The mother of a dead thug who tried to commit an armed robbery in Texas is speaking out against the victim who she claims didn’t have to shoot her son five times. Now, the story is going viral after the dead punk’s mom got a brutal response from a Texas cop.
According to Blue Lives Matter, the mother of 19-year-old Andrew Herrera is questioning why the victim of an attempted robbery in San Antonio, Texas shot her son five times instead of just once. The shocking botched robbery which took place at approximately 9 p.m. on Wednesday, December 6, 2017, left the community in shock and Herrera dead as a doornail.
The Popeyes Chicken on South Flores Street where Herrera had tried to commit an armed robbery was full of customers which included a father who was carrying a legally permitted firearm, according to local news source KSAT. Police said that Herrera entered the restaurant wearing a hoodie and a mask and carrying a gun. As he walked up to the victim and his family, identified by police as 32-year-old Carlos Molina, he demanded money and pointed his gun at their faces.
Molina reacted like any protective and loving father would react to a thug pointing a gun at his children’s faces. He first tried to calmly talk the gunman out of the situation by saying he didn’t have any money on him and asked politely if his family could leave the restaurant. As most of Molina’s family got up to leave, two of his children walked out of the restroom and Herrera immediately pointed his gun at them. This is when police said that Molina took out the trash.
Carlos Molina drew his firearm and shot Andrew Herrera five times. Herrera was declared dead a short time later as a result of acute lead poisoning. Now, Cynthia Ruiz, Herrera’s mother, said that she understands that Molina just wanted to protect his family, but she questioned whether shooting him five times was necessary. Ruiz is now demanding to see the surveillance video. It appears that this colossal failure of a mother is looking for a payday after her thug son’s death.
“Why shoot him four more times? Why did he shoot him five times?” she asked. Clearly, Ruiz has never been sitting in a restaurant when an armed thug walked in and threatened her and her family with a gun. Molina feared for his life and the lives of his family. Herrera had made an extremely bad mistake by pointing a gun at Molina’s kids and paid for it. A police spokesman had the perfect response to Ruiz’s stupid question:
“Here in Texas, if you’re in fear of loss of life, loss of property, you have a right to defend yourself.”
I could not agree more with the San Antonio police. Andrew Herrera forfeited his own life the moment he made the decision to commit an armed robbery. Cynthia Ruiz went on to say that she was told her son’s gun was not loaded. Ruiz claims that the getaway driver, identified by police at Trevor Atkinson, gave her that information.
First of all, who cares. I would politely say to Mrs. Ruiz that her son was a piece of trash and she is partly to blame for his brief criminal career and early demise. If a thug points a gun at a man and his family, there is no need to ask if the gun is loaded. At that point, the thug’s intentions are crystal clear and Molina acted appropriately.
Trevor Atkinson was arrested on Friday, December 8, 2017, and charged with aggravated robbery. The two thugs were believed to have committed numerous other robberies, according to the San Antonio Police Department.
Why are people like Cynthia Ruiz shocked when a violent thug, such as her son, meets a violent end? He deserved all five bullets and the then some. Ruiz should get out of the public eye and go somewhere to develop a conscience and some personal accountability.
