Watch: Siblings Furious Brother Was Shot During Armed Robbery, Blames The Victim For Having A Gun

You read that right. I don’t know if I should begin this with a trigger warning or not but just know that the chances you’re going to be outraged are pretty high. The siblings of a man who was shot while attempting to rob a shop at gunpoint are blaming the victim for their brother’s death because, according to them, the victim shouldn’t have been armed.

It all seems like the siblings think the brother has a God-given, American right, to rob the store? I don’t know but it all seems insane whatever their reasoning.

An employee at a Dayton Dollar General was held at gun-point by 23-year-old Roosevelt Rappley and responded by firing at Rappley. Unfortunately, the man did not survive the exchange but the family feels like Rappley is not fully to blame for what happened.

Rappley’s sister says “[W]rong is wrong. That was wrong for that clerk to shoot my brother in the chest…”She adds, “He’s got some responsibility, but not all!” 

This is the second sibling the two have lost in this manner and while the loss of any life is tragic, Rappley’s sister says it didn’t have to happen.

Rochelle appears to believe the store employee was being reprehensibly petty:

“Yes, he’s robbin’ y’all — oh WELL.”

She thinks a little bit of decorum was in order:

“Call the police. That’s what y’all are supposed to do.”

Cops say Roosevelt might’ve been involved in other robberies, too.

But Rochelle is indignant:

“Y’all are not supposed to take matters into y’all’s own hands. If that’s the case, I’ll take matters into my own hands.”

Watch:

Dollar General did not confirm or deny if employees were allowed to carry firearms, but did say that they have “a number of safety and security procedures.”

“To protect the integrity of these measures, we do not comment on them specifically,” said a statement issued by the company. “We are continuing to review the circumstance surrounding this evening’s events in Dayton, Ohio, and are cooperating with local authorities in their investigation.”

Because Dollar General is considered private property, the employee did not need a CCW, said Hall.

“As far the as the employee at Dollar General, he was legally possessing a weapon,” he said. “He was on private property at his place of employment.”

Dayton police said they are not releasing store surveillance video of the incident.

Sgt. Schloss said that Dollar General stores have been hit hard these last few months, but he wasn’t aware of an uptick in crime.

Police said that the Gettysburg store has been robbed four times this year and added that the man who died was suspect of other similar robberies.
