NBC – A Jacksonville, Fla., dollar store customer shot and killed a robber Monday night, According to the report, the customer — a 57-year-old grandfather — and two store employees were inside the Dollar General store Monday around 9 p.m. when two armed men entered the store with the intention to rob it. “One of them had the clerk and one of them was at the front cash register,” Lt. Rob Schoonover of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told Jacksonville.com. The customer, who has a concealed weapon permit, shot and killed one of the intruders, FirstCoastNews.com reported. “He’s always been a marksman,” the man’s wife told Jacksonville.com. “He shoots in competitions, but this is the first time he’s ever killed anyone and I don’t know how he’ll handle that.”
Is there anything more embarrassing than getting shot to death trying to rob a Dollar Store? I mean we ain’t talking Tiffany’s here. This is a fucking dollar store. The most expensive item in a dollar store costs 1 dollar. The register can’t have more than 20 bucks in it right? You think you’re going in for an easy quick score so you can grab a pack of smokes and some hardo takes out his gun and just shoots you dead in cold blood. At a fucking god damn dollar store. Like if you’re going to risk your life you might as well rob a bank or something. Just no dignity going down robbing a dollar store. This guy is totally never going to live this down.
