Robber Doesn't Know Clerk is War Vet

Clean Rating: Safe for work.

Jon Lewis Alexander, 54, is no ordinary store clerk. He has worked several "high risk" jobs and served four tours of duty in Iraq during his 30 years in the U.S. military. And his training shows. Video surveillance from Saturday night captures the moment a would-be thief entered the Marionville, Mo., store where Alexander works. The thief hesitates for a moment and pulls a gun -- but not fast enough to dissuade Alexander from pulling his own Walther PPX 9 mm handgun and sticking it in the hapless thief’s mouth. No one was hurt and no shots were fired.

    Oooon second thought. I'll just have a pack of Lucky Strikes, a pack of Juicy Fruit and that Beer Jerky. Smart thug.

    It looks like the old man still remembers the need for good sight alignment and trigger squeeze.

    I wonder why the surveillance camera is moving as if someone is holding it and if there is someone holding it, wow do they have good timing.

    cant be real, look at the movement of the "security camera".

    So this is smart phone footage of actual security footage. If the actual footage is part of an ongoing investigation it can't be displayed.

    He shouldn't have treated that poor guy that way, I mean, how you expect a poor thief to make a living ?

    It's video of a video. You can see the video player controls popping out on the bottom at 00:03.

    The "moving security camera" is not a security camera. Someone recorded it with a camera in their hand while it was playing on the tv.

    Guess the bad guy was lucky the clerk wasn't looking to kill someone! The movement looks to be editing not the actual camera. Bad guy went to steal a new pair of underwear.
