A shocking story has emerged out of San Antonio, Texas, where an armed thug thought it would be a good idea to rob a family who was having dinner together at a fast food restaurant. Now, the story has gone viral on social media after the fed-up dad at the table gave the punk a brutal dose of Texas justice.
According to local news source Fox29, the attempted armed robbery took place at approximately 9 p.m. at Popeyes Chicken on Southeast Military Drive near South Flores Street. Officers from the San Antonio Police Department responded to an emergency at the restaurant after 19-year-old Andres Herrera pointed a gun at a family inside.
Police said that 32-year-old Carlos Molina, who is a concealed carry permit holder, was eating dinner with his family when Herrera walked in and pointed a gun at him and demanded money. According to the River Valley Leader, Molina told the gunman that he didn’t have any money to give him and asked if his family could leave the restaurant peacefully.
This is when the thug turned toward the counter, pointed the gun and yelled at the manager to stop running. It was at this moment that Molina’s family began to scurry out of the restaurant. Two more family members walked out of the restroom, and Herrera immediately pointed the gun at them. That the moment the fed-up dad had enough. Molina pulled his legally owned and carried firearm and opened fire on the punk.
When police arrived, Herrera was laying on the ground in a pool of his own blood. He was declared dead a short time later as a result of his own criminal behavior. Of course, the mainstream media would have you believe that the suspect is the victim in this situation. They will post his baby pictures and interview his family so they can tell us all what a good boy Herrera was and how he would never have really shot anyone. My response to the narrative pushed by the liberal media is, “Thank goodness innocent people didn’t wait to find out and that thug is dead instead of them.”
Police said they believe Molina shot in defense of a third person out of fear for their life. They are absolutely correct, and Molina deserves an award for putting this punk out of his misery. Anyone who thinks it’s ok to walk into a restaurant and rob an innocent family at gunpoint deserves exactly what Molina got — a coffin.
Far too often, thugs like Herrera are arrested and taken to prison, where they continue to live like parasites on the taxpayer’s dime. Thank goodness, this violent degenerate won’t be around anymore to leach off of society. Molina, on the other hand, is a hero, and he truly understands that his safety and the safety of his family are primarily his own responsibility.
There are so many cases like this every week in our country, where the suspect hurts or murders the victim and gets away with it. If Molina had not decided to act, it may very well be his own family shopping for a coffin and a cemetery plot instead of Herrera’s.
Once again, the 2nd Amendment pulls its own weight. A San Antonio man, his wife, and two children are safe and will enjoy this Christmas holiday together because of the father’s decision to legally carry a firearm and use it when necessary. In my opinion, Molina did the right thing by shooting with the intent to kill this thug. He did not give Herrera the opportunity to return fire and kill one of his family members or himself.
