    AL thug killed by store customer

    .




    Dateline: Alabama
    Scene: Dollar General

    Criminal comes in waving a gun & saying he's going to kill everyone.
    Moves a clerk & one customer to a back room (BAD IDEA!! NEVER GO ALONG!).
    Customer seizes the moment, shoots thug once in the chest.
    Thug dies.

    Oh, and there's a "no open carry allowed" sign on the door.
    I think maybe he mistook that for "everyone here is defenseless".

    Interesting stuff all over the place with that one. Amusing that there was a "no open carry" sign on the door. I can't help but wonder if the customer had been open carrying would the BG have altered his plans? Perhaps he would have just come back at a later time if his motive was something other than robbery (which was suggested in the article).

    This quote was interesting:
    You have one individual waving a gun and you have another one who shoots the one waving the gun. Some people say that's justifiable.Then you're going to have some who says it's not. I think we need to get all of the information we can get from everybody and then go forward from there," the [Sheriff Huffman] said in an interview.
    I'd like to know which idiot would "say it's not" justifiable?

    Oh yeah, those idiots.

    I wonder if the Sheriff was implying he might be one of those idiots, or if he was simply acknowledging that such idiots exist?

    In all the twenty years that I lived in Alabama, I never once saw a sign prohibiting OC. What in the hell are those guys doing down there now that is prompting such a sign??? Bad legislation and now unprecedented signs. Those guys need to get their act together!

    The good sheriff translates "no OC" to "no guns."
