There's certainly a conflict there. I mean unless the clerk has a lot of options besides just a gun, how is he supposed to prevent smash and grab type of thefts (especially if he's watching the store by himself). Would this have been a good situation for less-leathal ammo? Or maybe he should have chucked a molotov cocktail onto the car as it sped away.

Maybe, but it's probably evidence now...

It is a stunning example of the virtue of Personal Responsibility.

The thief dies from a minor convenience store theft of less than $15, but had he not sought to steal in the first place....

The store clerk, who was not under any responsibility to shoot at $15 thieves that do not threaten his own life, now goes to jail.

Moral of the story is: look out because weird sh!t happens all the time.

If you haven't heard that 911 call, it is worth a listen.

I hope this clerk gets off with a slap on the wrist. Everyone should know that you are allowed to shoot someone when they are on your property, or you are threatened with immediate and mortal danger. Other than that, you run the risk of serving time for at least manslaughter. If he had plugged the guy inside the store, or if the thief had a weapon the clerk would have a case. But shooting at someone outside as they are running away? Get their license plate number and call the cops would be my first move.

Well, I'm not trying to make light of this kids death but I'm sure many convenience store owners are scared when a theft/robbery happens. To many times a year these clerks are murdered by people who snatch and grab no more than $20 from the register.

I know he chased him out of the store and shot him which was wrong, but I'm sure the guy was scared. I feel sorry for everyone involved.

I think a grab-and-go robbery is a lot different from a hold up. What I gathered from this story is that the guy grabbed a 12 pack and ran. That is no reason to run out of a store firing a gun. Not only can you harm the robber but more important any innocent person that happens to be in the area. Indeed it is a sad story.

To partially quote a great move... that clerk took away everything that man ever had and ever will have, all on account of pulling a trigger.

Stolen beer isn't worth a life.
