Partially paralyzed jewelry shop owner shoots armed robber

The punk even stole a necklace from the shop owner’s 4-year old granddaughter.  Click HERE for details VIA the Chicago Tribune. 

The 19-year-old robber will live, but likely will walk with a limp for a while.



It's nice to see victims fight back against those who would threaten and commit mayhem such as this. Hopefully, he'll be getting his medical problems taken care of in the prison for many years to come. I mean, we'd be paying for it at the public hospitals via taxes if we weren't paying for it in prison.

They took the man's gun. I guess this is normal police procedure but how about a regulation saying that the police must supply a "loaner" of the same quality and caliber. Who will protect the man tomorrow, the police?

Grace and peace.

El Fisho, my guess is the punk will be out in three years or less. Illinois is BROKE; Governor Quinn has been doing wholesale "early outs" and closing prisons.

Pumice, if an practicing attorney will oversee the transfer (being as he is in Cook County; I am also unsure if Rogers Park was annexed into Chicago) I will gladly donate a pistol to the man.

(I would be surprised if a relative or a member of his community has not already re-armed the man.)

Greetings from Texas,
I have had more than one law enforcement coment that it was cheaper to kill armed robbers than shoot them. Cuts down on repeat offenders.
Just saying...
