Apparently a customer at a Denny's didn't want to see what happened after the armed robbers got the cash out of the til. Maybe they didn't want to leave any witnesses, who knows?
I don't know if I approve that 'chasing after them into the parking lot, firing as he went' thing. That shouldn't be the instinct, and I think it is asking for trouble, but I wasn't there. And neither was the reporter, so who knows what really happened. Plus there is all the adrenalin going on when you exchange shots and the whole, "How DARE they try to rob my neighborhood restaurant. How DARE they shoot back at me trying to enjoy my Grand Slam brefass at 6AM." So I can understand the impulse, if the details are accurate, but can sit in my chair here, calm, and think of maybe a more perfect way to handle it all.
I do know that if CCW comes to Maryland, I shouldn't trust the authorities to treat the customer in this situation as well as the authorities in Texas probably will for this kind of situation, so that colors my judgement.
Right choice or not, the bad guys in this scenario did a poor job of victim selection and had a good scare to maybe make them reflect on their career choice.
