Predator to prey in 30 seconds.


equalizer59

Has anybody ever considered kicking the drywall in to get out through the next store over? Being that it’s a multi store building.


MurderMachine561

The wall. The roof. A backdoor. He doesnt even try.


08148692

People who need to resort to this sort of behaviour don't tend to be the smartest


[deleted]

Plenty of smart criminals look at all the worlds elite, theres just a lot of dumb ones too, like all people


terekkincaid

The smartest criminals lobby lawmakers to make their crimes legal. Or they are the lawmakers *cough* Congressional insider trading *cough*


FoodleGuy

Pelosi’s husband is that you? The stock market Wizard that never loses?


ColonelSpudz

Smart ones rob you with lawyers or a pen the dumb ones rob you with a gun.


ggtffhhhjhg

There is definitely more than one way out considering this definitely took place in either the US or Canada.

english_mike69

Didn’t look like this was on a patio in the Arctic.


formerbeautyqueen666

This is what I always wonder too! Like...surely there's a back door, no?


chopari

Me too. A fire exit at least no?


MissBandersnatch2U

Backdoor was my first thought


DoubleAholeTwice

My first thought is also always anal. Edit: Guess it's spelled "thought", not "though"!


Uchigatan

The video had time-skips, for all we know maybe he did try other things.


getmeapuppers

I remember an episode of cops when they arrest one guy trying to rob a convenient store but there’s suppose to be 2 suspects. They search the whole store and can’t find them. All of a sudden second guy falls through the paneled ceiling trying to find a way out lmao


Enginerdad

I've found that, unless they've done or been exposed to renovation or construction work, most people passively view things like walls as invincible. I don't think it's really a conscious thought, just that they've spent their whole lives going around walls and the idea that they could destroy one with items found in the room just never occurs to them.


ProfessionalStand450

Those are firewalls. Double 3/4 in sheet rock. You’d break your foot before you kicked through them. Might be 2x6 studs also. You could bash your way through but it would take a hammer.


[deleted]

Depends. But could be. If so There might be something he could use in the store to help.


Bowood29

That was my thought. He would be lucky if it was only 2x6 could easily be a block wall to get the firewall passed


Countrykal

Drywall is not what's separating buildings. You're kidding right?


equalizer59

We worked in a little strip mall where the tattoo shop expanded, and all we did was knock down the drywall move the studs over and reapply the new drywall and electrical.


nerojt

Yep, in many cases it is.


[deleted]

I’m a firefighter and shit is often not as it appears or should be. People break the law and cut corners frequently. Could be they are firewalls with lots of studs, or something else making passage hard. Could also be electrical wiring and stuff making it impassable. But worth trying at least. And if it was drywall I wouldn’t be shocked depending on where this is.


FranklinHoesevelt

I'm curious with you being a firefighter and all. Could he set off a fire alarm to get out. I mean surely, if there's a fire, the door should open and not just stay locked and burn everyone alive inside, right?


[deleted]

Looks like this door was locked with a physical key so I doubt it.


corvairfanatic

FF here. The doors i have seen that unlock are the red fire escape doors that are locked but unlock when the alarm goes off. These are usually in offices or hotels etc and not used as an exit other than in case of emergency. I’ve never seen them as the main exit or entrance to a store. Of course you can also customize alarms for a home to unlock your doors in case of an emergency and let’s say you are asleep and also allows emergency workers in. there’s several types of alarms for businesses but most are really only intended to alert others to exit. Most are not connected to a fire department and you still need to call for help. There are also alarms that release doors so that they CLOSE but not lock. This is to to keep fire isolated and decrease the amount of oxygen. Legally there should be two ways to exit in all buildings. Of course often this is not the case due to remodeling and whatnot.


R_E_Y_3

You'd be surprised, when you look


[deleted]

I was thinking that. Literally was trained in survival tactics like that when I got RIT certified. Luckily this guy is a pos and not a firefighter!


Economy_Sir1368

Most criminals aren’t that smart to begin with so I don’t think he would’ve thought of that.


Embarrassed-Town-293

That’s what I was thinking.


apachetrainer

What a privilege having the store just for yourself only celebrities enjoying this kind of service


joreyesl

The way he just casually walks in there and doesn’t even try to coerce them in compliance tell me he is used to getting his way on petty things. Reminds me of the thugs that would walk in the middle of a hallway and expect everyone else to walk around them.


Basserist71

This is one of my favorites.


PerfectionOfaMistake

Nobody got hurt, thats good on it.


