Wow. Talk about a risky move. If the gun was real.... If the punch wasn't good.... The odds were very much against a positive outcome.
On the other hand, he even made the guy clean up his own blood off the floor while waiting for the police. Priceless.

That was some bad left. The bg's face is still bent in the pic.
I see a nose job to fix that break! Great out come.
Maybe those North Carolina boys don't rob all that easily.
Couple of thoughts:
- That clerk has a pretty good left.
- The fights you see on TV with people taking blows that bad and worse are pretty unrealistic. I'm surprised the guy didn't break his hand, but apparently the blow was "cushioned" by the "crush" in the perp's nose. He looks like he got hit in the nose by a battering ram.
- The clerk did an excellent job of sizing the perp up, figuring out what his chances were, manuvering the perp within "range". The gun was still in the perp's belt, and we know that reaction loses to action every time, so if one has a good punch, and the clerk obviously knew he did, it's a good move with less risk than might at first glance appear. I think the clerk has spent some time punching the bag - he knew exactly how to step into the punch and hit hard.

I watched this this morning. What a wicked left that guy has. That little B*%#H has a real dent in his face now. Good for the clerk and to make him clean up his own blood?! AWESOME doesn't even begin to cover it.
This guy is a real man.
LOL. That's classic. He makes the guy clean up his own blood. That's absolutely hilarious!
What we used to call a two hit fight, he got hit and he hit the floor.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."
I bet the perp has a concussion from that. But he (the BG) should consider himself lucky. After all, the clerk said if it had been any other day he would have been carrying a gun and would have shot the guy. So this time he got off with a broken face. Next time he'll be in the morgue.

Gives new meaning to the gun in the face theory...Nice punch.. Some people are just not going to stand for this...
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......
And we have a 'winner' here...
Nice work, "Rocky".
