Neighbors say it was hard to believe the men would try to rob Pooh’s Corner.  The bar is well-known in the area as a hangout for police officers.

“It’s a place you want to go drinking,” Rick Reed said, “because when all the cops are sitting there with guns, you feel pretty safe, or I do anyway.”

via 8 shot during attempted robbery at south city bar |

Eight people shot, two dead and a sacred cow torn to shreds.

Conventional wisdom kept telling us “Who could be so idiot as to rob a cop bar?”  We have at least three! Remember the one good principle of Idiot-Proofing something: Somebody will come along and prove you wrong and in a spectacular way.

The perps were stupid, but that did not make them less dangerous.  They walked in the bar, announced it was a robbery and proceeded to shoot a 63-year-old woman in the head.

Shootings are chaotic and messy: one patron responded taking one of the criminals out, but was shot in the leg and two other customers were also slightly wounded.

Nothing like the movies.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

One thought on “A story full of lessons.”
  1. A bar frequented by police in ST.LOUIS, MO. An armed robbery just after the Ferguson GJ decision and riots. The robbers shot a woman in the head for no apparent reason? And what would they have done to everyone else if one of the patrons did not draw down?
