  1. If this was to happen every time, we’d run out of Robbers real quickly. Removing just 1 Predator, saves many from becoming victims. Congrats Augusta, too bad the Robber had to injure a Juvenile to earn his exit.

  2. They need to make sure this ends up on his headstone. Here’s lies Lamar Harrison. He was lazy and greedy and probably not the smartest of his mother’s children. In the end, he died trying to steal a couple hundred dollars. I mean seriously, you gotta split that with your partner. So you’re each gonna walk away with $100. Man, you could have worked the drive through and made that much the honest way and been able to hold your head up high. I didn’t know you, but I’m glad you’re dead. You obviously didn’t have anything good to offer this world.

    • he was an honor student and sang in the choir on Sunday’s. Saturday’s he dedicated to helping the elderly at the old folks home. He accidentally walked in the subway to ask to use the phone since he had a flat tire(reason for crowbar). He didn’t see the juvenile when he went to change hands carrying the crowbar and accidentally tapped them with the bar.
      Subway will fire the employee due to Gun Free Zone (victim rich environment) and the family will sue.

  3. makes me think of a song by Queen, Another one bites the dust. The one thing thugs bank on, is a good law abiding citizen with a gun will hesitate and not pull the trigger ,this thug ,well “choose poorly “

  4. this POS got what he deserved ,now the lady has to live with the fact she took a life, I would bet this not what she wanted to do ,but at the end of the day she HAD to protect her family, everyone lost on this one, so we turn another page and life goes on. God bless us all ,we’re going to need it.
