Clerk Chris Spears was working alone at the Circle K off LaGrange Road in Lyndon, when police say Rickey Watson walked in armed with a gun and robbed the store.Cooperation didn't equal safety. So many folks opposed to self-defense don't like to hear that.
According to fellow employee Jeff La Duke, Spears did as he was trained, but the robber still shot him in the chest and left him to die.
Cooperation is a strategy, not a guarantee. Like any strategy, it isn't perfect. Violent criminals don't stop being violent criminals because you act like a sheep.
