Bandit sues Rochester, N.Y.,auto shop he tried to rob for beating him up
Associated Press ^ | Jun 09, 2006 | AP

Posted on 06/11/2006 8:54:50 AM PDT by george76

A man is suing an auto-parts store for assault and battery after he attempted to hold up the business and employees responded by beating him with a metal pipe.

Dana Buckman, 46, walked into an auto shop brandishing a semiautomatic pistol July 5, 2005, only to have it turned on him by employees Eli Crespo and Jerry Vega, police said.

The men beat Buckman with a metal pipe and held him with his own gun.

Buckman escaped, only to be arrested a week later.

He pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and was sentenced to 18 years in prison as a repeat violent felon.

Now Buckman has claimed the men chased him out of the store and continued to beat him.

He is suing the auto shop and the two men for the injuries he suffered and for intentionally inflicted emotional distress.

Crespo and Vega could not be reached for comment.

I think this case should be settled out of court for an appropriate amount. Somewhere between $0.02 and $0.25 would be about right.

Buckman should be charged with extortion for filing this lawsuit.

Buckman should consider moving to the UK, where law-abiding citizens are prevented by law from defending themselves.

Absent such a move, he should consider another line of work. Maybe as a tort lawyer or something like that.

He and his lawyer should be countersued. This is nuts.

If you outlaw metal pipes, only outlaws will have metal pipes.

I have found the Search option to be a tad touchy.

I've found that sometimes it takes a couple of variations to pull down an old story.

The stuff that bugs me is when you have 4 or 5 copies of the same story on the front page. Or when something happens Friday afternoon and is headline news in the MSM, it gets posted all weekend long and then people start reposting on Monday morning.

Now oddball local stuff is good anytime. :-)

Don't fret. Sometimes (often, I think) the same story will be carried by different outlets, but have different headlines.

The guy comes in to the store to rob them, with a gun, meaning to the store owner, that this bad guy is willing to murder to accomplish his theft.

The store owner should have had his own gun and rightfully killed this perp, then he wouldn't be around to sue anyone.

Thanks for the ping. I saw the original story (folks pinged me to that one) but since it was last July, I don't really want to count it as a true instance of Armed Citizenship. It might make runner-up on my next ping.

Charge Buckman the fee. No wait, he needs the money. So does his slimey lawyer.

Regretfully, he will probably win especially with the present court system and moronic law interpretations by equally crooked judges.

Just a thought

Hopefully some in the Rochester area will make some noise.

"PROVE IT."

Doesn't matter. These guys now have to spend money on legal fees to defend themselves against this lawsuit. Win or lose they will be out big bucks. Meanwhile, the scumbag probably has a lawyer paid for by you and me.

Our legal system just enabled the perp to succeed in robbing these guys after all.

If I were Crespo and Vega I would request a consultation with Buckkman to talk things over--and bring my pipe with me.
