Of course cooperation with violent criminals does not turn them into non-violent criminals.
[The victim] said he handed over his wallet and turned to run but was shot in the right hand and right shoulder.So cooperation resulted in injury. He gave the robber "what he wanted." He handed over his wallet. What happened to his safety.
Violent criminals are not changed by your actions. You can cooperate if you want. I will choose self-defense whenever possible.
The good news is the victim is out of the hospital, and a suspect is in custody.
