I mean, really.  He asked for it.

Let me get this right.

"I was literally scared for my life. At this point, I thought he was going to kill me..."

"He slammed me against my car, threw me to the ground, and started beating me unmercifully."

"I was screaming for him to stop. I told him, you know, I'm really sorry, you know, it was a fake weapon. I was never going to hurt you at all."

OK.  I have to admit it.  This story actually made me laugh.  You see, those words are not the words of a crime victim, but those of a criminal.

Tucker Connor tried to rob someone at an ATM.  Sure, he was using a toy gun, but it appears that his intention was to use the threat of severe bodily harm and injury in order to deprive someone else of hard-earned money.

Now, I don't know if the potential victim (who apparently did not get the memo on how to be a good victim) knew it was a toy gun.  I don't really care, actually.

Because if you intend to make someone think you are going to kill them, it's simply beautiful poetic justice that they return the favor.

If you say or act like you have a real gun, don't be surprised if people believe you.

On the other hand, good on the citizen for not believing the thug wasn't going to hurt him.

I know it's wrong but I laughed at the young thug. Guess his fight record is 0 Wins and 1 Loss -- and what a loss it is!!

This is what should happen to most if not all robbers.

Now, I breathlessly await the plea agreement. I'm thinking this brilliant strategist does not want this told before a jury.
