I Thought Cooperation Was Supposed to Ensure Safety?

Another violent criminal didn't get that memo. Clerk shot during robbery
A clerk at a popular game store was Monday even after he gave up the money.
But he gave up the money and a game or two. But he still got shot.

This quote caught my eye.
"There was no real reason to shoot but he did anyway,” said Lt. Eddie Appleby from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
The reason is that violent criminals don't stop being violent criminals because you act like a sheep. Apparently the police don't realize that.

Cooperation is a strategy. It is not a guarantee of safety. Resistance is also a strategy. There are no guarantees. So will you act like a sheep, or defend yourself?
