    I'm not sure whether that was real or not, I have my doubts. If it WAS real the guy behind the counter is stupid beyond description. Couldn't tell if the guy was needing more shots or not since the view was obstructed but to handle the guys gun and then drag him away is plain stupid. I would like to see the story behind the video....

    We had this crop up on THR - it is we all decide a fake. Done I guess as a set-up when business was slack!.

    Notice - muzzleflashes are all the same - except - the shot that supposedly takes the BG down - no muzzle flash. Along with that - seemingly no recoil to see! Some argue GG shoots the BG again becuase BG reaches for gun - hard to tell but - it has to be a fake we reckoned anyways - good try but not convincing to us gunnies.

    Robbery Gone Bad

    Check out his video. I will be very interested in comments on this guy's actions.
    Very suspect in the way he handles this after the BG is down.

    I'm not sure exactly what to think about that video yet.
    Plenty of things bother me about that store vid.
    I'll look at it again in the morning.

    It doesn't look "real" to me for some reason. It's too clear, too "rehearsed" looking to me. You really couldn't tell what the BG was doing although he had taken control of the gun again. The clerk shot him like he had been watching too much gangsta style shooting on TV. And moving the body like that? If it is real, the clerk is on his way to jail for a long time.

    Talking I'm Wid Youse Guys

    I just looked again. There is just no way that is a genuine vid.
    I was stuck home spending some time with Samuel Adams & five of the other Identical Sextuplets last night & even then it still did not look too real to me.

    haha.....meanwhile..."let me drag the body back into the "stock room" so I can keep waiting on customers until the Police get here."

    I think the video is a fake too. Notice that when shots are exchanged there is a clear sense of "your turn to shoot." The shots clearly alternate in sequence and there is a certain amount of ummmm PACING involved. Also the BG goes to the floor and the GG comes up and finishes him off but there is a convenient rack of clothes placed so as to obstruct vision and the GG raises his gun into camera view but I think there is an obvious deflection of the muzzle so as to avoid hitting his buddy with the muzzle flash and probably the wadding from the blanks which can themselves kill. Just ask the LATE actor John Erik Hexum who died after an act of stoooopidity by playing Russian Roulette with a Hollywood revolver loaded with blanks.

    Proof that Robbery Gone Bad Was A Fake

    Check out the following clip. Proof that this WAS a staged incident.

    Good job to all who observed that from the first airing of it.

    Well spotted Bob - indeed the clip supports what we thought originally. Thx.
