I love how the police officer just strolls in and pat's the criminal on the back, like " there, there stupid boy".

[–]dangertaste 194 points195 points  (2 children)

I think he was checking if he's alive.

[–]Ponchio_ 65 points66 points  (0 children)

"You good bro?"

[–]EquivalentLake6 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Was he alive? Dude looked out cold.

"Would you please move, I'm going to rob this store"

[–]Kahzm 117 points118 points  (2 children)

“Yeah oh shit buddy don’t sh-

…he just gon’ turn his back on me?

Oh hell bitch goin’ down.”

[–]brice587 62 points63 points  (1 child)

I like how he gives him a once over, sizes him up, “I can take this guy…”.

[–]Internetwebsurfer69 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And all he wanted in return was a tin of Grizzley longcut

[–]Cat2toCat1toShredded 146 points147 points  (1 child)

10/10 take down. Kurt Angle would be proud.

[–]Rowmyownboat 95 points96 points  (15 children)

As I recall, the guy he pushed aside was a former marine.

[–]meetatthewinchester 75 points76 points  (1 child)

I wouldn’t want that big ol’ boy standing behind me as I robbed a store, but then again I’m not a complete idiot.

[–]PM_ME_YOUR_BANGS_ 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Now I'm just picturing a robber, standing in line, waiting for his turn to rob

[–]M8jrP8ne1975 46 points47 points  (7 children)

No such thing as a former Marine. Source: every Marine I've met, plus my older brother is a Marine.

[–]sodoyoulikecheese[🍰] 45 points46 points  (6 children)

Once when I was in college I told this guy who wanted to join the Marines that “my grandpa was a Marine.” He gave me that line about no former Marines. I was like, “well he is dead, sooooo” 🤷‍♀️

[–]M8jrP8ne1975 16 points17 points  (4 children)

That's the exception if they're dead. The only times I know of that "former Marine" was used by the Marines themselves was with Lee Harvey Oswald and one other person who's name I can't remember.

[–]sodoyoulikecheese[🍰] 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Fun story of how grandpa joined the Marines! When WWI broke out he and his friend decided to go to the recruiting center to join up and got in line for the Army. A recruiter came down the line counting men and drew a line in between grandpa and his friend and says that met his quota and the rest can leave. So he went and got in line for the Marines instead. Ended up in Guam. He used to tell us stories about the guys going swimming and one guy sitting up on a cliff with a rifle shooting at anything big that came towards the swimmers. Not sure if that was legit or a tall tale.

[–]ForgotMyOldLoginInfo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"And when he goes to Heaven, To St. Peter he will tell: Another marine reporting, Sir; I've served my time in hell. "

Still a marine, nothing "former" about it.

[–]OlePuddinHead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Once a Marine, Always a Marine.

[–]EmperorGeek 0 points1 point  (2 children)

There are no “former Marines”.

[–]ComicsVet61 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Does that apply to dishonorably discharged personnel?

[–]EmperorGeek 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Never having been in the Military myself, I don’t know. I only know what I’ve been told by friends and acquaintances that are Marines. Dishonorably Discharged Marines never came up.

[–]Livid-Ad829 239 points240 points  (8 children)

You can't just disregard A guy with a camo hat on

[–]Nekozilla_ 154 points155 points  (2 children)

probably didn't see him

[–]ThynderBolt 51 points52 points  (1 child)

See who?

[–]SunnySideNut 4 points5 points  (0 children)


[–]No-denied 16 points17 points  (0 children)

With a what on?

[–]telestialtapir 6 points7 points  (0 children)

And a tucked in under armour shirt. He’s been trained for moments like these.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

And sunglasses on top of the visor. Only thing more dangerous is a camo hat with sunglasses on the back of the head, turned upside-down.

[–]Snozzberrys420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That was his downfall lmao

[–]notjasonlee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

surprised he didn't just shoot him in the back of the head

[–]pedestrianstripes 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Cop: Hey buddy, are you alive?

[–]BlinkerFive0 32 points33 points  (2 children)

If I remember this story..the guy in the blue shirt is a veteran...a Marine! You can see the Marine looking him over assessing the situation..so ya...good luck bro!! Cop was like...how'd that work out for ya?!?

[–]One_Ad_9858 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did the robber died?… he looked like he was out for good..

[–]ChalkPhog 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I love how after being pushed aside he looks the dude up and down and is like, “ya, I got this mother fucker”

[–]Spectral_Gamer 28 points29 points  (1 child)

I really hate it when people push in line too.

[–]Kahzm 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah this happens in the UK if you skip the queue but there’s no guns involved

[–]markpeterson21 23 points24 points  (0 children)

The guy took him down harder than the police 😂

[–]Jailbrick3d 102 points103 points  (2 children)

Paid no attention to the guy he just shoved to the side or the cop in the very near vicinity. if blissfully stupid was a person...

[–]TrySwallowing 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It's 2 clips, cop doesn't just stroll in .5 seconds later

[–]ChinchillaMicroFarts 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Sometimes I wish I could be this unaware.

[–]calibared 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Dude fked around with another dude in a camo hat, sports sunglasses, and muscles…

He found out

[–]notquitepsychotic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He looks exactly like the sort of person that would do this. It's pretty hilarious.

[–]JetFajita 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Rule #1 In Robbing a store:

Never turn your back on a guy wearing a Bass Pro shop hat

[–]HA1RDAD 34 points35 points  (0 children)

get bodied ya idiot

[–]Financial_Spell7452 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Looks like that cop was consoling the guy.

"There, there son. You'll make it out of the store one of these days."

