Cooperation Does Not Equal Safety

The clerk cooperated with robber, he was shot anyway. Circle K clerk in critical condition after robbery, shooting; suspect found dead You have to watch the video, but they are taught to cooperate.
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.

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 didn't equal safety. So many folks opposed to self-defense don't like to hear that.

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.
