A truly epic fail of the victim-selection process, followed by some stunningly bad judgement. Fla. man shot by off-duty deputies he tried to rob.
Yes, you read that correctly, he tried to rob a couple of off-duty sheriff’s deputies.
According to an arrest affidavit, the deputies say Jones pulled a gun to rob them and refused to drop it after they identified themselves and pulled their guns. They say Jones fired shots and they shot him in the leg.
He is lucky they didn’t shoot him in the head. (Probably they wanted to avoid the paper-work involved.)
Self-defense is a human-right. Not realizing you are in deep yogurt if you try to rob a couple of LEOs is beyond dense. He is really lucky to be alive.
