This quote of yours is so silly that I can't believe you are a real cop.
Beat says: Is a pack of Newports and $40 bucks worth getting killed over?
Let me explain. It's not the loss of money or goods that justifies dropping armed robbers. It is the deadly threat they pose to you and yours by pointing a gun at you. And, unless you are a mind-reader, you can't possibly know before they pull the trigger if they are just after a payday, or if they intend to murderer you.
My advice isn't for everyone. It's primarily for legally armed citizens who refuse to be victims.
