Dumb crook

    The following mind-boggling attempt at a crime
    spree in Washington , DC appeared to be the robber's
    first (and last), due to his lack of a previous record
    of violence, and his terminally stupid choices:
    1. His target was H&J Leather & Firearms; A
    gun shop specializing in handguns.
    2. The shop was full of customers -
    firearms customers.
    3. To enter the shop, the robber had to
    step around a marked police patrol car parked at the
    front door.
    4. A uniformed officer was standing at the
    counter, having coffee before work. 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,
    the police officer with a 9mm GLOCK 17, the clerk with
    a 50 DESERT EAGLE, assisted by several customers who
    also drew their guns, several of whom also drew 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 in the exchange of fire.
  2. Sad part is, his family will probably sue everyone and win. They'll claim it wasn't his fault he was stupid and that everyone else used excessive force to defend themselves. :coco:

  3. If they get a really good lawyer they will sue the gun companies involved.

    You know, since the Dems won't pass comprehensive tort reform...
  4. Terminal Stupidity

    Wow...what a story. Sounds to me like a suicide act. I would have to investigate it from that angle. Too many circumstances here that would lead me to believe that is/was a possibility.

    What newspaper was this story found in?

  5. To paraphrase the incredibly funny Ron White..."Nice shootin' Poot..."
  6. That obviously the first time he had robbed someone.
