    Purse snatching is robbery. In any state, if you use physical force to commit a theft, then it is aggravated robbery.

    Even saying it in the nicest way possible, when boiled down, reverts back to that. If not applicable, it is wrong, like the Stormfronters who believe that all non-white people are subhuman. That's obviously not the case, as with anything, there are distinctions. There are good and bad people, man. Michael Brown wasn't a good person, so why are you defending him?

    and in almost ever, if not all states, that justifies the victim to deploy deadly force.

    You are wrong. Purse snatching is not necessarily robbery in my state--it is larceny from a person which is a different charge under a different statute--and assault during a theft is a separate charge and does not rise to robbery unless the assault was necessary to gain control of the item taken.

If one does not want to face that hazard, get a different job and don't rob.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    A thief attacked a cop and got shot. There is nothing remarkable about the event.
