"For me, it would have very little to do with the property, or money, or whatever was being taken"

Same here. These people who complain "a few dollars in a cash register isn't worth a human life" are completely missing the point. The Death Row case files are FULL of cases where somebody robbed a convenience store, then shot the clerk before leaving. I think it's pretty much a given that if somebody points a gun and threatens somebody with it, they've passed the point of no return.

The two adult male suspects were in the process of emptying the store's cash register when the clerk fatally shot one of them, said Toledo police Sgt. Joe Heffernan. The victim, who was struck multiple times, collapsed right in front of the counter.

The clerk, whose name police withheld, was working by himself at the time.

The robbery attempt was caught on a store video camera. Forensic experts are reviewing the tapes.

I can only assume that the adult males got to the process of emptying the store's cash register because they were armed.

The clerk probably feared for his life, i.e. the robbers would rob him but shoot him anyway.

Also, tapes are still in review, so I don't see how people can defend the robbers. It's not about defending the cash in the register, it's about making sure one gets out alive in an uncertain situation.

LOL @ close minded people calling others close minded.

Just shut up and wait for further news.

Footage looks choppy/poorly edited.

But it looks like the robbers were prepared for a gun fight, which might explain why one of them "escorted" the unsuspecting female into the backroom. Unless of course, he had something else in mind. It looks like he drew his gun after he heard shots fired.

If only they had footage of the robber who got shot...then the trial would end quickly and not waste tax dollars.

That being said, I don't think I want to wear hoodies anymore...especially when I go to convenience stores.
