Is losing $1,000 a great thing to have happen to you? Not at all. Not one bit, but it could have been a lot worse.

I’d rather be safe, healthy and down $1,000 than possibly hurt or killed in the course of a robbery. It sounds like Williams made the smart decision here.

I know there are a lot of wanna-be badasses on the internet, but trying to “high noon” it with criminals isn’t always a great idea.

If you think they’re just there for your cash, hand it over and let the police deal with it. Are you really going to risk your life over $1,000?

Didn’t think so.

It’s an unfortunate situation, and I hope the responsible parties are found. As for Williams, he sounds like he made it out okay.
