Only in Allen County

I'm sure many of you have heard the story of the high school kid that was shot and killed while trying to rob a video store.
Willie H. Winder III, of Fort Wayne, was shot by a clerk at VIP Video, 7404 S. Anthony Blvd., shortly before 5 p.m. after he entered the store, pulled a handgun and demanded cash, police said.

The clerk, whose identity has not been released by police, has not been charged with a crime, and police said it’s unknown whether he will be.

If the facts that have been presented are true then why in the world would we even consider charging the clerk for defending himself? Are our prosecutors that mixed up? Stupid question. They let a man only serve 6 months for shooting two unarmed men in the Hobby Lobby parking lot, they allow sexual predators to routinely serve the most lenient sentences imaginable, but a man being robbed at gunpoint defends himself and that is the guy they are considering incarcerating?

Only in Allen County...

It is absurd unless the police had some eidence that something was seriously "out of place."