BlowsyRose

True. I might even have felt sorry for him, if he wasn’t packing a loaded gun.


Jhushx

Which he used to shoot at a door multiple times. What if he missed? Or a ricochet hit someone walking by? Fuck this guy.


MurderMachine561

If hes in Florida hes fucked. We have a 10, 20, life law thats going to get shoved right up his ass. This video is old. I should try to find out how it ended. https://www.cga.ct.gov/2013/rpt/2013-R-0067.htm I love hearing him beg like that though. He went from Billy Badass to a little bitxh fast as hell.


EdGG

According to your link, 20 years. Double the initial sentence because he shot the door. Half of his life by the looks of it… Edit: [5 years, in Houston.](https://abcnews.go.com/US/robber-shoot-pray-store-staff-locks-inside-video/story?id=52119743)


Coldfusion21

More like 12, due to his prior sentencing. Assuming they ran concurrently.


schuldig

He's due to be released in 2028. Got denied parole last year because of this incident and his behavior while behind bars.


JTr3ad

This was in Houston. You “almost” feel bad with the apology, until you look up his COLLECTION of mugshots. Something like 17.


aardw0lf11

I've seen this multiple times, I think it's in Houston. Still... No surprise, there.


f14_pilot

no sympathy, he's only sorry cause he got caught... What about the stress and fear he caused for others.. Let's not forget who the real victims are here


wakaflocks145

But he has nothing. Please. Please. Please bro. Frfr no cap.


WaffleStompTheFetus

Good news, he's about to have 3 hots and a cot.


M00SEHUNT3R

Please, I have nothing. I have nothing. Please. I only shattered your door and damaged the frame trying to escape and would have totally run off leaving you to deal with the damages.


3xgun

Nothing except a gun he probably could have sold for a couple hundred bucks.


ruestecatherine

It's probably a Hi-point, so maybe like $74.99, used at local ye Olde greasy pawnshop. Apparently, having a shitty welfare handgun does not make an arch-criminal. I only counted four shots. He could only afford four? Damn, dawg.


terekkincaid

Prolly jammed and he didn't know how to clear it


3xgun

Video is grainy as shit, so it’s hard to tell, but it almost looked like a snub nose to me. Also sounded like he clicked on an empty chamber/bad round at one point. Either way, he still had something.


new_account_5009

Fuck that. Even if he didn't have a gun, he scared the living shit out of the people in the store. Dude doesn't deserve an ounce of sympathy.


PorkyMcRib

And used it.


cobigguy

Don't feel bad for him at all. He made the decision to rob the place, gun or not.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Cobek

Same, I knew it the moment I saw the title. His immediate freakout is a classic


qasedrftgyh123

Yeah this is a good one. He is a total piece of shit. Deserves worse than what he got.


Daisend

It’s a good one. This shows more reason why not to rob stores or anyone.


Zealous_Racer

This is amazing cuz he went through all stages of grief in this clip 1.) Shock: realises 2.) Denial: tries to open the door, thinking he can get out using his gun 3.) Anger: does everything he can do open the door in frustration 4.) Bargaining: begs to be let out 5.) Deppression: "Fuck I'm going to jail bro" 6.) Acceptance: can't do anything so just gives up


amineziani244

5 years


jayjay-bay

Yeah except that's a very arbitrary interpretation and not chronological at all. E.g #5 came between #2 and #3.


[deleted]

[удалено]


StrykeRXL1

Most convenient stores here hold a max of $150. Anything over is dropped in a wall safe.


xXxHondoxXx

Its a cell phone store.


NarutoDragon732

Even more worthless as the carriers will just mark them as stolen and the Sim cards won't function


xXxHondoxXx

He clearly wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed. This was his second time robbing this store too.


qaatilana_27

How much prison time will he get?


xXxHondoxXx

This is so old hes probably been out and robbed 5 more stores by now.


illegalmexican97

[He’s locked up actually for another 5 years.](https://inmate.tdcj.texas.gov/InmateSearch/viewDetail.action?sid=08995390)


conundrumbombs

His offense dates are mine and my sister's birthdays. So weird.


XxXPussySlurperXxX

Good riddance


StrykeRXL1

Armed robbery, in Canada, probably 2 for the gun, 4 for the offense. Will spend at least 1 year potentially 2 dead time earning time and a half. Plea deal will probably see him sentenced to 5, time of sentencing he would have to serve an additional 1 and half to 2 years.


explosivepimples

This was in TX what are you talking about


twistedtrick

The people that do these sorts of things lack the critical thinking skills to plan that far ahead...probably a contributing factor as to why they find themselves in such a desperate situation to begin with.


hieuniverse

He just went through the five stages of grief


jcallip

The five stages of thief.


