armed invasion of an occupied house. The second story window in the home had been left open 3-4 inches. Harris likely noticed this as an opportunity to victimize and steal. He waited for a dark night, parked his girlfriend's car out of sight of the house, left his cell phone (turned off) and wallet in the car, put on black sweat pants and black hooded sweater, gloves, mask, and black sneakers.

Harris had no adult criminal record.  Evidence was found where he had scaled the outside of the home to access the roof and the second story window. Missouri Weather on 18 November 2018, was overcast and drizzly. It would have been very dark at 11 p.m. The house is in the city; there may have been a little light from other lights in the neighborhood.

According to the Prosecutor's report, Harris entered through the window, accosted the occupant of the bedroom, Deonte Gainwell, and demanded money while targeting Gainwell with the laser sight on Harris' personal Glock 26 9mm handgun.

Records show Harris had purchased the Glock legally in 2017, at a gun shop in Columbia. Most criminals know not to use a firearm that can be traced back to them.  In this case, it did not matter.

Harris' victim, 20-Year-Old Deonte Gainwell, also had a pistol, a Glock 23, in .40 caliber. The bedroom was very dark. When Deonte told Harris he did not have any money; Harris worked the slide on his Glock 26. It may have been meant to intimidate Deonte. It was a clear and deadly threat. Instead, Deonte shot Harris multiple times, killing him.

On Harris' Facebook page, Harris openly glorified crime and lawlessness.

From facebook.com/amonta.harris:

Y’all laughing at them for stealing $1,900 worth of merchandise from Hibbit but I’m low key pissed. I know them muthafuckas had some shit i can fit. I got love for good,fearless boosters. I say we chip in and bond those innocent citizens out. Not all heroes wear capes. They just wear stolen shit. Somebody tell Jabe that I’ll buy all them “one thangs” from em but the price go down since he in jail.

Less than two months later, on 17 January 2019, Deonte Gainwell, who defended himself from Harris, was murdered. Below, he defended himself from accusations he had murdered Harris. From columbiatribune.com:

Gainwell identified himself on Facebook as the shooter of Harris, during what he said was a self-defense killing during a home invasion Nov. 24 in the 5700 block of Limoges Drive.

“I set some shit up cuz mfs ran in my momma’s house thinking I was a (explicative)?” Gainwell wrote in a Dec. 5 post responding to accusations from Harris’ father. “Sorry that it had to be neighborhood hero but he shouldn’t have been in my momma’s house.”

“He was found dead in my mama’s shit with gloves on, blacked out outfit and a mask and gun next to his body,” Gainwell wrote. “Stop slandering my name. Buddy got caught with his hand in the wrong cookie jar.”

The Prosecutor released the report showing the extensive investigation that vindicated Deonte Gainwell's self-defense shooting of Ahmonta Harris. The report was released on 23 January 2019, six days after Deonte had been murdered.

Ahmonta Harris was well liked in his community. His criminality was not well hidden; he openly admired criminals on his facebook page.

We will never know how many people Ahmonta Harris victimized without being caught. It is highly unlikely the home invasion/attempted robbery was his first rodeo. We know Harris will not victimize others in the future.

If you have many Ahmonta Harris types in a community, the rule of law is severely compromised. Private justice, the vendetta, and endless retaliatory violence predominate. Harris did not need to steal to eat. He had a decent job with the City of Columbia. He wrote that people leading the “thug life” should have life insurance, to make their families well off if they were killed.  Maybe he didn't know that life insurance policies routinely exclude deaths that happen while performing illegal activities.

Our society has been exceptionally successful at instilling respect for the rule of law. It is hard for most people to realize other people exist who do not value human life.  People to whom others are simply prey to be used for whatever value they can gain.  Historically, people who do not value others outside their tribe are not unusual. They are the default setting for the human condition. Throughout the vast experience of humanity, the willingness to prey upon, kill, rape, and enslave others outside your tribe, is the norm.

Every human child is a wild animal who must be taught the norms of civilization, family values, and morality if civilization is to endure. We destroy the time-proven institutions of family, church, and culture at our peril. When we do so, we produce more werewolves who do not value those outside their inner circle. In evolution, this comes from the instincts of the killer ape. In Christianity, it is an original sin. The werewolves and thugs are not products of our culture. They are failures of our culture to transmit values that made us the most successful culture on the planet.

“Thug culture” has its etymological origins in the cult of Thugee, which use to exist in the Indian subcontinent. The Thugs did not value human life outside of their circle. Humans who were not Thugs were merely prey, to be murdered and robbed with efficiency, as a religious duty, and as a sport. Thugs would befriend travelers until the most advantageous circumstance were arranged. They would murder groups of travelers with ruthless efficiency.  Their religion required them to murder and steal.

One of the great achievements of British rule in India was the eradication of Thugee.

Inner city gangs are proto-tribes who do not value the lives of outsiders. Neighborhoods from which police are removed see murder rates skyrocket.

