No Charges After Worker Allegedly Shoots Would-Be Burglar At Jamaica Store
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Queens District Attorney has decided not to prosecute a grocery store worker in the shooting death of a would-be burglar in Queens.This is in New-freakin'-York, folks, and the worker won't be charged. That's pretty freakin' amazing right there. It's a pretty safe bet that the recently deceased was a far cry from a choirboy, and the store worker most likely saved his own life with his actions. Someone breaking in at 2AM is most likely expecting the place to be empty; upon finding it occupied, they're more likely to leave if they're not ready to invoke violence upon those inside.
The 54-year-old worker was stocking shelves alone inside the Met Supermarket on Jamaica Avenue when two men cut a hole in the roof above the cash registers and lowered themselves inside the store around 2:15 a.m. Tuesday, reports 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria.
One can only speculate that the goblin's last words were "You don't have the guts to shoot"...
Dead Goblin Count: 264
That is all.
