On the "very good criminal case" front:

So the owner should have waited to be assaulted to find out whether or not he was going to be assaulted when the perp came over the counter and was inside of two feet?

You have the benefit of knowing the outcome after the fact. Know what the owner knew? Multiple men in masks were robbing him and closing with him in a second - and that many of these types of robberies end up with dead store owners.

Any good defense attorney will bring all kinds of expert witnesses to attest to that and cite hundreds of cases.

I"m not saying he's got a slam dunk: I'm saying that if the DA were to press charges, he'd be the world's biggest asshole.

A lot of what you covered mirrors my own thoughts. I hope he has a good attorney. Speaks a lot of a society when the criminals have more recourse and rights than the victims of violent crimes.

While this is all true, it's also true that there are a lot of 'biggest asshole' DAs out there...

Just sayin'...
