    Store Clerk Murdered; Customers Keep Shopping

    Perfect example of sheeple burying their heads in the sand:

    Customers Ignore Dead Convenience Store Clerk Gurjeet Singh In Gary, Indiana - cbs2chicago.com

    A 26-year-old convenience store clerk was shot and killed in broad daylight in Gary, Ind., and police say witnesses stood by and did nothing. CBS 2's Pamela Jones reports there are critical clues that may help crack the case.

    Police say one of the four men caught on surveillance video bursting into the clerk's booth at the convenience store was about to commit murder. The video shows a man in red run up an aisle and kick in the door to the booth. Within seconds, the clerk, Gurjeet Singh, was shot in the neck.

    "It was senseless. And really all homicides are senseless but what we gather from this, there was very little resistance," said Gary Police Department Commander Anthony Titus. "It didn't have to end the way it did."

    But Titus says what's even more senseless is the apparent inaction of bystanders standing near the front door almost the whole time.

    Police say there were several customers walking around the store after the crime. But only one called 911 for help.

    When asked what he finds most disturbing about the surveillance footage, Titus said, "The fact that people went in and out of the store and didn't call police. There is a man laying there. Nobody thinks to dial 911 or check to see if he's OK or anything."

    Police want to talk to people who saw the four men at the mini-mart on 15th and Grant just before 5:20 p.m. Sunday.

    Investigators say two were dressed in black shirts, like one man on the tape who looks to be holding a gun. The other two had red shirts. Police think they were driving a burgundy compact car.

    "It's clear enough to the point that if you're familiar with that person, you'd be able to look at it and go, that's someone I know," Titus said.

    Investigators hope someone who sees this video will be able to help bring Singh's family some closure. He was doing his job one minute and losing a fight for his life seconds later.
    The customers are lucky that the BGs didn't decide to herd them into a back room for execution. It sounds like they wouldn't have resisted.

    Those in the store were not sheep; 10 to 1 someone in the crowd knew at least one of the four thugs. This just became an opportunity to walk out without paying.

    Handgun violence has become no big deal in south Chicago and Gary.

    If the shoppers who did nothing are legal citizens, they should have their citizenship revoke!

    How utterly pathetic!

    Those that stood by and did nothing are not part of the human race. But you see that menatlity in the bottom of the socio-economic ladder in every major city.

    What a terrible shame,

    Gary, Indiana, as a Shakespeare would say,
    Watch a clerk get shot so you don't have to pay--
    Gary, Indiana, Gary Indiana, Gary, Indiana,
    Let me say it once again.

    That's the town where thugs ar bold
    If you'd like to have a logical explanation

    I will say without a moment of hesitation
    There is just one place
    To get shot in the face.

    That was my first thought. Instant opportunity to loot the place.
    Base mentality that of a sewer rat.
    It's a shame, but reality is often not pretty.
    Also, no one wants to 'get involved' these days.

    Anyone in that store that didn't at least help the clerk, call 9-1-1, or act as a witness, is complicit in that murder.
    I can understand not attempting to stop the assault, if there was no one legally armed or physically able, but not assisting after the fact, and acting like nothing happened? Not!

    Pretty good. That song from the music man is the first thing that came to mind when I saw Gary, Indiana.

    now the first thing that will come to mind when I see Gary Indiana is a bunch of (P* word) people.

    Serious question...If you happened to be in the store when this happened and had your CCW and your gun on you. Would you have the right to shoot?

    Depends. In many (most?) you would be clear. If you are just starting off, handgunlaws.us is the place to start.

    In Florida, a concealed carrier can use deadly force to stop a felony... in my vast legal expertise, I would say this qualifies...

Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"
