Robber sues Good Samaritan for subduing him

| September 20, 2017 | 45 Comments

NavyEODguy sends us a link to the story of Pamela Chimienti, the mother of Ryan Flores who tried to stick up a Starbucks in Fresno, California with a knife. His plan was disrupted by Cregg Jerri, 58, who disarmed Flores and stabbed him 17 times with Flores’ own knife. Now, Chimienti is attempting to sue Jerri because he used “excessive force” on her son;

“The guy, in my opinion, went from a Good Samaritan to a vigilante,” Pamela Chimienti, Flores’ mother, told KSEE-TV. “Stabbing somebody that many times, it doesn’t take that many stab wounds to get somebody to succumb to you.”

Mark Flores, the man’s father, told the Fresno Bee: “I understand he (his son) robbed the store but (Jerri) stabbed my son 17 times.”

The Fresno police chief reportedly called the report of the lawsuit “ludicrous.”

Flores is currently serving his time in the hoosegow.

    Butthurt reactions, to include refusing to see the contributions of their own failures as parents to what ultimately happened. The good Samaritan was 58 years old. The idiot was 30 years old. With some exceptions, chances are that the 30 year old is going to be a lot stronger than the 58 year old, who got stabbed in the neck. The 58 year old has to compensate for that potential difference.

    The video shows that, as soon as the fight got underway, the older man was vulnerable. He had the advantage of weight and of having been around the block longer than the idiot. The Idiot is proving to be hard to subdue, the man had to keep stabbing until the idiot quit.

    The parents should know better. Back in the ’70s and ’80s, we were warned that if we did stupid things like this, we were bound to get hurt or killed. Something like this should’ve emphasized that point.

    He’s 30 fukking years old….why is his mommy suing? Cut the damn cord already.

    The prosecuter is actually taking the case? WTF?

  3. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    He stabbed him until the little fucker stopped wiggling…that’s good knife hand work in my opinion…

    Don’t want to get stabbed? Don’t pull out a knife that someone can take and use against you.

    This is why you need the self defense insurance offered by USCCA
    It covers all weapons used in self defense
    It also provides a legal defense against this kind of lawsuit
    What does it cost to hire a lawyer to defend against this suit?
    I am guessing the retainer might be 5 or 10 thousand dollars?
    The $400 per year for the self defense insurance seems worth the money

  5. akpual says:

    Are you even allowed to take a knife into Starbucks?

  6. Crime Stoppers says:

    It’s real simple.. You commit a crime, you have no rights. The good Samaritan was 58 and the robber was in his 30s. Just be glad that the good Samaritan wasn’t carrying. I’m sure he would have emptied the magazine

  7. bg2 says:

    Variations on this theme all over our society…wimp-ass parents who’ve done a lousy job raising their kids making excuses for their bad behavior years later. Who will discipline the parents (-sigh-).

  8. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    That shit is about as sensible as when some goblin’s parents screeched that a Homeowner “had an unfair advantage ” over the goblin they raised by using an AR-15 against their little shit when he broke into their house. Any Prosecutor who would take that case is absolutely Bernathian!

  9. AW1Ed says:

    I would bet the majority of wounds were on the perp’s hands and forearms- defensive in nature. A lot fewer than 17 wounds to blood bearing organs would leave a corpse.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

  10. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Ok I stand corrected, a lawsuit has been filed against the Samaritan and IMHO any Judge that doesn’t dismiss something like that with prejudice is absolutely Bernathian!

  11. SFC D says:

    I need to find the tavern this guy frequents, we need to do some serious consumption. You guys coming?

    A younger brother of mine has been in and out of prison his entire life. Mom, up until her death, continued to support him financially.

    Amazing.

  13. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    This happened in California so Cregg may be found guilty of excessive force by the liberal court system.

  14. David says:

    Ad with a shooting – you don’t shoot him till you think he’s done, you shoot him till HE thinks he’s done. If you have a knife, same principle applies: until the other guys quits and sincerely gives up, he’s still an active threat and needs some more openin’ up.

  15. Roger in Republic says:

    The fact that the goblin is recovering in the hospital shows that the samaritan used more restraint that I would have used. I think cutting his heart out and feeding it it to him is a reasonable outcome for his crime.

  16. MSG Eric says:

    “He was a good boy! He never hurt nobody!

  17. OldManchu says:

    … use deadly force until it stops.

  18. Yef says:

    17 stab wounds?

    Somebody need more training.
    There 3 principles to a knife fight:
    1) Dominant hand
    2) Thrusting stabs
    3) Center mass

    It ain’t rocket science.

      4) Repeat as needed

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      You can inflict a bunch of stab wounds before the other guy bleeds out enough to stop fighting. If most of them are non-lethal (shallow or missing major vessels or organs, non torso, etc), the count can go way up. If most of them were actually -cuts- on limbs, then the number can go way up before someone bleeds out.

      Especially if the knife-wielder is desperate and motivated.

    Didndu Nuffin Mama should be glad Basement Boy is still alive.

    Any lawer that Good Samaritan hires should be paid on condition of successful countersuit against Didndu Nuffin Mama for mental anguish, pain and suffering, loss of income, loss of employment, lawer and court costs.
    Smack her so hard that both her parents AND children will feel it.

    Coffee–ya want good coffee? Check out Old Bisbee Roasters. They’re vet friendly,fresh roasted, independent, ship free and they ain’t starbux.

  21. jonp says:

    If he stabbed that asshat 17 times and the guy lived to serve a sentence on our dime someone needs a few classes in stabby shit

  22. 11 Bravo says:

    Learning where and how to stabb someone should be taught at home.
    Then we would have less stabb wounds, and a corpse instead of a complaining, whiney, ru ny nose POS.
    I rest my case.

  23. Deplorable B Woodman says:

    “But, but, he’z a GOOD boy, he wuz jus’ turnin’ hiz life aroun’. He’z on a kollege scholor ship, wif money for skool an’ everythin’.”

  24. Jacob Thomas says:

    The mom is the reason this (kid) is the way he is and robbing stores. She was one of those parents who told there kids they never did anything wrong and the other people were at fault so the son basically started to notice he can do whatever he wants and the mom will blame everyone else. This man who jumped in to help is being blamed from the mom is absolutely ridiculous and the mom needs to take her mom blinders off and thank this man for showing this kid right and wrong.
