Two robberies with two very different endings

Robbery #1 - Victim is disarmed, the way Obama wants Americans to be

(05-15) 11:19 PDT Gardena, CA (AP) --

A videotape of a store owner pleading for her life as she is shot repeatedly by a masked gunman was released by authorities who say they have no leads in the killing.

A surveillance camera recorded the murder of Hae Sook Roh, 51, of Harbor City. She was gunned down in her T-shirt store around 6:45 p.m. Monday by a man who got away with only a small amount of cash, authorities said Thursday.

The security video showed a left-handed man with a bandanna over his face running into the store, demanding money, shooting the woman and rifling the cash register, authorities said. He paused to fire twice more at the screaming woman on the floor before fleeing.

She was shot three times in the torso and died at a hospital.

"The video shows her pleading for her life and in pain and the suspect didn't care. He had no regard for life," sheriff's Deputy Ed Hernandez said.

"You can see pretty much in the video, she pretty much put her hands up and backed up," sheriff's Lt. Dave Coleman said. "This is just ruthless. It was unprovoked and ruthless. She didn't do anything."

The gunman and an accomplice were seen running from the store, authorities said.

"We're still trying to get somebody to identify these guys. Detectives are working around the clock to get any leads but we have nothing yet," Hernandez said.

The city has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to their arrest and conviction.

Robbery #2 - Victim is armed, the way the US Constitution says Americans have the right to be

Two gunmen walk into a liquor store, one customer with a gun is already inside. Things go bad. The customers, the employees end up shaken. One bad gun runs away, the other was not so lucky.

The best part is the interview with the police officer. Watch the video:
