Tables Turned on Florida Internet Cafe Armed Robbers

The Internet cafe patron who shot and injured two men as they tried to rob the business will likely not face any criminal charges.

“Based on what I have seen and what I know at this time, I don’t anticipate filing any charges,” said Bill Gladson of the State Attorney’s Office for 5th Judicial Circuit.

Gladson said he has reviewed the security surveillance video from the cafe. While he still awaits final reports from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, he said the shooting appeared justified.

Samuel Williams, 71, who fired the shots, has a concealed weapons permit, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Under Florida law, a person is allowed to use deadly force if he or she fears death or serious injury to themselves or others. As long as the person isn’t committing a crime and is in a place where he or she has a right to be, they are considered to be acting within the law. _Source

One never knows when President Obama or Reverend Sharpton will take a personal interest whenever Florida thugs are shot. I suppose it depends upon how closely the perpetrators resemble the US president's nonexistent son.

Below you see a short video of the armed robber thugs being chased down by an indignant 71 year old cafe patron, who turned the tables on a pair of punks.

The perpetrators had not expected anyone in the cafe to be armed.

Rampant spillover crime in places such as Florida tend to induce a counter-reaction within ordinary citizens. Concealed carry permits and armed neighborhood watch captains make criminal activity outside the 'hood more dangerous. Previously soft targets may be hardening.
