But I don't see how you think he planned this, but then say he broke down in the moment realizing his new found pathetic state.. He went in for money
and didn't get it. How's that all his plan. You mentioned a similar case with jewelry, but what does that have to do with a $10 pizza?
I'm not saying HE planned it to go that way dusty, I said "Unless,
It was all part of his plan in the first place. " in response to wrabbit. In my previous responses I only mention other possible motives (intentions)
based on accounts I've investigated and have experienced...perspectives many citizens might not be aware of.
You say he "got away with it." and yea sure he got out of it, but he didn't get away with anything.
It's WAY easier to grab some food off the shelves in a grocery store than demand money and start crying over it.. to get a pizza.
I'm guessing he wanted money for drugs, I can't say for certain I wasn't in his mind at the time obviously, but again I've seen 'newbie' drug addicts
get cold feet and halt their 'first crime' while in progress because they realize they are now resorting to robbery to compensate for their
addiction...some break down, most don't hang around.. they flee (chicken out).
He stayed, then maybe chose to play the sympathy card to deflect the impact of his crime from the victims. Again, I'm only putting motives out there
that many might not consider because they have not ever been directly involved with these individuals and the robbery, burglary, or grand theft they
I agree the guy is dangerous. I wouldn't have let him go, but giving him a pizza could have been a stalling tactic.. I bet cops take a while to get
Pizza as a stalling tactic is certainly a possibility, I've seen others come up with some clever stalling tactics until police arrive...quite
Not sure I understand why you think the cops would 'take a while to get out there'. It's just another robbery in progress call to respond to like any
other robbery in progress call. Dispatch could update the responding officers with the information that the suspect has sat down, is crying and is no
longer a threat.
Officer discretion to downgrade the response level put highly unlikely because the situation can go back to being threatening again.
Better to hurry and get there in case it does.
However I've heard of some agencies in a number of cities with some really pathetic response times sadly.
