"Do as the robber says, cooperate and you shouldn't get hurt, don't provoke him."

Real life shows this sad little phrase does not work.
Thursday evening Mike Dayem was in a battle for his life. A masked man entered Mike’s Food Market on Cleveland’s east-side with a gun and demanded money. When Mike’s 19 year-old son, Abe, who also works at the store, gave the robber everything in the cash register, the robber said it wasn’t enough and demanded more. Then the robber shot Abe in the head.
don't worry. Abe is ok, and the burglar. Well....
That is when Mike grabbed his own gun and returned fire, striking the robber in the neck and chest. The robber fled from the store, leaving the money. Cleveland Police found the robber on the sidewalk about a block away. He was declared dead about 30 minutes later.
That is how it should end, even as blood thirsty as that sounds.
