Unhappy D*mn. Know Your Weapon.

White Rock-area slain clerk also had gun, police say
Victim's weapon failed

09:13 PM CDT on Friday, November 2, 2007

A White Rock-area convenience store clerk who was slain during an apparent robbery last Saturday night was also armed with a gun, police said Friday.

Police now believe that the slain clerk, Abate Z. Hailu, 43, saw that the two men were armed as they came into the Fina Food Mart on Garland Road shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday.

The clerk pointed the gun at them, said Lt. Craig Miller, a homicide supervisor.

"There was a malfunction with the weapon, and obviously Mr. Hailu was not able to use the weapon" because the safety was still on, Lt. Miller said.

The two robbery suspects then fired their weapons at Mr. Hailu, who died at the scene, police said. Store surveillance cameras recorded the crime and images of the two men. The two suspects also went behind the counter and took a small amount of cash and some property, police said.

One suspect, Howard Lee Simon, 22, was arrested Monday in connection with Mr. Hailu's death. Police are looking for a second suspect, Deshawn Larkin, 26.

Anyone with information about Mr. Larkin's whereabouts may call police at 214-671-3661.

+1!! I read that article this morning. Sucks. He might have gotten the drop on them if he knew how to operate his weapon.

That really sucks. Too bad he didn't know how to turn off the safety, then we could be 2 less scum bags around here.

There are a lot of people who carry, that have never fired their weapon. They worry about caliber (as if they can hit something), but never practice. Hitting someone with a .22 is a hell of a lot more effective than missing them with a .45... KNOW YOUR WEAPON!

It's easy to say what he should have done, but it is another thing to be in that situation and actually do it. He was probably scared to death so it is not at all strange that he forgot to flip off the safety. Of course this is why you are supposed to practice it often enough that you don't have to think about it.

I would say that many with Semi Autos don't chamber a round which is just as bad as leaving the safety on. They are probably so afraid of it just "going off", they think they will have time to rack it and when put into that situation, they panic and forget.

That's why I like Sigs. No safety but a nice positive de-cocking lever once you are ready to put it away.

Cool Natural Selection

Now see this is where Darwin figured the world out! We know this as Natural Selection: the process by which the weak, inefficient and stupid in this case are weeded out of the gene pool.

Now if we only had a justice system to weed the criminal punks out...

Alright people, pay attention:
"To Many " is an address like in a toast or tribute while "Too Many " is an implication of excess.

Cool To

"to" is not an adress but a toast :-)

When I started figuring how I would prepare for a retirement and a hobby at the same time, I took my first investment money and said "here's to many mustangs to come" and bought my first 1967 coupe. Since them I've had 12 and will finish this one by March.

You're not the first person to ask. Don't be too/to/two hard on yourself. :-)

:-) hey I am grateful for every question. It means I can post something and get that stupid "punk ass newbie" tag off my name.

BTW: the two white GTs in the pic are numbers 4 and 11. I kept the 67 Fastback and have it up in Virginia at a wharehouse. It is a tripple vin "S" code GTA.
