Robber Shot and Killed by Hero Customer at Taqueria


“A customer at Ranchito Taqueria shot and killed a man who robbed the restaurant in southwest Houston late Thursday night, according to the Houston Police Department.

Houston police said the armed man in a mask came inside the restaurant, demanding money and wallets from customers. However, as he was leaving, one of those customers shot the suspect.”


Dining out isn’t just a means of getting sustenance, it’s a form of entertainment and relaxation. When you patronize a restaurant, you don’t have to worry about cooking, the server waits on you hand and foot, and after the meal you don’t have to wash the dishes. An hour of bliss in a chaotic world.

The last thing you expect is for a thug to burst into the restaurant, waving a gun and robbing the customers of their wallets, cell phones and other valuables.

As the criminal was leaving, one of the customers shot the suspect repeatedly. The superhero then collected the stolen goods from the robber and returned them to the other patrons. The rest of the people in the restaurant left the scene before the police arrived.

The criminal worthless piece of human excrement was armed with a BB gun, and some bleeding hearts are complaining that it was overkill for the hero customer to shoot him more than once.

Bullshit! First of all, a BB gun can cause serious damage, such as taking out an eye. Secondly, the heroic customer didn’t know that it wasn’t a real gun, and he should be commended for putting his own life in danger by shooting the criminal. Finally, the robber is dead, which means he won’t be terrorizing and robbing any other hapless diners.

The hero has not been identified and is not charged at this time; however, the police want to question him. The only reason why authorities should be seeking the identity of the shooter is to present him with a key to the city of Houston.
