[54-year-old Deric Ford, Sr.] complied with the robbers’ demands, giving the men all the money from the cash register, but they shot him in the head before leaving the store, detectives said.

“Just give them what they want” is a strategy promoted by the Left. It is not a guarantee. As you can probably guess, I don’t think it is a particularly good strategy.

Cooperation with criminals supposes that violent criminals will stop being violent criminals because of something are doing or not doing. That isn’t how it works. You can’t stop them from being violent, anti-social persons. You don’t have that kind of control.

A gun may not have saved this man. There are no guarantees in this life except death and next winter’s snow. But just doing whatever they asked didn’t make him safe either. Unfortunately most people – even if they are inclined to defend themselves – are disarmed by corporate policy while at work. (I don’t know it that was the case here or not.)
