The gun-hating Left is always going on about “If you give the bad guy what he wants, he will leave you alone‡”. I guess this guy didn’t get that memo. Clerk shot during Arlington gas station armed robbery.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says the suspect walked in to the store off Arlington Road and the Arlington Expressway a little after 10:30AM. He allegedly demanded money from the employee, and even though police say the victim complied, the suspect shot the clerk in the torso and then fled.
Violent criminals do not stop being violent criminals because you are cooperating. They remain violent criminals independent of your actions.
Cooperation is a strategy. There are other strategies – like being armed in your own defense. I believe that some strategies are better than others.
Oh, and in 2018, we should have better quality security video. Just sayin’.
‡ regarding the crime of rape: Leftists never want to discuss rape when they bring up that “cooperate” strategy. Did I say never? I meant mostly, because some WILL advise cooperation with a rapist, which isn’t so much as stupid, as purely evil advice.
