Who cares if he dies?

He's an armed robber. If he doesn't die, the clerk needs to be sent back to the range.

Good job

I don't wish this robber to die but I am glad to see a store clerk finally taking matters into their own hands to stop this type of criminal behavior. When a robber puts a gun in a clerk's face he's asking for what ever he gets.


I hope it hurts and that he is left with a life long injury for his cowardly criminal act.
