  • If A Robber Wants Your Money, Give It To Them


    When a robber walks in to a place of business the general advice
    given is to give them what monetary request they make and let them
    leave. Fighting for materials items is never a good idea. There isn’t a
    dollar amount one can put on a life or on a box cutter across the face.

    But in recent weeks, 2 Boston area store clerks fought off robbers.
    One man used a pepper spray and a woman used a metal rod. Both
    situations could have easily gone wrong, but these two clerks decided to
    fight. Mind you, I’m no pacifist.

    The Boston Globe reported
    “The man leaned over the counter, said “Hi,’’ and, with a knife in his
    right hand, calmly warned the clerk to stay away from any alarm buttons,
    according to a surveillance video that captured the encounter. “Give me
    the money in the register now. No buttons. Put the phone down.’’ Then
    he turned his head. And that was when the clerk swung a 4-foot, 15-pound
    iron rod from behind the counter and brought it crashing down on his

    “He had the knife, and I had something prepared, too,’’ she said, holding the rod that knocked the knife from the man’s hand.”


    Congratulations to the clerk. It’s always nice to hear when good
    conquers evil. This situation could have gone very wrong if she missed.
    History proves when a drugged up animal wants your money, they will
    often take the money and run.

    It is true offering resistance has been proven to stop an attack
    situation more than 80% of the time. But, I only recommend someone offer
    resistance when their personal security
    is at risk. You can argue that this woman’s personal security was at
    stake, but robbery response 101 is to give the money up and let them
    leave. If they want your money, wallet, purse, just toss it in one
    direction and run screaming on the other.
