    Imagine this one here!!

    OK - this was in UK - the store owner and staff, unarmed except for an iron bar.

    It reached a point where I find it easy to imagine the outcome here!

    Only In G. B.

    Only in G.B. could a jewelry store robbery "go down" quite like that one.
    Thanks for posting it Chris.
    More comments later.
    Folks you have got to watch that vid.

    Meanwhile...I'd have had to whack that female store clerk once with that metal bar just to shut her up. God!...that screaming!

    Good thing those ordinary schmucks didn't have any guns or that piece of human waste might not have managed to hurt any of them.

    Recalling the UK's treatment of Tony Martin, I expect the store owner would be sent up for kidnapping and assault.

    Those people are stupid! all the guy had to do was stand his ground with the BG and hit him a couple good times with that pipe! instead he let the BG take it? WOW. Also I would have had to lay the screamer out.

    This is a good video of what not to do.

    The Jewelry Store Owner

    The Jewelry Store Owner had a BUP

    In America we have The BUG ~ Back Up Gun

    In G.B. The BUP ~ Back Up Pipe

    You lose your Primary Pipe...you quickly go for the Back Up Pipe.

    While watching that, I kept remembering the guy in Camden, NJ a few months ago who shot and killed the guy who had a knife at his wife's throat. What a difference.

    Speaking of knives, the people in that store should get down on their knees and thank God that he didn't have a knife. He could have done a lot of damage in the time it took for the reinforcements to get there; (first cop) "What? Me go in there alone? Are you crazy? I might get hurt!"

    Here?

    A shot and possibly dead BG. Police would say the shop owner acted in legitimate self defense. BG's mom will sue claiming the BG was just asking directions to the local sunday school meeting. Three foot long rap sheet will show otherwise.

    Since it was obviously in the UK the shop people will likely go to jail on weapons and assault charges. The BG will be awarded more in damages than if the shop owner had let him go with the goods. The BG will be celebrated by the local thug scene rappers and so on.

    Yeah I know sarcasm abounds.

    The British disarm their police, what was one cop going to do? I don't blame him for waiting for back up. He was off duty to boot, so he didn't even have a stick.

    I would have stabbed the guy. See what happens to citizens when they aren't aloud to have guns to protect themselves! This guy was absolutely DUMB. If your are going to be a criminal, you need to know how to defend yourself too.

    Is it just me, or is this incident characterised by a peculiar lack of violence on both the BG and GGs part?

    What I don't understand, is after they saw how violent he was, why didn't they open the door and trap in between the doors sooner?

    Plus, I thought in GB you were required to retreat rather than defend.

    Thirdly, I was surprised by the ineffectiveness of the steel bar/pipe on the BG. 'Course it's hard to tell how hard the blows landed. Not very hard apparently.
