    !!!!!Warning!!!!! Very Graphic Footage

    The video at the link is from a security camera and it shows an armed robbery about to take place only to have a customer shoot the robber.

    My purpose with this thread is to gauge the temperatures of my fellow board members to see if they feel what the customer did was justified or not. I believe he was.

    Mods, I checked the rules and I don't think this thread violates them. If they do, then please let me know.

    I was searching to see where this took place and didnt find it. But I was surprised to find so many other incidences of customers shooting armed robbers ....

    While robbing a store a gunpoint, the perp risked everybody's life. The shooter's life was therefore at risk, and he acted appropriately.

    I've always felt that a person in the act of committing a violent crime has abdicated their rights, and that whatever happens to them in the process of the crime is their own fault; and the risk they take.

    Love that having everyday shoppers and their children in the middle of gun battles without warning somehow is a good idea.

    The cops that was shot during the Boston bombings shoot out was shot be other cops.

    True as far as the robbers are concern but not so true of the men women and children in checkout lines that find themselves in the middle of a war zone.

    The perps brought this onto everyone involved. Would you rather everyone cower down and let them get away with money just so no-one gets hurt? I rather a message be sent that we are fighting back!

    Here's the thing, the customers could do nothing and hope the criminal doesn't shoot them or they can do nothing and get killed.

    How do you feel about the events in the video, justified or not?

    Boom! Boom! Out go the lights.

    100% justified. "Gun deaths" tick up by one, "violent crimes" go down by however many this thug would have committed had he not met his match this day.

    I'd have to check the video, but sounds like the dude posed an immediate violent threat. Even if the shooter wasn't directly threatened, I'd still say justified to prevent a lethal threat to others.

    There is a responsibility that comes with being armed- while different for a citizen than a cop, a lot still applies. One factor is the preservation of life, and sometimes that can mean taking the life of a violent criminal.
    If you carry a gun, you should be doing so on the basis of sound principles and sound judgment. I don't care what happens to the criminal- I do care what happens to the innocent people caught in such a situation.

    Jesus Christ! What a moron! Killed him for what? A couple of hundred dollars?

    Great ad for a taser.

    Agreed 100%.

    One thing that people often fail to factor is the future violence that has been thwarted. This instance was very likely not the first violent crime he committed, and if he had been successful, this would not have been the last time he did it.

    The shooter not only prevented injury to the Innocents present, but also saved countless others from suffering this guy's violence.

    I'm sure it wasn't. I can't imagine a normal person could be that cold-blooded.

    Oh! You mean the robber? No... the guy probably got what he deserved. But they need to take a good look at the killer and make sure that it's safe to have him free out on the streets.

    Justified. When you pull a gun in a public store you are up to no good. Because the shooter can't read the idiot's mind he must assume the idiot with the gun is going to shoot someone. I like to think the shooter ended the life of a human predator and save an innocent life or lives.
