An Arizona Gas Station Clerk Broke The Rules...

...and it proved to be a crime stopper of a rules 'violation'. Instead of allowing an alleged armed 17 year old dirtbag to rob him at gunpoint, the clerk reportedly pulled his own pistol and shot the would be robber. While trying to make a getaway, the failed robber realized his arm was not functioning (maybe because he had been shot in the arm) and ran to a restaurant for help. Police were called and responded and brought him to a hospital where they say he admitted to the failed robbery attempt and also to another, but successful one, a couple of days earlier. As reported here he also 
allegedly told police the reason he hit gas stations: "they are supposed to just hand over the money and not try to stop anyone." (Source.) I guess the clerk never heard that one before and even if he had, he decided to break the rules and fought back! Way to go brother in arms.

Yes folks, armed citizens can indeed help curtail crime but if you read my blog it is highly likely you knew that already.

All the best,
