Bad Advice Begets Bad Results

Good thing this guy took Tom Menino's advice to heart, choosing not to carry a gun and to cooperate with his assailant. Otherwise, he might have got hurt.

Boston police have released surveillance video of the person wanted for killing a convenience store clerk in Jamaica Plain during a robbery Saturday.


In the video, the clerk appears to cooperate with the robber, loading money into a bag.

But he was shot to death moments later. Police did not show or release that part of the video.

The only thing he didn't do right, according to the Self Defense For Liberals Handbook, was that he failed to call 911 and wait for the police to come save the day trace the chalk outline on the floor.

It was the clerk's first week on the job. But, I'm going to go way on that limb again, and guess that this wasn't this scumbag's first violent offense.
