Store customers subdue knife-wielding robber

A would-be convenience store robber in Independence got a taste of citizen resistance — and a welt on the head. He could also get jail time.

Police said customers at the store took action to stop a man who was running around with a knife and demanding money.

Patrick J.E. Maze, 28, of Independence, was overpowered by the customers.

He was charged Friday with first-degree robbery, first-degree assault and armed criminal action.

    If the police can’t be there, we Americans can! It is time to get rid of these punks, gang bangers, dopers and anyone else that thinks your property should be theirs! We need every citizen – legal and law abiding – should be armed! I don’t care if it is just pepper spray! But for your sake, ARM yourselves!

    Maybe he will consider a different line of work if he gets a good butt-whoopin’ like this every time he goes to rob a joint.
