Desperate times call for desperate measures. That pretty much sums up the attitude of this man caught on video reluctantly robbing a convenience store. He pays for his coffee and says “please” and “thank you” and “sir” and “I’m sorry” as he robs the clerk at gunpoint. It’s a heartbreaking scene—he truly does seem like he’s out of options, and explains he has to pay his rent and feed his kids. “If I ever get back on my feet again, sir, I’ll bring it back,” he says. The clerk, as stunned as he is, seems as empathetic as you might feel watching it.
