    This poll is ridiculous. And since it was posted by a good person living in Turkey, it should convince people of the disservice American media does to the reputation and good name of America in the world. That someone outside America thinks an 18 yr old black youth in America was killed because he stole some cigars is just sad.

    As Turtle said, your example is theft, not robbery. Robbery involves force or threat of force, endangering a human at least potentially.

    Yes, my statement was rather extreme; on purpose, because the disingenuous deceptiveness of the OP made me angry.


    Ideally I'd prefer no one committed robbery. Secundus, I'd prefer robbers never harmed their victims.


    Unfortunately both those wishes are akin to wishing for unicorns and pegasi.



    Failing that, I'd 'druther law-abiding citizens shot down lots of robbers in the act. It would tend to discourage this behavior far more effectively than anything our criminal justice system could do.

    Robbery isn't a game or a prank or a cheap thrill; it is theft using force or threat of force, and innocent people get hurt or killed DAILY in robberies, whether the robbers INTENDED to hurt or kill or not.

    Therefore I have little sympathy for them.



    This is before even addressing the OP's disingenuousness in pretending it was the cigar store robbery that cost Brown his life. It was being enough of a dumbass to fight an armed cop and scare him into thinking he was going to get hurt or killed.

    I suspect you're running into a language barrier. Do you understand the concept of self defense?

    I guess that was the most innocent looking picture they could find.
    They used this one originally...

    And it's sad and pathetic that half the country doesn't actually believe it.

    Do you think that conclusion was reached after Brown punched the Cop in the face, or before?

    No dear, given half a chance though I would shoot them first.


    They shouldn't threaten me to attempt to take what I have lawfully earned. If they threaten harm to my person (which is the definition of robbery, force or threat of force), they deserve what they get.


    I am not a rich man. I cannot afford to lose what little I have, lest my ability to provide for my family might be damaged or destroyed.



    In any case, the OP is deceptive; Brown was shot because he attacked a police officer half his size and scared him into thinking he was going to get killed with his own gun.
