FTA:

"Then he looks at me and he has his hand on the gun and he goes 'All right, I got you," Salzer said. He said the suspect turned and walked away behind the store.
"I honestly believe there is goodness in everybody," Salzer said. "I just wanted to look him in the eyes and say please don't to this."



You know, this comes off as the would-be robber not having a change of heart, but listening to sage advice.  As if Salzer were a plainclothes cop, or involved with organized crime.

"All right, I got you" sounds like an admittance that Salzer know's something that would get the robber in a world of shiat real fast, above and beyond what a typical robbery would get one into. "Like, aahh, I get it, I'll move along, go rob some other store."

But yeah, God and goodness in people...that's the reasonable explanation.  The guy had a life changing epiphany and is now doing missionary work in Zimbabwe.

The manager is VERY lucky that he didn't get blown away when he hitched up his pants & reached around back behind him.  When I saw that I thought I was about to see someone trying to draw down on someone who already had a pistol somewhat at the ready.  Unlike the movies that almost never works out well for the person trying to draw.

/why would you rob a Dollar General?
//Especially first thing in the morning when the only money around is the $30 or so in/for change per register.

Actually, it does.  An in depth analysis of an armed robbery shows that someone with concealed carry has enormous advantages over a robber, even when the robber has a brandished and cocked gun.  To start with, the robber's attention is all over the place, not just on the person being robbed, who just needs to figure out a moment to do just one thing, pull his gun and fire.  That is, the victim is focused, and can choose when to act, even when the robber is done and just wants to get out of there.

The robber doesn't know their victim has cc, or where.  And the robber wants to rob, not shoot, but the victim just wants to shoot.  The robber wants the victim to give him things of value, which he can either hand to the robber, that he might look at, or toss at the robber, that he will have to catch or stoop down to get.

Add to these things that robbers frequently use drugs and alcohol before robbing; and something known to police, that about 50% of the guns used in robberies are dysfunctional, either having no ammo, the wrong ammo, incorrectly loaded, gun malfunctioning or broken.

Word has gotten out to street criminals about the cc advantage, so much so that many are now initiating robberies with "cheap shot" attacks, to disable their victim before robbing them.  Thus situational awareness is just as important as concealed carry.

Slappajo: I didn't take it as the manager saying it from a 'I'm a bad ass' perspective but more from a 'dude, you're going to f*ck your life up over 50 bucks' perspective.


Or made him reconsider: "What the hell is in a Dollar Store that I even want?"

HERO: "And as I'm walking I'm thinking in my head, okay, what's the best thing to do in this situation," he said. "I'm there thinking, God, please help me."

And there we have it, folks. Definitive proof that God's chosen religion is Jedi, after all! No further proof is needed for me. I am now Gnostic Jedi.
