Trying to rob a CC class only packing a screwdriver. This was just posted a few days ago, not sure if there will be any legal ramifications against all of the shooters, but the screwdriver wielding robber will only be seeing the inside of a coffin. He won’t go down as the sharpest tool in the shed:
I had seen this video before. That is a dumb decision by Mr. Payton. Walking into the middle of a class where everyone is armed and trying to steal a gun. Once he assaulted the police officers in the parking lot all bets were off. He took a trip to dirt nap city.
Probably saw this one, but will look again. There’s a few out there, one favorite was the guy brushing past 3 either detectives or off duty cops to do an armed robbery in a convenience store…
The “active self protection” channel on YouTube has some vids along this line.
Some years back, I recall the story of a man who tried to rob a McDonalds in South Dakota. Same results.
That’s crazy. Walked into the class room and tries to take a gun, stands around in the parking lot talking to the staff until the police show up THEN attacks two cops with a screwdriver. Looks to me like a justified shooting.
I remember this one. The police officer never should have gotten this close to perp without seeing what was in his hands and then they all shot him when he was running away. Seems to be a example of what not to do. I hope other police officers learn from this. I guess the adrenaline was going and nobody could think. I often wonder what happened to the ones shooting at him if they were charged or not.
Mr. Peyton succumbed to his injuries long before that fateful day!
It must have been a planned suicide! Can people be that stupid? Who stabs a law enforcement officer?
That’s like me walk-in into a bar with all you guys, and screaming, “Vote for Hillary!”
I am sorry and I respect your comment. I am not seeing this from Mr. Payton’s point of view. A police officer was stabbed and four people shot at someone in the back and they have to live with that. My concern is that the police officer should have asked to see Mr. Payton’s hands before approaching him and that is the lesson learned. I think it is called the 17 foot rule or 21 foot.
There is no 17 or 21 foot rule. However, too many people have misunderstood the Tueller Drill and mistakenly talked of a “21 foot rule.” For an excellent explanation of the history and interpretation of Dennis Tueller’s research, watch Massad Ayoob present the history and then have his students actually carry out a Tueller Drill. It is well worth the 15 minutes to watch the entire video.
I wouldn’t harm you for that comment. I would avoid you, but that is as far as it would go with me.
And just when I thought there were no new flavors of dumb!
I wonder why the guy sitting to the left of Mr Peyton just sat there and watched him getting into the bag that he must have known wasn’t his.
Thanks,Scott. Choked so hard my throat hurts .
He screwed up!
Larry the Cable Guy has a joke about Hillary that might explain your throat issue…
He understood he was going to get an award that day, he just did not know the category…
Whenever something is made idiot proof…they only come up with a better grade of idiot.
He may not be the sharpest tool, but neither are the cc guys. The officer’s partner was well in control and the three other guys seemed to have no reason to draw and shoot. I thought the concept of cc was for protection, not vigilantism.
They shot, as did the other officer, to protect the other officer. Since they did call the police, they were not administering “justice” nor likely held any belief that they were law enforcers, nor avenging a perceived harm or injustice.
The definition of vigilante does not seem to fit this scenario. From Cornell Law School:
Someone who personally claims to enforce law and order, but lacks legal authority to do so. Vigilantes operate by using actual or threatened force, and are distinguished from people who simply watch out for criminal behavior and report it to the police. Vigilantes are often motivated by a desire to avenge a perceived harm or injustice.
