Material posessions are not worth dying for!!! I wish someone would tell America this.....
Some times, people are killed any way even after giving them what they wanted.
It's been about 15 years ago or so but our friends owned a convenient store with some storage units behind them.
The family had always talked about IF they got robbed, don't hesitate and give them what ever they asked for.
Of course, like so many people, they figure "it would never happen to me".
Well, it did one fateful morning.
The wife had opened up that morning by herself when a robber came in. She did as he asked and emptied the register and the safe. But that wan't the
He didn't have a gun, only a knife and he stabbed her over 15 times and she bleed to death.
Her husband found her when he came in. Dead.
He told my husband had they had a gun in there, she would have at least had a weapon to defend herself with.
But as it was, she had nothing but her fists.
And the perp got away
A week later, he tried to rob another store but got SHOT this time. Unfortunately the perp lived.
At least the employee was NOT HURT.
Since the death of his wife, the husband and her parents sold the store and moved away.
The point is, no body expects any thing bad to happen to them.
This family thought that giving in to the robbers would save them....... it didn't.
Unfortunately, it's not so always black and white.
There's always that gray area in between.
