  • Non-story. Shooting a non-armed shoplifter for stealing a single bottle of alcohol is exercising responsible gun ownership, nothing more.

    Who said he was unarmed? This article doesn't.
  • Fine the shop owner a huge amount of money, and give that money to the state. Everybody wins!

    Well, everybody minus the shoplifter and store owner, but close enough.

    We know for a fact he was armed with a bottle.
  • " pursued Dewberry out of the store with a loaded .357 revolver. Dewberry was hit while in the backseat of a getaway car."

    The shop owner went to far. I'd be okay if he shot him in the store, but chasing him down isn't very smart.

    how about "non-threatening"... I mean, the guy was getting in the backseat of a car and, I'm assuming, at least several feet away from the shop owner. Dude's actions were a tad overblown.
  • I have no love for shoplifters and the gun people are going to call me every variation of the word liberal there is but he didn't deserve to get shot in the jaw over a bottle of hooch. I don't think he needs to sue though either.
  • Shop owner should have, at MOST, shot the tires out.
     
    Or how about just get a license plate and call the cops?  Criminals like this are generally pretty dumb.  Cops probably would have tracked him down in no time.
  • Steal the hooch, you've screwed the pooch.

  • People like this steal because they know the worse they'll get out of it is a few hours in jail and maybe some probation...we need to use to use proper deterrents....

    Or even simply brandish the gun and say, "Hey, asshole, put the bottle on the ground and get the fark out of here."?
  • If you're gonna shoot, shoot to kill. A corpse isn't going to get up and sue your ass.

    And he might have had Skittles.
  • Shoplifters of the world, unite and take over.
  • let's give some credit. hit the guy in the face while he was in a getaway car and didn't kill him.

    Would be pretty hard to claim that shooting someone in the face wasn't with the intention to kill.

  • People are going to say that "a bottle of booze isn't worth killing someone over". And it probably isn't looked at that way. However, the shoplifter should know that, in this country, shop clerks can be armed. Hell, a liquor store owner is MOST LIKELY armed. So, when he went in and stole from owner, the shoplifter knew there was a risk of being shot, and took the chance anyway. He decided that the bottle of vodka was worth risking his life over.
  • after the emotionally traumatic incident, this shoplifter probably will feel too afraid or anxious to continue his career as a criminal. He shouldn't just receive compensation for his pain and suffering, his lost income from all the robberies he won't commit should also be added to the lawsuit.
  • All this for a bottle of vodka.

    Solution: Don't steal.

    Yes.
    Like that chick that stole from a Walmart and got shot in the neck; although in this case, the thief wasn't trying to run the owner over, but still... the guy wouldn't have got shot if he didn't try to steal. Think it through a little better next time.
  • I'm of mixed feelings.

    I can reasonably see criminal charges into the shop owner; maybe reckless use of a deadly weapon or something along those lines.

    But the fact remains, Mr. Shoplifter, is that you were a criminal committing a criminal act. No money or profit for you.
  • Its not self defense if you're chasing them.
  • Subby should be shot in the face for misspelling the liquor type wrong in the headline.

    And he'll have trouble picking up chicks with a farked-up face, so add loss of consortium to the list.
