brausso, you missed the point. You didn't say the armed robber was after drugs. If you had, I would have agreed with you.
What you said was, "It's a shame what drugs do to people...". The implication being that it wasn't really his fault because DRUGS MADE HIM PULL THE ARMED ROBBERY.
That line of reasoning is similar to the old Flip Wilson joke where Flip says, "The Devil made me do it!" Meaning, of course, that whatever Flip had done wrong wasn't his fault, but The Devil's.
My advice isn't for everyone. It's primarily for legally armed citizens who refuse to be victims.
