    The poor guy was just misunderstood, he was coming home from a baseball game and had the knife to just cut the sandwich he was going to buy. He only went up to the counter to ask where the sandwiches were, too bad they didn't have and sandwiches and instead had a lot of firepower.

    He attempted to rob a gun shop with a bat?

    He HAD to be on something, or his IQ is below 70. Either way, he's getting free Room & Board for a while.

    A few years ago the middle aged son of an older friend of my parents' robbed a bank with a golf club and plastic back over his head. He actually got money, but was caught trying to spend some of the money that had gotten dye on it from the dye pack. Which was also all over his car.

    Comes in armed with a deadly weapon and threatens to use it. Sounds like Armed Robbery to me (ORS 164.415). Instead, he gets charged with 1st Degree Theft (ORS 164.055), though that is a felony.

    According to the Oregon Revised Statutes:

    164.415 Robbery in the first degree. (1) A person commits the crime of robbery in the first degree if the person violates ORS 164.395 and the person:

    (a) Is armed with a deadly weapon;

    (b) Uses or attempts to use a dangerous weapon; or

    (c) Causes or attempts to cause serious physical injury to any person.

    (2) Robbery in the first degree is a Class A felony. [1971 c.743 §150; 2007 c.71 §51]


    What ... because he was stopped, it wasn't robbery? Because he was disarmed and thwarted, it wasn't use of a deadly weapon during commission of a felony?
