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.
