All they want is a little English

Robbers shot a lawn care worker when they tried to rob him because the man didn't speak English and couldn't understand their demands. "Just give them what they want!" A foolish idea. This didn't work out so well either:
The lawn care workers did not want to talk on camera in fear of retaliation, but said they work in pairs for protection. However, one man was mowing the lawn and another man was weeding when two black men with a gun came up and demanded money.
I know what would provide better protection in pairs.

I'd be willing to bet that the attempts at communication would have been pretty entertaining if not for the situation.
