Teen tries to rob Detroiter, ends up shot by victim

While no one is wanting bad things to happen to other's, here is a story that shows that this stuff can work.

http://www.detnews.com/article/20090...430/1409/METRO

George Hunter / The Detroit News
Detroit -- A 17-year-old would-be armed robber had the tables turned on him this morning when his intended victim pulled out his own gun and shot the teen, police said.

Now, instead of the money he allegedly sought to steal, the teen will get a lengthy hospital stay -- and, if he recovers and is convicted, a lengthy prison sentence.

The incident happened about 5 a.m. this morning behind an apartment building at 1670 Oakman, Detroit Police spokesman John Roach said.

"The 17-year-old came up behind a 32-year-old man behind the apartment building and tried to rob him at gunpoint," Roach said. "But the 32-year-old had a CCW (a license to carry a concealed weapon), and had his own sidearm with him. He pulled his weapon and they exchanged gunfire."

When the shooting was over, the 32-year-old had only suffered a minor injury to the head, while the alleged bandit was seriously wounded. He was taken to an area hospital, where he remains in critical condition, Roach said.

"If he recovers, he'll likely be charged with armed robbery, and probably attempted murder," Roach said.

The kid had it coming.

Maybe I'm a bit pessimistic about matters such as these but I'd bet a dollar the kid's parents attempt to sue the guy for defending himself and shooting their rotten crotchfruit.

Well, you might be right about that, one can always try to sue anyone for anything, but the new Michigan law makes it illegal for the bad guy or his relatives to sue the good guy if the bad guy is being bad.

This is part of the new and improved Castle Law.
