It looks like self-defense may be added to the list of “rights” we technically have but can’t actually utilize.
At a 7-Eleven in Stockton, California, two clerks successfully stopped a robbery when they confronted the thief and refused to let him leave with thousands of dollars of merchandise. A few years ago, they probably would have been hailed as heroes, but in today’s woke-ridden society, they’re now being investigated for assault.
Pat Gray plays the footage of the thief filling a large garbage can to the brim with various products. While one clerk blocks the exit, another hits the robber repeatedly with what appears to be some kind of wooden stick. Their joint effort successfully apprehends the man and spares the store what would have been a massive profit loss.
However, now these two clerks are being investigated for assaulting the alleged robber, who was undoubtedly bruised from the beating but was still healthy enough to walk out of the store after the incident.
Oh, and ask for a soda.
The video shows him asking one of the clerks if he can “get a soda” as he’s being escorted out of the store.
“You’ve got to be kidding me! The freaking guy had the unmitigated gall to ask for a soda on the way out,” laughs Pat, who can’t quit laughing at the utter absurdity of the situation.
