In the case of the would-be-robbers, I guess you sometimes don't know what you're getting into ... Promote this thread!

Glad to hear they arent going to press charges against him.

(tsk, tsk) EVERYBODY knows that you never bring a gun to a Marine fight. Well, ok, I guess nobody told these kids, but come on. It's basic. They should have known better. What? They didn't KNOW he was a Marine?! Somebody must have removed his warning label! I guess ya just can't tell who to rob these days. knife < gun < Marine "Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots.

Seemed very humble & sorry for what he had to do. Definitely worth chacking out.

AIM: # 5 Posted on 31.5.06 1627.07 | Instant Rating: 5.57 Here's hoping they find, arrest, charge, and jail the rest of the little bastards involved in this. Now I'll never be able to lead SPF's spfers! (The W)

A pocket knife could be anything from your run-of-the-mill Swiss Army 2" blade to something like... this I am glad he's not being charged. When worse really did come to worse it's good he had some means to defend himself.

This account ( http://www.11alive.com/news/news_article.aspx?storyid=80494), says a box cutter - good thing he hadn't gone through airport security We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
I'd say it's HARDLY a "shame". It would've been a shame if he had won and retired undefeated and if people would've tried to put him up there with Marciano, when clearly he was never, EVER, the best fighter even in his own weight class.
