Bodega owner slashes gun-toting thug who tried to rob him

 

A Queens bodega owner served up some instant justice when he slashed a gun-toting thug who tried to rob him Wednesday, cops said.

 

The 28-year-old bandit squeezed off two rounds but was still no match for the deli man, who dodged the bullets and chopped off the robber's ear and finger with a machete, police said.

 

The incident unfolded at Erick Grocery on 77th St. in Woodhaven about 5 p.m., police said.

Although I admire the courage of these shop keepers I'm also fearful that one day someone is going to get seriously hurt or worse, killed. They should really consider different ways of handling a situation like that.

Instead of pulling out knives, axes and swords, they should be pulling out guns and shooting the robbers dead on the spot. Maybe that will deter these lowlives from targeting these family owned stores.

Damn, that stickup guy looked like he was in bad shape. That'll show him. He should stick to the federally backed banks where they are trained to just give up the money. I'm sure the tellers there have no tricks up their sleeves.

I think the shop owners should be able to carry guns. If they did, the robber may think twice and if they dont there will be less of them... as long as the shop keeper has good aim.
