Sorry. Let's start over. The customer who shot the robber and, very likely, saved the lives of other customers stood up and did the right thing. This should happpen much more often.

Bet the only person with a carry permit for the guns was the guy that shot the turkeys.

More people defending themselves is contingent on more people causing people to defend themselves. The aZZhole that posted didn't wish the lawd for less robberies, he wished for more white men to shoot black men in robberies, I seen it and you seen it too what the poster was wishing for...and he didn't wish for less robberies, he wished for more people to be killed during criminal activity. Therefore, he wished for more criminal activity. End of freaking story.

He thought the other was saying that more robberies/crimes should happen, but was actually saying there should be more people fighting back like the customer did.
The only way there should be more people fighting back would be if there was more robberies. Which came first? The robbery or people fighting back? You can't have people fighting back against robbers unless there's more robberies. What the original poster did not say, was, "I wish there was less or no robberies". Correct?

More robberies? LOL...what you should be wishing for is LESS robberies! What you're wishing for is robberies to happen so that people can be shot, ya pig.

On the bright side, at least the parents of the would be robbers released a statement saying how simply waffle they feel over their sons' actions.

Why does Richard look like a chick?

He is too dense to realize that there is more than enough robbery going on, if more people carried, then there's more chance a bystander can take out a scum crook (regardless of their race).

I've seen Richard on many other threads, all it does it stir up crap and get a rise. He does it on purpose. He's an instigating troll.
So continue to argue with him and call him names cuz for some perverse reason it gives him affirmation.

stop being a jackass. the two men didnt actually complete the robbery, so technically the ccw did stop a crime. the crime he stopped was robbery. attempted robbery is what took place. it would have been robbery if the citizen hadn't STOPPED it, jackass. we all know what message the poster is trying to convey, there always has to be some moron like you come along and try to impose your genious on everyone

Years ago, while living in Tucson, Az, I came across a store that sold mineral samples, geodes, etc.

They had several large pallet boxes of geodes, sorted by size. Everyone one of those boxes of rocks was infinitely smarter than you.

You're command of the English language would seem to indicate you are only mildly acquainted with it.

So, "technically" since no crime occured the accused robbers are innocent.

So is the Waffle House corporation legal department coming to provide legal services for the shooter or is the shooter on their own? LOL.

I doubt that. But you hicks could be nice and quit saying the shooter "stopped a crime" and instead merely said that the shooter attempted a citizen's arrest. That would actually make sense from all aspects and would leave out the erronious "stopping a crime" which would make the alleged robbers not guilty. LOL.
