Scary robbery attempt in Alabama gas station.
« on: July 09, 2019, 10:18:32 PM »
Guy tries to rob the store with a long knife, clerk responds with a machete of his own.  They get into a knife fight, clerk locks the door, guy breaks through, his gf was outside with a weapon too so clerk slashes her in the leg, smashes their car and when she tried to fight back, he smites her head. ( Hey, wow, I get to use the word SMITE finally and it fits naturally in this scenario).

That's one dedicated clerk...must be a family business.

Being in the family business...unc le told me...gun is here under register aluminum bat is here.  Use it if you need to...never leave register unattended even if customer asks for help in back of store.  I was just a kid. like 12 yrs old.

And machete are dull as heck...one of the most useless weapon in a real fight.

Come to a fight with a survival knife and you will get owned by an actual bayonet.  And if it comes to actual hand to hand combat.  That military issued folding spade is even more useful than your bayonet alone.  When the spade is at full deployment.  It's multi-function as an arm gauntlet operates as a shield and attack weapon at hacking or poking.  Depends on how you hold it in use.

If you want the money...I'll let you have it...probably a full roll of coins to the face...

The real villain is looking at you.  The last hero was just not true.  If everything works out in the end.  It's because all things make amends.

 A long time ago, shortly after college graduation, I worked at a bank. We all were called into a room during an orientation.

"If a robber comes in and demands money, give him all of the money he wanted," the boss said. "But also this stack."

There was a stack of old mixed bills worth $150.00 that had tracking devices on them.

"And don't try to be a hero by stopping the robber."

what idiot protects it's convenience store with a machete.  if one is protecting their property at all cost, such in this video...use a gun!

it would have been wiser to let the robber get away and file an insurance claim..."yeap, he took $2million out of cash register!" ha!

Yes, in most places I worked with, we had the tracker money stack as well.  That's the one reality in life that often don't get portrayed in movies...

People see movies...they think must work in real life.  There are more and more of these kind of people around now.

i used to work in RETAIL LOSS PREVENTION
if we see people stealing stuff on camera
people going to self checkout and faking scanning

we don't do anything
don't even go up and confront the customer
the store is already making big money $$$
those $20 shoe, yeah it only cost $2-3 to make


sometimes people return empty boxes back to the store for refund
oh well, we lose

but that's OK

the store is already making big money $$$$ on the other stuff in the store
we just write it off

I have been in situations where 911 were used...cops showed up 2 1/2 hours later...well.  That's how it works when real chit goes down.

When it wasn't so important...wo w they showed up withing 10 minutes.   Funny how that works.

one thing, i will just tell you guys is
those $50-100 shoes only cost like $5-10 to make
we make 5-20x in profit back
so it don't matter

Loss prevention is way different from criminal prevention and so forth.

you can steal as many stuff as you want at the store
where i use to do loss prevention  O0 O0 O0

99.99% we just let it go

our return department
they don't even open the box or ask question when you return something back

if we get an empty box, we get an empty box
oh well, no biggie
our 5x-20x profit on those shoe will offset that empty box
