    Good: Man Robs The Wrong Store - Bessemer, AL

    Man shot, killed during Bessemer robbery attempt | Breaking News from The Birmingham News - al.com

    A man armed with a shotgun was himself shot and killed today as he attempted to rob a bait shop, according to Bessemer police.
    The incident happened about 4:15 p.m. at The Bait Shop at 729 9th St. N. in Bessemer, said Capt. Mike Roper. When the man attempted to rob the store, the owner shot and killed him, Roper said.
    Roper did not give the man's name because he was not sure if his family had been identified.
    I have to say, this guy was incredibly dumb trying to rob a bait shop. Not trying to stereotype, but the type of guy that owns a bait shop is probably also into hunting and would be a fan of the 2nd amendment.

    Oh well, the stupid shall be punished.

    And just when everybody thought " there's no cure for stupid ".
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
