Deadly Force Smash & Grab Robbery's
In the Houston Tx area there have been a series of "smash & grab" robbery's, mostly in jewelry stores. The crooks come in with hammers, smash the jewelry cases, grab the merchandise, and are gone within a couple of minutes. Videos show these guys seem to totally disregard clerks and/or customers, and do not appear to be brandishing weapons (except the hammers).
I would like to get your thoughts on these:
1. What would you do if you are the store owner/employee and you were armed??
2. What would you do if you were a customer and you were armed?
Personally, I would love to see the crooks dead on the floor, but I am not sure it would be justified (since the hammers were only being used to break the glass).
