What idiot would get shot by someone, be afraid of them, and STILL tell the cops not to press charges?
The only circumstances where that happens is in instances of spousal abuse and child abuse. It pretty much NEVER happens with regard to strangers.

So again, can you deny charges even when some crazy bodily harm happens to you? I feel like this may have happened with Tupac a few times, but I don't know if it's legal, or the norm..

I mean that in a very positive way...
My wife is from Bozeman. It's a slower way of living and certainly what I found to be nicer and generally more open and decent people than in many other areas of the nation. Not just Montana. There are a few states in the Northern Rockies/Northern Plains I really enjoyed driving across for that reason as much as the trip without many headaches. I lived with her in Bozeman for a 6 month period though so got to know Montana a little better than the others I simply crossed in trucking.
If it wasn't for the brutal winters and what I saw from out of state folks moving en masse to some areas, I wouldn't mind retiring up there. Of course, that'd make me one of those latter people too I suppose. lol... As for the weather though. I made a stupid bet with her while living there that it wouldn't SNOW of all things, on the 4th of July. I was young..hadn't been around much back then. What did I know? Snow? July? Ha! Well... Yeah, she laughed alright as she took my money and I watched it snow. Only a little, but that's enough.

Resurrecting an old thread for an update:
Not only did the robber not have any children, but he only made up the story upon seeing the cash register had a few dollars in it. My disgust for humanity has been restored!
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A Montana man whose tearful reluctance to rob a pizza restaurant earned him free food apparently made up the sob story that gained him the clerk's sympathy.
