Moron Tries To Rob Store – Marine Takes Him Down To Paintown!

Written by K. Walker on August 9, 2017

This bro decides it’s worth a shot to rob a store even though there’s a REALLY big guy right next to him. It didn’t go so well.

What. An. Idoit.

That big guy that the would-be robber shoved aside? Well, turns out his name is Daniel Gaskey, and he’s a Marine veteran and a firefighter.

Not a guy anyone sane would want to mess with.

A firefighter and former Marine by the name of Daniel Gaskey, 30, took down an armed robber with his bare hands in a convenience store on June 26, and it was all caught on tape. The attempted robbery took place in the early morning at the Exxon Oasis Food Store in Midlothian, Texas…

“My initial thought is ‘Why are you touching me? Why are you pushing me out of the way?’” recounted Gaskey, who served as an intelligence Marine from 2003–2011, and deployed to Iraq for nine months in 2005 with 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment.

“I took a step away to see what’s going on,” continued Gaskey, who said that Bearden then brandished a fix-blade knife and told the cashier: “This will go quick and easy, I’m just here for the money.”

The robber, 19-year old Dylan Bearden, completely ignored Gaskey and that was his mistake. The former Marine waited until the cashier was far enough away to not get hit by a stray swing with the knife Bearden was brandishing.

He takes down Bearden and then holds him until police arrive.


Gaskey was a hero. But that looks like it’s in his nature.

“I’ve always had a protective nature. I’ve always been someone who was willing to stand up for what’s right, and that’s what took me into the Marine Corps,” Gaskey said, when asked what led him to not one, but two careers in public service. “Coming out of the Marine Corps, I didn’t see myself doing an [office job] for the rest of my life, and I knew I’d either be a cop or a firefighter.”

How very different from Beardan that was willing to threaten a cashier with a knife to get what’s in the register.

That get-rich quick scheme didn’t work out so well, now, did it?

Maybe somebody should’ve told this guy that crime doesn’t pay.

Enjoy prison, a-hole.
