Atlanta, GA area: Man tries to rob people in line for LeBron James sneakers, is shot and killed

Quote:
Atlanta (CNN) -- A man, who tried to rob a group of people waiting in line to buy the new $180 LeBron James sneakers, was shot and killed when one of the customers pulled out a gun, Atlanta police said.

The incident took place before dawn Saturday outside a shoe store in Atlanta's Little Five Points area.

The group was waiting for the store to open for the day so they could buy the LeBron X Denim on its first day of release.

Police said the man approached the group with a gun in hand and tried to rob them.

One of the men in the group took out his own handgun and fired, said Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos.

"A number of witnesses were interviewed and this appears to be self-defense," he said.

Campos said the customer was not charged.

Other than over-priced shoes, I'd say this is a perfect story.

$180 for shoes? Who's robbing who?

What does a caring, sensitive
person feel when they are forced
to use a handgun to stop a threat?


Recoil.

I have long thought that Play Station should produce a game called "Grand Theft Play Station" in which the object is to rob people camped out overnight in front of the electronics store waiting for the newest game to be released.

Fad-Followers are what I call those people, and most if not all of 'em don't have two nickles to rub together, much less NEED those shoes. :roll: Might as well left the guy rob them, they were throwing their money down the drain anyway, not that the now dead thief was in the right, but....
