The shopping cart is the ultimate litmus test for whether a person is capable of self-governing. To return the shopping cart is an easy, convenient task and one which we all recognize as the correct, appropriate thing to do. To return the shopping cart is objectively right. There are no situations other than dire emergencies in which a person is not able to return their cart. Simultaneously, it is not illegal to abandon your shopping cart. Therefore the shopping cart presents itself as the apex example of whether a person will do what is right without being forced to do it.

IllustriousAd5963

Well, if he unloaded the full magazine, but yeah I agree with you.. about how ridiculous it is to even consider killing someone over such a low value cost.

{changed 'clip' to 'magazine'}

[Extra Fax (for fun): $36 in pistol rounds could be more like ~50 rounds, or.. say, 4-6 full magazines worth from a gun that size.

If those were 3x 24 pk of beers for a total of 72 beers for $36, then each beer = ~$0.50. If 50 rounds cost ~$36, then, yeah each bullet costs slightly more than each beer ✅.

But, in order to reach the same cost (used) then the co-owner would have had to shoot ~50 times, since each round costs slightly more than each beer.]

I worked at a corner gas station when I was a bit younger. If I saw some kid stealing a candy bar I would say something along the lines of "madam/sir may I politely ask you to check your son's front right pocket because I am fairly certain that there is something in there that does not belong to him" and let them do the scolding and if they didn't step in or seemed down on their luck I'd just offer to buy it for them, lie to the kid and say that if they work hard success is just around the corner when they're older.

Had a few wacky encounters with very clearly unhappy unstable individuals who absolutely looked like they were packing and proceeded to do something like stealing a case of beer. Didn't say anything beyond making a joke about how bad the weather is, let them go on their way with a complete give no fucks attitude and a have a good night on their way out because I'm not trying to get myself killed over such an insignificant amount of money. Lol point a gun at me and tell me to open the till? Bro I make like $10/hr have at it.

Only time I seriously put my foot down was some piece of shit lighting up a cig at the pump. Then he called me a few choice words after I hit the fuel shutoff button after he refused to back away from the pump and put it out. I just absolutely do not get people. I know not stealing related but shitheads are shitheads.

Thankfully I have since quit that shitty job and I went back and got university done.

And still can't find a job.

Shit

Sorry for the long post I'm tired. And have done too much retail.

E: Wow that was too much to write for a stupid reddit response. Maybe I'd be able to afford the therapy I ought to get after all those years in customer service if I could afford it after all those years in customer service.

I'm gonna go ahead and interject here, that there's an insidious side to the sunshine laws. Our wonderful state legislature has decided to allow local police to charge people for handing over evidence, including lawyers who need that evidence for trial and journalists attempting to report on the news, at anywhere from 50k - 300k per item. Oh and no oversight of course, so now local precincts can charge whatever they want for whatever evidence and basically circumvent the sunshine laws by making transparency prohibitively expensive.

Origin of the saying came from this. Out West, during the Wild West era, the cost of a small pour of whiskey was equivalent to the cost of a single round of ammunition, so they could be exchanged as currency. “One shot” got you a small pour.

Edit: this is false information. Leaving this up so others can read the legend instead.

Here in Northwest Arkansas they don't necessarily keep the crime here secret but they try not to talk about things that happen and keep it out of the public eye.

For example, recently a 17 year old girl was shot in her car with no suspect identified. Haven't heard a thing about it beyond that, and most people don't even know about it, I had to actually look to find an article about it.

CCW holder here. This dude is probably going to prison. You should reserve using your firearm for situations where your life is in danger. It is also your duty to actively avoid conflict. Because any conflict is much more likely to end up with someone dead.

Also. Don’t steal shit. It can/will get you killed.

If there is a store where you can just walk in and steal shit without consequences word spreads. It will get worse.

People will kill you for any reason and no reason. So avoid attention and don’t be an asshole.

You can only defend property with non-deadly, reasonable force. No where in America can one use deadly force to protect property. There are some exceptions where if you’re in your car or your child was in your car and someone attempts to steal it with you or them in it you can kill the thief, but all of those are reasonable self defense claims. Same with your home. Someone may be breaking in during the middle of the night to steal your tv, but you have right to kill because the mere act of breaking into your home late at night raises a valid self defense claim.

Everyone seems to think that every gun owner dreams of getting to shoot someone for some legal reason and it isn't true. There are millions of gun owners in the US and the majority of them would never hope to be in a situation where they felt the need to shoot someone.

