Cooperate and Still Get Shot

This guy didn't get the memo. The one about not shooting people who cooperate with your demands. Forest Park convenience store clerk shot during robbery | Massachusetts Local News -
He shot the clerk apparently because he felt the man was not emptying the register quickly enough, Delaney said. After the shooting, the robber jumped over the counter and grabbed money out of the register before fleeing the store, he said.
People who hate individual action like to say that if you just "give the criminal, what he wants," you will be OK. (They never seem to consider what a woman faced with a rapist should do....) But cooperation doesn't guarantee safety. Violent criminals don't stop being violent because you are thinking happy thoughts.
