Caught on CCTV: The terrifying moment robber was shot dead after storming internet cafe
dailymail.co.uk ^ | 4-21-11 | By Paul Bentley

Posted on 04/21/2011 3:34:22 AM PDT by rawhide

This is the terrifying moment two armed robbers stormed a Florida internet cafe, in a dramatic shoot-out which left one man dead.

Chilling footage shows the men, dressed in dark clothing and bandannas, charge into the store before being confronted by a security guard.

Customers can be seen hiding under their chairs and computer screens as bullets rip through the store.

The security guard then shoots down one of the robbers, 21-year-old Gary Bryant, who crawls away from the store to a getaway car before being dumped by his accomplices in a nearby parking lot.

Bryant later died in hospital after being picked up by police.

Okay. Is it me, or does anyone think it is bizarre to have a security guard at an “Internet Cafe”?

Could be the neighborhood, I know, but...still.

Local reports suggest the internet cafe may have been targeted because similar stores in the area are functioning secretly as illegal gambling joints.

Internet gambling?

I guess... I will say this: That guard is damned lucky he isn't dead. It looked like that perp who got shot actually had a gun to the guard's head for a second, but got distracted and the cop backed up and got away. I guess crack will distract you like that. Fortunately, the perp was likely an amateur. Check out this comment left on YouTube (Note: I never read them because 99% of the tiime, people who post comments there haven't got two brain cells to rub together) "...Isn't it a little harsh shooting a guy in the back when the situation is already over? I mean in Finland, the guard would get life for this..."

what were the robbers trying to take? They just waltz in and waltz out. Didn’t they know there was a guard there before they tried to rob the place? The guard was lucky I suppose. The robbers could’ve shot him while he was reaching for his gun

Some of the comments made at the link:

The video made my day, brought a smile to my face. You have to also love the loyalty of his friends when they dumped him in a parking lot to die, priceless!

Shot in the back eh? What a hero.

Who says there is no good news in the papers these days. If every crime ended this way crime levels would drop to zero in no time at all.

I really don't think I'd like to live in a country that needs an armed guard in an Internet Cafe.

Well done ! The dead man is certainly no loss to society. We are spared the cost of a trial complete with a "public" defender demanding this perp's rights. We are spared years of expense keeping this man in prison. It is a shame that the others escaped unharmed. Two more well placed rounds and the whole problem would have been solved at NO EXPENSE to the tax payer.

Odd how this was all caught on microphones. Usually its only the video not video with synced audio. And someone spliced the two feeds together in this video and uploaded it rather quickly.

They were planning on doing a “Pulp Fiction”. You can just hear the clever conversation? “Bro...nobody ever does Internet Cafes. All those dopes there with all their money, gambling on the Internet...we just walk in...”

Great planning. They even had plastic bags for the people to put their wallets in.

I thought it was odd the dead perp went and picked up his empty bag before he left. Might have saved his life if he had not taken the extra time to have done that?

Perhaps he didn't want to be called a litterbug?

His injuries did not seem that severe, thought admittedly it’s hard to tell from here. I suspect that if he had been attended to promptly, he would be alive today. A little basic first aide and evacuation to the hospital probably would have saved his life. These jamokes are idiots.

Animals. Bloody animals. Note the lyrics of the rap as the video starts...sounded like “white guys” and “back of the head”.

Nah. Rap and Hip Hop are fun and safe.

His ‘homies’, after they went to high ground, left him at the motel to die. No 911 call. No drop off in front of the emergency room. They left him high and dry.

With ‘homies’ like that, who need emenies?

Yes. They just dumped the guy there to die. Not that I have any sympathy for him. Hard but true, but...that is the honor in the hood, right? Hang out with those guys, soon enough, you are the one being dumped on the roadside as “your peeps” speed away to save their own skin.

