WEST PALM BEACH — A man died this morning after being shot by an officer while trying to rob a McDonald's restaurant on Okeechobee Boulevard near Congress Avenue.

A homeland security agent walked into the restaurant at 2421 Okeechobee Boulevard just after midnight and shot the man as he was trying to rob the eatery, West Palm Beach Police Spokesman Chase Scott said.

The man, whose name was not released by police, was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center, where he later died from his injuries.

The man was dressed as a woman at the time of the robbery, Scott said.

Another example of workplace violence the Dems will use to pad the statistics used for trying to ban guns

Men wearing women's clothing should be banned. If it were this never would have happened.

These criminal scum need deported to a Devils Island type of place where they can live amongst their own for life, and not corrupt or threaten the rest of society. I also include too the crooked pols (Both Ds and Rs), CEOs and Wall St banksters in their lot that have caused so much damage but have paid so little in price, and they need deported too to the same place. Put them together.

Trivia...
The 1972 Lou Reed hit, “Take A Walk On The Wildside” was produced by David Bowie.
The saxophone solo played during the fadeout was performed by Ronnie Ross,
who taught Bowie how to play the saxophone in Bowie’s childhood.

Now that is rare. A cop is actually there when a place gets robbed. One for Ripley’s Believe It Or Not.

At least the perp was taken down before he/she could jump the counter and pummel the order-taker.

If he hadn’t been wearing women’s clothes, an innocent life would have been spard!

Congress should pass a law against cross-dressing to save lives!

I hope the guy from Homeland Security has a lot of luck finding a new job after he gets fired for doing his job.

He needs to worry more about ending up in jail and having the perps family sue him for everything he has.

I am guessing this was a racially motivated attempt to deprive a gender confused citizen of their constitutional right to achieve economic justice.

No...men wearing women's clothing and ordering food at McDonald's should be banned.

Although, with the way their prices have gone up, I'm surprised they haven't lost the cross-dressing hamburger-eating market entirely.

It is rather amusing when you see a story like this, to say to yourself, “KA-CHING! The taxpayers save 2 million dollars!”

That is the approximate cost of the trial and imprisonment of a violent criminal for the typical sentence. So you can only do the “KA-CHING!” if the criminal dies.

Makes the clear case for concealed carry by all good citizens. The fact that this armed individual was there was clearly just a case of good luck.

Yep. Drunk driving as well. A couple of years ago, a federal bankruptcy judge from MA got nailed for DWI in NH. He was wearing women’s clothes.

You'd like my prison reform plan. I propose that heavily armed prison guards be stationed outside prison walls and food, medical supplies and small arms and ammo be air dropped to prisoners on the inside. Maybe .22 or .25 caliber and only enough to arm about half the inmates.

The prison population would start decreasing very rapidly.

Amen, my brother! The citizens of West Palm Beach should be nominating this man as OFFICER OF THE YEAR!

Years ago, the McDonald’s in our neighborhood gave the cops free meals. It was a great way to have the police always hanging around. Wonder if they still do that?

"The man was dressed as a woman at the time of the robbery, Scott said."

I can see some ambulance-chaser suing for a "Hate Crime" against a "transgender".

Not really a cop. A homeland security agent in a pretty blue shirt and a badge. Glad the guy was there, though.

A horrible mistake. Apparently, the officer mistook the suspect for a family pet...

Somehow, the left-wing food Nazis will spin this into “eating at McDonald’s will kill you.”
