That brings back memories.

US looters are interviewed as they steal goods from a local store. In response to the looters, Korean store owners start to fight back with guns.

If it was my store and looters threatened to kill me if I didn't let them steal my life's work, I'd use lethal force. I'm surprised this hasn't happened yet. Those people are worse than junkyard animals. There is no excuse to rob innocent people!

Wow, that is all so crazy and bizarre coming from a 1st-world country, both the looting and the shooting

At least those looters were still aware that what they were doing was wrong. They said otherwise, but their body language gave them away...

There were A LOT of unsolved shootings from the LA riots. There is a VERY good chance that some of those people were shot by store owners who kept quiet about it for obvious reasons and that the shooting victim may never even have know for sure whom shot them (or lived to tell about it.)

Out of the east a stranger came a law book in his hand but it was no good because the point of a gun was the only law that Liberty understood ... and you know, the man who shot Liberty Valance was the bravest of them all.

So just because it's shoes that makes it okay? A thief is a thief. Doesn't matter if it's Billions in the treasury or a 100.00 pair of Nikes. Both are pathetic pieces of crap.

Presumably, your " life's work" is insured.

Your " life's work " won't be worth more if you become paralyzed or brain dead or killed by a bullet.
