    Armed Robbery at Work today

    I wasn't personally involved, but a man walks into our facility (healthcare) and goes up to one of the nursing units and says he wants a specific pain medication and he has a gun. She said "OK, let me take care of that" and goes and calls 911. The guy sits down in a wheel chair close by and waits. Then he says "Hey, is this going to take much longer, I gotta get home for supper." She said just a few more minutes and then the police show up. They talk to him and ask him if he has a gun. He says no. They cuff him and pat him down and he DOES have a gun. Turns out it was a BB gun. He was awarded a free ride to a local resort where he will be staying a while. This could have really turned out bad. Those no weapons signs sure are effective. In healthcare, the drug heads always show up in the ERs claiming they need pain medicine...seems like they are opting for the more direct and quicker route. I'm shocked it hasn't happened before now.

    My dad had a guy come into his store with a prescription for methadone a few years back. They were out of stock and when my dad told the guy that they would either have to order it or send him to another store, the guy pulled off his prosthetic leg, started banging it on the counter and threatening my dad with it. He finally calmed down and went away without the police getting involved but your story reminded me a little bit of that and how strange drugs can make people.

    Maybe since it was a BB gun the forcefield around the hospital allowed him to get in. I can't think of any other explanation.....

    Glad no one got hurt.

    A 20-22 yr old went into a pharmacy .... pointed gun at tech and Pharmist, telling them he wanted this, this, and some of that...... while threatening to kill them with the gun , and waving it in the Tech's face. The Pharmist picked up the shotgun he had behind the counter and shot him. He died.

    His family, were saying how they did not believe "he did it" and that he was "such a nice boy". May be, and maybe he had a drug problem that they didn't seem to know about and decided he was going to get some drugs one way or the other, but his real mistake was sticking a gun in someone's face threatening to kill them in order to get them. It was a fatal mistake.

    So would that be considered armed robbery or legged robbery?

    Sounds like the nurse kept her cool and handled it well.

    I want to know where he's getting his medicine. Mine costs an arm and a leg.

    As I was reading the story, I was half expecting him to pull a weapon out of his prosthetic leg..

    He's been frustrated ever since losing that ass kicking contest.
    It's all part of the big picture.
