Not quite sure how take this one, but here's a little ditty to hum while you're waiting for your next cab to arrive. Looks like just Saturday, shots were fired on Mill Avenue (away from the strip) when a store owner took umbrage at a customer attempting credit card fraud. ABC15 has the story in spades,

Tempe police spokeswoman Molly Enright said the owner of Up in Smoke, located near Mill Avenue and Baseline Road, told police he believed a customer was trying to commit credit card fraud and he pulled out a gun to stop him.

"Shots were fired, multiple shots were fired,” Enright said. “The owner of the shop chased the suspect out of the shop, through the shopping center, which has many vehicles on this busy Saturday afternoon."


Excessive use of violence.

Credit card fraud is nasty and all, but it's not the sort of thing that I would end someone's life over... Why not let the credit card company do that. Granted, they won't kill the perpetrator, but they'll sure help the police make sure that they see the inside of a 6x6 concrete cell for a while.

I suppose we're still waiting for the police to determine if the perpetrator of the crime had a weapon or not; but from the sound of it, the store owner chased the guy around the strip mall and out into Kiwanis park, all the while firing his weapon. Not exactly the safest environment to discharge a weapon and to continue to do that during a chase seems extremely excessive.

I know that I carry a weapon in my cab, my wands and my runed crowbar for one, but I'm not going to run around slinging firepower at someone who isn't currently intending me harm. There's got to be some sort of reciprocity of force.
