in a liberal mind it would be criminal not having something to give a robber...it's only "fair"...you have it, he doesn't, you share...you didn't earn that by your self ! This all blends into the criminal's mind and thinking !! It's only fair...to share.

It happens probably nightly. A citizen fights off a criminal in order to protect his property. But it doesn't always make the nightly news. In this case it did.   

But...

How much easier and safer would have been this takedown of a punk in New York City if the clerk had been equipped with a hand gun rather than just a vodka bottle?  How much less of a burden to the taxpayer too, who will now have to incarcerate the criminal?

And just think of chilling effect it would have on criminals if shootings of miscreants during crimes like this were on the nightly...