Banditzombie97

Yeah. Not saying he didn’t earn it but I also don’t feel good seeing someone beg to god. Dude fucked up his life. Wonder why he did it. You don’t just wake up one day and rob a place.


IIIDevianceIII

5 years isn't that bad honestly for his history


Proper_Access_6321

I have nothing please. Well he only shot the door and caused thousands of dollars of damage on top of the trauma to the employees and customers. Wonder how much time he got?


GoabNZ

"I have nothing, please! I only tried to rob you and brought a loaded gun just in case, and likely would do it again to you or somebody else. Please don't let me go to jail for my crimes so I can continue my crimes. I've not taken anything of yours so now we are all good, right? Please!"


Peanokr

South America has the right idea of how to deal with these people.


blackop

They don't take any shit for sure


JimmyMack_

And how is that working out there?


[deleted]

Peak Reddit libertarian comment, when it's not REEE POLICE BAD, it's REEE POLICE NOT HARSH ENOUGH


drippyneon

Lol dude for every 1 person saying the police aren't harsh enough there are 1000 saying the opposite. There no reddit hive mind asking for harsher punishments like the guy you replied to. In face I'm quite sure that's the first time you've ever seen someone saying that on here, so you're just making this embarrassing comment about something that you've never even ween before.


koreanjesus5000

No they don’t


Ima_Starboy

Hopefully a lot, especially after firing off rounds


Scrambley

[5 years](https://abcnews.go.com/US/robber-shoot-pray-store-staff-locks-inside-video/story?id=52119743)


Curly-Pat

Says he was on deferred adjudication. Does that mean he has to complete the original 12 year sentence and after 5 years? “Bell was on deferred adjudication for 12 years from a 2015 aggravated robbery charge at the time of the April robbery.”


[deleted]

He should get extra time just for his rank stupidity alone


DramaticPoem2691

yeah extra time back in school


Atlhou

They don't catch the smart ones.


Tgrakua

In the modern day robbing a store seems to be the dumbest thing you can do. Figure if you want to make a dishonest living why not just do credit card fraud or scam elderly people via email or something.


YceiLikeAudis

That involves too much thinking. These people are too dumb even for that. Chances are that the most advanced piece of tech they have is the phone in their pocket and even that is often overwhelming them. I'm not complaining tho, a world with dumber criminals is a better world to live in.


Tgrakua

Your right. But dumb criminals tend to turn to violence. A smart criminal doesn’t even leave their desk, if they hurt people it’s via their pocketbooks only lol, dumb criminals will shoot someone over a wallet.


PreparedForZombies

Some quick Google search work for background shows he got 5 years (and already had another robbery case hanging over his head). April 2017, Houston TX. Lucky the store owner didn't shoot him... https://abcnews.go.com/US/robber-shoot-pray-store-staff-locks-inside-video/story?id=52119743


bowtie25

Ofc this is Houston


JimmyMack_

That article is annoying, he wasn't praying, he was appealing to the store worker.


RaiSai

What a little bitch. Thug enough to stick a gun in someone’s face, but turns into a complete pussy when faced with the consequences.


JohnDoeMTB120

With a baby present no less.


oblectoergosum

Is that bulletproof glass?


JohnDoeMTB120

Don't think so, it sounded like the glass shattered. But it had metal bars in addition to glass.


BlowsyRose

Jesus, if it’s not bullet proof glass than those bullets traveled well outside of the store. Remarkable that no one was hurt in that case.


JohnDoeMTB120

Yeah, I assumed he was shooting the metal lock but who knows. Either way super dangerous like you said.


completelytrustworth

Yea it sounded like there were a few pings of the bullets hitting metal probably thought real life was like a movie where he could just shoot the lock and kick the door down


JohnDoeMTB120

Exactly haha


Umbreony

LMAO DUMBASS GOT WHAT HE DESERVED! 😂🤣 Really glad everyone got out so this dude can't make things much worse. That person in charge of place needs a raise!


Chimpchompp

No back door??


saraparallelogram

Where I live it’s illegal and a fire code violation to not have another egress


___pa___

In NYC, which has some pretty stringent building code, a commercial space with less than 30 occupants and 75 feet or less travel distance can have a single means of egress as long as it discharges directly to the street.


RootTootPrintNShoot

This is true for 99% of the US


8ad8andit

I'm guessing there was another door but probably also locked.