To protect yourself from the werewolves and thugs in our society, you need to realize they exist.

    1. You’ve got people out there who have little reguard for life. And the gunbanning demon-craps say you don’t need a gun for protection, just wave a hankie! The apologist say you can’t blame them, they are victims too. Yeah, right. There are people who dont want to work at a job and would rather rob, rape and steal. This is also a problem of over crowded big major cities. And you’ve got people who want to have q0 or 15 kids like the illegals coming up from central America. Also the democrats are anti-Christian and pro Muslim and pro-gay. In the 1950’s kids were taught about God and went to church every Sunday. Now the politically correct idiots say its not politically correct anymore. Parents home school your kids. Background checks = gun registration = gun confiscation = you locked away in a New World Order gun control concentration camp!

    2. People aren’t naturally evil? Who among us had to teach their children how to steal, lie. cheat, throw a fit etc.? Nobody. This nation is one of only two nations that are based on Judeo/Christian values and we have reaped the blessings of that covenant. In 1972 we made legal the murder of unborn children. Now it even goes after they are bourn. Where does that end? Retroactive abortion? We let ill minded people take prayer out of schools, businesses, the courts etc. Fifty years down the road we have children who play video games that teach human life is worthless. Shows and movies that have no life values at all. Victoria doesn’t many secrets left does she? Wrong is not viewed as wrong anymore. Truth is subject to the person’s feelings. ACTUALLY HAD A SOCIAL WORKER TELL ME THAT ONE. These are lies designed to placate the masses to garner votes. Time was when I was a kid, you might see someone get in trouble at school for chewing gum or talking out of turn in class. Just is not that way anymore is it? Single parent homes, economics that force a two parent job requirement, crooked politicians, lawyers and cops and truth being subjective are all part of the growing problem. To take the LORD out of life is to subject humanity to it’s cruelest self.

      Either what we hold to be right and good and true IS right and good and true for ALL mankind-under GOD- or we have no hope of a decent life for us or our children. It’s that simple. As far as legislating ever increasing laws for our safety and security: You can’t legislate morality, it MUST come from the LORD. There are laws that enslave man and there are laws that set men free, Anyone who would disarm the public is either very misinformed or just outright evil. That goes for legislators, judges, lawyers, enforcement, business owners, places of business etc. It is treason and treason has a price. When government is destructive to the freedom of and the rights of the people, it is in the right of the people to abolish it, and to create new government. Please tell me you have heard/read those words before.

      It is obvious that American society is devolving from the righteous hope and promise it once had. If this were 1776, the rounds would already be flying. I want peace, you want peace, most of us want peace but no at the price of slavery, socialism, communism, so said “religions of peace” or dictatorships. If you trade your freedom for security you will neither have or deserve either. Franklin. Freedom is worth living for, its worth dying for, it’s worth going to war for. Ask any vet. What would you do without freedom? Many times, freedom and peace are only to be found on the other side of war. If that battle must come, I will fight it. If war must come, let it come now so that my children may know peace. Many years ago, I swore an oath to defend this nation from all enemies, foreign or domestic. I still live by that oath. It is sad that the biggest of all threats we face these days comes from congress and judges and enforcement. They ALL swore the same oath and many have committed treason against their own country.
      Take away my guns, ammo, high capacity magazines and other gear? Nuts. You’re out of your mind pal. Aint happening, not now, not ever. It is worth fighting for so don’t try. For those who want to walk around un armed, be my guest, but don’t think you have the right to take mine away. If you feel nervous, go see a shrink or better yet, go to Church. It’s what is inside you that makes you afraid. In my world, I define right and wrong through the WORD of GOD. Any and all of the laws of man are subject to and must pass muster relative to the laws of GOD. Anyone who doesn’t believe it can, and likely will, go to a very warm place -that they also don’t believe in-and be tormented forever when they die. That is the truth and it is not conditional on how you feel at the time. Now that you know the truth what are you going to do with it? Be set free I hope. Arm up, carry on.

    3. I remember a story about Someone who told His favored people that they were to enter a new land and they were to kill every person, man, woman and child that did not flee before them. And it happened just like that, for the most part. “There is nothing new under the Sun.”

      1. You are mostly right. It was not someone who said this. The LORD said to do this. HE said to kill every man, woman, child, animal, tree that bears fruit. EVERYTHING. It was a land of idol worshipers, baby/children/old folks killers, goat, donkey and other animal lovers–literally– etc.. Many times the LORD has brought vengeance upon HIS enemies and the enemies of Israel and even the United States for that matter. Many times the LORD has brought vengeance upon HIS own people when they rejected HIS authority, ways and precepts. Sodom and Gomorra are only two of hundreds of examples of this. Those two cities were completely destroyed–turned to ash. You can still see what is left of them today. Makes me wonder what is about to happen to/in America. Seriously. Arm up, carry on.

      1. I’m not disagreeing with them being NPD, my point was the analogy vs Dx. I have some links in the comment lines in the original exchange below.

