After telling the customer to leave, Samuel said the customer began ripping items off shelves and threatened to kill him, and refused to leave the store.
“I see my kids (ages 2, 4 and 6) cry, cry, cry and my wife scared inside,” he explained. “I [was] waiting for the cops and the cops is not coming.”
Samuel said he eventually got his dagger from behind the counter and waved it to scare off the customer. “I tell the police officer, you can check the camera. I not touch the guy with the knife,” he said.
Not entirely clear what happened, but it seems he was charged with something. No word if the customer who started it was arrested.
Customer not charged. Storeowner still in hot water. Video still not forthcoming.
Only in New Jerseystan do you wait 30 min for the police to show up when you are threatened and then you are charged with a crime for protecting yourself.
Can't have the peasants getting uppity, can we.
I just read the article. I don't think I have ever been this confused before.
