    WTF does a "robbery gone wrong" mean?

    Bad guy tries to rob (at gunpoint) two people sitting in a car. A struggle ensues, and the victim takes the bad guy's gun and shoots him with it (dead).

    I find the headline rather curious. A "robbery gone wrong" is a phrase I've seen many times before and never understood. First, it implies that a robbery (a crime) can also go "right." Morally, that's self-contradictory.

    However, if I was to imagine any way a robbery could "go right," it would be when the victims turn the table on the perpetrator as happened in this case.

    Robbery gone wrong ends in shooting

    The wrong part?
    The robber was disarmed and then shot.

    A robbery gone right, might be the most recent Dollar General altercation.

    Huh? I'd say both went "right."

    In libtard land it’s wrong for someone to defend themselves with violence against a violent criminal.

    That poor criminal is only trying to make a living, and it’s simply unfair that his/her victims have more than them.

    So in the libtard media’s mind it’s, “a robbery gone wrong.”

    This makes no sense to rational thinking people, and why headlines like that make one take pause.

    Of course, I agree with racer. The headline is curious at best and morally self contradictory. Such is the sad state of journalism these days! In my mind, a robbery gone bad is one where the robber succeeds in robbing his/her victim(s). A robbery gone right is a robbery thwarted and if it's an armed robbery, the armed robber gets shot for being a threat of grievous bodily harm or death to his or her victim(s). If they end up taking a dirt nap after getting shot, they chose to be a violent criminal and "live by the sword, did by the sword."

    In the progressive view you should submit to any felony, rape, robbery ,car jacking, ect. In my view the perp catches a 45 caliber fast education.

    That pic has been debunked many times.

    On the topic this is how the liberals write things now because they are all too happy to report when a robbery ‘goes right’ and an innocent victim dies or gets shot.
    Used to be ‘criminal shot while trying to commit a robbery’ but no more.
    The news actually roots for the criminals and is upset when things go wrong for the poor poor bad guy

    what a wonderful opportunity to argue pure semantics when one knows exactly what "gone bad" means...
