In a case of divine karma, a Hawthorn, California armed robber almost delivered the taxpayer relief with a shot to his own head. It happened at a Denny’s Restaurant as his intended victims fought back. Thankfully, no good guys got hurt. As for the bad guy, thanks to the wonders of modern medicine, he will probably live as the hospital has him in critical but stable condition.
The surveillance video shows (click the image above to see it) shows how the hooligan retreated when his little criminal enterprise went sideways. He took off for the getaway car, but his partner took off, leaving him to fend for himself. The robber’s foot speed, on the other hand, was no match for a late model four-door sedan. It struck him like the fist of Lyssa, the Greek goddess of rage.
Police said that as the fleeing suspect floated through the air, finger apparently on his trigger, he discharged his pistol into his brain housing. As the restaurant owner told ABC7, “I am not going to say any prayers for the suspect because he kind of got what’s coming to him, you know. He decided to rob somebody and that’s what happens. You’re taking a chance whenever you do something like that.”
