Eff that shit dude. You come to my job, and pull a knife on me, I am calling the police. And you will be lucky if I don't drop kick your ass while I'm at it.
IDGAF if this man was desperate. IDGAF if he was poor and had no money. There is always, always some way to feed your family.
Food stamps, churches, food banks. He knew they had no food. He knew it all day long and perhaps even longer. But his first thought was to ROB someone? Those crocodile tears would not have worked on me.
There is no church here that will refuse you a meal. I am sure there are churches in the area that would have fed him. Emergency food stamps or pantries. Hell he could have gone to the police or fire station and I'm sure they would have gotten him some help. You do not ever need to rob someone just to get money to buy food.
Even a neighbor, family, etc could have helped. I promise even if it was my last dollar if someone told me they were hungry and needed food I'd buy them something to eat, so long as my family was taken care of first.
When a crime is committed, it's
not always a matter of black and white: Just because someone commits a
crime does not mean that person is automatically bad. Take what happened
at a Papa John's in the Helena, Montana, area. A man, armed with a
knife, allegedly walked
into the pizzeria early Tuesday morning as the staff was closing for
the night and passed the clerk a note demanding money from the register.
When the clerk began taking money
out of the register to give to the alleged robber, the robber began to
cry. As he cried, he explained to the clerk that he needed money for his
wife and children, who were hungry. The warm-hearted clerk spoke to the
man and decided to make him a pizza and some chicken wings. The man
waited patiently at a table while the clerk prepared the meal, and when
it was done, he took the food and left.
Helena Police Chief Troy McGee
hailed the clerk for handling the delicate and dangerous situation so
well. "I'd say the clerk was pretty astute; I mean, he knows how to talk
to this person. Kind of commiserated with him a little. Talked to him
about it and you know actually changed his mind about robbing the place.
That was pretty good."
