A Criminal Act Disguised as a DGU (Defensive Gun Use)

The Daily Journal reports

A South Jersey pharmacist pulled out a handgun and fired several shots at a would-be robber as he chased him from his store, authorities said. Police said it did not appear any shots hit the fleeing holdup man, who had demanded narcotic painkillers.

“I’m no hero, but I thought, ‘Either him or I,’” said John Agyemang, who opened Jolin’s Pharmacy in Winslow about three months ago.
"No hero," is right. In fact this sounds more like criminal behavior than anything else.

You cannot shoot at a fleeing robber no matter what you thought you saw in their fanny pack.

But, unfortunately, even in New Jersey, gun owners get away with criminal acts like this.

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.

  1. Fortunately, these police officers have more sense than you. The good citizen saw what looked like a gun. The thug was there to rob the place. The good citizen defended himself and his business. When the people on your side stop feeling sorry for criminals, you might get a little respect. Until then, you're just pathetic.
