    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    That's horrible. Twice the gun didn't fire? It makes me think the revolver wasn't loaded. What torture for the manager to have that held to his head and attempted to fire twice! I hope these criminals are caught and fully prosecuted and locked away.

    I used to work with a guy who was a grocery store manager. He was a HUGE guy...tall and rugged and an ex cop. He was robbed one day and the guys held a gun to his head while he opened the safe. He said it was the hardest thing he ever had to do....open a safe....to REMEMBER how to open the safe with a gun to your head.

    He changed professions yet again a few years later.

    Pardon me but that is falling for the media hype, it is not “gun crime” but crime using a gun. Calling it “gun crime” furthers the media and anti-gunners agenda in accusing the gun of committing the crime instead the criminal.

    Time for the manager to get his own gun...a Glock, never a 'click'.
    That dirtbag could/should have be changed to 'dust'.OMO

    I want to rewrite the ending: "As the van was departing, the angry robber tried the pistol one more time on the driver. The pistol operated properly, killing the driver. In the ensuing vehicle crash the passenger received fatal injuries. The Sonic manager bought a winning MegaMillions ticket and will split the $600 million with two others. The two criminals have been nominated for the Dumbest Criminal Hall of Fame. Their families said they were turning their lives around and induction into a Hall of Flame was proof. Satan smiles at the Hall of Flame reference."

    So which was the loudest sound? The 1st or the 2nd click? We can't have a tie this ain't soccer.
