Sword-Wielding Robber Killed at Vegas Dairy Queen - ABC News That's a short story, eh? Now imagine the alternative ending: Robber terrorizes and injures clerks and patrons; flees and eludes before crashing and causing more injuries; is shot and arrested by LE; is hospitalized until ready for transfer to jail; is assigned a Public Defender at arraignment; is housed and fed until trial a year later; is found guilty and sentenced to a lengthy and expensive prison stay; uses his time in stir to hone his skills and get his physique in shape. And then is released to walk among the unsuspecting once more. Any death is a tragedy, no doubt. But I still like the short version of this story better. Let's hope this story chills the hearts of those who might consider armed robbery a viable option for solving their money problems. One thing is an absolute certainty: this robber will never again harm or threaten anyone.
