Poor prior planning leads to… well, not a good performance (that is not really the complete saying, but we will keep it G-rated!). This is an old army saying my dad used to say all the time when I was growing up.
The would-be robber in this story clearly never heard that saying.
He and a friend showed up to rob someone with a fake gun and a stick. One assailant wore a mask and came up to a 67-year-old man in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania.
The robber was reportedly in his late teens, or early twenties then held a pellet gun up and pointed it in the older man’s face. The gunman’s friend stood nearby with his stick. There was a brief physical altercation between the gunman and the older man.
The victim then pulled out a real gun – and shot the attacker straight in the head. He died on scene.
