I Thought Cooperating with Criminals Was Supposed to Ensure Safety

I guess these guys didn't get that memo. Suspects in fatal robbery at Phillipsburg gas station head to Warren County over murder charges
Shortly after midnight, Flowers and Torres allegedly approached 47-year-old attendant Kismathdas Kasam, demanding money and the ring off his finger at gunpoint. After Kasam handed over about $500, investigators say Torres fired a single shotgun blast into Kasam's right leg. The Phillipsburg resident, a native of India, died of his injuries three days later.
He did what they told him to do. And they shot him.

Cooperating with criminals is a strategy. Like any strategy, it won't work 100% of the time, but I don't think it works half the time. Too often today, the criminals don't care, are on drugs, or just want to make sure no one can identify them. Acting like a sheep isn't a strategy that appeals to me.
