Very sad news!
"If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking" - George S. Patton.
That sort of thing makes me so angry. I hope these dirtbags suffer.
Whatever doesn't kill you postpones the inevitable.
Very sad , but we can still learn something from this Tragedy.
"A witness said Baeza walked past his killer without seeing the weapon until it was too late. “He shot him (Baeza) three times with what looked like an AK-47," said A.R. Lucas, owner of the store since 1976."
1. No Situational Awareness - walked into it oblivious.
2. No weapon ? - might not have helped , but we'll never know.
"Lucas said he gives his clerks instructions to stay neutral during robberies, meaning doing exactly what they're told."
The Owner made a Deliberate Decision to be a Sheep , and ordered
his Employees to do the same.
Luckily for them , it worked - THIS TIME
Carlos however was not so lucky........
He was simply "in the wrong place at the wrong time," said Galveston Police detective Alfred Paige, lead homicide investigator in the case.
The incident was recorded on a black and white video camera...
Which seems to suggest that neither the Police nor Store Security
measures are as Effective as a personal weapon at keeping your
-SIG , it's What's for Dinner-
know your rights!
"If I walk in the woods, I feel much more comfortable carrying a gun. What if you meet a bear in the woods that's going to attack you? You shoot it."
Considering how little most people know about guns and the errors newspapers make, the rifle being an AK-47 is far from a sure thing. I wouldn't be too surprised if this "AK-47" was really a 5 shot semiautomatic hunting rifle (AK-47s have wood trim, this rifle had wood trim, this rifle=AK-47).
This is evidence that banning CCWs does not eliminate shootings (and John Kerry and his friends were so convincing! ).
Man this sucks!
I feel for the guy's family. This is truely a tragic case and I hope the robbers are stopped soon. I hate it when people are put at the "mercy" of a BG.
It's clearly obvious that the shooter is an "imminent and deadly danger to society."
Truely a tragic story!! Steve48
