When the Law-Abiding Are Armed...

...the robbers are shot and forced to flee.

And then they can tell their pitiful stories to a sympathetic press:

"I feel horrible. It doesn't feel good. It makes you think about life's decisions, and how you should live your life," Henderson said in an interview with the Star-Banner at the jail on Saturday afternoon.

Hours after his release from the hospital, Henderson, who talked about the pain he feels in his buttock and hip, said the plan was to "barge in, get the money and leave." He said "he never expected anyone to be armed."

"The gun was broken and rusty and wasn't loaded. Nobody was going to get hurt," he said, standing with crutches.

Retrieving the customers' phones was what he said was their "main priority." That way, he said, the customers could not call law enforcement officials.

It was an inside job, one of the two robbers having worked at the internet café before having been fired, so he knew there would be lots of money available. What he didn't know is that one of the patrons would be armed.

"...he never expected anyone to be armed..." Get used to that feeling. An armed internet cafe is a polite internet cafe.
