Tables Turned on a Piece of Trash
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A would-be robber wound up in a Kansas City-area hospital Saturday after a man shot him during an attempted holdup at an ATM, police said.
Police said the man approached an older couple as they drove up to an ATM at a northland Bank of America location early Satuday morning and threatened them with a gun.
But the man in the car grabbed his own gun, jumped out of the car and shot the would-be robber in the head. He was taken to a hospital and was listed in stable condition.
“It doesn’t happen very often, especially during the day, (so) it is a little unusual,” said Kansas City, Mo., police Capt. Jeff Emery.
After the robbery attempt, the couple got their cash and police said they’re doing fine.
Customers who learned what happened seemed proud that the would-be victims took matters into their own hands.
What is not included here is that the robber was a male about 20 and the victims were a couple in their 60's. Thank God that there are people like this that refuse to be victims and are willing to do what is necessary to send the message to criminals that we will not be robbed or intimidated and that we are far from helpless. Stories like this make me believe that all is not yet loss and there are still many Americans who will stand and fight when that is what is needed. Thank you Missouri for the right to carry a loaded weapon in our vehicle!!!
