    As soon as he said, "Thank you very much" and tucked his gun back under his shirt...BOOM-BOOM, BOOM, "You're welcome!"
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    What's the proper technique for making a polite bullet hole?
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    If he's robbing you he's not polite. Whatever comes out of his mouth makes no difference if he is pointing a gun at me demanding my property.

    I assume your talking about my earlier post. I said he was not agitated, I never said he was a nice guy and never said he wouldn't shoot.
    In watching the video I didn't see an opportunity for the clerk to draw and fire without taking a huge risk. That's what it's all about in a scenario like this, you evaluate the threat and either decide to wait and see if the guy leaves on his own or you go "all in", start blasting and hope he is slower than you.
    I think some folks here have watched 1 too many cowboy movies!

    Actually the question posed in the original post simply asks whether or not a perp's apparent polite demeanor influences your response decisions.
    Guy repeatedly apologizes for the armed robbery while pointing a gun at you.

    Would you be less inclined to shoot someone if they acted like this?
    As for me, drawing against the drop would require a very special opportunity. If that opportunity presents itself feigned courtesy on the part of the crook is not going to save his arse.

    I would politely ask him to try not to bleed too much on the floor.

    I don't get it. When did we decide it was polite to point a gun at someone. You can apologize all you want but that isn't going to reduce the trauma he caused.

    I'm not saying that you go commando, but you certainly don't reduce the level response just because the guy says I'm sorry.
    Train like your life depends on it, because it does.

    "Sir, could you please not bleed so much? I have to clean the store after they haul you off and I'd like the rest of my shift, to be, like, you know, better."

    To me, his demeanor means nothing. Gun + pointed at me/loved one = my drawing and utilizing when the tactical advantage is on my side. It doesn't change my thoughts that him pointing = wanna destroy me...but since he already had the drop, not going to risk my life (and job) for the store's money. It's not my property nor a loved one, not going to die over it.

    Here's a different "demeanor" scenario:

    When deployed to Haiti, we had a weapons turn in program. Several gentlemen came towards us, each with AKs. They were pointed at the ground and our interpreters (confirmed by someone internally) stated they were politely asking to utilize the turn-in program to get rid of their hardware. No problem. They started walking towards us and next thing you know, the AKs were pointed at us (about 6 of them). As soon as my gunner charged the handle on the M2 .50, the AKs hit the street and we detained them.

    So, demeanor or not, like many others have said here.....if he's pointing a gun, he intends to destroy anything on the other side of it. If it's me or a loved one...ya...done deal. NOW in arguement, someone said (prolly kiddin', but still) they'd drop him after he tucks his weapon in his pants and starts to walk....getting on legally shaky ground due to the immediate threat de-escalating due to the weapon no longer being used in a threatening manner. I'd think (and could be wrong, never been a LEO) it'd then turn into a combination armed robbery/MWAG call. Now if you draw on him and hold him there, different story...but still fuzzy within the laws (I have no idea what that falls under...can private citizens detain an armed robber at gunpoint until LEOs arrive??)