    4. Unfortunately, political elites, Democrat-Socialists and RINOs, are quick and unrelenting in their use and perpetuation of the criminal werewolf subculture to control the ignorant and stupid masses. The more they can get law-abiding citizens to believe the lie that the government can protect them, if only they cede their liberties and freedoms for a false illusion of safety, the more they can control those citizens.

      Government swamp creatures have one-upped the mob in selling protection to victims in the form of ever increasing taxes and regulations. The government-spawned werewolf class are useful accomplices in the subterfuge that indoctrinates peop!e to believe falsely that their ONLY hope for safety lies with an evermore powerful police state

    5. God’s word tells us Who the battle is really with. Until people realize that Evil exists, they are in peril.
      “Satan, like a roaring lion—-seeking whom he can devour “

      1. Amen Brother Owens. I wore a badge and carried a gun for eleven years, and saw several like the thug in the article. One instance involved a person who would invade the home of another and murder them; he claimed that it was they who had invaded his home. One night he murdered three people with an axe as they slept, and did this just weeks after murdering two people with a spear that hung upon the wall of the home. Yes, they are evil.

    6. Sounds like natural selection in operation. We (our society) has done its dead-level best to circumvent natural selection.
      Sometimes even the “good guys” fall prey to it, but mostly it eliminates the “weakest” from the gene pool. In this case, it worked perfectly.

    7. The fallen nature of man says, “Who am I?”
      ..Let’s ask our selves, “What’s in a name?”

      To answer either question, we must take it much farther than being an example, or a parent.
      The parent, and the mentor, must teach, encourage, praise, and correct; with the understanding that we are in-between our Creator and the child, youth, or adult… (Love the child and spoil the Rod)
      .. Do what we do in order to please Him, and not men!
      (Just wait until the Lord taps you on the shoulder, to tell you that you’re doing the same thing to him, as your child is doing to you!)
      “I’ve fallen, and no one will help me up!”, is the silent cry of the lost.. Those abandoned by parents, society, even schools, etc…

      With out direction, with out purpose, seeking to belong.. Let’s hope they find their way, before they adopt the purpose of the cults, occults, gangs, jihads, extremists! Which little voice will they submit to, or follow?

      How many people have been treated like property, a statistic, a number on a graph, or spreadsheet, … for some inhumane agenda, or Government/grant.. Bought/sold for a pet project, ..for the love of money!
      The blind/unbelieving don’t know what they stumble over. They’ve rejected the truth, or accepted bribes, against the fallen, against those who are victimized.

      Have you noticed the public signs of ‘tugging on the heart strings’ of our President?
      Let’s thank God for Melania Trump!

    8. Anybody that thinks that evil doesn’t exist needs to work a while as a Correctional Officer. You can see the wolves of society up close and personal.

      1. Yes sir. My dad worked as a correctional counselor for 20+ years. You could see the exhaustion in his face some nights. I thought it was just how adults came home from work but being right next to evil five days a week takes a toll in the mind.

      1. That’s not an analogy, it’s a diagnosis. Dx requires a medical degree to be lawful, anology is free for all to give and use.

        1. Actually Dave, Scahaji explained it quite well…It’s Scahaji’s “Analysis (Analogy)” that they are “pathological Narcissists.”

            1. Yes, but you stated “Dx requires a medical degree to be lawful,”
              Even this is not true, however, it takes a Degree to “Establish via Medical Documentation,” and thus “Treat the Diagnosis”

              This is an important distinction, here’s why. People write books via diagnosis and analysis of published documentation. If they had to have a degree to “Publish this body of work,” it would be a violation of the 1st Amendment.

              The short version is; anyone can diagnose something, but often it requires a degree to treat the disease. That’s the difference.

            2. Every evil thing is treated as a disease today….. Some bad dogs just need to be put down.

      1. True. It seems it’s not to dramatic to suggest that our western society has little time left before a stronger society takes the reins. We’re a confused and unmotivated society, spending our efforts on the most far-fetched of causes. This isn’t the case globally.

    9. There’s no information RE: the murder of Deonte Gainwell; I’m wondering here if when one performs successful self-defense against a “local werewolf” the proper prescription is to go medieval on all their family, friends and aquaintances as a prophylactic measure to avoid retribution.

      It seems like it’s either Scorched Earth or move far away. Maybe both.

      1. He was a hero for other, local werewolves. If you live among werewolves, and you happen to offend them by taking out their hero or doing something else, then of course you will be in trouble. It’s a catch-22, there. But if you don’t live in the midst of a concentration of werewolves, you have much better and more ethically based chances. In a neighborhood of mostly decent people, the trend is to realize that there was evil where there seemed to be good, to accept that justice was done when the evil was removed, and little or no reaction that the removal of the evil must be avenged. It is terrible, and always very dangerous, when decent people have to live in the midst of bloodthirsty tribes.

    10. Anybody who has worked with in the criminal justice system.
      Soon realize that there are people who don’t give a rats behind about anybody but themselves.
