They all should have been shot for spending $1180 for a pair of sneakers. I bet the majority were being bought with welfare checks.
That's racist! No, seriously, these are two of the most blatantly racist things I've seen here. Shameful.Of course they were bought with welfare checks. When you have to work hard for your money tennis shoes are not a priority.
Neither statement mentions anything about anyone's race..."Shameful" that someone would try to turn a statement about "welfare checks" into a "blatantly racist" comment.That's racist! No, seriously, these are two of the most blatantly racist things I've seen here. Shameful.
You just stated the robber was armed and trying to rob at gunpoint. If that isn't life threatening I don't know what is.According to an interview I heard this morning (I live in Atlanta)the now deceased robber was trying to rob everyone in line at gunpoint.
Here's where I depart from a majority of the comments applauding the guy that shot and killed the robber.
Unless he (the robber) was threatening me or the other people in line with more than just taking money, I probably would not have shot him. However, the moment the situation looked like it was going to escalate from armed robbery to armed assault that's when I would take action.
Maybe that's what happened.
That being said
Maybe it's just me, but my stuff, money and other material things, are not worth taking another persons life.
Defending my wallet, does not rise to the standard of defending my life.
