Suspected Robber? At what point is someone no longer a suspect but actually a criminal?
Memo to would-be-home-robbing criminals:
Multiply this incident by 8 million gun owners in America and then ask yourself if you feel lucky today.

Unless you mean at least 80 million, I would the say the odds are definitely on the criminals' side.
