    One Dumb Crook...

    This was emailed to me from someone who saw this in the newspaper.

    "After stepping around a marked police patrol car parked at the front door, a man walked into H&J Leather & Firearms intent on robbing the store. The shop was full of customers and a uniformed officer was standing at the counter. Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a hold-up and fired a few wild shots from a target pistol. The officer and a clerk promptly returned fire, and several customers also drew their guns and fired. The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics. Crime scene investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases in the shop. The subsequent autopsy revealed 23 gunshot wounds. Ballistics identified rounds from 7 different weapons. No one else was hurt."

    Many things in the narrative cause me to doubt its veracity.

    I call BS.

    snopes.com: Gun Shop Robber

    Snopes calls true, so who knows.

    With lots of corrections though.

    The article has been floating around the internet for a few years, the original article may have been true but it seems to be growing
    "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier
    and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
    service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
    love and thanks of man and woman."

    -- Thomas Paine (The American Crisis, No. 1, 19 December 1776)

    Well, if Snopes says it’s somewhat true it must be…

    So I’ll call it a case of stupid suicide

    WRONG! This is a case of "MOST determined case of suicide!"
