This is a discussion on bar robber gets more than he bargained for... within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; It does bring up one of my pet peeves about a lot of businesses, though; moved toward Barrera's wife, Maria, who had been counting money ...
It does bring up one of my pet peeves about a lot of businesses, though;Why do so many places insist on counting the till in full view of customers? I'd be willing to bet that is one of the biggest incentives a robber ever gets, when he can see that the register is already open and a large amount of cash is sitting right out in the open. Pretty much every business has some sort of back room that could be used for this sort of thing, and whether secured or not, at least it's not in plain view.moved toward Barrera's wife, Maria, who had been counting money near the cash register.
... I really hate to see good beer go wasted like that though... bullets is cheaper...
Another one bites the dust!!!! Give the security guard free ammo for life!!
A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.
Why do so many places insist on counting the till in full view of customers?
I work at 3 different bars in Columbus, OH, and all of them either take the till to a back room for counting, or wait until all the patrons have left and the doors are locked to count on the bar or in a booth. Tips are another matter, and a bartender/waitress can have a rather sizeable amount on their person at a busy bar.
Thankfully they had a guard who was allowed to be armed and know how to shoot. I do not condone the wasting of good beer like that, shoulda just used empty bottles.

I can't get the video to play, but it sure sounds like at least one of the would be robbers got what they deserved.
When the messenger arrives and says 'Don't shoot the messenger,' it's a good idea to be prepared to shoot the messenger, just in case.
and ofcourse the robbers mother will say ohhhh they killed my baby boy he was sucha good boy
