What Happens if You Cooperate With Criminals But They Aren't Satisfied?

Invader may have watched house, sheriff's officials say | Fort Worth | Star-Telegram.com A hundred dollars in cash and a rare coin collection wasn't enough. (Why don't criminals realize that honest folks keep our money in the bank?) So he got pissed off.
“The suspect demanded more. They offered up their vehicles,” Simonds said. “Sometime around that point, the suspect struck Jill Huddleston and that’s when the homeowners began to fight back.”

Sheriff’s officials said the couple used items around the house -- including a kitchen knife and a potted plant -- in the attempt to defend themselves.
Cooperating with violent criminals will not stop them from being violent.

Self-defense works, even when you have to improvise.

Of course the gun the goblin had, turned out to be unloaded, which made everything easier.

The bad guy had been stabbed several times and died while sheriff's deputies were taking him into custody.

Self-defense is a human right, and it works. Furthermore, cooperating with criminals is no guarantee of safety. In this case, the homeowners didn't have enough cash to keep him happy.

Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
