PA:Robbers Killed by an Armed Citizen, Now The Families Want To Sue
usconcealedcarry.com ^ | 24 March, 2014 | Kevin Michalowski

Posted on 03/31/2014 6:30:00 AM PDT by marktwain

Sad but true, this is the way it works in the United States. Two men entered a convenience store, pointed their guns at the clerk, and robbed the store. As they exited the store, an armed citizen confronted them. The robbers pointed their guns at the honest citizen and he shot and killed both of them.

Now the family of one of the dead robbers wants “justice.” They want to sue the honest citizen. And leave it to the media to give the families of armed robbers a forum.

In what has become a cliché, the mother of an armed robber takes to the airwaves to say, “He was a good boy.” This family then has the nerve to say the robbers didn’t deserve to be shot; that an honest citizen had no right to fire at two “boys” who pointed their guns at him. The family then goes on to say that while their boy was a known drug user, he likely only robbed the store so he could get money to pay his child support. It is a seven-minute video, but it should make your blood boil:

And Now They Want to Sue…

If they manage to sue, they should lose and end up paying all the court and legal costs.

Their real gripe is they wont be able to claim the kid as a tax deduction anymore. Kids are considered ‘income’ in their world.

Yeah, the story notes that, but the family wants to force the armed citizen to rack up thousands of dollars in legal fees so that their armed robber thug can get their "justice."

Never mind the fact that they DID get their justice.

The shooter needs to to file a counter suit naming the family and the states. He needs to present evidence of what a horrible human dogpile the deceased was. He also needs to prove what horrible parents the dogpile had growing up. He needs to seek attorneys fees and damages for pain and suffering. He needs to sue the state for not taking better care of its dependents.

Of course there should be a lawsuit!

Dysfunctional family member doesn’t think private citizens should use guns to “take the the law into their own hands”. Doesn’t seem to have a big issue with private citizens using guns to break the law and terrorize innocents.

Warped family values led to this tragedy. Obama’s people.

“Convenience Store”, convenience stores have been the site of some real nightmare robberies, many in the past. Good to see a case where the good guy, the armed citizen, won.

There was another recent case where a citizen shot and killed a thug who had a handgun trained on a clerk.

The criminal's family said, I'm not kidding, that since the citizen had a chance to run away rather than defend the clerk that he should have just run away - and that he shouldn't have said anything about it to anyone.

They specifically said he should have not called police or anything because it "wasn't any of his business."

The family should be sued for not raising these immoral dirtball criminals better.

The women in the video is unfit to be a mother. She spews out kids but doesn’t raise them worth a flip. Her problem and no longer society’s problem.

Thanks to New Left archon Herbert Marcuse, an application of point 8 of 11 on the list of Frankfurt School (cultural communism) agenda items to “make the West stink”:

8. Foster an unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime.

This family then has the nerve to say the robbers didn’t deserve to be shot

This family is of a separate and distinct culture as different from ours as the Aztecs or the Huns. They are members of a hostile, alien, borderless nation that resides within our nation. It is deadly dangerous, outrageously expensive, and counter productive to allow this situation to continue.

..and the world mourns the loss of two more "aspiring rappers who were trying to turn their lives around".

The store clerk should counter-sue their parents for the cost of the bullets.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Interesting line.
If you own a car and your 35 yo son lives with you are you not required to name him on the insurance policy ‘just in case’ he should drive your car?

“WE” are responsible for our dependents, and if we ‘house’ them we have to take some kind of responsibility for their actions.

Kind of along the line of since I need a DRUG TEST to be able to work to pay taxes to eventually go to the ‘public sector’, shouldn’t ‘they’ be required to undergo drug tests to receive ‘OUR’ money????

Better yet…when a criminal in your family is caught or killed committing a crime, you should have to pay restitution to the party said criminal was victimizing. Maybe if these lousy “parents” had some skin in the game, they would actually pay attention to what their spawn was doing and who his friends were.

Anyone that kills street animals during a video-taped commission of a crime should be rewarded with 50% of what it would have cost to try and imprison the scum.

Two things, if they lose they will not have to pay the other party's court costs, and they probably would not have the money to pay them if they were responsible for the costs.

One of my coworkers just had a gun to his head 2 nights ago.

For $10

He carries 3 knives now because co. policy wont allow a gun carried by employees.

We are getting many new residents here from detroit.

Wonder why?

What these people are saying in this case and in the Trayvon Martin case, and in all their anti-SYG rhetoric is that

they want “their people” to be able to commit crimes of theft and violence without YT being able to legally resist.
