I hope the clerk is okay.


if the clerk would have shot him, would it have been a racist attack? Too bad the taser didn't work, or the clerk could have had a baseball bat and beat him into submission.

We will be seeing stories of how he is a good boy - a victim of his surroundings - no accounting for his stupidity.

racist attack?

Have you ever been in shop n go? All of the cashiers are black so I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have been a racist attack. She still should have shot him.. oh yeah guns aren't allowed in convenience store by employees, the only ones allowed to have weapons are the criminals that are gonna kill you over twenty bucks.

Not all stores

Remember the clerk that shot the robber at the Wrightsville Country store in 2011?

The clerk at wrightsville

The clerk at wrightsville store was the owner...he was protected n y a slightly different law.
