Teens in Muslim burkas try to rob Delco gun shop
Quote:Teens in Muslim burkas try to rob Delco gun shop

Most teenagers do dumb things. But not trying-to-rob-Joe-Galiano dumb.

Who is Joe Galiano? He's the owner of Suburban Armory, the gun shop on MacDade Boulevard in Collingdale Borough, Delaware County. He is surrounded by guns, including the one on his hip. Like his .45-caliber pistol. Can't miss it.

Despite this fact, police say two teenagers dressed in burkas walked into his store this afternoon, pulled a gun on Galiano and tried to stick him up. Galiano, less than thrilled about having a man in female Muslim garb pointing a silver handgun at him inside his own store, decided not to comply, but instead to make use of his own gun.

"It doesn't make any sense," Chief Robert Adams said of the attempted robbery. "He carries a gun and it's right out there in the open."

Cops say Galiano fired one shot at the teens, ages 15 and 17. Neither was struck, but they apparently saw the error of their ways and fled the store. One hopped onto a SEPTA bus and tried unsuccessfully to hide in the back, the other was apprehended behind a trolley stop. Muslim clothing and other evidence was found between the scene and the trolley stop, police said.

The teens' parents are at the police station right now, Adams said. He is not releasing their identities at this point because they are juveniles. Charges pending include robbery, possession of an instrument of crime and drug possession.

I'm sure those teens learned their lessons and will never break the law again.... Rolleyes

Interesting, I hope that the charges also include firearms charges. Of course, I expect that they'll plead and many of the charges will be dropped or nolle prosse.
They'll both be back in school by next week.
The law? The law is a human institution...
I wonder if that was a "warning shot" or if it was just plain a bad shot.

Regardless, glad it turned out okay for the shop owner. Geez, idiot kids. Idiot parents, really.
Error 396: Signature cannot be found.
But, But they didn't just target him first, since he was Open Carry?

Why did he miss? Or was the gun that they had fake and he knew it, and just wanted to scare them?

My guess? His .45 is defective, cause they should have been killed by the concussive force as the bullet passed them.
Oh well, there's always next time.
Dude, robbers dressed in hajibs and burkas is an old Philly tradition. They also make for EXCELLENT shoplifting outfits in department stores.


Yet more evidence of the exodus of the criminal classes out of Philadelphia.
Also... isn't Collingdale where they just had that huge heroin/meth bust a while back?

That particular burb is toast.
