Suspect In Starbucks Robbery May Sue Good Samaritan Who Stopped Him

Submitted by: Draculya 3 weeks ago in News & Politics


His claim? The Good Samaritan stabbed him 'too many' times with his own knife.

A 30-year-old man who allegedly used a gun during an attempted robbery at a California Starbucks now plans to sue the good Samaritan who stepped in to stop the crime, according to local reports.

Back in July, Ryan Flores attempted to rob a Starbucks when Cregg Jerri, 58, attacked him. Surveillance video from the scene shows the suspect wearing a Transformers mask and threatening a barista. Seconds later, Jerri picked up a metal chair and hit the suspect in the back.

During the altercation, Flores stabbed Jerri in the neck. Jerri eventually wrestled the knife away from Flores and stabbed the suspect multiple times, according to police.

While police called Jerri a "hero," the suspect's mother said her son is a victim, the Fresno Bee reported.

"He has 17 total stab wounds, lacerations, and defensive wounds," Pamela Chimienti told local TV station KSEE.

What's Ryan Flores claim? Cregg Jerri stabbed him 'too many' times with his own knife.

Sadly, there is precedent for this type of case to win. Our "society" is fucked.

The Good Samaritan made two basic mistakes one he used a chair when there was a much better stool right there, and the second he did not stab him enough.

Oh, he's a victim alright: this is what happens when your father refers to your mother as "Sis"

Pro tip: Dead people can't sue. Don't stop stabbing criminal until he lays down and becomes a good criminal.

daegog Maybe you should consider the difference between a murdering criminal and a victim who was defending himself.

The two are not equatable.

He hits him with a 3 pound chair? Fuck that. I'm picking up the twenty pound table.

The world would be a much better place with more people like that old guy and a low fewer of that scumbag robber.
I'm betting every little nick and scratch was included in that 17 count.

That's a shame, i really hope the judge throws this one out.

I dunno if you CAN stab someone too many times, it can be incredibly hard to kill someone with a knife if you are not trained to go for kill shots.

if it was say 571 stab wounds, then ok MAYBE he would have a lawsuit (if he were somehow still alive)

Should have had a gun instead of a knife.

marsii He had both, the robber did. The other guy was unarmed, he used a table and then took the thugs knife away from him after being stabbed in the neck with it.

marsii he brought a gun, but lucky for him it was fake. Next time he should go armed with a bottle of baby oil because the worst he'd get is an over enthusiasic handie.

Well sure, guy is just trying to make an honest living robbing Starbucks and some jerk hits him with a chair, then he tries to defend his right work and the same jerk takes his favorite knife away and stabs him with it?

if it was cops that encountered this the guy would be dead, the fucktard with an Optimus prime helmet should be thanking him for not slicing his throat open. The bystander deserves a medal imo
