Sad but true, this is the way it works in the United States. Two men entered a convenience store, pointed their guns at the clerk, and robbed the store. As they exited the store, an armed citizen confronted them. The robbers pointed their guns at the honest citizen and he shot and killed both of them.
Now the family of one of the dead robbers wants “justice.” They want to sue the honest citizen. And leave it to the media to give the families of armed robbers a forum.
In what has become a cliché, the mother of an armed robber takes to the airwaves to say, “He was a good boy.” This family then has the nerve to say the robbers didn’t deserve to be shot; that an honest citizen had no right to fire at two “boys” who pointed their guns at him. The family then goes on to say that while their boy was a known drug user, he likely only robbed the store so he could get money to pay his child support. It is a seven-minute video, but it should make your blood boil:
And Now They Want to Sue…
Here is a seven-minute news story about a man who did everything right, and the families of the robbers he shot want to sue him. Prepare yourself for any eventuality. Families like this have no shame and will try anything to get paid after their “good boys” get shot robbing a store.
What kinds of people believe this garbage?
The robbers may have been good boys right up until the minute they pulled out guns and stuck them in the face of a scared convenience store clerk and robbed him. At that point they became thugs and hardened criminals. Within minutes of doing that they pointed their guns at another honest citizen. But despite that, they were “good boys.” Their families say they were good boys even though they died in the street with their guns drawn.
They were not good boys. Good boys don’t do that, not even for child support money.
But the scary part of this is that the families of these thugs want to sue the man who ended their life of crime. And even though the state of Pennsylvania does not allow lawsuits against those involved in a justified self-defense incident, the families of the dead robbers can still file their paperwork. This means the honest citizen will still have to respond in some way. He may rack up legal fees while the courts move to dismiss the case. He still has to put up with the headaches and the stress this situation brings. He is still living in fear of retaliation from the “good families” of these “good boys.”
