Attempted Robbery Thwarted By War Veteran Grocery Store Clerk

You should never pull a gun on a war veteran.

Thieves, robbers, general people up to no good: don’t try to pull anything on someone who’s prepared.

Watch what happens when a burglar attempts to rob a store clerk who is also a war veteran and knows how to handle intense situations.

In the video, the robber walks straight up to the counter, takes a drag from his cigarette, and immediately pulls his gun out and says, “You need to give me all your money.”

That was a mistake.

Former military police officer Jon Lewis Alexander explains, “I pulled my weapon up and put it against his mouth and told him ‘You need to get out of here before I blow your head off,’ and he backed right on out the door.”

Attempted robbery in general is a bad idea, I think we can all agree on that, but attempted robbery plus a store clerk who happens to be a veteran with a pistol on his hip is a terrible one.
