Business just became more dangerous for Milwaukee's armed robbers

Something is missing in the JSOnline articles about the shooting death of SAB Miller executive, Vic Milford. Check
here, here, and here.

Did you get it? There is no description of the assailants. Nothing on height, weight, race or ethnicity. Nada.

The Journal-Sentinel's Special Editor in Charge of Ethnic News Cleansing must not work weekends. This is the one of the early NewsWatch reports from Saturday.
A 42-year-old man was shot and killed early today after being robbed outside of a bar, Milwaukee police said. According to Capt. Michael Young: The man and two or three women were walking from a bar to the man's car in the 200 block of W. Walker St. about 1:10 a.m. today. As they reached the car, they were approached by two men, one of whom was carrying a handgun. The victim handed over his wallet and was shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police would not reveal the victim's identity, where he was wounded or how many times he was shot. The suspects were described as Hispanic males, in their mid-20s to early 30s, both about 5-feet-4-inches to 5-feet-7-inches tall and 140 to 160 pounds.
I wonder if Tom Kerschner still has a job. At the very least, I know there will be a letter in his personnel file and an extended session in the Diversity Reeducation Gulag.

Now to my headline. There is a long-standing paradigm for armed robbery business transactions in the United States. If the victim hands over his money, wallet and other valuables without a fight or other resistance; the armed robber will not shoot him. This social contract serves both the victim's and the armed robber's interests. The victim escapes with his life for only the small cost of the valuables he carries. For the robber, this agreement helps speed the transaction and minimizes the risk of the victim resisting with deadly force.

The rules must be different where these perpetrators come from. Their rules go something like: the robber takes the money from the cooperative victim, then shoots him dead. If this becomes the norm in the U.S., suddenly we will have no reason to cooperate with the armed robber. Grab for the gun, stall for time, or run for your life, these are all logically preferable options to placidly handing over your cash and waiting to die.

And if, by chance, you have a loaded handgun on your person, blast the assailant before he knows it is coming.

Like in the Old West, a six-gun holstered on your hip provides for a fast draw. Be sure to prominently display that pistol to avoid concealed carry charges.

Rather disturbing thought-line, there, Headless.

See my post, taking off from yours.
