Cooperating With Criminals Is No Guarantee

The Gun-hating Left loves to go on about how if you just give the bad guys what they want, you will be OK. 3 men charged with capital murder in shooting death of Houston store clerk. I guess these guys didn’t get that memo.

Investigators say several clerks were on duty when the masked suspects burst through the doors of the convenience store.

Even though Lee complied with the suspects’ demands, he was still shot multiple times, authorities say.

Violent criminals remain violent criminals regardless of what you do, or don’t do.

Being armed in your own defense is also not a guarantee. There are no guarantees in this life.

When the Left is preaching the benefits of cooperation they rarely want to talk about rape.

They Took The Money, Then Shot a 79-year-old Woman in the Back

We are constantly told by the gun-hating Left to just give the Bad Guys what they want, and they will leave us alone. These guys didn’t get that memo. Hunt for 79-year-old store owner’s killers continues.

“For someone to come in, do a robbery, take the money, just like they asked, and then shoot them in the back, there you go. At this point, we even have criminals out looking for them,” said Detective Ed Troyer, with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

Violent criminals do not stop being violent criminals because of anything you are doing, or not doing.

And neighbors were shocked to discover that they live and work in The Real World™ and not in some fantasy land.

“To come in here and blemish our neighborhood and feel our safety is threatened is really hard to believe,” Larry Chambers said.

Because they want to feel safe, even if they aren’t safe.

Cooperation With Violent Criminals Doesn’t Guarantee Safety

The gun-hating-Left is always going on about how if you just cooperate, the bad guys will leave you alone. (They never, ever want to talk about rape when that subject comes up.) Do you recognize the robber who pistol-whipped and shot a Midland-area clerk?.

Held at gunpoint, the clerk opened the cash register and the robber took fistfuls of cash.

He then shot the clerk, grabbed more money and ran.

He cooperated and he got shot anyway.

Now maybe there was nothing he could have done. Being armed in your own self-defense is also not a guarantee. “There are no guarantees in this life save for death and next winter’s snow.” But meekly cooperating didn’t do much.

Violent criminals do not stop being violent criminals because of anything you are or are not doing.

He Was Shot While Handing Over the Money

We are constantly told by the gun-hating-Left that if we just “give them what they want” we will be safe. I guess these guys didn’t get that memo. Milwaukee store clerk shot during armed robbery.

Clerk was shot in the legs while handing money to the gunman

They shot him once before they said anything. Then as he was cooperating with them, they shot him again.

Cooperation in the face of a violent encounter is a strategy, not the guarantee that the Left loves to say it is. Now in this case, a gun for self-defense may not have saved this guy, who is recuperating from his injuries. Being armed in your own defense is also a strategy for dealing with a violent encounter. But they are strategies, not guarantees. There are no guarantees in this life save for death and next winter’s snow.

She Gave Them What They Wanted, Then They Shot Her

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.

Because Actually Getting a Job Is Out of the Question

The linked article could start discussions on so many things. Recidivism being the obvious choice. Robbery suspect is convicted murderer. But a quote late in the story makes me want to scream.

“I don’t want to hurt you but I have to make a living,” one of the robbers told the clerk Monday.

The 2 got about 100 dollars in cash.

The murder – in 1990 – was also the result of a robbery, which also netted about 100 bucks. But in 1990, he couldn’t leave a living witness, even though she was nice.

“They simply could not leave a witness alive,” a Metro detective was quoted in 1990 by The Tennessean. Coleman told Metro detectives how “nice” the 1990 victim was, who had given the men free sandwiches before they shot her to death, hid her body in the store and left in her car with less than $100 in cash, a similar amount to that taken Monday in Shelbyville.

He could have made more money if he got a job in the store and applied himself.

Cooperation Is Held Up As the Key to Safety

“Just give them what they want, and they will leave you alone.” That is the mantra of all who hate self-defense. Too bad these 2 didn’t get that memo. 2 South Carolina residents charged with killing gas station clerk during robbery.

Violent criminals do not stop being violent criminals because of anything you are, or are not, doing.

Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey said Wright, after getting the cash from the register, shot and killed Bertram.

The only thing I don’t understand is why the getaway driver is not charged with murder. (The guy who pulled the trigger is.) But maybe New Jersey thinks that Felony Murder is unfair.