BDub927

Oh, he'll be seeing some backdoor.


Jaded_Goth

Don’t threaten me with a good time.

SlightMaintenance791

UnknownSpecies19

Fuck this guy. He had lives round in that gun around a baby, who knows what could have happened.


Ill-Sea7527

“ I have nothing “ welp, you’ll have three hots and a cot soon 🥸😂


NoCalHomeBoy

I love this video. Nothing more satisfying than a rat piece of shit getting his comeuppance.


Hoonsoot

Niiice. Its fantastic when stupid pieces of crap like this get caught by their own stupidity.


satchel0fRicks

Well well well, if it isn’t the consequences of my own actions…


Eikibunfuk

It's funny cuz what idiot robs a place without casing it first. Not that I enjoy thievery in the first place but being stupid wins really dumb prizes


prittyflutterbystar

Right? Is there no back exit? He should know this, beforehand!


Eikibunfuk

Sometimes I wish this would happen to some of those stores in California right now like. if you seen those videos it's like what the hell. They just casually Rob stuff out there and sadly it's usually people of my skin color and I'm like why who raised you.


prittyflutterbystar

Yeah, I've seen some vids of the most casual, blaśe robberies out there, like wtf?!


thenbmeade

“I have nothing” well good news! You’re about to have a roof over your head and 3 meals a day!


raxtich

I guess he was probably too panicked to think about trying the back door?


BusinessGas2264

At that very moment, he realized that he fucked up 🤣🤣🤣


Murky_Cauliflower_98

A job is good enough!

As a black man, I have ZERO REMORSE watching him get arrested. Scum of the earth.

Cool but what does skin color have to do with this tho

As a Puerto Rican Mohican I'm wondering this too.

BantumBane

Um, the customer just standing there with her baby in a stroller while he’s committing a robbery ONLY to since the urgency when the other people start to flee? Wth


bigdrew444

I'll just leave [THIS](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_asNhzXq72w&ab_channel=GamingSoundFX) here


OpinionBearSF

> Please, I have nothing. Maybe not, but soon he'll have (another?) charge on his criminal record, so that's something. > Help, please. Thankfully the police showed up pretty quickly to help get him out of the area that he was stuck in. EDIT: [Robber tries to shoot and pray his way out of store after staff locks him inside: Video](https://abcnews.go.com/US/robber-shoot-pray-store-staff-locks-inside-video/story?id=52119743) And [here](https://inmate.tdcj.texas.gov/InmateSearch/viewDetail.action?sid=08995390) is his inmate record.

The fact that the gun is loaded means I have ZERO sympathy towards him

“I have nothing” other than the a gun.

Probably there was a back door

Notice anything familiar about this criminal? I'll give you moment..


DiamondDoge92

Bruuuuuuhhhhhh


yCognacPapi

Just adding charges for every shot fired at the door, thinking this a movie instead of real life. Only thing that would’ve made it funnier is if the bullet ricocheted in his direction


JustAnotherMiqote

Got real "humble" and "honest" when he needs something from someone. I'm sure he's a reasonable guy who would have made a positive change in the world if they were to let him out lol


Current_Individual47

"Please, I have nothing. Please." 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣


Ima_Starboy

Lying ass ain’t sorry and don’t give a shit about anyone


chiefs_fan37

Lmao what did he think would happen? "I have nothing, please." Understandable I'll unlock the door and you can go on your way. We'll just pretend this didn't happen

Watching this guy devolve almost makes you feel sorry for him. Almost.


AlejandroMP

Funny seeing someone discover that guns don't work like they sometimes do in movies - they aren't skeleton keys.


VRSNSMV_SMQLIVB

Imagine being this stupid. Begging for mercy when he did that to those people.


crspycantlop

Don’t these people have insurance? I’d rather get robbed then murdered


Bundle_of_Organs

So entertaining to watch this scumbag squirm in his own regret and self pity.


WonderWoofy

What I don't understand... why shoot the lock if you aren't going to try to turn the core? Like even *if* you manage to shoot it in just the right way to shear the pins... it's a deadbolt. It still needs to be physically disengaged, doesn't it?


Only_Fantastic

Suuuuuuuuuuuuuck it

"I'm going to jail" Should have thought about that part before trying to rob a store while packing a loaded gun

Armed robbery what a fool, what if he would’ve shot the owner or the woman & her baby. This shit is getting way out of hand.

At the very least this idiot should have hidden the gun and claimed he only brought a toy.
