Today’s Surveillance Video of the Month depicts something that would-be bad guys should always remember: never take your eyes off your hostage – especially if they’re wearing a cowboy hat!

The would-be gunman was in the process of sticking up a local market when an unaware customer approaching from behind distracted him. He took his eyes off and unassuming looking customer in a cowboy hat near the register. That’s when everything went South for the perpetrator. Watch and delight as this would-be bad guy gets justice served–cowboy style!
