    GOOD: Robbery Suspect Shot

    An interesting news story that I caught last night.

    Guy tries to rob the WRONG person at a Church's Chicken! Look at the mugshot and tell me he didn't get the short-end of the stick!

    Has anyone heard from ArmyCop recently?

    Here's the story:
    MOBILE, Alabama - 2:40 p.m.
    Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson says if the facts reported about the Wednesday night shooting on Michigan Avenue are correct, then charges will not be filed against the customer who shot the suspected robber.

    “If you’re in reasonable fear that somebody is about to use deadly force against you, then you’re entitled to use deadly force back,” said Tyson, who has not yet reviewed the case.

    The shooting happened around 10:50 p.m. on Wednesday when Randall Ford, 46, armed with a box cutter, demanded money from a customer leaving the fast food restaurant, according to police. The customer pulled out a gun and shot Ford in the neck.

    After receiving medical treatment, Ford was arrested and charged with robbery. The customer is not facing any charges, according to police.

    With four robberies and two shootings within a few days, that does not sound like a good area to get fast food.

    Good job legally armed citizen.

    I find some of the recorded comments to be sadly "the norm", Especially the last one.

    This proves once again that fast food (junk food) is dangerous to your health . No, it is absolutely not a good are to get fast food. Glad it ended well.

    Looks like the victim got in a couple of boots to the head while he was waiting for 911 to answer.

    I'll pass on the "fast food" and try for some "dead run food" instead. Hang around there? No thanks.

    It can happen anytime, anywhere, to anyone.

    Good job on the shooters part. But a shot in the neck? Who teaches that technique?

    Congrats to this armed customer...it is a shame, though, that the dirtbag will live to rob again...and he WILL.
