Two men at a gas station started a gunfight on Aug. 21. WSB-TV out of Atlanta reports one man got out of his car, and the second man approached him with a gun in his waistband. The first man walked back to his car and grabbed an AK-style pistol. An extreme gun battle ensued, and unfortunately, a woman was caught in the crossfire and was shot in her shoulder. One of the gunmen stayed with her to call 911 while the other ran off.
We've seen so many violent crimes go uninterrupted here at RightThisMinute that the miraculous response time of the Brazilian military police is a welcome breath of fresh air. "Jesse" and "James" here are actually felons serving long prison sentences who were released for Father's Day to spend time with their families. Sorry kids, but Daddy would rather rob a market!

You know that feeling in chess where you suddenly realize just how stupid your last move was? That's a real-life feeling we expect these bumbling Chinese and Russian criminals experienced when they realized just how badly their little police chase and pizzeria robbery were going. But nope, nobody cuts their losses and flips the chessboard here! They bravely foolishly keep going and hope things will turn out better... all the way to the bitter, embarrassing checkmate.
If the earth was "alive" in a human sense, we really hope she's a pacifist. These insane videos from show exactly what would happen to people who get on the wrong side of Mother Nature. It's terrifying!
A Chinese couple is talking business at the side of their van when suddenly, they're both swallowed by the massive "mouth" opening at their feet! Thankfully, the heavy van leaning precariously over the trapped two doesn't follow suit. View Now

There's nothing more terrifying during a dark night drive than when headlights light up your cabin on the wrong side of the road. A collision at highway speed can be a death sentence but these two not-at-fault Aussie drivers miraculously walk away from these horrific wrong-way-driver accidents caught on dashcam.
Better to get someplace late than never at all, folks!
It's rare to risk a prison sentence without a really good reason. We're talking paying the bills, revenge, love, whatever. We're having trouble fitting these criminals into a category because their crimes are as pointless and impulsive as they are brutal.

Every restaurant has secrets that it holds dear. From Coke to the Krabby Patty, special sauces and recipes keep us coming back and spending our money. But after discovering the "secret sauce" at this Kazakh burger joint, we've unanimously decided that what we don't know about our favorite brands and special recipes... can't hurt us.
This well-meaning but absolutely unhygienic chef was actually trying to speed up the burger preparation process when he orally sprays the patties with a generous saliva/tap water mixture. He's since been canned.
It doesn't take a career criminal to understand that if you're risking jail time, it pays to have a plan. We're guessing our first dynamic duo's plan ended at the door because just seconds after backing through the glass doors at this Australian convenience store, these robbers-turned-vandals are back in their truck on their merry way empty-handed.
Police aren't amused... though we got a good laugh from these second burglars from Hungary who forgot to double-bag their loot.
Criminals either don't notice CCTV cameras or care that they are being recorded. The suspect in the first video slashed 35 tires on 16 cars in this used car sales lot in Wales.

There are few attacks more brutish and heartless than the one targeted at this poor elderly couple as they rode home in a taxi after a pleasant evening at the theatre. Months later, Birmingham South police have FINALLY arrested the group of five teens that allegedly threw the bricks that left the 70-year-old woman with a fractured skull.
We think the hilarious karma of this second video almost makes up for the belated justice in the first video. View Now

The city of Baltimore has been dealing with bike gangs for years--they're riding dirt bikes, quads, anything that goes ZOOM. They're fast, they're furious, and until now, they've ruled the streets because police pursuits make the road even more dangerous for Baltimorians.
This unique "Mad Max" situation is beginning to turn heads across the U.S. In reaction, the city's launched a brand-new four-officer task force to take down these underground racers.
We're just surprised they haven't called Tom Hardy yet!
These two crime videos will make your blood boil. Two thieves casually stole from the back of this vehicle at a stop light in South Africa. Luckily, they only managed to grab a few of the items from the back before the truck drove off.
Then, watch as a robber holds a knife to the throat of a worker in a floral shop demanding cash. After telling her to get the on the ground he leaves some money for a tip and then takes off.
Who knew a robbery can't happen if you ignore it?
This cool-headed Christchurch souvlaki shop employee continues to make and receive orders as the bandit waves his gun around and points to the VERY obvious loot bag on the counter. Eventually, the frustrated and underappreciated robber gets so impatient he actually leaves!

It's hard to understand the criminal mind if you never committed a crime yourself. This surveillance video shows patrons removing a painting from a pizzeria and leaving the premises. The pizzeria offered a $100 gift card for the $500 painting's return. The painting was returned and the pizzeria does not plan to press any charges because they believe this was all a prank. View Now
Persistence even in the face of challenge is a trait that's universally applauded.

Smart criminals keep their distance from law enforcement when any lawbreaking goes down. Others decide to barefoot kick an automatic door at a police station and go inside for a chat. Whether it was an actual strategic decision or just a desire to have a place to sleep and eat, 33-year-old Luke Matthew Hainsworth found himself back behind bars for the second time that day in Gosford, New South Wales in Australia.

Your last instinct when you see something dangerous (like an escaped tiger at a zoo) is to run towards it for an epic smackdown.
Rajinder Birk, a Calgary, Alberta shop owner, becomes one of the 1% who'd tackle the proverbial tiger when he locks two armed robbers inside his store with him. Armed with a baseball bat he corners the panicked thieves until a stray bullet nearly kills him. The robbers finally manage to shot their way of the locked door.
Meanwhile, a Georgia hotel clerk keeps a cooler head when a masked bandit robs the hotel where she works.
Shop employees are often trained to fully cooperate during a robbery. Lives are more valuable than anything that can be stolen, the rationale goes.
When criminals try to take advantage of mom-and-pop stores, all bets are off. Store security cameras captured an enraged Wolverhampton , England, shop owner ferociously fighting off an armed bandit with a mere stepladder. View Now
