Latest Contraception News: Man Shot and Killed in Dispute Over Price of Condoms

Posted by on Mar 11, 2012 at 7:55 pm

Maybe these activist “students” have a point about the cost of contraception. Now we have people dying over the price of condoms.

A man was shot and killed Friday night after an apparent dispute over the price of condoms at a Detroit gas station.

WWJ’s Beth Fisher spoke to an employee at the BP gas station on Fenkell and Meyers, where the shooting took place on the city’s westside overnight. The employee said the argument was apparently over the price of a box of condoms.

He said the customer bought a box of condoms, but made a comment that he was overcharged and could have bought them somewhere else for a cheaper price. After being told he couldn’t get a refund, the customer allegedly began tossing items off the shelves. That’s when, according to the employee, the overnight clerk came out with a gun and fired a warning shot, which struck the customer in the shoulder.

Police say the customer was taken to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.

This could cause a lot of confusion for Democrats. What should they focus on, the cost of condoms or gun control?

    I am all pro-gun, but the clerk here was completely in the wrong in this case baused off what is reported. You don’t shoot a man in the shoulder for knocking stuff over, you call the cops. Now if the customer had pulled out a gun or other weapon, then I would have given credit to the clerk for defending himself. You also fire a warning shot STAIGHT INTO THE AIR and not at the person, but the clerk was not even justified to fire a warning shot.
