Guns are for pussies

How machete-wielding bodega owner took slice outta crime

BY PETER KADUSHIN and MICHAEL WHITE - DAILY NEWS WRITERS
Saturday, November 10th 2007


The armed robber who burst into a Queens bodega with his gun blazing wound up begging for his life after the deli owner hacked him with a machete.


The armed robber who burst into a Queens bodega leaves scene slashed and on a stretcher Wednesday night.

"He whipped out his gun. I whipped out my machete, and we went to war," said Joan Marte, 46, the owner of Erick Grocery in Woodhaven. "When I hit him with the machete, he said, 'Please don't kill me.'"

When it was over, the suspect, Omar Rodriguez, 27, of Brooklyn, was missing a finger and part of an ear. Instead of demanding cash, the robber was asking the grocer to call 911, Marte said.

An ambulance took Rodriguez to Jamaica Hospital. Now he's facing attempted murder, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon charges. Rodriguez fired two shots from a semiautomatic pistol, which was recovered, cops said.

Marte, who immigrated from the Dominican Republic about 23 years ago and saved to buy the deli last year, was not injured.

Police do not believe Marte, a married father of four, will be charged with a crime.

Although neighbors outside the store yesterday hailed him as a hero, Marte said he was only trying to protect himself and his livelihood.

"It isn't worth it to kill a robber," he said. "I'm not an assassin, or a killer."

Hmmm...

Some enterprising shyster is probably going to sue the store owner for the suspect's injuries. Under the store's comprehensive insurance policy, the insurance company will be required to defend the suit. Since it is easier and cheaper than litigating, they will settle 'for an undisclosed sum.'

The shyster will 'earn' a nice chunk of change.
The poor, misunderstood suspect will leave prison with a tidy sum in the bank (after taxes). The shop owner will have his policy canceled for 'causing' the loss to the insurance company and the next company will provide half the previous coverage he enjoyed for 3 or 4 times the premium.
And the criminal, seeing how crime pays, albeit painfully, will become a fruitful member of society seeking other he can...


SUE!!

That scenario does not sound like it would be in the best long-term interests of underwriters. Are you sure your cynicism is not running away with you?

I actually don't think it is particularly off the mark at all. Laws in the USA are set up to allow exactly that kind of thing, whether or not "legislative intent" can be found in the laws which encouraged it in the first place.

The underwriters seek to maximize profit by minimising risk exposure while receiving the highest policy payment premiums that they can get
