Unlucky thief picks the wrong convenience store to rip off, is walloped by 7-Eleven workers

An emboldened crook pushed his luck too far when his brazen thievery resulted in a well-deserved beating by workers that was caught on video which has since gone viral.

The incident went down at a 7-Eleven convenience store where a bystander recorded the attempted ripoff as it was taking place with a masked man seen loading up a wheeled trashcan with tobacco products as he is shouted at by employees, one who asks “Hey, why are you stealing everything?”

As the thief responds with a threat to “pull my strap on your b**** ass,” another voice is heard saying, “there’s nothing you can do” and to wait for the police.

The cigarette thief is then confronted by a man who intervenes by grabbing him and wrestling him to the floor as a second employee who is wearing a Sikh turban charges into the scene with a large wooden stick and proceeds to rain blows down upon the hapless perp who suddenly realized that he picked the wrong convenience store.

The worker in the turban brings the stick down nearly two dozen times as the would-be thief screams in pain as his punishment is delivered.

“That’s called whoopin’ your a***,” the customer recording the video said.

The exact location of the 7-Eleven or time of the beatdown isn’t clear but it has been reported to have been in Stockton, California, a city in the northern part of the state close to San Francisco and Sacramento.

Twitter/X users cheered the reaction to the thievery, the latest example of citizens who are sick of crime taking matters into their own hands.

While the incident had a happy ending, many more do not as large areas of the nation have been plagued by crime, particularly those that are under Democrat control where thugs understand that the police have been handcuffed by left-wing politicians that coddle criminals and are hostile to law enforcement.
