Th needs a robot after-hours moderator;
if a post is flagged say 10-15 times,the poster is automatically deleted from that day's comments site-wide( whole 24 hr period),and queued for review by a real TH moderator once they're back online. If deemed proper,the poster is dropped from TH,and a complaint sent to their ISP.

Just keep flagging them! The moderator is MIA!

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...
