    Not so off-topic… a successful robbery system requires not only the existence of all the individual parts, but their correct arrangement and marshalling. The robber nearly became a victim of natural selection himself, after his intended victim co-opted the already functioning weapon sub-system. Obviously this robbery was not intelligently designed!

    Could have been staged. The shop owner looks remarkably calm as he levels the weapon against the would-be robber. And the robber fumbles the gun in a rediculously spaztic manner. Maybe it’s all designed…

    …or maybe we are seeing survival of the fittest, in action?

    I agree with DaveScot. Clerk is obviously a member of the bizarre and ubiquitous “gun culture.” Not only that, he’s left-handed.
