  • It must have seemed like a good idea at the time....

    It's never amusing when someone dies, I realize that, really I do, but to be honest, imagining the scenario still rather tickles me; from ABC.com:

    An American senior citizen killed an
    alleged mugger with his bare hands, and his traveling companions aboard
    a tour bus fended off two other assailants in the Atlantic coast city
    of Limon, police said.

    The American, who is about 70 years old and retired from the
    military, put the 20-year-old in a head lock and broke his clavicle
    after the suspect and two other men armed with a knife and gun held up
    their tour bus, said Luis Hernandez, the police chief of Limon, 80
    miles east of San Jose. The suspect, Warner Segura, was later declared
    dead, apparently from asphyxiation.

    The two other men fled when the 12 senior citizens started defending
    themselves during the Wednesday attack. Afterward, the tourists drove
    Segura to the Red Cross where he was declared dead. The Red Cross also
    treated one of the tourists for an anxiety attack, Hernandez said

    The tourists left on their Carnival cruise ship after the incident and Hernandez said authorities do not plan to press charges against them.

    Boy howdy, that planned robbery didn't come off as expected, did it?  Easy pickin's, the three assailants must have gleefully assured each other.  A bunch of senior citizens from a cruise ship?  Ha!  They'll squeal like little girls then hand over their money and jewelry, for sure.

    Or not.  e-nogood
