This dumbass should be sentenced another 40 years for attempting to sue. It's pretty sick that this country will even allow him to take this to court. He goes in intentionally with an automatic weapon, which means he would have killed given the chance, and HE'S the one that's suing? BAH! googleymoo! http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,198988,00.html entire story below Foiled Burglar Sues Store Employees for 'Emotional Distress' Sunday, June 11, 2006 ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A man who was beaten by employees of a store he was trying to rob is now suing. Police say Dana Buckman entered the AutoZone in Rochester, New York, last July, brandished a semi-automatic pistol and demanded cash. That's when employees Eli Crespo and Jerry Vega beat him with a pipe and held Buckman at bay with his own gun. Buckman escaped when they retreated into the store to call 911, but he was arrested a week later. He pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and was sentenced to 18 years in prison as a repeat violent felon. Now Buckman is suing the auto parts store and the two employees who beat him, claiming they committed assault and battery and intentionally inflicted emotional distress.
