They Can’t Understand Why He Shot the Clerk AFTER He Had the Money

Because violent criminals do not stop being violent just because you are cooperating with them. Search On For Suspect After Store Employee Shot In Brooklyn Robbery « CBS New York

“‘Give me the money, give me the money,’” the store’s owner, Mohammed Suleiman, said. “When the employee handed him the money, he takes the money and then shot him.”

“Just give them what they want.” That is what we are told by the Left. If you give criminals what they want, you won’t be hurt. (They never want to discuss rape in the context of that advice.)

Neighboring stores are “on high alert.” Not sure what they are going to do given that I’m sure 90 percent of them are disarmed by New York State. (For their own protection, and besides, just give them what they want…)

Giving the Criminal What He Wanted Did NOT Ensure Safety

That is one of the mantras of the Left. Just give the criminal what he wants, and he will leave you alone. I guess this guy didn’t get that memo. Man in ski mask robs gas station shoots clerk in leg, police say | CW39 NewsFix

The gas station clerk told police that a man wearing a ski mask and black jacket took money from the cash register and other items in the store before shooting him in the leg.

Cooperating with criminals is a strategy for dealing with a violent encounter. At times, it may be the only option open to you. But you should not confuse “strategy” with “guarantee.” In this case, even after the criminal had everything he could hope to profit from, he still committed a violent act. This is because violent criminals don’t stop being violent criminals based on anything you are or are not doing.

Being armed is also a strategy. It is also not a guarantee. But I believe it is a better strategy than doing nothing.

“You got to do what you got to do to protect yourself and other people”

Just give them what they want, and they will leave you alone. That’s what we’re told, but this guy had the money and was heading for the door, when he turned around and came back. GRAPHIC VIDEO: Liquor store owner recounts robbery that led to shooting.

He came into the store with a shotgun and threatened the clerk, who is the daughter of the owner. She opens the register, and he takes the cash. The clerk and her mother then hide behind the counter.

Then, after it appears he’s going to leave the store, Lee and her mother crouch behind the counter and Lee hands a pistol from under the register to her mother. Suddenly, the suspect is seen running back behind the counter. At that point, Ring fires her first shot.

“All I was thinking was ‘Just give him the money and go,’ and next thing I know, I see him back in my face,” Ring said.

Both women were armed at that point, so things didn’t go well for the would-be robber.

She fires at least two shots at him before the video ends. Most of the shots aimed at the suspected robber appear to strike him.

The bad guy is in the hospital, being treated for gunshot wounds.

Cooperation Is Still Not Ensuring Safety

Violent criminals don’t stop being violent because they get what they want. Man accused of killing clerk, injuring another during shooting rampage | WSB-TV

The gun-hating part of the Left is always telling me that if I just give the bad guys what they want, I will be OK. Always in relation to robbery. (Ask them about rape and they either shut up or insult you.)

So this guy shoots and kills one clerk at a gas station.

Minutes later, Nicholson walked into Elm Street Food and Beverage on North Elm Street, took money and then shot that clerk, according to investigators. The clerk was rushed to Floyd Medical Center and is listed in critical condition

Say it again. He got the money. He got what he wanted. Then he shot the clerk in cold blood.

Now I would not be surprised to discover that the companies that owned these 2 businesses didn’t want their employees armed, though that is becoming less true in all-night convenience stores and gas stations. Of course being armed is not a guarantee of safety, but neither is giving the bad guys what they want.

At least the cops have arrested the guy they believe to be responsible.

He Cooperated, But the Bad-guy Tried to Shoot Him Anyway

We are told, “Just give them what they want, and you will be OK.” I guess this guy didn’t get that message. West Side AutoZone manager shot during robbery, gunman at large

So the bad-guy shoots the store manager and drags the clerk to the back to empty the safe.

According to police, the clerk emptied out the safe and when the robber aimed the gun at the clerk and attempted to fire, the gun jammed.

Violent criminals don’t stop being violent criminals because of anything you are doing or not doing.

The manager was taken to a local hospital, and is in critical condition. This clerk must have a guardian angel.

Corporations often have policies disarming their employees. (Pizza restaurants – national chains anyway – are particularly bad on this score.) This is even though the corporate big-wigs dictating these policies will almost certainly never be held up in one of their stores.

Cooperation is billed as the only way to deal with violent criminals, and it is white-washed as some kind of guarantee. It is a strategy, not a guarantee. It is a pretty poor strategy.

Now having a gun for self-defense may not have saved the manager of that store. Being armed for self-defense is also not a guarantee of safety. “There are no guarantees in this life save for death and next winter’s snow.” But you should not be lulled into the idea that cooperating with the bad guy will ensure any particular outcome.

He Cooperated. He Got Shot Anyway

The Left loves to say, “Just give them what they want, and everything will be OK.” Of course it isn’t true. Tulsa Store Clerk Shot In Leg During Robbery

And the Left never likes to bring up the subject of rape when they are giving that advice. But that is a story for another time.

Police say the man walked into the store and pointed a gun at the clerk, demanding cash from the store’s clerk.

After getting the cash, the man shot that clerk in the leg.

Violent criminals don’t stop being violent criminals because of anything you are doing or not doing.

Even the cops are not clear on this. Though mostly they don’t like the “little people” – that’s you and me – stealing their thunder.

“That is the advice we give victims, just comply. And then when they do comply, someone is callous enough to inflict injury,” said Tulsa Police Captain Mike Williams.

The fact that the advice is so flawed, doesn’t stop them from giving it. (And the cops have not caught the guy with the gun.)

Being armed may not have saved this clerk from getting shot. (He is expected to be OK.) Cooperation is not the iron clad guarantee that some, including cops and corporate officers, who will almost certainly never face a robber in one of their stores, or delivering one of the pizzas, or whatever, would have you believe. (“There are no guarantees in this life save for death and next winter’s snow.”) Cooperation is a strategy. And a fairly poor strategy at that.

Despite Cooperation Gas Station Clerk Shot 5 Times

Just give them what they want. That’s the advice given by the gun-hating/self-defense hating Left. VIDEO: Gas station clerk shot 5 times during robbery

“This time he took the money and then still shot the guy. The guy didn’t deny him or anything, he was like ‘here man take whatever you want,’ but he still shot the guy… he is just taking his time. He is just walking around just like he is not scared of anything,” said Mike Singh, the manager.

Violent criminals don’t stop being violent criminals because of something you are doing, or not doing.

The clerk who got shot is expected to survive. The manager is looking at bullet-proof glass for the station.

Cooperation with criminals is a strategy for getting out of a bad situation unharmed. It is not a guarantee. Obviously. I don’t think it is a very good strategy. Bullet resistant glass is an interesting idea, but of course it can be defeated by the right ammo. No mention is made of armed self-defense.
