1 Dead After Shooting At Orlando Gas Station
WFTV ^ | 6-1-2014 | WFTV

Posted on 06/01/2014 5:44:27 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

ORLANDO, Fla. — A request for money led to a fight which left one man shot dead outside an Orlando convenience store Sunday morning.

Orange County deputies were called to a 7-Eleven in the 800 block of Lee Rd. around 5 a.m. Sunday in reference to a shooting.

Once on scene, deputies found a man in his late 20’s in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Investigators say the shooting victim had approached a customer at the store, identified as a man in his 40’s, and asked for money.

“The incident remains under investigation but detectives say the shooting appears to be justified and and don’t expect the shooter to face any charges.”

smart detectives.

The “asking for money” thing is just a trick to put you off your guard and to get close enough to pull their pistol/knife on you.

NEVER let anyone get within 10 feet of you at one of these places, especially at night, without being ready to draw your CCW. NEVER!

Do not pull out your iPhone and start texting or emailing while you’re pumping gas, don’t look down, scan the area around you so you can see trouble coming.

Begging at gas stations is big in Fort Worth. A couple weeks ago a guy asked if I could spare $50 to gas up his car.

I would suspect the dead perp was a well known local thug and the police thinks of it as taking out the trash...

Warning to all dirt bags, the north east US is where you want to be, they are largely a gun free zone. The South is not, and has no problem “taking out the trash”.

Mass, Conn, and NYNY has the welcome mat out for these types.

That's pretty bold...50 dollars...!!!

Last week in Tampa I was approached to give a guy $20 to gas up his car for some bogus reason...

I blew him off politely, he came back a few minutes later looking for bus fare money...

This time I told "Dude, I carry. back off"

He just about ran away...

BTW, I used to live in cowtown...great town...

It is how he was asking for money that matters.

Apparently he didn't ask nicely.

When I told him no, he went to the next pump, then all the way down the line. When I left he was approaching people in parked cars. Unfortunately the beggers have all descended to gas stations. They curse you out if you don’t give them anything. My city has become a magnet for bums drawn to our sanctuary city status. It’s time to move.

It’s getting bad in the DFW area in general. There’s a push to turn Texas blue.

The last time someone came up to me begging for money at a gas station, I told him I had no money to spare because I was using a stolen credit card to fuel up a stolen car ... and I was hoping I'd have enough gas to make it to the Canadian border before the owner reported his stolen car and wallet to the police.

You can imagine the kind of look I got before that guy quickly walked away.

What is it about 7-11’s and bums? Yesterday, a fat, tie dye shirt clad bum asked me for money as I exited a 7-11.

The other option is to learn how to say “I’m sorry, but I don’t speak English” in some exotic foreign language that nobody begging for money in the U.S. would ever understand. LOL.

For a while it was big here in Calif too. Guy would come up to you with a gas can and ask if you would give him a gallon of gas while you were pumping.

I would see them coming and look them in the eye and shake my head and say, “NO!”. Occasionally they would get abusive but if they came in range they were gunna get doused with gasoline.

Hasn’t happened in a while though.

And girls, never leave your purse on the car seat with unlocked doors while you pump gas. There’s been a rash of thugs driving up, snatching purses of the car seats and taking off before you even know what’s happening!

Isn’t Philadelphia still in Pa? You won’t find dirtbags in rural areas where gun owners live, it is bad for their health.

The only difference in concealed carry law in Philadelphia and the rest of the state, is that you apply at the police department's gun permit unit instead of the county sheriff's office and that the same license is required for open carry. (Though they can make your life miserable if you open carry) You also have to wait about 8 weeks to get it. In some counties you can walk in and walk out less than an hour later. A license issued in any county is good in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

Wow, this happens to me fairly often in a decent part of Fort Worth next to a not-so-decent part. Usually I’m being “profiled.”

not the worst part of town. not the best.

On the west side of I-4; the east side takes you to Winter Park, where all the high class people are (Rollins College, Morse Museum, etc.), while the west side used to have middle-level hotels, which are now lower-level.

Removing the blinders for a moment, we have been in the Obama depression for years now. The middle class is being strongly squeezed, with many becoming poor, and many of the poor are leading hand to mouth lives.

Were it not distorted by government and charity food aid, by now we would have Obamavilles full of starving people.

For many, begging and crime start to appear more reasonable. However, because much of the citizenry are now armed, it is a great persuader to the new criminals to not be violent criminals, as it could get them shot.

Except for the stupid minority, like this guy shot at the gas station.

At the same time, there is now a quiet explosion of non-violent crimes, such as shoplifting, petty theft, you name it. I imagine that right now there is also a major upturn in non-streetwalking prostitution. Typically women in their 20s and 30s, working out of suburbia, with a limited number of customers who are discreet.

Such women and their customers are almost never arrested.

Out here in the oil patch since I started counting a few years ago I have been hit up 26 times by bums. Twice by blacks, four times by Mexicans, once by a bleached blonde white tramp with a black boyfriend and nineteen times by white scum. Nearly all were at fueling stops.

We had an area cop bust one of these a-holes and the rodent had four thousand dollars on him. He was his own bank since he did not trust the money to be left near his cohorts.

A former coworker had the same black guy hit him up three times over a two year span always with different stories.

You never seem to be prepared for them but I think next time I want to scare one into thinking I am a serial killer.

Just make a ‘sanpaku eyes’ look at them and look all around real suspicious while telling them in a panicked, shaky voice... “DUDE, get the f#ck away from here, you’re gonna bring the heat. I’ve got two bodies in my trunk and gotta get outta here... I don’t need you attractin’ attention and all like that last bitch did...”

“Nearly all were at fueling stops.”

No accident there; they have to get you where you can’t hide.

A friend that works near Penn Station in Newark describes a situation reminiscent of scenes from the old zombie movies of the 80s, where zombies surround a fenced-in compound trying to get at the live people inside. During the workday the area is teeming with cops that keep most of the gibsmedats away from the white people; as 5:00 comes and goes the police start withdrawing and the gibsmedats start to press in. You have to get out of there quickly at that point; if you have to pass between buildings and the gibsmedats have broken the original perimeter you wait for other whites to catch up (like the convoy system to protect against U-boat attacks)...

“So much for “hey buddy, can you spare a dime”!”

It seems the minimum is about $5 now at some intersections in Newark NJ; smarter people are all buttoned up when they come to a red light, but some naive people can’t secure their vehicle by the time they realize what has happened (the gibsmedat is already halfway through their window).

At one point in the summer I saw a Hindu selling flowers, a Hispanic selling cold bottled water, and a black guy just asking for money all at the same intersection...
