Here’s How You Fail at Robbing an Internet Cafe

The Palms Internet Cafe in Marion County, Florida offers internet access for a reasonable fee, along with sodas, snacks, and a quiet atmosphere.

But if you plan on attempting to rob it, you should be aware that its patrons are oftentimes armed.

Two men learned this the hard way, as their heist was promptly shut down by an old guy with a gun and a good sense of right and wrong.

According to Fox Orlando, the two 19-year-old robbers walked into the cafe and demanded money. Samuel Williams wasn’t having any of that. He pulled out his gun and chased the two men out of the cafe.

In the process, he shot one in the arm and one in the hip and buttocks. The best part about this is that we have it all on security video:

After this incident and one in May involving two idiot would-be robbers who forgot to log out of Facebook, it appears that internet cafes are quite the stupid criminal flytrap.

    That old dude wasn’t playing around. Although he’s a horrible shot. Those “thugs” took off like bats out of hell. Funny!

      Yeah, he fired quite a few shots to only score 2 direct hits and one glancing blow.

    You guys are dead wrong. to move in the manner he did, cool collected and calm firing at the rate he did under pressure, he showed more skill than most seasoned police officers do under the same pressure. Firing a gun is not as easy as video games make it out to be especially when its at a human being

    Hell Yeah!! Way to go my man! If we saw this happening more often our problems with all the little wannabe gangsters would disappear pretty quick. You notice how quickly they were out of there when confronted by someone else who had a gun. Typical bully behavior, big and bad while picking on someone that can’t defend themselves and running scared like the cowards they are when stood up to. I love it!!

    the man that shot the robbers will probably get in trouble.
