The man came into the store and bought a Swisher Sweets cigar, which totaled $1.41. When the man only handed over $1, saying it was all he had, he then punched the clerk who demanded he pay the rest of the amount.

She should have cut a 2/3's chunk off and gave it to him.

I'm sure that there was a government program, somewhere, that could have provided him the needed assistance. or he could have just pawned his Obamaphone.

This petty violence is a symptom of failed parenting - the man was not raised up properly.

This is just one reason why many stores have the clerks enclosed with plastic/glass shields. I wonder what the people in line did to assist this clerk.

Some people are vicious, violent, rabid animals.
I suggest a $50 bounty on their heads with a continuously open season until they become extinct.

(Me, Me, Me, syndrome)
There is too many people in society that think they are entitled to do what ever they want; an all too sad commentary on the state of society today!
For those calling for use of weapons and deadly force in defence, is also more then overkill. There is far too much anger in society at present.

For those wanting to know why it's not about gas prices; the category is the "Daily News Article Discussions".

The clerk should get firearms training and a firearm with her at work. She needs to defend herself, the store and the customers. I hope they catch that fool and throw him in jail for 41 years. And if he attempts to do that again to someone else, I hope that someone else has BIGTIME means to defend themselves and teach the fool a lesson.

Saw this on the news. He did not want to pay $1.41 for his cigar. The clerk did not deserve to be hit. Hope he gets put in jail & has to pay restitution to her.

And did everyone notice in the picture a line of people that stood there and did nothing?

What if the assault was worse? There have been cases where some people have been crippled or died just because of one lucky punch.

If this guy has this reaction to $.41 cents, imagine what he must be doing to other people on the streets.

I, too, agree with reidlej.

And I hope that being convicted of battery prevents this criminal from obtaining a handgun license. At least for a few years.
