We are constantly told, “Just give them what they want, and they will leave you alone.” Too bad it isn’t true. Lewisville store clerk killed during robbery.
The store’s manager said two men in blue hoodies came into the store and demanded money. The clerk, 51-year-old Ashraf Lakhani, gave them cash from the register, but they still shot her.
Violent criminals don’t stop being violent criminals based on anything you are doing or not doing. Cooperation is a strategy. As this case so tragically highlights, it isn’t a particularly good strategy. Being armed for your own defense is also a strategy, but I think it is a better one.
