I completely agree that chasing him out of the store and shooting him is wrong. I don't know if he was scared, or what. Either way I feel bad for everyone involved.

My gramp was a police officer, and he told me to many clerks were murdered over beer, snacks, $20. People often hurt the clerks. I'm not saying this particular clerk felt threatened, but I'm sure he knew that often clerks are assaulted. I will say again I completely agree that chasing him out of the store was WRONG.

Sad thread replies. I am disheartened by all the bad jokes and lack of empathy. Murder is not appropriate use of force in retaliation to petty theft. This needless loss of life should never have happened.

The store is insured against theft, no grab-n-go justifies execution. This guy was shot in cold blood for nothing. If it was a holdup and the clerk thought his life was in danger, that is another story, but this clearly was not the case.

This is exactly why people... sorry... idiots SHOULDN'T carry guns, because they don't know when it's appropriate to use them. I hope he gets murder 1, to teach people that it's NOT ok to shoot someone over a 12 pack. Thieves in TX are already aware of the risks...

I have a buddy that works down the street from there. I was hoping it wasn't him involved in the shooting. It wasn't.

Stores are NOT insured against theft. I owned an electronics store, and every time something got lifted, the insurance man would kind of wince, and shrug his shoulders.

What ? You can definately get insured against theft. A run of the mill vanilla policy might have exclusions regarding theft, but to say that stores are not insured is a gross generalization. Getting insured against theft is very often a prerequisite for a commercial loan, at least up here, unless you have a massive amount of $ to offer as collateral. Now, unless you have cameras lying around filming the theft, or direct proof, actually getting paid canbe a hassle with shoplifting and the like. It might also not be the best idea to report every theft due to the potential (potential, who am I kidding?) premium hike.

Insured or not, shooting a thief in the parking lot over a case of beer... How to ruin multiple lives, including his own, over material possessions.

Put the damn clerks behind bulletproof glass already.

I think it's about respect. If someone tried to steal it or impose his will on me by agression, I would use whatever force I felt necessary to stop it. I would had have no moral qualms about killing him. And no, I don't believe his life is worth a 12 pack. However, I would not have chased after him, and if I owned a store, I would hire an armed guard to be in stationed in a conspicuous location.

you have no "moral qualms" about killing a guy over a 12 pack of Budweiser?

are you f-ing serious? its not like he held the clerk up at gunpoint and took it, he was running away and was gunned down.

if you'd kill over bud, would you rape someone over a barleywine?
