93. You have a few "what ifs" that are not accurate.

"If he had time to go to his car and get his gun he had time to dial 911" - Did he have a cell phone on him? When I'm working on a salesfloor it is against policy for me to have a cell phone on me. Not aure what Autozone policy is. I checked the address and there are no payphones at the Autozone or in the strip center behind it, or at the Dairy Queen across the street. Calling the police may have not been an option.

"That would be stupid and irresponsible with respect to the other workers in the store and any customers." - There were no customers in the store, they were closing up. The only two people in the store was the manager and the robber.

Personally, I do not feel it is so black and white. Each and every single robbery is unique and has to be looked at on an individual level. There were no customers in the store, there was no payphone nearby, manager was led to the back alone at gunpoint, etc...

There is no data that compiles robberies of like stores specific to auto parts, but there are reports for retail establishment robberies pertaining to convienience retail. In those reports for homicide during the course of a robbery 15% were aquaintence based and 65% were random/senseless. Meaning that the employees/customers that were killed did nothing to provoke the attack. The remaining 20% either fought back or failed to follow the directions of the criminal.
