Thread: KFC almost robbed

  1. KFC almost robbed

    SAN DIEGO A would-be robber wielding a chain at a San Diego Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant didn't count on one of the customers being an armed, off-duty, plainclothes police sergeant. Witnesses said the man barged in Saturday afternoon, smashed his heavy chain on the counter and ordered all the employees into the kitchen.

    But before he could open the cash register, the sergeant pointed his gun at the man and ordered him to the ground.

    Witnesses said the suspect demanded to see the officer's badge, and the sergeant complied.
    The suspect was arrested for attempted armed robbery.




    Funny stuff. So what if the cop refused to show his badge? Would the robber blow him off and continue to rob the store with a gun pointed at him? Me thinks when a loaded gun is pointed at you, whether or not he has a badge is the least of your worries !

    I'd have told the chainsaw wielding robber to kiss my A$$. Show me your badge??? Put down the weapon and get on the floor, hands behind your head. NOW!

    But what if he ignored you and turned his back to you? Would your state laws justify discharging your weapon?

    He did not say a Chain Saw but a heavy chain. If he turned his back and opened the register that would have opened a problem. Deadly force would not have been OK'd IMO. If he "aggressed" the Sgt. then he could have been stopped as it would have been considered a deadly weapon

    I don't see anybody really in much danger with this, except maybe innocent bystanders in the line of fire from an overzealous shooter. I suppose it would be a good opportunity for some dumb-arsed CCW holder to get him or herself in trouble. An equal or better man would just use the perp's weapon to engage a strangle hold until the authorities arrived.

    If I am threatening you with a heavy chain in my hand, you damn well better shoot me, cause there aint' no way you're gonna use it to put me in a strangle-hold. Somebody is suffering from delusions of grandeur, alright.

    As a customer in the dining area, I can't see where "I" (or "you" for that matter) was being threatened. Considering this is in the firearms discussion on a site called USACarry, I assumed the operative notion here might be the possibility of a CCW holder using said weapon(s) in this scenario. Sorry, my bad. And too bad you feel compelled to contribute nothing more than another personal attack against me:

    Par for the course I suppose.

    Having used a heavy chain myself, I can say unequivocally state that: "LIVES were indeed in jepordy!"

    IMO; an "unarmed" defense against a chain wielding perpetrator would be foolhearty; unless you have been "formally" trained in hth against someone with a weapon.

    However, I can see the BG just turning and leaving IF this had been a CWP holder and not an LEO. (If the BG decided to escalate against the CWP holder, then that's on him.)

    Of course, that assumes that the perp is trained in the use of a chain as a deadly weapon. Most likely, I see the guy swinging the chain and hitting himself with it.
