28. Getting shot while burglarizing

... is a job hazard. Just like the risk of getting hepatitis for health care workers.

A prospective burglar should consider the risk implications in their 'chosen field'.

The tragedy of the story consists of the 20% casualty rate; given close quarters and the weapon used, the store owner has some room for improvement.

Sergeant York (according to folklore) would shoot the guys farthest away, and then work inward. So as not to 'spook' the guys in front.
