    Customer with concealed gun kills 7-Eleven robbery suspect

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. ó Authorities in North Carolina say a customer armed with a concealed gun shot two robbery suspects at a 7-Eleven, killing one and injuring the other.

    Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police spokeswoman Cindy A. Wallace said in a news release that two suspects held the customer at gunpoint and took his wallet early Thursday morning.

    That's when they say the customer "perceived a lethal threat" and pulled out his gun and shot the suspects.

    Sorry, Brad, but you'll have to show me the traditional spelling of "Qwanterrius."

    I made fun of the name because of the willfully ignorant conceit which spawned it.
    I am neither a fan of willful ignorant conceit, nor am I particularly tolerant of it.

    I apologize, if I offended you.

    That might have been tongue in cheek...

    Why not, it's a stupid name! Plus the mother did not think ahead... Look how much more the stonemason will charge?

    The most righteous part of this story: "the customer will not face charges."

    Whether a robber is holding a gun on you before taking your wallet or after taking it doesn't matter, except for one thing: If you've seen their face, they're more likely to kill you afterwords than before.

    Doesn't mean they will shoot you, but why wait to find out the hard way? If they do manage to get the drop on you and shoot you, the moment that happens, you're way behind the curve. Not a great place to be.


    Stay ahead of the curve.

    If you are involved in a crime scene, YOU! It will most likely be a sudden, dynamic act.
    A sudden, unforeseen one. You are being targetted. Just minding your own business, thinking about something or other. Then "You got a light?" Cigarette in mouth, right hand in pocket, too close to you!

    Now, what to do?

    I found the traditional spelling. It means:

    View History

    Quanterrius (m)

    Your name of*Quanterrius makes you spontaneous and versatile, enjoying congenial association, appreciating the finer things of life, and loving to talk and debate.

    *You are strong willed and self-sufficient, not depending on others for encouragement.

    *Your desire for independence and freedom means that you seldom tolerate limitations.

    *Although you are naturally happy and generous, you fail to hold friendships because you are inclined to be too dogmatic, argumentative, or sarcastic.

    *In an argument, you usually emerge the victor, but at a cost.
    The last bullet point was not true in this case.

    ...Step to his hand-in-pocket side, so he can't draw down directly at you, and offer him a light.
    Or, as I do, make the same move and reply, "Sorry. I don't smoke."
