:righton:Police also told Channel 2 the clerk was justified in firing shots and will not face charges. from link above
The perp was hit in both arms and "the upper left area" whatever that means. Depending exactly where that bullet hit "the upper left area" and then bounced around inside, presumably, that's the shot that most likely did him in.Perp got three bullet holes and still had the ability to run out the door and across the parking lot.
The clerk did pretty well for point shooting at a quick moving target. The perp fired 5 times and didn't hit the clerk. Probably within 10-15 feet. I'd say the clerk was real lucky and the perp probably never fired that gun before. He probably wasn't expecting the clerk to come at him like he did.Looks like the store clerk had a .38 or .357 revolver. And scored 3 hits one handed, that's good shooting under duress. Or great luck.
This.Cops knew, 100% knew, that the use of force was lawful. The only "crime" committed here was the robbery that the now-deceased robber attempted.
So why this???
" The clerk said police told him he was justified in shooting the robber and would face no charges.
â€œThey've taken my gun for evidence. I'll have to have another gun if I'm going to keep working there," the clerk said.
Evidence, my ass.
The cops want to go on a fishing expedition to see if that clerk's gun is stolen property, or if it can be matched, through ballistics, to some other crimes.
But the cops have ZERO reason to think either of these things are true.
They're just confiscating a law-abiding citizen's property to check it and see if everything about it is legal and proper.
This should be illegal, by both Georgia statutory law and constitutional law.
