Dying for some food

In Rhode Island, a guy and his buddy decided they were hungry, and hit the local supermarket. And I mean that literally.

James Wilcox took his friend and his five-year-old daughter with him to the local Stop & Shop and loaded up on groceries, then left — skipping the key “pay for them” step. When he went to flee, a police officer tried to stop him. After being hit by Wilcox with a minivan, the officer shot him. Wilcox was DOA at the hospital.

What. An. Idiot.

Now there’s a five-year-old girl who will grow up with the memory of watching Daddy be shot and killed right in front of her because he put a load of groceries above her safety and the life of a police officer.

I’d say “good riddance,” but why do these morons always manage to off themselves in such a way as to leave a huge mess for others to clean up?

Update: Radio reports say the purloined merchandise was baby formula. I am probably mistaken, but isn’t that used in some drug manufacturing process?
