NBC - An armed security guard, hired by Apple to protect one of its San Diego stores, confronted and killed a smash and grab suspect in a gun battle early Monday. The Apple store manager was working inside when just before 7 a.m. the guard confronted two men and a woman. The suspects had smashed into the store's front doors, sending shattered glass out onto the sidewalk. The guard told police a gun battle started when one suspect produced a handgun. More than a dozen yellow evidence markers were on the ground just outside the store's front door. Investigators said the three suspects got into a silver Acura and crashed into a light pole and a post before stopping on the curb outside Banana Republic. The passenger side door was left open with what appeared to be a body still inside. Police confirm the unidentified man was shot and killed by the security guard. The second man and woman ran from the mall heading east, police said.
I take back everything I ever said about Apple, those guys are straight gangster. Frigen security guards packing live heaters, "deading" would be thieves...sheeaaaattttt.
And they aint even firing warning shots, just straight kill shots to the head. There is an IPad2 shortage crisis going on people, this is for real. Can't have hooligans looting an already short supply, you've got to take the necessary actions to safeguard your supply. The second you let your guard down the thieves steal your shit and set up shop right down the opposite corner, peddling their stolen goods to users non the wiser. Pure profit. That's how you get run right out of the consumer tech game.
Wouldn't surprise me in the least if the Shoot to Kill mandate came straight from Steve Jobs himself. Just a cold calculating Godfather figure, straight to the core.
