Ahh, the holidays, when a young man’s (and woman’s) fancy turns to thoughts of… armed robbery. Thanks to Ed for sending this one in, which is bizarre even by DGC standards…
Tampa man shot to death while trying to pull off robbery
A Tampa man who was part of a robbery setup was shot to death early Friday by the intended victim and a Pinellas County woman was charged with murder for taking part in the plan, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.
Erika T. Sanez had met Travis Weller about a month ago and arranged a date. Sanez met Weller at a different location before taking him to a vacant home. Inside the home, three men were waiting for Weller, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
When they tried to rob him, Weller opened fire. One of the bullets hit, Marlin Walker, 20, once in the chest. Weller called 911, telling a dispatcher that several people had tried to rob him and he had shot one of them.
Man, I thought I had “dates from hell” when I was a single man…
Next up, if you’re going to do the job, do it right. Thanks to Shane W for these two.

Goblin shoots store owner in leg, robs store, decides to go back for more, wounded store owner retrieves a 9mm in the meantime and introduces robber’s insides to the outside.
And whatever you do, don’t burglarize rural homes in Kentucky. It is the very definition of a high-risk occupation.
Burglary Suspect Shot, Killed In Clay County

Or maybe something else. As a recovering J-School attendee, I feel for the reporter on this story, as he/she only can write about what the police are telling them, but come on, get a few facts before you write the story.
Either way, the Thanksgiving weekend was a busy weekend indeed!
