Waiters Kill Robber in Japanese Restaurant in Paris

 

A group of waiters in a restaurant resisted a robbery using kitchen knives against two robbers. The two robbers, both 22, burst into a busy Japanese restaurant in Paris. Pointing a stun gun at a waiter, they demanded cash from the till. Afterward they tried to escape.

Outside the restaurant, one of the robbers was stabbed by a waiter and the other was wrestled to the ground. The stabbed robber died while he was en route to the hospital.

The surviving robber and the Japanese staff are now in police custody.

I love your contributions, and your effort to strengthen your language skills but this and your other summary from today seem really rushed and are just full of grammatical errors.

  I think...  
 
The waiters should be given medals from the cops and bonuses from their job.
This was above and beyond their normal duties and they should be shown appreciation.

I'm not really seeing a problem. I mean there's the comma in the 3rd sentence and I think it's "police custody" and not "police's custody" but other than that I think it's about right.

I've seen worse. Hell, I've written worse.

Ah.

  way to go!  
 
Half of me wants to applaud the waiters, but the punishment didn't fit the crime. At the same time, way to stick it to them! I'm sure he meant to subdue more than kill anyways. Good job staff, I hope you get off without a charge.

  Well they were threatend..  
 
a similar incident happened back in Cwmbran Wales in a Chinese restaurant, this time it was the chief he scared the life out of two thieves, he lost the plot and sacred the whole restaurant, funny that place was never bothered again until this day. Maybe it was his huge knife and angry face that did it, but thieves know that place is no push over.

I have had my share of stories that had gotten hard to follow from vizhatlan, but this was not one of them. Good job Viz.

As for the story, I see nothing good that has come out of this..even if one of the robbers paid the ultimate price. The only changes that will happen is that 1)The robbers will be more dangerously armed and 2) employees will be more weary to fight them off.

  Dem knives  
 
Killing some one with a knife is very harsh for robbery with non lethal weapons.

I admire the waiters but they are in for some serious trouble with the law.

  Lesson learned..  
 
don't mess with restaurant workers who are experts in knives.. mostly Asians. Ginzu knives they slice and dice. Hopefully the waiter won't get jailed since he wasn't the instigator.

Thanks for your opinion, yes really it is, somehow I was not in good form, I can only hope it will be better an better.

As for the story, in my opinion is the waiters will be freed, they did what it was needed for self-defence.

I didn't read the source, but it would seem the waiters weren't being attacked nor threatened by the time they caught up to the robbers. Killing a fleeing felon is always looked at with suspicion as they are no longer a threat. IMHO

Timing is everything it would appear.

  Hmmmm  
 
If the perps were running away then that would make sense but it's also human nature to go after someone who robs you in the heat of anger. If they didn't rob the place in the first place then this wouldn't have happened. Have to deal with the consequence of your own actions. The robbers didn't expect them to be followed.