I think they never really thought it through. They dumped him assuming that the magic ambulance fairy would patch him up and send him home. These are guys who have never really had to do anything, take any initiative or responsibility. They have been derived of maturity and the opportunity to grow up by the welfare state that turns them out onto the street at age 18 as feral animals.

I went on a day trip to New York City a few years ago. Every single store had security guards. I don't recall if the restaurant we stopped at for lunch had them. I guess it's necessary to have them in some areas.

“Internet gambling?”

Yes. The way I had it described to me recently for a nearby shop was that they charge $6/hr for access. For that they are auto-entered into numerous jackpot drawings and can ‘do whatever’ during their internet usage. There are links provided for online gambling sites and that’s what most people go there for because the chance of gambling + the jackpot is better odds than playing at home.

From what I’ve heared one nearby establishment grosses over 25k a week.

They are outlawed in Pinellas county.

I wonder if those aren’t just video poker games. I can’t imagine those women going in there just to Twitter. For some reason, they cut off the audio when the guy first got shot. By reading his lips, it appears he said, “Oooch, that smarts!”

“An armed society is a polite society”. States which deprive the citizens their 2nd Amendment rights have to provide protection from criminals because only the anointed and criminals have arms.

Hmm, sounds a bit like the "video poker" business that was all over Louisiana years before the casinos finally got a foothold in New Orleans. Certain "connected" people got the licenses for those machines and usually placed them in bars that were well guarded (because of the cash flow). In this case, the money is separated from the "gaming equipment", but it is there on-site just the same.

Fantastic news! I’m just sorry that the other criminals weren’t killed during the robbery. Now our beyond pathetic criminal injustice system will have to deal with the other sub-humans. The sub-humans when caught will be given free morally challenged “lawyers” (public defenders) at our expense who will try to get the criminals set free so they can prey on other innocent people, and if relevant evidence is not thrown out by the court because of the insane “exclusionary rule” they will be sent to prison at our expense for much less time than they deserve.

“what were the robbers trying to take?”

wondering that too...it’s not like you would have a lot of cash on hand and it looks like a ‘no frills’ cafe...

maybe they were going to rob each person; it looked like he had a bag with him-the guy that got shot.

Different world, I guess.

Internet cafes I have seen were fairly quiet places, stiflingly boring to the point I would rather forgo the Internet than to frequent them.

But since you put it that way...I suppose not.

These guys would have been much better off working in a sweat shop or plowing a field or assembling components in a factory between the ages of 10 and 18 than incarcerated in the custody of the educrats. American education is an expensive and dismal failure and welfare produces feral animals unfit to live among civilized people.

(DISCLAIMER: I have known fine people from NYC, and there are even some conservatives there, so this post excepts those people from inclusion in it.)

I have avoided NYC for my entire life, with the exception of landing there or driving through.

I took my wife there for her birthday, theater, the whole nine yards.

I loved it, because I was there with her, and it was all for her, what she wanted. But I really detest that place. It was filthy, dirty, smelly, beggarly, the cab driver got pulled over and ticketed on three of first four cabs we took (!!!!) and there was this sign across from the USS Intrepid that summed it up for me:

I'll go to a city like that because I love my wife. But that is it.

Wow. I grew up in New York City in the 50’s and 60’s. In the 1950’s there were about 50 homicides a year, one a week and there had not been a homicide on the subways in 25 years. You could safely walk through almost any neighborhood at night. I left at the height of the Dinkins terror, when the homocide rate approached 2,000/year, six a day, more on Saturday.

Back in the day, I doubt there was much visible security even at Tiffany’s, much less at a discount store. Think “Miracle on 34th Street” to get a flavor of what life was like then. Think, “Fort Apache, the Bronx” for now.

Two things killed New York City: welfare migration from the South and unchecked third world immigration in the last couple of decades.

video about the riot/shooting in the East St Louis club.

I notice that chairs seem to be a preferred weapon amongst these animals. I don't quite understand why I didn't see any bodies or blood though.
