    Rob a recycling plant? They're not known for keeping a lot of money on hand. Just when you think you've heard the stupidest thing ever, something like this happens. That's like mugging Girl Scouts for their cookie money.

    More than an even trade, IMO.

    When the smoke cleared, the thief was on the ground, having been struck at least three times. He was pronounced dead
    love a story with a happy ending.

    germantown...was that in memphis? i grew up pretty close to there, and man, has it gone downhill.
    War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

    I was just thinking...this bad guy will now feed the worms.
    Birds will eat those worms along with seeds. The birds will be able to fly further due to eating those fat juicy bad guy worms.

    The bird droppings will contain plant and tree seeds that will sprout.
    This deceased Bad Guy may be responsible for the birth of an entire new forest someplace.
    Thanks Mr. Bad Guy!

    The up side is that the homicide rate will go up for a while but as the word gets around among the vermin, it will go down because they will know to stay away. It's great!! Citizens taking charge and being responsible for their own safety!God Bless Them Both!!

    Read response #5 on this very thread:

    When the robber turned his attention to the second employee, the other one took cover, pulled out his own gun and started firing.

    Within seconds, the second employee also pulled out a weapon, and all three men were blasting away.

    When the smoke cleared, the thief was ... dead.
    While it can't always be expected to end so well, this is a good example of how effective a high ratio of defenders to robbers can be. Imagine if Virginia Tech had been so populated with people well-motivated defenders capable of defending themselves. Imagine how quickly it could have ended. This is the "polite" society that could be, where the innocent simply won't allow themselves to be wiped out under any circumstances. If only ...

    Wait, how come the cops weren't there in milli-seconds as soon as the 380 was displayed by the BG? FU Brady Bunch.