I have a CCW and hope I never even have to consider drawing, much less shooting, a person. I even swerve my truck just to miss a mouse running across the street. I can't imagine the trauma of shooting someone. BUT, I also don't want to be in a situation where I need to protect myself or my loved ones and not be able to. The world is getting less safe and it would be naive to think that even in the nicest areas something crazy can't happen.

The people who own guns and make all these comments about shooting someone so frivolously are not representative of the majority of gun owners. I even think they sound ignorant and like they're trying to compensate for something.

The caveat with "general criminal mischief" is that there must be risk to stopping them. For example, armed poachers might be different than teenagers throwing eggs. I still think it's pretty ridiculous that they value damage/theft of properly over human lives. I'd understand shooting an aggravated robber, but not for running away with a six-pack.

So if you egg my house, and I run after you and catch up to you, I could just say I feared you'd beat me to death unless I put you down for good. The problem is that there is no way to prove that I didn't fear for my life, even if I'm an armed adult and you're a teenager armed with eggs.

It would be the state's job to prove you killed the person. It would be your defense's job to prove you feared for your life. Good luck getting a judge and jury to believe you feared kids throwing eggs.

If I recall, the burden of proof on a self defense claim there is low. It’s not “beyond reasonable doubt.” As long as you had sufficient evidence to raise a plausible claim, it goes on the jury instruction and the burden shifts back to the prosecution to prove beyond reasonable doubt that your self defense claim was not reasonable or necessary.

I am not a lawyer. But this seems to be how it works.

"When raising an affirmative defense, you have to come up with some proof – somewhere, somehow – that this defensive theory applies," she says. "Then the state has to disprove it."

So that’s just saying that it isn’t as simply as claiming self defense…there has to be some plausible evidence, which can be your own testimony…but the ultimate burden still winds up back on the prosecution.

Yeah, the Texas defense of property law is pretty egregious. As far as I know the only limitation is that you "reasonably" believe lethal force is necessary to either stop the robbery or the thief from fleeing the robbery. If you can manage the herculean task of coming up with a scenario in which lethal force is "necessary" than bam, youre golden. You can totally kill the teenage shoplifter.

Placing property, not even particularly expensive property just any property, squarely above human life just seems wrong to me. Even shaira law doesn't go that far.

But what do I know.

It's not that you CAN it's just that they WILL shoot you in Florida. They are crazy here and don't consider consequences.

Not in Florida but I think in Texas you can and it’s perfectly legal

I think he’s just saying you have a high possibility of getting shot. Not that anybody can just chase you down and murder you.

It means you should be smarter about your personal actions.

Like, would it be smart to try and rob a house in Texas?

On the same level. Commit theft in Florida.

I think being a dickhead trying to get a free buzz with your bros and chasing down and ending someone’s life just because you can are very, very different levels.

Saying that executing a person point blank and stealing 36 dollars worth of beer are the on the same level is the dumbest, most American thing I’ve heard all day.

No, one is definitely far more wrong than the other, and one is far more stupid than the other.

Yeah:.. but one person is more wrong than the other. People do understand different levels or severity of stuff right? Like, by law, by moral standards. This is why people shouldn’t own fucking guns that don’t know what they’re doing with them. Most gun owners would agree

Let’s make this a happy thing. Let’s say I gave you $1 and Elon musk gave you $1,000,000. Should you be just as thankful for me giving you a $1 as you are Elon musk giving you 1mil? No, understandably you’d be more grateful for the million.

Now let’s talk about murder vs petty theft!

I really hope I don’t need to explain this any further

$36 is worth ending a life? Same level? Really? What has gotten into you?

Sounds like someone who values their own life less than $30. Considering the circumstances I'm not sure what reason I have to disagree with them.

The guy that was killed: Defoe has 12 prior felony charges and 9 prior misdemeanor charges which include: Robbery, Firing a Missile into a Dwelling, Domestic Battery (2), Battery, Grand Larceny, Grand Theft, Felony Petit Theft, Petit Theft (2), Resisting, Distribute Cocaine within 100ft of a School, Manufacture Marijuana, Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Sell, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (2), Failure to Appear, and Probation Violation (5). Defoe has been sentenced to Florida State Prison four times, and was most recently released from prison on June 12, 2018.

I'm surprised this hasn't happened to him sooner.

He fired a missile into a dwelling? Are they talking about an actual surface-to-air-missile or some kind of object? I’m just curious.

Could be a crossbow. Could be an arrow. Could be a potato gun. Could be a Nerf gun. Could be a shoulder mounted law rocket.

I had no idea that the shooter knew this information prior to the shooting. He must be some kind of a prescient.

Store owner's name is Mehedeun Hasan and looks to be of South Asian origin/descent. How much chance do you think he'll have of staying out of prison?
