I hate to sound morbid, since someone did die as a result, but I loved this story (comcast.net).

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

So I guess the old saying about bringing a knife to a gun fight doesnt apply.

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

StaggerLee, StaggerLee.... (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

The story is now at CNN.com along with a 3 minute video interview with the guy ... Seemed very humble & sorry for what he had to do. Definitely worth chacking out.

Here's hoping they find, arrest, charge, and jail the rest of the little bastards involved in this.

Anyone know if they mentioned what kind of knife he was carrying? 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.

Call me weird but Alyssa Milano has always done nothing for me. Ever since a friend of mine way back in her Whose the Boss days told me he thought she was fine (we were both teenagers at the time and so was she, so its ok)
