    Default No charges for Metro PCS store worker who fatally shot would-be robber in Southwest P

    https://www.inquirer.com/news/metro-...-20190831.html
    "The employee who fatally shot an armed man attempting to rob a Metro PCS store on Monday in Southwest Philadelphia will not face criminal charges, the District Attorney’s Office and Police Department said this week.

    The employee, who has not been identified, can be seen in a store surveillance video quickly drawing his handgun and firing after the man, whose name has not been released, entered the tiny business at 7003 Elmwood Ave. clearly holding a gun and throwing a small bag on the counter.

    Police said they were withholding the dead man’s name pending notification of his family."

    Is Tuesday trash day? Leave him at the curb for pick-up.

    "The store has been hit by robbers several times in recent months, said Heather Ayres, who works across the street at a pizza shop.The store has been hit by robbers several times in recent months, said Heather Ayres, who works across the street at a pizza shop."

    Looks like all shots landed - great job - right to slide lock.
    Now all the league guys here can ask where is the mag swap - Wink

    Luv this line - didn't know we were supposed to have "a look":


    "About a month ago, a new phone store employee started showing up for lunch at Hot Spot Pizza.

    Polite, very nice” was how Ayres described her new daily customer.

    Never had the impression he had a license to carry,” she added."

    Heinlein was right:
    "An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life."

    Believe those little stores are franchises, so this employee will most likely NOT be dismissed.

    "Will not face criminals charges" may be an accurate statement, but seems to me to imply he did something questionable and got a pass. Is it just me?
    Legislating to prevent people's acts is fantasy

    All shootings are attempted homicide, or homicide, and have to be investigated.

    If an exception is valid, then it is applied, and the homicide is justified.

    I think gun toters forget this fact.

    Being a robber is like being a fireman or a police officer. It's a dangerous profession.
