    GOOD: armed robber gets caught the hard way

    Yesterday morning a guy goes into Payless shoe store with a gun demanding money. He got the money bag and began walking the employee to the back of the store, but then turned and ran out.
    He ran across the shopping center to a pawn shop and entered with gun in hand to do another robbery. Little did he know 2 Potter county investigators saw him and drew their pistols but couldn't fire since they didn't have a good shot with people around him. Officers were arriving at the shoe store at this point.

    The dirtbag ran out of the store, went down the embankment of I-40 with officers in foot pursuit and other units arriving. He ran across the east bound traffic lanes.

    He then jumped the median wall and began pointing the gun at cars going west bound and one lady slowed down enough for him to begin hitting her windows, demanding for her to stop. When she wouldn't stop, he jumped on the hood pointing his gun through the windshield at her. A motorcycle officer drew and was about the pull the trigger when a semi hit the lady's car and catapulted the dirtbag onto the pavement, losing his gun in the process. Poor thing got head and chest injuries. Lady got minor injuries.

    Money bag from shoe store and his BB GUN were recovered.

    If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

    I'm sorry for the injuries to the lady and the damage to her vehicle. I have little, make that no, sympathy for armed criminals.

    You stand in front of my car pointing a gun at me, I'm getting a new hood ornament. And I won't be slowing down to do it.

    He's lucky he didn't get plastered, now we'll probably get stuck with his medical bill to top it off.
    Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.

    The lady should have hit the brakes causing the guy to fly off the hood, then hit the gas.

    These criminals never cease to amaze me. At least he was caught, it's his own fault for all that happened to him. Too bad the lady was injured. He should be forced to get a job (whenever he gets out of prison) and pay for damages, including pain and suffering. That will never happen, but I think it's a good idea. The criminals should start being held liable for it.

    Personally, I am sad he did not die a horrible death.

    ^^^^^This is What^^^^^^^^^^^^^


    The truck driver was thinking, and just got fed up with the whole matter and just hit her rear to end the drama.
