Military Veteran Turns Tables on Would-Be Robber

A robber in Florida thought he had picked an easy target when he held up a gas station clerk for some easy cash. What the robber did not know was that the man who was cooperating at gunpoint was a war veteran.

Proving once again that criminals are not smart.

The veteran David Dick, remained calm and did not let the situation get the best of him.

David Dick, who had been on multiple dangerous tours of duty in Iraq, was only waiting for the right opportunity and when he sensed an opening, he pounced.

With his training and experience it was only a matter of time before this veteran got his window of opportunity.

Watch the security footage as Dick rains heavy military-grade blows at the would-be robber, leaving him empty handed scurrying for the safety of his getaway car.
