This is how you go to prison.

The story is that an individual set up a meeting via Craiglist (I know) to buy sneakers from another. The buyer turned out to be an armed robber.

I am bringing this up because I have seen the video in a couple of “News websites” with titles like “He Ripped Armed Robber’s Arm Off With His SUV. Now He’s Facing Attempted Murder” as if it was some great injustice being made against the driver.

The driver effed up. Plain and Simple.

The robber was done and gone, the particular event for which Self defense could have been used was over. The driver turned around, aimed and used the van as a weapon, his life was not in immediate danger not anybody else’s. He cannot claim self-defense. Maybe he could try temporary insanity but the chances are about 95% against getting an acquittal.

He is going to prison.

Don’t let your Ego and your Emotions dictate your tactics and behavior.

  1. Some people are just too stupid for their own good. He would have been ahead if he had used a gun to shoot the turd in self defense.

  2. Quit while you’re ahead.

  3. All he did was disarm him.


  4. The robber is going to have to switch to velcros when he gets out of jail. Can’t lace up a pair of high top kicks with just one hand.

  5. The driver should be at least indicted for murder in the heat of passion. It wasn’t premeditated, but he had time to think about it.

  6. His best hope is for jury nullification.

    I do not agree with what he did, but I do understand how he did it.
