Toy Gun

  • The owner of a bakery in Calumet City shot a man who was using a toy gun to usher him and an employee to the back of the store during a robbery, police said.

    The incident happened about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at Cal City Bakery, near State Line Road and 154th Place in the south suburb, said Calumet City police Chief Edward Gilmore.

    Unbeknownst to the bakery owner, one of the two men who tried to rob the store was wielding a toy handgun. The gun appeared “fairly realistic,” Gilmore said.

    The owner of the bakery watched the robbery unfold from closed-circuit television from the center part of the building. The man with the gun ushered an employee and then the owner toward the back of the building.

    The owner wondered why they were being taken to the back of the building after complying with the robbers' demands for cash.
There shouldn't be a store or store owner without a gun nearby after the Brown's Chicken massacre. The Chief of Police out in Calumet City pretty much cleared the bakery owner. Hopefully, the mayor out there gives him a medal.

Bakery owner was never in any danger of being charged. Chief Gilmore is like Dart. Never misses a chance to be on TV.
Good shoot all the way around, except for the fact that dude lived.

Anytime they change the scene of the crime, only bad things happen. Glad the owner was able to stop whatever the criminal had planned.

We need to shoot more robbers...

Then there would be less robbers...

Then there would be less shooting...

A word of caution, gangbangers in some parts have been painting their real firearms with toy paints colors like lime green, hot pink, bright yellow and so on. They do this so cops will hesitate to shoot them.

Just goes to show the gun ban is working when robbers have to use toy guns.

The store owner fired 7 times and hit the bad guy 7 times... someone PLEASE sign this guy up for the department. Accuracy like that is sorely needed.

I heard Attorney General Eric Holder is opening a civil rights investigation just like h did to Zimmerman.


What's that you say? Only an agent of the government can violate one's civil rights?

Ya, that's what I thought too.

If we don't allow public funds to be used to pay a felon's pension, I hope we don't allow public funds to pay for this guy's medical care. Seems fair to me.

Good for him! And now, an outstanding idea for Illinois to follow, provided we actually execute the mf-ers vs letting them languish for years getting appeal after appeal: http://news.yahoo.com/utah-revives-plan-executions-firing-squad-202248379.html

Chief Gilmore is usually on tv about officer involved shootings...and sticking up for the officer. How that reminds anyone of Dart, I do not know. On an inquisitive note: the guy made 7 of 7 shots at what appears to be close range, without lethal results. I'm kind of confused about why this makes him such a great shot. Most importantly he's alive and well without any injury.
