that guy is for real.. wow.. poor man.. oh man.. jesus christ.. you gotta do what you gotta do.
he could of sold his gun hes just another criminal
Any poker player would tell you that this man would not shoot the store owner.
Then again, who in their right mind robs a convenience store with a gun for 40 bucks (only to be caught later).
This is EXACTLY how the IRS does it!!! Polite, but "stern". But when a lowly sheeple impersonates its elite master (killing, robbing, extorting, we must expect then, and only then, will the wolves be called to administer "justice". The Endarkenment continues...
Oh my goodness! This brought tears. Tears for the man who is obviously a kind and gentle soul and to have to resort to this crime. He has to know this will only multiply his problems and how much hungrier his family will be as he sits in jail. Anger also accompanies the tears when I think about all the money that QE has sent out into the world yet none goes to our own, who are broke, desperate and hurting. Hold your mean remarks towards me because I already know that I am compassionate towards the plight that he is in but just because the man has impeccable manners does not mean he deserves to get away with this.
GO TO YOUR PASTOR, MINISTER, RABBI, BROTHER, SISTER, FATHER, OR MOTHER BUT DO NOT RESORT TO ARMED ROBBERY TO SUPPLEMENT YOUR INCOME. THIS METHOD MAY RESULT IN THE IMMEDIATE CESSATION OF LIFE OR LONG TERM IMPRISONMENT BY GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITIES.
He is a thief, bad idea. As 6:52 stated there are so many other options. Now he will get three and a wake up every day at society’s expense.Another American Idiot!!!
When the going gets tough, we turn on each other. I am sure the store owner has bills to pay as well.
Just another common criminal. Like most of us, he is where he is today because of the decisions he's made in the past. This robbery is just one more example of his inability to make good decisions.
The banks do this to us EVERY DAY. We politely thank them..
If I deposit someone's personal check in my bank account (I have one at the moment for $8.00 and I refuse to deposit it and my wife is pissed off about it) and that check bounces, the bank will take $50.00 from my account. The entire check clearing / bouncing process is completely automated, so no human labor is required, except to drop the NSF letter into the outgoing mail. That is criminal!Yes the guy could have sold his gun. How do we know it was not a CO2 powered pellet gun? I can buy a pellet gun that looks EXACTLY like a Beretta Model 92fs, for about $80.00.The video was very clear, so this man will go to prison, if he is not already there by now.The bail outs were for Wall Street, not Main Street. I read not long ago that if all this bail out money was divided up among the "Common People" each family could have received a check for $500,000. I don't know if the amount is accurate, even if the amount was $50,000 each, do you seriously think the country would be in the condition it is currently?I will never sell my guns. I'm really gonna need them very soon. Very soon.
Too bad he's going to jail. Now his kids won't have any food at all. Like 11:56 said, he could have sold his gun. Not a smart move on his part.
He'll go to jail because he's stupid as one of the previous posts points out; there are so many other alternatives - people are just stupidas hell.Now he will have fresh clothes every day, good grub and 900 channels on his color T.V. while producing nothing.And.........He's only costing you $275.00 a dayWhat a deal !
AS I STATED AT 6:52 AM,IF YOU INITIATE THIS TYPE OF DESPERATE ACTION YOU WILL PROBABLY MEET YOUR DEMISE AT THE HANDS OF A FRIGHTENED STORE CLERK.IF YOU GO TO JAIL IN MOST METRO AREAS I ASSURE YOU THAT YOU WILL NOT BE WEARING "FRESH CLOTHES DAILY, YOU WILL NOT EAT GOOD FOOD AND YOU WILL NOT BE WATCHING 900 CHANNELS OF COLOR TELEVISION".YOU WILL BE HUDDLED IN A CORNER TRYING TO SHARPEN YOUR TOOTHBRUSH ON A FILTHY FLOOR TO USE AS PROTECTION, HOPING THE PARTICULAR BULL IN YOUR CELLBLOCK ALLOWS YOU TO EAT THE BILGE YOU HAVE BEEN SERVED, WHILE YOU PRAY YOU DO NOT END UP AS A NEWS STORY ON COLOR TELEVISION WHILE YOU WAIT FOR YOUR BAIL TO BE POSTED.THAT IS THE REALITY OF INCARCERATION. IT IS NOT A GREAT DEAL.
Boy ; you should come to the Cleveland City JailI visit a friend thereFull Libarary, State required recreation facilities, AAA, NAA, Learning and health programs, nutritional programs, GED and TAPcoursesOh yeah - as you said, they got 'er rough allright
HMMM,LET ME SEE IF I UNDERSTAND. BY YOUR OWN ADMISSION, YOU WILL BE RESIDING IN CONFINED LIVING QUARTERS WITH ALCOHOLICS, NARCOTIC ADDICTS, PEOPLE SO IMPAIRED THEY CANNOT COMPLETE HIGH SCHOOL, THAT REQUIRE OTHERS TO SHOW THEM WHAT THEY SHOULD EAT AND HOW TO EXCERCISE. WHEN THEY ARE RELEASED THEY INTEND TO USE OTHER CITIZENS MONEY TO PAY THE BILLS FOR ALL OF THESE EXPENSES.AND YOU BELIEVE THESE WOULD BE GREAT ROOM MATES FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME.HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!ENJOY YOUR STRETCH PAL.
HMMM,SOUNDS LIKE ----------I DUNNO -------------DOWNTOWN DETROIT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHABLAHABLAHABLAHAHABLAHA
It's unfortunate, however the moment you threaten and innocent's life with a weapon you have signed your life away. That clerk, a cop, or anyone walking by has every right to blow a hole in him right there on the spot.Hungry isn't the same as dead. You still have options, and stealing is still wrong.
618 stealing is still wrong, UNLESS YOU ARE THE GOVERNMENT, THEN IT IS A OK, THIS CRIMINAL USA DOES IT EVERYDAY, STEALS OIL, THEN KILLS FOR FUN, THE USA, THE MOST CRIMINAL GOVT IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.
And your still here therefore YOU are same in part of said criminal Gov't. Remember it's YOUR gov't you speak so well of. Have a great day !
no dumbfuck 637, I am not part of the govt, they steal from me by way of taxes, fees and other bs, they dont work for me, they work against me and you, IDIOT!
what kind of excuse is that, I have kids. no excuse. yeah go to a church or many other food banks etc etc..
I'm not defending crime, but this man does not seem or act in any way like a criminal. A criminal at 50 or so talking that politely? Most real criminals would be in jail for life by 50, not pleading kindly with some 80 year old clerk to give them some money. Criminals generally have three routes, one less common. The first is that they do crime for careers, often going in and out of prisons, common drug use, and will possibly have many children they never met. The second path is ending up dead or in prison for the rest of their life for committing a serious crime. The last and least common course is that they clean their act up and become law abiding citizens.With that said, the man's actions were foolish. He looked like he was hit by the depression, perhaps feels like his retirement plans will be gone, and is exhausted with the job he may have or perhaps lost. Of course he could even have kids in their 20s or even around 30 living at home since they can't make it on their own today. If they were problems for him when they were teenagers it's possible they could cause him grief in life living with him as opposed to families that are closely bonded. We don't know the causes or extent of his stress, but he is NOT a criminal. He did a stupid thing, and there should be some form of penalty. American justice is totally incompetent however. We give rapists and pedophiles four years or so, while this poor bastard could receive 30 years. Don't forget of course, that bankers, politicians, and organized criminals such as drug lords and sex slavers like those in the Nigerian 419 have been robbing the world of it's goodness for quite some time now. But they own the world so they get to decide the laws and rules of our establishments and ways of thinking.