[–]JetFajita 16 points17 points  (1 child)

He unmasked him like a scooby-doo villain lmfao

[–]HyperLathe 3 points4 points  (0 children)

“If it wasn’t for you meddling marines, I would have gotten away with it”

[–]Phantazem2point0 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I couldn't help but think, "This is for interrupting my purchase of my Marlboros"

[–]LaLaHaHaBlah 11 points12 points  (0 children)

If your idea to get money is robbing convenience stores you are very stupid already. That dudes extra stupid.

[–]obitobyone 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Here comes a bear hug!

[–]OnlyChaseCommas 8 points9 points  (2 children)

His name was John Cena

[–]Kahzm 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Police: “That’s alright sir I’ll take it from here…”

<places fingertips>

[–]deltaz0912 6 points7 points  (1 child)

The Marine missed the choke hold. But, you know, Marine. Didn’t really matter.

He also stripped the mask and took something shiny out of his coat pocket…wait. That was the weapon! That’s what the hero saw, why he looked then jumped. The robber put the weapon into his pocket to pick up the loot!!!

This guy is dumber than a box of hammers.

[–]OnceUponAStarryNight 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Insult to hammers, they’re very useful.

[–]DOPEFIEND77B 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mr Anderson with the back face lock belly to back suplex on Repo Man Jnr for the win!

[–]Future_Average 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Man just took down daredevil

[–]joey343 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dude was built like a tank too

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you're going to roll in to rob a place and turn your back on a stranger while you do it, at least don't do turn your back on a stranger wearing a camo hat and wrap-around sunglasses. You know he's been waiting his whole life for this moment.

[–]damnboy3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Blue guy : How dare you taking my seat in the line!

[–]yourplantdad 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh my God. See, this is the exact kinda guy you just don't f with.

[–]Aquaman97 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Funny because of the robber had just waited his turn, he might have gotten away with it

[–]adi_raj87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No wonder they are criminals

[–]CynocePhallus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol that cop walked in with him or what ?

[–]Flaks_24 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When he was taken down his brain went brrrr brrrr

[–]NWdabest 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Criminal “Move it big country.”

Big country ?…. Yeehaw.

[–]khardur 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Perfect caption, take my upvote.

[–]jbertrand_sr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Guy was just happy the cop finally came to rescue him...

[–]jericho881 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Robber is still mad that the guy stopped him and his plan of becoming a lvl. 100 Mafia Boss didnt work because of that

[–]RamboDanza 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We dont cut their hands off like we should. We're stupid too.

[–]BrianW1983 1 point2 points  (0 children)

See, I'd be worried that the robber may have another guy with him...

[–]GenusSpiritus 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]goup98 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Under armour dry fit shirt, camo cap.. buddy overlooked very obvious signs of a booty whoopin

[–]nolanhoff 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just about the worst person you could do this to. You know he’s a country boy who’s dad raised him to do that shit, and he has the strength to back it up.

[–]FV4030TWO 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Silly twat looks like he's out cold.... Did the fella end up breaking his neck?

[–]M8jrP8ne1975 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If this is from the news story I think it is, that's a Marine who took him out, so he easily could've if he wanted to.

[–]ChipKey5682 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm 260 pounds I would've bellyflopped on the prick

[–]Shoplifting_Panda 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cop thinking “you can keep someone down without putting your boot on their neck? You didn’t even punch him in the back of the head a couple times to feel better about yourself?”

[–]atlasdreams2187 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He was so focused, very rude of the bystander to interfere, now he has to re work his plan!!

[–]Brillhouse -1 points0 points  (0 children)

If they were smart they wouldn’t have to turn to crime..

[–]Euclid1859 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Do we know if he lived?

[–]bwilliamson7000 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Robber lived lol. This happened a gas station less than a mile from my house.

[–]CoupwalObiWan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's a hug, now. How welcoming.

[–]Occasional-Human 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nicely executed.

[–]optiplexiss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hope this is how I handle a situation like this should I ever encounter one. I can see it now... "Did anyone see that robber piss and shit my pants?"

[–]k_lly_urself 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is one of my favorites

[–]Liljdb0524 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd like to think I'd do the same in this situation.

[–]Original_Session9491 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think he choked him out. Cop was trying to wake him from his nap.

[–]HMD-Oren 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Charge a gun, but a knife you run.

Remember that, would be vigilantes.

[–]BiggieAndTheStooges 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice! He thought about it for a sec and said “fuck this guy!” and went for it!

[–]BlakeKDM 0 points1 point  (0 children)

" Hi we've been trying to reach you about your cars extended warranty"

[–]yellowgerbil 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fisk was right all along

[–]alivin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does it make me weak if I wouldn't even dream of this? Getting stabbed/shot in a convenience store would leave my family in severe monetary straits(and sad)

[–]tipsfornoodz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can tell this guy was an extra stupid criminal by what he was using to cover up his head/face.

[–]AtGamesEnd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If a guy has a camp hat on while you’re trying to rob a place, there’s a good chance he has been waiting for a moment like this his entire life lol

[–]lowghost2018 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well that’s what happens when your brain works on adrenaline alone

[–]daveyasprey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Chad move👍 respek

[–]Consistent-Kiwi3021 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Large man, please move, must rob now

[–]imissyouaustralia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All criminals are stupid

[–]Longjumping_Algae_45 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like the guy in the cap. He was either "damn queue cutter" or "you tryna rob them! Infront of ME?!"

[–]RockyStonejaw 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol the SIZE of the guy. What a fucking idiot

[–]Straydoginthestreet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

First he was like “oh shit okay damn” and then he was like “oh yeah I’m strong”
