You were expecting a Subway employee to "fix the cable"?

Was the worker Nick?

You can't just let a man walk out alive with all that fresh-made bread.

According to APD, a man was armed with a BB gun when he attempted to rob the Subway, at I-25 and Gibson. A Subway employee shot and killed the armed robbery suspect.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

A gun is a gun.  Robber pulled a gun, worker did the same.  Any imbalance in stopping power is the fault of the losing side.

what a wonderful thing to risk your life over. 40$ of a subway drawer or whatever.

good riddance, Genius. I hope you dont have any kids.

are the gun laws in NM roughly equivalent to other SW states? ie, basically arent any?

That's not the usual way a person loses weight at Subway, but on the positive side he did avoid eating the food.

I read about the woman at Subway who defended herself trying to stop a robber from taking her purse. If this employee is allowed to continue working, then she's got every right to throw a shiat fit

Justified or not, why would you put your life in additional risk over your employer's insured couple hundred dollars? And he's gonna lose that job, and struggle to find another because he broke policy in a way that could have opened up his employer to legal action, and the internet will make sure that follows him.

I get it. fark that robber asshole. Deserved what came of it. But you're throwing your future away over an employer who will throw you out like trash.

Perhaps it's not about protecting the boss's cash as much as it is your own life.

Not even cops understand the fallacy that pulling a weapon ensures unquestionable obedience. Not to mention that if you *do* comply with the requests of someone threatening your life, that doesn't guarantee automatic survival.

The robber's intentions are a moot point compared to the fact that he was actively threatening soneone's life. Taking HIS life isn't justified because of the crime of theft, so much as it is the attempt upon the employee's life. Doesn't matter even if it was a BB gun, there's no time to verify the severity, let alone validity of the threat when there's a gun in your face.

Is the shooter now unemployable? Never to find a job again? Probably not. The consequences aren't going to be that bad. Even so, to argue that they should have risked loosing their life simply to avoid the inconvenience of an investigation or even a trial is just plain asinine thinking. Life is worth more than that.

Or to put it another way, I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

Makes sense to me.

Many victims complied entirely with their robber's demands and the robber still made an impulsive decision to leave no witnesses. And as the robber in TFA valued his own life so little that he chose to risk it for just a couple of twenties, it is not logical to conclude that he values your life either.

I think he was rite to shoot, but where did the gun come from? Was it kept under the counter? The more likely scenario is that he had it on him.  I'm not sure if that is a good idea. It worked out this time, but someone may come in and get it away from him. The robber was an idiot to bring a bb gun to a robbery.

Very true, but he did not necessarily know it was only a BB gun. Sad to say but robbers today will kill people even if they cooperate. If you put me in a position where I get to live or die, I'm going to choose to live. And if I have the means to live and it requires me to kill somebody that's trying to harm me - well,  screw 'em. He may have difficulty finding a job in the future, but at least he'll be alive to do so.
 
2021-09-17 6:29:39 AM  
I don't know why you would rob a Subway. The money is probably thin, short a couple inches, and skimpy on the ink.
 
2021-09-17 6:49:45 AM  
No snark, seriously wondering if this ups the ante to "just start killing them first before they get the chance."

I'll take it a step further.  Unless you're naked as the day you werre born, if you claim to be armed in the commission of a crime, you should be treated as if you are armed until you are apprehended or surrender.

Right now there's a civil suit going on for the last few years in my city because a man jumped a counter at a pharmacy, claimed to be armed, and stole a bunch of drugs before leaving.  The pharmacy reported the robbery and the detail that the supsect claimed to be armed.  A cop shot and killed him during the search and pursuit.  Family is claiming wrongful death.  The officer did lie and claim he saw a gun in the final confrontation when no firearm was found in the vicinity.  To me the proper result is to deny the family claim and to discipline the officer, such as reduction in rank and unpaid month suspension for lying, relying solely on the report when he claimed to have seen something that he did not see.

As far as I can tell, while gun laws do exist in the state, they typically aren't enforced.
