    I'm not sure I would have risked my life or my wife's life by pointing my piece at an armed robber with a rifle/shotgun in his hand, but hey that's just me. Cool story, though.

    Store Robbed Twice by Same Man
    One robbery suspect got away the first time. But when he came beck for more, it was a different story, thanks to an off-duty security guard. It all started Wednesday night, when the suspect allegedly robbed the Conoco Express Mart near Longview Road and Manchester. Then Thursday afternoon, workers say the same man, with a mask and a rifle, came back for more. One clerk gave the suspect the cash. But another took off after him. The security officer spotted the chase, and followed in his car. The officer ordered the man to get down on the ground, where he held the suspect until police arrived.

    PlatinumWRX,

    I do armed security/loss prevention for local businesses. Why do you say Missouri kicks ass?


    Thanks,
    Steve-O,

    I didn't know the story would be there.

    Will the pulling the e-brake really mess up the tranny?

    Thanks all I just saw an opportunity to help.

    If more people did what he did, there would be fewer robberies. If the kid didn't want to risk being shot dead he shouldn't have committed an armed robbery.

    Sure. I do. It would also be stupid and unethical of me to do absolutely nothing while I talk about how bad the world is. My intention was to follow him not capture him- he ended up seeing me and running. I saw an opportunity to help.

    If more people did what he did alot of innocent bystanders would be killed. So if a suspect is driving in wreckless speeds and the cops have not gotten there, do you follow? No, that is a good way to kill someone.

    First off that was wreckless driving, second he did not know what the reaction was gonna be from the suspect when told to stop. If the suspect shot and killed his wife then is he a hero? Third, IT WAS ONLY $140 and maybe 300 because of the prevous robberies that they BELIEVED was the same guy.

    Sorry, but if I did that in my town I would have been in cuffs.

    Dont get me wrong,I am glad that nothing bad happen to you and your wife but I would never do something like that. Now if he was kidnapping a child or had killed someone then that is different, but money is no reason to die.

    I felt the same exact way and was going to bash him until that I read that he was an actual security gaurd.

    Sometimes people try to act like a hero and are REALLY stupid, doing more harm than good (pretty much any civilian trying to disrupt a car chase). That pisses me off. It also pisses me off when guys don't do ANYTHING (like that one time some guy shot a lawyer, put his gun away and walks while cameramen just film).

    My point is, it's good to be brave and smart. It's stupid to take action just to try to be a hero. The other point is that some people have AWFUL judgement. In most cases it's best to leave it to the cops.
