Daylight robbery FAIL!

I'm obliged to Don Z. for e-mailing the link to the video clip below. It uses footage from four separate security cameras.

It seems that two thugs decided to break into a shopping center and rob a jewelry kiosk. They arrived on two motor-bikes, driven by accomplices, and tried it on - only to be driven off by the kiosk owners/staff and others from neighboring shops. What Don refers to as a 'combat fire extinguisher' came in rather useful, too!

Well done to all involved. Resistance is the only way to treat muggers like these. If they'd been armed with more dangerous weapons, stronger resistance would have been warranted, too. After all, as the late, great Colonel Jeff Cooper once said: "One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that ‘violence begets violence’. I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure — and in some cases I have — that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy."

The violence begets violence expression is a truthful one, but should only be used for larger scale violence(for a prime example, see Israel<>Palestine).

It's also a bit abbreviated. Violence begets hate, hate begets violence.

Regardless of who starts, the cycle of violence and revenge feeds on itself.
