This story will recalibrate your cold-blooded-bastard-o-meter. Because the ‘kids’ in this story take us to new lows.
First, two boys were busted shoplifting by the guy behind the counter. As far as convenience stores go, that’s a tale as old as time.
What happened next ISN’T ‘more of the usual’.
After being spotted grabbing and eating pepperoni sticks without paying, they were approached by the clerk.
Before he could get to them, however, he collapsed into a display of water bottles.
He never got up. It was a 911 emergency situation where the man’s life was in danger. What would a reasonable person do in that situation? Call for help. What did THESE kids do? Well, not that.

That’s right, the little opportunists used that opportunity to rob the store blind, empty the cash register, take what they could carry, and come back for more.
Charming lads, aren’t they?
And did I happen to mention that they stepped OVER the body of the clerk several times in the process?
“While the clerk is on the ground unconscious, the two teenage males exit and enter the store a couple of times stealing merchandise and taking all the money from the cash register,” police said, Q13 Fox reports. “While the clerk was on the ground dying, neither of the three subjects who saw him fall to the ground called for help.”
Store manager Angela Sharapova said it was hard to even bring herself to watch the disturbing surveillance footage. “It just breaks our hearts,” she said. “Now this guy is fighting for his life. He has three little children. He has a stay-at-home wife. We just pray to God that he makes it.”
The teens took $178 from the register, said Sharapova, as Kelada was “on the floor in agony.”
They literally left him for dead.
Was his life worth $178 bucks and a couple of pepperoni sticks?
They didn’t even have the decency to dial 911 and leave the line open.
At the time of writing, we still don’t know whether the man will live or die.
