    What's most unbelievable to me is how afraid they were of the robber. I suppose if they'd quickly and properly subdued him they'd have broken some law. :uhoh:

    Man- they do not have the killer instinct. Shoving a pencil full depth into the jerks eye or ear would have really calmed him down.

    It's not about crime, it's about control.

    Weapon control has always worked wherever it has been implemented. It has taken weapons from the good people and given them to the bad. From the Saxons, to King Hank and the Assize of Arms to today, it's all about the control, then it's about the bling bling.

    One more piece of evidence why Americans are superior ;)

    A little thing called a Louisville Slugger would have cleaned up that situation in a hurry. I can almost hear the **crack** of the hardwood right now...

    Yep. People who seek to control others are usually seriously unbalanced, in my experience.

    Don't think a bat would have been much more effective than the bar. When quarters are close like that, you need something pretty short if you're going to rely on blunt trauma for self-defense. A 4 D-Cell maglite would have ended that confrontation double quick the first time the robber tried to come over the counter.

    Then he could have lain there for 20 minutes waiting for the cops to show. :rolleyes:

    If I were the owner, I'd fire the useless dufus who took the fire extinguisher and then faded into the back room...

    Well, I guess if you can't use firearms or knives in self-defense, it's a good thing the cops respond quickly. :barf: :fire:
