    Hooray for the good guys. It's sad anytime an encounter ends with someone dead, but at least this time it was the BG instead of a GG.

    Nice find. Good to hear the robber was the one that got justice given to him.

    Who in their right mind pays $180.00 for a pair of basketball shoes indorsed by LeBron (King James) James? I wouldn't pay that for a Resistol Stetson just because it was indorsed by (King George) George Strait. But then I've been accused of being cheap a time or 2.

    As for the shooting. Glad it worked out for the shooter.

    Butt ugly pink $20 Korean tennis shoes with a silver lining. My only concern was the first citizen drawing a gun thwarted the attack, the robber ran like hell, guy #2 draws and shoots him in the back of the head. If many of us had been the 2nd gunman in the red shirt Al Sharpton would be on a plane headed to town. He was just trying to feed his family and was gunned down like a dog. I can hear CNN now.

    On the other hand it was hilarious to see how concerned the shooter was about the whole thing by getting back in line for his shoes. In some ways this thing on video looked more like how a shooting unfolds in the hood than some dorky citizen drawing and defending themselves straight on. And I'd love to find out if any of these people had carry permits. Any bets?

    My first reaction was still HOORAY, regardless of my after thoughts.

    Five points AND little five points are both pools of swimming low lifes and finely cultured diverse liberals dodging turds in a bowl. One reason I may never have to use my weapon is because I wont go down there. The first rule of self defense. Don't be in Atlanta at night.

    Bet half the people in that shoe line are on Government assistance. YAY!

    They all should have been shot for spending $1180 for a pair of sneakers. I bet the majority were being bought with welfare checks.

    Of course they were bought with welfare checks. When you have to work hard for your money tennis shoes are not a priority.

    That's racist! No, seriously, these are two of the most blatantly racist things I've seen here. Shameful.

    How is it racist to question the price of sneakers, or the acquisition and spending of welfare checks ?
