A man goes inside a gun shop. Takes out a machete hidden in his jacket and demands the shop owner for guns threatening to attack him with the machete. The owner then pulls out a gun from underneath his drawer and warns the man to put down the machete or he’ll shoot. Instead of backing off, the intruder tried to advance and consequently was shot once in the stomach.
The man didn’t die. Unfortunately! He was later charged with assault with intent to rob. For his stupidity I say he deserves to be shot 10 times in the head to spill his useless brains out of his thick skull. How much more dumb can a person get? Holding up a gun shop with a machete! He might as well have used a fly swatter. At least that would have caused the owner to die laughing.
Warning: Stupidity can be communicable!
If you think the man was stupid then you don’t know anything about (in)justice NZ-style. Listen to this, the owner of the shop who shot the intruder was charged by the Police with unlawful possession of firearm. Yes, you heard it right. A gun shop owner, while inside his own shop is charged with possessing a firearm! Maybe, dealing with stupid criminals also makes the Police stupid.
Good citizens, even when attacked are discouraged from harming the attacker. Kiwis can be so kind and compassionate to a fault. But some (only a few) just plain stupid.Read the news story here.
